Meet the Bloggers and Woonbeurs in Amsterdam

In the last two days I went to “Meet the Bloggers” event in Amsterdam. The first day was interesting. Listening to and meeting with the key note speaker, the one and only Victoria Smith from SF Girl by Bay followed by a very inspiring workshop done by Kirsten Jassies. I met nice bloggers from different places and it was nice to finally connect some names and faces together…:-) The second day was all about visiting the Woonbeurs. Nice designs, trends, shops.
