I am no writer, but I did manage to get a book published together with my friend Mirjam. So maybe I am a writer, who knows?
The book De Amsterdame, draws inspiration from the book How to be Parisian. A book written by four Parisian friends about life in Paris. I thought the book was a fun read, but could not really relate to the life of Parisian girls. That is how the idea was born; a book about girls from Amsterdam.
De Amsterdame is a book filled with art, fashion, dreams, gold and food. For me personally the underlaying thought while writing De Amsterdame was writing a fun book, but also accepting yourself with aaaaall your flaws. I think today we have to be good in everything, while we all know that’s not possible, we still expect ourself to be perfect. We want to have a awesome career, look amazing, eat plant based food, do yoga, be the perfect friend and be a fantastic lover. And above all, be ecstatically happy and zen at all times.
I hope this book makes you look at life with a smile – realising you are not doing so bad after all.
