H&M Trend AW14

There's always some items from the H&M Trend line which really catch my eye and somehow surprise me every time. I recently picked up a couple of things from this line but I saw so many more nice things, so I had to share. The Trend line has more on-trend items which are a little more pricey but the quality is also nicer than usual H&M stuff. Take a look at my picks!

Conservatorium Hotel | Amsterdam

I haven't been the best blogger recently, mainly because I don't want to spend too much time on my laptop after spending a whole day behind a computer at work. I do want to share some Amsterdam things with you which is why I'm showing you around Amsterdam's coolest and most luxurious hotel: the Conservatorium Hotel.

London Fashion Week SS15

I haven't been following much of Fashion seasons so far, so I decided to have a little browse around . I only got as far as checking out the London collections (though I must admit I'm partial to London compared to NYC). Burberry Prorsum is usually one of my favourites, but this coming Spring/Summer season my preference goes out to some others. I've made a collection of my favourite looks of London Fashion Week, I hope you enjoy!

Sunday brunch at Scandinavian Embassy

Here's two things I miss about London: my crazy lovely Swedish friends and cinnamons buns from the Nordic Bakery. And I think I've found a little place to fill this gap a little. While walking around de Pijp on a Saturday, I discovered Scandinavian Embassy, a tiny cafĂ©/eatery which was filled with people chatting over coffee and cinnamon buns. Last weekend my family came to visit and I was determined to bring them here (we saw tons of cute breakfast places on the way there but I convinced them to walk a little further, even though everyone was getting a little hangry (hungry + angry)). It was definitely worth it.

Vogue Fashion Night Out '14 Amsterdam

Vogue Fashion Night Out is a worldwide event held in different cities, with the purpose of celebrating fashion. I had missed out on VFNO in London, but this year I got to experience it in Amsterdam. It's exactly a week ago now but it feels like yesterday.. what a night!

Banana vanilla protein milkshake

This is a recipe for everyone who A) wants to try a delicious post-workout shake, you deserve it B) loves banana milkshakes or 3) wants to treat himself/herself; this basically covers all three. As always, I tell you what I added to this recipe, but feel free to make it your own. This recipe is based on the banana milkshake my mom used to make for me and my siblings. Instead of adding ice-cream, she always kept it super-basic and healthy with three ingredients: banana, semi-skimmed milk and cinnamon. A super-combination, to which I added a few things for this recipe.

Bilder & De Clercq

In one of my first weeks in Amsterdam I discovered a brilliant concept/shop: Bilder & De Clercq. At first, you might think it's just a normal supermarket/food store, but it's more than just that. Bilder & De Clercq is a super smart concept which I'm surprised no one has ever thought of before (or at least I haven't seen it anywhere else before)

Hotel de Hallen | Amsterdam

Today I want to share something a little bit different; I want to give you a little tour around a brand new hotel in Amsterdam. It's kind of special because the hotel was built in an old tram depot. You'd think that such an industrial and cold type of building could never be a nice hotel but Hotel De Hallen is maybe one of the most homely feeling hotels I've ever visited.
