Hi friends, welcome back to my blog!! I have a break from school this week so I went to Essen (Germany) with my sister for a shopping trip last Monday! There is a mini shoplog on the end of this blogpost!
So before I want to start with this blogpost, I want to say that I thought that I had made a lot of pictures. Unfortunately, I made almost all of them on Snapchat so I couldn’t find them anymore today! I had only a couple left so this will not be an extremely long blogpost! :’)
So I’ll start with a little map so a lot of you can see where Essen is. Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions from people where The Netherlands is or where different places which I visited are. So here is a little map:
Now you know where Essen is, I can tell you more about my day.
So my sister and I arrived at 12 pm in Essen after an 1,5 hour drive on the German Autobahn (=really fast highway). It was the first time for me driving on the German Autobahn alone so it was a bit exciting for me. Essen is kind of a big city so it was also a challenge to find the parking garage. But we found it and the fun began.
We bought some breads at a bakery, ate it and went straight to Starbucks. Girl, I needed my coffee after such a long exhausting drive. (that was sarcastic, if you didn’t got it but I did actually needed coffee)
Look at all those delicious treats! We were strong that day so we only bought a coffee. I got a Caramel Frappuccino (as usual) and my sister got a latte macchiato with vanilla! After drinking our coffee, the shopping could finally begin!
We went to a big shopping mall called ‘Limbecker Platz‘ where you find the most amazing shops. Unfortunately, it was that time of the year I couldn’t find anything nice (booh) so we ended up being in a massage chair for 20 minutes!
When we finally got the strenght to stand up, we did another walk through the mall, and we finally found our favorite drugstore: DM. I was strong again and I didn’t buy anything, eventhough it was a make-up heaven!
When we came out, we found this little manicure stand. So we decided to get a manicure done and some nail polish on our finger nails. BIG MISTAKE. The girls who did this were so rough and unhygienic, oh and the nailpolish was really ugly and allover my fingers, so I didn’t make a picture haha!
We decided to get something to drink and then go to Primark. This was fun because I finally found some cute clothes, of course they didn’t fit well so I didn’t buy it, but Primark was fun! I actually did buy a beautiful scarf which you will see in a minute!!
At the end of the day, we went to Extrablatt to get some dinner and that was delicious. We had some garlic bread as a starter. As a main course we shared mozzarella sticks, french fries and little pieces of pizza! Delicious. Unfortunately, I only made some pictures on snapchat. After that we went home.
My sister and I had a lovely day in Essen and we will be doing a shopping trip like this soon again!
So this is actually all I bought, except for the food! I bought this beautiful Bulaggi bag at TK Maxx. I was looking for a new bag for ages and when I saw this bag, it was love at the first sight! It is a grey bag with some little silver details. I also bought a scarf at Primark. It is a light grey scarf with some silver feathers on it. I’m also totally in love with that one!
I really hope you liked this post. It was a little bit of a different post than I usually do. I have the feeling that I normally write less and add more pictures. Tell me what you think about this post!
Lots of love, Anne ♥
