At Kusshi we love to travel if that wasn't pretty obvious already! As a remote team, with a serious case of wanderlust, we've visited wonderful places around the world. And now we want to share our travel adventures and tips with you - through our "mini travel guides", which we will be sharing right here on our blog. This is 24 hours in Amsterdam. Book your flight, pack your Signature KUSSHI makeup bag, and you're good to go!

Amsterdam. The city of bikes, canals, treasure-packed museums, a great dining scene, vintage-filled shops and so much more.


Pro tip:
the best way to explore Amsterdam is by bike. So, hop on while we guide you to our favorite places.


Morning Routine:

  • Start your day with a delicious breakfast at Dignita.
  • Or get a stroopwafel (Dutch caramel cookie) and a coffee at Van Wonderen.
  • Then pay a visit to photography museum Foam.
  • At only a 2-minute bike ride away from Foam, is the flower market. Definitely worth a visit! 

"Fun fact: everybody thinks that tulips come from Holland. Actually, tulips are native to Central Asia and Turkey. In the 16th century, they were brought to Holland from Turkey and quickly became widely popular. Today tulips are cultivated in Holland in great numbers and in huge fields."

  • End your morning by heading to De Negen Straatjes (The Nine Streets) for some shopping!

The quaint and quirky streets that straddle Amsterdam's grandest canals form the city's most photogenic micro-neighborhood. Known to locals as De Negen Straatjes, this special neighborhood is bursting with vintage and designer shops, specialty stores and cozy cafes. 

Where to shop in The Nine Streets:

Afternoon Unwind:


Nightfall:

  • End your day at the A'DAM Toren, where you can enjoy an incredible view of Amsterdam (amazing during sunset).
  • Or take in the view on Europe's highest swing on their skydeck - the A'DAM Lookout
  • Then tickle your tastebuds at Moon Restaurant (in the same building).

What to pack:

You might only have 24 hours in Amsterdam, but that gives you plenty of time to shop some great beauty products at the stores we mentioned above in the Nine Streets! Make sure to pack a KUSSHI Signature makeup bag full set so you can bring all of it back. Shop our makeup bags here


We hope you enjoyed our tips for a wonderful 24 hours in Amsterdam!

We know, the Hudson River Valley in the fall. Groundbreaking. But when the temperature dips there’s good reason the bucolic region gets so much attention. The sweeping views of fiery fall foliage, family-run orchards, and farm-to-table restaurants all add up to the perfect excuse to pack up you knitwear and head north. Plan an impromptu road trip to take it all in — from apple picking to antique shopping, we mapped out the perfect weekend in Hudson, New York.

The winters in Montreal, Québec’s largest city located just about an hour’s drive from the U.S. border, are some of the coldest in North America. And while residents certainly know how to navigate the freeze (see: the collective Canadian coat game), when temps start to rise, the city really comes alive.
