THIS Sunday (26th January), fashion writer and internationally renowned stylist, Lupe Castro (@mscastrorides), together with event organiser and owner of Slow and Co, Kim De Coster, will be hosting the most stylish event of the season, with “Out With the Old, In With the Green” – a New Year’s clothes swap, at Hotel Suite Villa María.
The future is all about sustainability in fashion, and swapping clothes means new looks, without the environmental impact. So, refresh your wardrobe for 2020, at this glamorous and stylish event, while also staying sustainable and on-trend, without buying into fast-fashion fads.
The concept is simple. You bring all those beautiful pieces you don’t wear anymore, then browse the curated collections of pre-loved treasures that are sure to up your style stakes, this coming year.
The fabulous designer and fashionista, Luis Oliveira (@osiul_osiodrac), will open the event, and countdown the swap entry. Whilst we are sorting out the rails for the swap, we will be keeping you busy with a handful of unique workshops.
Concepto Yoga will present their “Your Inner Mirror” workshop, followed by Louise Burgess of  “The Loft Nature’s Attic”, and Juliane Nendel’s workshop “Go Love Yourself”, that combines a bespoke aromatherapy demonstration with a personal development talk.
Participants can bring up to 15 items (preferably on hangers) to Hotel Suite Villa Maria, between 10am-1pm. We are looking for party dresses, bags, belts, skirts, trousers (not jeans), jumpers and coats. All items must be in good condition, and any pieces from brands such as Primark and Lefties, or those with bobbles, stains or damage, will not be accepted.
Location: Hotel Suite Villa Maria, Avenida de los Acantilados 38679, Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Clothes drop off and demonstrations: From 10-10.30am
11am: Concept Yoga – Your Inner Mirror
12.30pm: The Loft Nature’s Attic and Juliane Nendel – Go Love Yourself
1.30pm: Swap entry
Entry for press is free, but interested parties must RSVP. Tickets cost €25.

Cheap Flights to St.Petersburg, Russia

St. Petersburg is the place miracles are made. Today, Russia’s second largest city is known for its stunning tsarist architecture, fashionable restaurants, shopping and electric nightlife, all set along the beautiful Neva River. But St. Petersburg is also the site of some of the most pivotal moments in Russia's history, most notably the Siege of Leningrad.

One of the most awesome spectacles you can see once you've stepped off a flight to St. Petersburg are the “white nights” that occur in the city in the summer. Find cheap flights to St. Petersburg in June and July and watch in awe as the city glows from the prolonged twilight. The sun never drops far enough below the horizon to create the usual nighttime darkness, so the city is constantly lit up under the miraculous white light.
