Last year I went on G’s Brunch boat with some family and had a great time eating poached eggs & drinking cocktails while cruising the Amsterdam canals. So when I got an invite to come last Tuesday, of course I said yes.

The weather could have not been better either, so I just enjoyed a delicious bloody Mary and some pink lemonade while catching up with some friends. It is a really nice activity, especially if you are visiting Amsterdam.

The boat sails on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10:00, 12:00 & 14:00. You can check out their website to make a reservation.

On Wednesday I met some friends for cocktails at the Vault Bar at the Waldorf Astoria. Their menu consists of very unique cocktails. You can check more about it on this blog post.

If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably already seen a video I posted of going to the Febo factory and a gym photoshoot. I never got to explain properly what it was. Febo is very famous here for their snack bars and their Dutch croquettes. My friend Paultje, who is a health blogger and model coach from My Model Workout and Lavinia from Lavinia cooks organized the event. He wanted to make a point in having a good balance, that you can lead a healthy lifestyle without depriving yourself. Hence the fast food shots while working out. It was a really cool event and we all had so much fun. You can see the article he wrote plus all the pictures here. And you can check my video here.

Last Tuesday I attended a picnic at NEST, the new roof terrace of Hotel Casa 400. It was cold and rainy that afternoon but we made the best out of it. We got a tour of their edible garden and got a taste of their delicious menu. It has a great view of the city. So if weather permits, it is worth a visit!

In the evening, I went to the launch of the Food Network at the College Hotel. If you have Ziggo, you will be able to enjoy it starting in July. I miss those kinds of cooking shows I used to watch when I lived in the States. Maybe it’s time for me to change TV providers!

On Wednesday, I took over Broste Copenhagen’s Instagram account. It is a brand that offers many gorgeous items for the home. It is one of my favorite interior brands and I have been using their tableware for a while now.

On Thursday, I got up very early to get a tour of the Febo factory. We learned how the typical Dutch croquettes are made and how fresh all of their ingredients are. Later we had a guilty pleasures photo shoot with food from Febo as props (and our lunch). You can see the video underneath.

In the evening, I went to try the new menu of restaurant Anna in the red light district. It was such a delightful evening! You can see the whole review here.

The weekend was reserved to work on our new apartment, search for a floor and a bit of time for ourselves. We biked around the city for a bit since it was such a nice day (first picture).
