Vintage movie night – 1960s New York

Who doesn’t love a good movie night? Kick your feet up, turn down the lights and disappear into a world of glamour. I adore vintage glamour. The kind people would admire on the silver screen back in the days. Men in sharp suits wearing hats, women with gorgeous hair and fabulous dresses. I love to get lost in vintage movies, and get overwhelmed by a pleasant feeling of historical nostalgia.

There are so many, many famous movies perfect for a vintage movie night: “Rebel Without a Cause” starring James Dean or Marlon Brando acting tough in “The Wild One”. And utterly amazing movies and shows that were inspired by the fifties and sixties: “Mad Men”, “Happy Days” and yes, “Grease”. Who doesn’t love Grease?

Today, I’m sharing some of my favourite vintage movies, that always make me feel good. As I was writing this, I realized I could go on for hours talking about the movies that have a special place in my heart. So I decided to break it up into a little series. First up: 1960s New York! (more…)

A Rock ‘n Roll Travel Guide – Paris

Paris is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Eiffel Tower, a stroll down the Champs-Élysées and admiring the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci at the Louvre are obvious musts when you travel to Paris. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Paris!

This is our top 10! (more…)

A Rock ‘n Roll travel guide – Oslo

Oslo is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, a stroll down the Karl Johans Gate and admiring “The Scream” by Munch at the National Gallery are obvious musts when you travel to Oslo. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Oslo!

Bang Bang Bazooka

Bang Bang Bazooka is a Rockabilly band from Eindhoven, Rock City. These guys have been making great music since 1987 and have released four radical albums in the last 30 years! In the original formation, with Bartmann (Peter Pan Speedrock) on bass, BBB released two albums. Later on, Bartmann left the band as PPSR was taking up most of his time.

On the fourth album, “Red Hot & Horny” released in 2013, drummer Marc Burger (Liptease) and bassplayer Eric Haamers (Batmobile) were part of the line-up. Eric recently left BBB, to focus on Batmobile, as they have just released a brand new album (“Brand New Blisters”) for the first time in 20 years. As of now, Jesse van der Heijden (Liptease) is in charge of the bass lines.

Bang Bang Bazooka might just be the best Rockabilly band in Holland, and is without a doubt one of our favourite bands. We love this band so much, we asked them to play at our wedding back in 2011. (more…)

Big Bad Handsome Man Ukulele Cover

Valentine’s Day. The perfect occasion for being romantic and lots of random acts of kindness. Whether or not you’re a fan of this love-themed day, I feel a little extra display of affection never hurts.

This year, I decided to do something sweet and record a pretty little ditty for the love of my life. Ever since the Greaser bought me my beautiful Fender Ukulele for Christmas, I’ve been obsessed with playing my mini-guitar and singing along. What could be sweeter than singing him a song? (more…)

Looking back on 2016

It seems like only yesterday we were putting together a list of our plans for 2016. The year has flown by and so much has happened! The world is shaking, but we prefer to focus on the positives in life today. Because wow – what a year it’s been.

At the beginning of the year, after celebrating a ridiculous luscious Christmas with our family and friends, we posted our plans for the year to come. It’s fun to look back at this, as this post has truly been our game plan for the year.

As you may know by now; we are planners, we pay a lot of attention to detail and we love it when a plan comes together. And boy, did our plans come together. 2016 has been a year of a lot of hard work, but it paid off! We are incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished and of course beyond thankful for your support!
