Sillewho is a blog that badly want’s to be a fashion blog, but often is everything else. It is a community that allows a safe space and entertainment for young women, who knows life isn’t always a dance in amazing shoes and who loves (a lot) of self-irony. It is a continuous chat about life’s ups and down and a scientifically review of which bags goes best with the rollercoaster of life. Words are in focus while a young woman tries to figure things out, all while she writes down her thoughts along the way.
Sillewho is more than just a fashion blog, owned by more than just one crazy writer. It is a gathering of people who support, entertain and inspire each other. It is a place for real women with real problems and real cravings for high heels.
My name is Sidsel and I have the blog Fashionpolish.
I’ve worked in fashion since 2008. First as a junior fashion editor at Cover Magazine, later as fashion director at Soundvenue Magazine, freelance stylist and now as Head of Communications at the iconic Danish brand Mads Nørgaard - Copenhagen.
I launched my blog almost seven years ago and still love creating my own online unverse about personal style, beauty and interior design. One could say my style is a bit boring compared to the street style stars of today, but I like not to follow trends too much and focus on materials and wardrobe evergreens like a great cashmere knit or a clean A-line skirt.
I also had the pleasure of working as a fashion expert on national morning television Go’ Morgen Dk, joined several radio shows on P3 and Radio 24/7 and in 2014 I won an award for best personal blog at ’Modeblogprisen’.
Even though I spend most of my work life online, my heart still beats for and I’m very proud to have written the personal styleguide and book SMART with my fellow blogger Frede.

Let’s agree on one thing. No one wants wrinkles. We all have the aim of keeping us as young-looking as possible and with a tight face for as long time as we can. I have been brought up with a mother who cared a lot about her skin and she took great care of her skin, and she still does. When I was a little girl I remember thinking that I wanted to be like that – investing in skincare products and taken care of my skin.
Since I was 12 years old I started cleansing my skin every evening, using tonic water and a creme. Since then I have been adding on skin care products to my routine and one of my latest add-ons is eye creme. That is only because I thought that only women in the age of 40+ should use eye creme. But the idea of using eye creme from an earlier age is due to preventing the wrinkles from coming, instead of using the medicine when it’s too late. I believe it is about 1 year ago, when I turned 24 years old, that my mother advised me to start using eye creme. Then I explored the market of eye protections in forms of both eye cremes and eye serums. I am using the eye serum from Jurlique’s Herbal Recovery series and I really love it. The texture is a light gel and super easy to apply. I use it morning and evening just after my creme. The Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum from Jurlique is supposed to smoothen and hydrate the sensitive eye area. Jurlique’s products are organic and made on a farm in Australia, which makes me feel better about using it. The scent is very mild and floral-lavender-ish.
