Celebrate life

the 5th of July is the day I was born. I never really cared much about my birthday, the thought was always: "I'm getting a year older, so what"? But this past year has been very confronting. I lost 2 close friends of mine in a year time.

They were both my age and they both left behind 3 children. Their kids are growing up without a mother. And although I've lost precious people (family) before, the difference now is that these friends were my age. We talked about motherhood, career plans and things we where...

Fashion and doing business at Amal-Design


It's not always easy to combine creativity with the business part. I know I'm creative and I like that part about myself. The part that I don't like is the financial administration.

Some years ago I got separated from the father of my kids and it made me realize that I didn't live the life I wanted. Like I mentioned before, my kids are my number 1 priority and so was my husband. I totally forgot about myself. But a lot of parents live a life like this, because we're in...


"Amal-Design", how to stand out from the crowd

"Amal-Design", how to stand out from the crowd


How to stand out from the crowd is something that's almost daily on my mind. The fashion scene is very competitive, so if you’re not a big brand, it's a big challenge to distinguish yourself from the rest.

Today's advertising is different than 10 years ago. There are still magazines that do well in reaching their readers. But the 'new' effective way of fashion marketing is by blogging and vlogging. It has a more effective reach. The most followers of bloggers are following more to 'look a like' than to be up to date in fashion. This...
