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,

Wednesday’s Pinspiration #14

Wednesdays Pinspiration Spring 2015 inspirational collage dutch fashion blogger sarandaadriana

Ciao dearies,

Although the sun is not yet shining every day, spring is officially here and I thought it would be time to celebrate this with a little bit of spring inspiration!

I am still madly in love with pastels and I don’t think this love affair will end anytime soon. Combining pastels with black and white is easy with my current wardrobe but I still can use some statement items like the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Paris (or the Milano version, I am still in doubt!). And some items from the H&M Studio collection.

Besides my spring wardrobe that needs a little bit of updating, hehe, I am also looking forward to making some amazing trips again. Small ones or bigger ones. So far there are no definite plans, but I might visit Paris next week and I hope to be able to go on some new adventures with my love this spring / summer again as well. Only the idea of planning trips together gives me a whole bunch of new inspiration already! ^^

What do you think of the items seen in this Wednesday’s Pinspiration collage?

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! 🙂

Sunday Special – I am going to London baby

I am going to London babyCiao ragazzi,

Oh my I am sooo excited! This week I am going on a one day (24 hours and a bit) trip to London together with my boyfriend! It’s actually a birthday present from me to him as he always spoiled me with the most amazing gift and well, he deserved it!

So this Thursday I am off to London for a long day and I can not wait. I am going to London baby!!

As we will only have a short amount of time we are very busy making a good planning for the day and of course there are some things that we just have to see. And there will be some shopping involved to ofcourse! Personally I really want to go to Harrods and Victoria’s Secret. But as it is my boyfriends day he will call most of the shots haha.

We already know that we want to visit the Natural History Museum for sure, as it is free and it seems to be a pretty amazing museum! Furthermore we of course have to see the St. Pauls Cathedral, the Big Ben, the Tower bridge, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the famous squares of course. And since it is around Christmas time already we will definitely visit Hyde Park a.k.a. Winter Wonderland from December! Aaah I really can not wait hihi.

Do you have any tips and tricks to spend the most amazing day in London
