‘De Pijp’ is one of my favorite areas in Amsterdam. It has everything!
A beautiful park, a daily market, little boutique shops, cute café’s and bars with long opening hours. And the peeps that hang around in this area are a great mixture of students, little families, party-poopers and tourists. What more could you wish for?
A few weeks back I spend the Saturday strolling around. Starting with an unbelievable jummy and even healthy breakfast at Cottoncake. This is the place for cappuccinos with perfect froth. For edgy, renewing brands. For fine, organic food. For the softest fabrics. For detail. For art.

After I found myself a lovely new outfit for the winter at Cottoncake, I went to the Gerard Doustraat. In the last few years this street has transformed in a real shopping heaven. With the cutest little boutique shops, pop-up stores and divers offer of food and drinks.
Perfect to get some gifts for this holiday season. Or some other special event! Like this funny card and cute little leather boots of Donsje at Anna + Nina. The best gift for a friend expecting a little baby.
I also couldn’t resist buying a pair for my babyboy;)…(see photo above)

The perfect place to end the day is Bar Mash. In summertime you can enjoy your drink in the last sun. In wintertime the heaters will keep you warm outside, but I love to sit inside. The interior is all wood, which makes it cosy and the music is great. Oldschool hiphop!
