A few weeks ago I discussed Dutch women's World Cup fashion, but let's not forget the guys. This tasteful 'cheering suit', believe it or not, was completely sold out by pre-order. Sorry not sorry, boys!

Boys and their toys: stylish accessories for cars.

And we all eat orange pastry. By the bucket.

It's matchday and since it's a well known fact that Team Holland has 16.8 million coaches you understand I have important meetings coming up. Must discuss tonight's line up with family and friends, tough decisions to make! 

The Furry Assistant, ready to beg for orange cookies.
Hup, Holland, hup!

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. 
Team Holland lost the semi finals by penalty shoot outs. 


  1. Well, at residential school we watched quite a bit of the game, but no orange cookies I am sorry to say! Probably just as well, or nothing recently made would fit!

    1. Orange cookies sale today, we are all feeling blue now!
