A Mother’s Day surprise

Swarovski Mother's Day 2017

A s Mother’s Day is around the corner, Swarovski has given me the opportunity to surprise someone who is very close to me; my mother in law. I wanted to express my love and gratitude to her, because she’s such an inspiring woman who overcame so much in life and she deserves to shine. So I decided to lure her to Amsterdam last Wednesday and took her on a lunch date at one of my favorite spots. She didn’t know I was awaiting her in the cafe with my friend and photographer Rachel (@urbantraveller) and we were about to make some pictures of us together, since we didn’t have any good ones yet. Besides that, I went to the Swarovski store (Kalverstraat 113, Amsterdam) that morning and picked her some gorgeous items of the Swarovski Mother’s Day collection. As her oldest son is marrying this June (the brother of my boyfriend), I knew I’d definitely leave a twinkle in her eyes with these pieces. Want to see the look on her face when I gave her the gorgeous jewelry, then watch the video below!

My name is Frederique and I run this personal style blog. After graduating from law school in April 2014 – University of Utrecht (The Netherlands), exchange: Uppsala (Sweden) and UC Berkeley (USA) – I built FAB le Frique from scratch and decided to spread my lifelong interest in fashion and lifestyle with the world (wide web). Taking a leap of faith, making a career transition, leaving a known and charted career path is scary. But if the only actual obstacle blocking me from doing what I’m truly passionate about is ‘fear’, I hereby conquer my fears and go forward with my passion.
