Joey’s Circle of Five!

Do you know that feeling when you want to change the world? When you want to inspire people? But you can’t even inspire yourself sometimes? That’s how I felt a while ago. I was lost. I didn’t know what to do. How to begin. How to get the energy again. Let me tell you about the months […]

Organice my home!

Last year we had a big renovation in our rental house. Finally we got double (or insulated) glazing, central heating, a new ventilation system, new kitchen, bathroom and toilet, and new balconies. Everything was really old and dirty, so we were happy for this big change in our house. Not to mention the mount we […]

The Fashion World Of Jean Paul Gaultier

French enfant terrible of pop couture Jean Paul Gaultier is one of my fashion heros. In 1990, when he designed the clothes of Madonna’s Blond Ambition Tour (my other hero, as you know), I saw his sketches of the stage clothes in magazines at bookstores and they were art pieces of their own. His drawings […]

SKIN CARE FOR MEN

As the days are getting colder (well, here in the Netherlands) I have to be extra careful with my skin. Not every man likes to put some effort in his “beauty” skin care for men regime (most men only wash their faces with water and that’s it), but I’m a fanatic skin care user for […]

Fruit Juice by Joey

Choose your JUICE!

One day in October 2011, I quit drinking alcohol. I quit after the worst hangover E-VER. The day before this hangover, I had a great party, and drank some beer. I didn’t drink too much, but my hangover on Sunday was terrible. My headache was so painful, and I couldn’t get out of bed. I […]

The love for horses

The relationship between a horse and a human is an old one. It goes way back. Before 3500 BC humans knew how to deal with the wild horses.

Regret is a waste of time

When I was a seven old year boy I remember I was watching our black & white TV, and suddenly I saw the video of Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach” on MTV. I just sat there and watched it with my mouth open. What a gorgeous woman! Such pale white skin, hot lips, and perfect body! […]
