SHOP SOME TASTEFUL SOUVENIRS IN PARIJS by guest blogger Liz

Let me introduce myself; my name is Liz and I live with Lou and our son Flip (0). We live in Amsterdam but love to travel around the world. We are always looking for new local hotspots, young designers and trendy gadgets. Cities we’ve been to we re-discover with the little one and a pram ;-)

For someone who doesn’t like ‘standard’, shopping for souvenirs is always hard. On every streetcorner you can buy those famous ‘I love Paris’ shoppers or a ‘nice’ Eiffeltower-statue. But it ís nice to buy a keepsake as a reminder of the trips you make with the kids. Something they can save in their Timecapsule. Continue reading

HOTSPOT CAFE PINSON: Paris on Saturday morning in the 10th by guest blogger Liz

Let me introduce myself; my name is Liz and I live with Lou and our son Flip (0). We live in Amsterdam but love to travel around the world. We are always looking for new local hotspots, young designers and trendy gadgets. Cities we’ve been to we re-discover with the little one and a pram ;-)

In Paris life doesn’t start before 10 am. But our son doesn’t really stick to those times. After an early start at 5.30 am a breakfast at 9.00 am is very welcome. But where do you go to in a city that doesn’t spend time on a ‘petit-dejeuner’? Continue reading

ARTISAN FRIES IN AMSTERDAM SOUTH by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). I live in Amsterdam, with my boyfriend and two kids. Regularly I go out with the boys on Friday, my day off. Of course my boys are super sweet ;) but also real boys who make a lot of noise, knocking over things, making a mess and want to run around. So you can assume that wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing is in any case “kids proof”!

Eating French fries with the kids is always a feast! Mine love it anyway. Mostly, snack bars aren’t known for their flashy interior so you don’t go and sit there with the whole family. On the Ceintuurbaan (113-115) recently opened a new cafeteria and it’s a nice place to be. This is not just a cafeteria, this is one with artisan fries and homemade snacks. Continue reading

BREAKFAST, COFFEE & LUNCH @7 – tried & tested: kids proof! by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). I live in Amsterdam, with my boyfriend and two kids.

So you can assume that wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing is in any case “kids proof”!

In my neighborhood, at the Scheldestraat 92, is one of my favorite places to meet-up (with or without kids). For residents probably no secret, but for the rest of the Netherlands; if you are near the RAI, this is a must visit! Continue reading

BEAUTIFUL SAMPLES AND VINTAGE TREASURES AT THE FLEA MARKET IN ANTWERP by guest blogger Anais

Like myself, many of my friends are in the fashion world! Sounds more glamorous than it actually is by the way. If you represent a women’s brand, it’s well known that very soon your closet is packed with samples that you have purchased for budget prices. Sometimes it’s so bad, that four months later, the cards still adheres and are somewhere in the same shopping bag because you have so much stuff :) Continue reading
