Sending your boyfriend or girlfriend a selfie picture is already fun, but it just got a little more fun. If you are a Microsoft Kinect user, you can now scan your body with the motion capture device and order a 3D-printed miniature model of yourself.

STACH

I was really curious as to the new shop that would come into the building across from my flat, even more so because it took them months to renovate the place. And I was pleasantly surprised when one afternoon I looked inside, and it turned out my new neighbour was STACH, a small but great food shop. They sell tasty sandwiches, organic bread, many choices for a healthy dinner, salads, soup and pastries.

I was really disappointed when one of my favourite bars, Canvas, closed its doors  to be renovated. Canvas has the best rooftop in town. Many hot summer nights were spent here with tasty cocktails – not to mention one really good looking bartender.

I’ve always been a big fan of simple Scandinavian designs. Clothes or furniture, it doesn’t matter, I love it! I recently became aware of Danish furniture brand Hay and I’m really excited they’ve opened a shop in Amsterdam.

The Tasty Festival

In Amsterdam, you don’t get a lot of options when it comes to doing your groceries. Albert Heijn supermarkets basically rule the city centre and we have a couple of street food markets, but they always seem to have vanished by the time I get off work. Once a month though, this food-lovers heart makes a little jump when the Neighbour Food Market is in town and takes over the Westergas terrain.

Every year, electronic music lovers party for a week straight when it’s time for Amsterdam Dance Event.

For Amsterdam Dance Event 2013, one of Amsterdams best known – and my absolute favourite – clubs, Trouw, collaborated with the Amsterdam Concertbuilding and brought Henrik Schwarz in to play. Henrik Schwarz is known to many as one of the big names with Berlin based label Innervisions. Read More

You know that feeling when you’re hungover and in the mood for a great amount of food, and there is only one place you want to go to? For me this place is without doubt Broodje Bert. A tiny but legendary sandwich shop overlooking the Amsterdam canals. A true gem.

Is The Sky The Limit?

You and Newton will be surprised with how well your plants will do upside down. I have been seeing more and more shops and restaurants in Amsterdam with plants, hanging upside down from the ceiling. Although it looks cool, I always assumed they would last a week, and then run out of water and die or something. But then I stumbled across this sky planter by Central Saint Martins graduate Patrick Morris and it turns out it’s not so hard.

Definitely An Arty Tattoo

Okay I’ll admit it. I like tattoos. There’s just one problem, they don’t come off in the shower. Or when they do, they usually come in the shape of a cartoon and you buy them with a package of children’s gum. So you can imagine I was really happy when I went to my favourite design shop and I found this beautiful stick-on tattoo, inspired by a flower painting in the collection called ‘Still life with flowers and glass vase’ by Jan Davidszn.
