Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch

Last week I stayed at The Courthouse hotel Shoreditch for London Fashion Week, this hotel is located in East London. Let me start by telling you some history about the hotel. The Courthouse hotel Shoreditch is set in a Grade II Baroque building that used to be the Old Street Magistrates Court and Police Station. It has held some high cases such as the London mobsters, the Kray Twins who stood trial for ”demanding money through menaces”. Then the police station held the author Eric Arthur Blair who was also known as George Orwell of ”1984” and the well known book and movie ”Animal Farm”.

The hotel has a 196-seat cinema, an indoor swimming pool including a spa. It also has a two-lane bowling alley which is great for private hire and events.

Old street station is just a 8 minute walk from The Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch.

The Rooms  

The rooms in the hotel are lovely and spacious. Some rooms have a view of Old Street, Shoreditch. Other rooms have a lounge area with an extra television. Bathrooms have great lighting and include a makeup mirror. All facilities are available when needed for a long stay in the bedroom.

The Breakfast

Breakfast was delicious with a choice of hot and cold buffet. Staff were incredibly friendly and couldn’t be more helpful.  If there was anything else you wished for they would do there best to provide it.

Bowling room

The bowling room which has a two-lane bowling alley as I explained in the introduction is available for private hire and events.

Upper 5th Shoreditch 

Upper 5th is the rooftop bar at the hotel and has amazing views over Shoreditch & East London. It has a lovely outdoor bar with great seating and a super cool swing decorated with flowers which is great for a Instagram worthy photo. The rooftop bar is amazing for for those sunset moments.

Jailhouse bar 

The Jailhouse bar is located on the ground floor next to reception. This is one of the most unusual bars I have ever experienced. You can sit in the main bar or chill out in one of the cells, all original including the cell doors.

After 12 pm everyday they serve Afternoon tea Shoreditch style.

Good Morning,

Haven’t used my blog in ages but back for now with hopefully some new upcoming posts. For today’s post I will be talking about the Bluxbox which I have recently tried. Let me first explain a little more about it.

I have been sent a box to test and was very happy with the outcome and with the products that were inside the box. Each month you can order a box with different products and brands inside of your beauty box.

ROMWE USA HOODIE ♡

I received this lovely USA hoodie, which is pretty comfortable for when you go skiing and want to wear it over your t-shirt and keeps you pretty warm. It is also very nice and bright and colourful if you don’t want to be lost along the mountains. This is also very nice to wear around the city. Also it’s very different to what I usually wear but thought this was great and to take a risk in wearing something different to stand out.

Romwe outfit ♡

Sadly this outfit I absolutely love did not arrive on time for my trip to Lanzarote where it’s still 25 – 27 degrees and still feels like summer. To still show you and give you an idea of how this outfit looks I went out for a quick shooting. I will definitely wear it in spring and summer next year 2018. But because now in Amsterdam it’s 10 degrees and below so I would look a bit odd if I wore this around the city. If you live in a country or a part of the world where it’s still summer or has different climate changes like Australia then you should definitely wear an outfit like this.

Desenio Poster

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

I couldn’t be more happier with these posters from @Desenio, I absolutely love them. I have always looked for posters and frames from Desenio like these to hang up on my bedroom wall. Also I cannot believe how nice it looks with my blue bedroom wall with all the white and black matching my bed and the rest of my bedroom. I choose a lot of black and white because I find that it matches almost every colour together.

If you would like the same posters I have they are called.

  • Travel the world poster
  • Prada Poster
  • Amsterdam poster
  • Eiffel tower poster

For the frames I went for the white ones.

Do you like these posters as much as I do? Well I can tell you that ”The code ”FEMKE” gives 25% off posters, between 31st-2nd (OCT-NOV) *Follow @desenio for more inspiration on Instagram *The code is not valid on handpicked-/collaboration posters or frames”.

Lash Paradise Mascara experience.

IMG_0376IMG_0383IMG_0413

The last few days I have been using the Lash Paradise Mascara which is a new mascara and hype from America that I have recently seen. It now has been brought out into The Netherlands cosmetics stores. I was one of the people which was able to test it first and guess whatt? I absolutely love it. This makes my lashes not clumpy and my lashes not to cross over. It makes them so perfect and how I want them to look. I am really glad to be able to use this into my daily make up routine. I have always struggled to try and get my eyelashes not to cross and now I have finally found something that helps it to stop. Also the benefit of this is that my lashes look more thinner and not as thick of course it makes them long to. If you want the natural long and thin looking lashes then this is definitely a product for you!

OOTD – 4th September 2017

On Monday 4th September 2017, I went strolling through Amsterdam like every other day and I just love seeing colourful flowers and the bridges over canals. But on this day it felt more like autumn with a temperature of 23 degrees with sun and cloud. I loved my outfit for today and loved the dungaree dress. It’s really nice to combine it with a white top underneath or like I did a white bandeau when it’s warm. I am definitely going to wear it more often and on my city trips away. LOVE ITT!!

Fuji Green Tea

IMG_0326.JPG

The past 2 days I have been using a new product called ”Fuji Green Tea” cleansing hair scrub from @thebodyshop. I normally never use a hair scrub and this was my first time using a hair scrub. I must say it smells and feels amazing when using it. The product contains Japanese Green Tea, mint, salt-crystals and honey. Also it is 100% veggie and doesn’t contain silicones.

What my experience was when using the hair scrub. It made my scalp look much cleaner and healthier looking from using all hair styling products and hairsprays. Also in the mornings my hair felt much smoother and softer. It really helps getting rid of dust, smoke and sweat. Especially after the last 2 hot days my hair was very sweaty and it really helped making my hair looking more fresh. Also on windy days my hair gets a lot of dust and dirt but after experiencing this. I would definitely start using this hair scrub into my haircare routine.

How to use the product: 

  1. Before the first use stir well. 
  2. With a teaspoon mix the hair scrub and place the scrub together with water onto your hands. 
  3. Massage the hair scrub on your scalp 
  4. Rinse thoroughly afterwards
  5. Start seeing the results.
