WHO IS FLOORTJE VAN COOTEN ?
” I was born in a small village in the countryside. I’ve lived in Amsterdam for about a year now. The reason I’ve started blogging back in 2011 was simply because I had no-one to share my passion with back in my hometown. People were not really into fashion. Because I had so many beautiful street style images on my computer, I started a blog to share them which became a succes. I moved to Amsterdam in December 2015, this city felt like home since the first day I arrived there. Besides my personal style development, my blog has been growing a lot since I started living in Amsterdam. I now finally live my own ‘ Sex & The City’ lifestyle, with a lot of fashion and fun.
My ultimate dream vacation would be on Bora Bora. I think there isn’t a place in the world that is more beautiful. But actually, there is so much to see and discover. I would like to do a road trip through America, travel through Asia and I would like to see the big five in South-Africa.
I have worked at a perfumery for three and a half years, so I am familiar with a lot of beauty brands. And thanks to blogging I’ve tried a lot of cosmetics during the last years. My favorites are Chanel, Dior, Sisley and Pixi. Im not leaving home without these brands in my make-up bag!
My beauty tips & tricks
I love a natural makeup look, which I think makes you look younger. My best tip would be to use skincare in a very early stage of your life. If you start at the age of fifteen your skin will be thankful when you’re around the age of fifty.
STYLISH LIKE THAT
My style muse is my mom. And okay, Leandra Medine from Man Repeller. I LOVE her style!
My own style in once sentence…I just need one word: chameleon. I can literally wear or like anything as long as it makes me feel confident.
My 3 favorite shopping spots:
Paris, Copenhagen and online! I love to go to Paris or discover hidden boutiques in Copenhagen. After all, I do love online shopping the most.
MEAL PLAN / FOOD PORN
My wining & dining spots:
- Terpentijn : It has a nice atmosphere, they serve very good food and it’s a perfect place for drinks after diner. 🙂
- Baut: Is a pop-up restaurant so it’s extra special. Once you visit this place, you will fall in love with the food, so so good. Until the end of this year you can find it in the old V&D building in the center of Amsterdam, which looks so cool.
- Stuyvesant: It’s defenitly of my favorite spots. The place looks super cool and is great to have some wines and bites
You can wake me up for? ANY type of food.
STILL NEED TO DO
My bucket list: holidays, holidays and more holidays as mentioned before.
THE PAPILLON REBELLE IN ME
Sometimes I like to go for a girly look so I can feel like the little princess within me and twirl around all day like a ballerina.”
