“Unlock Your Potential” book launch in New York
Marlies Dekkers, the cult Dutch lingerie artist, launched her new book ‘Unlock your potential’ on February 27th in the Dream Hotel Downtown, New York City… And what a night it was!
More than 80 guests came out to celebrate, from business women to influencers, journalists and customers…The dynamic crowd of forward thinking NYC women, including Ruthie Davis, Mal Harrison and Frederique van der Wal, truly embraced Marlies’ latest work during the 2 hour interactive workshop.
Marlies guided her audience through every chapter of her book with sometimes very personal examples from her own story to success. From career to family, from health to sensuality, Marlies successfully challenged the crowd to look in the mirror and structure the process of self-realization in life’s most important areas. With many (some very intense) group exercises and a guest performance by musical artist Donna D’ Cruz, the book launch became a special night where women shared some of their deepest desires, erotic fantasies, life’s challenges and even wrote compliments on each other’s bodies, literally!
‘’As masters of our own destiny, the world is asking us to shape a future of opportunity for ourselves. What matters now is action. Action on our part, starting with the woman in the mirror.”
– Marlies Dekkers

Podcast by the pool
I LOVE a good podcast. When done well, it is both informative and relaxing. On top of that, the intimate quality of it can make me me feel like I am having a really good talk with a very clever friend.
