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 at 7th Sunday Festival

14

Sunday, what to do on Sundays? That’s always my question. But during summer time there are plenty things to do. But last Sunday I had nothing planned, just go for an ice-cream with my little niece Rosa.

Waking up, everything very slow… coffee, breakfast etc. etc. Around 11:00 o’clock my lovely friend Anouk sent me a message, if I had any plans for today. No sweetie, not really. Do you want to join us at 7th Sunday Festival with My Jewellery? OK, sound great but most people know that I am not really a big fan of last minute plans… thinking thinking….. Sound perfect to me but at what time do you need to be there? She told me half past one. Oooohh noooo, already 11:30 and it’s a one-hour drive, I wasn’t home at the moment, that’s not good for my brain. LOL

AND OF COURSE, WHAT TO WEAR?
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time to change my outfit as I wasn’t home.
But after all, my outfit was good

Called my father and asked for his car, my FIAT 500 is fine but his car is driving for free! So to my parent’s place, didn’t change my outfit because I didn’t have the time for it. Pick up the car and started my road trip to 7th Sunday Festival (near Veghel)
Did leave a little bit late so I had to drive very fast! Whoop Whoop!

Called my friend Anouk and we arrived at the same time at the parking spot of 7th Sunday. Great timing babe! Just a few minutes in advance some of the group from My Jewellery arrived already so we met them there.

Time to go to the VIP area! The team of My Jewellery was almost complete and we started with champagne! Great spot, nice view, nice music and of course NICE PEOPLE!

Just a little reminder for your guys, if you are still looking for a festival outfit, have a look at the My Jewellery webshop. You find amazing outfits and of course the festival essentials!
www.my-jewellery.com

Champagne, wine, snacks and a lot of fun makes us dancing on the tables! We stayed for a while on the VIP deck but after that we went downstairs to explore the festival! It was just like a small village! I had a lot of fun!

Thanks Anouk & My Jewellery for this lovely and sunny Sunday! And girls… don’t forget to shop your outfit at My Jewellery because this Saturday it’s time for Boothstock!

Lots of Love,

LindaStyleDiary at LakeDance Festival

Oh yes, it’s that time of the year again and I received a stunning invitation from
My-Jewellery

2 VIP tickets for LakeDance!

It was quite tough for me to choose the outfit. Because on a festival you need to wear some summer outfits. Unfortunately, I am not living in Spain anymore but in The Netherlands. Which can be quite difficult, because it can be cold, windy, rainy etc.
And don’t forget, during the week the temperature is amazing and during the weekends it’s cold and rainy!

But it doesn’t really matter this time because I was rockin’ this festival in the Flower Bow Dress from MyJewellery!  To make my outfit complete I chose for the Multicolor Ibiza Bag, the Summer Love Hat and some nice bracelets and necklaces.

Shop the items here:

Flower Bow Dress
Multicolor Ibiza Bag
Summer Love Hat

After all I chose for my Sendra boots because these boots are perfect for festivals, because they are handmade and leather boots, so it will always stay good.

Another outfit during the evening because the temperature was going down.
I chose for a blouse with the Striped Pantalon Black and my Isabel Marant Bart sneakers.

This was so much fun because the weather was truly amazing (I mean, without rain)
Thank you so much MyJewellery and LakeDance for this amazing day!

PS; I stayed until the end of the festival, so it was a GOOD ONE!

Lots of Love,

LindaStyleDiary

LindaStyleDiary loves Cornelis

7You’ll be thinking, who is Cornelis?

Cornelis Bar & Kitchen is  a wine-bar and  grill-room, where you can  have lovely dinners and  fantastic parties!

As you have read previously, I celebrated  my Birthday there!

I made a reservation for approx. 30 people and they had a nice spot reserved for me at the bar. The service was extremely good! As the wine bottles were empty, there was already a new bottle! The friends who didn’t drink wine they could order their drinks at the bar! Very easy going and as I told me before, the service was good. They often asked  me if everything  was alright.

OH YEAH, IT WAS! 

Every month they organise a party. So last Friday I was there with my lovely friend @urbanfitgirls! Talking, dancing, had some wine and cocktails!
It was a fantastic night!

Lindastylediary and her sister’s baby shower

I am already ‘Auntie Linda’ for my little niece Rosa! But my second niece is on her way and its almost time!

To surprise my sister, I organized a baby shower. Looking for the perfect gift? We gave her the sleepyhead! To be honest, don’t ask me advice for babies, because it’s not really my cup of tea!  And that will remain equally as I want to have children as late as possible! Because I want to enjoy the ”without baby life” first and the fullest otherwise I will regret that later probably.

Although we gave her the amazing sleepyhead. Read all about on their webpage.

All the friends and family made delicious food!

And don’t forget: Who run the world? GIRLS! 

 

LindaStyleDiary B-DAY BASH

Saturday the 14th of January I turned 27 years old.

”TIME TO PARTY! ”

My Birthday starts always a few days in advance, dinner with friends, dinner with family etc. So this year it started on Thursday the 12th of January with Tapas at La Cubanita Gorinchem. Friday the 13th of January… oh yeah as you can see it’s FRIDAY THE 13TH… So one day before my birthday I took a day off for a day at the Spa. Friday evening was time for cocktails!

SATURDAY THE 14TH OF JANUARY 

Family came in the morning for coffee and pie and we had a lovely brunch!
My little niece Rosa was there as well! Such a cutie!

In the evening my date gave me 27 roses and chocolate!!! Which I die for! So kind of him!

LET’S CELEBRATE!

As I’ve reached the 30K followers on Instagram, I thought it’s time for a ‘Wine and Dine’ with friends.
People are busy these days so it was quite tough to get everyone together in such a short time.
But after all, some people made the time for me to celebrate my success and I truly appreciate it. Thank you guys for being on my ‘Wine and Dine’ party!

I truly enjoyed cooking for all of you and I had a lovely evening with these beloved ones.

Lots of Love,
