As you may know I’m blogging for a year now and I’m so lucky to get invited to all kind of events and other things. Because this was really a super cool event, I thought it should be funny to give you a peek in my blogging life and an impression of what it’s like to attend a cool blogger event.
So last thursday I was invited by U-PR for a tour through Amsterdam and visit some cool stores. Let’s get started!
We started with a lovely healthy breakfast from YoghurtBarn at the store: Every Day Counts. It’s a new store in Amsterdam. Every Day Counts brings modern simplicity men’s and womenswear. The clothing are inspired by nature, which explains their natural colors. I really love that store, because they’ve the perfect basics you can wear over and over again.
After finishing our breakfast and have seen the store from Every Day Counts, every group get’s their own “Tour Guide” and you have to believe he was really hysterical funny.
Our second store was Dr Martens. I think everybody knows the brand. If you don’t shame on you. At Dr Martens we saw their new collection. The Tattoo and Hawai print are totally on trend right now, you saw it on their shoes and also in the clothing. Also it was possible to customize your own Dr Martens pair of shoes. I think that’s is really a cool idea.
The third store was Marc O’Polo. They welcomed us with a glass of wine and some lovely food. Their Spring Summer was all about natural colors and they used natural fabrics. Really Marc O’Polo. Also there was a little run way show in the store.
NEXT stop is TOMS. I knew TOMS only because of his name and that they sell some shoes. But I have to admit TOMS really stole my heart. So let me tell you something about the concept. If you buy a pair of shoes in their store, they give a new pair to a child that is in need. So that is “One for One“.
Also while you are shopping you could buy some coffee, you give to a person in need some clear water for a whole day. I think that is really a good concept. But there’s more. Buy some sunglasses and you help a person for having a better sight. Such as a new glasses or a surgery or a medical treatment.
After TOMS we visit Swatch. I think everybody know Swatch, they sell some beautiful watches in their store. They showcased their SS collection. It was all about the Red White and Blue collection, you can expect a lot of stripes and blue for the traveller who can sail on the big waves. The second one was all about Games. Think of Monopoly, Scrabble, Mikado and Operations. It’s a really funny collection with a lot of colors. We also saw a sneak-preview of the new collection and I can tell you it was all about food. Really playful.
What do you think of these delicious Cake Pops. It was heaven in my mouth.
There was also a mini quiz, you could win a watch from their new collection. Thank god there’s Google. Well I didn’t won a watch but Larissa and I filled in all the question correctly.
After Swatch it was time for for Mac Cosmetics. They told us everything about Mascara’s and the difference between al kind of brushes and how to use it. I think for the ladies in our group it was very helpful.
After MAC it was time for our final stop. WE Fashion Store. WE reminds me of my youth, when I was shopping in Utrecht with my mom we always visit the WE Store to buy me some new clothes. At the WE store is was time for some lunch, they had smoothies and sandwiches the perfect lunch after a tour through Amsterdam. Also the PR manager told us about their new campaign #DressUpThursday which you should every thursday on Instagram or Twitter. Also about the trends, such as denim and also she showed a sneek peak of the collection that is coming in stores very soon.
So I hope you enjoyed my little report of this wonderful event. Please let me know in the comments below. And I want to thank U-PR for this opportunity and the invitation.
Till next time.
