This picture is taken at restaurant The Lobby, located in the Peninsula hotel. Sam and I had lunch here one day. By the way.. Yes that is cheesecake, yes our lunch included dessert. Hmm!

We visited Louvre on our last day. Of course I had to take a picture here! Outfit details: I was wearing an All Saints jacket, Zara skirt, River Island top, Loavies shoes and bag.Paris4
Inside of Louvre. An impressive big painting on the left. On the right you see Mona Lisa, which isn’t as big as I thought?! You can’t even see it very well because of all the tourists (which I was one of🙈).

We stayed at Renaissance Le Parc Trocadero hotel. We  l o v e d  it here. Perfect room and perfect location.

Breakfast in our cozy room, yes please! We overlooked the garden, which was very calm in the middle of a big city.

The entrance of our hotel. We walked almost everywhere because we of it’s good location. If you’re going to Paris soon, I can recommend this hotel for sure. Check out their website here.

Sam and I went on a boat tour on the Seine late in the afternoon. This was a very spontaneous idea and we didn’t really prepare for it. If I knew we went on a boat tour, I would have worn 4 layers at least hehe. We sat upstairs, on the deck, but it was quite cold. So after a little while I covered myself in a blanket. And 10 minutes later in another one. And a little while later in another one. Haha. But it was nice to discover Paris from the water and see all of Paris’ attractions! A real must-do if you ask me.

One morning we walked to Tracedero before we had breakfast. It’s like a 5 minute walk from our hotel so went here a few times actually! Trocadero is a platform where you have the most beautiful Eiffel Tower view. Normally it’s pretty crowded, but at 8 AM it’s a whole other story.

Paris at night is so beautiful as well! During this photo we walked to the subway, because we wanted to do some shopping. Champs Élysées is only one subway station away from the hotel.

Paris10Until next time, Paris! You were GREAT xx

^ Have you really been in Paris if you haven’t taken any pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower? Hehe.. Visiting Trocadero (the platform where I’m standing on in these pictures) is the first thing we did after we checked in our hotel. It was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel so of course we had to! :-)

^ Paris is filled with pretty buildings. While we were there it rained quite a bit, but it didn’t keep us from exploring the city. mm
^ Drinking coffee and eating macarons from Laduree. The perfect afternoon snack! (Even though I wouldn’t mind having this as breakfast, lunch and diner).
Paris11
^ City walks wearing black and white. Okay, a bit white.
Paris12
^ While wandering around the city we came across this view. Looks like a scene from a movie!

^ On the second day we had lunch somewhere near Arc de Triomphe. I feel like I want to write ‘Paris is so beautiful’ under every picture, but really, Paris is! Paris17

Still have a lot of photos to share, so part 2 will be online soon! XXX

BALI TRAVEL VIDEO

It’s Sundaaay! And time for a video! While Sam and I were in Bali in November, we filmed a travel video. I actually didn’t think we had enough content for a whole youtube movie, but we ended up having more content than we thought :-) Here’s our 1 minute Instagram video, I think I will make a longer video later this week! First I wanted to show this. During this trip it was the first time we used our drone and thankfully everything went okay. Haha, it’s quite hard! I was afraid the drone would crash in the sea, but Sam was very calmly flying it. Hope you like the video! XX

NEXT STOP: PARIS

Good evening from Paris! Sam and I are currently in the city of looove! We left the house at 7.50 AM this morning and we arrived in Paris at 11.30 PM. The Thalys only takes 3 hours from Amsterdam central station. I can make this a weekly thing. Hihi. We are here for a little getaway, will only stay here for a few nights. I’m really looking forward to wandering around, views of the Eiffel Tower, macarons from Laduree and long Parisian lunches. The weather forecast isn’t looking promising at all, but I will hope for the best :-) Talk to you soon! XX

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I’m a bit late but still wanted to wish you a happy & healthy 2017. How did you spend your New Years Eve? I had a party at one of my friends’ home and it was nice. A party that was not too big, not too small. A good start of a new year! I’m not really a type who is all about the ‘New Year, New Me’ thing, but I do like to think about some new resolutions. So here are mine:

✶ Be more tidy. I’m super messy and it drives me crazy sometimes. Tidy house, tidy mind. Isn’t that a saying?

✶ Try out more recipes. I have a couple of recipes I can make and that I really like, but overall I enjoy looking up recipes more than actually making them. It should be the other way around?!

✶ Write more blog posts! More lifestyle oriented maybe as well? Beauty, travel, interior etc. I want to share more than only my outfits.

✶ Travel. See more of the world! It would be so fun to explore foreign countries together with Sam.

✶ Find a fun work out. I think the gym can sometimes be a bit boring, so I have to find something I actually enjoy doing. Tips are welcome!

If you have any new year’s resolutions yourself, feel free to share them!  X

It’s Sunday evening now and we have one more day left here. I’m not sure if I already told you that Sam actually lived in Bali for 3 months to study here? I think this was about 5 years ago. During this time I visited him for a week. We stayed in Kuta, which is where we were a couple of days ago as well. When we went out for dinner, we saw a couple of restaurants we visited back then. ‘Aww look we had dinner there!’ ‘Oh do you remember that’s the beach we visited?!’ Hehe so nice to see :-) Good memories! Anyway, we’re about to go to bed, then tomorrow we have a full beach day ahead and in the evening we’ll catch our flight back to Amsterdam. A 17 hour flight during the night so hopefully we’ll sleep a lot (Sam for sure will, he usually sleeps before the plane takes off). Have a lot more photos to show so I will blog again when I’m home. Big kiss!! Xxxx
