The Expat Wife App Selection

(Desperate) expat wives spend their time shopping, having lunch with girlfriends, playing tennis, driving kids around and organising the home. Oh, and they drink wine. And the occasional cocktail. As expat wives also can get lonely, it is important to get out of the house to do all these things instead of doing them at home; electronic device […]

Lëtz Create – Nathalie Siebenaler

Miranda van den Heuvel talks to creative people in Luxembourg and says “look, Luxembourg is creative! Here’s how and where!” The June talk is with designer Nathalie Siebenaler. 1. What is CREATIVITY?

Non-existent a handful of years ago, the entirely new occupation of “Fashion Blogger” is now the dream job of young women from New York to Shanghai to Lagos and back. For bright young Millennials, the model/actress gig seems so 20th century – let’s not even talk about the “trophy wife” role.  However, that hasn’t made […]

The way you wear your hat

CLEW is at a bit of a loss here. Not that you can’t find nice clothes in Lux, but where are the special boutiques, and the feelgood factor…? Machines like H&M don’t provide that feeling, neither does the staff in certain places (quite the contrary, CLEW dares say).
