Born to blog...

I have been blogging for almost two years, and I have been slightly mysterious about my intentions, so there you go:

The blogname "Mlle Wanderlust': Wanderlust as travelling has been a part of me since a young girl. Slightly spoiled and with a couple of bohemian parents, they took me places! Even a born and raised Dutch girl, I've spend so much time swimming in Spanish pools and later in Florida seas that I feel like the proper world-person. My first non-Dutch words were 'helados' (icecream), towels (after swimming) and later 'sawadee Kah' (hello in Thai).

I've started out being a mademoiselle (girl) and now I'm reaching the madame (woman) territory. I think I'll keep the Mlle name as my personality is still more girl than polished woman.

Style is more important than fashion, but I like fashion for playing with personal imagery. I'd prefer a feminine look over tomboy: however, Dutch cold will often get me into trousers & sweaters instead of my beloved dresses 'n skirt. Effortless is not really my game but I won't go into too much pain for beauty either: the middle way perhaps.

I often read the word 'nice' in the comments and I am truly flattered to be seen as a nice blogger. Truth is that I can be terribly honest at times being. I'm also one that stands up for herself and if I do the word 'nice' would not easily pop up again. Nevertheless, I aim to be nice as niceness is underrated.

The blog is not just narcisstic imagery: for me its about looking unexpected, fashion savvy and making people laugh and feel good about themselves. Perhaps people 'feel' this when they visit my blog, and that might be a part that I have some regular readers!
