Fun in The Netherlands, visit Maastricht

Although Amsterdam is Holland’s beautiful capital it is so well worth to explore The Netherlands a little more. There is so much more to do and see. Plus, The Netherlands have a couple of cities that are perfect for shopping, dining and sightseeing. Hop on a train from Amsterdam and visit beautiful Maastricht.
Maastricht is the most southern city in The Netherlands and maybe one of the most vibrant cities in the country. Maastricht has a large student population, the most excellent restaurants in The Netherlands and some amazing shopping options. Since it takes around 2.5 to get to Maastricht from Amsterdam it is well worth staying overnight. Check out these 3 top things to do in Maastricht.

Visit the book shop in the church
Maastricht has the most beautiful bookshop in The Netherlands. Libris bookshop has been voted the most stunning bookshop in the world several times, and I think that this is very just so. The bookshop is set in an old Dominican church, dating back to 13th century. You can climb the steps high, higher, highest to browse all the books. But having a cup of coffee is also worth it. 

Shop til you drop
Maastricht is maybe (probably!) the best city in The Netherlands to go shopping. Maastricht was occupied by the French in the 18th century and that French style and class somehow lingered and can now be found in dozens and dozens of lovely boutiques. Check out the Jerker quarter for the best shopping options.

Fine dining
It’s almost impossible to have a bad meal in Maastricht. The people from Maastricht love living the good life and think that proper food and drink are very important. And who are we to disagree! There are some pretty swanky options in town, but I think the less expensive cafés and restaurants are just as good. ‘t Wycker Cabinet is perfect for lunch and drinks, and just across the street Zondag is never short of clientele. Some funkier options are found just a little outside the city centre: Brandweerkazerne (a large restaurant in an old fireman station) and Tapijn (a bar and restaurant in old army barracks).

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future.

Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Cum aleg lumanarile parfumate

 Buna frumoaselor, Astazi va vorbesc despre lumanarile mele parfumate preferate , Yankee Candle  . Fiind o amatoare de  lumanari parfumate , apropiatii stiu asta si de multe ori primesc si de la ei lumanari de la diverse branduri insa sincer va spun ca pana acum nici un brand nu m-a impresionat mai tare decat Yankee Candle. O fi din cauza mirosului persistent, a aromelor si formelor diverse pe care le au lumanarile lor sau poate le asociez eu cu amintiri frumoase pe care le am. Cand am musafiri, pe langa curatenie, gatit, mereu aprind si o lumanare cu o ora inainte sa ajunga, astfel incat prima impresie pe care o au cand intra in casa sa fie una placuta. Mereu am apreciat o casa cu un miros frumos. Sa stiti ca am observat de-a lungul anilor ca pana si casa/locuinta in care stai are un anumit miros, la fel si hainele. Si de multe ori cand simt un miros asemanator ma duce cu gandul la acele persoane.  Poate nu toti oamenii sunt asa dar eu sunt, fiind avida de parfumuri, mirosuri frumoase
