• ..Fancy a cuppa? ☕️☺️ // So tell me guys, are you in team coffee or tea? I’m definitely a tea-lover! I prefer to drink all kinds of green tea and you can make me with happy fresh ginger/mint as well🌿 As you can probably imagine, with a gorgeous backdrop like this, I was totally in my happy place.. • | Madison Restaurant, London
• Tulip paradise..❤️🌷 // Can you imagine being surrounded by thousands of vibrant, colorful tulips? ☺️ During Spring season, I always make sure to visit the bulb fields. They’re only in bloom for a very short period, so you need to plan your trip carefully. This time, @ishanaa4 & I went to the fields when the season had almost ended, but luckily we stumbled upon this one. Someone actually had to pinch me to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.. ;-) | Lisse, The Netherlands
• Hints of pink.. 💗 // Sooo, this week was my last week of class EVER! It’s still quite hard to believe my uni-life has almost come to an end after 5 years of studying. Only one more exam to go which I’ll be writing within 2 weeks.. In case you’re looking for me, I’ll prob be sitting behind my laptop surrounded by lots of articles, books & tea. 👵🏽 • | Notting Hill, London
• Take my hand and I’ll show you the world.. 🌸🐾 // Recently, I had the chance to visit Zijpe, which is home to one of the largest contiguous flowerfields in the world! Once a year, they organize an exclusive walking tour through the fields. Strolling alongside dozens of colorful flowers was absolutely an amazing experience I won’t easily forget 🙌🏾• | Zijpe, The Netherlands
• No matter how busy, hectic & stressful life can be, “𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘺𝘰𝘶..” 💗 // Just simply being in this station makes me want to pack my bags and travel somewhere far. There’s definitely something special about this place, and when I heard they recently installed a new art piece, I had to see it with my own eyes! • | St Pancras International , London
• Mum, this one’s for you.. 🌷// To all the powerful, caring, sweet & passionate mums out there, you deserve the world. Thank you for always taking care of us and making our lives complete. Happy Mothersday! 💋• | Lisse, The Netherlands

One of the ways to get into the ultimate Christmas spirit is undoubtedly visiting a good old  Christmas market. I went to one in Leiden in the late afternoon after a serious shopping session. The market is held for 13 days in December. Besides all the Christmas stalls, plenty of food/drink options & live performances, it’s possible to book a canal tour and even test your ice-staking skills. It’s situated in the city centre at the Nieuwe Rijn, and the most jaw-dropping part: it’s floating!  Yes you heard it right, they actually managed to install both the ice rink and the Christmas market in the canal. Pretty awesome, right? It’s the first floating market in Holland, and no worries, you won’t feel any movements 😉

“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world

and behold, everything is

softer and more beautiful…”

When entering the market around 4 pm, I felt like I’d arrived just in time. The sun began to set and all the lights slowly became more vivid and sparkly. Standing on the Koornbrug overlooking the crowds and sea of lights was absolutely a magical experience. As you can probably imagine, my photography-loving heart started to beat a lot faster…
