Another episode of Polienne around the clock that takes you to Amsterdam! This time only for a super quick breakfast meeting, which I will tell you all about later in my report. First of all I need to excuse myself for these two selfie shots that feature exactly the same Wiske face. I think I’m rather good at it.
Biking in a mini skirt is not really one of my talents, but HEY I made it on time for my Thalys to Amsterdam!
Straight from Antwerp to Amsterdam, let’s go!
Usually it’s rainy and grey whenever I pop by in Amsterdam, so I really enjoyed this royal 25° and warm breeze in the city! What a lovely way to start the day.
I was invited by Glamour for a yummy brunch to present their Glamour Health Challenge 2016. The entire month of July is all about stimulating the country to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, and the main event is taking place on June 11th in Amsterdam.
That day over 3000 girls can come over and work out with a few famous personal trainers (hello Mary Helen Bowers, trainer of Victoria’s Secret models Romee Strijd and Miranda Kerr), meet their favourite fit bloggers, enjoy Nike masterclass and discover the best sports gear by Zalando!
I’ll be there too to report my experiences too, and if you want to come over for a healthy and fun day, check out how to get your free tickets here!

Quick stroll next to the canals.
And a quick stop at my favourite store Weekday! I tried on a few pretty things but managed to keep myself restrained. After all, I’m going on a holiday to Spain next week and I’ll probably be raiding Zara, Mango and Bershka there. AND Weekday is coming to Antwerp soon anyways, so I hopefully still have time to reconsider some pieces by then.
As you can see, my stay in Amsterdam was VERY short. Back to Antwerp town!
Back in Antwerp I biked straight to Love Stories, since I still had a gift voucher to spend on their SS16 collection. The fact that you can mix and match pretty much everything, always makes it a lot harder to pick my favourite pieces. But after some deliberating, I took home this beautiful little ensemble!
Since the weather was so lovely, my squad and I decided to go for some afternoon drinks. I was early (ME, EARLY) and ordered myself a glass of rosé and a huge platter of fingerfood already. Ready, set, Summer!

In the evening I headed to my parents at the countryside, where I enjoyed a good old sunset. Not sure why I wrote good old, but here’s a photo of a sunset.
A peek in my Glamour x Zalando goodiebag! I got this real cool Ivy Park sports bra and a few beauty products by Maybelline. I’m especially curious for the Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur…
And I ended the day with a clay mask and the Eurovision semi-finals!
