Hello, I’m Susanna
A stylist, photographer, content creator & online educator who loves few things more than a slow Sunday with my family, coffee, painting and loud laughter. I believe saying yes to things that scare me makes me a happier person and less scared of making mistakes. I live in Bath, UK with my husband (aka Mr Nordic), our two children, our cocker spaniel puppy Laila and Ebba, our beautiful and very grumpy grey cat.
My blog name by shnordic came from my instagram handle shnordic, and it’s actually just my initials plus Nordic, as I’m originally from Scandinavia. Not especially original or thoughtful, I only chose it as I wanted to have a simple handle with no numbers in the name. It was my personal account for a couple of years, before I started sharing more intentionally about 6 years ago.
I started by shnordic as I had given up my career in a pharmaceutical research for family reasons and wanted to have something to do. We had just finished renovating our previous house and I had done a interior design course to help me designing our home, and a photography course to help me document it. I embarked on my social media journey and have successfully grown my following to over 900k+ followers across Instagram, TikTok and Pinterest.
While I certainly didn’t set out to become a coach when I started my content creation journey, I have found so much joy in sharing my knowledge and coaching other aspiring creators how to become influencers or market their services on social media over the last few years. First I was just helping a few friends out to set up their socials, then I expanded to the people who organically reached out for help via my DM’s, and in 2023 I’m making it official and opening my books for the first time ever for the everyone, so whether you are just starting out as a content creator or looking to grow bigger and better, join the waitlist below and I keep you posted when my new program (that can help you save time, save effort and get to your goals faster) is live!
I absolutely love my job and the freedom it gives me and being able to help others to achieve their dreams. I also love that it never stays the same, things are always moving and there is something new to learn!

SAMPLES & GIFTING
I am always very excited to try new brands and am grateful for the generous blogger mail that I receive. If you think that I’d like your product then please email me at email@example.com to request my postal address.
Please note, samples are for consideration only and there is no guarantee that a product will be featured unless previously discussed as a collaboration. I will always try to include the product in my content, when I genuinely love it.
All views are entirely my own. I occasionally post sponsored content here, always clearly marked and always at my discretion. I’m proud to work with the brands that I do team up with so I’ll always make a point to declare any paid work – whether that be a sponsored post or a social collaboration.
My blog also features some affiliate links, which means I receive a small percentage per click at no extra cost to you. I would never recommend a product I wouldn’t / haven’t tried, used or purchased myself.
