Today

Right now doors are open to our new neighbours – CLART STUDIO.
Owned by our coolest friends;
Jennie – Kollijox art.
Lisa Burenius – art and more
Frida Eklund – ceramics
All these talented ladies under the same roof.
They have a ‘sneak peak’ today and next weekend, open between 11-15 o’clock. The start of next year they are moving in full time. 

In our FGL we have Marlene – Fruvintage with us today and
Marie- Axkonstochkeramik
Marlene selling her tasty coffee with a purpose – love how some of the profit supports Läkarmissionen. People who help others in need are my favourite people. Thanks for having the biggest heart Marlene. The coffee she sell is the best gift for this christmas. 

Marie – a warm, funny, creative soul to. Always loved her way of creating artwork.
At FGL we sold her blue cups back in the days, and we still get emails regarding these.
Now you can buy them through her, today at FGL or at her shop.

We put together a set of pyjama pants+shirt and robes+pants, almost sold out, few piece left. Useful for all agees – a comfy pyjama set could be something everyone loves.


Bea from Blomsterbaren from next door came in to help us trying our new dress that needs some final adjustment. 
When it’s 100% I think this could be our finest piece in next years collection.

Kristin loves Doris. She is so damn cute I don’t blame her.
Always gets heaps of cuddles like this, she’s a real queen and knows how to look extra cute while we eat. Treats for Doris if she’s lucky.

I’m not in the store today, resting in our sofa.
Will decorate little bit more and might do a quick visit in to the city, I woke up at 2.00 am last night so starting to feel tired now. The rain kept me company till 5.00 am and after that I feel a sleep again, till 7.00 .

NEWS

hi team,

Wanted to update you with the latest.

Bump is now 97.1% baked. Time flies and soon he’s here! Our little mini.

Visited the hospital yesterday and we can’t be more ready now I think.

Work wise I’m not on the schedule in December at FGL Store.
Unless two meetings this week, otherwise I’m working from home. Thank god for technology. My job is basically 95% on a computer.

Kristin and Frida will be at FGL Store till we close for the season.
22nd of December is our last day to keep open.

Since start of the summer I’ve done many shifts so it was a good timing having some time off since my due date is 12th of December.

Kristin & I share FGL 50/50 . Sometimes I can cover more when she’s having a busy period or it’s the reverse. But in the end it’s always simular.
We are so lucky that we can help each other out in that way, makes work so much easier and gives us both much more freedom!

Let me tell you about this coming weekend.
We have Marlene @Fruvintage & Marie @axkonstochkeramik as pop up’s at FGL store this Saturday.

Marie’s cups – Remember when we had them in our shop? They were so popular.

I love Marlenes coffee cause some of the profit support Läkarmissionen. Not only is it great coffee you also support people in need.

Our dear friends Jennie, Lisa & Frida Eklund will be in the store next door as a sneak peak on their coming studio. OPENING IN JANUARY 2019. CLART STUDIO.
FGL will get new neigbours. So exciting.

If you havn’t visited FGL already, this weekend will be a good one to come by.

We had a meeting yesterday planing spring events, gosh I’m excited.
Lots of workshops coming along nicely.
”Utvecklingsdag”, Breakfast lectures & much more.
To inspire and get inspired by and with other people is my favourite right now.

In two days another exciting meeting is booked, which I think could be a fun project the next couple of months. Fingers crossed for that collaboration!

Robe + pant set.
Perfect combo to wear all day. Printed by hand, such fine art work.
Each piece is truly unique, due to it’s all done by hand.

There’s also a Pyjama set available, not many pieces left though I guess they been on many wish lists till christmas.

I get a lot of questions about what I’m wearing as pregnant. To be honest I basically have my everyday clothes.
This peony set is I’m wearing in the picture above I had to go M/L, being 9 month pregant it would of been hard to fit a size small by now.

Wish you a good week, who knows next update might be about a newborn baby.
Fingers crossed.

all my love,

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.

 

This is a payed collaboration with Schwarzkopf pro Sweden.

BRUKSTORGET

Our square at Brukstorget.
You need to visit if your in Varberg.
Welcome to Blomsterbaren.
Every week we see the girls next door, I usually run in to heat up my food and always get taken all the beauty in there.

Shop is full of decoration and inspiration.
If you are lucky Doris might be in there too.

The latest news is that we’re gonna get new neighbours at the start of next year.
Our girls Lisa B Jennie K and Frida E. = Clart
Stands for clay and art. Just what the trio are together.

A more creative corner you’ll have to look for in Varberg.
My little baby will have so many mummas around. Lucky me.
2019 will be very special.

 

Can’t wait!

 

 

 

 

 

reaction to all this consumption madness

Isn’t time to say I have enough?
I find it so strange that we still have ‘black friday’ ‘summer sales’  ‘christmas sales’ ‘singles day’ ‘mid season sale’
Vulgar shopping days – which trick us to overuse – resolve each other. After this Black Friday we all shop like crazy in order to give away stuff for Christmas and the day after christmas eve:
Christmas trade begins – which is expected to hit new record in Sweden with 79.7 billion kronor spent.
79.7 billion!

I’ve gotten texts and emails regarding the ‘black friday sale’ for days.
I can scroll by and delete, which I do.
But wanted to share how I feel about it all. It certainly makes me sick.

It’s time to re think. This week I’m gonna focus on giving more than usual, I wanna help others in need. Gonna go through my wardrobe and rinse out once again. Even thou I’ve done that for the past 6 months, sure there’s more to give. Food wise, we have enough to make meals for each day without ‘buying’ lots more.

If you have the need to spend money, please invest in planting a tree, that truly makes a change.
Here’s a link to Läkarmissionen. 50 sek will last to plant 10 trees. Amazing right!?
