26 tips for this weekend in the amsterdam weekend guide

I have to confess something! I actually don’t really mind that Summer is over. Because secretly I always love the city when it gets a little colder and everyone has returned from their holidays. During Fall there are also so many great events to attend! And if you ask me, it’s the perfect time to visit all the wine bars and coffee places in Amsterdam week after week for a drink or coffee date with friends. I’m also very much looking forward to invite all of our friends for dinner this Fall and Winter. With the birth of Manuel we’ve redecorated our house and everything is now finally finished. I made a home tour video about it for anyone who’s interested!

Do you already have plans for the weekend? In the new weekend guide I’ve lined up yet again 26 tips for you. Have fun with the tips from this Amsterdam Weekend Guide for 21, 22 and 23 September.

don’t miss it: Goaldiggers Club Session

And lastly, I have a nice announcement to share with you! Sunday September 30 I’m partaking in the panel of the Goaldiggers Club Session where I will tell all about how to build a successful brand strategy, together with my fellow inspiring women. A day in the W Hotel in Amsterdam that’s full of sessions on how you can make your own business (to be) as successful (or more) by learning from other entrepreneurs. Check out the full schedule here! A ticket is€ 99,-, but use the discount code ‘YOURLBBXTHEGOALDIGGERSCLUB‘ and receive a 10% discount on your ticket!


Will you be there? Bring my books and I will sign them for you after the session!
