On Saturday the 9th. Anna from Four Seasons One Wardrobe and I met in Copenhagen. I was so exited, since this is my first face to face meeting with a fellow blogger. And I was nervous too - I thought Anna was 27 years old, and me being more than 20 years older could make communication a challenge beyond the language issue.
I was so wrong! First of all she is not 27, but slightly older although you can't tell from her looks. Second the differences in language proved to be no issue at all, we understood each other very well (she speaks Swedish and I speak Danish).
Not only is Anna very beautiful, she is also a very interesting person. She does important research in gerontology (I hope this is right Anna!) that will benefit all of us. I'm expecting to see her on the news any day now explaining her latest findings!
We spent most of the time shopping - I didn't buy much, a gift for a friend who's birthday party I was attending the same evening. But I'm glad to say that Anna did get a few nice souvenirs from her tour down Strøget, our very long pedestrian street. See more on Anna's blog.
On a very sunny and warm afternoon we did manage to squeeze in a lunch break during which Anna gave me a present, this great bracelet that I've worn every day since! Thank you again Anna!
The writing says: If you think happy you live happy
I love the words and it fits me perfectly - not bad considering my thick wrists! Embarrassingly it never crossed my mind to get her a present. I'll have to get my "revenge" when I visit her in Sweden!
Here's how the rest of me looked:
The strong sunshine nearly ruined our photos, so this is the best I can find. There's just not enough sunny days in this country for me to get trained in taking photos in this kind of light!
We finished the lovely afternoon off with coffee and more talk.
In my last post I wrote about my experience with the Marc Jacobs shop in Copenhagen. I was ignored by the staff, leaving me feeling invisible. That would of course never have happened on a Monday! On Mondays I dress to be visible, as you can see below:
This is also my contribution to Visible Monday at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. My daughter took a few pictures right before the downpour, I mean like 60 seconds before! There's another one showing the jewellery:
Now, my exam is on Thursday so there's not going to be more post until after that - wish me luck!
