About The Barefoot Diaries

I wanted to create a beautiful space, a playground. A place that I can go to anytime I need to remember my wild and free essence, a place that inspires me and sparks my true colors. A nourishing space to remember our wildness & wisdom. A space where I find solace and softness, clarity and truth and the power of Grace. A space where I can connect with likeminded wildflowers and where we can play, grow, bloom and create together. The Barefoot Diaries is born from that longing.

This multisensory brand is about a Lifestyle that breathes a sense of freedom and spaciousness. That embraces simplicity and enjoys the little things in life while living more and more of our full potential at the same time. It’s a space to slow down and look again. To get a taste of this Barefoot Lifestyle I created a website, that will be a book as well, with portraits of beautiful people around the globe living a free, grounded and connected lifestyle, each in their very own unique way. Free souls on a roll! Please check www.livingabarefootlifestyle.com


My DNA and the DNA of this space called The Barefoot Diaries is about movement: move energy and move life. To move what’s stagnated. Freeing more of our life force so that creativity can fully bloom. All that I bring forth through The Barefoot Diaries: from books, art, projects, workshops or creative mentoring will hopefully spark more of our true colors. Like bright sparkly fireworks: swift and sometimes with a loud bang, but always mesmerizingly beautiful after that.

Because… you can’t start a fire without a spark! To quote from Dancing in the dark by Bruce Springsteen that my parents often listened to when I was a little girl. To ignite the fire in yourself, you do need that tiny spark.

You can’t start a fire without a spark

To live the full rainbow of our potential

The Barefoot Diaries is a safe container for your self-discovery on the road to the full rainbow of your potential. No journey of no person is ever the same, nor needs the same things. And only you yourself have the knowledge and wisdom inside about what you need. This space is about embracing our uniqueness fully. Following what we individually need to bloom and be inspired by others that found their way to do so. Let our hearts and love lead the way, and not our (unconscious) fears.

Below more about the 3 parts of this brand that are in progress

1. A mentoring program

A collective where I provide space for you to dive deep into new layers of your creative (life) force. Space where true colors get sparked. My goal is to provide the space for a likeminded creative community with other wise wildflowers.

There will be sub-mentoring programs available like: Free Your Inner Writer, how to write your book (that I already run in Dutch).

2. Products

Products that ignite The Barefoot Lifestyle. From books, a journal to art.

3. A physical place

Ultimately I want to extend this online space and create an actual Barefoot Diaries place that you can rent or come to when you crave some creative time for yourself.

In My Barefoot Diary blog I keep you updated on launches, I share little pieces of art to spark true colors and give you a peek behind the scenes of this multisensory brand. To be a part of the tribe and not miss a thing: please join the newsletter.



The wildflower that you are…

So simple and enormous courageous at the same time

It’s all about the unique wildflower that we all are, with our own specific shadows, qualities and gifts. And that ‘all’ you have to do is give space to your uniqueness, welcome anything that arises in every moment fully so that you can grow from the seed more and more into your full blooming, your full potential. It’s so simple and an enormous courageous journey at the same time. It’s the natural vulnerable state of us a human beings that we drifted away from.
Not easy, but so real and therefore full of magic.

Wildflower, thanks for being here!
