For our last minute Christmas Shopping, We managed to escape the end of the year “get everything done at the office” mantra by going away for a weekend to the southern side of the Netherlands. We Choose for Maastricht as it is a relaxed, chill city, a mix between modern and old historical buildings and small corridors with its beautiful bridges. It’s on the border of Belgium and Germany so it shares a very diverse atmosphere from its shops, Cafés to the people and attitude. A very Burgundian Lifestyle.. I will give you ideas about what to do and the trendy spots that we always visit while in Maastricht.
One of my favourite things to do in Maastricht City is to walk around its small streets ,specially in the stoksstraat, leading to the small boutiques that hold the most exclusive stuff from clothes , shoes to accessorise. You are lucky enough to get unique finds and handmade goodies.
FF – Fur and Fashion
I was over the moon to discover this Little but amazing Boutique. Every piece is very unique in its own design. We had a really good time choosing stuff and gifts.The shop stands for 50 year of handmade clothes and accessoires.
As Iam expecting my second baby soon , I spent some productive time Choosing items for the new addition to the family!
Did some damage at Max Mara. I can say I really enjoyed my experience with the customer service. I could feel the material and make outfit Choices without being forced or bothered. They had a 30% off the new collection. I had the opportunity to grab some classic outfits for my office work as I have to be super formal most of the days. I went for Blue formal trousers and Blue-ish & Grey mixed wool dresses. Can’t wait to style them and post it for you. They have also a Max Mara outlet next to the main shop that contains the collection from the last season. Which is a bonus!
Shopping for Him
One of the most exclusive Shops for men. You can find modern and cool items for him. No need to search for other places. All in one indeed! From shirts ,shoes ,fragrances to mens Accessoires. Ticks for all the men names in the list of our Christmas shopping !
I could never get enough of shopping but since getting heavier and having Baby Alex with me it was time to have a walk through the bridge and search for the best dinner place.
Surprisingly the weather was warm. It did not feel as December at all. No complaints. I was wearing a waistcoat from Zara,Mama jeans from H&M, a fur Shawl, Dior Fusion Sneaker and Chanel tote bag with a furry bag charm that I purchased from the Fur and Fashion Shop. Super Comfortable and chic choice. All in black for a reason. To hide the Pregnancy weight!
It is nice to experiment new restaurants. Our heart goes always for Il Giardino though. People queue outside under the rain to get the chance of a table. The atmosphere is joyful with Italian speaking staff , singing ,talking. The food is delicious each time we eat there and we love it how they are familiar with the faces of their clients that visit them once in while. Very friendly sfeer specially if you are going there to have dinner with a toddler.
