I can’t wait to see what happens during the next 30 days. Expats really need to believe in self love. I am taking self love very seriously. I have never put myself first, or so it seems, except maybe for when I moved to Europe. Even still the partners in my life took priority as …
There was a place called Mona Lisa pizza in Frillesås for as long as mu Swede can remember. And that’s a long time considering his father built the summer house in Frillesås in 1964.
Believe me when I said it had seen better days by the time I came on the scene in 2005ish. Now it is gone. It has been transformed into Little Beirut. We haven’t been there yet but I’m willing to give it a try as I like Lebanese food.
I like to come and hydrate. Their flavored water always hits the pot. Weather it is the lemon water on the counter or the mint and orange water I discovered today, I rarely if ever order a beverage.
Pizze Reale does special orders, like switching out the kebab meat for falafel in my salad, which was huge.
The owners have spiffed up the exterior. I like how they are taking this restaurant seriously and creating something nice for the villagers.
The service here is excellent. The staff is friendly and the prices are fair and the portions are large. And they let me sit and use the Internet which is unusual here. People don’t come here to get on their computers, they come here to eat and drink. But when you have unreliable Internet at the summer house and have things to do that you can’t do on your phone, you come here and enjoy!
Nice things happen to me in Sweden.

Editor’s note: I tried Yolla when I was in Salisbury, England and my Swedish Calling plan didn’t work. I had to call my sister in the US and hopped on the hotel wifi. It worked. Like any other app reliant on the Internet, it will only be as good as your connection.
This sister in Stockholm did what the industry thought she couldn’t.
When I tried to get into Stockholm Fashion Week my emails were never returned. It was then that I decided to build something on my own that would give other designers like me the chance to show their work. — Sonja Andersson
Stockholm City Hall Cat Walk.
As a compliment to the cat walk giving talented and up and coming designers amazing exposure, Sonja included an award ceremony at Vau De Ville restaurant. The winners are the models Isabell, Janek, Djibril, and Fatima; and designers Ruslan Khvastov, Karima Alaoui, and Iracema Matias.

I Could Not Be More Proud
Not even if I had conceived and executed this event myself. I don’t know what you’ve heard, but Stockholm is not an easy town to conquer and Sonja put the nay sayers to shame. She booked the most prestigious venue in the City and probably all of Sweden.
She invited fabulous designers and they came. And they showed out. The models worked it. Sonja started something for designers like herself that no longer can be doubted. This will work. This worked. This is why I am so proud of Sonja. Whoot whoot!
Pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of bubbly and sit back and enjoy these photos from Cawa Media. I suggest putting them up on the largescreen TV for full enjoyment.
Depend was giving people life at Stockholm Beauty Week by doing brows, lashes and nails.
While there were several lovely technicians there I saw @marceljehrlander and wanted his services for my lashes. I wanted his lashes if I’m honest. And I wanted him to beat my face. But they weren’t providing makeovers, just brow overs, lash overs, and nail overs.
So I was well pleased with my lash over. I mean, how could I not be! These were the Depend Beatrice lashes. And not only did I take them home (well they weren’t going to put them on and than take them off. That would be cruel), I took home the confidence to put them on myself. Something I never had before. Thanks Depend and Stockholm Beauty Week! Big hugs Marcel. You know you are fab and so do I.
