Use Yolla to holla at loved ones in other countries.

Have friends and relatives living abroad? Waste too much money on calls overseas?


Meet Yolla – calling app that is different. Our calling rates across the globe are cheap, plus we feature a flexible bonus program, while calls between Yolla users are always free.

Only for Stockholm Expat readers: use STOEX promo code to get extra $3 on calls!

Yolla is a mobile app for iOS and Android which serves to make international calls to any mobile or landline phone. Unlike other apps, Yolla keeps your phone number, and friends and family members you are calling always know it’s you.

Get Yolla and start calling smart:

Please apply the promo code STOEX right after you install the app 🙂.

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.

Sonja A Andersson

She organized the first ever Scandinavian International Fashion Week in Stockholm and the catwalk was the world famous City Hall! KUDOS Sonja A Andersson!

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

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.


Never Underestimate the Power of Lashes

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.

Hollywood Skin

I’m giving Hollywood Skin a Try Against my Under Eye Circles.

I am using Hollywood Skin, skin care made in Sweden, to target the dark circles under my eyes. I discovered them at Stockholm Beauty Week and and giving them the full jar test.

Here’s my kick off. In 30 days I’ll make another video to see if the appearance of my under eye circles has improved.
