I have just been so inspired this weekend. Yesterday I watched the film 'Obama: The Final Year', about the efforts of his Foreign Policy team to try and achieve as much as possible in their last year in office (it's on Netflix). They focus on the humanitarian crisis in Syria, the Paris climate agreement, the Iran nuclear deal... They work so hard to try and make a difference, solve disputes through diplomacy instead of war, they see so much hardship - for instance Obama's Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power. She is one special lady (with a special name), who fights tiredlessly for the rights of the 65 million displaced people globally. There is so much more we can do, so much more we must do. I will try and work harder to help change this world for the better - make it more fair and sustainable for everyone. Especially now, two years later and we see the progress halting due to Trump reversing some essential agreements. We can't look away, even it seems there is only a slight chance we succeed. We are obliged to use every advantage we have been given to support those who were born in a different situation. Thank you Barack and Michelle Obama and so many other visionary leaders for your inspiration. It's up to us. It's difficult, but we've created this society, so we can change it too. Every single one of us can influence their lives and surroundings in a positive way. And then one by one, like a wave, the sea of change ripples through... Yes we can.

There are such amazing people in this world. Who will hold you, support you and love you - no matter what. Who are your best friend, your honest critic and your most loyal partner. Who make you laugh, cry with you and join you in silence. Who are just always there - and who shouldn't be taken for granted. A tribute to my extremely wonderful husband, the most loving, helpful, kind and selfless person I've the honour of knowing. I wouldn't know what to do without you (and I don't want to know either). Tag your special person(s) if you want to, or at least think about them extra - shall we tell them and/or spoil them rotten today? :) x

This! It is so true...I've really experienced this again while finishing the international book. One day you feel you've totally got it, and fly through whatever you need to do. While the next day you might all of a sudden think your work's not worth much, and it's quite hard to make it happen. You are who and what you believe to be, and can put your mind to (almost) anything to achieve it. Have a fab day x

I have to deliver my international book at the printer's is in a few days, and in times of deadlines, what can be better than amazing messages of (Dutch) readers? Well, in any times, really! Over a year after 'Dit is een goede gids - voor een duurzame lifestyle' was released, I'm still so, so grateful and overwhelmed to receive your wonderful feedback. It's a real honour to hear you read, enjoy and use it... Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart, you have really made this journey worth every second of working hard, late, holidays and weekends.

FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK * Never again * 24/04/2013 // garment factory Rana Plaza collapses * 1.138 people die // over 2.500 injured // for our clothes * since: safety in Bangladesh has improved, wages and working hours haven't * this heartbreaking, haunting picture was made by Bangladeshi photographer and activist Taslima Akhter * the day after, she spent all day at the site, while the hurt and deceased workers were carried away * she stumbled across this couple in the rubble, holding each other in a final embrace * despite trying to find out, she still doesn't know who they are * in remembrance, and for all who work so, so hard to make our outfits, ask: WHO MADE MY CLOTHES?

I can't believe it was 5 years ago that Rana Plaza collapsed. What a historic day, and how extraordinary that it got turned into such a powerful tool for change, in remembrance of the 1.138 people who lost their lives and over 2,500 who got injured. A huge, huge thank you to all the amazing trailblazers, changemakers and pioneers who made this happen, from @fash_rev founders @orsoladecastro and @carrysomers, to all the people we maybe don't see, but who on an everyday basis work so hard to make the fashion industry a better place. Women's groups, campaigners, trade unionists, ethical brands, researchers, consumers who use their voice and wallets for good. And of course the workers themselves, who are brave enough to risk everything and stand up for what is right. I have so, so much respect for them (and am so honoured to have met a fair few). As I have for this incredible woman. Safia Minney, founder of @PeopleTree and @slavetofash, director of @po_zu, social entrepreneur avant-la-lettre and such an incredible inspiration. It was wonderful to see you again last night, thank you so much for your drive to improve people's lives. There is still so much to do - especially because since Rana Plaza safety may have improved in Bangladesh, but wages, workers' hours and lead times haven't. But with women like you on the team, I'm convinced we will win. I will work even harder today, knowing that we do it together, for the real people who dress us everyday. Let's stand up, and ask our favourite brands (I am wearing People Tree in this picture): 'Who made my clothes?'.

Happy Earth Day! We celebrated early, with an amazing picknick yesterday (thanks so much @annevanmidden and @stijsen) in such beautiful and breathtaking nature... How could we not protect it, from plastic, pollution and litter? Every little helps, it really does - say no to plastic straws, buy as little packaging as you can, pick up bottles, wrappers and bags on the street, there is so much you can do. We will be picking up everything we see lying and flying around today - to prevent birds from choking, oceans from filling up and trees from being wrapped up. Want to join me? x
