Who doesn’t like a day at the spa?
I certainly do. But affording it is another thing. The good news is that you can get world class spa services at Gilda Skolan at fantastic rates because the services are performed by advanced students.
The bad news is that I didn’t know about this in 2008 when I first took up residence in Stockholm. Or know that there is a school in Gothenburg and in thee largest city in the south of Sweden.
I discovered Gilda Skolan as a blogger at Stockholm Beauty Week when they gave me bold brows.
I HIGHLY recommend them for women, men and teens. In fact, I can’t wait to go back.
I am doing self care like I mean it.
I know you now how stressful expat life in Sweden can be. For me it is the constant nag of missing my precious family and dear friends, the navigating the nuances of a society I have adopted, and the endless waiting for everything to really and truly feel like home.
I had such fun at Stockholm Beauty Week as a blogger discovering new products. For me, one new discovery was Hollywood Skin. And I’m so glad to be introduced to these woman-created luxurious products. So, here we go!
I encourage you to practice self love too. Feel free to use my referral code for Hollywood Skin. I’m going to do this expat thing with love.
Stockholm Beauty Week had its own theme song and dance number. Seriously.
