Under construction

Lucky the weather is crap this weekend since I have to spend the entire weekend in front of my laptop working on the SWEA website. The deadline is at the launch on February 17th so I better speed up.

Don’t say no, say how

No Comments SWEA, Typically Swedish

Home after a very inspiring evening at the kikki.K store in Melbourne Central where it all started back in 2001. Kristina shared the story about how, the now very successful, business started. There are now 83 stores around Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Cool indeed and great to meet some more SWEA women as well. Apparently the big turn up at the launch and great interest in SWEA is a hot topic around the whole SWEA organisation around the world (läs om lanseringen HÄR). Way to go Melbourne! 🙂

First SWEA activity

No Comments SWEA

I’m on my way in to the city to attend SWEA Melbourne’s first activity – a company presentation by Kristina, the founder of kikki.K.

I’ve loved kikki.K ever since I first discovered the store back in 2009 and I’ve read a lot about Kristina and her entrepreneurship. To actually be able to meet her in real life and hear her story on how kikki.K came to be the success it is today is a little exciting.

SWEA launch

2 Comments SWEA, Typically Swedish

I went to the Swedish church in Toorak on Wednesday night for the launch of SWEA Melbourne. 70 (!) Swedish women in all ages between 18 and 70 something, everyone with a different life story. Some have, just like me, only recently moved here and others have lived here for years. Some here as students or nannys others more permanently living here. I think SWEA is a great network which I would love to be part of and I look forward to getting to know more awesome Swedes, like Emmy who writes Bortabrabloggen for example. We’ve only been communicating through the blogs and via email before and then on Wednesday we finally meet.
