Memories of days gone by... May!



My vintage pal Madelin, who also is a vintage wedding stylist, arranged a vintage wedding event at the vintage shop Beyond Retro here in Stockholm. ( hm... that was a lot of vintage! ;)



The always beautiful Miriam Parkman from Kafferepet was there and wore white.



As did her friend Britta.



Then there were "the party girls" - Åsa!



And yours truly with a sort of Mad Men-esque style :)



The wedding event at Beyond Retro - Stockholm!



What else? I went to a great seminar that spoke about the perilous and heartbreaking lives that women in the Democratic Republic of Congo are forced to suffer due to the country's highly lucrative natural resources ...

Key speaker and an old acquaintance was - the formidable Margot Wallström, Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, to the Secretary-General of the UN.

I went to the seminar as a spokesperson for Kivuvu - Supporting the Women in Congo. A small organisation (5 women) aiming at showing support to our sisters in Congo.



This is our loggo. You can find us on the web here (only in Swedish I'm afraid...) and on Facebook.

So, far we have applied (and received) money from various charity organizations and thus been able to give away over a 100,000 SEK (approx 13,500$, 11,000 €) to Synergie des Femmes - Women's Synergy for Victims of sexual Violence (SFVS)

A platform of 35 local organizations in the DRC working to prevent sexual violence, to assist survivors and to persecute perpetrators.

By the way... Kivuvu means "hope" in kikongo, one of the many languages in the DRC - Join us!



Apart from this me and Neo were just looking for... summer !

I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with COPD and I was beyond scared! My lung function test indicated 49% capacity. After having had the flu a year ago, the shortness of breath, coughing and chest pains continued even after being treated with antibiotics. I've been smoking two packs a day for 36 years. Being born without a sternum caused my ribs to be curled in just one inch away from my spine, resulting in underdeveloped lungs. At age 34 I had surgery and it was fixed. Unfortunately my smoking just caused more damage to my already under developed lungs. The problem was that I enjoyed smoking and don't want to give up! Have tried twice before and nearly went crazy and don't want to go through that again. I saw the fear in my husband and children's eyes when I told them about my condition then they started to find a solution on their own to help my condition.I  diagnosed with this COPD emphysema which I know was from my years of smoking. I started smoking in school when smoking was socially acceptable.. It was not known then how dangerous cigarettes were for us, and it seemed everybody smoked it. On searching, internet my husband saw a testimony of a brother, Nathaniel, how he was also cured of COPD lungs. By a herbalist doctor Akhigbe with his herbal medicine and the brother also wrote the doctor contact on the testimony. We contacted the doctor I was writing to and my husband was writing to him too. The doctor told us what to do and the next week I received the herbal medicine. It was really unbelievable after I finished the medicine. Dr Akhigbe herbal medicine is supernatural, that is how I was able to get rid of my COPD lung condition through the help of  Dr Akhigbe with his  herbal medicine cure. Here is his email   [drrealakhigbe@gmail.com}   He has the right herbal formula to help you get rid and repair any lung conditions and other diseases, his medicine will cure you completely and permanently with his natural organic herbs,We received the medicine through courier delivery service. I wish anybody who starts smoking at a young age would realize what will eventually happen to their bodies if they continue that vile habit throughout their life. It's a lesson I learned and never to forget in my life now I promise my God myself and my family never to smoke again.. All thanks to doctor  Akhigbe, the real herbalist doctor with natural herbs who have cured different people with their different problems.
Dr Akhighe also cured diseases like, HERPES, DIABETES, HIV/AIDS, COPD, CANCER,ASTHMA,STROKE,LUPUS,JOINT PAIN,CHRONIC DISEASES,PARKINSON DISEASES,TUBERCULOSIS,HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,BREAST INFECTION,WOMEN SEXUAL PROBLEM, GINGIVITIS, ERYSIPELAS,STAPHYLOCOCCUS,HEPATITIS A/B, QUICK EJACULATION, IMMUNOTHERAPY, GONORRHEA,SYPHILIS,WAST/BACK PAIN,PELVIC INFLAMMATORY, DICK ENLARGEMENT,HEART DISEASES,TERMINAL ILLNESS,SHIFT IN FOCUS,ATAXIA,COMMON COLD, HEART HEALTH, CROHN'S DISEASES,ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER,GRAVES DISEASE,HEARING LOSS, ANTI VIRUS,  INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS,LEUKEMIA,MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS,OBESITY,RABIES,SCOLIOSIS,INFLUENZA, POLIO,JACOB,ETC. If you are out there looking for your cure please  contact  dr Akhigbe  by his email    drrealakhigbe@gmail.com     or contact his whatsapp number   +2348025012866
God bless you Dr Akhigbe for your good hand work on my life.
