Lollapalooza Stockholm is the seventh Lollapalooza in the world and is the only one in the Nordics. The world-class international festival is in the heart of Stockholm, just by the water at beautiful Gärdet. For the first Lollapalooza Stockholm, we had over 56 000 fans from all over the world – all a part of the Lolla Family. Join us in 2022 for the second edition of Lolla Stockholm, and three days of Swedish summer magic!
If you don’t have your ticket already, it’s not too late to get it today. I mean, if you have ANY interest at all in skincare, haircare, nail care, fragrance, and makeup, these two days are an absolute must-attend for you.
When I attended in 2019 it was an easy walk for me to the venue. This year, I’m traveling from one coast to the other to be there in person. I can’t believe how excited I am to see my favorite brands like Scratch of Sweden as well as explore the French Pavillion. Mais oui!
And there are dozens of other brands with new ones getting added all the time. I went to the website today to double-check that I registered for all the workshops I didn’t want to miss only to see new vendors!
This is when I wish there we two of me because I simply won’t be able to see everything there is on offer. I will be running around like an excited teenager so I’m making sure to have on my comfy shoes.
When: May 17 and 18, 2022
Where: Norra Latin on Drottningatan 71 b
Hours: Tuesday 11 am – 8 pm and Wednesday from 9 am – 7 pm
Cost: 100kr for BOTH days!
Be sure to buy your ticket today (biljett). I promise you will not be disappointed. You’ll only wish there were more days, more of you to go around, and that you could stay forever.

Kids’ teepee tents are a super cute and stylish addition to their bedroom or play area. Not only are they cozy and exciting, but they provide a space that your kids can use in several beneficial ways.
A kids teepee can also offer your kid a special place to read, create art, or retreat from the world. They also inspire independence and imagination, as your child will likely use it to play “house” by themselves, with siblings and friends.
Store-bought teepee tents are nice, but they’re costly. You also may not find one that suits your child’s room or the colors they like. So why not make your own? Don’t worry; it’s easy! Keep reading to learn how to make a kids teepee tent that your child will love.

I Color Myself Different is Colin’s latest book!
Colin Kaepernick And Scholastic Announce Multi-Book Deal For Children’s Books
First book, “I Color Myself Different”, scheduled for April 2022
Additional books with Kaepernick Publishing to follow
NEW YORK, NY—July 15, 2021— Colin Kaepernick, renowned activist, change-maker, and athlete, and Scholastic, the global children’s publishing, education, and media company, announce a multi-book publishing deal. Brokered in an exclusive offer from Kaepernick Publishing, the agreement includes World rights and all languages for both print and eBook formats. Andrea Davis Pinkney, VP and Executive Editor, Scholastic, will edit the first project, a picture book illustrated by Eric Wilkerson, to be published in April 2022.
“Colin’s reputation as a thought leader precedes him, but it was also clear when we met that his mission and purpose were very much aligned with Scholastic’s,” said Debra Dorfman, VP and Publisher, Scholastic Global Licensing, Brands & Media. “We knew instantly that we wanted to share his stories, which will be impactful messages of identity and belonging for Black and Brown children.”
On April 5, 2022, Scholastic will release I Color Myself Different, a picture book inspired by a significant childhood memory of when Kaepernick first documented that he was different from his adopted white family. During a kindergarten exercise on drawing families, Kaepernick remembers putting down the yellow crayon he had been using to draw his family and picking up the brown crayon for himself. This moment crystallized for him the differences marked by his adoption, and how acknowledging those distinctions could encourage us all to be more accepting of ourselves and each other.
“Colin Kaepernick’s inspiring story, with themes of identity, race, and self-esteem, will resonate deeply with all kids,” said Ellie Berger, President and Publisher, Scholastic Trade Publishing. “We are privileged to bring this work to young readers around the world for the very first time.”
“This story is deeply personal to me, and inspired by real events in my life. I hope that it honors the courage and bravery of young people everywhere by encouraging them to live with authenticity and purpose,” said Kaepernick. “I’m excited for Kaepernick Publishing to be collaborating with Scholastic on books with Black and Brown voices at the forefront. I hope that our books will inspire readers to walk through the world with confidence, strength, and truth in all they do.”
Holder of the all-time NFL record for most rushing yards in a game by a quarterback, Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” in 2016 to bring attention to systemic oppressions, specifically police terrorism against Black and Brown people. For his stance, he has been denied employment by the league. Since 2016, he has founded and helped fund three organizations—Know Your Rights Camp, Ra Vision Media, and Kaepernick Publishing—that together advance the liberation of Black and Brown people through storytelling, systems change, and political education. Kaepernick sits on Medium’s Board and is the winner of numerous prestigious honors including Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope honor, GQ magazine’s Citizen of the Year, the NFL’s Len Eshmont Award, the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, the ACLU’s Eason Monroe Courageous Advocate Award, and the Puffin/Nation Institute’s Prize for Creative Citizenship.

While I’m desperately waiting for Season 2, too afraid to research if there will even be a Season 2 of Law & Order Los Angeles, I am mindful that I wouldn’t be able to binge-watch my US or UK faves without my NordVPN.
And I don’t do anything else online without using NordVPN. Anything less is just negligent these days. If you’re not using a Virtual Private Network, get one at least for when you are making financial transactions.
