This week I spent a day at Amsterdam with some of my classmates. We visited the Starbucks conceptstore and a very cool organic supermarket (I will write about that later) at Rembrandtplein. We did some shopping, had nice food and I have been a couple of places in Amsterdam I’d never been before.
The concept store starbucks is brilliant! Very spacious and beautifully decorated. You can socialize here with your friend, but you can also take your time to relax with a cup of coffee and something nice to eat. Ofcourse my camera was empty after the first shot I made, so I will share some pictures made with my crackberry, and some from the internet with you. I was pleasantly suprised by this store!
@ The Bank – Concept Store

Monday till Sunday: 07:00 – 22:00
I will be in Mallorca with my lovely friends!
I really look forward to have a good time with partys, drinks and the sun.
I am dreaming about a beautiful home, unfortunately i got a 16m ² student room and a realllyy small budget. However, once I will have a large, light and beautiful house, i hope.
I found another inspiring food innovation: PlantLab!
What is it?
PlantLab is a new company in Den Bosch, The Netherlands. They build greenhouses on a square meter with LED lighting. Through sophisticated computer programs it’s possible to cultivate a variety of your own invented vegetables and herbs. Because of the size, they can be built anywhere. For example, on the roof of a parking garage.
Why is it cool?
This coolhunt fits well with the Urban Farming trend. Urban Farming takes the countryside to the city by getting small vegetable gardens on for example, roofs. This is done by many restaurants, but you can also do on your own balcony.
Now that’s a very natural process, PlantLab is different. You can create your own vegetables and herbs and you can maintain it through technology. Useful for those who like fresh vegetables and the environment, but have a very full agenda.

These are some designer items I would like to have.. unfortunately I’m a poor student.. I am going to have less money in two weeks, I finally found a room and I am going to live in Tilburg, The Netherlands! When it’s finished, I’ll take pictures and share them with you!
We started with a new sector at school, we are busy with ‘Food‘ now.
When I was doing the necessary research work, I came across a great development: the edible packaging.
What is it?
This invention ensures you don’t have to throw your drink packaging away.
The professor who is working hard on this Wiki Cells project is Dr. David Edwards. He is examining how far it is possible to create edible packaging.
The Wiki Cells will form the basis of the package.They are able to work as solid glass, but they are also suitable to consume. Different flavors can be added to the membranes, like the taste of chocolate or candy. If you don’t like the taste, you can always throw away the packaging because it is biodegradable.
Currently you can only try this at the Lab Store in Paris. This is a concept design store. The only challenge now is to make the product widely to offer.
Why is it cool?
I think this invention is a wonderful combination of food and sustainability. This is an experiment but if this can be used on a large scale, it will ensure that less waste in the world. I also think it’s cool that it has two functions, keeping the liquid inside, and that edible part. Little bit experience economy.
I only talk about things I like here, and I was so excited when I saw this, I have to share this with you. Ben&Jerry’s has introduced a new and healthier version of their amazing ice cream : frozen greek yogurt!
This is what they say about their new innovation:
”Grab a spoon and explore the latest Ben & Jerry’s creation that is uniquely Greek! We’ve combined the creamy richness of Greek Yogurt with our notorious colossal chunks and swirls to bring you Ben & Jerry’s Greek Frozen Yogurt.”
”Loaded with all the flavor boldness you’d expect, this creative concoction will release your inner Greek. It’s our most epic frozen yogurt yet! So get your Greek on and give it a try. We think it’ll rock your acropolis. Enjoy!”
Here they are:
Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Peanut Butter Banana, Strawberry Shortcake and Vanilla Bluebarry Graham
The only thing which is a bit disappointing is that it’s only available in America.. Just an extra reason on my list to go and visit the USA.
I just like summer
.. and the beach, clear blue water, sunshine, white sand, sunglasses, bikini’s, icecream, the smell of sunscreen, palm trees, flipflops, dresses, cocktails, sunset, shorts, swimming, fresh tropical fruits and tanned skin.
And psssst.. I made the last two pictures by myself, last year when I visited Aruba!
This picture says enough I think.
Look how amazing this bracelets look.
They are a bit pricy, but I am thinking of buying one..
This is my favourite, It’s 49,99 euros and you can order it here: http://www.jewelzenmore.nl
