Midsummer’s Eve

Tomorrow is June 21st, the summer solstice. The longest day of the year. It is always celebrated here in Sweden as “Midsummer”. The Friday closest to summer solstice is Midsummer’s Eve and it’s one of my favorite holidays. We pick flowers and make wreaths to wear in our hair, we dance around the midsummer pole, have picnic and sit outside enjoying the very very long day. In most parts of Sweden the sun hardly sets at all, we just get a bit of dusk and then the sun rises again. I love it!

To celebrate midsummer with you all we are going to have a sale starting tomorrow and running through the weekend: 30% off all floral scented products (pure florals and blends) and all orders/purchases gets a free sample of Forget Me Not eyeshadow. Flowers galore!

I will also update the blog tomorrow when we celebrate midsummer in Medevi (if my phone will cooperate), so it will *almost* feel like you are there with us!

Happy Midsummer!
