Although summer is my favourite season and I always feel a little sad when it is over, fall has so many nice things to offer too! Here is my list of things that get me excited about the changing seasons. My birthday is on the 25th of September! And very often I am on holiday at that time ūüôā Nice cosy sweaters to keep me warm. The colors! There is nothing more beautiful than watching the leaves change from green to yellow, to orange or deep red. And when they fall off the trees while the wind carries them away‚Ķ Listening to my favourite song with a hot chocolate in my hand while it is raining outside. Making my morning coffee while still in my pyjamas and drinking it under my favourite blanket. Buying clothes. You need something for the new season right? Nice smelling candles and baths that last hours. Darker evenings mean there‚Äôs more time to cosy up! Cancel all my appointments; turn up the heat while watching a good movie or reading …


While my personal philosophy is that you should aim to make everyday wonderful, with my increasingly busy schedule revolving around work and personal development, ¬†it’s not too difficult to get caught up in the routine. It is harder than ever before to find time for the things I enjoy, be it a nice walk, girl talk, reading a new book, morning run, or drinking coffee. Imagine that you had one day without stressing over work, thinking about school, or other responsibilities. What would your perfect day look like? Would you stay in bed for as long as you can? Maybe you would read a book? Or would you prefer to sit in the sun, sip your favourite drink and watch the people walk by? Tell me all about it.


Just at the corner of Martelaarsgracht and Prins Hendrikkade in Amsterdam, you will find the perfect spot in town for ¬†foodies and art lovers. 5&33 has a kitchen, bar, lounge, art gallery, and library just a few steps away from the Central station. I picked¬†the spot for a¬†dinner with a friend and it quickly became a favourite of mine. The vibrant venue first captured ¬†me with its design, ambiance, and elegant¬†interior. The menu is inspired by Mediterranean flavours, offering a shared-dining concept (which I applauded after the first few dishes came around. You just want to try everything there is on the menu!). ¬†5&33 is one of the places you love everything about. If I had to describe it in a few words, I would use inspiring, fresh, and chic.
