Live, from the Netherlands: the Amsterdam diaries! Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday I’ll update you on my latest adventures. I warn you: they will either make you jealous or bore you to death. Whatever they do, you’ll know what I’m up to ;-) So, let’s begin, shall we?

My first day at Marie Claire was really hectic. I received truckloads of emails, responded to the most important ones and then I finally wrote a piece for tomorrow. I’m planning on making my own calendar and leaving my mark on the MC website. It’s kind of what I need to do so that’s kind of big, don’t you think? Plus, I get to work with WordPress which is awesome! My blog runs on it as well so I know my way around it. As you can see in the third picture, I made a piece about sportswear, which will be online tomorrow, yaaay.

Oh yes, I was wearing clothes today. Even though my boyfriend and dad thought I’d packed way too many, I really haven’t. I mean, even if I did, I’m doing my internship at a fashion magazine… I need those clothes! Today, I opted for my sister’s comfy Monki pants with my Zara leopard booties, my khaki T by Alexander Wang and my mom’s vintage blazer. Riding on a bike was also something I did today. I think the Dutchies noticed that I’m the clumsy type when it comes to bikes but I’ll be a pro when I leave here, mark my words!

As for food, I ate some soup with my sandswiches at work and in the afternoon we received these delicious little Kiehl’s cupcakes from our beauty editor Maroesja. I was suprised because they’re were insanely good (not a real cupcake lover speaking now). Preparing dinner – read: putting it in the microwave – was actually the biggest adventure of today. I’m going to spare you the details and just say: it was good after all.

That’s it for today folks, see you on Thursday ^^ And meanwhile: check out my Instagram for more updates!

      Ik weet het niet zeker of ze Russisch is. Ze praat alleszins normaal Nederlands hoor :D En ze is heel lief! Thanks Sab <3

    Well, her name sure is . En je en ik praten ook wel normaal Nederlands :p

      Oh ja, dat was niet stout bedoeld hoor :D Ik bedoelde maar dat ik het ├ęcht niet kan afleiden of ze Russisch is of niet. Maroesja klonk wel lekker Hollands eigenlijk :D
