Save the dates

A lot is happening this spring over at FGL and I can finally share some of it.
Not long ago I posted on Instagram how a Saturday in Varberg can look if you come for a vist.

Varberg is a beautiful city located just by the ocean so come for a visit if you get the chance.
Here’s some tips.

  1. Okens BnB in the city center. Owned by my friend Diba and her husband. Such a cute place, with the yummiest of breakfasts! Located right by the train station. Right now there is an offer for February bookings 15% off the price!
  2. Kusthotellet. One of the biggest hotels in Varberg and this is located right by the ocean guys. Perfect for long walks, Spa and dips in the sea.
  3. The market is open Saturdays so the city center is more lively then, flowers local farmers food etc etc.
  4. Kallbadhuset. You can not visit Varberg and miss out on the famous skinny dip’ and sauna. Varbergs finest building for sure. Guaranteed to feel fresh after this visit.
  5. Brukstorget . A MUST visit obviously. FGL Store and many other shops are open between 10-15. There is a big play area for kids. Great restaurant for lunch or ”fika” cause we got two bakery’s.

The reason why I make this list is because I would like you to enjoy Varberg as the typical ”Varberg bo”

On the 15th of Feb FGL invite you to a YOGA & BREAKFAST event.

.Yoga in FGL is so special. It’s an unique experience for sure. I’ll make us a tasty breakfast afterwards as well so it’s a very nice morning together.
Tickets here.




That’s the first weekend I can recommend to visit Varberg.

& if the date doesn’t suite you above – there is another date in March.
Gong concert. A 2 hour gong concert with Bea.
14th of March at this 14.30 -16.00 – come around 14.00 to enjoy some tea before the show starts.

The gong creates a concert of various sound waves that help the body reach a deeper relaxation. The vibrations are curative and neutralize any imbalances at the cellular level.
Cannot wait.

Just love happenings that’s good for your soul.

Next up is: KUSTFOLK.

The past week we’ve been working with our Kustfolk Design Market.
4-5th of April so it’s a while till then but! Save the date.

Make sure you follow us at Kustfolk_Varberg to take part of what’s going on along the way till we meet in April.

All the best,

Mir

Just checking in quickly to share the news

FGL STORE has free shipping world wide till tomorrow night.

Finn Jake & I has had the flu over a week now. We’ve been so ill.
Still struggling to be honest, that’s why it has been no updates here.

Let me show you my latest pictures from work the past few days.

Love our grey polka dot dress especially with a tee.
After this photo was taken it sold out!
Let me tell you a secret; The Blue Polka dress is coming back this spring.

Dandelion dress is a life savior on the grey days, you feel like a summers day wearing it!


This photo was from Wednesday night. The shoes stole the attention, probably 40 dm’s about : WHERE did you buy them? I need.
If you wonder the same. They are from Zara.

Realizing when seeing these pictures I’ve been hot on the dresses lately.
Blooming dress is also sold out – but the white Kåsa blouse is still in stock.

Karro popped in for a visit. I asked to pick few pieces. Her she is dressed in Varberg Shirt & Läjet Blouse. Cool combo I thought.

Wherever you are in the world right now, it’s free to order! I’ll be packing away all day tomorrow. So keep me busy please.
You find me in the store between 10-14, Welcome!

Better decisions in 2020

Cheers to making better decisions in 2020?

Let’s talk about clothing for a minute or two here.
For over 6 years I have worked in the apparel industry.
Online alongside a physical store.

From the start, our focus has always been on helping others make conscious choices for their wardrobe. The big milestone for us was when we started to work with family businesses in Jaipur. Hand made clothing, made with love and environmentally friendly.
A process that doesn’t harm our planet or the people who working with our production. Clothing that’s good on your skin.


It feels so weird to even write about that above, how can clothing be poisonous? Is that possible. The more I read up about it, the more scared I got.

FGL Store, is truly special! But let me share how it is, being a small business, fighting against the fast fashion giants. It’s damn hard.

Since buying small quantities – using a weather dependable natural process does make everything more complicated and expensive.
Which is sad, it should be the opposite – we’re doing something good here.
FGL rarely has sales or discounts because simply there is not enough margin for it and don’t want to put more pressure on our team in Jaipur.

The fast-fashion industry has created a mindset of unhealthy expectations and over-consumption that can make it hard for ethical brands to survive.

FGL Clothing is transeasonal. Pieces you wear regardless of the season. Garments that are classic & timeless. That don’t follow trends and are transcendent of seasons.

Since 2013, I’ve seen change in peoples behavior when it comes to consumption. Many people are getting more conscious for sure.
I love hearing how many choose Quality over Quantity. ^
How they only choose Eco friendly made products. It makes my heart sing! Since I’m trying hard to create awareness regarding this matter myself!

  1.  Take Care of the Clothes You Already Own — taking care of the clothes you already own is one of the easiest ways to start building an ethical closet. Hand wash what needs to be hand washed, fold your heavy sweaters rather than hanging them up, replace the button that fell off. Clothes that are well taken care of last longer which means they’ll need to be replaced less often.⁣
  2. Shop Less. Choose well. sustainable clothing — don’t buy clothes that fit, OKAY. Instead be more selective when it comes to shopping and only buy things you 100% love. When you buy things you sorta kinda like you end up with a closet full of so-so stuff you don’t really like and consequently you always have nothing to wear. To fill the void, you shop more and buy more things you don’t really like. It’s a never-ending cycle. Break the cycle by buying quality pieces.⁣
  3.  Buy High Quality Clothes — regardless of the brand, or if you’re buying new or secondhand always buy high quality pieces that will last longer. How do you tell if something is high quality? The three most important things to look at are the fabric, the seams, and the way it’s tailored. The fabric should feel sturdy, comfortable, and evenly woven. The seams should be reinforced, neat, and lay flat against the skin without puckering.⁣
  4. Buy Secondhand — a great, budget friendly way to build an ethical wardrobe is to shop secondhand and vintage.

It’s tough building a fashion brand ESPECIALLY a brand focused on ethical and sustainable business practices.

If we want our favorite brands to stick around we have to support them, that’s why I need your help guys. Please share my post or fglstore.se


Would mean a lot if you could help me reach out to more people.
Tag us in your pictures. Like us on Facebook. Tell your friends about FGL.

I love you all for the support,

Mir



year 2019, let’s look back!

Last month of the year so I thought we could look back on what has happened in 2019 work wise.

First out was Holdit. I was an ambassador for them for 9 month time. This was my last post. Fun to be a part of a Varberg company!

In February I worked with Boråstapeter x Newbie to promote their new collaboration together . The collection was so nice, and soon there is a new collection coming.

Off course there was a lot of updates for my own business too.

The Peony dress was a success.

March came and it was a new collab this spring with Scorett. I love Scorett! They do an awesome job when it comes to sustainable shoes. Their work shoereuse is incredible! Also how they promote how to look after your shoes so they last for long.

April.

Round 2 for Scorett collaboration.

For almost 2 years I’ve been working with Schwarzkopf and Bon Bon hair salon in Gothenburg. This was the first time Finn was with me and lucky Karro was there to look after him.

When I see this picture of my long hair I miss it a lot. Blondme products are surely magic for a blond hair.

May came a long and it started to be warm and very green outside. LOVE May. I had the honor to share about Lindemans alcohol free wines. Which suited me so well. I rarely ever drink any alcohol anymore. Since being pregnant last year and don’t enjoy it anymore so being able to share about Lindemans collection of non alcohol wines was fun!

Started to shoot for Derome. The project is very delayed so you will so more of this by next spring.

Not every collaboration is shared on my blog, smaller jobs only at Instagram so just sharing them I posted on the blog.

June.
Already 6 month in 2019.

Arla products – About supporting fresh cream / milk since the cows are out and about 24/7 in the summer.

The first release of the collaboration with Baby björn came out. Had done this job already in February, the release was when the bed came out.

July! omg. We had the best summer due to this caravan. I spent everyday under the trees in Varberg with finn and Jake, since our little cafe was there. If not here I was in FGL. During the summer we extended our opening hours so if not in the park you found me in my store.

August.

September came and it’s my birth month.
I was mostly working with FGL. Tried to slow down with working too much.

October you beaut.

Smaller jobs posted on my IG.

Froosh was one of them.


Over at FGL I had Madelene to cover for my shift in the store most of my opening hours.
Great for a mom with a 10 month busy baby. & great cause Madelene wanted more hours in our store too. = WIN.

October was extra special due to a holiday to my fave place. Malta.

November froosh smoothies – twice! 100% my best smoothie that I always buy for an in between meal. Their smoothies are just fruits, nothing else.

December been few updates from our store FGL.
Still chance to get your delivery in time if you order tonight or tomorrow.

Look at these sets we put together. They been popular – perfect gift set.

& that was about it. 2019 been busy. I’m feeling grateful and happy about all collaborations I’ve done.

The last week of this year is going to be slow. Only family stuff and some FGL time, in a weeks time we fly out to England to celebrate Christmas.

Alright me lovers, talk soon. or next year!
All my love to you, thanks for following me here. xx

a little reminder

I’m on my way to work and wanted to remind you to place your order latest today to receive it in time for Christmas.
Guaranteed by DHL.


I posted a picture of me yesterday wearing our polka flower dress and got a lot of DM’s wondering were I bought the dress. From the store!

The photo is taken by my phone in the dark – so the quality ain’t so good. (camera kaput)
But never mind, it’s Christmas who cares about a blurry photo right? !

Marie is joining me today, FGL’s last pop up this year! Come by and hang out with us peps, fika for those who come. Also we have some fine prices on lots of products – you find them here.

Better put my favorite dress on and some make up, Finn kept us awake a lot last night sooooo I need to freshen’ up.
