Shopping in Milan part 2

October 20, 2012

Some more pictures of our shopping trip to Milan.
The first complete day in Milan, we had dinner at Papermoon. One of the restaurants in Milan, with the best pizza’s. A small, cosy, restaurant with a lot of fashionable people.  It’s in a small street, you probably won’t even notice.
At our last day we went for some sweets, to Armani at via Manzoni. Yes, sweets did I said.    They sell amazing chocolates, and even have a florist!

Nog wat foto’s van onze shop-trip naar Milaan.
Op de eerste volle dag in Milaan, hebben we gedineerd bij Papermoon. 1 van de restaurant in Milaan, met de beste pizza’s. Een knus restaurant met alleen maar fashionable mensen. Het restaurant zit in een smal steegje, die normaal gesproken niet opvalt. Op onze laatste dag, gingen we naar Armani, voor wat zoetigheid, op de via Manzoni. Ja, zoetigheid, ze verkopen bij Armani heerlijke chocolade, en ze hebben zelfs een bloemenwinkeltje.DSC_0081

Shopping in Milan

October 19, 2012

Exactly one week ago, I arrived in Milan. 3 full days of shopping in the agenda. Waited for those days for weeks. And finally, the day was there. At 23.30, Niels, Dwain, and I, arrived at the airport in Bergamo, and took the taxi to the hotel in Milan. The next day we started shopping immediately. We went to the Bvlgari Hotel for coffee, and some rest. I went to this hotel before, and it’s amazing. The interiour is wonderful, and even the smell in the hotel makes you feel comfortable. We decided to have a look at the menu for the breakfast for the upcoming days. (We shouldn’t done that…) after the coffee, Niels bought a whole outfit at Armani, thanks to this amazing Italian guy with a good taste of style.
My day was the second day. I found everything I was looking for; Burberry sweater, Chanel flats, and the J Brand brocade jeans, which I desperately needed.
After those purchases, and a painful back, we went to our hotel to change, and prepared for our dinner at NOBU. How I love Japanese food!
The last but not least day, I bought a Louis Vuitton bracelet. It’s my first, and def. not the last one. Pics of my purchases will be in my next post. This was my number 8 visit in Milan. It’s still my number one city for shopping… What is yours?

Precies 1 week geleden landde ik met het vliegtuig in Milaan, met 3 volle shop-dagen in de agenda, was het eindelijk zover! Om 23.30 landde Niels, Dwain, en ik, op het vliegveld van Bergamo, om vervolgens met de taxi naar het hotel in Milaan te gaan. De volgende dag zijn we gelijk begonnen met shoppen, en gingen we naar het Bvlgari hotel voor koffie en een pauze. Ik was al eerder in het Bvlgari hotel geweest, en het is prachtig. Het interieur is mooi, en zelfs de geur van het hotel geeft je een “ik-wil-hier-niet-meer-weg-gevoel”.
We namen een kijkje in de menukaart van het ontbijt voor de volgende dagen (dit hadden we dus niet moeten doen). Na de pauze gingen we verder met shoppen. Niels kocht een complete outfit bij Armani, met dank aan de geweldige Italiaan met een stijl waar je “U” tegen zegt. Mijn dag, was de 2e dag. Ik vond waar ik al even naar op zoek was: een Burberry sweater, Chanel flats, en DE J brand brocade jeans (welke ik echt MOEST hebben). Na al deze aankopen, zere rug inclusief, gingen we naar het hotel om om te kleden en voor te bereiden op het dinner bij Armani NOBU. TE lekker Japans eten.
Op de laatste dag kocht ik nog een Louis Vuitton armband. M’n eerste, en zeker niet m’n laatste. Foto’s van m’n aankopen komen in m’n volgende post. Dit bezoekje aan Milaan was voor mij de 8e keer. Het blijft mijn nummer 1 plaats om te shoppen… Wat is jouw favoriete winkelstad? DSC_0045

Antwerp with my new Celine

June 18, 2012

Last Thursday I went to Antwerp. Hotel de Witte Lelie gave us the opportunity to sleep at their new, renovated room. And I can tell you, it was amazing! A large bathroom with an amazing shower in the middle of the bathroom. Freedom all around you! Unfortunately I had to hurry the next morning, otherwise I probably stayed there for at least an hour. All the staff is very friendly, and helpfull. Just like I told you before; they give you that ultimate “coming home feeling”.
When we arrived at the hotel, and admired the hotel room, we went to “Dock’s cafe”. A restaurant with a household feeling. Not very chic, but comfi it was! I couldn’t hide the picture from you of the dessert (a hot chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream) simple, but delicious.

And as promised, finally pictures of my Celine Phantom bag. I love it. It’s amazing how the brand Celine has such beautiful products, with a lot of “less is more”! Besides, in the meantime I bought a Celine wallet and shoes as well. Kinda becoming obsessed.

Enjoy the first part of Antwerp!

Paris, je t’aime

June 7, 2012

The second day, we started the day with an amazing breakfast: Croissants, jus d’orange, some amazing French confiture, and more (probably too much).
After breakfast, we went to the city of Paris, to have a look at Balenciaga and Celine… I still had to make my decision between two bags. After a visit to those two stores, we went to The Four Seasons George V hotel, so I could made up my mind. The first thing that stands out at this hotel, is the entrance. The view from the outside at the hotel is amazing. The most expensive cars, big windows with a lot of gold, and walls from marble.
The inside of the hotel is very spacial. The first thing that stands out, were definitely the flowers. Peonies, my favorite flowers. You find them everywhere in the hotel. From the entrance, to the bar, to the toilet, in many different colors. While having coffee, I made the decision about the bag. It became the Celine Phantom. (Post coming soon).

After this great weekend, we went home. We ended the day with dinner in Antwerp, Belgium. We had a great time, and will go back soon! Paris, je t’aime
