How Hair & Make Up Styling in Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress lead to helping women entrepreneurs in developing countries

The Internet is a powerful tool. Thanks to my website, Cherie Blair contracted my services for professional hair and make up  for her presentations at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona.

Whilst working with Mrs Blair during her stay in Barcelona, I found out about the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women which she had founded. The Mobile World Congress was one of her chosen platforms to present her foundation and explain it’s objective of helping women entrepreneurs in developing countries. Or in her own words…. “We invest in women entrepreneurs so they can build and expand their businesses and – in doing so – benefit not only themselves but also their families and communities.”

Mrs Blair also gave me details of their mentoring programme and the fact that there are so many women out there, dreaming of doing what I do, but without  our help, will not be able to make their dreams come true.  It made me realise that I am very fortunate as I love doing what I do so why not help other women, a lot less fortunate than myself, achieve their dreams, goals and amibitions by sharing my experiences with them to offer some inspiration, support and motivation.

The “Mentoring Women in Business Programme” matches women entrepreneurs in developing and emerging countries with mentors worldwide.  The programme lasts for 12 months and revolves around twice-monthly online meetings (using Google technology).  Since I really liked the programme and I really wanted to help, I applied directly after my meeting with Mrs Blair to become a mentor. I’ve now been accepted into the programme and am looking forward to the exciting, interesting and, for sure, rewarding adventure in front of me which I’ll be blogging about as I go along.

If you are interested in finding out about the progamme, and would possibly be interested in becoming a mentor, please visit:

Have a wonderful day!

First wedding in Barcelona of the season

It feels so good to be back to another promising wedding season! Since I’m getting more and more requests from Norwegian brides that want to get married in Barcelona, today’s post will be about Kine, a Norwegian bride. It is very popular to get married in the Norwegian Sea Church ”Norska Sjomannskyrkan” and Kine is one of them.

Two-people wedding

So in March, I officially started the new wedding season and my first weddding of the year was a lovely couple from Norway Kine and Kristian that had decided to get married in Barcelona via Sjomannskyrkan. They had never been in Barcelona before and they had found my web and my wedding services on the Internet. They wanted a different and intimate wedding here in Barcelona, only the two of them.  Back in Norway the plan was to have a big wedding party with family and friends.

The Wedding Look
Kine wanted a natural wedding look with soft make up. The hair, she had it pretty clear how she wanted her hair fixed and that always helps when it comes to the actual styling of the wedding hair. She wanted a high up hair do with movement and she had bought a tiara that gave that special wedding look.

She looked very pretty, I must say. Kine seem to have agreed since I she dropped me a few lines just after the wedding “ I just wanted to thank you once again for doing such a fantastic job on my wedding day! Both the hair and make-up was absolutely perfect.”

All wedding beautiful pictures are taken by photographer Edwin (highly recommended!) and you can see all photos from the wedding by clicking here.

What a lovely way to start!
