2015.. What a year! Got pregnant, got engaged, ended up having an atrocious delivery, emergency c-section, then a beautiful angel arrived in my life and literally turned it upside down.. Finally we moved to a different country, with a new born aarrgghh!! If you think that would have been easy.. Think again! Actually, I should have thought twice! Naive me! 2015.. We still have a trimester to go! Please, spare me! I seriously would do with some boredom..
I wish my only worry at this stage was to lose the baby weight. That went in no time!! (20kg in less than 6 weeks.. I Should actually consider a career at the Weight Watchers!!). I think the stress added to the breast-feeding played a massive role! But hey, we keep the result, Thank you very much!
So here i am! In a new city i dont know and especially i dont speak the language, with a newborn and a very busy fiance! This will translate into a lot of exploring, possibly getting lost and probably misunderstood.. But I am in excellent company of Emma and I am curios about this new life!
On a sartorial level, I left behind, for now, my job in Mayfair in London.. With all the fancy aspects which were coming with it and swapped it for a full time mom job.. which trust me, it is 10 times harder! I often think i was never this tired in the evening, even after a full day with overtime! But I have to admit, when Emma smiles at me, there is no yearly bonus worth the same! It just means a lot of flat shoes and simple chic outfits which fit better with my life at the moment!
But I did bring to Holland a little Mayfair corner.. My new Chanel! It was a ‘well deserved’ push present for giving Menno the most beautiful daughter! I am not planning on a second baby but since I can make cute ones.. If you ask me, next time it would be a Birkin!

  1. Glad that I saw your comment on QueenOfJetlags instagram post! I am new to Amsterdam too, mother for the first time, do not speak Dutch and have left my job for this full time mom job 🙂
    2014 was the same for me as 2015 is for you!
    So, in case you and Emma need two girls who can explore cool coffee places and playgrounds with you, you have my email 🙂
    Good luck and enjoy!
