Grab your bag and go to Lavinia in Amsterdam. This is the perfect spot for a bon vivant with a healthy way of living. Because this is the place to be for a delicious and sound breakfast, brunch, lunch or coffee. I often meet here to catch up with friends while enjoying an extensive brunch or a coffee with something sweet. But I would also love bringing my boyfriend here one day because I...

And you may even want to add a floral print jacket, some fringes, denim or a pair of big round sunglasses. It is all about mix and match in terms of typical features...

Sometimes I just feel like wearing something that will make me stand out. Like an oversized blue coat, an obvious striped dress, sparkling sneakers and - of course - a bag that will turn heads (please scroll down to get the look). As you might already know, I have a very big weakness for things that are created by hand, sustainable, exclusive and made of natural materials. And if that item...

I have to confess that I love nothing more than grabbing my bag and visit the coolest hotspots in town. As I already have shared some of my favourite places with you I felt that it was a good time to give you this list of  where you must go, sleep, eat, drink and shop. But first, when you should visit Amsterdam? When visit Amsterdam? Dutch weather is crazily unpredictable and seasons...

Grab your bag and go to Restaurant Sinne in Amsterdam. As I told you in Otra-Parte bag, I just love celebrating my birthday! And that obviously includes making dinner reservations at my favourite restaurant, or a new restaurant in this case. So in May (haha, yes May) I reserved a table for two on 30 July at Sinne, a restaurant located on the Centuurbaan in De Pijp, including a special...

Or the 90s...

And besides her successful blog she will soon start her own Bed & Breakfast at the Weteringschans. Yes, she knows what people want and that...

Today I show you some of my favorite pieces of apparel as well as the benefits of fast fashion. Zara is the world's leader of fast changing fashions but there are more such as Mango, H&M, Primark and Abercrombie & Fitch. They offer a few basic models and reorders are not very common. Designers design new items on a daily basis and are able to deliver stylish products within three weeks...
