Denim Dress 2.0 | OOTD

20170611_155110.jpg

In my Budapest travel diary, you could already see a glimpse of my favorite outfit there. Seriously, I wore this denim dress almost every day.  It’s so comfortable and not too warm when you’re doing a city trip at a sunny destination. Personally, I never like to wear short, revealing, beachy clothes in a city, even though it’s quite hot. So for me, this outfit was perfect!

The second day I was wearing this outfit I combined it with a black t-shirt. Same shirt, different color. I couldn’t choose, so I bought both. Purchased them at Primark a year ago or so, for under €10 for sure.

The denim dress is from H&M, I bought it on sale last winter for only €20. But denim dresses are everywhere again, I saw a few that look the same at H&M, Berschka, and even Primark!

My shoes are from Nike, the Nike Tanjun in gray. My beloved backpack is from Fjallraven Känken. I bought it in Vietnam, and it’s my favorite backpack. Oh and they match my Nikes. The cat eye sunglasses are also from H&M, again bought on sale, but this time last summer.

I posted an outfit with this denim dress before. You can check it out here. But as I wore it in London in January, while it was freezing cold, I thought it would be fun to share a summer edition of it! Honestly, I like the summer version a bit more 🙂

Thank you so much for visiting, have a nice day!

SRPRS ME: Budapest | Travel Diary

20170612_173259

It’s been a while but here it is, the SRPRS.ME TRAVEL DIARY. A while ago my best friend Gaby and I decided to do a srprsme trip again. SRPRS.ME is a Dutch travel agency where you can book surprise trips. We chose for the four day broke trip. We also did one last year, read that here.

So last week it was finally time to reveal our destination. We had to be at the airport at 6.30 AM on Sunday. It was so early, but totally worth it. I already had the feeling we would go to Budapest, and I was really happy that I was right haha

It was only a one and a half hour flight, so we had a full first day in Budapest. After finding our hostel we went for a late lunch. We both a club sandwich and it was so good. After lunch we just wandered around a bit through the Pest side of the city. We saw already lots of beautiful buildings. What a beautiful city! We ended up having dinner close to the big basilica, where we also had some tasty cocktails.

It was a beautiful sunny day again and we decided to go to the famous thermal bath house.  It was a really big yellow building, with lots of warm and cold thermal baths and also some saunas. It was fun to see and a great experience, but it wasn’t really my thing. After the baths, we visited the Heroes Square and a market. We did some shopping and in the evening we went to the biggest ruin club/pub in Budapest.

Our last full day in Budapest we went to the Buda side. It has hills, with a lot of beautiful building on top of the hills, and you have an amazing view on the Parlement and over the rest of the city. We wandered around there, it was amazing.

For dinner we ate at a fancy Italian restaurant. Really nice.

That was already our last day, the next day we flew back home. I had a great time in Budapest. It is a fun city and there is a lot to explore. I am really happy that srprs.me sent us there! The flight and accommodation were also really good, we had a great hostel and it was in the middle of the city.

Thank you so much for visiting, and I wish you all a lovely day xx

Citytrip: Berlin, Germany | Travel Diary

About a week ago I visited the beautiful capital of Germany with my family.

We arrived Saturday evening in Berlin after a long car ride. After checking in at our hotel we wandered a bit around looking for a place to eat. We saw a little piece of the wall. Eventually we ended up in an Italian restaurant.

While walking back to our hotel we saw this beautiful and impressive sunset over the railway.

Sunday morning we walked besides the wall. There were a lot impressive and political graffitis on the wall. Very interesting. I uploaded some to give you guys an impression.

We walked a lot and saw Checkpoint Charlie, an old watchtower, an expediton about the history of Berlin before the wall and also the Holocaust Monument. It was very impressive. We also went downstairs were you could read about what happened and families that didn’t survive it. It’s eye opening, especially because in school I mostly learned about what happened in my country and now I also read about how horrible it was in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

We also visited the Brandenburger Tor, walked over Unter den Linden, the Reichstag and a big church. The highlights.

In the evening we ate a big schnitzel. You kind of have to….

On Monday we did a shopping day. Yesterday we walked the whole day, and we visited quit heavy and emotional monuments, we decided that today would be a metro and shoppingday.

We went to the big shopping street Kurfurstendamm. It reminded me a bit of the Champs Elysees, what my father later told me, was the intention. The street was full with expensive shop as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci etc. I just love it, eventhough I can’t afford it. Doens’t matter where I am, but I almost always find the desinger shops.

There was also this big warehouse called Kaufhaus des Westens. I may have bought something at Tiffanys and Co there…. Audrey Hepburn was there too so…..

When I had spend all my money we walked to the Siegessäule. It was possible to get inside and walk all the stairs up to, where you had an amazing view.

In the evening we had dinner at an Italian restaurant again.

On Tuesday we went to the Hackesche Höfe, a cute little place with small shops inside. After some walking around we had lunch at an Asian restaurant where they had delicious Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese food.

We also went to the Museum Island and to some churches. Being cultural.

In the afternoon we visited Alexander Platz, where we shopped a little and had curry wurst with fries as dinner.

Wedneday it was time to go back home. We quickly visited Potsdam, where we had a delicious lunch and walked around a bit. After that it was time for the very long car ride again.

Berlin was very lovely. It was very educational, interesting and impressive. There is a lot to see and to learn. It impressed me a lot.

Hope you have a lovely day!

London 2017 | Aftermovie

It took me a while, but I finally finished editing all the London footage I had from my London trip. By the way, excuse my bad filming skills and editing skills. Walking and trying to film at the same time isn’t the best combination oops.

In the end of the video there is this thing called the “missed out flight so now we have to sleep at the airport” vlog. We talk Dutch there, and I realise that most of my blog followers speak English and that you won’t understand what’s going on. I wanted to put subtitles under the video, but well my editing skills aren’t that great so….

I will give you a brief summary. When in the Burger King we’re talking about how we had to wait over one hour for the bus and how ryanair didn’t accept us on the plane anymore. That is kinda what we talk about the whole “vlog” 🙂 . The rest is just us showing how we stay there the whole night.

Thanks for watching! Don’t forget to like and subscribe to my youtube channel for more travel videos!

Have a lovely day!

LONDON OOTD: denim dress

img_4860img_4865img_4868

Another London outfit! yay. It was freezing, but do it for the blog haha. This was at Covent Garden in London. A super cute market, it was so beautiful.

Okay so, I was wearing this super cute denim dress that I found at H&M in the sale. I love it so much! It’s so comfy and different and still warm. Also love how it is a dress, what makes you feel cute and girly, but not overdressed or something. It’s perfect for a casual but girly outfit. And it has pockets!!!!

You can wear what ever shirt/sweater you want to. This time in London I combined it with my grey/black turtleneck shirt from Primark. Originally I planned to wear this with my new green sweater from H&M (what I mentioned in this post), but I liked this shirt more. Back home I already took some pictures with the green sweater, I added these in the end because I still like that combination too. Only, the green sweater is a bit more loose and a tighter shirt under need the dress looks better in my opinion.

For shoes I wore my black over the knee boots again. They are just so warm and comfy. And of course some black warm tights. Other wise my legs would freeze off.

Tell me which combination you liked the most! One or two?

Hope you liked it! Have a nice day 🙂

Citytrip: London | Travel Diary

20170118_174432

Hi guys,

A few days ago I came back from by citytrip to London. I’ve been there for 5 days, well 6 if you count the night we had to spend at the airport because we missed our flight. Never thought I would be the kind of person to miss a flight, but apparently I am lol. Despite of that, the trip was a lot of fun. My best friend and I visited our other best friend that lives there. If you would love to read about my days there, keep on reading!

For the London aftermovie, click here!!! London OOTD’s click here and here!

WEDNESDAY – DAY 1

Our day started very early. The plane left at 8 a.m. and we were at Stansted Airport at 8 a.m. Benefit of the one hour difference. We took the Stansted Express to Liverpool Street Station, where Dani was waiting for us. Yay we were finally reunited again :). We dropped our luggage at here place. She had to go the the university, so Gaby and I went to see Oxford Street. How long can a shopping street be? ohmygod, but okay. Really loved the Disney store, it was so cute! We also found the Victoria Secret and all the other luxiours brands stores. A girl can dream…. We were just walking and out of the no where I saw the Ritz Hotel. I got a bit too excited, but that’s the Nothing Hill Hotel!! Honestly I don’t know how we walked, but suddenly we were at Buckingham Palace. There we meeted Dani again and she showed us the Westminster, the London eye, Trafalgar square and the Nandos. Can we please have a Nandos in the Netherlands. It was so delicious (and spicy, so spicy I was crying haha always get that with spicy chicken).

THURSDAY – DAY 2

First we visited the Borough Market, it was very cute. After that we walked all the way to the Tower Bridge, whilst following the Thames Path. Then we took the train to the St. Pauls Cathedral and afterwards we went to the station where the Harry Potter platform is. Of course you had to pay to take a picture with it. We decided to go to Camden Town. I loved it, it was so different. The market was what I loved most, there was so much food to choose from, I couldn’t make a choice. In the end I went for falafel. It was so delicous! But then this happend:

Stupid bird attacked me and my falafel 😦 they better enjoyed it.

After Camden Town we went to the National gallery, we met with Dani again and ate at T.G.I. Fridays, listened to some live music at Leicester Square and went to the M&M’s store.

FRIDAY – DAY 3

Today we went to Greenwich, to visit Dani’s University. It was so pretty there! We also went to Greenwich Park where we had this amazing view over London. Up on the hill was the Greenwich Timeline, very cool. After visiting her school we went back to the city to go to Harrods. Ohmygod, it was huge! I felt quite poor walking there. We also went to Hamleys, the big toystore. It was a lot of fun haha. And those Cinnabons we had were sooooo good. I want them again.

In the evening we walked through Chinatown and ate at Pizza Hut. Gaby and Dani went in the night to Ministry of Sound, but that was nothing for me so I stayed in the hostel and watched Gossip Girl hehe.

SATURDAY – DAY 4

While they were still sleeping, I went to the Britisch Museum on my own. I really liked it, just being on my own. After the museum I went to Oxfort Street, searching for the Boots that selled NYX. I was in makeup heaven. They had so much, it was amazing! My hand ended up with lipstick everywhere and my eyebrows ended up being on fleek. (This is so 2016, but how else can I describe eyebrows that looked amazing?) Also found myself in the womens march out of nowhere, what was very crowded. So went for a walk in Hyde Park and James Park. Later on I met Dani and Gaby at Covent Garden, where we looked around. In the evening we went to Leicester Square again where we watched some busking. It was a lot of fun, all these people are so talented! Oh and had dinner at Nandos again #loveeeeeee

SUNDAY – DAY 5

Our last day in London! We would fly back home in the evening, so we still had a whole day. We did some more sightseeing: Shakespears Globe, the Tate Modern and the Royal Albert Hall. The late afternoon we’ve spend at Picadilly Circus and Leicester Square again. I loved the Cinnabons and perfomences too much. It was so much fun to watch!

At 4 o’clock we left London to go back to the station to catch the train. We were on time, even early. But no, the trains didn’t work and we had to wait over one hour to get in the bus. So we were very late. I already gave up, but Gaby still had hope we would be on time. I never ran so hard in my life, seriously that was enough exercise for my whole life. When we were running to our gate, it was the final call for our plane. There was hope. But when we got there, they didn’t let us in. While the plane was still standing there, there were even still people walking on the stairs! But no, we had to spend the entire night at the airport, and also so much money for a new ticket. Thanks Ryanair, hope you are happy now. We weren’t the only ones though. The ticket line for Ryanair was huge, so many people missed their flight.

So instead of being home sunday evening, we had to spend the entire night at the airport. But I’m home now! Tired and poor and a lot of new memories richer.

I had a great time, I would love to go again! Also did some little makeup shopping there, but will post that another time. 🙂

Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!

Citytrip: Paris | Travel Tip

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

img-20151228-wa0170

Paris, the city of love! With who else would I visit this city than my lovely boyfriend. It was our first trip abroad together. It’s almost a year ago now. We went in December, a few days before Christmas.

There were Christmas lights and trees and Christmas markets. It was so fun! While writing this I totally get in the Christmas mood already haha, maybe a bit to early? Christmas was a great time to go to Paris, but I think fall and summer is also amazing there, it’s always a great time to go to Paris! I just want to tell one thing, we went to Paris one month after the attacks in November. Nothing to be scared off, I felt safe and it did not really affect the ambiance (maybe a little because you saw soldiers standing and walking with guns everywhere). But when you maybe see a group of soldiers on one of the pictures, that’s the reason.

Let’s talk about the highlights of Paris! There are a lot! It’s a big city and most highlight are far away from each other, so we spended a lot of time in the metro (but my french got pretty good because of that)

  • La Tour Eiffel – Probably one of the most famous things about Paris. It’s beautiful in the dark! We also went to the top, you can see so far!
  • Sacre-Coeur –  The church in the part Montmarte with all the steps. You have an amazing view from there.
  • Notre-Dame – Also a very famous church. Behind the church there is the lock bridge.
  • Louvre – The museum where the Mona Lisa is! It can be really crowded. But there is way more to see than only the Mona Lisa.
  • Arc de Triomphe – Also a famous building! It’s in the middle of a very crowded and big roundabout. I really entertained my self watching the traffic.
  • Champs-Élysées – The big and long shopping street! We’ve spended so much time here haha

There is a lot more to see, but these are the most famous/important highligts. Time for the photos!

Citytrip: Rome | Travel Tip

img_3305

Last year, I’ve visited Rome, Italy. It was my first time and it was amazing! I can’t really describe it with words, pictures say way more.

But I will give some information. I was there in October, after summer. And it’s a great time to go, because in summer it will be so hot and also very crowded with tourists. In October there were still a lot of tourists, they will probably always be there. But the temperature was nice, around 20 degrees (Celicius).

Also, Rome is a big city. But we walked everything. It was so much walking, we walked an hour to the Vatican or something. There are metro’s, I believe, but my dad didn’t want to go because they say there are a lot of pickpockets there and it is also very crowded. So then it’s a lot of walking, and that was okay but after three days walking all the time my legs hurt ohmy.

Well that was the only negative thing, I guess. Rome is beautiful, especially when you love culture and the Roman time. There is so much to see! Too much maybe.

Some of the highlights are (that I’ve visited) (ohgod it’s so much I don’t even remember everything )

  • Colosseum (ofcourse!)
  • Forum Romanum – this used to be the center of the old Rome in the Roman time. It’s next to the Colosseum.
  • Vatican City – It’s possible to visit the St. Peter’s Basilica (for free). But the lines can be huuuuugeee. When we were there we also went into the dome, it gives a beautiful view over Vatican City and the St. Peter’s square.
  • Trevi Fountain – Well, I don’t know what it looks like when there is water in it because it was under reconstruction. (Because supporters of a Dutch soccer club ruined it, thaaanks)
  • Spanish Steps – Same goes for the Spanish Steps, also under reconstruction.
  • Pantheon – This is a basilica with a hole in the middle of the roof. Interesting.
  • Piazza Navona – This place was amazing! So fun and so beautiful!

Of course there is way more to see, a lot of churches, squares, streets and buildings. But it is way to much to numerate. Hope the pictures will show! (Excuse my not so good photograph skills)
