"Don't tell people your dreams. Show them! "

One of my dreams came true... a few months ago I was able to present to you my very first collection! An important moment that I will cherish all my life... but being able to continue it is even more special to me! 😍 I owe that to you... Your support & love gave me a lot of motivation to continue 'Self Love'. You confirm it: loving yourself is oh so important! A big thank you and lots of love! 💌

Never stop dreaming... 
'Self Love' is the ultimate dream collection for me: 80 unique pieces, designed by myself, for each of you - all of you strong, confident & beautiful women!

'Self Love II' is all about 'dreaming'... My inspiration? My sons & myself! 😍
I am 100% a daydreamer myself! Just dream away for a while to another, nice world where everything is possible and where you can let your thoughts run free 😊 It provides more creativity in my work and even more peace of mind!

Imaginative
Also with my oldest son Cis I can often discover that fantasy world! He turned 7 this week... 7 years?! Come on... Everything in my head, heart and body has only just processed that the baby-toddler period is now really over, but now that that number is going more towards 10 than 5, I realize once again that we should enjoy every moment together! 🤗

I can watch Cis for hours... In his eyes I can almost see his dreams come by!
The greatest adventures come by at night and during the day he can just drop everything and then he takes pen, paper, scissors and glue and starts making crafts that he saw passing by somewhere in his head!
He has always done this since he could...

So recognizable
Just like mom... So very recognizable hihi! 🙈 As a child I too could dream for hours... First about fairytales and princesses... About elves and fairies...
My outfits always had a high Disney content... Flower dresses, tulle skirts, hair bands and bows! I stood in front of the mirror for hours dancing and singing and that continued in my dreams at night!

Later when I studied fashion, discovered photography and then started painting, I always found my inspiration in my dreams... I could really go to sleep with a feeling or an idea, dream about it all night and get up with a plan or a design!
Next to my bed there was also a dream book in which I regularly wrote or sketched something when I woke up ✍️

Daydreamer
I cannot live without dreams... Not only at night, but also during the day, my mind or fantasy does not stand still! I try to walk on some kind of cloud every day... ☁️ & enjoy every little thing! My cup of coffee in the morning sun, that walk in the woods, the cat purring on the couch, the silence or music, the laugh of Cis & Vin and the sound and feeling of our family.
I will never stop dreaming... Every day is full of beautiful things that can inspire me endlessly! ❤️

This outfit is an ode to my creative journey... I only went to beautiful Kattenbos to dream away in this dreamy outfit!
The white basic shirt 'Dreamy Lily' doesn't need any more words... and the creamy Follow Your Dreams tutu had to be added... Because whether you are 5, 33 or 53... Every girl deserves to dream away to your best dreams every now and then 🎀 To feel like a carefree young girl or princess every now and then... 👸 On a nice day like this, this one makes you extra happy and on a bad day, you just take the skirt out of the closet, put it on and shake... shake it all off! Highly recommended hihi. I have them in a lot of colors, both in a short and longer version for an extra WOW effect!

Keep following your dreams, wether they are big or small and I promise you a lot of happiness and self-love! ❤️
