Blog'nhagen FINALE!

Dry up those tears, I know it's tough to see the end finally arrive. Blog'nhagen part 4 starts....now!
After a tour of Ibsens hotel in the afternoon we headed across town to A XOCO by Anthon Berg, a chocolatier. Jesper Rahbek is the man behind A XOCO and he was so kind to give us a lesson on how to make flødeboller or as he called them "foam kisses" in English. Flødeboller are super Danish: a marshmallow type cream on top of a cookie or marzipan and dipped in chocolate. Then you can get super crazy and add toppings like strawberries or pistachios. Jesper even revealed to us his secret recipe. Gasp! You can also do a class at their Chocolate School, which I would highly recommend.
We started out by making the cream and then squeezing it onto the marzipan pieces. Some were a little more successful than others...I'm not naming names. 
Jesper was super patient with us. We were like kids in, uh, a candy store.
 While some of us remained classy, like Thea.
Then it was off to Antom Dam, a furniture and home design store in Frederiksberg.
 where we found out that pillows can be used for the sofa and for your face.


The owner was so kind and provided the prize for the winner of the Love My Guide tour competition.

Lastly, off to Sticks 'n Sushi to pick up our dinner to take to our picnic.

Then off to our last stop of the evening, the blogger's meet-up at Islands Brygge Havnebad
 Where we pretty much devoured our food. Anne has the perfect model hands.
It was GREAT fun to meet up with other bloggers and supporters from around Copenhagen. We were joined by the people of Everplaces and other friends who I had met at The Hive in May.
 JJ was the winner of the Love My Guide tour and came home with a VIPP pedal bin. I'm quite jealous.
I was so thrilled when Juliane of Froken Skicklig came with a tart in hand and hand-picked strawberries. 
Well, I believe that's it! We had such a great time and were so thrilled to see so many people at the meet-up. I wish I had more pics of everyone. The rest of the pics are going up on our Facebook page. Stay tuned for more Blog'nhagen coming to a city near you! And if you haven't had a chance to see the Blog'nhagen video, you must do so!

Thank you to EVERYONE involved! For the bloggers for taking the time to come and share the day. For the sponsors for allowing us to take over your place for a bit. And a big thank you to At Hermans and Ferm Living for providing goody bags. And a thank you to Maria for being my partner in crime. We've been trying to find a project to do together for ages and I think we made the perfect team.

And another thank you to Ashley of Chasing Heartbeats, Jenny of Dos Family, Thea from Sister Mag for letting me use some of your photos!

I've found so many interesting bloggers from Copenhagen lately that I wish I was there to meet them in person. From your posts about Blog'nhagen, it looks like it was quite an adventure.

So fun, Brittany! I must say, I'm a little sad that this is the finale. I've been loving all these photos!
