Sinterklaas1

Happy Hump Day %

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are having a good week? Luckily, even with all the snow troubles in London, I managed to get to the Netherlands safe and sound on Friday for a wonderful St Nicolas weekend with my family. The streets were all white, covered in snow, which is bizarre SO early for this time of the year but it did make it nice & cosy to be inside eating delicious St Nicolas treats and opening presents. See some pictures from my weekend below. If you are wondering what on earth that “head thing” is that I am holding…..Well my dad had me for secret Sinterklaas and made a “Top Chef” creation out of clay (which is supposed to be me)! I had my brother’s girlfriend and made her a SuperWoman sign. Sinterklaas is a bit of a tricky tradition to explain but basically it’s a time where we all get the opportunity to mock each other and over indulge on sweet treats :) I just ♥ it!
Then after my great weekend back home, I started my new job on Monday! So far, so good :) The people have all very nice, welcoming & helpful. I am busy and learning loads of new things (…a bit of information overload occasionally – but I will get there!) Plus the fact that I got a bottle of Bollinger Champagne and a brand new iPhone4 on my first day definitely put a HUGE smile on my face :)
Speaking of my iPhone4 (which I love love love btw) – I want to get a nice case for it – any suggestions?
Being Happy Hump Day….

Does anyone else ever feel like this?
Lots of love xoxo

Life is good…

Hey lovelies,
I have to admit, life is pretty damn good right now and I’m feeling very happy!
I am stoked to announce that I am officially no longer unemployed! I found a great new job in London and I start on Monday :) I will be working in the city for a Management Consulting company and the people all seem lovely. I can’t  wait for this new exciting phase in my life to really take off!

What else is new? Well I am off home (Netherlands) tomorrow to celebrate Sinterklaas (St Nicolas) with my family. Sinterklaas is a fabulous Dutch tradition that we celebrate on the 5th December – it’s like our Santa Clause and Christmas time. We get presents and eats loads of yummy sweets/cookies! I can’t wait! Well that’s if I make it there……. It’s been snowing like mad here in London and as much as I love this pretty wintery white weather, it’s not ideal when you are trying to leave the country! I have my fingers and toes crossed that my travels will all go smoothly this weekend. Can you cross your fingers and toes for me – it might help?? ;) Not sure if I will be able to blog much the next few days so hope you all have a great weekend! xoxo
