Saturday brunch at the Happiness Cafe

saturday brunch outfit ootd alan red

Hi loves, how has your weekend been so far? Mine has been pretty great, except for my fur-baby getting sick…

Yesterday evening we went out for Sushi dinner with my grandma, my parents and my brother. The food was delicious and we were stuffed! I always like going out for food on Saturdays as it gives such a relaxed feeling. I mean, good food which you don’t have to cook yourself, a good atmosphere, talking with whomever you are having breakfast / lunch / dinner with. For me a food-date like this is what weekends are made for… 🙂

So last weekend me and love went to the Happiness Cafe in Eindhoven for a delicious and healthy Saturday brunch! With a salty caramel brownie, banana bread, a smoothie bowl and a chunky yoghurt bowl, yummm! Let me show you a little bit more about our ultimate relaxation moment: Our Saturday brunch at the Happiness Cafe!

Featuring 2 outfits by the way! I’m wearing a wool coat by Alan Red*, shawl by IMYF, leather jacket, white blouse by Uniqlo, Zara skirt and Unisa overknees*. Mayckel is wearing a shawl from IMYF, denim jacket by Pure Blue Japan, chino from Uniqlo and Topshop boots.

Travel: London citytrip VLOG

London Citytrip Tower Bridge

Hi loves,

As some of you might know I have been on a London Citytrip the second weekend of 2017, because what better way to start the new year?! Well, without 4 hours delay and the #TubeStrikes of course haha. Our trip did not really go as planned and we saw less than we wanted to see, still we had a bunch of fun, had some successful shopping moments and most importantly, we laughed – A LOT! 🙂

Check out my London Citytrip vlog and the photos of this trip after the read more button! I hope you will like it and I can’t wait to tell you about the fabulous two hotels we stayed at; CitizenM Tower of London and the Mandeville Hotel!

Beauty: Favorite winter beauty products and my routine

favorite-winter-beauty-products

Happy Sunday loves!

Today I want to share my favorite beauty products for winter with you all.
Skincare is so important to me, especially in winter! My skin can be a mess if I use products that are to rich for my skin and it can get dry if I do not hydrate well enough. I think I’m probably not the only one with this problem and that’s why I am sharing this today.

Besides skincare products I also decided to share some of my favorite make-up products. The items above are some of the beauty products that I use daily or a lot. Of course I have way more favorites but it would become a very long list to share!

Check out a little bit of extra information and where to buy after the read more button! Maybe you can make someone very happy with one of these products as a Christmas or late-Sinterklaas gift! 🙂

Train of thoughts: Winter is coming

train of thoughts winter is coming

Hi babes,

November flew by really fast. Can you believe that it is December already?! I just started working at my new job and already 3 weeks have past. I have done a lot of different things already and it’s amazing that I am learning new things again! When I noticed the time is ticking so fast I started thinking, winter is coming.

All this while I am still editing and having to post outfits that are perfect for fall but not at all suitable for the ice cold winter. Whoops. I really noticed that having an almost fulltime job gives me a lot of structure and security. But on the other hand I have no idea what happens to my free time haha. My first real weekend ended before I even had the chance to do something for myself or the blog and the same goes for my evenings. I figured that a good planning is everything when combining a job, a blog and a social life haha. So that is actually what I am doing right now, figuring out how to combine everything in a way that I’ll still have me-time as well! I feel like it is already going a bit better with managing my time 🙂

Another thing that is unfortunately keeping my busy is my health… It started about a month ago, my cluster period. The period in which I am having a sort of tension headache everyday and immense “shoot me” headache attacks once every two days. In the former years it also was waved away a bit but this year I went to the doctors again. I just started with trying out imigran nosesprays and had two acupuncture meetings so far. I feel like it does help a bit so far but I am a bit sceptical and I don’t want to get to hopeful yet. Should you have any tips or tricks for me to deal with my headaches please let me know…

Winter is coming

So with December here and winter on it’s way I’m very much looking forward to the holidays and to New Years Eve! I also can’t wait for 2017, after years where I am telling myself it’s going to be my year, this year I am absolutely sure it’s going to be my year! I love my career, the blog is going pretty good and I am in such a good please. It sometimes feels to good to be true and I feel so blessed!

What are you up to this month? Feel free to share your train of thoughts in the comments.

Baci,
Saranda

Saturday night drinks: INK Hotel cocktail challenge

inkhotel-cocktail-challenge-saturday-night-drinks4

Hello loves,

With the cold wind outside it’s the perfect moment to tell you about a cocktail challenge I had a while ago! In collaboration with INK hotel Amsterdam and their bar Pressroom Amsterdam (which is located in a very old former printing office) I took on the big challenge to create the perfect fall / winter cocktail. The task? Using a secret wintery ingredient. Well I’ll just be honest, my mind instantly screamed: APPLE PIE! And so here it is, my cocktail, the DiSaranda Originale, a Disaronno Apple Pie cocktail.

First step when you are creating your own cocktail? Figuring out which liquors go well together and how you want your cocktail to look and taste. So I went on a little inspiration trip through google, my cocktail books and my liquor collection.

Before I’ll start I am going to be completely honest with you. I don’t drink a lot and I don’t drink often but I always love a good cocktail, or 2, or 3. Having a drink is no problem and it can be the best thing sometimes to just kick back and enjoy a good glass of wine or a cocktail. However, always drink responsible and if you ever feel like you might have a drinking problem, talk to someone and get help.

Baci,
Saranda
