Hello Fashionistas, I spent Valentine's Day weekend in Amsterdam and it was amazing. Honestly, if I had to choose a city to describe my style identity, it would be Amsterdam.
Fashion in the Netherlands is intriguing, as people cycle everywhere, their bikes become an integral component to their personal style. Subsequently, you can spot fashionistas wearing all black on a hot pink bike, wearing an orange tuque and electric blue gloves. It's such a cool experience, just sitting back and watching all the artsy cyclists zip by and wait at the dock to board on the boat, perhaps going to work or just meeting with friends. That's everyday life in Amsterdam! If I lived there, I would definitely get a flaming hot pink bike with a papaya print all over it, just so I could easily spot my bike among all the others.
One more thing, vintage shopping is also reasonably priced, unlike shops in Paris and London. I spotted amazing turquoise leather gloves for only a whopping 10 euros! How awesome is that? My favorite shop was Laura Dols located among the "9 straatjes", the eccentric shopping hub of Amsterdam.

Vintage shopping at the Waterloopleinmarkt, rummaging through the endless amount of treasures.
We stayed at the Mandela Huisje, which is a glass house commemorating the iconic Nelson Mandela, it is founded on love, respect & unity. I definitely recommend booking this haven for your next getaway in Amsterdam, after your stay in the Mandela house, a tree is planted in Indonesia with your name on it.

I could not leave Amsterdam without trying this tasty deutsche delicacy named "Poffertjes" at Pancakes Amsterdam.
Looking for a cool cocktail spot? You must stop by Sky Lounge, try the Skull cocktail.
