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.

Dry Skin Relief with an Evergeticon Facial

Super dry

One day I woke up and my skin had changed. It went from pretty normal to super day. It seemed nothing I had on hand could quench it. I washed it with coconut oil. I used baby bottom cream. I was still dry.

Evergeticon products

Then came Stockholm Beauty Week and my chance to get a facial with Evergeticon’s products from Crete.

My expert from Villoeco.

I was treated in an open space with sunlight and even though it was in the midst of the rush and excitement of Stockholm Beauty Week I was immediately transported to a serene place. The smell of the products was lovely.

These were used on my dry skin.

For 15 minutes is was in Crete.

Lovely technique.

I was on that beautiful island when I closed my eyes and surrendered to the luxurious products melting into my skin. I think I even feel asleep during the 20 minutes.

Evergeticon
Juicy results.

The juicy results were obvious. Quenched, glowing skin that lasted for the entire day. I was super soft and satisfied. I was no longer dry. Results! That is what Evergeticon gave me. I can highly recommend it for super dry skin.
