Blushwash-Blondme

hi,

This update will be about my crush for Schwarzkopf.
For many years I’ve been a hair model for them, and my hair is loving their products as much as I do.

The results after new colour is always outstanding.
Yesterday was no different.
Ida my hairdresser is a total queen when it comes to colouring and well,  everything really.
Yesterday she began by bleaching the roots. After that, Blondme’s new blushwash was added – in a strawberry tone.

2018 is the year for pastel colours. Strawberry felt like a good choice, perfect timing for the Swedish Midsummer.
You can read more about their beautiful options here.

Strawberry
Silver
Lilac
Apricot

Love having a bottle at home ready for whenever I want to mix up my look. Such an quick an easy process for drastic change! Thinking of trying the silver or lilac colours next time, apricot may be too warm for me but you don’t know until you try it! So go ahead and treat yourselve.

you never regret a swim

So they say..

I don’t really enjoy being in the water cause I get to cold. Even if it’s +25 . I’m the most happy whilst being next to the water.

Almost every time I need to explain myself why, cause so many think a swim is the best thing in the world.

As much as they enjoy being in the water I love being warm in the sun.
There’s occassions when I have a dip tho, start of the spring. when it’s +5 in the air and water is freezing cold. Now we’re talking about a happy mind after a dip like that.

As a child I had to many ear infections, caused by being in the water. One dive, 3h later an ear infection. SO that’s a big factor too.

Spending time in the sun – no problemo. There is never a too hot day for me.

MORE VEGGIES TO THE PEOPLE

More greens to me,  it makes my stomache so happy!

Sometimes I have so much love for cooking great food, somedays not at all. Right now I’m in a ‘bad’ period.
A sandwich with eggs could easily be my lunch for three days.
The other day I made Beetroot risotto which is super easy.

Not only easy it’s delicious to.

4 servings

1 diced onion
1 clove of garlic
3 dl arborio rice

Fry the things above in olive oil.
Rice should get a bit shiny, add:
2 dl white wine
Let the wine soak into your rice.
add your choice of stock -don’t have to be veg stock but that was my choice. Little by little -always stir your rice. Simmer slowly. This takes up to 15-20min. See if your rice is ready to eat by now or give it some extra minutes..

Add on a tablespoon of butter and 2dl parmesan cheese. In the end I added some sliced beetroots. (already cooked)
And while my rice where getting ready I pan fried some mushrooms as well…

A pretty yummy lunch I have to say.

Good luck,

mir

FGL + Scorett

A while ago FGL teamed up with Scorett Official. We’re collaborating together in time for this beautiful summer. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this.

Kristin and I met up one evening to shoot Scorett’s summer collection alongside FGL’s  collection.

You could still feel the warmth from the last rays of sun, it couldn’t of been more perfect.
We started off at the beach.

The lilac’s were in full bloom. Matched the colours of the shoes I was wearing.

Scorett started in 1989, located in Varberg as well.

Such a great pleasure to work with such an established company as them and have the opportunity to collaborate side by side is so much fun.

We wanted talk more about our project Sisterhood. The more people that hear about it, the more people we can help. During ‘Sisterhoods’ first week the project got eight new volunteers to the Women’s Journal in Varberg! Through the power of social media, it’s incredible how many souls you reach out to.

FGL want to share with you what we believe the right to freedom is for all women. It is to not be afraid of being physically and mentally abused or raped in your own home.

Everyone is entitled to feel free – without fear. Everywhere – but above all in your own home.

This is a human right and shouldn’t need to be highlighted. Therefore, FGL Store have created a collection to draw attention to this taboo subject.

Above all, we want to use our way of reaching out to people, to highlight this problem in our society. To share knowledge, encourage civil engagement and commitment. FGL Store will be donating a percentage of the profit to the Women’s Journal, who help women and their children in need.

My favourite thing about Scorett is how they put so much work behind their products, they make conscious choices for everything they do.

”We strive for sustainable development, which protects people and the environment. Our sustainability efforts are coordinated from the headquarters in Varberg. We attach great importance to educating our staff in sustainability issues. In this way, we create commitment and build knowledge to work consciously with sustainability. We are already thinking about the beginning of our design and product development to reduce our impact on nature and human beings”

”The Scorett Group works with Human Bridge, which means that we collect and donate any shoes that can not be sold. Human Bridge is a material assistance organization that works for people and the environment. The professional organization has operations in approximately 25 countries (mainly Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East). Our contribution is donated directly to aid efforts or generates revenue for various aid projects. We are also launching a project for collecting customers’ used footwear in store, to expand reuse and reduce the waste of shoes. We see the project as a matter of course in our sustainability work because it extends the product life cycle while helping the needy”

We share the same love for our city. It’s truly beautiful during this time of year.

The project Sisterhood started because Kristin and I wanted to make a change. Small things can be a huge difference for someone out there.
Everyone needs to speak up more about things that are not right.

Working with Scorett was an obvious choice from the beginning. I love their whole collection .

Their work to support so many people makes my heart so happy and proud.
When you share the same ethicals it’s not hard. Believe in making a difference.

From this day and onwards you will see our collaboration in Scoretts channels -from posters to videos.

Together we hope to make a change – for a little more information read more on their website.  Lastly, support the Sisterhood collection, you’ll find the T-shirts here.

Bye for now, M

ELDERFLOWER ICE TEA

hi guys,

Certainly been enjoying my days off to the fullest. Bad wifi is like magic to your soul. Totally needed to be off social media . Yesterday was our first day at home. We spent the day in the garden, in our boat. I was paying tons of bills it felt like. Replied on emails and busy working away with upcoming collaboration.

Our garden has truly blossomed out the last couple of weeks. I decided to make som Elder flower ice tea.
Also promised to share the recipe later on yesterday but ddn’t have enough time.

So here we go.

I had 3 glas jars that I filled up with different things:

1 with: Elderflower, mint.

2 with: Elderflower, raspberries.

3 with: Elderflower, ginger.

Pick and mix litterally.
I took a big casserole and boiled plenty of water, enough to cover the flowers. In 6 L of water I added some honey- have no idea how much but add as much as you like.
Let it get cool down,  take out what you added to flavour your tea. Add 1 squeezed lemon per jar.

Keep it in the fridge.

Voila!

Postcard from Spain

Holá,

Greetings from Spain and it’s absolute amazing here.
Today we took the ferry to Isla Tabarco. Such a little hidden gem.

It took 20 min to get there with the ferry.

I said to Jake that I could easily spent the weekend here. Absolutly nothing todo really. Such a tiny island you could walk around it in 20 min maximum.
Places like this gives you so much tho, total relaxation. Not much tourists either.
Suits me well.

Meet my new friend Eva. Such a gorgeous girl. I first seen her when she pulled a cats tail so I called the cat over. But he ran away quickly – me and Eva had a selfie moment together haha! had to take a photo of this cutie.

This was our view whilst having a lunch. I can tell you I enjoyed every minute of it.

1st of June is an extra special day  cause my gran Linne’a should of turned 100 years old today if she still was with us.
We had a cake and few beers to saluté her for sure.

Shorts and Duster comes from my shop. Favourite outfit accually.

Enjoy your weekend,

Mirs

Bristol-Simular to Berlin

hi team,

Days goes by so quickly and all of a sudden we left England for a sunny Spain. Thought I wanted to share photos from my walk the other day.

Strolling along Glouster road. A street full with art and funky shops.

It reminds me a lot of Berlin.

Such a cute little shop. I regret not buying the moon necklace in there since I lost my one…

Just after this place a stopped in a café for a lunch. Soon as I walked in there the first song played was ‘Gypsy’ with Fleetwood Mac. I called my lovely sister in Sydney and talked about things. We have common love for FWM so I thought I needed to give her a ring.

England is so cheap compared to Sweden. Two avocados for a pound is 75% less of the price . If you lucky you get two for 4 pound at home. All fruit and berries is also around a pound . Great for a veggie lover like me.

Many houses looks like this.

or like this .. in the city anyway.

This was the end of my stroll for this time.

All the best,

m

Brad & Abby

hi,

You may of read my previous post, regarding our lost bags. Here’s the update… They reached us much faster than expected, 1 hour before the wedding started actually –
VERY happy for that!

 

The Fletcher family travelled to Devon for good friends, Brad and Abby’s wedding. We stayed in Finlake Holiday Park. Set in the beautiful English countryside, Finlake has log cabins and static cabins. Surrounded by green rolling hills, forests and the sound of the wildlife, you can understand why this is a popular place to spend an ‘English Summer Holiday’.

An English wedding is different to those in Sweden.
We all met up on the Friday. More and more people arrived and the first night was like ‘a warming up party’ before the big day.
It got a bit late for some but I went home early. What was really fascinating is how the English always feel fresh no matter how many drinks the night before.

Wedding day started at 1pm located at the The Great Barn.
Even before the ceremony started I cried, walking in the the stunningly beautiful venue. Everyone looked so gorgeous and seeing the groom, that was enough to set me off!

The venue really was something else. Renovated barn, traditional oak wooden ceiling, courtyard and garden in full bloom, the out houses were from another world, take a look.

 

After the amazing couple said yes we were taken out in the garden. Same time as this the sun decided to join us. It was just the perfect day, drinks and nibbles and sunshine.

In England you can either get invited to both day & night, or the evening.
I think at the end there were up to 150 people.

Ladies – from the left Cassie, Becky and bridesmaid Kate.

The groom and his team.

The bride. Simply GORGEOUS!

Abby’s mum & Joel. Looking good.

Me and my Jake.

Grandad was happy. He smiled all day and all night, we had a long talk about his whole life. I love stories! 87 and a champion!

The Fletchers .

4pm we went back inside the barn.

I love how so many wear hats – makes the wedding extra cool for me.

Dinner, speechess, and dancing throughout the night.
Abby & Brad got both rain and sunshine on their wedding day,

I know in Sweden we say it means good luck to have that on your wedding day.

I’m still a bit taken by how everything could be soo perfect.
Start to finish.

Amazing people and lots of smiles, plus lots of new friends for me! Very grateful to be there.

Thank you for everything, Mr & Mrs Horman.

when things go wrong

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday felt like the longest day.

The morning started well, Jake and I left early to go up to Landvetter airport. 12 days of holiday ahead of us. I was ‘selling’ Jake Arlanda airport, telling him how nice it was, our stop over was 2.5hours, until next flight. Planned for us to have a nice relaxed breakfast whilst doing a bit of work before we arrived to England.

It totally changed when we found out bags were missing! As we had a few hours things would hopefully work out anyway.

Unhelpful baggage services sent us to terminal 2 first, then off to terminal 5, where a man said go to terminal 4, then back to terminal 5. Everyone sent us in different directions – between the terminals we ran, in total 6km, like mad people.
Personally I have never experienced such chaos in an airport before regarding baggage. When we managed to get through there was a very slim chance of us getting onto that plane – nor our bags. I felt angry and sad. One lady, our saviour, said – I’ll check you in. Such a star, she give us the smiles back!

Stressful start to say the least, with no food in our stomaches. Time was now 11. Glad to be sat on the plane!
However, half way through the flight a poor man had a heart attack. We diverted for an emergency landing in Amsterdam.

Such a horrid situation at the time with the helpless man fighting for his life. Heartless people started taking photos of the whole situation. At this point I was so angry. Like how can you not show any respect? I wanted to scream, cry and throw those phones and people off the plane. The stewardesses handled it very well. Credit to those girls. Bless the man who was fighting for his life and hope he’s well today.
On arrival, Thursday afternoon, we learned that our luggage never left Sweden.

Absolutely speechless at this point- HANGRY as hell and tired. But what can you do really.
We’re going to a wedding this weekend so that makes me the most upset, I was so happy for my outfit I bought…

Everything works out in the end, and it’s only material things but a day like this with such highs and lows, handling all sorts of feelings, you kinda get to know yourself a bit more. Stress is not for me.

Enjoy your weekend!

We’re on our way to the wedding venue.
