Hi Everyone!

How are you guys doing?
I ate lunch today with my lovely friends Annika and Anique at a lunchcafé called ‘ Singel 404’ in Amsterdam. It was delicious and so healthy! They serve all homemade things and good quality food. I suggest you guys go to Singel 404. The streetname is the same as the name of the lunchcafé.

Love,
Karin

Last week my mother came over to Amsterdam for a ‘mum and daughter’ day. We went out for lunch at Palladium. Palladium is a very trendy lunchbar/bistro in the area Leidseplein.
I had a salmon sandwhich and my mother a tomato soup with basil. The lunch is good and the price is okay.
Definetely go to Palladium for some lunch. Very fresh and healthy indeed!

On wednesday I went to the Amsterdam Fashionweek with a friend of mine. We saw a Fashion theatre show from new, young designers. It was really interesting but a bit short.
It was for me the first time to go on a event such like these. I had no idea what to wear and that is a crucial thing, especially when you are going to a fashion event.
Well, this is what I wore and hopefully I can go to events like this more often.

I Found Jennifer Lawrence’s Cell Phone In A Cab

This is one of the most funniest short stories I’ve ever read. It is so sweet and I could imagine Jennifer Lawrence doing and saying these stuffs 🙂 Go and read it!

Thought Catalog

“This will be my exercise for the day,” I thought as I left the bar, planning to walk home.

Like most winter nights in New York City, I was in a cab a minute later. I hop in and land on something blocky. It feels like a seat belt. I don’t wear seat belts in cabs, but didn’t want to sit on it for the entirety of the ride. I reach under me and feel familiar plastic: an iPhone case.

I yell up to the cab driver. “Hey, someone left a phone back here.” He mumbles something into his bluetooth headset, ignoring me.

I tap the home button and the screen lights up. It’s locked. Glowing behind the keypad is a picture of a dog. White with brown ears. A basset hound, I think.

It’s the new iPhone with the fingerprint reader, which I heard were faulty. I press down…

This year I made a deal with myself. I wanna eat more healthier. I already did, but I want to eat more cleaner and hopefully get a leaner body.
It really is cliché what I am saying, but I think every year should be a new start of new things and new failures 🙂

I recently found this recipe on the internet on how to make overnight oats. Oats are very healthy. They are good for your digestion and skin, plus, they are cheap.
I usually eat muesli for breakfast with skim milk but changed it up to oats with soy milk for many reasons. It’s healthier, you can add your own favorite food to it and it is cheaper.
Soy milk is also a very very healthy product. It is actually better than skim milk or any type of milk.
Soy milk doesn’t maintain lactose or any fat.

How I make it:

– First find a bowl and put some oats in it.
– Pour some (soy)milk into the bowl and stir it up with the oats.
– To add some flavour, I added some cinnamon which reminds me of Christmas and Apple pie 🙂
– Than, to make the oats much healthier I put in a banana and some almond.
Et voilá!

On my Instagram a post a video on how I make my overnight oats. Go check that out!

My favorite Youtubers!

Hi Everyone!

Nowadays everyone knows what Youtube is. For the ones who doesn’t, here is a short history and explanation about Youtube: Youtube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005 and owned by Google since late 2006 on which users can upload, view and share videos.
The company is based in San Bruno, California, and uses Adobe Flash and HTML 5 technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including video clips, TV clips, and music videos and amateur content such as video blogging short original videos, and educational videos.

Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC,VEVO, Hulu and other organizations offer some of their material via YouTube, as part of the YouTube partnership program.Unregistered users can watch videos, and registered users can upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old. YouTube, LLC was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion in November 2006 and now operates as a Google subsidiary.
( Now you guys became smarter 😛 )

Youtube is amazing! It’s like your own personal “TV” where you can play your favorite songs and don’t have to listen to that one particular song you don’t like. Or watch that funny clip over and over again, or that interview with your favorite actor/singer.
I think Youtube is amazing! Personally, I think Youtube is better and much more fun than TV or Radio. For example: you post one video on the internet, ( it’s a funny one or a video where you can show your talents), it becomes very popular in no time!

I always loved Youtube. About a few years ago I discovered that Youtube is not only about music videos. There are so many videos on Youtube and several people became famous because of Youtube. Think about Justin Bieber and Esmee Denters who are now succesful singers.
Not only musicians became famous with the help of Youtube, also make up artist Michelle Phan. All these people just uploaded a video on Youtube and became famous.

I follow a lot of people on Youtube. I like they vlogs, the videos they are making and them as a person. Well, I’ve never met them before, ( only one of them, Joe Sugg. He is so cute! ) but it’s like I know them, because they share so much with us ( the audience/fans ).

I hope I can go to Vidcon or Summer at the City to meet all my favorite Youtubers. 🙂

Down here is a list of my favorite Youtubers that I adore 🙂

My favorite Youtubers:

Anne Frank house

Hi Everyone!

Today I went to the ‘Anne Frank museum’ in Amsterdam with a friend of mine.
I hadn’t any expectations of the museum or on what I would see.

Anne Frank was a Jewish girl who lived in Amsterdam. During World War Two she and her family suffered in one of the camps: Bergen, Belsen

Anne and her family hide for 2 years in a house behind a office in Amsterdam. It was very tragic. Now, the house is a museum.
After seeing the museum, it has a big impact on me. I must say, Anne Frank was a real brave girl, who is very smart! She gave us an inside in her story.

The museum is definetely worth seeing if you are visiting Amsterdam.

Love of my life!

20131008-181247.jpg

Today I met the love of my life: Joe Sugg.

He was in Amsterdam for the weekend and he had a meet&greet at the Dam square. He was absolutely lovely and nice. And of course, good looking 🙂 he was really small. Didn’t expect that at all! I thought he would be at least taller than me, but we have the same height 🙂
The meet&greet was crowded! So much people wanted to see him and his friend Chai.
The meeting was at 4 pm and I waited for an half hour to meet him. I met so many lovely people who are also fan of Joe Sugg. So funny to meet the people who like the same stuff as you do. Never had that before.

In the picture you see me and Joe with the same watch.

I think I’m in love. ❤

The end.
