My Amsterdam photo diary

Welcome to the most photo heavy blog post of all time! This may even beat my New York photo diary, but I couldn't help myself during my stay in Amsterdam as there's a photo opportunity round every corner. So I thought I would share a few of my favourite photos, as well as give you a little round up of what I got up to. I love writing these sorts of posts as I find them so helpful, when I discover them myself, but it's also a nice way to look back on your holiday. 

Where I ate: 

Sotto Pizza, for a really delicious sour dough pizza and this is where I had a star shaped pizza! Interested? Then keep scrolling.... The Meets Eatery, this was the first place we visited after dropping our bags off at our hotel, CitizenM and I'm so pleased I found it. It's a wonderful little cafe serving lots of raw and vegetarian food, perfect for me! For dinner one evening we tried Bazar, an African & Middle Eastern restaurant, with a fun and lively vibe and huge menu! My favourite thing about this place, was the bright interior, the place was covered in lights and walls of colour! For breakfast and lunch try Bakers & Roasters, for a great veggie breakfast or Coffee & Coconuts (I loved it so much I did a whole blog post). 

Where I shopped: 

Unlike New York, I didn't come on this holiday with the intention of shopping, however one shop which I really feel is worth mentioning is Love Stories. Love Stories is a lingerie brand, which use the most amazing fabrics and basically aim to make you feel super sassy. I fell in love with numerous pieces in there, including a set of pink pyjama's, a 'Love Stories Hotel' dressing gown, and quite frankly every pair of knickers in there! I've included a couple of photos of inside the shop (images 10 & 11), however I do feel quite tempted to do a whole blog post dedicated to Love Stories. You can find the shop at Herengracht 296, 1016 BX, Amsterdam and online!

Where I went:

As soon as my boyfriend and I had agreed that we were going to Amsterdam, I knew that I had to visit the Anne Frank House. I was absolutely obsessed with the book when I was younger, and I'm sure like many other people it inspired me to write a diary. The house is incredible and very moving, at times you have to remind yourself that she actually lived there. We were able to book tickets before, and I would highly recommend that you do, the queues looked quite bonkers when we walked past it one day. They usually put tickets online 2 months in advance. We tried to pack as many things into our little trip as we could so as well as exploring the streets of Amsterdam we also went on the Canal boat tour, ate in De Pijp, shopped in 9 streets and saw a Banksy and Warhol exhibition at Moco Amsterdam.

  1. Oh I really want to visit Amsterdam too! It seems like such a great city, really on trend and modern but also quite peaceful. I'll keep in mind your advice about the Anne Frank house if I go there some day, it's always better to book in advance for famous places like that. This is a really helpful post and I loved your photos as well - it seems you had quite good weather! :)
