Søstrene Grene and Plan International Partner-Up

Søstrene Grene

Søstrene Grene is een Deense retailketen, opgezet door de Grene familie in 1973. Søstrene Grene (de Gezusters Grene in Deens) heeft maar liefst 13 winkels in Nederland en twee in België. De producten die te koop zijn worden ontworpen met creativiteit, geluk en plezier (‘hygge’ in Deens) en het concept van “Slow Living” in gedachte. De winkel heeft een ruim assortiment aan producten voor huis, keuken, knutselen, feest, kantoor, en kinderen. Prijzen zijn laag; een afdruiprekje heb je al voor €4,89. Wij, van Mimi Berlin, hebben de winkel nog niet bezocht maar we zijn erg benieuwd! (scroll down for English text)

Koop water doneer aan Plan International

Plan International en Søstrene Grene starten een drie jaar durende samenwerking met als doel gelijke kansen voor alle kinderen, met een nadruk op meisjes. Bij de keten gelooft men dat er meer gelijkheid moet zijn op deze wereld. Wanneer iedereen elkaar als zussen behandelt, zal de wereld een mooiere plek worden. Met deze gedachte is de samenwerking van start gegaan, waarbij een deel van de opbrengst van kartonnen waterkartonnen aan Plan International gedoneerd wordt.
Per verkochte karton, van €0,66 wordt €0,10 gedoneerd aan Plan International. Daarnaast zal Søstrene Grene, ongeacht hoeveel waterkartonnen verkocht worden, het eerste jaar minstens €53.500 doneren. Als er meer waterkartonnen verkocht worden, zal dit bedrag nog hoger worden. Plan International zal het gedoneerde geld gebruiken waar zij het nodig vinden.”

Buy Water, Donate to Plan International

Plan International and Søstrene Grene start a three-year partnership with the aim of equal opportunities for all children, with an emphasis on girls. The chain believes that there should be more equality in this world. When everyone treats each other like sisters, the world will become a more beautiful place. With this in mind, the collaboration started, with part of the proceeds from cardboard waterboxes being donated to Plan International.
To be exact € 0.10 is donated to Plan International for every € 0.66 cardboard waterbox. In addition, regardless of how many waterboxes are sold, Søstrene Grene will donate at least € 53,500 in the first year. If more water boxes are sold, this amount will be even higher. Plan International will use the donated money where they find it necessary.

Bijenkorf Amsterdam Personal Shopping

Bijenkorf

The Bijenkorf (Beehive in Dutch) is the oldest and most high-end luxury department store in The Netherlands. One year ago they added a premium service: shopping with personal assistance. It was long overdue and about time for Mimi Berlin Blogger Team to finally shop with one of the personal shoppers at The Bijenkorf in Amsterdam.

Suits

We must say we had a lovely experience. First, our personal shopper, Ms Kranenborg, took us onto the “floor” in search of a suit for the male party of our Blogger Team. After a while the choice was narrowed down to 3 suits, which were brought to the special, very large and comfortable, dressingroom or so-called lounge (decorated entirely in pink and brown tones) on the second floor. During fittings the female part of our team got to sit down on the couch and eat cookies. After we decided upon the purchase there was champagne ànd an experienced team of tailors! Continue reading

Magasin Horaz New Department Store in The Hague

Magasin Horaz New Department Store in The Hague

A new and lovely department store has been opened: Magasin Horaz in The Hague. Why is Magasin Horaz special? The shop itself: it’s divided into separate rooms in a historical violin workshop (from Josef Joachim Vedral, violin maker) built in 1700. The goods: a mix of, well, everything; carefully selected by owner Horas Simanullang. Browsing the store you can feel the fun it’s owner has with filling his store, we think that’s very special! Magasin Horaz has a small selection of high quality goods like menswear fashion (Comme des Garcons, Van Slobbe Van Benthum) bespoke designer objects, (cook) books, interior design items, some top notch foods and sooooo much more. The back of the store houses a small art gallery with a new exhibition every two months. You can also have a drink in the “Red Room” and sit outside on the patio if you like. The shop has yet to have a “Grand Opening” but it is open already!

The stairs to nowhere are showcasing items from the store.

The Hague: the city where queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands live. Magasin Horaz is situated in the old part of town: the center in the Molenstraat, a stones throw away from the Royal Palace Noordeinde, that’s where the Dutch king works. Visit Magazin Horaz on Facebook
