my week


Monday I started to feel much better, happy being home from the hospital. So easy to take your health for granted isn’t?

On Tuesday Kristin and I worked on a collaboration that needed to be done by Friday. It was so nice being in FGL for couple of hours and I felt my normal self again.

Wednesday our summer collection got delivered so we were busy unpacking the 16 boxes and planned for the coming shoot. So exciting to release it all.

I had a collaboration this morning with almondybakery who relased their new vegan chocolate cake – choko delish, tasty indeed! You need to try it. So yum!

First out is Kåsa Blouse – in beige & dusty blue. Made of fine silk / cotton.

Thursday I was going to the city for a check up – shortly after I started to feel very low again. The sneaky fever came for a visit, my body were sore . Oh noes, not again. I thought I was on the mend.

Friday morning I woke up and I thought I needed to beat those bacterias, few pills later and my finest dress on I felt stronger.
Mary came for a visit by lunch time, as always we ended up talking for hours. I helped her release new products on her site, whilst she was cleaning my kitchen.

That was all I had to report so far,
Wishing you all a great weekend.

slow slow pace

Kristin & I certainly getting better on taking it a bit more slow nowadays.
Today was spent by the ocean for a tiny shoot.
I can’t complain on anything with my job!

We’ve worked together for some years now, time does fly cause this spring it’s already 7 years! We were employed at the hotel in Varberg back in the days, and that’s where we met.

Our tiny city Varberg, you are some kind of beautiful aren’t you ?
Don’t let the sunny photo trick you, it was freaking bloody cold!
Our fingers turned blue almost!

Outside FGL our biggest collection was delivered.
We are so excited to work with this the next couple of weeks.
Such a fine collection, softer colours – & not only blue!

After all these years in front of the camera I swear, there must be 10.000 photos of me shutting my eyes. Above is one anyway.
The next couple of months we’re booked up on many fun projects together.
Today we started with one of them and it’s gonna be released by next week.

I felt so happy and strong today for the first time in a long time.
I wrote last week about the high fever and feeling low –
On thursday morning I ended up in the hospital for few days due to a nasty infection which they couldn’t locate. I was surely looked after, almost spoilt. Varberg hospital is great.
Fever is gone and I feel like I’m getting back to my normal self again.

A day spent with Kristin and our FGL surely made me both happier and stronger. Yes!

Funny Swedes

To get a Swede social in winter time you organize a 15- o’clock fika.
We never miss out on a ”kaffe & kaka” .

Marlene Kristin & I had a meeting before we opened. Marie came with her brand new pottery, we all we’re amazed over the plate with blue roses.
Busy talking about this and that so I forgot to take photos really.
Today was only about being social and hang out.
15-o’clock fika is the best.
To describe a fika for a non swede is like what a cold beer in the pub is if you’re english, or perhaps a ginger kombucha if you’re an american.
That’s what a fika is for a swede.

Everyone loves Fruvintage11kaffe. Fine coffee beans with a good cause, you support läkarmissionen if you buy a bag! Such a fine gesture.
Always nice to hang out with lovely Marlene, so gentle and thoughtful.
Finn got a gift from her – his very own kånken bag.

Marie were selling ceramics like crazy and looking after Finn.
You can visit her shop if you wish to buy online.

I do think the rose plate will be the new best seller.
Tiny semla buns from our dear neighbour, konditoributiken. She made so many semlas, both swedish and icelandic! Both were a treat!
First I was unsure if we were going to finish all of them, but we did!

Such a nice Wednesday afternoon.

I love how Kristin always goes all in! Stripes with stripes! is the new black!

Michelle & Bea busy talking secrets 😉 .
Thanks for coming today, loved it!

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.

VARBERG CAMPAIGN

Hi,

Lighter days makes life much more fun.
Sun light is magic for your soul really. Here on the westcoast of Sweden the sun sets at 5.30pm so it’s longer days for sure.

Just wanted to update the latest news in FGL.
Right now we got a campaign on our popular set Varberg pant + duster.
33% off when buying a complete set. 1100kr instead of 1680kr.

We’re about to order a new bracelet but we need to ask you guys which one you like the most.

The swallow attached to the beak and the tail is Kristins and my favourite.
Which one do you prefer?

Marie my friend helped out in the store on Saturday, she was a great sales lady & model – everyone wanted to try our lounge shirt.
It goes really well with jeans and boots.
Tomorrow she is joining me again during opening hours and she will bring her pottery. She’s the maker of the famous blue cups . If you can’t come by she’s got a shop online.


Please come and say hi tomorrow – store is open from 16-18 o’clock.
Me Finn & Marie will be there.

Reklam för egen verksamhet.
