Home About



Skimbaco Lifestyle online magazine is owned by international lifestyle expert and social media strategist Katja Presnal.

Skimbaco is modern carpe diem.

We believe in silver linings and happy endings, but know sometimes it takes a lot of work to get there.
We live for luxury and first class flights, but know sometimes you just need to sell your purse on eBay or sleep on a friend’s couch just to make the travels happen.
We enjoy life to the fullest in the moment, but know sometimes it takes a lot of careful planning and smarts to create a life you enjoy every moment.
We know living better starts by focusing in wellness and health, but know it’s not as easy as reading motivational posters.
We love to explore and adventure around the world, but know sometimes nothing beats being home.
We think everyone should take risks and feel adventurous, but know sometimes it means you wear a shirt in a bold color to work, not ziplining over rain forest.

Owner of Skimbaco Lifestyle, Katja Presnal

I am a photo-taking-jet-setter.
I am a cinnamon-bun-baking-housewife.
I am a marketing-loving-business-woman.
I am a “let’s-jump-some-more-on-the-couch-kids”-mother.

I love to spread sunshine, share great ideas and products, 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 a proof that a girl can have it all, and I would love to inspire you to make your dreams come true too!



Skimbaco means living life to the fullest; enjoy the moment, live well and spread sunshine to people around you. Skimbaco Lifestyle is living a smart, stylish and sustainably happy lifestyle in your way. YOU define what living life to the fullest and Skimbaco means to you, we give you ideas how to find it.

Skimba is a Finnish slang word for 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.
