Amsterdam shopping

Last Saturday I decided to go to Amsterdam for a day, on my own. I just felt like getting away from everything and everyone for a day, to a place where no one knows me and no one cares. I like being alone and wandering around. I can go wherever I want, to stores that I like and spend there as much time as I need to.

Everytime I go to Amsterdam I stop by the American bookcenter and buy a couple of new novels. This time: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I've already read a few chapters and really like it so far. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. The Virgin Suicides is one of my favourite books so I am eager to read other novels by this author. And the last one is The Apple by Michel Faber. These are short stories about some of the characters from The Crimson Petal and the White. I read and finished this book in the train back home.

Bobbi Brown gel liner. I've wanted this gel liner for sooo long, because I love the 1950s winged eyeliner look. I've always used cheap eyeliners but I just became annoyed by the fact that I could never get my eyeliner quite perfect(I'm an extreme perfectionist, just so you know). I heard from reviews that this is one of the best eyeliners out there and well, I like to have the best of the best. I'm very satisfied with this eyeliner even though it was super pricey (eyeliner + brush €49... DAMN)

Another MAC lipstick. This one is called "Lady Danger"

Saved by the Bell t-shirt from the River Island men section. I've wanted this t-shirt for so long so I'm super happy I finally got it.

Hoodie from New Yorker. Love the colour and it's super comfy

Vintage flannel shirt from Episode. This flannel is lined so it's very warm, something I can use in the current weather. It's so big on me, I love it!

Vintage Alabama University jacket from Episode. I'm collecting the United States of America... on jackets. I have two so far, this one, Alabama, and Iowa. I really want to have one with Nevada, Texas or California on the back.
