Nearly 100% organic and all incredibly delicious, I found two unexpected favourites… the Cranberry Orange WTF and the Lemon Lekkerding – so packed full of flavour! YUM!
My husband is going to have to fight me for the rest! Though, truth be told…he already told me he’s expecting an empty box by the time he comes home from work… I’m trying to save him a Chewy Chocolate Whoa-Baby, and maybe a Chocolate Chip OMG too… maybe… ;-)

Wow! The past two days have been phenomenal! I have so many blog posts waiting to be written and client sessions I want to share, but this, this I have to blog about right NOW!
I just spent two amazing days with Zach and Jody Gray from Gray Photography – and these guys are just incredible, they’re so inspiring and such great fun to be around. I’m absolutely elated that they brought their IN-CAMERA: Light and their Business and Marketing: Executing the Dream workshops to The Hague and was able to attend. Huge thanks to Anouschka and Ray from Lifestyle Fotografie for making it all happen!! I had an absolute blast, and loved meeting all the other photographers too, many of whom I knew from Twitter and Facebook – it was so great to connect in person.
As a result of the workshop, and especially the shoot in The Hague, I now see in a completely different way and I’m totally excited to put all these new tricks into practice. It was so great to work with a high-powered strobe outdoors and it’s definitely something I’d like to do more of. I’m totally inspired! I’m totally giddy too! ;-)
Let me share some of the photos I took… enjoy!
Here’s a before (natural light only):
And the rest are after (natural daylight + one high-powered studio strobe = awesome!)
The models, Stephanie and Angela were fabulous to work with! Thanks girls! :)
Be sure to head over to Zach and Jody’s blog to check out a couple of my behind-the-scenes photos and some of their awesome photos from Tuesday’s lighting shoot!
Many thanks to my wonderful clients for making 2010 a fabulous year! And thank you to everyone for your support, encouragement, and kind comments here on my blog, on Facebook, Twitter and in person, it’s much appreciated!
Here’s wishing you a fabulously Happy New Year celebration tonight. See you in 2011, may it be a bright and prosperous New Year for you all!!
I don’t know about where you are, but here in The Hague, autumn seemed to pass in the blink of an eye! On a damp and drizzly day in November, I met the beautiful H. Family. They were absolutely fabulous, and totally rocked their family session in Clingendael Park, even braving the rain!
Having endured several days of stormy winds, there weren’t so many leaves left on the trees, but the floor was a sea of gold. So beautiful!
Finding shelter from the rain…
They were an absolute delight to photograph!
And when we were done, it was (finally!) time to climb trees… ;-)
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

My good friend and fellow photographer, Vinita Salomé and I signed up for the FREE event and excitedly waited for the day to arrive!
That day, was yesterday: Monday 15 November 2010!
Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an initiative to inspire young people to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity. The week is a worldwide movement of entrepreneurial people, with millions unleashing their entreprising talents and turning their ideas into reality.
The Women’s Business Initiative International (WBII) also takes part in GEW and so I headed over to the WBII for their GEW Kick Off Business Lunch where the topic of the round table was “Magnify your Marketing Message, how to effectively use your personal network and social media tools to grow your business”. Then it was a quick dash to the train station to meet Vinita and we were on our way to an aircraft hanger at Rotterdam – The Hague Airport for the official opening of GEW Netherlands and Meet the Dragons!
The event was much bigger than I had anticipated and we were so happy to be part of the audience. It was all very exciting!!
The dragons were introduced and took to the stage: Arjen de Koning (Founder & CEO Paradigit Group), Henk Keilman (Founder & CEO RIG Investments), Willem Sijthoff (Renowned Media Entrepreneur) and Rachel Elnaugh (Renowned Serial Entrepreneur, and also a Dragon on the first two series of BBC’s Dragon’s Den). It was all very dramatic with big music and big lighting, quite spectacular!
But without a doubt, the highlight of the event was the official opening by UK’s Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, and the keynote speech by Rachel Elnaugh.
Nick Clegg stressed the importance of entrepreneurship as an essential ingredient for economic recovery, and surprised the audience by speaking in Dutch too. You can watch his opening speech here: Part 1 and Part 2.
Rachel Elnaugh captivated the audience with her keynote about ‘The Extrepreneurial Rollercoaster Ride’. Speaking of her first entrepreneurial venture, Red Letter Days, which was generating £1million profit per year at it’s height; she showed incredible strength in recovering from it’s failure and her story was extremely inspiring.
She shared the following fabulous tips.. take note!
Find your passion
Go it alone, put yourself at the helm of your business
Dare to be different
Strong brands sell – you have 7 seconds to engage a potential customer
Focus on sales, sales, sales
Your customers are your biggest marketing department
Defend your energy, stay positive and manage your motivation
Never say die – there is always a solution, there is always an answer, if you look for it
