The Mom Talks with... Angela van den Brink
On this lovely Sunday it’s time for a Q&A with mom of three Angela. This power lady decided to sell her webshop debabyboetiek.com to focus on her kids and to start her own vlog. You can have a peak into her life every Thursday on her YouTube channel. She also works as PR & Communication manager at the company of her soon to be husband Tijmen. Together with Tijmen and their three kids -Dj (8), Liz (4) Zoe(3)- Angela lives in Monickendam.
How would you describe your own personal style?
I think I don’t have one style. It depends on the mood I wake up with.. 😛 I’d like to mix & match basic items with really outspoken shoes, jackets or prints.
Wat was your favorite maternity brand?
Of course H&M or asos.com and sometimes Zara. I mostly wore my own jeans during the pregnancy, I simply put a hair tie between the button of my jeans. 😉
How would your friends describe you in 10 words?
Oh oh.. haha! I asked one of my best friends and she said: funny – super mommy – loyal – ambitious – crazy – busy bee – supportive – social – spontaneous – sweet –
How did you experience your pregnancies?
I have been pregnant three times, and it was very easy! Just like giving birth. I think my body is made for pregnancies and giving birth.. The first time I gave birth in 3 hours, the second time it only took 2 hours & the third time as well, all three in my own house 🙂 but three kids is enough.. hihi.
What was your pregnancy craving?
Definitely cracottes with cheese spread!
Did you change your beauty regime since you became a mom?
I don’t think my beauty regime has really changed. Except the makeup brands I use.

Not really a book. I was more of the online sites for mommies, of course Prêt à Pregnant 😉 and magazines like Kek Mama, Fabulous Mama etc
