Djemaa el Fna Rotterdam + meeting Healthy Sisters


Hey Everyone,

Today I went to the Djemaa el Fna Moroccan foodfestival/market in Rotterdam! I've been wanting to visit this place for a long time now, but as it is only three days a year, I somehow always miss it! But I finally got to visit it with my family!

There were all kinds of little stalls with cute stuff to buy! One of the first stalls I saw was from the blogger Yusra from Moroccan musthaves, really nice blogger and she has an amazing Insta feed! She was selling these cute cotton bags and other kinds of bags and stuff from Morocco. I didn't buy something, but I will definitely buy something from the site soon!







I bought these cute sunnies on sunglasses stall for 10 euros!


Henna
Also found my aunt Love Henna by Farah putting beautiful Henna on peoples hands!


Camelsss! I didn't expect there to be camels, but I absolutely loved them!







Food 
There was so much variation in food here, from Moroccan pastry's and Atay to Bara's and fresh smoothies!










This smoothie was so good! A bit on the expensive side though, but it was really fresh, with Mango's and advacado's, specially delicious on a hot day like this (I guessed what was in it while drinking, because I didn't ask what was exactly in it)..













Atay:)









Healthy Sisters!


I really love the Recipes and vlogs of the Healthy Sisters  Rachida and Najima! These Moroccan women have so many delicious and healthy recipes on their Youtube channel! So I had a little conversation with them, they are so down to earth and funny! They loved my henna on my hand, and also wanted me to put henna on their hands... but unfortunately I didn't bring any henna with me, which I was almost taking with me, but didn't at last..:(  But I said I'd love to do their henna someday, so they said I can maybe put henna on Najima's wedding or something:) So I said Insha Allah sometime I'll do their henna! I told them my aunt was doing henna here, and they knew who she was:) However, I'd love to see them again, and wish them all the best for their Youtube channel and blog! Btw, on this picture they're giving a tutorial on how to make Moroccan Coconut cookies!









So I really enjoyed the Moroccan Food festival! I will definitely visit the festival again next year!
Did you vistit the Djemaa el Fna of are you planning on visiting it tomorrow or next year? Let me know!

Love,

Hey Girls, Monchoutaart is heerlijk met thee. Het is leuk om zelf te maken, en lekker bij een high tea. Of als er gewoon bezoek is. Een van mijn lievelings dessert is monchoutaart, ik heb het recept van mijn tante geleerd. Ik wil het graag met jullie delen. Geniet ervan!

Why I love shopping in The Hague City Center!

Hey Everyone, The Hague is a special city for me, not only cause it's my home town, but because of the amazing shopping opportunity. The main The Hague center is just the best place to wander of in the beautiful shopping streets of the Hague. From big shops as Zara, H&M and Marks & Spencers to cute little coffee and tea shops! There is this good, at home feeling vibe there, where I'm sure of, that even if you're not from here, you'll feel at home there, not just because of the amazing choices of shopping and food places, but also the friendly shop workers, who are always willing to help you and make you feel comfortable. What I always say is that the The Hague City Center is my second home, because I feel so comfortable and happy when I'm there! My great memories of the center: Since I was like 6 or something my grandma and I visited the center and bougth a lot of amazing stuff, but our tradition was to always buy some Bram Ladash Fries! We still do

Chowmahalla palace l Hyderabad-India

Hey Everyone,  I just got back from India, and I must say this was the best India trip I ever went to! It's not only the shopping I love about India, (what most of my family & friends think..), it's much more than that! One of the best places I went is definitely the Chowmahalla palace! It's indescribably peaceful there, the only thing you hear is the wind blowing, birds and the water fountain, and of course some visitors:). That's probably one of my most favorite things about this place, for example outside the walls of the palace you hear cars, a lot of people and stuff, like it's so busy on the streets, but as soon as you enter the palace territory it's just you, the palace and the sounds of nature! And Oh my god, the details of the palace, like everything is so beautifully designed. Just beautiful!! Another great thing about this place is, that it has so much information about the history of the king, the palace and just Indian culture all togethe
