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,

The internet is such a strange world, and it is in fact its own world - so far from reality yet so close, it redefines society conceptually to be honest. The internet can bring such wonderful things into the world: the announcement of a new baby, an endless supply of fashion inspiration, the top news at the fastest rate, and so many amazing memories and conversations can be shared between the beautiful people on this planet. The internet is an extraordinary place, and even more so as someone who has grown up in this time of technology. I bloody love the internet and all it brings to the world, I honestly think the internet is such a great platform for humanity to connect, share and create.
However, I have been wondering my mind recently, quite intently, and have found myself shying away from the internet, and social media platforms. Despite the fact I have no huge following…

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a blog post, so the format of this post might be a bit 'up in the air'. Therefore, before I delve into things, here's a quick disclaimer... On the 26th December, I uploaded a blog post surrounding the topic of social media, and the influence I feel it has on the mental health of its users. Since then, I have been absent from this blog, and largely absent from social media in general, because I feel as though I've had nothing worth saying recently. I would much rather only upload when I am bringing a little something useful to the internet that even if only one person found it interesting, it would at least have a purpose.
 This leads swiftly on to the subject of this post. Student life, and the truth about how it feels to experience daily life as a young adult, studying at University. I promise to not sugar coat the finer details, and to accurately portray the common notions of being a student. Shall we…
