A day in Amsterdam

woohooO!!! I’m finally back and so ready to keep telling you about my adventures. So let’s talk about Amsterdam.

 

Sitting down with my aunt in London, looking at the map and at tickets, I decided to go there about a day or two before I actually did. So heads up guys!! everything about it was soooo last minute.

I was in town for one day only. A day full of joy.

I got there very early in the morning and took the train to “Amsterdam Centraal”, on my way made a  friend (she was a Brazilian student) and we decided to go for breakfast together. We found a little cozy place not far from Amsterdam Centraal, it wasn’t vegan, but tea, juice, and a plate of fruit got me going.

At this point, I still had my carry on with me and had no idea about anything bc it was also my first time visiting. Yes.

There was a hotel by, I went to ask about staying there and it was fully booked. Luckily I overheard about lockers at Amsterdam central, and your girl who was just across the street had no plans, but definitely, wasting part of the morning looking for a hotel wasn’t it. Went there to ask, locked her stuff for about 💶€15, and off to explore. So fancy lmao. (It was very safe guys like you need your credit card and a code to open it). Consider it if you are going on a short trip.

I wore an oversized t-shirt, short leggings, and snickers, which was great to comfortably walk around the city all day. No make-up, only sun cream, and red lipstick.

On my bag: sunglasses, watch, beautifying oil, red lipstick, portable charger, passport, 💶 💳.

I spend the day exploring nonstop, and while The Anne Frank House and some museums are on my next list, I made it to tulips and art markets, independent shopping streets, canals, Museumplein, different parks, Red Light District (the energy there was sooo creepy), The Arty Jordaan, blah blah blah.

I loved how locals bike everywhere.       My beautiful hair expressing itself freely on this picture, right before I found the tastiest vegan place. 😋 🌱

Have I mentioned my cousin lives there?, so I got in touch and gladly no meter how last minute it was him and his family managed it to meet me around 4 pm (THANK YOU❤️, sorry I could not stay ), they showed me the rest of the city, we went for dinner and I headed to my next stop, France 🇫🇷 . Will tell you more on my next post.

If you have no rush and are just down to adventure like I was, once you get to Amsterdam you can take the train to “Amsterdam Centraal”, from there it’s easy to get to pretty much everywhere.

Grand Canyon & Hoover Dam

Hey Guys!!!

I hope everyone is doing great and wish you all a successful week.

I just went to The Grand Canyon last week, and I felt in love. It is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever been. Let me share some photos with you!

On the way! 🚘🏜

Minnesota State Fair 2017

Today i went to The Minnesota State Fair which is the largest state fair in the United States by average daily attendance.

It is so fun and beautiful, no wonder why

I had an amazing time there.img_3343-3

Residents of the state and many other places come to the fair to be entertained, exhibit their products , show off their art, and enjoy many different types of food.img_3510

I specially felt in love with this vintage bag designed and made by Selina Vaughan ( http://www.selinavaughan.etsy.com ); by the way an amazing human who didn’t mind me playing and posing around for a decent time until I found the winner XD.

This can be use as a cross body or as a bag pack. How cool is that???

So yeah, it came home with me.🤗img_3506

I have a new adventures companion.💖

It fits a laptop and a couple of other things, and it’s very comfy.

Here is the next one that cachet my eyes!img_3461

I really like it, specially to wear with denim… you know, unique cool stuff.img_3496-1And this one I kind of want to wear with white high waisted shorts, fun simple v neck, Rayban Wayfarer, toms , and go!

How about this hand made baskets and hats from Ghanacrazy.com ?

They are so cool, and the owners Tom & Rene’ Omlid are very personable, you will love buying from them.

 

I also loved this stand!

The way Richard & Linda Hamilton transform trash into art is very creative.

Now let’s check somo of the crochet horses and murals.

Actually I didn’t eat all of the food lol.

Everything looked good, but as a vegan I was only able to eat their fresh French Fries. 🍟 They were delicious .😋

The fair runs for twelve days from late August into early September, ending on Labor Day.

I might be back before it ends, and will take a bunch of photos to share with you guys.

The Minnesota State Fair was named the best state fair in the United States in 2015 by readers of USA today.
