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 Anna van Toor

I love fashion, the perfect styling of it and good service.
All the above you’ll find this at Anna van Toor.

The women play here the leading role and we love that, isn’t it ladies?

The stores are spread throughout the country, but my preference is for the store in Gorinchem. I know the people, the service is great and not to mention,  Annette van Toor is there as well and she is awesome !!

In the world of Anna van Toor …

… women play the lead and style is the binding factor. Their collections are therefore designed for the stylish, sporty and contemporary women in The Netherlands. Anna van Toor’s history dates back to 1918 and since 1999 they have designed women’s fashion under their own brand Anna. In the meantime, the 3rd generation is moving and Anna van Toor is moving forward at full speed. Quality, customer focus and responsibility are paramount to Anna van Toor and these values are felt in all aspects of their company. At Anna van Toor, fashion goes beyond temporary trends, they offer the customer a unique style.

It’s not only clothing, they also have some lovely shoes!
I can truly spend the whole day in the store and enjoy all the fashion items there.
Also because of their beautiful design at their coffee corner.
It called the ‘Dutch Design’

Don’t forget to bring your family and friends, because there is something for everyone!

Enjoy your shopping ladies!
And don’t forget, it’s SALE!

Lots of Love,
