Following my touchdown in London two days ago, after taking the biggest bite out of the big apple, I took a moment to sit back and really think. Not to just think about how amazing New York was, but also to reflect on the lessons I took back from one of the world’s greatest cities. I know that I always do my usual travel guide when visiting another country, don’t worry, that will follow very soon. But for a change, I am starting with something slightly different.
Welcome back to part two of my Amsterdam travel guide, if you have not already seen part one, click here. Part one was about the best places to eat: brunch, lunch and dinner; we’re talking the best food in the city! I shared with you some of my favourite places that should 100% be on your food bucket list. However, today is all about what Amsterdam has to offer (which is a hell of a lot!).
Hallo my loves, today I am super excited to share with you part 1 of my Amsterdam travel diary. Over the weekend I took a quick 48 hour break to Amsterdam, a city which had been on my bucket list for way too long. In this two part series, I will be sharing all the best things to do in this beautiful city. The secret insider tips, the best places for brunch, lunch and dinner and where all the locals hang out.
Miraculously, the weather in London has somehow got colder again…I cannot remember the last time I started a blog post by not discussing the weather! I always find myself wearing darker colours in the colder months: blacks, greys and navies. It so hard to no reach for the blacks and greys in our wardrobe, but even harder to find a coloured item to throw on and style. One of my new year’s resolutions was to add more colour into my wardrobe; not that I wear black all the time, I don’t. To be honest, I actually wear a generous amount of colour. However, I know that for a lot of people, including myself from time to time, it can be easy to choose the easy option of a black knit and a pair of black skinny jeans. But, just because it’s darker in the evenings and colder outside, it doesn’t mean that we have to limit ourselves to two colours!
London probably has some of the best buildings with the best views! Not to mention, eating at the top with 360 degree views. I feel like many people are unaware of the vast numbers of buildings in London that have incredible views of the entire city. Even better, cocktails or brunch with a view is my absolute favourite. On Monday, I visited the Tate Modern which has recently had a huge extension. They’ve added this super cool building where you can go up to the top (for free) and get the most amazing views of the city. The Tate is just one of the many places in London that offer some of the best views around for not even a penny.
