the gibbson girl european photoshoot

Besides having twice as much fun, hanging out with my twin sister also gives me the opportunity to use her as my model for my vintage Etsy shop, The Gibbson Girl. Usually, I photograph myself wearing the vintage styles that I sell in the online shop, but the process is usually tedious and well, not super fun. But I love taking photos of my sister wearing the clothes. Recently, we decked her out in some of my favorite European vintage finds and conducted a photoshoot among the cobblestone streets and narrow canals of Den Bosch.

I think we got some pretty darn good shots! Now you’ll have to check to back soon for these pieces on the Etsy shop. 🙂

tot ziens!

running (free) through the bossche broek

If you’re a runner (or a triathlete), you know how easy it is to get hooked on data: GPS watches, tracking apps, heart rate monitors… Whatever device it is, there is something absolutely addicting about knowing your progress, mile for mile (and often publicly sharing that progress too). But getting caught up in numbers can take away the basic joy of running sometimes. Besides a casual 10k race at the end of this month and triathlon in September, I’m not currently in the throws of training. But still I monitor each run with more gusto than it’s worth. I start to judge the quality of the run based on its length and pace- even for my “fun runs,” which should, after all, be purely for fun.

So today, I left my GPS watch at home and took a (who knows how long!) run through the Bossche Broek. Without a watch, I took moments to pause, take a breath, and really enjoy the scenery. It’s a run like this one that reminds me why I run in the first place.

This is certainly going to be the first of many posts on the charming Dutch town, Den Bosch (aka ‘s-Hertogenbosch). After all, this medieval city is my “home base” for my next couple months in Europe! Not surprisingly, I’ve been battling jet lag for the last couple of days, so yesterday, I packed the day with events around the town to keep me moving. I visited the bibliotheek (the library) which included a sizable cafe and modern design, local shops including sweet vintage stores, the breathtaking gothic church of St. John, and the impressive Het Noordbrabants museum. Today, I plan on taking a bike ride through the beautiful  Bossche Broek.
