Besides obsessing over every small detail about my new collection and it’s launch, I have also been keeping busy lately trying to plan the pop-up event I will be attending in October in Malmö, Sweden. As I mentioned in the last blog post I will be participating in a pop-up event on the 27th of October so if you’re around, make sure you pop in at Salon New Wave close to Triangeln. I will be showcasing my best-sellers and give a 20% discount on those particular designs - and hosting a special giveaway of a 50 euro gift card for the people attending that day. So lots to look forward to if you're popping by!
Why a hair salon you might ask? It’s a funny story. I met “K”, my hairdresser while she was still working at a salon close to my old work place in Copenhagen. By random choice I booked her for my first appointment at that salon, which by the way was unfamiliar to me and those who know me well know that it takes a lot for me to try a new hair salon (been disappointed so many times), but I decided to “man up” and try it. And then, magic happened! We just clicked. K and I could probably talk for hours without running out of things to say to one another- and that’s when you know you have a real connection.
I recently had another moment like that with a woman in Boozt in Copenhagen, who helped me pick out the newest Bobby Brown cream shadow (make up geek alert - that’s a whole different post lol). Her name was Diane. She was the loveliest Texan I have ever met. She mistook me for an American because of my accent and choice of words, and then I explained how I had lived in NYC during my fashion studies etc, and we just started talking from there. We spent 20 minutes just chit-chatting. Two strangers. That's a looong time if you think about it.That’s when you know you click. Unfortunately, I was running late and had to cut our lovely encounter short, but so left there with a big smile, some make up and an invitation to come find her if I ever wanted to go to Texas and she would makes some calls to make sure we’d have a wonderful time. Such a lovely, authentic human being. Warms my heart that they still exist.
This is how I feel about my hairdresser as well. After my first or second visit we started following each other on social media, and she also won one of my draws and got to choose a ring from my collections (she went with Galaxy) which she absolutely adores. Unfortunately, she moved back to Malmö - but that doesn’t stop me! I now take the train over from Copenhagen to Malmö just to get my hair cut by her. That is how good she is! I don’t care if it takes me all day and I have to get a sitter for my son - it’s THAT kind of good and I genuinely enjoy her company so much that it makes the trip worth it.
She wrote me and asked if I’d be interested in showcasing my jewellery at a pop- up event they were hosting at the salon - and I jumped at the chance! Now I am busy preparing all the displays, planning the layout of my table and every little detail that goes into a pop-up. I can't even begin to express how ecstatic I am about the event - it's my first one since The Ethical Fashion Fair in Berlin in 2015 - so about time, if you ask me :). So remember, if you're around Triangeln on the 27th, make sure to pay us a visit - I'd love to meet you in person.
New business cards straight off the press. Made using recycled paper, of course. What do you think?
