Flashback to... Vogue Fashion's Night Out Amsterdam

What better to do on a rainy day than dreaming of tropical holiday destinations, sweet cocktails and sexy bikinis? My thought exactly! Vogue Fashion’s Night Out was celebrated already a while ago, but I didn’t want to keep these lovely pictures from you.

I think Vogue Fashion’s Night Out is always so inspiring! Fashion stores show their new collections, DJs are playing everywhere, beautiful people are literally dancing on the street, champagne is flowing, canapes are served and people really make an effort to look their best!

This year unfortunately I had very little time, since I had to wake up at 4 a.m. to catch a flight to Italy… that didn’t stop me from going of course! The most important stop of the night was Kabana Resort Wear, an amazing new store located in the Conservatorium Hotel.

I felt like I walked right into the tropics…there were fresh coconut cocktails, beautiful models wearing the latest swimwear, there was a DJ and then there were all those lovely new clothes and accessories.

Want to know more about Kabana Resort Wear? Please read my previous review here:

Other highlights of VFNO 2015 were the Tunes Bar and Skins Cosmetics, both at the Conservatorium Hotel, Zara Home, American Vintage and the P.C. Hooftstraat. Too bad VFNO is held only once a year!

Ps. The stunning flower arrangements were made by LM Flower Fashion.

Christmas decorations trend... Food!

I know it’s still early to talk about Christmas decorations, but I’m not saying you have to buy anything… yet! Personally, I love preparing for the holiday season in advance, so last week I went to my favourite stores, to take a look at the various trends in Christmas decorations. A big trend this year is food! (Blame it on all those foodies posting food pictures on instagram!)

There are macarons, donuts, cakes and ice cream for the sweet tooths among us; camembert, caviar, sake and Chianti wine for gourmet lovers; and there are chilli peppers, garlic, salami and even an espresso machine for those die-hard made-in-Italy fans!

You can keep it healthy with green beans and corn on the cob, or go for junk food, such as hotdogs and a bottle of beer. Either way... food and drinks are a must in your Christmas tree this year!
