Just like you could never expect me to wear heels anywhere before noon - I'm not your high heels lady, never was one - and you can always expect our house to be filled with fresh flowers on a Friday, I will never ever leave Amsterdam without paying a visit to my favorite shop in town, Marie-Stella-Maris.
For those who haven't been properly introduced yet; Marie-Stella-Maris is an Amsterdam-based lifestyle brand that not only stuns with an excellent attention to detail when it comes to their packaging, they also stand out with surprisingly effective skincare and the most addictive smells. On top of that Marie-Stella-Maris believes everyone should have access to a source of clean drinking water. By offering natural care products, a fine range of home fragrances and natural mineral water, they are dedicated to contribute. For each product sold, Marie-Stella-Maris donates a fixed amount towards clean drinking water projects worldwide. Since introducing in 2012, Marie-Stella-Maris has been able to support 8 water projects and help more than 17.000 people with access to clean drinking water.
I myself have the weakest spot for their Poivre Noir range, stocking up on the liquid soap, room spray and scented candle whenever in Amsterdam. Luckily Marie-Stella-Maris is now available in Belgium as well. You can find their Belgian points of sale right here. And don't tell me I haven't warned you; this brand will strike you by the minute!
