Travel: Citizen M Rotterdam

Citizen M Rotterdam Living Room SarandaAdriana dutch fashion lifestyle blog travel

Morning loves,

The weekend has flown by again and I can’t imagine it’s already two weekends ago that I stayed in the Citizen M in Rotterdam to visit the IFFR (International Film Festival Rotterdam).

So today I wanted to tell you a bit about my stay at the Citizen M hotel and the movie I saw at the IFFR. The Citizen M Rotterdam hotel is different from most other hotels. One does not immediatly step into the lobby, we stept into the hallway which had a gorgeous spiral staircase. From the moment you step into the hotel you saw design everywhere. Interesting in-house architecture and interior styling come together with almost perfect balance. The atmosphere relaxed and home-y, but with many cool things to spot from within the corners of your eyes. Let’s just say that the Citizen M hotel in Rotterdam is a true hotspot!

Read on to read my full experience at Citizen M and the IFFR!

Hotel report – Hotel de France Invalides

hotel de france invalides fashion travel blog sarandaadriana10

Ciao loves,

I already told you a bit about my trip to Paris but I did not tell you much yet about my hotel! So here it is, a little hotel report about my stay at Hotel de France Invalides! 

Through Buzz&Go a travel influencer agency I got in contact with Hotel de France and I got enthusiatic very fast. This hotel is just gorgeous and is located in one of the most vibrant arrondissements of Paris, the 7th arrondissement. On walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and very close to the Invalides Dome.

We were given a very warm welcome upon arrival and got assigned on the best rooms of the hotel, number 503 and 603 are the best ones I have been told 😉 And we got number 503. Our hotel room featured everything needed for a comfortable stay. A super big Queen size bed (although a little bit too short for the very tall boyfriend), a shower / bath combination, a mini-bar, a water cooker to make coffee and tea (or in our case cup-a-soup). But as said, we also had the most gorgeous view from our window and balcony!

Baci,
Saranda

Travel Thursday – Paris is PURE love

Travel Paris pure love Invalides Blog SarandaAdriana1

Ciao dearies,

Wednesday a week ago I came back late late in the evening from truly one of the best trips I have ever made in my life. Together with my boyfriend I decided to still go to Paris, despite all that happend on Friday the 13th last month. I have had many thoughts on still going or not. But I didn’t want to get affraid and I don’t want to give these monsters such a power over me. So we went. And I am so happy that we did! It was our first trip ever to Paris and we fell in love with this gorgeous city!

Paris is PURE LOVE! <3

When the Thalys announced this big pro-MO action for Movember we booked a super cheap return ticket to Paris as we really needed a little getaway together. We decided to go for 2 days and 2 nights, which was way too short haha 😉

Thanks to Buzz and Go we found a great hotel, Hotel de France Invalides* which gave us the perfect room with an amazing view as seen above (aaaaah!!! <3). It really was an unforgetable trip and in today’s blogpost I will tell you all about it!

Baci,
Saranda

Travel Thursday – romantic getaway Ghent

travel thursday ghent belgium fashion blogger ibis accor hotels report

Ciao dearies,

Last weekend I was invited to stay a night in the lovely Ibis Centrum Opera hotel in Ghent. As I am quiet stressed out lately thanks to the job hunt this was a very welcome romantic getaway with my boyfriend. We planned our little weekend trip around Friday the 13th and Valentines day and well, a lucky and lovely weekend it was!

We started our trip to Ghent around 10 AM from our hometown Eindhoven to Ghent, via Antwerp. The first part of our journey was by bus and from Antwerp Central Station we continued by train. In Antwerp we already spotted some gorgeous architecture! I had never been in Antwerp before, still only saw the Central Station last weekend, but at least I have seen this gorgeous train station. The walls, floors, windows, everything looked like it was from a fairytale… And this was only one building of the many I came across during the whole weekend!!

Read on for the full weekend report and some more about my stay at the Ibis hotel in Ghent!

Travel: 24 hours in London

London travel report sarandaadriana sarandipity fashion blog8

Ciao dearies,

Two weeks ago I went to London for a bit more than 24 hours and today I am telling you a bit more about this long day I spend in London! As normally when I go on a trip with my boyfriend it was quiet the adventure haha.

On Thursday morning we had an early flight from Eindhoven to London Stansted airport. As we flew at 8 and we went back in time for one hour we also landed around 8 o’clock and so we would have a really long day in this gorgeous city. At least that’s what we thought. Normally when I fly with Ryanair I am on my way from the airport home or to the city center in just 20 minutes. But London Stansted is HUGE(!) for a regional airport, plus there was this weird check in thing we needed to do with our passports… Ah well, we arrived in the city around 11:00 and first we went to see the financial district as it was my boyfriends birthday gift and he really wanted to see the big skyscraper buildings from the biggest investment banking firms.

Read on after the read more button and see some of my other photos! 🙂
