As a fashion blogger you can probably figure out that shopping belongs to my favorite activities. I’ve been loving my shopping sprees here in the US, all the big malls have airco, awesome food places and make me even more excited about the experience. Being honest, I personally don’t really like to go shopping in my hometown Amsterdam. The Kalverstraat is always way too crowded for my taste and you know about us Dutchies, we have to deal with rain way too often. That’s why I thought sharing is caring and so I decided that today I wanted to tell you my shopping secret.
Whenever I feel like going shopping and really want to make a fun day out of it I go to ‘Stadshart Amstelveen’ which is the mall in Amstelveen, located about 15 minutes away from Amsterdam. Imagine going to ZARA and them actually having your size, even better, being in a clean and organized ZARA, yup it’s possible there! A couple of other reasons for me to go is that there is a Le Pain Quotidien (I am obsessive over their avocado toast and fresh lemonade) there is a Starbucks (I don’t care too much for all the hipster coffee places, nothing I love more than a good old Soya Cappuchino), go to my favorite luxury store, de Bijenkorf and I always, always make sure to stop at MANGO and of course KIKO to buy an endless amount of make up. Another exciting fact is that one of my favorite Dutch stores, Scotch & Soda is opening soon!
Another thing I must not forget to tell you is that if you sign up to be a cardholder of the mall you can book a free (yup!) shopping session with a personal shopper!
Enough reasons for me to go, I’m already excited for my next trip! As a surprise to you, Stadshart Amstelveen and me partnered to give away 250 euro’s worth of shopping money to one of you!
