Amsterdam Weekend Guide for September 30, October 1 & 2

29 September 2016

Autumn has officially begun! And that means it’s time to make every effort for a wonderful fall. For all the shopaholics among us that means a new wardrobe as well ;-) And this weekend is the perfect occasion for that. Not only are there a lot of markets in the city, it’s also time to celebrate National Glamour Day this Saturday. The best part: especially for this annual celebration the pop-up of the Glamour Concept Store opens this weekend. And guess what they sell there? My books! HOW COOL! I love the Glamour Concept Store and now my books are sold there, can somebody pinch me please? So if you’re in need of a new wardrobe, want to make your interior winter proof or eager for some inspiration, make sure you visit the Glamour Concept Store in the Rosmarijnsteeg 10!. And of course the weekend as much more to offer. Read on and discover the best new hotspots and fun to do’s in this Amsterdam Weekend Guide >> Enjoy!

>> Also fun: The Amsterdam City Guide app is almost ready! That means that the beta version is still available for free. Go check it out! For Android and iOS.

YOURLBB.TV tip: Now that autumn has officially begun, it’s time to start fighting against the winter depression by means of precaution. My best remedy? A city trip! One of my favourite trips of last year is Tel Aviv! Check the Tel Aviv City Guide in the video below and get inspired for your fall trip!

PS: every Friday around 11:45 you can listen live to the Amsterdam Weekend Guide on Amsterdam FM!
