Yesterday I arrived in Thessaloniki, YAY. I’ve been waiting for so long for some sun. The weather in Sweden has been terrible the last months, it’s May and it’s still winter there. When we got out of the airport it was immediately 27 degrees, so I was happy and looking forward to spend the rest of the week here. We are visiting my friends hometown. One of my best friends is from Thessaloniki, I’ve been to some Greek islands before but never on the main land. These pictures were taken yesterday during sunset. It was such a beautiful walk! Keep an eye on my Instagram and stories for more updates from this week!
Currently sitting at Arlanda airport writing this blogpost while looking at a sunny blue sky and airplanes that are passing by.
Life is beautiful!
So I spent my weekend in Stockholm again. This is the third time that I am visiting Sweden’s capital. This weekend was all just about chilling, good food, wine and watching the Melodifestivalen haha! I have this guilty pleasure for the Eurovision songfestival and last Saturday Sweden got their national finals. Seriously I loved all the song, you can really tell that the Swedes are good at making music. Well congrats to Robin Bengtsson, but I really liked Nano – Hold On (they ended up second).
The weather was amazing, finally spring is coming to Sweden. This OOTD look is from Saturday. I am obsessed with pink, so you might caught me wearing 50 shades of pink this spring 🙂 I really like Stockholm, I need to start thinking about where I am going to live after finishing my master in Lund. Stockholm is definitely one of my options. I have seriously no real plans yet and no idea what I am going to do. But I actually like that uncertainty. Just go with the flow. Who knows where life will bring me!
If you could move now anywhere, where would you go?
ps: for the girls that are using LIKEtoKNOW.it, Did you know you can now screenshot your favourite photos and the outfit details will be ready to shop automatically? It think this is such a cool new feature. The technology nowadays is insane haha. You just need the app for that. Enjoy shopping <3
Last weekend I went to Copenhagen with my mom. She was visiting me in Sweden for the first time, so I was really excited to show her around all the nice places. We’ve been strolling around the beautiful city. Luckily no rain….. cause seriously can someone please order some sun for Scandinavia? Thank you!
We had amazing cheesecake at Bertels Salon. Check it out here. It’s in the middle of the centre and easily to find when walking from the central station toward Nyhavn. Close to all the shops. Oh and we saw this cute little doggie in front of a windows. My mom thought he was fake, but eventually he moved a bit and I could convince her it was real haha. Does anyone know what dog breed this is?
I fell in love with Samsoe & Samoe. I already knew this brand a little bit, but when I entered the big store in Copenhagen… damn. I wanted to buy everything. It’s so classy, feminine and minimalistic. I just love that style. I guess it’s a Danish brand? That’s why they have this big store in Copenhagen. I want to go back soon to buy some stuff. Right now my bank account didn’t allow me to do so 🙂
Last but not least, for some reason I always end my city trip in Copenhagen at this place. Cock’s & Cows, weird name I know, but it stands for Cocktails…. Yes I know what you were thinking before. They have several locations around the city.
Next weekend I am going to Stockholm, YAY. Just so you know… I am ordering some sun for that weekend…
Last week I was visiting Gdansk (Poland). For those who don’t know, I am half Dutch and half Polish, so it was really fun to go back to my roots. I was lucky to stay at the beautiful Puro Hotel in the middle of the Old Town of Gdansk. From here we could easily walk through the whole city and see all the beautiful historical architecture that Gdansk has to offer. Funny thing is that you can actually rent a PlayStation for free at the hotel. So while it was raining outside, I was not bored in the hotel. Also it is really cool that you can manage all the room settings with a tablet, like the lights, the TV, ordering room service, etc. This is a really modern hotel and I love their bar! The breakfast was amazing, every morning we could choose from a big variety of food. And on ‘Fat Thursday’ they had a wide selection of sweets on the buffet, yummy :)! While you are staying at the hotel you can get free coffee and tea at any time, that’s a big plus for me as a tea addict. All in all, I would recommend the hotel to everyone who is visiting Gdansk. The location is just amazing and it has every comfort you need.
Besides walking through the city we couldn’t stop ourselves from eating Pierogi twice during our 4 day stay. I just love Pierogi. When you are planning to visit Gdansk, don’t miss out on Mandu, it is the best Pierogi place in town and they are so friendly there. Sometimes it’s a bit busy and you have to wait a couple of minutes for a table, but it’s definitely worth the wait!
Hopefully I can visit this city again during spring or summer and then I would definitely want to go to Sopot as well and see the beach and the promenade.
My mommy is visiting me next week in Sweden and I can’t wait to finally show her around where I live. ps; I am considering to stay in Sweden after finishing my master at Lund University.
Right when I landed in Munich it started snowing in Austria. That means, YES I can go skiing. To be honest, the last time I’ve skiid I was 7 years old…. So let’s make a small calculation… that’s uhmmm 17 years ago!! Damn, someone is getting old here. Can’t believe I am turning 25 already next month.
But on topic, I had an amazing time in this Winter Wonderland. I was lucky to visit my friend’s place in Gaicht, a small little village in Tirol, Austria. If you like to get some rest, walk trough the nature, ski and perhaps ride a horse. Go to my friends place! Skiing went actually pretty good. Yes, I am a little bit proud at myself haha. In the meantime I enjoyed some schnitzels and currywurst, nommnommnomm 🙂 While we were driving back to Munich, we passed a ‘famous’ lake called Plansee. Everything was so beautifully white, snowy and the reflections on the ice at the lake were incredible!!

Now, I am back in Sweden focusing on my master again. I love this country so much, it feels like coming home. I even started to learn some Swedish now.
In August I’ve moved to Sweden to obtain my Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship. I was a bit nervous for this adventures, but since I’ve arrived I am having the time of my life! Sweden is such a beautiful country and all the people are so nice. I’ve made so many new friends 🙂 We discovered many nice places like: Tugg Burgers (best burger place in town), Lomma Beach, Ishiri (Lunch place) and more.
In the meantime I am trying to focus on blogging, but the program is quite intense. Luckily I finally planned my next trip, October 14th -> Stockholm!
Every year I’m coming back to this place, but yes only for one day! Julian is playing at Ushuaia already for 3 years in a row and I am lucky to join him.
After some tanning at the pool from the Hard Rock Hotel we went to the Revealed Recordings party at Ushuaia. I bought this lovely white dress in a small Japanese store in Tokyo. When you followed my Snapchat takeover of OOTDmagazine you must have seen this outfit before 🙂
I really love Ibiza and yes the Hard Rock Hotel makes it a bit more special. This hotel is amazing! They always make me feel comfortable and the food is so delicious. If you get the chance to stay at this hotel one day, please make sure you book a room with breakfast included. Their breakfast is heaven!
After coming back to this Island every year for just one day, I think it is time to finally come here for a holiday. So I hope I can come back next year and stay here for at least one week. I love taking pictures on sunny islands!
Can’t believe I went to Japan! It was always a dream to go to Japan. I’ve heard so many great stories about this country. At the beginning of June my boyfriend had to do 2 shows here 1 in Tokyo and 1 in Sapporo. We were lucky to stay some extra days. So we stayed 3 days in Tokyo and 2 days in Sapporo. Yes, that’s actually long for us. We’re used to fly back and forth in 1 day.
We’ve seen all the highlights in Tokyo. We were staying in the lovely Excel hotel in Shibuya. The last photo shows the view from our hotel room. That’s the famous Shibuya crossing. It was so funny to see all this people crossing the street all at once.
Did you see my Snapchat takeover for OOTDmagazine? On friday I was showing you around all the fashion highlights of Tokyo. I went to all the famous shopping malls and areas. What I really liked was Harajuku. In this area you can find small Japanese fashion stores. I am not so tall, so all the clothes here had the perfect fit for me.
On Saturday we flew to Sapporo. This place was located on the northern Island: Hokkaido of Japan. Unfortunately we partied a bit too hard, so we didn’t had much time to explore this city. But we’ve met so many nice people that I for sure will come back to this place very soon <3
FINALLY!! I’ve found the perfect boyfriend jeans that fits me. For those who don’t know yet… I am only 5’4″ tall. So it’s really difficult to find a good jeans that is not too long. Luckily Topshop has a petite collection and I really love it. Bought this boyfriend jeans during my citytrip in London at their biggest shop at Oxford circus.
Who’s ever been there? The shop is so big I get lost all the time, but you really can find (almost) everything of their collection here.
Last week I traveled to Miami together with Julian and Tom & Jame for Winter Music Conference. We were staying there for 1 week, so I was hoping to get some time at the beach during the parties. NOT… there was no time to spent on the beach, so my beach photos were taken like in 10 minutes. Okay, I’m not gonna lie. I’ve spent a few hours laying at the beach, but most of the time you saw me partying at pool parties and during the night. We visited the Revealed Recordings pool party with Hardwell, Afrojack his Jacked poolparty, Firebeatz and Friends, Ultra Music Festival and way more. Ultra was actually the highlight of the week. Oh how I loved Ultra!! All the people were smiling and dancing. Everyone was nice to each other. It was such a nice experience. Oh and I’ve got to see Aluna George, which made me very happy 🙂
Furthermore, you don’t need to travel to Miami for shopping. Everything is way more expensive then normally. Like they know they kan ask more money from tourists. We had some really nice dinners though, of course we ate a lot of burgers (BurgerFi was my favorite place). For the pizza you have to go to Pizza Rustica on Lincoln road. Best pizza ever!!! and so affordable. Breakfast photo taken at News Cafe on Ocean Drive.
