It’s Fashion Week (winter) Season! From New York to London, Paris to Milan, we all know the major fashion capitals. And tiny countries like the Netherlands are often not associated with fashion, but little do people know, we do have our own Amsterdam Fashion Week, that takes place twice a year(January-winter edition and July-summer edition).
With that said, the winter edition of Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Amsterdam took place last week, from January 26th till the 29th and I was happy to be part of the production team again. If you follow me on Instagram, you might already have seen some behind-the-scenes visuals via my Instagram stories and Instagram Live.
And just like last (summer) edition I was able to score a lovely goodie bag. Only this time not from a participating designer or bloggers café, but from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week itself and its partners. In my previous Amsterdam Fashion Week goodie bag blog post, I categorized the goodies in different sections, which I’ve done for this post again: Skincare & Beauty, Fashion & Accessories, Food & Drinks, Stationery & Blogging.
This time I won’t go over the entire products from my goodie bag, because it’s quite a lot, compared to last time. So I will save it for a separate review later on, which will be mostly for the skincare and beauty products. For now I’ve just mentioned the product and brand.

This last product from my goodie bag, is one that I’m actually the happiest about: The Happiness Planner. You’ve probably seen this all over the blogosphere, but this notebook/planner is one that can add a bit of happiness to a
blogger’s anyone’s life. Obviously it will take some work and dedication to keep up with your monthly goals. Since I’m not the type who sets timebound goals anymore, I will only use it for my blog post ideas and planning. And when I don’t have any inspiration to blog, then hopefully the motivational words that are in this planner will put a smile on my face and help me get back into my blogging mode. 🙂
And these were all the products from my Amsterdam Fashion Week goodie bag. I will definitely use most of these products and I might give away some, but they’re definitely worth the try!!
So tell me, have you tried any of these brands/products before? Are you planning on going to any fashion week or have you already been? Let me know! As always, xo, Jey.
