Christmas stamp 2017 & TUBA's 20th anniversary

Friday, November 3rd

-Christmas Stamp 2017-
The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood when she arrived to the City Hall in Copenhagen. Here she was about to reveal the annual Christmas Stamp 2017. It was at patron of the Christmas Seal Foundation she attended the presentation. For several years the Crown Princess has participated in the revealing. Two years ago, in 2015, she attended along with her mother-in-law Queen Margrethe, who presented her own design, here. This year the stamps, here, are created by the Danish illustrator and author Michael Wettendorff, who also attended the presentation. After the grand presentation, a few speeches and many smiles the Crown Princess attended a reception. She took plenty of time talking to the kids, who have participated the Christmas Seal Homes' program including how to handle and prevent bullying and weight loss. The Crown Princess listened with great interest and the kids gladly told her about their stay at the homes.

-20th anniversary-
After having attended the annual presentation of the Christmas Stamp 2017, the Crown Princess attended a reception on occasions of TUBA's 20th anniversary. The reception took place in Skuespilhuset in Copenhagen. She was warmly welcomed at the arrival by Henrik Appel, who is head of TUBA. On a daily basis TUBA offer free help, therapy and counseling to young people between 14 and 35, who grew up in a home with alcohol abuse from one or both parents, here. In 2014 TUBA received the Crown Prince Couple's Social Prize, here, for their inspiring and incredible work to help young people in Denmark. It is not the first the Crown Princess has met with people from TUBA. In 2015 she attended a group therapy session with users of the fund. As in 2015, the Crown Princess had plenty of time listening to the young people's stories.

At both events, the presentation of this years Christmas Stamp and at the 20th anniversary reception, Mary was beautifully dressed in a purple blouse and matching skirt. Both pieces have been worn before a couple of times in the very same combo. Think the first time was in 2016 when she visited Moldova, here. Do you recall having seen the outfit before? Well, I can't get enough of the colours. A very suitable colour next to her skin and lovely brown hair. Nor the blouse or skirt have yet been identified and I still do not know where to find them. So, if you got an idea I'd love to hear from you. All ideas are welcome. What I do know is that she was wearing diamond earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen seen at multiple occasions, such as her grey calfskin clutch from Quidam. She matched it all with snakeskin pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Despite all these reused pieces, she was also wearing one brand new. Did you notice it? A few pictures show her from behind. You know what I'm referring to? Yes, you're right -her new hair clip. These specific hair clips have become very popular among Danish women in all ages. A friend of mine got one and I fell in love with it right away. Now I love it even more. It's not very expensive, so maybe a Christmas present to yourself? Let me know if you buy one. Think I probably need one myself.
