WEEK IN PICTURES #2 | DAY 13

Hi there lovely faces! I did a few fun things this week but I got a really nasty cold, so that’s a bit of a bummer. Oh well, let’s see what I’ve been up to!

On Sunday I went to the Sister Act Musical in Scheveningen. I live in the south of the Netherlands and Scheveningen is in the west, so it takes a while to get there. 

In the Netherlands we have a card similar to the Oyster card. It’s a card we use to travel with, super easy and practical! It also saves me quite a bit of money, and as I’m a student I get discount in the weekends (I don’t have to pay anything at all during the week because I’m a student too!).
It takes a while to get there, but there’s a lovely beach and lots of restaurants!
We – my mum, my brother and I – were starving, so we decided to eat at the Big Bell restaurant. I ordered the “Lady Schnitzel”, expecting it to be tiny, well… Imagine this 5,5ft girl with a massive schnitzel... Let’s just say I didn’t manage to finish it haha!
After lunch we had to go to the theatre. We had such good seats! The musical itself was a lot of fun to watch.
I thought this would be fun to show as well. Here in the Netherlands we have sparkling ice tea. In a bottle. I met some Michigan students last spring and they told me that it was very strange to them to be able to buy it in stores etc.!
This is what I wore to the musical.  Esprit Leather Jacket, Esprit Dress, I honestly have no clue where my boots or tights are from.

On Monday I went to my chum Tahnee and we went shopping and we had a pamper/movie evening later that day. We watched Tangled and the Little Mermaid 3, it was so much fun!

Boots from H&M, Jeans from Only.

I had to go to school on Tuesday, not so much going on. When I went home I really got the autumn feeling! It was sooo cold and there were fallen leaves everywhere!
I LOVE the necklace I bought on the little shopping spree on Monday! For my Dutchies: it’s from C&A.

Wednesday and Thursday are such a blurr… As I’ve told you, I got a really nasty cold and I can’t remember if I did something interesting those days. I don’t think I did as there aren’t many pictures haha. I did go to school and went to work both days. Thursday was the worst day of this week as my cold was so horrible I couldn’t fall asleep..

I did finish The Hunger Games on Wednesday! It is such a good book. I can’t wait for the second film!
My nail varnish lasted sooo incredibly long! This was taken on Thursday. The colour is OPI’s Every Month is Oktoberfest. It hadn’t chipped ONE BIT! It’s insane! My rings are from Forever21.
As I didn’t get much sleep I stayed in bed for almost the entire day on Friday. I had something really cool planned in the evening, so I just HAD to be feeling a bit better by then!
Finally took off my nail varnish. I’m testing Essie’s Millionails nail strengthener. So far so good! There’ll be a full review later on my blog.
So I had this cool thing planned in the evening. As you might know, I work at a supermarket, and we became 3rd in the competition of being the best C1000 (kind of supermarket) of the Netherlands! Our prize? We got to go to the Nick & Simon Concert. If you aren’t Dutch I don’t think you know them, but it was a fun experience.
We were VIP and got food and free drinks!

On Saturday I just slept in until 1 P.M. and watched some YouTube videos during the afternoon. I had to work in the evening so I didn’t take any pictures. However, I have found this video about a man planning a surprise wedding according to his girlfriend’s pinterest!
 Hope you had a wonderful week! <3

Lots of love,

Laurie
