A while ago, I wrote about going to Get into the Future – the Dutch tech event organised by De Financiële Telegraaf and SingularityU. A little over two weeks ago this awesome event took place. During the event, 8 innovators spoke about exponential growth and how we can apply these technologies in our daily lives and in our businesses. I’m giving you a small recap of my day at Get into the Future. Due to other commitments in the afternoon, I was only able to attend the beginning of the event. However, I already felt I had information overload from…

Recently, I discovered the Facebook featured photos on my personal account. At first I didn’t know what to do with these top 5 images, but after thinking for a few seconds, I decided I wanted to use them to promote my business. But how? Facebook Featured Photos are 5 different photos at the top of your page to show the world what you are interested in. I saw it as my personal challenge to use these 5 photos as my own free billboard. If you have a business, chances are you have a Facebook business page. This is great, especially…

It’s a funny thing, I am a techie, but I don’t use my digital calender or smartphone. I write in my agenda daily and look at my wrist if I want to know the time. So it’s no surprise that JORD Watches caught my eye on Instagram. The watches are made from wood and have the most beautiful colors. It was difficult to choose just one. I opted for a darker wood color with an emerald green plate because this best matched my glasses. My nerd glasses. My life revolves around technology, but it’s a luxury to be offline once…

If you don’t love holographic accessories as much as I do right now, it’s best not to read this post. If you do decide to continue to read, you might want to put on some sunglasses. The holographic trend is everywhere. The make-up and fashion industries have blown up this movement, so it’s only fair us techies jump on the bandwagon, too. No, Apple has not yet come out with a holographic Macbook, but who knows… For now, let’s stick to holographic accessories. I don’t particularly have a laptop bag, which might seem kind of strange for someone who takes her laptop everywhere.…

I’ve searched high and low for a pink wall in The Hague. Thank goodness José knew where to find one! If you didn’t know, pink walls have been all over Instagram for some time. And I was always jealous of people posing in front of them because they were either in L.A. or some other perfect place. Until José posted a picture of a pink wall…in The Hague!So, I reached out immediately because this was my opportunity to fi-na-lly have a pink background. I’ve lived in The Hague for about 6 years total, and I always thought I knew the city…

The sun’s out, the drinks are cold, what beter way to celebrate than with some music? This week I tested out the Fresh ‘N Rebel Rockbox. A small yet powerful speaker that connects to bluetooth with minimal effort. Great for on-the-go and for going to the beach. Rockbox specs It’s a “tiny but mighty” speaker that connects wirelessly to all different devices. The Fresh ‘N Rebel Rockbox is “made for design lovers as much as for music lovers”, and it doesn’t disappoint. It is covered in special woven fabric, hence the name Fabriq Edition, and comes in many different colors. With this many…

Our lives are busy and chaotic. There’s no doubt in that. Checking emails, groceries, social media, reading news, paying bills – the tasks keep piling up. But in an age of #girlbosses, we sure can handle it. We just need some assistance here and there. Assistance in the form of applications of course! Remember the time I told you I was like Dug the talking dog in Up? Not much has changed since then. Whenever it’s time for me to do something, I always check my phone for messages and run past my social media accounts. I’m 100% positive, I’m…
