Thrill Grill Amsterdam

This is the last Amsterdam post and I would be sad if it weren’t for all of the other travel posts on the queue.

On our last day in Amsterdam, right a few hours before we took our flight back to London, we made sure we had a decent meal in a nice place, just like all of the other days in the city.

So that’s when I read about Thrill Grill and its Michelin-starred chef Robert Kranenborg who is known for his many experiments in the culinary field. The restaurant has an amazing wood-fire oven and the food was unquestionably one of my top 10 meals.

I must say the only thing I didn’t enjoy about the restaurant was how cold it was! They really need to get some heaters turned on, especially during these cold months in Amsterdam. I would definitely enjoy the meal even more if I was warmer.

We’ve ordered the classic beef thriller with gouda cheese and André went for the Steak and Fries, the best he has ever had, he said.

The food was so delicious we had to go and compliment the chef before leaving the restaurant.

And with this post I say goodbye to Amsterdam, hope to see you very soon but with warmer weather. Next time I’ll take the risk and hope on a bike. It’s a promise.

Italy in Amsterdam

I have a never ending obsession for Italian cuisine, so it doesn’t matter the country I visit, I tend to always end up trying at least one Italian restaurant. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Al contrario!

So on our first day in Amsterdam, we decided to have dinner at Piadina Bar and here’s our experience:

The location is very convenient since it’s so close to the metro station and you know, it’s Amsterdam, everything is a walk away! (Unless it’s raining). The service was excellent, the staff is very friendly and quick. And when it comes to food…

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, but please keep in mind that the pizzas are even more delicious than what they look like. There’s no fair way to describe them, you should just give them a try. We’ve ordered

We’ve also done some Italian beer tasting which was one of the best decisions of this trip.

My mom also asked to mention in this review their great music selection. She spent pretty much of her time singing or dancing without leaving her place. Oh well, moms.

Stand Up to your Skin

There are plenty of ways of getting your skincare routine wrong. I know that because for several years I was using products that were recommended by friends or that just smelled good.

Now that I’ve done my research in this topic and that I’m constantly on the lookout for new great skincare products that are non-animal tested and that are right for my type of skin and my age, that’s when I can tell you – I know what I’m talking about.

The latest addition to my skincare routine was the Wake Skincare Eye Gel, a very lightweight, hydrating eye treatment for fine lines and eye bags that will help me maintain a young looking appearance for many years to come.

The gel was formulated for our under-eye area and besides even out skin tone, it also improves elasticity and provides us with long-lasting hydration.

I’ve tried a similar product before from Body Shop, but I wasn’t happy with how long it was taking for my skin to absorb it and that’s not ideal when you’re trying to rush to the office in the morning.

With Wake Skincare eye gel I don’t have that problem anymore and it’s even helping me reduce the puffiness under my eyes.

If you want to give it a try, here’s their website.
