Hello! Oh my it has been a while.. I'm sorry!
Last Wednesday I went to my first ever bloggers event/evening organized by Søstrene Grene in Groningen. It was pretty amazing! I met the nicest people and I just love the shop. It was well worth spending 6 hours in a train ;)
Søstrene Grene is a Danish shop with lots of items for low prices. They have multiple shops in Scandinavia, but only one in the Netherlands. That one is all the way up north in Groningen. A beautiful city which I happened to visit quite a few times this last year.
We were welcomed with drinks and cupcakes and we were introduced to the shop and their employees. They had set up a tea tasting and we could shop! And get to know eachother. Since I didn't know many Dutch blogs/bloggers, this was a great opportunity for me to meet new people.
I didn't get to speak to everyone obviously (there were about 50 people), but the people I did meet were so nice! Plus, I wasn't the only one traveling all the way from the south to get here. Which made my train ride back also a lot more fun :)
So as I said, we got to do some shopping. We also received a goodie bag! One thing I like about this shop is the fact they change their inventory every week, so you will always find something new and fun. I really hope they will open a store more located to where I live (they said they're planning to!).
The bottom photo shows the items I picked up: a pack of jumbo cards, a water bottle with cute robots and a rain cap for my bike.
The cards were meant for a party last Friday with the theme 'Casino of Gold'. I was super excited about it, but I got sick that night -.-" Luckily my friends still got some use out of these cards!
Everything in the middle was in the goodie bag. Some cute items, like the mugs and easter items. Everyone got a sachet of their fresh tea, mine was 'summer fruits'. It smells delicious, still need to try it though (in the provided tea egg). We also got some old-fashioned candy, liquorice root and liquorice candies. The box in the front is soap, smells like old times haha
It was a nice evening and I had lots of fun. Hope I can do something similar again soon!
Bye bye for now :)
