Accommodation review: Lloyd Hotel And Cultural Embassy Amsterdam


So I returned from my fun-filled trip to Amsterdam in the early hours of Friday morning, and to be honest, I've had a hard time recovering from the colossal amount of food I ate, the probable litres of prosecco I drank, and I surely must have been close to a ga-zillion steps through the 6 days I was wondering around the most beautiful city I have ever visited. As a second timer, I found Amsterdam even better than the first time, so if you are considering going to Amsterdam and you've been before so are hesitant, GO FOR IT! Similarly, if you've never been and are intrigued or you have stalked my Instagram recently, the temptation needs to be given in to - everything is Instagrammable ok! 

So I have numerous blog posts lined up around the subject of my visit to Amsterdam, and firstly I want to share with you my accommodation experience. 

Lloyd hotel and cultural embassy is located close by to a gorgeous river, but is equally only a 15 minute tram ride away from the city centre. So, you are blessed with beautiful views but also the city buzz that Amsterdam is known for.

The hotel itself is particularly focused on design and style, and it definitely verges on retro/ alternate. The multicoloured chairs coincide perfectly with the plastic trees in the cafeteria as well as the fold out bath rooms (that's right, they fold out)! Essentially, if you're looking for luxury and sophistication then this may not be the hotel for you, however, if you're into excellent quality but with an edgy, personal, acquire atmosphere, GO TO LLOYD HOTEL! Firstly, for the attentive staff and heavenly bedding the price is superb. Also, it's just so cool and I often found myself not wanting to leave the room! The service is excellent, and the facilities are equally fantastic. Here are a few shots of the room that myself and Callum stayed in - to add, Lloyd hotel have different floors for different types of room, with the sixth floor being the most luxury rooms with winding staircases, bedroom swings and pianos! Myself and Callum stayed on the third floor, and so we received a huge room with some super cool features such as the fold out bath room and funky lamps and ROOM SERVICE ...

Evidently, it is not to everyone's taste, but it was mine and I thought it was just so cool and original, so I definitely recommend room 320!!!!

The hotel is huge, and they have all kinds of features throughout, for instance this bench!

Also, as a communal area, there is a large cafeteria/ restaurant downstairs, where the food is to die for, and the fruit juices are SO DELICIOUS! This was also great if we were hungry but weren't appropriately dressed to pop over to the supermarket Jumbo across the road (that's right, pyjamas were thrown on at any opportunity).

So, I hope you've enjoyed my little natter about Lloyd hotel and cultural embassy, and I 110% recommend you check it out for yourselves. It's truly beautiful and situated in an ideal place. 

See you soon,

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

This week I thought I would go all guns blazing with a wintery blog post, as I have been desperately waiting to start wearing this gorgeous coat. Although, I'll be wearing from now until probably April before we see sunshine agai…

October 21st 2016. An evening of reflection.

So, picture this: A slightly sleep deprived student perched on the step of the backdoor, coffee to hand. The sweet sound of Nick Mulvey's album First Mind complimenting the silence of an empty house. A cold, crisp evening in midst October and a wandering mind. I decided to write this post as an expression of reflection and contentment, a diversion from the usual materialistic posts on fashion items and styling attempts.

I would firstly just like to apologise for not posting in a few weeks, but as you may or may not know, I have just began my university adventure and despite the fact I have only been here three weeks, I feel as though its already been a lifetime of experiences and lessons learned.

First day of uni
University has honestly been the most insane journey so far: the almost sleepless nights; extreme consumption of alcohol and trying to find my way around university and the town I now call home. I have enjoyed every hungover moment and I simply feel like I needed …

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…
