Among bloggers and creatives there is one recurring question: How to stay inspired? For me the solution is out there. It is the people who inspire me. Thus, today I want to start a new series on the blog about those creative and inspiring people. To kick off the new series I want to introduce you to Manon Valesca Maria of ‘The Life Traveller’. You will quickly realize why she is so inspiring!

Manon is not just a blogger, just a creative. Besides her thriving career for various Dutch lifestyle magazines she is also the creator of Naramatisho, a Kenyan handicraft label. But the most important role of her life is motherhood. In her words: She is the blessed mother of a wonderful rainbow family. Additionally she does charity work and – in her words – shares light. What a beautiful expression, don’t you agree?

This wonderful woman seems to live many lives but in fact the one life given to us is big enough to capture it all. It is just what we make out of it! Nowadays Manon and her rainbow family divide their time between Kenya and Amsterdam collecting experiences and positive thoughts.

To set things clear: I have never met Manon in person. Yet I feel thoroughly inspired by her work and life. The most obvious source of inspiration is her incredibly personal and beautiful home. But it is more than that. It is her personality that shines through her social media presence. It is a real human being that you see and feel. Authenticity is a catchword here, but it feels to technocratic to be used. It is warmth, honesty, and positive vibes that you feel pursuing her life and work. Her obsession with plants is helping too, I admit!

To round things up I will just tell you that Manon also accompanies likeminded people as a life coach. Because she believes in one wonderful thing that I would like to underline here too: Everyone deserves to be happy!

      Oh you should Mel. She is not only inspiring from the interior design point of view but also as a person. Even though I don’t know Manon personally, I sort of feel her good vibes even through social media!

    “but in fact the one life given to us is big enough to capture it all. It is just what we make out of it!” Straight to the heart! Klingt nach einer ganz wunderbaren Serie und ich bin gespannt, was es dazu in Zukunft zu lesen gibt. Ein wundervoller Text, ich klick mich jetzt in Ruhe durch Insta.
