Amsterdam… the city of beautiful canals, windmills and narrow houses. Being one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe, the streets are flooded with tourists and Instagram is flooded with selfies on bridges. A huge positive for a trip to Amsterdam is the cheap travel, with flights being less than £45 off-peak return, and the new Eurostar route being less than £80 off-peak return. But when it comes to hotels, you’re lucky to get a central hotel for less than £400 for 5 nights, which is extremely off putting!

I’ve seen plenty of Primark Hauls on YouTube recently: HOW MUCH CAN YOU REALLY BUY FOR £50 FROM PRIMARK? 💸. There were some absolutely gorgeous items and I knew I had to get my hands on them. I’m going on holiday soon and wanted to welcome some new items to my wardrobe and so I did, this whole Primark Haul totals £38 which I think is an absolute bargain for 7 items!
We get so wound up in our own lives… our own stress and worries. We forget other people around the world feel these emotions too, likewise we have our own achievements and we forget other’s achievements.
