The Mom talks with… Noor de Groot of Queen of Jetlags
Today it’s time to talk with one of our favorite influencers out there: Noor de Groot better known as Queen of Jetlags. Noor welcomed her daughter Olivia almost 2 years ago. Together with her love Sander they travel around the world living a dream life. Recently she and fellow influencer Monica Geuze launched an amazing Pajama line called Monica & Noor. The collection is super stylist and comfy, perfect for us mommies. Today we talk with Noor about the collection, mommy life and much more.
Congrats with your Pajama collection. We love it! How did you and Monica Geuze come up with this cool plan?
Thank you! We both love comfy but cute outfits so that’s basically how we figured out we wanted to bring out the prettiest pyjama line!
The collection is definitely mommy proof. Besides sleeping, what do you like to do most in your PJ’s?
I love to chill at home, watch my favorite series on Netflix and play with Olivia!
Which Pajama is your favorite?
Um, all of them! Haha! It definitely depends on the day. I liked the Starry Pyjama suit for colder nights because of the trousers. When it’s warmer I like to go for a shirt like the Galaxy pyjama but when I plan to watch some Netflix in bed I definitely go for the knitted suit!
You are a busy lady. How do you combine your career with your mommy life?
I am very busy indeed, but I make sure I have enough time to spend with my family. When a collaboration requires me to travel for a long time I always try to bring my family with me! When traveling in Europe, I sometimes choose to travel back for a day to spend some time with my family!
Every now and then we see your daughter Olivia on your Instagram. What is your opinion about sharing pics of your little one on social media?
I love to share moments with Olivia on social media! I choose to share whatever feels good. I do appreciate some privacy and when I feel like I need some, I turn off my camera. But I don’t do very often, since Olivia is a very happy and easy going kid. I think everyone should decide for themselves whether they want to share pics of their kids or not.
How would your friends describe you in 10 words?
Creative, fun, passionate, confident, loyal, honest, funny, outspoken, ambitious and kind.
How did you experience your pregnancy?
Quite easy! The first few months I did not experience anything weird at all, except the crazy cravings I had. The delivery was quite scary, but in the end it happend all so fast and it was the most special moment.
What was your craving?
Cheese! I’m a typical Dutchy, haha!
Can you describe the interior of the room of Olivia in terms of style and theme? Are there any specific brands you used to decorate?
We used a lot of white, off white and of course pink. I love the flamingo wallpaper we used so much! Next to that we kept it quite simpel because all her toys and stuffed animals are so colorful.
Your favorite restaurant and what to order there?
I love the Duchess and George Café!
You are a travel guru. Tell us! What is the best destination for a family vacation?
I loved spending last summer in LA with my family. It is such an amazing city and it was great to explore it with the people I love most!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Candy! Especially sour candy.
Which fashion mom you look at for inspiration?

What keeps you relaxed in stressful times? Describe your ultimate Me-time moment.
I love to stay at home to pamper myself with some of my favorite beauty products and take warm long baths.

Drink lots of water and eat your veggies!
Which mom would you like to introduce for the next Prêt à pregnant talks with and why?

Always listen to your gut! It’s not a bad thing to ask for advice, but don’t doubt your own feelings.
