One word. Máxima
I have seen the video ‘De Traan van Maxima’, loosely translated as ‘Maxima’s Tear’ at least 437 times. And I cried all 437 times. Really. If I was an actress and the scene called for crying, I ‘d ask my director to show me this Youtube video of our Queen when she was still Princess, instead of giving me two pieces of raw onion.

The Pirelli Calendar is coming!
I’m eating a ‘kletskop’ biscuit as I’m writing this. You know, one of those delicious wafer thin, crispy biscuits. I’ve convinced myself that they cannot possibly have so many calories and stuff, because they’re so thin, but don’t worry, I know the real truth. Oh well, the reason I started about them was because this Sexy Friday is all about the Pirelli-calendar. Read more.

5 reasons why it is a good idea to buy a designer bag
Several Huge Happenings took place at our office during the last few weeks. A long wait and a lot of dreaming finally resulted in me getting a PS11 from Proenza Schouler and Josselin a Trio Bag from Céline. Josselin had not prepared her girlfriends for the big buy (“they won’t be that interested’) and when the sale was a fact and it appeared on Amayzine, they indeed questioned Joss “why is this bag actually worth so much money?” Joss said something about “it’s an investment!” and she got the reply: “an investment in what actually?” Read more.
It is unbearably hot today. We have an airco unit here at Amayzine HQ, but I have the feeling that hot is air is blowing out of it instead of cold. Unbearable. We keep popping outside every now and then to literally grab a breath of fresh air. Read more.
As you probably already know, I’m in Italy. With my entire clan, and since I seem to have produced blonde little ladies, we are greeted at every establishment with: “Che meraviglia, sono me-ra-vi-glio-se”, “Che belle bionde bimbe” “complimenti” and other flattering things. Wait till they break the place down, because although they may look like little princesses, their behaviour is not always fitting. Read more.
What to wear on a sunny summer’s day? Today we had a taste for pastel. Pink. A little sweet but mostly lovely, soft and the ultimate in summery. You probably won’t be needing the jacket, but it’s great as an evening accessory, for long evenings on the terrace, draped nonchalantly over the shoulders so that the heat lamps are not needed.
