One of the things I love about living in the coolest street in Rotterdam, Witte de Withstraat, is that I never have to leave my street. I can get my morning coffee @ Hopper, breakfast @ de Bakkerswinkel, clothes @ Margreet Olsthoorn, sneakers @ Seventyfive, and drinks @ NRC. And I get my lunch @ The Bagel Bakery!!
This make-up brush has everything I wish for in a brush. It’s compact, you can take it in your bag everywhere you go, and it’s the softest brush I ever felt. This synthetic-fiber brush is a high density brush, which result in an impeccable, perfectly smooth and even makeup finish.
I discovered this coffee spot when I was still studying and cycled to uni every day, well almost every day. It is a quiet little café; you can easily take your laptop, and study or work all day. Or curl up in one of the comfy chairs with a magazine or iPad, which you can borrow for free.
Finally summer is here!! When the weather is this hot I don’t really feel like cooking, but just have cold drinks on a terrace outside and have some fresh fish from the bbq around 8/9pm. You can get the best fresh fish from the bbq at A La Plancha! You can find this summer pop up restaurant on ‘Het Noordereiland’, a little island in the Maas in Rotterdam.
I was super happy when I got invited to the Ready to Fish by Ilja Visser show during Amsterdam Fashion Week! In the beginning of my modeling career I walked a couple of shows during some fashion weeks. But since then I haven’t been to that many shows.
Hidden in a part of the centre of Rotterdam where you don’t walk by easily, the Nieuwemarkt square, you’ll find the Urban Espresso Bar. A little breakfast, lunch and coffee place. It is a really small place, but they have the most amazing coffee. In summer they have a terrace on the little square and you can enjoy your coffee in the sun.
Only for the fragrance description, sun kissed salty skin, you should buy this Maison Martin Margiela fragrance already! But besides this beautiful description the scent is so good. Normally I love summery, citrus or flowery fragrances. But this fragrance is of a whole other level.
