Zierikzee


Zierikzee

After our stop at the beach we went to Zierikzee and walked through this beautiful little village where I obviously stopped for every house or flower worth photographing. There is so much charm in historic places like this one and those fall-blooming anemones where seriously everywhere in Zeeland!

When I was little we would always go to the province Zeeland for the summer, until we exchanged it for the South of France, where we are enjoying our summers for quite some years already (I can't wait to share this year's pictures with you!). Yet this July we went back to Zeeland for two days and it totally refreshed our perfect memories of the beautiful beach, sea and cute little villages. We were lucky with the weather being so perfect and had a lovely lunch at the beach before we went back to the car to visit Zierikzee.

Roseau Box


Roseau Box

When I saw the new AW 14/15 collection of Longchamp, I immediately started saving for the Roseau Box in the gorgeous bordeaux colour. But when I went to their store in Amsterdam, they had the larger version for sale! Right now I'm super glad I went for this one instead of the smaller version, since now I can use it all the time for any school day and take everything with me that I can possibly think of (which happens every day, to be honest). So this one (finally) has a bigger sister, which is totally water resistant and therefore perfect for rainy days and basically any autumn/winter day :)

The Hague: Royal Visit!

The Hague: Royal Visit!

Today I went to The Hague with my family. We started our morning with some shopping and had lunch at Vapiano. Then we walked towards The Binnenhof, which houses the meeting place of both houses of the States General of the Netherlands, as well as the Ministry of General Affairs and the office of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands. We noticed a lot of press and cameras in every size you could think of. When we asked what was about to happen our day trip to The Hague got a Royal flair: King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain came on a state visit to the Netherlands today. They had just been at Palace Noordeinde and had lunch with King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima, and they would visit the Binnenhof and meet the leaders of the Senate and Parliament and the Prime Minister. So we decided to wait for a little while, cause hey, it's not every day you are able to see foreign Royals. When they arrived we were front row and saw them up close and it was pretty cool.
