Heaps of news

Hi,

Wanted to share my monday with an update.
Kristin and I have decided to meet up every Monday morning  to go through all that is needed for the week. It could be about sales, what we need to high light, new orders, events, stock etc etc.

This Monday was all about the sea. Our old favourite spot.
The nude place in our home town. ‘ Damernas ‘

We had lunch with a fantastic view. Off course coffee and a bun was included.

I’m dressed in an old favourite 10 pm in the colour teal.
We have had these dresses for few years now, but always a variation of  different colours.

What I think could be a new favourite is this knitted sweater.

Kristin really wanted a swim so she went in. I don’t know if she knows but after a dip her eyes becomes even bluer.

I was there with the camera, going through the photos afterwards was really funny. We were laughing till we cried! too nude on some to share.

This afternoon we snapped 270 photos, 12 dresses, striped pants, knitted sweater and this LA shirt with polka dots! A popular piece.

The majority of our collection is one size. We try to meet all sizes, but it’s hard as a small buisness. The stock you need to keep when you have  XS to XL is massive. Meaning a lot of money. Also a bigger range of many sizes is a risk.

We’re growing – many new costumers each day – which we’re forever grateful for. Working with ‘slow fashion’ and a more sustainable wardrobe makes me so proud.

On our way home from the sea I said, who made us rose hip soup last year?
It was so yummy. Malin I need your recipe please.

We will make that tomorrow at FGL store. You won’t miss out.
Probably will be seen in 3 channels, FGL store, mine & Kristins.

FESTIVAL DAY 2

A guy said to Kristin; I love what you two do, I love your store! Keep up the hard work!

Like how amazing is that when a person comes and say hello and give you feedback on your work. THANKS A MILLION!

This was day nr 2 for me at Way out west and I was pretty excited cause our Thursday was so much fun. By my side I had Kristin, we left soon after work. Closed our store at 1pm so we could make it in time.
First stop Max for a vegan meny – I had a collaboration with them this festival so that was our first todo.

Next up. Scorett Official. Krisin wearing one of their sneakers in the picture above. So cool.

Marcus Krunegård we danced to in the rain.

And we were lucky to find our Juice Malin by all these 30.000 people. We laughed, sang, danced and ate Churros together.

Little Jinder killed it on stage. What a star. Recently I havn’t listened to any swedish music to be honest, but seeing her perform live , made me think why? She’s now on my playlist.

LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.

I felt like an egyptian queen there for a while, my scarf become my head piece and it stayed there for the rest of the day.

Thank you GBG! so much fun.
Festivals are truly medicin to your soul. Laughter with friends too.

oh! our last show LYKKE LI.

No festival without rain and thunder. Lykke you will always be my nr1 girl.

My friends I had a golden weekend, a golden weekend.

WOW & GBG

hi,

our Thursday was one of a kind. Jacob and I went to Way Out West Festival in Gothenburg. So lucky to have the last room available at Hotel Eggers, a personal favourite of mine.
Back in the day I used to work for the hotels owners, all be it in their other hotel in Varberg.

Can’t remember the last time I had this many photos to share in one post before, but this is needed.

UNBELIEVABLY hot. Sun shining all day.

Wearing my most shiny sneakers from K.cobler  Scorett. Serious love!

Power banks must be the best thing for days like these, my battery is absolutely terrible. Check out Holdits selection here.

Artic Monkey fans were rather early, patiently waiting for 6 hours or more.

Soaked up the festival vibes by Briska’s air streamer. Cold non alcoholic drinks – pregnant and 35 degrees –  yes please.

Jake’s flip flop fell apart, not the best footwear for ‘WOW’, but lucky for him Scorett were on hand and it happened to be the release day off Reebok’s new sneaker.
Totally saved him, thank you so so much!

Many of you have asked where my shirt is from. Found it in Haga few weeks ago and it’s from the brand Elvine.

Way Out West is a very conscious festival. All food served is vegetarian or vegan.
Focus : sustainability.

Hats off indeed, this years festival must of been one of the best I’ve experienced at WOW.

Patti Smith was amazing, she spread love like never before. Apparently we shared the same hotel. Thought that was pretty cool.

Jenny Lewis we listened to a bit…
Nils Frahm – never heard before but real unique sound, liked him a lot.
St Vincet was cool and loud.
When they were playing I snapped my photos for my collaboration with MAX hamburger. I was promoting their Vegan shakes. Love my job! I read up on their project about how to be more climate savvy, really impressed. Read this.

Patti Smith – I was taken by her talks, such a cool lady.

Later on Jake and John were going to watch Artic Monkeys so I went and watched a documentary about Whitney Houston. Later on the girls at Aussie corner made me two braids. Free hair do! Thank you.

This bed was probably the best ever. Super tired legs for sure.

 

Room 127 had a balcony facing the street.

Best spot whilst enjoying a breakfast.

Tired today . I guess it was the heat. Couldn’t blame it on the beers this year that’s for sure.

Hotel Eggers is so beautiful. Many wonderful details, fun every time you stay over since each room is different .

Enjoyed time for some coffee and cakes before checking out.

100 hands at FGL

This is my job. FGL Store. Let me tell you a bit about the process.

How amazing to work with so many talented souls. I’m beyond grateful that these people come into our lives over 3 years ago.

I was browsing around on Instagram, seeing a post I thought was rather beautiful. Wrote a little email asking about a collaboration was possible, told some about our FGL store and how we work.

Few emails later, We received our first garments.
Years later we now workes daily together to get a stunning collection.

Dafu Devi. The mom of printing. She’s been printing for 45 years. Talk about dedication, and perfection.

The print you see on my shirt is exaclty the same as you see on the table, the print is made of clay.

Each family have their own reciepe.

After it’s been dried, the garments next step is colouring. We use mostly indigo flower since our shop is almost 90% blue products ..

Indigo flower, a powerful blue natural colour.

About 100 hands creating our products.
What they breathe, touch and absorb during our production matters . Sustainable fashion is not only about ethical wages and the environment ~ it’s about individual health.
From farmers cutters sewers ~ using natural dyes and working in a traditional way makes a huge difference to many.
Even for you ~ the buyer.
Thanks for choosing FGL clothing.

Changes

Today Jake and I moved out from our house in Bua, to our summer house up the road. The last couple of days have been very busy. Cleaning out drawers, getting everything ready for our summer guests. In between all this we decided on giving our walk in closet an upgrade. A total make over from boring white, to chestnut blossom.

For a while now, I’ve been looking for a desk on ‘Blocket’ (Sweden’s equivalent to gumtree), I almost drove down to the south of Sweden to buy one vintage because it was getting rather tight with time.
But one morning before opening FGL Store, I quickly stopped by a second hand shop in Varberg.

There it was…
The perfect size, the perfect everything. Love finding treasures like this, vintage shopping is so much fun. That same morning we also found a sofa, a cabinet, a table. Everything gathered under 10 minutes the final missing pieces to get a fully furnished house.

The space is long and narrow. When building this room it was meant to be a closet. We don’t really need all that space right now so I thought I wanted to make an office for myself. So much paper work nowadays so couldn’t be more perfect.

Green is such a relaxing colour and it’s stands for positivity. Like I mentioned in my previous update about wall paper, my love for Boråstapeters collection ‘In Bloom’ is just spot on. Here you see Chestnut blossom . This particular design also comes in a blue base for those of you who prefer a darker choice. Both are absolutely stunning.

The mint green cabinet once belonged to my nan, she painted it mint green back in the 1950’s. The inside is covered with yellow and green stripe paper. So cool.

Few hats from different countries.
I always seem to forget my sun hat when travelling, so the collection has grown. Nice to decorate your wall with to.

Our house has now gone through 2.5 years of renovation, finally it’s come to an end. Yay!

I think celebration is in order.

This is a payed collaboration between me and Boråstapeter.

Busy days

This week has gone by so quickly. Can’t say we have enjoyed the sunshine much, or any midnight swims due to the final fix on our house.

Sorry green house cause you look like shiet this year, but havn’t had enough time to look after you much, but that’s ok. You can’t do everything at once.

Love renting our house out during the summer cause we get things done. The things you know about- but don’t do until you get a kick in your ass. House is soon in perfection for the families that will rent it.

Other than that it’s high season at FGL Store . It’s a lot of emails/whatsapp call to India regarding the new sampling. Got an update just now regarding winter samples, exciting.

Black Frill skirt. New in.


Blooming blue dress -just released. Kristin on Venice Beach in February, 6 months ago already.

This Wednesday was a sales record and it’s never been that busy before ! So happy and grateful.
Yesterday I worked on my collaboration with Boråstapeter. I have one more room that has been transformed. I will share that during this weekend. Thanks for all the loving I got from our bedroom in bloom. THANK YOU ALL!

About this morning, I cleaned out all closets, cleaned our windows. Prepped the car full with things for the tip, not so exciting but it’s needed. Now I’m updating my blog and checking the email.

Everything will soon be ready. Still got a few hours to go before heading into the city to work with Kristin at FGL Store.

Enjoy your weekend peeps,

Carnation Garden

Earlier this spring I went to Kristins event with Boråstapeter, it was a release of their new collection  In bloom.

Right there I fell in love with many of their new prints. We got to hear  the story behind each pattern and that was very inspiring,  said from the start that Carnation Garden was my  big favourite.

Welcome to the new bedroom.

Jake helped me get it ready just in time.

Said and done – our bedroom is now in bloom .

All walls and our ceiling is covered. I’m really pleased how it turned out. I wanted to cover the whole room with this wallpaper since it’s so beautiful. But also to make the room bigger.

You can see more photos on my instagram.

This is a payed collaboration between me & Boråstapeter.

Thanks for visiting,

Jungle breakfast meeting

Jungle breakfast in my favourite park.
”Kärleks parken in Varberg”, Jucieandyoga is ran by my talented friend Malin.

So much love has been put into this little place, never seen anything like it. Malin and many others have yoga classes here every morning and through the whole of July. Classes start at 8.30 every day. I can tell you, yoga under the trees whilst listening to the birds, couldn’t be more dreamy.

All juices and smoothies are made with fresh organic fruits. Thank you Malin for helping make Varberg so beautiful. If ever in Varberg, J.O.Y is a MUST!



The other week I started my morning there myself. Delicious coffee, smoothie bowl and a green juice…perfect way to start the day. Together with Karin from Holdit, we had a little meeting here
. Love collaborating with like minded people. 



My favourite, obviously the Deco Cat (love everything CATS).
Many cases to choose from, this one had the thumbs up from the start.

I know their cases and other accessories can be found in Åhlens, Elgiganten and chosen stores around Sweden. I think it’s so cool that this brand has it’s base in Varberg! Must be something in the ”Varberg air” which makes the people so creative.

oh!  I need to mention one other thing….
We spent the weekend on our boat, 36h without any electricity. What saved me was this piece! A real life saver. More powerbanks to the people!

Happy days indeed.

This update is collaboration with Holdit. 

 

 

BUA’N Summer nights

The other day Jake helped me snap some photos of a collaboration with Lindex Officials.
I’ve choosen my favourites from their summer collection.

Since I got this skirt I have barely taken it off. Just so great to wrap around you.

We live just a minute away from the harbour. Nights like this – we can’t complain.

Our house is litterally behind my back.

Jake is alway taking the opportunity for a swim, but I’m useless. Always thinks it’s too cold for a dip and I’m very happy staying by the water. But this night I went in..

Bua the tiny village. A hidden gem in the summers for sure.

I should really stop saying; I don’t enjoy being in the water because afterwards it’s a great reward for your body and soul. Ok, I will try my best !

Laters,
