dress up with FGL

This weekend we’re having a great price on all our shirts at FGL Store. 20% off Friday till Sunday.
We said to high light our shirt collection cause it’s perfect to use in your everyday wear, together with a skirt or jeans.
My favourite right now is the blue polka dot shirt.
These are dabu printed, which means printed by hand with a wooden block dipped in clay to make the print. I mean, how many clothes are made in a traditional way nowadays? Basically none.

The other day Kritin went to see Lisa in her studio.
Lisa is one of the coolest cats I know.
Talented, smart, brave and 300% cool. Very inspiring.
In fact all of these ladies mentioned in this update are true motivators the whole bunch. Creatives & fun souls . Happy to have them in my everyday life.
Lucky us LISA just opened up Clart Studio together with Jennie and Frida next door to FGL. CHECK THEM OUT HERE.

We are so proud of our whole collection at FGL. Everything is surely made with a lot of love and effort. Every piece is hand made.

In this picture you see our newest member – Peony shirt. It’s amazing, big peony flowers. Comes as a skirt as well, and soon an amazing wrap dress.

Habutai silk shirt in Blue.
Made of the finest silk. Not many left – so grab one before it’s to late,
last chance !

At the moment I’m working from home with FGL. Getting lots of updates from Kristin on whats happening in the store, right now we just recieved new jewellery boxes and a whole serie of skin products. I’ve organized the shipping process for our summer collection. It’s getting shipped by boat from India today accually. Very excited for all news to come.

Tomorrow we have Jenny and Jens with us again at FGL, during the whole day, from 15-18.30 it’s kids work shop! it got booked up so quick, lovely to see the big interest.

Check Kristin’s full interview with Lisa.

Happy weekend to you all! xx

When in Varberg you need to try out a cold dip in the sea and a sauna at Kallbadhuset, this is also included in your price – as well as a lunch at Verket located just by FGL Store.

Look after your hair

My hair has never been this blonde before.
My hair has never been bleeched so many times either.
My hair has never ever before had such good quality.

When choosing quality products that’s good for your hair – you can tell the difference.
It took me so many years to realize that.
I only need to wash it once a week, before I used cheap shampoo few times a week.

Which is not good for your wallet, environment, or your hair.

I give thanks to my hairdresser Ida at BonBon. & to the Schwarzkopf team who has amazing products.
As I said before I’ve been a hair model for few years now and gone through all kinds of different colours,

Pink, blue, purple, grey, green, white.

What’s different this year is that I’ve been really good taking care of my hair.
Using the right shampoo and conditioner  I need for my hair type. ( see my update regarding what products I’m using) 
Ask your hair dresser for advice if you need help. They will give you the best tips for what your hair needs.

Once a week I use a leave in conditioner.
& every day the fig oil. ( read more here )

Last week I got to try out the new BC Fiber Clinix.
It’s a salon exclusive treatment and has Schwarzkopf Professional’s most powerful repair technology ever. Thanks to 5 different boosters, that come within the BC Fibre Clinix assortment, the treatment is customized after your hair needs. In my case Ida used the Hyaluronic Moisture booster, which, as the name says, boosted the moisture level in my hair.

The shine and the strength you get is incredible.

Let me know what you think when you treat yourself next time –
It makes such a difference.

Enjoy.

Things to look forward to

Hi team,

Just thought I make a quick update about what’s going on in Lovely FGL Store right now.

-Today our campaign ends – on our most sold dresses. Worth checking out. 

If you thinking about christmas gifts already I know a workshop with Lisa Burenius would be a great experience to give someone you love. That includes yourself as well!
A creative afternoon together with us in FGL, you get to paint without no rules. If you think of it, we as grown ups never do stuff where it’s ok to just let go of all expectasions.

Lisa guides you through how to become a artist. It’s something special when you can be creative,
just be yourself and go with the flow. Such an inspiring afternoon together.

We have had this work shop for four occassions and it has given me so much joy each time.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR CREATIVE HEALTH –

Another thing I want to share with you is our Utbildningsdag, a day full of insights.

Kristin and I share our story on how we built our buisness together. 5 years as we speak.
We started out as a pop up shop just before christmas in 2013. But it sure has been more than a pop up.

We have invited lecturer Emma Gunnarsson from Finnveden Säljkraft,
Emma Gunnarsson is an inspiring and great lecturer who will tell you about the different personality types found in society.
She gives knowledge and lots of energy and makes you  think about how you can handle different personality types. Emma also works as a moderator throughout the day.

Hanna Wendelbo is a designer with special expertise in pattern design, she will share how she works and she has a lot of experience from years back, “high and lows” and how to became better in what you do.

We will have plenty of time for smaller and larger discussion groups, work around specific topics and by the end of the day we will have a dinner together. I’ll promise you won’t regret this day, it’s so for filling, many of us in this industry work mostly on our own – get together with likeminded souls is so good.

If you work with social media today and want to join us for this day – press here. Few spots left!

Now it’s time for a Sunday in the sunshine. Enjoy!

November already

Can’t believe how fast the months passes by nowadays, getting closer and closer to our due date.
Still got a lot of things to get ready I think? If you could get ready thou?

My week started out pretty fantastic. Press release off the new brand Alvalinen.

We had a breakfast together in Palmhuset and listened to Dibella who come all the way from Bangalore, India. He’s a CEO of a big factory who works with Organic cotton.

He gave us an insight into indian cotton industry. It’s deeply sadening, but very important.
I enjoy hearing the story behind the brand. Their values are important to me. We shared it all. Kristin & I work in the same way and driven by making a change for people .

The styling behind these pictures is Charlotte Ryding & Anna Furbacken.

Over to my Tuesday.

Spent my day at FGL store. Always a pleasure.
Tuesday todo: release day on our newest member – Polka dot shirt so now there’s a whole set.
Skirt, duster & shirt. Amazing all together.

When I sit to much by the computer my stomache aches.
So last night I was resting a lot on the floor. The perks of being pregnant.

I’m getting deeper into my pregnancy, so Wednesday was a day of relaxation.
Found old pictures and realized I look a lot like my mom when she was pregnant with me.

Thursday – Was lucky to be out all day in the sunshine.

Watching our new doves being outdoors in the wild for the first time . They are so stunning and funny.

Thursdays are always extra special nowadays cause baby goes into a new week. Welcome 35!

I finally got my girls up again.  Two from Lisa & one piece from Jenny.

Friday .
This morning it was breathwork and breakfast at Holdits office. What a start on a Friday!
A special thanks to Michelle who made us the honor with a yoga Nidra.

Lisa & Kristin.

I’ve been an ambassador for Holdit for a while and wanted to show my friends Varbergs finest office space. A get together over a breakfast with likeminded souls are always fun! You always leave the table with new insights and ideas.

It must be something with Varberg and all creative minds in the city.
So many succesful buisnesses in one place. Lucky to call many of them my friends.
Holdits office is having a fantastic view overlooking the harbour.

just after our morning I went to FGL store to met up with a girl for an interview. We need some help in the shop the next couple of months . So fingers crossed we find someone special .

Before this work week ends I have one more shift to do. FGL between 11-15 o’clock.
Don’t miss out on our campaign right now 20% Off on our dresses.  
Ends tomorrow night.
