Today I want to introduce you to Hutspot, a concept store based in Amsterdam. Hutspot founded by three youngsters who search for new and interesting brands, designers and artist to offering their the chance to expose their products in the shop. Hutspot offers a lot! From clothing to accessories, from furnitures to shoes, from books to bikes and etc… It’s probably one of my favorite concept store I’ve ever been to. I like the fact that they offer opportunities to young and new designers to sell/showcase their products. And they are open to new approaches.
The atmosphere is very laid-back, chill and cozy. Every time I visit Hutspot I get so enthusiast because of all the lovely stuff they have.
Aside from the shopping area, there is also a cafe/restaurant upstairs where you can chill and relax.
And of course… I couldn’t resist leaving the store with empty hands. So here a little sneak peek. :)

It’s manicure time! :) I went for a white pinky color today. The color! Love it! (this is my second bottle, oops) The nail polish itself… I’m not a fan of. The consistency is OK, but it takes forever to dry. Since I’m not that patient and I move around a lot, this nail polish and I aren’t a great combo.. So when I use this Fiji nail polish by Essie, I will always use a quick dry nail polish on top. Currently I’m using the Insta-Dri from Sally Hansen.
Since the temperature in the Netherlands is going down, sweaters are a must now. I choose for a grey chunky knitted sweater to work with. For a more layered look, I paired it with a white button up shirt. Distressed jeans and white Converse to keep it casual.
jeans: American Eagle
wallet: DKNY (used as a clutch)
Todays blogpost I’ll be talking about something that inspirers me very much. You probably would think, aahh… it’s food. No, not that. Well maybe yes.. kinda. But food isn’t exact the thing I mean. It’s the way how, for example Julie did over here, looking at things with another perspective. So you can open up your mind and be creative, doing things you normally wouldn’t do. The way Julie look at food, inspirers me a lot, it triggers me to be creative.
Julie is a real food-lover who loves delicious and beautiful things. She started making food collage on Instagram to showcase seasonal and local offerings from her neighborhood farmers markets. It became a continuos project where she explores the color theory, plant design and her real food-love. The way she plays with food is so unique and playful. I can look at it al day long.
