In his fungal nail practice, Peter Boeters has been seeing people walk in full of shame for years – “It’s really bad…” – and confidently go back to go outside. Business is going so well that the innovative products and treatment he developed with his team are now also available for pedicures at home and abroad.
Especially now that the warmer days are coming again and the slippers are allowed to wear again, you often notice that one fungal nail or fungal nail. “Perhaps you have tried a remedy from the drugstore, most likely without result,” says Peter. “With Tiptoe we have combined a super effective treatment plan with patented, self-developed products. After a trajectory at our practice in Capelle or De Lier, you finally really get rid of it and the complaints come back less quickly.”
Body’s own substance
The active substance in Tiptoe’s products – peptide – is not only effective, but also natural, explains Peter. “It is in everyone’s mouth and eyes and protects you against viruses and bacteria. The great thing about the fact that it is a body’s own substance is that it can be used safely by anyone from the age of three. The microbiologist who discovered that this substance kills fungi and yeasts on the nail is involved in Tiptoe. Together we have developed four effective products”.

Sanne and Ruben’s wishes? A house of at least square meters with outdoor space and two bedrooms. An open kitchen, classic details and parking options are also high on the list. That worked, and good too! Broker Alex found a beautiful apartment for the couple with ensuite doors, a fireplace and high ceilings with stylish ornaments.
This is how the chic apartment was created
Sanne and Ruben are very enthusiastic after the first viewing . They decide to free up extra budget for a renovation by Bob, which means that the layout is changed considerably and a completely new bathroom and kitchen are created. It’s up to stylist Roos to make the house a nice home.
With brand new furniture from Eijerkamp in warm natural tones and black accents, a classic, rural interior is created . In the large kitchen, she places a large boat-shaped dining table, wooden dining room chairs and a spacious dining bench. More than enough space to dine for hours with family and friends!

Don’t you fall under this group yet?

But we learned even more! Let’s talk about sex, baby…
Work hard, play hard?!

Derk likes color and statements, while Martien prefers safe black and white. It’s up to stylist Frans Uyterlinde to bring these flavors together in a brand new interior during vtwonen ‘Again in love with your home’! Good news: you can simply shop the furniture and accessories you saw on TV at Eijerkamp!
For six months now, Derk and Martien have been living with their three girls in the parental home of Derk’s parents. Familiar territory, but the house still doesn’t feel like home for the couple. Since they live there, nothing has changed in the interior. They are unable to make a whole of the different living spaces and the tiled floor is also an eyesore for both. During this episode, Frans manages to find the perfect balance between the two tastes and creates a home in the living style ‘Cosy Design‘.
Modern meets classic
Frans provides a light but attractive interior with the perfect mix of modern and classic elements. In the sitting area he creates a large seating island with a cloud-soft element sofa and a real design classic: the iconic rocking chair by Vitra. Plop down on the sofa, turn on the TV and fireplace and enjoy the great life! In the sitting area, the generous black oval dining table is the focal point for hours of dining pleasure with the whole family. The table is embraced by comfy chairs in steel blue velvet and a sturdy dining room sofa with leather seat cushion.

Angela knows better than anyone that dancing makes you happy and connects people. After a life full of ups & downs in El Salvador, she is now completely at home in The Hague. At Latin Soul Dance she gives dance fitness classes such as Zumba (there are now also free outdoor classes!) and she starts with a swinging Salsa course.
One thing has always remained the same in Angela’s life: her love for dancing. “I grew up in El Salvador during the civil war,” she says. “Dance became a way for me to stay mentally and emotionally healthy. When I danced, the stress and anxiety disappeared for a while.”
From lawyer to dance teacher
Still, Angela did not directly earn her living with dancing. “I graduated from university with a law degree and became a mother of two. I was a lawyer, but it still tickled. Everywhere I went, I took Zumba classes. When I moved to the Netherlands a few years ago, I decided to turn my passion into my profession. As a Zumba instructor I taught in various places in The Hague and in 25 I opened my own studio: Latin Soul Dance.”

Everyone is welcome to Latin Soul Dance
Her dance studio specializes in Latin fitness dance styles such as Zumba fitness, Salsafit and Reggaetonfit. “The lessons are given in an attractive room on the Waldeck Pyrmontkade. Everyone is welcome, regardless of age or dance level. Recently there is also a special class for seniors: Zumba Gold. This way you can keep moving even if you are less mobile. I like to help people improve their skills, but it’s mostly about dancing and having fun together. Dancing can be very meditative and calming while providing a lot of energy and positivity at the same time. Your physical and mental well-being get a boost!”
“It soon became apparent that the dance studio is also a place that brings people together from all over the world. There are currently 25 different nationalities dancing here! Everyone is welcomed with open arms and the mutual energy is contagious. It is a very nice and positive community. To reinforce that connecting atmosphere, we also organize special events and themed parties. Beautiful friendships always arise, very nice to see.”
Guidance and support
In addition, Angela is committed to helping others become Zumba instructors themselves. She offers guidance and support to those interested in a career in fitness and dance and is always ready to lend a helping hand. Her passion and drive have already inspired many of her students to become instructors themselves!

The free outdoor lessons are a great success!
Along with her Zumba friend and colleague Ouafa, Angela has also started a new program during the pandemic: Zumba outdoor classes. “For example, during the lockdowns, people still had that much-needed outlet. It was such a success that we will continue with the outdoor lessons at Sportcampus Zuiderpark.
Until July we can even offer these lessons for free thanks to the subsidy from CultuurSchakel, so that they be accessible to everyone.” The perfect opportunity to join this vibrant dance family! Take a quick look
on the schedule on which Saturdays you can be here.
New: take a Salsa course!
“My heart beats to the rhythm of Latin American dance”, Angela continues. “It was therefore my dream to organize dance courses in addition to the dance fitness classes, and now it’s time!” In
Salsa course starts from weekly classes on Monday evenings. “Together with my experienced dance colleague Nelson, a Latin instructor from Venezuela, I will pass on the art of Cuban Salsa dancing!”
“I can see that my love for the dance is very contagious. You will learn a lot and you will also become part of a very nice dance community.” Do you want to join? Register as soon as possible so that you can still enroll. “Don’t worry: I’ll make you completely up to date. Let yourself be carried away by the rousing music, discover the pleasure of dancing to Latin rhythms and experience happiness!”
