The benefit of dragging oneself out of bed before 4 am is to get a full day of shopping!!! We arrived timely for breakfast in Amsterdam. We stayed at the Hampshire Rembrandt Square, right in the middle of Amsterdam.
and my bathroom
Over those two days we walked something like 26 km in stop-and-go mode. Shopping with 7 people means doing tons of shops!!! I just love this kind of shopping experience - it is so much fun with an army of people shouting and commenting on any item you ogle and intend to buy. Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen the one or the other picture already:
I shopped some gifts for my sister and my friends. For myself I got two cardigans, a pair of shoes and two bags. My favorite item is the bag I bought with Urban Outfitters:
And we went to our favorite restaurant: Cau - that is if you love meat…
Those two days passed within the blink of an eye - we had a gorgeous time and certainly will roam Amsterdam again
Would you believe, I did not look at a single bottle of nail polish in those two days - but of course I want to show you what I had on my nails:
Isn't O'Hara just GORGEOUS!!!! I loved looking at its sparkle and shine and after two days my mani didn't look any more tired than my feet felt.
Only downside: I managed to kill my Kindle when returning home. The Boarding Crew would not let me carry my hand luggage AND my handbag - I had to squeeze my bag into the suitcase. Well, to make the long story short, I could not close the suitcase unless kneeling on it, and my Kindle didn't survive the torture:
Rescue came quickly - a friend of mine had a Kindle unused at home :-D!!!!!
Back home, I will also be back to my routine - stay tuned for another themed week!!! Thanks for passing by - Christine
