Evelien is mommy of Piet (2010), Tycho (2012) and pregnant with her third child (a girl!) and lives with pleasure with husband and kids in Amsterdam. She loves to discover places where the kids can freely move and play and where it looks and feels good for the parent(s) as well, because that can be a challenge sometimes. Luckily there are increasingly more places where this combination is a match. In the coming blogs she will share her findings with you guys.
I don’t go to the Jordaan very often, but every time I think it’s a feast to cycle through the small streets and discover nice boutiques, coffee spots and restaurants. I recently came across the super fun Unicorn Boutique in the Tweede Tuindwarsstraat, a little gem with super original stuff like clothes, jewelry, pillows and shoes. For young and old. With brands like Soft Gallery, Oeuf New York and Bobo Choses. But also Salt Water Sandels in adult sizes! And very cute rings, so I bunch of nice stuff! It was a beautiful day and I was on my way to the White Cloud Studio were Bear’s Healing Centre is situated.
So not a hotspot to go to with the kids this time, but one you have to go to alone and that will make you happy. Sometimes, it’s good to spoil yourself a bit!

Bear’s Healing Centre in Amsterdam
A while ago I found out a girl I know from college has her own practice, Bear’s Healing Centre. The story behind Emilie is touching and beautiful, she was diagnosed with ME when she was 20 years old and the doctors didn’t have a treatment-plan for her in Holland. She went to look for alternative healing. After a long way she ended up in the desert of New Mexico where she lived in a small village for a while and where she’s healed. Check out her extraordinary story here!
Long story short, I went to Emilie twice for a Lomi Lomi massage (once pregnant and once not) and my god, that feels so good! You can feel her doing everything she can to see you get off the table reborn. I’m a fan and I’m absolutely going again soon! She has a special table for the pregnant belly, so I could lie on my stomach, no problem and very comfortable.
And don’t forget to pay a visit to Unicorn Boutique, I predict that you won’t leaf empty handed!
