    My thoughts on child birth

    Amsterdam is in full spring bloom! The city fields and roadsides are sprinkled with daffodils and flower stands are overflowing with tulips. Our house is all of a sudden so bright and colourful, with loads of that beautiful crisp, early-year sunshine beaming in and tons of little vases and baskets with flowers scattered about. I love this time of year!

    With Easter only a couple of weeks away, we just set up our traditional Easter tree. Normally I get some branches of pussy willow for this purpose, but this year we used the cuttings of our neighbour’s cherry tree that he kindly gave to us. They are blossoming so beautifully!

    Even Nonrebels Will Want to Go Punk

    Life is tough when you’re incapable of ordering swimwear online because you don’t know how it’s going to fit or look - and, well, we get you. With a million-and-one options out there, it feels close to impossible to choose. Not that we ever choose just one (or two, if we’re being honest), but still, being presented with a ‘swim’ page featuring 700+ options can feel overwhelming to say the least.

    But from curvier frames to athletic body types, we're helping to make sense of the endless swimwear options and narrowing them down to the style categories that were made to fit and flatter every frame.

    The classic 50s pin-up bikini is almost as famous as the women who wore them - and for good reason too.

    Best for those: who are

    A Belgian Architect in Paris

    KNOWN FOR…

    his keen sense of understated elegance, Belgian architect Nicholas Schuybroek began his career in Canada before returning to Antwerp to work alongside renowned designer Vincent Van Duysen. A few years later, in 2011 Schuybroek struck out on his own – establishing his eponymous firm and distinct brand of minimal yet soulfully warm design. In the years since, the architect/designer has turned out an array of projects ranging from houses on the Cote d’Azur, and hotels in Chicago, to offices in Belgium and high design home accessories. His finely tuned sense of balance, space, and material have won Schuybroek international accolades, including a spot on AD France’s top 100 Designers in 2013, 2015, and 2017. If you’ve yet to acquaint yourself with his enviable aesthetic, this Paris apartment just may be the perfect first peek into his beautiful world…

    iPhone 8 review Impressions Review for you

    The Good The iPhone 8 offers wireless charging, lightning-fast performance and small but solid upgrades to its camera, screen and speakers. Its starting storage size is a roomy 64GB, double that of the iPhone 7.

    The Bad This phone has the same pedestrian design, missing headphone jack and battery life as the iPhone 7 -- and no dual camera either. The iPhone 8 costs a bit more than baseline new iPhones in years past, and comes only in black, silver and a new shade of gold.

    The Bottom Line The sensible, speedy iPhone 8 makes a nice upgrade to the iPhone 6S and earlier siblings, but we won't know until November how it compares to the much pricier iPhone X.

    On Nov. 3,  Apple will roll out its seductive spo
