A lovely weekend with friends (Part II)

New in town and there for just six months, is Felix &Foam, a temporary cooperation between Foam, Frame and restaurant Foyer located in the monumental building Felix Meritis in Amsterdam. You can find there exhibitions, films, events, cool shops and a restaurant. So when in Amsterdam, make sure to check it out!

Shirt alert // A lovely weekend with friends

Our friends Lasse & Shino from Berlin came over for the weekend again. We had the best time. There were cool shirts involved (see below) and there was more. I will show/tell more about it later.
p.s. this picture was taken in Goede Vrijdag, the cutest little coffee bar in Utrecht, opened not so long ago in a little bridge keeper's house... (exciting, no? And guess what, it's only a minute walk from my house! :-)))))
p.p.s. Shino is wearing Marimekko, Lasse Issey Miyake.

A little food intermezzo

Because you didn't think I could be in Basque country without trying some local sweets, right? If you're in San Sebastián and in for something sweet, go to Otaegui, supposedly the best pastelaria in town, and order yourself a coffee eclair (not pictured) - ok I know, not particularly Spanish, but I promise it will be goood :)

The apartment

We just returned from a relaxing week in Basque Country, Spain. The idea was to drive from Bilbao all the way to Biarritz in France, but we didn't get further than Bilbao, San Sebastián and some villages in between (saving supposedly lovely Biarritz for next time). One of the highlights of our little trip was our apartment in San Sebastián (long live Airbnb!). It was in an old farm that had been in the owner's family for a century and had been completely renovated a couple of years ago. The result was quite impressive - everything inside the building is new but has been designed with respect for the traditional Basque building style. Then there were that breath-taking view of San Sebastián's bay and friendly owner Josu. Just perfect!
