The ideaScandinavian International Fashion Week aims to showcase the art of fashion designers from all around the globe. During 3 days, the catwalk is open to innovative designers and brands, who stage their upcoming collections to international press, buyers and influencers. The catwalk also welcomes new talents, as we believe in opportunities and understand that everything starts with a dream. Held at the Stockholm City Hall, the event starts with 2 catwalk days, followed by a price ceremony on the third day. The idea is to recognize the work of the most outstanding fashion actors, such as designers, make-up artists and models, at the most prominent prize venue in Stockholm: the Stockholm City Hall. SIF, Scandinavian International Fashion Week Stockholm’s city hall, July 5th to 7th, 2019. This edition of the Scandinavian International Fashion Week, will be followed by annual events, including in each of them, the two driving factors at SIF: Fashion and Charity.
Everything starts with a dreamWe believe that there is plenty of talent worldwide, but we are also conscious that opportunities are limited… they are just not the same. Our dream at SIF, is to reach out to young talents in developing regions, with projects that range from providing training and coaching, to the unique opportunity of competing with their designs. Outstanding creations will be presented in the next edition of SIFW. Turning dreams into reality is our ultimate goal.

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!

Super thrilled to be working on my neck, décolletage (dec), and under eye circles. These luxury products from @hollywoodskin ( that I discovered during @stockholmbeautyweek ) were made for women by a woman and I’m looking forward to seeing results. I’m going to use everything in the containers and post a follow up video in 30 days. #hollywoodskin #stockholmbeautyweek #sisterhoodinsweden
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.
