A day in Amsterdam


Last week, I went to Amsterdam with my mother. In this blogpost I will show & tell you a little bit what we’ve done, what we ate and a little shoplog at the end!

I love Amsterdam. It’s our capital city (NL) and it’s always fun to go there. The shops are great, the views are great, the are cute, the food is delicious and the people are really nice (often). I’ve been a lot in Amsterdam in my life. It’s 2.5 hours by train from my house and I love to be in a big city. I went to Amsterdam with my mother because she wanted to go to a specific store in the city and she asked who wanted to come with her. Of course, going shopping in Amsterdam is not a problem for me 🙂

I made a couple of pictures this day and I want to share these with you!


This is just a really random picture of my waiting for my mom while she is fitting clothes. Nothing special, haha.

Now on to the food we ate!


Bagels and Beans – It was lunchtime when we arrived in Amsterdam so we went to Bagels & Beans for a bagel and a smoothie. I had a bagel with lettuce, smoked chicken, avocado, cucumber, pine nuts and pesto. I also had a strawberry-banana smoothie. It was delicious!


Starbucks – When we are in Amsterdam, or an other big city, we always go to Starbucks. My favorite things to order are a Frappuccino Caramel and a Cinnamon Swirl!


Sumo – For dinner, we went to a sushi restaurant. We LOVE sushi. ♥♥

Last but not least, the shoplog!

We went shopping on the ‘Albert Cuijp‘ market, definitely recommend visiting this market. I only bought this cute shirt by the brand ‘Daphnea‘. It’s a dark grey shirt covered with rose golden pineapples!


After visiting the Albert Cuijp market, we went to the two most famous shopping streets; ‘Kalverstraat’ en ‘Nieuwendijk’. We went to the new NYX store and I bought the Pore Filler primer and a matte brown eyeshadow, which I will be using for my eyebrows! We also went to the new Primark, where I bought this brush by the PS… Pro collection. A review about this brush will be on my blog soon!

My mom and I had an amazing day in Amsterdam and we can’t wait to go back soon! Have you ever been to Amsterdam and what is your favorite place in the city?

Love, Anne ♥

    1. Same, sushi and shopping is life. I definitely recommend going to Amsterdam. Not only because it’s our capital city, it’s just a wonderful and cute city. If you go there, let me know and I will give you some tips if you want! -xx

  2. Oooh I love sushi! And your pineapple shirt is so cute, love your style. Glad you had a lovely day out – you’ll have to recommend some stuff for me to see when I go 😉

  3. I’d love too go to Amsterdam it looks amazing! I also really want too try out the NYX pore filler, is it any good? I also saw the oval brushes in Primark but I was really sceptical, are they good?
