WHO IS ESMEE RUDOLF ?
“As a photographer I’m always surrounded by different kinds of light. If it’s day- or flashlight, a picture needs light to develop. That’s how I came up with LUX, which means light in Latin.
If I have to choose what describes me best, a drifter, dancer, sun worshipper, risk taker, a dreamer, lover, believer or change maker, I see myself more as a risk taker. I quit my full time job to be a freelancer and I recently moved nearby Amsterdam to let my blog grow and stand on my own (all the way from Groningen).
I was born in the south of the Netherlands and raised in the north! My new hometown is Zaandam, by train it’s only 15 minutes from Amsterdam! That’s what I like the most about it ;). But if I could choose a city to live in, it would be Berlin! The architecture, international vibe and people are just great. To be honest, I didn’t have much love for Germany before I visited the country. Now I just think it’s amazing.
I keep myself motivated by the fact that I like to put in all the effort necessary for something to work and that it shows in the results. I’m most proud of my cat Mellow, my beautiful home, boyfriend and of course my blog!
I would love to make a road trip through the West coast in the US! I’ve always wanted to do a trip by car and this looks like the most beautiful vacation! Just free to go wherever the road takes you and no places where you’re obligated to stay.
One of my best beauty buys is my YSL bag, because it took me a long time to save all the money! So that’s my precious right now.
La vie est belle from Lancome is definitely my favorite perfume. For me it’s a classic fragrance and a real must have item.
MY BEAUTY TIPS & TRICKS
I don’t use special beauty products for my skin. I don’t smoke and don’t drink any alcohol. My beauty tip: give your body lots of water! When I drink plenty of water, I don’t feel the urge to drink sodas or anything.
STYLISH LIKE THAT
I don’t really have a style muse. There’s just too much to love and like. 🙂
My own style in once sentence…minimal, clean and feminine.
Most of the time I shop online! But I also love to stroll around the “9 straatjes” in Amsterdam whenever I have the time to do so.
MEAL PLAN / FOOD PORN
My wining & dining spots:
- Sushi: for the win – wherever they serve sushi count me in!
- Van ‘t Spit: if you ever visit Amsterdam, go visit this spot. They only serve chicken! Yeah!
You can wake me up for? Just like stated above, sushi!
STILL NEED TO DO
On my bucket list? To travel at least one time each month this year!
THE PAPILLON REBELLE IN ME
The rebellious butterfly in me, would be the tom boy in me. I always was one of the guys, but still a lady when being with my girls. Next to being a lady, you can find me in sweat pants, sweat shirt and sneakers to show my other self.
You can find the tom boy in me, every day of the week, it depends on the occasion and my state of mind. When I feel like dressing up formal, you can find me in heels or otherwise it’s sneaker time.”
