Skimbaco Lifestyle online magazine is owned by international lifestyle expert and business strategist Katja Presnal. Skimbaco is modern carpe diem. Skimbaco is the Nordic lifestyle of having the guts to go after your dreams, and finding happiness in your everyday life.

Not just sisu, hygge or lagom – all of them: Skimbaco.

We enjoy life to the fullest in the moment but know it can take a lot of careful planning to create a life you love. We know living better starts by focusing on wellness and health, but know it’s not as easy as reading motivational posters. We love to adventure around the world, but sometimes nothing beats being at home. We think everyone should take risks, but know sometimes it means you wear a shirt in a bold color to work, not ziplining over the rain forest. We believe in happily ever after and are ready to do more than just write to-do lists in pretty notebooks to take charge of finding our happiness.
I love to spread sunshine, share great ideas, and inspire you to live life to the fullest. I truly believe you can make lemonade out of lemons and that sometimes the worst that happens can be the best that ever happened. My passions are fashion, home deco, traveling, skiing and good food and I love sharing my finds with others. I created a lifestyle that let’s me do my most important job, being a mom, while building my own company and enjoying the things I like, for example traveling. I am proof that a girl can have it all, and I would love to inspire you to make your dreams come true too!
Katja Presnal, founder of Skimbaco


Skimbaco Lifestyle is living a smart, stylish, and sustainably happy lifestyle in your way. YOU define what Skimbaco means to you, we give you ideas on how to find it. Skimba is a Finnish slang word for skis/skiing and CO is for Colorado – Skimbaco doesn’t mean skiing in Colorado, but living life to the fullest, enjoying every minute of it and doing what you love. When you are in Colorado – ski, when you are in New York – go shopping or to museums; whatever you do, enjoy the moment, live life to the fullest and enjoy the moment. Think of skimbaco as modern carpe diem.
Our family has lived in multiple countries and traveled around the world, and people always asked me what was my favorite place. I always answered “all of them” – because ultimately it is up to you to live your best life. Skimbaco was founded in 2006 when we were living in Durango, Colorado, and when “skiing in Colorado” was our way of enjoying life. From there we moved to New York to Sweden to back to New York to Nova Scotia, Canada, and then finally to Finland. Katja Presnal
