Ett mjukare Varberg

Ett mjukare Varberg – which is about highlighting and talking about the challenges of today’s youngsters in our digital society and how we – adults and young people – can help create a softer Varberg to live and grow up in. You will gain new knowledge and inspiration and our goal is a full Arena Varberg.



Lucky us in Varberg area that Kristin Anna & Jonas wanna highlight some of the problems we got in the society. They invite us for a free night to take part of valuable information, book your ticket here. It’s free of charge so it’s available for everyone. Great initiative. So proud of them! Below you can see the program for the night.

Programs – during the evening you can listen to:
Hampus Nessvold – program manager, actor and artist – and one of Sweden’s foremost lecturers and current with the show “Take it as a man”, directed by Mia Skäringer. Hampus blends seriously with boundless humor and talks about macho culture, questioning gender norms and the importance of letting boys grow up to be gentle men.

A favorite duo in reprise from “A softer Varberg” at Brukstorget this spring. The magical duet they lake together, “Shallow”, we will never forget. Mollie Minnot and Land of Trees put tones on the evening’s theme and drill straight into the heart.

Baby björn

This is a payed collaboration with Baby Björn.
I can’t believe it has been over 6 months since we started our collaboration together.

Here, let me tell you how it all started.
One day I received an email regarding the collaboration. The amazing Baby Björn team were thinking it could be the perfect timing, as I was pregnant and they where hoping for pictures to be taken before our little boy was born.
I read this email 8 days past my due date… I was very happy for the email and replied straight away, basically wrote back saying ”if you think the bed could be here by tomorrow, it would be great, because I may give birth any second now!”.
Said and done, Finn’s bed was boxed and in our hallway by Friday afternoon, and luckily I was home to receive it.
It was the weekend before Christmas and it was possibly the darkest day of the year. Felt anxious that I wouldn’t be able to deliver the photos they asked for.

Saturday morning surprised us with it’s bright and warming rays so we were able to take the photos, with me still pregnant.

I loved every step of my pregnancy. Began to struggle with the lack of sleep.
Seeing these photos makes me so happy and emotional, that feeling just before having your baby is like no other.

and so little did I know here, what was about to come.

Great to get the final piece of the baby puzzle for Finn.
A bed for him to grow up with.
The excitement here was truly unexplainable.

Time flew by and spring was here, welcoming our baby boy. Already growing too fast. Finn is a happy, happy chappy, which we are so grateful for.

In the beginning we moved this bed into our livingroom and used it in the afternoon when he slept for a bit longer during the days.
It’s lite weight so very easy to move around and change its location.

It’s a lot to think of at the start of becoming a parent. The list is rather long.
A good and safe bed is near the top of the list for sure.

This bed is adjustable so when Finn starting to stand up we can lower the ‘floor’ so he can’t climb out. The fabric that covers the bed is made of a breathable mesh so you can have peace of mind if your baby starts to roll over.

Having a bed that lasts for a long time feels good.
Finn can use his until around two years of age.


Good luck with your purchase to your special baby, we got both the bed, their bouncer and Baby carrier from Babybjörn.
Good quality that last long and are safe is the key for sure.

Back in business

A long paus on the blog. I needed that.
To be honest I have been hard finding the right energy to post anything.
Even on my own instagram as well. Been stuck and feed up on posting things about myself.
Lots of things are happening around us and to document and share every move I havn’t really been up for it. But finally, today is the day for a new update.

I wanted to share my love to our company FGL Store and the people who makes it possible for us.

Few news coming into FGL Store this weekend.
Our best pieces so far, I think.
The pattern, the colours are something completely different to earlier.
Unreal amount of hours has been put into every piece.

14 different screens are used to get this amazing print.
6 artisans printed 100 meters a day, it took 15 days to complete only the printing.
Let me know if you can find something this well made from another store?

FGL is so unique guys, I need to pinch my arm 3-4 times daily to understand what we do here. We are ahead of everyone else.
Natural dyes, wooden blocks that are carved out to make our pattern,
By HAND ! The fabric is dried outside in the sunlight,
it’s a hands on production from start till finish.

Thank god for being a slow fashion buisness, who has no worries about being ”trendy” or work with ”spring” ”summer” ”winter collections. A long lasting wardrobe should be on everyones mind.
I get so tired and sad of all the sales around us. Daily texts and emails about 50% of the sales price?! sad isn’t?

FGL piecec are here to stay.
and you will see the same collection next year.and probably next year.
Easy as that.

Thanks to myself & my partner Kristin and our team in Jaipur that are very talented, we have something really unique.

The shirt and dress seen in the pictures above will be available by this weekend.
Read more about the production here.

My summer

Me and Finn are outside everyday. Not too hard now when the weather is unreal. Sweden is surely one of a kind when the sun is out. 30+ degrees and everyone is soo happy. The park is a home for everyone.
We started this morning with yoga.

Klarisha always makes each class extra beautiful. Today was outstanding. I was watching, and even started to cry. Tears of joy though.

The class ended with live music . Rafa. Thanks for giving everyone your time and music. So great!

The went by so quickly, it was busy from start till finish. Finn was happy as always. Loving every minute in the park our little man.

by closing time 2 girls came by.

too cute right?! Looks like best friends since forever.

Thanks for coming to Farfars.

We had some fun – and when the girl disappered around the corner I found their camera on the ground.
Thank god for social media nowadays, it’s not hard to get in contact really.
Camera will be back to her tomorrow morning.
If you wonder where I am this summer I’m in the park or in FGL store.

I think my blog will have a holiday for a few weeks time now. Can’t find any time to update, the little time I have spare I wanna enjoy as much as I can so I say,

Happy summer see you in august!

Var dig skelv

Look at the words where I’m sat.
‘var dig skelv’ meaning be yourself.
So cute & so true.
Lately I’ve been wearing our skirt like 24/7. And the other day I went to Kristin quickly to leave some parcels, she was wearing exactly the same outfit but in blue.
Ha!


Our little space has become so nice lately. Bring your family and play games outside our shops, perfect ! Jennie & I was working in our stores last week.
We said to have a coffee or two outside but it got to busy.

We did talk about this above thou, how important it is to be yourself.

Lisa got lots of new tee’s ready for you guys. I was lucky to get the green one in the front. They are available in kids sizes to now.

On Friday a lady tried on our lounge pants, and said how she was going to wear them later that same day and it crossed my mind I never used them as everyday wear before. I must say it was a hit cause few customers bought these and the Kåsa blouse on Saturday.

it was me & Engla working this day, we had 30 min that was quiet so we snapped few photos.
I’m Englas god mother and how on earth could she soon be 17! it’s fun working together, she’s soon that same age I was when I found out her mom was pregnat with her. Time flies!

Kärra skirt. So beautiful! Made of fine habutai silk.

The maxi dress have almost been with us since start. Such a ‘timeless’ dress. Perfect for every occassion.

This last pictures was a bit blurry, sorry! But I wanted to share cause this is Englas favourite set .
‘ I love this skirt and it’s perfect together with Varberg knit. 

True that.

Now it’s time to end this busy week! Hoping for a more relaxed week.
