Frequently Asked Questions
How tall are you?
I am 1.88m / 6’2ft.
Are your parents tall?
My father is, my mum is a shorty.
What Camera do you use?
I mainly use a Canon EOS M3. It fits easily in a bigger handbag and it is easy to use.
Sometimes I also snap with my iPhone 6. The hobbit uses a Canon 5D Mark III, so some pics are snapped with that one.
How come you speak (and write) pretty decent English?
Thank you for the compliment. A few things:
1. In NL, we get taught languages from a very young age. We are a tiny country with
great trading history, but no one speaks Dutch apart from us, so we have to adapt if
we want to play the international trading game.
2. Unlike a lot of European countries where English TV programs get dubbed, ours get
subtitled. This gives us a huge advantage as we hear English throughout the years we are growing up, while we are susceptible to other languages.
3. I speak English at home a lot as my husband is British and he doesn’t speak Dutch
(and who would want to learn Dutch if you have that incredible British Accent? 🙂 )
4. I speak English at work as I work in an international environment and the first
language in our office is English.
5. I briefly studied English Translation. Though I did not fully finish that, I did obtain a certificate of proficiency in English language from the University of Cambridge.
Do you make money from your blog?
My blog is a creative outlet, a fun place where I get to write about things I am passionate about and through which I connect with lovely people all over the world. I invest a lot of resources in creating beautiful content.
I am grateful to be of service and bring you beautiful content free of charge. In order to do this, please note that when you click links and purchase items, in certain cases I might receive a referral commission, this is a very small amount that you can see as a tip from the company thanking me for the referral. Your support in purchasing through these links enables me to keep me creating posts about products you want to read about and empower more people worldwide to blog with less worry and less hassle. Thank you!
Sometimes, I am offered to try or review a product for free; in that case, I will indicate it is a collaboration. Should sponsored content be featured, I will indicate so as well.
Rest assured that everything I write is my own honest view and my own experience. I would not be able to write passionately about something if I did not truly like it or if I am not behind it. More importantly, the integrity of my blog is my first priority!
