PERFECT CHRISTMAS PRESENT

PERFECT CHRISTMAS PRESENTPERFECT CHRISTMAS PRESENTPERFECT CHRISTMAS PRESENT

 

Hey girls! It’s been a while since I wrote a blogpost but this is a special occasion: it’s almost Christmas time! Who’s excited for the upcoming holidays? Did you already do all of your Christmas shopping? I think I might have found a perfect Christmas present for you to consider.

How do you end up with buying something that someone really wants? I usually go for the direct approach and ask if someone could give me 3 options of what he or she wants. That way they won’t end up selling their gifts on Ebay and everyone stays happy. If you’re in the other position and you might question if someone is going to buy you the perfect present: just tell them what you want and you might get it!

The past year I’ve worked with a lot of different watch brands but one that really stands out is Olivia Burton. They have this very feminine design and brand logo which is a bee. Have you seen it in 3D in this rose mesh edition that I’ve chosen from their current collection? It’s really something different than all the other brands but still keeps its elegancy. Perfect for when you’re wearing a classy outfit.

In this watch the clock is light ash grey, and together with the rose metal it really suits girls who like to make a subtle but special appearance. Here I’ve combined it with pink, that matches the rose and makes the grey stand out. What do you think of this color combo? I always choose mesh over any leather straps since my experience is that they will last way longer. Especially with this price you want to gift something that’s durable.

For US citizens you can shop the watch by clicking here. All Dutch readers can shop the watch here, since different web shops offer different prices (and shipping costs).

*This is a sponsored blogpost. Yet I do test and give my honest opinion about the brands and items I promote.

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead and let me know what you think of my new watch in the comments of course. Looking forward to read your thoughts!

TRAVEL BLOG BRUGES BRUGGE

TRAVEL BLOG BRUGES – Hotel and the city

Hi girls! Here’s my very first travel blog outside The Netherlands for you, and I can’t be more excited! I hope you’ve all enjoyed my Stories the past few days, to get a glimpse of the hotel and of course of Bruges. We stayed in the prettiest hotel called Relais & Chateaux Hotel Heritage, with everything on walking distance. Relais & Chateaux stands for the privately-owned organization of hotels which they’re a member of.

About the hotel:

First of all I want to thank the super friendly and helpful staff of this pretty hotel and one of the owners Isabelle. They’ve helped Wendy and me during our stay to take pictures, as I didn’t anticipate on going there with Wendy in the first place. Thanks to them we took some really cool shots and I can’t thank them enough for that!

The hotel is situated right in a quiet ally next to the city centre, called the ‘Grote Markt’ where you will find museums and the more touristic café’s. Wendy and I only had one day and night to explore the city. We visited some coffee places and also of course we also took the typical Bruges scenery shots. Bruges is really romantic and definitely worth visiting during the weekend to surprise your girl- or boyfriend. You really go back in time and the hotel is styled in a very baroque/romantic way as you can see in the pictures.

About the room:

The rooms are tidy, clean and furnished with large baroque chairs and a big master beds. The facilities are all super modern though, with a tv, ipad and airconditioning in the room. I love the fact that they even have the telephones in this baroque style which is a finishing touch to the hotel room. Right next to the reception downstairs is a beautiful bar and restaurant, which serves the most delicious dishes. We were really spoiled the night we stayed as we had 8 courses with perfectly fitted wine with it! It is definitely worth dining in the hotel I would say.

You can check out and book the room we stayed in by clicking here.

About Bruges:

Have you ever thought about visiting Belgium or Bruges? I think this is really the perfect city for a romantic setting. Although there are many tourists, I can definitely see why people fall in love with this small town. The atmosphere is quiet, almost medieval, and there are no modern buildings to be found. Make sure you book it when it’s not high season because I think it would be too crowded if you do. About the duration: two days and one night are enough to explore the city in my opinion.

Let me know what you think of my small review of this travel blog Bruges? Would you like to see more video or a travel vlog next time? As always I’m curious what you girls think regarding this and I would love to take you with me as much as possible!
