Well done, you managed to lose her. The one woman who was willing to cross oceans for you.

You pushed away the very person who would do almost anything to be with you. She never asked for anything except one reason to stay, proof that you wanted her and that there would be a future for you both. Alas, you failed to provide that and now, she’s gone.

She didn’t care that you weren’t rich or that you didn’t drive a fancy car, all she wanted was to be your lady. She didn’t care that you had flaws because she had flaws of her own. Weeks of spending time together made her fall for you and yet you chose to remain blind to the fact that she chose you regardless of what her friends were saying. All she ever wanted was for you to return the love which she so freely gave to you.

All you had to do was treat her right, which you did. There was no need for diamonds and roses, candlelit dinners and expensive spoils. She was a simple girl with a big heart whose only desire was to be loved and respected. You loved the fact that you didn’t have to put in effort, you loved the fact that she chose you day after day. All she needed was for you to look at her the same way she looked at you. You became comfortable and that was your mistake. You decided to keep the walls you built around your heart up, never letting her in. You chose to keep her at arm’s length when all she did was ask that you let her in.

She gave you the key to her heart and you chose to take it without anything in return.

You loved the fact that she stayed, even when you told her to go. Truth is, you were scared. Too scared to let her in, maybe it was because you felt vulnerable, or maybe it was because you had been hurt before. Even though she showed you time and time again that she was different, you chose to paint her with the same paint brush you used to paint the women of your past.

She made you a priority when all you did was make her one of your options.

When she gave you her hand you took her arm. You prayed upon her weakness for you and you ended up taking her for granted. She stuck by your side during the darkest of days. She remained faithful to the commitment she made to you, you didn’t care though because you never committed to her. Then, one day you told her to go and she decided enough was enough, she decided to leave forever. Without any contact on all fronts.

She stopped answering your calls, she stopped going to the places you used to go to. You lost her when you decided that she wasn’t good enough and you did that by choosing yourself time and again. Your lack of appreciation and gratitude for her became apparent after she realized that she was fighting for your attention. Well done, you managed to make a woman feel the sting of loneliness whilst in your company. The thing is, no woman will ever treat you the way she did.

She was one of a kind and you chose not to see that.

Now that she’s gone, you’ll be looking for her in every other woman you come across, only thing is, you won’t find her. She was unique, not only because of who she was but because of the way she chose to love you through thick and thin.

LindaStyleDiary loves Hotel FRANQ (Antwerp)

Antwerp, just an one hour drive from Rotterdam.
But once you arrive you can’t compare this city with Dutch cities.
You really have the feeling that you are on holidays.
Beautiful city, lovely people and don’t forget the Flemish.
Yes, that reminds you that you are abroad.

But it’s not just that one hour drive, it starts to find the best hotel in the city center.
Don’t look further because if you are planning a citytrip to Antwerp,
you must book a room at Hotel FranQ.

55

It’s a brand-new luxury boutique hotel in Antwerp, next to the ‘Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe Kathedraal’ and the Meir.
And you know what? In the past, the building was a bank. You can still find the details in the cellar. For example, the big safe from this previous bank.

Hotel FranQ is a 4-star hotel which is located in the city center of Antwerp. You really can see that this hotel is brand new!
I am in love with this luxury boutique hotel.
Because, when I arrived at the hotel you really feel like a queen, the decoration, the design and the furniture, everything is just perfect!

They have 5 types of rooms:
Overview
Small Classic Room
Classic Room
Deluxe Room
Junior Suites
Luxury Suites

I chose the ‘Deluxe Room’

The Deluxe rooms do have extra-long king size beds. The Deluxe rooms are furnished with elegancy, all rooms have a desk, 48” smart TV, a minibar, air-conditioning, safe, bluetooth sound system and Wi-Fi. Ideal for guests who are looking for a warm and luxurious room.

25-30m²
Room with extra-long king size beds (180×210)
Twin beds available upon request
Extra bed can be placed into the room upon request
Free espresso, tea and water available
Rain shower and bath
Bath products of Elemental Herbology
Bath robes and slippers available

This room is absolutely stunning!

RESTAURANT FRANQ
Restaurant FRANQ invites you to enjoy a contemporary French-Belgian cuisine at gourmet level. Their chef will spoil you with à la carte breakfast, delicious lunch or stylish dinner. Their team is always ready to make you enjoy tasty food. After a hectic day you can also enjoy these delicious dishes in your room.

BAR FRANQ
Bar FRANQ serves the best wines, delicious cocktails and pure coffee or tea. In addition to these delicious drinks, they have a delicious assortment of finger food or sweet treats.

Personal attention and love for the subject is self-evident. The excellent service, individual approach and overall experience are paramount.

Is there something special? They invite you to have lunch or dinner in their sixteenth century ‘Den Dooren Boom cottage’ or in one of their other stately rooms.

They also have a lovely terrace outside where you can enjoy the sun with a good glass of wine or champagne.

Unfortunately, there was no sun for me but just rain.

Lots of Love,
Linda

LindaStyleDiary loves Haas op het Vrijthof (Maastricht)

A city trip, many people would like to go abroad but don’t forget about Maastricht!
This is one of my favourite cities in Holland because you feel like you are abroad!
The people are so kind and the food and drinks are fantastic.

But it all starts with a hotel first! Don’t look further because ‘Haas op het Vrijthof’ is the most amazing hotel in Maastricht! This luxury boutique hotel has it all!

Luxury in a House full of Wonder
Haas op het Vrijthof was built in 1920 and became the private residence of a well-established lady.  This Art Nouveau house is a serene home away from home, situated in the quiet corner of the main square in the rich centre of Maastricht. The mansion is a piece of design in itself with its own amazing character and style. For the interior the focus on functional aesthetics is based on vintage classics and typical Scandinavian furniture pieces. In combination with modern-day travel wishes, it all results in a unique house filled with a wonderful collection of design, friendly details and happy people.

A selection that adds to the experience
In their house, you feel you are not staying in a usual hotel. It is a place where you are treated as being a part of it. During your stay, you are the inhabitants of the city, living on the Vrijthof. They supply you the keys for seeing the real city and experiencing a place where you can feel at home. Their comfortable living room overlooking the square is where you can work, enjoy breakfast, read a book, enjoy a cup of coffee or just sit down and wonder.

Their breakfast is personally made and you can tell them your preferences. They present it influenced by their regional producers and underneath two charming glass bells. It can be served at any time of choice and wherever you prefer. May it be in their room, our living room, your private terrace or even their kitchen. You are free to sneak down to their cellar and open your own private wine shelf to taste a selection of wines from the region. You have the opportunity to wind down with a chilled bottle in your suite or room.

They have 6 type of rooms
SEE HERE THE ROOMS

I chose the Superior Suite!
The name says it all. This suite is superior. The suite is a unique accommodation with its grandeur feel caused by the space, used materials and facilities. The salon room in this suite with Art Deco style is decorated with an old copper fireplace from 1920 and gives you a panoramic view on the Vrijthof. Furthermore, the Superior Suite contains a comfortable fully-equipped kitchen connected to the private green terrace. Two bedrooms are prepared with three comfortable beds in total. There are two bathrooms and one bath. Graceful ornaments and a combination of hardwood floor and stone contribute to make this suite delightfully eccentric and very special.

120 square meters – private salon room – fully equipped kitchen – private terrace – bathroom with bath – copper fireplace – 1 double master bedroom and 1 single bedroom – free internet access – well stocked mini-bar – bathrobe & slippers
The Superior Suite has a private elevator stop in the suite.

No idea what I could expect because they only have 3 pictures of this room on their webpage.
But when I opened the door of the room, one word: AMAZING!
This has nothing to do with a basic hotel, it feels like your own apartment and 120 square meters is not just a basic hotel, isn’t it? This is truly amazing!

The host was really helpful and show us the high topics of Maastricht! He asked us when we would like to have breakfast etc.

After a good sleep in their lovely beds it was time for breakfast at 09.00 AM, they served the breakfast in our room, in our kitchen! Isn’t it fantastic?

I truly recommend you this hotel in Maasticht because this luxury boutique hotel has it all!

TIME TO TRY IT OUT YOURSELF!
ENJOY!

Lots of Love,
Linda

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LindaStyleDiary loves Sleepyhead

1

As you may know I have 2 adorable nieces. These two little girls, Rosa and Beau are so much fun.
As you can read in one of my previous blogs I organized a baby shower for my sister last February.

Read here all about the baby-shower.

Rosa is now 3 years old and the little Beau is 5 months old!

The big surprise? We gave her a Sleepyhead Deluxe!
If you are not a baby lover, please keep continue reading because this can be useful later when you have your own baby!
For all the baby lovers, this is the perfect gift for your baby!

 

Why?

This is perfect for travelling, lightweight, your baby is sleeping perfectly and after all it’s really fashionable!

The Sleepyhead Deluxe gave the little babies a sense of security and they sleep well in it. When they did not fit in anymore, the Grand was a good successor. She don’t push her arms against the bars. She stays calm in bed so she sleeps all night. No more restless nights anymore!

Again in the womb:
Sleepyhead® is designed to provide a safe, cozy and relaxing environment for babies. We would like to think that our litters are the best alternative for the uterus. Babies can rest, play and lounge, without the restrictions of buckles or the distraction of brightly colored things around them.

To travel:
Sleepyhead® is perfect if you’re a jet-setting family or just want a place to move from room to room. Sleepyhead® is lightweight material and easy to travel with.

Microclimate & Environment:
For a baby’s climate, everything must be perfect, comfortable and safe, then we should not only think about the global climate, but also their microclimate. The microclimate is the space that directly affects their environment. Sleepyhead® is hypoallergenic and made with the most caring and hygienic materials that also offer excellent air permeability.

Why Sleepyhead®:
There are so many nests, why is Sleepyhead® so different? The Sleepyhead® has been extensively tested using the best and breathable materials to create a perfect microclimate for babies and children. We are not just a litter and do not use any child-unfriendly materials such as elastic strings and small “wooden string” closures.

All our materials, clips, zippers are baby trials. Even the clips that the bumpers hold together when jammed by themselves jump out of safety when more than a weight of 5 kilos is stepped up.

Our nests are designed with air permeability in mind, the face of the baby (mouth and nose) is relatively high relative to the sides. The sides are low and rounded. A baby that is properly in the nest, on his back, breathes in open air so to speak. Unlike other basinets, nests or baskets, the interior of our nests has been carefully designed to achieve maximum breathability.

As you can read everything is perfect for your baby with sleepyhead. You don’t have to worry anymore!
You can do your cooking, your washing, cleaning etc. and keeping an eye on them and know that there is nothing going to happen with you baby!
Lay it down on the sofa or in the little bed of your baby and he/she will sleep so good!

 

Little Beau grew very fast so she didn’t really fit in her Sleepyhead Deluxe anymore, so we had to order the Sleepyhead Grand! She is a little bit too small at the moment for the Grand, because the Deluxe is for babies from 0 up to 8 months old and the Grand is for 8 op to 36 months old.

Shop the Sleepyhead Deluxe here!

My sister, the mother of those two little kids is so extremely happy!

Lindastylediary’s Indian Summer

Hi there! We all know that autumn is here and it’s getting darker and colder outside. The trees will lose their leaves and it’s raining a lot. Despite all this, the days can be very nice and beautiful during daytime. Yes guys, only during daytime as the mornings are dark when I wake up and when I am having dinner right now I need to put light on or candles. This is also something nice of course, but the contrast with the summer and fall is nothing for me. The beloved summer days, sun, heat, drinks, BBQ etc. is much more fun isn’t it? But yeah, we must sadly admit to that. I would like to hibernate but that means that I cannot update you guys about all my activities and outfits. So yes, I will make the best of it, we will make the best of it!

Indian Summer, it’s like a farewell to the real summer. So I am going to enjoy it the most, because Winter will be here before you know it!

So go out for a walk during the day, having lunch with your beloved ones, drinking coffees on terraces in the sun, go to the beach with your jacket on and say goodbye to the summer.

Time to put candles on, Netflix and chill, make dinner for your friends, drink wine with them and enjoy this time. Although I hate winter I am secretly looking forward to Christmas.

Lots of love,

Lindastylediary
