Happy Sunday! I’m at my moms house and just played with my niece and nephews. They’re now watching youtube movies so I’m chilling on the couch. While Sam and I were looking for tickets for our next Dubai trip a few days ago (more about this later) I thought to myself that I didn’t post my Dubai pics on here yet. Only on Instagram!?!?! Anyway.. We went here in the beginning of November, just before we visited Bali. Sams brother moved to Dubai last year so we wanted to visit him. I heard a lot of stories about Dubai but it’s even more fun than I thought! The skyscrapers, restaurants, malls, beaches.. so cool and pretty. It reminded me of the States somehow. Anyway, we’re planning to go back here in May and I’m already excited. How was your weekend by the way? I’m getting ready for a new week, writing down my to do list for tomorrow. A Sunday well spent brings a week of content, right?! Hehe.. Good night guys! XX
Since I graduated Vogue Academy last summer, my mornings now look a little different. With less stressful mornings, comes a new way of dressing up.
Less rushing in the mornings means that I get to spend more time in my comfortable clothes. I love wearing comfy clothes! Most of the time I can eat breakfast wearing pajamas & fluffy socks and get ready while wearing a soft silky robe.
As a kid I loved dressing up and till this day on, I still do :-) What I wear, depends on my mood. However, I do like to play with the current trends. For example: yesterday I wore a sheer top combined with a black triangle bra. Since we’re getting closer to springtime, you’ll probably see more sheer tops. What you’ll probably see more of as well, are flower patterns! My cardigan has tiny embroidered flowers. Makes a plain black cardigan a bit more interesting, right?!
Table for two please! What an amazing view, right? ♥
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.
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.
Monday afternoon and I’m still a bit tired of Saturday night’s party. I’m drinking my second big cup of coffee. How was your weekend? Hope you had a nice one :-) I spent mine in my hometown. I visited my granny, saw my friends (we actually went to an escape room and made it out on time!) and spent time with family. Now I’m back in Amsterdam and currently in a cafe with Lise, both working on our laptops. This place is pretty close to my house, but my scooter did. not. start. So we walked over here, pretty nice actually! Perfect weather. Tonight we’re going to the cinema to see La La Land. Ryan Gosling is in it so it must be a good one! XXX
Jacket – Brandy Melville

^ 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.
^ Drinking coffee and eating macarons from Laduree. The perfect afternoon snack! (Even though I wouldn’t mind having this as breakfast, lunch and diner).
^ City walks wearing black and white. Okay, a bit white.
^ 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!
Still have a lot of photos to share, so part 2 will be online soon! XXX
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
