SHOPPING IN COLOGNE



I went to Germany for one day with my boyfriend, his brother and a ballet friend of mine Rianne. While the boys where hanging out at a sports fair, Rianne and I took the train to the center of Cologne to do some shopping!

When you walk out of the central train station you cannot mis the huge cathedral. It is right in front of the station. Of course we had to take a picture of it. Behind the cathedral are all of the shops. I love Cologne, it has lots of shopping streets.

Shopping with Rianne was lovely! I picked up some really cool items including the daisy top that was on my wish list and a really cute bag. You will be able to see the items I bought in an outfit post very soon.

I really recommend visiting Cologne. Our trip to Cologne definitely was so much fun and I will go back there for sure!

STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE


It is spring and that asks for some fresh, light and healthy food. I can not describe how delicious this strawberry cheesecake is. I have made this a lot of times before and I still love it. This time I made it again with my boyfriend and guess what you can make this yourself as well! Just follow the steps and make your very own strawberry cheesecake. I bet you will love it!







Ingredients
- Country Cookies (250 gram)
- Dairy butter (75 gram)
- 6 sheets of gelatin
- Whipped cream (2,5 dl)
- Quark (5 dl)
- Sugar (200 gram)
- Strawberries

Materials
- Springform
- Baking paper

Before we start
Take a springform and cover it with baking paper. You can use butter to stick the paper to the sides of the springform.

For the bottom
1. Crumble the country cookies, you can use a rollin pin for this or just a knife.
2. Melt the butter in a pan.
3. Stir the cookie crumbs through the butter.
4. Stroke the cookie mixture all over the bottom of the springform until it looks nice and smooth. You can use the back of a spoon to press it down.

For the filling
1. Wash the strawberries and cut them in pieces.
2. Weak the sheets of gelatin in cold water for about five minutes.
3. Heat the whipped cream together with the sugar until it almost cooks. Then get it off the fire.
4. Squeeze out the gelatin and stir it through the whipped cream until the mixture looks smooth.
5. When it starts to bind get the quark and stir it through the mixture until it looks smooth again.
6. Poor the mixture over the back of a spoon inside the springform.
7. Sprinkle the strawberry pieces in the springform.
8. Cover the springform with cling film and put it in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
9. Then it is time to get that strawberry cheesecake out of your fridge and present it on a nice plate.

That is all you have to do to create this amazing strawberry cheesecake!  I really hope you will love this recipe as much as I do!

MY NEW HOME

I don't live with my parents, sisters, rabbits and cat anymore. I recently got my first own studio and I love it! I moved to Haarlem, a city near Amsterdam. Haarlem is known as the best shopping city in the Netherlands. I love shopping so I think we have got a match right here. If you are ever near Haarlem you should definitely come and say hi!

Today I'll to give you a sneak peak of what my new room looks like. I personally really like the way it turned out. It definitely feels like home to me. I am still not done decorating. I am actually looking for some nice pastel pillows for on my bed. It think that will bring the spring feel into my room. Unfortunately I have not THE pillowcases yet but I will keep on hunting!

For the ones who are wondering.. most of the furniture is form IKEA or LifeStyle. If you have any questions about my room decor, please let me know in the comments!

BONJOUR PARIS


My boyfriend Duco and I went to Paris! Even though it was just for a day, I have to say I loved it!
It was kind of a spontaneous action. I had the chance to buy two tickets from a girl who suddenly was not able to make the trip. To me Paris is always a good idea, so three days later Duco and I were in Paris, the city of love.

In the morning we arrived in Paris, we did some sightseeing. It was absolutely beautiful! I just love how elegant most buildings look. I can imagine myself living there, sitting on a balcony with the one I love. Drinking a delicious wine and fill my mouth with the taste of baguette, haha!

Near the eiffel tower we ate a craps with chocolate in front of a old school carousel. I actually really wanted to sit on one of the horses in the carousel, but Duco didn't let me.
We also did some shopping in Paris. I got a painting of Moulin Rouge, a pretty blouse and a pencil case. I also bought some other cute things.


In the evening we ate pizza in a local restaurant, not very french, but it was good. After dinner we went on a tour boat on the Seine. It was lovely!
I really want to go back there to do all the things that I could't do in a single day, because I love Paris!
