The story behind

Project Comfortable

About me

Born in and raised in a small town near Amsterdam, I was exposed to the “big city life” pretty early on. By the time I turned 15, I was already living in Milan. I was so inspired by the powerful top models and businesswomen that I had the honor of meeting along the way.

But the life of a model isn’t very glamorous at all. It’s mostly dealing with non-stop judgment, being too skinny, too fat, insecurities, comparing yourself to others, loneliness, and a whole lot of “no’s”. This can weigh very heavily on young girls. Luckily (and thanks to a great family) I managed to put things into perspective and pushed through the tough times.

After many years in the industry, I still enjoy modeling and hope to be working in the creative world for as long as I can because there are so many incredible sides to it. Besides the need to be an instant grown-up once you’re in it, you get to travel the world and meet amazing people. With faith in yourself, hard work, and dedication, there are endless opportunities waiting for you.

Now, it’s my time to step out of my comfort zone and follow in the footsteps of the incredible people I’ve met. My passions are beauty, skincare, fashion, and lifestyle, and these are the things that help me to feel my best.  

I hope to be able to help out everyone - in the industry and outside of it - through my platform in any way I can. That’s why I'm sharing my journey to feeling comfortable.

What does “comfortable” mean to me? Those who know me know that I always try to dress comfortably and that I live by the motto “less is more.” My style? Athleisure chic. But comfort is about more than what’s on the outside. This platform is my way of sharing my journey to being comfortable and the incredible tips and experiences I’ve collected along the way.
From interviews, to tutorials, to editorials and reviews - there’s something for everyone. I wanted to create a space that allows me to bring my vision on beauty, lifestyle, wellness and fashion together. Where my love for video and photography meet, and where I can share my network of inspiring creatives with the world. I’ve always known I wanted to do something outside of modeling, and this is just that.

Transparency and authenticity are the cornerstones of Project Comfortable. Being comfortable is not only about the way we feel, but the way we make others feel, too. Throughout my modeling career, I’ve been lucky enough to learn from the best and it’s made me who I am today. And that’s someone who is comfortable in her own skin. All of the products on this platform help me to feel that way, whether it’s a skincare product, beautiful item of clothing, a wellness tool, or something for my home. They help me to be as comfortable in life as I can be. I want to inspire you to feel the same way. All products on this platform are tried and tested by me before being recommended. I’ll keep adding to this, sharing everything that adds to my life; big or small. I hope that in the future this will be my own line of unique products that revolve around being comfortable. Because being comfortable is what matters the most to me.
