December is all about going back to basis and focussing on what really matters in life. In particular: warm tea and fuzzy socks, an easy Sunday with favorite friends, anything Ryan Gosling related, a fresh batch of magazines, perhaps a lit fireplace – and hey, are those red velvet cupcakes I see?!
This second Monthly Editorial on This chick’s got style (see the first edition at the beach here! – there will be a new one ever first Monday of the month) is a photo story that features fun contrasts. A brunette with a blonde, bare legs with warm socks, being bundled up inside while little raindrops hit the windows. My stunning friend Anna and I got cozy and captured our ultimate lazy December afternoon – one that’s best spent in a beautiful place that feels homely and is decorated with love. Pretty much the characteristics of Maison Rika, an intimate designer guest house tucked away in one of the prettiest streets in town. One of those Amsterdam gems where you instantly feel at home between the passionately put together interior and sea of blankets to disappear in.
