Being casual while being cultural

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

As you may have noticed, posts on my blog have been coming out less frequently in the last months (compared to my Instagram posts, at least). That's just because work has been really busy still.. however, it does not mean that I have stopped doing fashionable things! :-)

And one of these more recent things I did, was visiting a gorgeous picturesque area near Amsterdam called 'de Zaanse Schans' with my good friend Bianca. The whole region is filled with windmills, factories and museums that all give a really good idea of how the industry used to be a couple of centuries ago. And how it evolved into the current state.


As you can also see.. it's super touristic! I heard so many languages and I saw so many nationalities!


More importantly, the weather was so nice and sunny.. so obviously, I made good use of it by getting my pictures and videos taken. My friend kept clicking so you can see me walking to the bridge, getting the pose right.. and then taking the actual photo! :-P


There wasn't just stuff to admire outside. Inside or next to most of the windmills, there were little stores and/or workshops where you could spend money on souvenirs. I love cheese.. so I just had to get that photo on the right!


After strolling outside, we also went to the Zaanse Museum where we learned so many more things about the windmills, the industry, the history of the region of the Zaan and even more insightful.. about the no-nonsense mentality of the people who lived there throughout the centuries.


We spent so much time in the museum that we more or less got kicked out of the museum because it was closing time! It was a great day.. outside and indoor. It's a beautiful region and if you're ever near Amsterdam and want to do something just outside of Amsterdam.. look no further!


Bianca was so kind to also shoot some video clips of me.. they're not very special but I always try to have some moving images of me as well!

  4. I love your red jacket!!! I might confuse you for a rock star:) You look smoking hot here!!! Fabulous jeans and heels as well. Fantastic photos.

    To answer your question, the novel is historical fiction genre but it could also be said that it is a crime novel. It has more that one sequel and this sequel focused a lot on solving one murder, so historical/crime novel I would say.

  35. It looks like you had so much fun here! And I love that you love cheese! Haha. That pic made my day. My home state of Wisconsin is pretty darn proud of their cheese production...so, I love me some cheese as well. ;) Your jacket is so gorgeous! I love you whole outfit (as always)!
