dress up with FGL

This weekend we’re having a great price on all our shirts at FGL Store. 20% off Friday till Sunday.
We said to high light our shirt collection cause it’s perfect to use in your everyday wear, together with a skirt or jeans.
My favourite right now is the blue polka dot shirt.
These are dabu printed, which means printed by hand with a wooden block dipped in clay to make the print. I mean, how many clothes are made in a traditional way nowadays? Basically none.

The other day Kritin went to see Lisa in her studio.
Lisa is one of the coolest cats I know.
Talented, smart, brave and 300% cool. Very inspiring.
In fact all of these ladies mentioned in this update are true motivators the whole bunch. Creatives & fun souls . Happy to have them in my everyday life.
Lucky us LISA just opened up Clart Studio together with Jennie and Frida next door to FGL. CHECK THEM OUT HERE.

We are so proud of our whole collection at FGL. Everything is surely made with a lot of love and effort. Every piece is hand made.

In this picture you see our newest member – Peony shirt. It’s amazing, big peony flowers. Comes as a skirt as well, and soon an amazing wrap dress.

Habutai silk shirt in Blue.
Made of the finest silk. Not many left – so grab one before it’s to late,
last chance !

At the moment I’m working from home with FGL. Getting lots of updates from Kristin on whats happening in the store, right now we just recieved new jewellery boxes and a whole serie of skin products. I’ve organized the shipping process for our summer collection. It’s getting shipped by boat from India today accually. Very excited for all news to come.

Tomorrow we have Jenny and Jens with us again at FGL, during the whole day, from 15-18.30 it’s kids work shop! it got booked up so quick, lovely to see the big interest.

Check Kristin’s full interview with Lisa.

Happy weekend to you all! xx

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.

My hair products.

Hi guys.

As you may or may not know, for the past six months I have been collaborating alongside Schwarzkopfpro Sweden.
For over 3 years I’ve been using their products and my hair has never been better.
I’ve never been this blonde before, and my hair has never been this strong, healthy and looks amazing.
I’m so glad for this teamwork because I feel I can really speak highly of their products.
Not only for their products, the people working with Schwarzkopf are deeply professional.
I met many of them throughout these years and super happy to say I’m an ambassador for the brand.
Thank you all.

This is me just before my hair was getting dyed.

after.

The Fitting Room Store

The fitting room store – A brand new concept in the retail industry. 


The customer behavior is changing retail faster than ever. The next step is when a store is both digital and pshysical.
Vertiseit & Touchtech together created a concept that I think will change the industry for the better.

Kristin & I were asked to join in on their opening day.
With the brands Wacay & Sneaky steve shoes, two different brands in one store.
I was blown away. Such a clever concept. Today so many stores struggles and shut down due to expensive costs.

We shop more online and the pshysical stores slowly disappears.
This concept has it all. You can try feel, see the product & place your order online.

The best part was how easily it was scaning your product on one of the screens, to get access to the:
-manufacturing process
-sustainability
-the collection
-sizes colours etc.
There is so much clarity for me as customer .

”Blip for more info”

”The Fitting Room is an arena where the customer can try the full range of  Wacay clothes and Sneaky Steve shoes at a retail space of only 63 square feet.
Orders are placed by customers on interactive touch screens. That way, the staff can spend their entire time servicing the customers. The order is delivered directly from the respective trademark’s central e-commerce warehouse. This helps the stores reduce their capital tied up and the need for costly sales” – Vertiseit.

When in Gothenburg I highly recommend you to visit the fitting room store.
Visit Krickelin to see our shoot from the day before.

Collaboration with Vertiseit & Touchtech.

through another lens

Hi October!

Autumn is certainly here. I’m so grateful. Love all the colours and how it smell outside. Crispy mornings are the best ones.

This picture is from a very sunny morning, just before my 20 min yoga. Found a really good 20 min class on youtube. For morning and night.

One night I treated myself to a long bath. Jake both cooked and made me this warm bath after a really long day at FGL Store. My back were so sore, I could barely move. So this peppermint bath – truly made my day! Thanks hun!

And then I fell in love with this washing line. How cute.

I’m usually a light sleeper but now during my pregnancy, I’m like hawk – I hear everything. Some nights Jake snore a bit toooooo much. I go crazy!

& there was week 30.
Can’t tell if I’m wearing pants ,can you? Belly is big now.
When I do my yoga, it’s a funny feeling when my belly touches my legs, hello there bump!

An old favourite of mine: Chia pudding with heaps of cardamom:

2 cups of Almond milk or coconut milk
6 tablespoons of Chia seeds
1 table spoon of oats
+ Lots of grinded cardamom, it’s best if you do it yourself so you get bits and pieces, don’t grind to much. Soak for 10min in the fridge.

I use frozen berries and some natural yoghurt with my chia pudding.
Top it with banana granola, nuts seeds -whatever you want. Such a great meal. Easy to prep and have ready in the fridge to for a few days.

Such a pleasure to go to the hair dresser . This is before.

this is after.  always happy with the result, Thanks Ida ! & thanks Schwarzkopfprosweden.
