Inspiration / Berlin

This is my 50’s post! I have over 50 followers! Yay, 4 months in the running and standing strong ;)…

Well, back to bloggin’
Only 3 more days untill we leave to visit Berlin. Although it is only 624km to Berlin I have never been there, but wanting for a whole lot of years. Not only is Berlin trending and full of interesting/inspirational people. This city has a history like no other city in the world.

As most of you know Berlin was the epicentrum during World War II and afterwards divided in West and East Berlin untill 1989. That is 50 years of differences, poor and rich, suppression and pure history.

Ofcourse, being Dutch I have been brougthup with stories about World War II and everything that changed after. Also first hand by my grandparents, who all live through this awfull time, but in school this was one of the main subjects during history lessons.

Logically, I need to be visiting the Holocaust Museum, checkpoint Charlie, what is left of the Berlin wall and so on…but today I want to share with you some trendy spots in Berlin which are on my list to visit. I put together a day programme, all credits go to Petite Passport.

New in / Primark overload

Last week I went to Essen in Germany again, where you find one of the biggest Primark stores there are. 6 floors of clothes, jewelry, shoes, beauty and products for your home. You can imagine it took me some time to go through all the racks and only have 8 products for the fitting room. Well after 1,5 hour I managed. I was ready to fit and try, that was when the fire alarm went off…..

Really, I am not joking they had to evacuate the whole building, six floors of shopaholics who had to leave there precision baskets behind close doors. Luckily, everything was over within 30 minutes and I found my basket again. I think it was a exercise, but they will never tell…

Here are my fashion finds, I managed to stay under 70 euros.

I would like to know if you shop at Primark and what you think about the store and the concept?

Excuse me for the bad photography, but I am still working on this my skills and I should have made the pictures in broad daylight, except I am at work then.

New in / Jewelry and wishlist items

My shopping spree went very succesfull. I love shopping in Germany, because they have them American shopping malls (which aren’t allowed in the Netherlands). I like having all my favorite shops on one location and a roof above my head, since it usually rains. Here are my brand new items.

Jewelry

Earrings – Pieces
Leather necklace – Pieces
Cross Bangles – Be Loved, but you can also find here

From my wishlist / shopping spree

Tweed jacket – Mango
Leather jacket – Zara
Boots – Sacha shoes
Nailpolish – Essie, bikini so teeny – limited edition

I had to leave the leather Zara shopper/bag, because my budget wasn’t able to handle that. But I am still in love <3, should I still get it?

Diary / UEFA Euro 2012

Okay, okay I am a girl…so what do you want to say? Girls don’t know anything about football? Well you are wrong! We Dutchies love football, guys or girls.

This weekend was all about the kick-off UEFA Euro 2012. It is still a open wound as we came in second at the World Cup in 2010. The Netherlands haven’t won since 1988, I was 2 years old back then. So let’s go Dutchies….

1. I really need to stop buying stuff 😀
2. Our orange dresses, check out my winning ways dress blogpost
3. We went to the square nearby the central station and watch football together on some big screens. The atmospfere was really good.
4. Me and my girls, in my orange outfit, but this didn’t help….failure 😦
5. Next blogpost about this new item
6. Next game against Germany tomorrow

So are you following the UEFA 2012? Which country is your favorite?
