Inside Hotel NH Collection Amsterdam Barbican Palace.

Hi Guys! I was supposed to post this post about my trip this weekend in Amsterdam earlier this week. But I was totally busy and sick`.. I spent my weekend in Amsterdam. A short citytrip Amsterdam is not far from where I live in Antwerp is an hour’s train ride away with Thalys. This train connects Paris – Amsterdam in less than 4 hours via Brussels, Antwerp and Rotterdam. I wanted to show you my favorite places I visited this weekend where I had never visited before I found them on a nice blog yourlittleblackbook I love this lifestyle blog where I  can really find great addresses especially in the Netherlands and Amsterdam because she is Dutch. I would like to find a blog like this for every city I visit in the world ahah. If you have a lifestyle blog, let me know. I’m planning my next trips right now and I’am looking for new addresses. I can wait for the upcoming  trips.

View of Amsterdam  and my delicious dish at The Avocado Show.

After taking a walk in Amsterdam. Admiring this typical architecture is always a real pleasure. Then I went for lunch at The Avocado Show. One of my favorite places because I’ am a avocado lover. And I especially love this new concept where avocado is the highlight in this restaurant. So avocado lovers you can eat this delicious fruit in any way sweet or salty as salad dish or dessert. The Avocado Show is located in Amsterdam but also in Brussels.

After a few hours in London I am back in Belgium. It’s been a busy day today. When I come home I always have a lot of  things to do. And this week will also be busy between professional appointments and collaborations and I look forward to showing you all the pretty things I have received from amazing brand. I’ll make beauty videos this week like I told you. Here is one of my last outfits in Chicago a leather dress from Zara’s that I have had for a long time. I don’t know yet which beauty video I’m going to film this week but I was thinking maybe by answering one of your beauty questions you sent me. One of the most asked questions was which skincare I use. Now it’s time to get ready for dinner because it’s Friday! Have a good evening.

Location : Millennium Knickerbocker Chicago, USA

Millennium Knickerbocker hotel an historic hotel of Chicago where I spend my last days. This is the second time I’ve been back to this hotel. I completely fell in love the first time I came here with the architecture of this hotel. Opened in 1927 this historic 4-star hotel has a gothic inspired architecture. Later, Al Capone’s brother ran a casino on the Penthouse floor, and in the ’70s, it had a brief stint as the Playboy Towers. Throughout the years, this hotel has been housed such luminaries as John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon and the Rolling Stones. The Georgian style interior architecture brings a chic and authentic touch. This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Chicago perfect for visiting the city by a walk.

This morning I woke up with the same jetlag problem. But actually it doesn’t matter I’m going back to Europe in two days so I preferred to stay on European time. I woke up at 3:00 in the morning. I think I broke my record of woke up early. During my long hours of sleepwalking ah ah I worked, replied to my emails preparing my posts everything I need to do during the day such a productive night.. Then came the problem I have to change of hotels because I have to post about the next hotel I’m going to stay in Chicago. So I couldn’t sleep and had to pack  my luggage again but it was ok I am in the habit of  this kind of situation. Then I stopped for lunch and luckily it was a urban French style restaurant called Troquet River North. After eating I was dead tired and I have to stay awake because I have dinner tonight. During these few hours of waiting during my checkout of my previous hotel and check in of the next hotel I take the opportunity to write this post.

I love Chicago this is the second time I’ve been visiting this city and every time I always have good time here. I also love the States. Every year I always try to spend time in the States so I take the opportunity to visit different cities of this country. Since I arrived in Chicago I’ve been completely jetlagged. I wake up at 3 in the morning as though I slept for 8 hours and it was already in the morning. I’m still in European time. Strangely I don’t have this feeling when I travel to Asia. It’s the same for food this morning I woke up at 6 in the morning I was so hungry. Luckily I bought donuts from Dunkin Donuts the day before. After that it wasn’t enough so around 9 in the morning I ate a McDonals. I live completely shifted and in the States everyone knows how easy it is to find food at any time of the day. I thank you for all your tips about jetlag you sent me on Instagram and honestly for me the best solution was to sleep. After watching 5 episodes of the Good Place on Netflix I fell asleep like a baby. The perfect Sunday. Then I had lunch at an Italian restaurant downtown one of the oldest Italo Americano restaurants it was delicious.
