We have all heard of all the places Amsterdam has to offer. What most don't know is that Rotterdam has so much to offer to. Since I was born here and have been living here ever since, it's safe to say that I'm an expert when it comes to fun places to visit. I thought it would be best to split up the city guide into 4 categories - food, architecture, amusement and shopping. I decided to start the guide with everyone's favorite category: food! I always try to nourish my body with healthy food so these hotspots have been selected on this. However, it's super delicious, trust me.
From top to bottom:
Picknick Probably the cutest lunchrooms in town. Their menu is absolutely delicious (when I was studying I visited their place almost two times a week) and everything is fresh/bio. As the title already suggest, their interior gives you the impression of a cozy picknick with friends or loved ones. They serve anything from sandwiches to soups and quiches. If you are a fish lover please try the salmon sandwich (its my favorite).
Burgertrut How does a delicious fresh burger sound to you? Delicious right? Burgertrut serves great food in a hospitable living room setting that reminds you of your grandma. Next to their variety of veggie burgers they serve organic beef burgers for those that can't do without. Whether you're a hardcore vegetarian, flexible "flexitarian" or open minded carnivore; they have got what you want!
Charlotte's Kitchen In the middle of the city centre, Charlotte's Kitchen is the perfect place to relax and enjoy fresh cakes, sandwiches or soup. Their menu is bio, interior vintage and reflects beautifully in the industrial room they are in. They are open until the 11th of December, due renovations. So if you are looking for delicious fresh bio food, make sure to stop by before they close! Spirit Last but not least, Spirit. Their philosophy is to create food that is good for the human body with respect for animals and the environment, meaning their food is 100% bio and 100% vegan. Their interior is modern and menu divers. Everyday they serve fresh food, buffet style. You can choose anything you like, from sweet potatoes to crispy veggies and delicious vegan desserts. Spirit is suitable for any time of day, whether you are just waking up or heading out for dinner!
I frequently get questions about my daily beauty routine. As I basically wear and use the same beauty products regularly, I thought it was a great idea to start of with my signature beauty products. Later this week I will share my skincare products and after that hair. One of the things most people remind me by are my red lips, in the years that I have worn red lipstick I have only switched colors twice. Currently I'm back to my favorite, the red lipstick I started wearing for the first time namely Ruby Woo. The color is very vibrant and long lasting. The only downside to Ruby Woo is that it dry's out your lips since it's a matt lipstick. This was the reason I switched to Russian Red last winter, that one is a lot smoother and suitable for winter. The color is slightly darker but I like a darker red in winter anyways. When it comes to fragrances, I always switch every three months or so. There are always scents I love and will get back to but I also like to try out new ones every now and then. Right now I'm addicted to the fragrances by Jil Sander, including the shower gel. It's so fresh and sweet that it's right up my alley. What are you favorite beauty products?
