Hidden Happiness!

My BFF made some plum jam with beautiful ripe plums and lots of love.
It tastes delicious with a thick slice of freshly baked bread, great for a big Easter breakfast with my family today. 
I am a lucky girl with a friend like that.
These personal presents in life, makes me smile and are little pieces of hidden happiness.

Enjoy your Easter weekend!

Beautiful & cool Mayra

Love this feminine, colorful, cool, sexy and playful look on model/journalist Mayra.
She is not only beautiful, but also has great personality 
and asked me to shoot these pictures to accompany an article/interview in the Dutch newspaper Het Parool.

Hope she inspires you to wear flashy pink on a pencil skirt and combine with NIKE animal printed hightops.
I know I am :-)

Love my new china by Bloomingville
The small things in life are the little details you can controle. 
So I always try, when possible, to surround myself with beautiful things that put a smile on my face.

Have a nice day today!

Mango Beach

Yesterday I was working on the beach @ Zandvoort aan Zee.
We had a South America theme and the beach house Mango Beach was like a deserted film set. 
Amazing what they did with the place, we actually were in Havana Cuba :-)
The sun was shining and it was around 2 degrees, but with the eastern wind blowing it felt around -15 degrees.
We had great respect for the beautiful model, who had to walk around in summer dresses and sandals.

Toughen up!

I not only like clashing colors & patterns but also clashing a look and feel.
The bottom of this outfit is very rock & roll, tough, a bit sexy and cool, but the top is really soft, warm and maybe even a bit conservative.
I like this contradiction, it is all me!

Wearing a black leather pants by S'Nob, Sendra snake skin boots, Silk blouse by FilipaK and a cardigan by SamsoeSamsoe via Trade Studio
You have seen all garments before in previous outfit posts!  

Thanks you Maartje van den Broek for taking my picture again and again and again :-)

Week review

Went from snow to spring and now back to winter cold again. So I am back in my leather pants with snake skin boots.
But spring is every where around me. In beautiful pistachio colored doors or beautiful settings on location. 
Trying to get use to wearing my hair down and went to the theatre with my mom. 
How was your week?

Have a great weekend!

Hello Spring!

I love an easy do it yourself (DIY) project.
Brought the spring 'IT' colors into my home, by painting a small side-table (i found for €2,50 at a recycle store) and an old stool.
I chose to combine white with a minty-pistache and it worked out quite well.

Hello Spring!

Balance please!

My life is one big rolocoaster at the moment. Going from one extreme to the other and also my emotions.
Like having fun, to relaxed to sad and angry, sometimes all in one day!
Tried capturing them with IBooth in my macbook, because Anna's Choice is about me and I am real. Like you :-)

Remember my new years resolutions? Balance Balance Balance....
I am trying to energize myself with the right food and the gym twice a week.
But still tiered, we need sunshine. It is time for spring and a big spring-break.

What do you do to keep yourself balanced?

Blue sparkles for Spring!

Found these cuties for €5,- in a sale corner at H&M.
I am thinking about blue cropped jeans and a white silk shirt, to compliment these cinderella medium high heels. 
Great hight for working on set without hurting my feet or back.
Let's sparkle !

Once in a while you meet someone who always sticks in your mind and crosses you path.
Meriam is one of those people for me. I see her as a confident beautiful single mom of two little boys.
She is the kind of girl that stays true to herself, strives for pure love, happiness and good food.
Very inspiring and a great example!
And she has the best 80' & 90' earring collection you have ever seen.
Ahhh push it, push it good. Rembember Salt N Peppa? Aghum.. that reveals our age a bit to much :-)

Thank you Meriam for opening up yourself, your closet and your home to me.
Next time the coffee is on me.
