Hello! My name is Annemique, I live in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and I make online magazine Naturelle. I write, photograph and put together each issue and I love every minute of it (except the ‘technical’ minutes…).
I appreciate and value a considered way of life, natural beauty, a warm and personally decorated home, good and healthy food to share, hidden treasures, travel, books, crafts and creativity. I also believe that we all, as individuals, are very powerful: by making conscious choices in what we do and don’t do, say and don’t say, buy and don’t buy, eat and don’t eat, we can make a difference.
A reader once wrote: ‘I seldom read glossy magazines with their relentless advertising and celebration of affluence and celebrity but Naturelle felt like the antidote. The images are lovely and there is clearly a much sounder philosophy of living and homemaking behind the articles. Congratulations. I wish you every success and hope you will be influential in helping people to live healthy, creative less consumer driven lives.’ I couldn’t have said it better.
My wish is that you will find enjoyment and inspiration in a couple of words or an image. If Naturelle gives you even just a moment of quiet, a spark of happiness or a few seconds of wow, I would be delighted.
