This week

(this update contains collaboration with Holditbrand)

We’re on the last day of February already, can’t believe it. Time goes by so quickly. The hardest months of the year is done. Puh!
The week has been warm and sunny. We’ve been out walking more than before. So nice. The light outside gives us much energy.

Kristin and I released a new Jumper in FGL. It’s very nice and already very popular.

Finn was the cutest. Lots of smiles in the day. Had to steal Kristin photos cause I forgot my camera at work – how silly!
The sale in our shop is going strong still – ending this Sunday morning 8am. Check it out if you havn’t already.

Got updates from my friend Olof who’s in Japan working away with Holdit. They are very popular over there which is so cool I think. A company based in Varberg who’s popular in Japan.
Holdit’s new collection of cases Tokyo is inspired from just Tokyo.

I’ve been an ambassador for them since may last year. Right now on my instagram stories you can buy the cases I’ve been working with . I thought I can sell them and give money to charity. Helping others in need should we all do a bit more often – very important.

These are two of my favourites – if you would like to buy a case you help me raise money to children in Kongo to get a whole days treatment in the hospital for only 60sek. Thank you läkarmissionen for making a change in the world.

I’m hoping to raise enough money for at least 20 children.
Check my instagram for more pictures and information.

Lucca the wireless charger is my new favourite. I just put my phone on the Qi charger and it’s very quick to charge up, what’s really good as well it’s when the phone is 100% charged it stops giving your phone power which means – you save energy.

Thank you and good bye February – I’m very excited for what’s waiting in March.

Boråstapeter x Newbie

In proud collaboration with Boråstapeter.
Let me show you little Finn’s new room.
He has the finest of wallpapers from Borås tapeter.
From their latest collection Newbie Limited edition.
We’ve chosen the blue – forest & friends.

The series consists of four Easy Up wallpapers in limited edition, hand-drawn by Newbie’s own design team. Made in a sustainable and completely non-toxic production environment. Boråstapeter’s factory is based in the textile town of Borås, Sweden. Their wallpapers are completely free of dangerous substances and therefore a good choice in considering our little ones and the world they grow up in.

I’ve chosen to decorate with vintage frames and our cot we bought in a second hand shop in September. The ship you see in the photo above is my grand fathers first ship. He was a sailor all his life. 

This collection above is gifts from friends and family.
Jake bough the elephant and the pink rhino early in the summer last year as our first gift to little Finn.

In this collection you’ll also find bed covers, pyjama sets and accessories. Everything is limited edition. As usual, their entire collection is durable and all cotton is organic. You will find it online and in newbie stores .

The collection is available from today, a very beautiful collaboration between two conscious and strong companies. I’m very honoured working with both of them.

Lately + news

.

Snow! Winter is finally here. I do prefer when we have some snow and minus degrees. Otherwise it’s mostly grey days.

Our hens haven’t been outside for days, they think it’s too cold. Even Finn and I have stayed inside since the weekend. The poor boy had eczema last week which spread quickly almost all over his body, bless him. Thank god he’s better now.

Received a lovely flower bouquet from my friends over at Holdit. So kind!

My Mary knocked on our door Saturday night with a special delivery from Stockholm. Selma buns from my favourite bakery Vetekatten. I mean, how amazing is she? I felt tired and low on Saturday night because lil’ Finn has been upset for some time due to his dry skin.
To get my favourite cake on a Saturday night cheered me up for sure.

Krickelin in action shooting our new serie of skin care products.

Last Thursday we took the bus into FGL for few hours of work. Happy to say these products above have now launched.
Bare origin skin care. 100% organically pure, cold pressed or wild harvested ingredients. I love the hemp seed oil, it is a healing herbal oil that can help address dry skin with problems like eczema and psoriasis.

Multitasking away. Phone and photo moment right there.

Finn completed his first day at work.

Yesterday Holdit released their new collection of phone cases called Tokyo.
They got the inspiration from their trip to Tokyo last year and these are the result from the journey.

I’ve been working with Holdit since early last year, these cases might be my favourite so far. The black 3-dimensional surface is very nice. Reminds me of buildings in Japan.

This update is payed collaboration with Holdit & FGL store

Project Zero Waste

We started project Zero Waste in the autumn 2018 because we wanted create clothing that leave less fabric on the cutting room floor. 
Our belief is that as little as possible should be wasted – and when we have the power to make decisions of the production ourselves we want to make a difference.

Given that normally about 15-20 % of the fabric used to produce clothing ends up as waste, this project is no easy task. But with a bit of creativity and innovation we allow our creators to reduce their textile waste when cutting and printing. 

The darker shirt that Kristin’s wearing is dyed once more than the lighter shirt. About 9 months ago the Venice shirt collection got miss dyed so we had to do a change.
This is how Zero waste project started.


For us, it is only natural that what cannot be prevented from being left over should be recycled into small items – like hairbands and scarves. 

We also use left over fabric to wrap beautifully around gifts and packages in our store – with the final goal to waste zero.

This very day my partner in crime turns 40 years old! Big congrats on your day, her husband has planned the whole weekend for her!
I cannot believe Kristin been a part in my life since 6 years back already. Time flies.

We’ve done A LOT together so far – Travelled the world, started up a buisness taken about 1 million photos of each other, always been driven by lust – otherwise we get bored.Luckily we are the same when it comes to that otherwise I think it would of been hard. We’ve started a project that support women in need, social dinners, lectures and lots more. Wonder what’s next?
Thanks for all the special time together and enjoy your weekend!
much love, mir

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.
