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

Recently

I can’t say anything bad when regarding my week. It has been perfect.
Like a sweet mix of everything.
– Time spent with dear friends over long cups of coffee.

– Kristin and I have been busy working with FGL this week as we have so much news and those orders are coming in like crazy! Even managed time for an extra photo shoot for a very exciting collaboration which is coming this June. Fun!

Besides all this I have been cleaning like a mad women (according to me, because I never have time to clean usually). But this week has been so good, rinsing every corner of our house, some old favourites are up for sale on Tradera actually. Recently sold my peacock chair and our blue velvet sofa! Happy days.

– Spent every night in the garden too.
Thursday night our boat came alive, after 25 years being on dry land, that made us super excited for this summer. Time spent on the ocean is never a waste!

What makes this week extra special is the sunshine and the heat. I love it so much.

Spending my Saturday in FGL Store, so come and visit me please. Store is open between 11-15 but we might have to shut down a bit earlier due to our workshop that starts at 15 o’clock.

 

Thanks! Enjoy your weekend.

HOLDIT x MIRANDA REBECCA

A while ago I teamed up with the brand Holdit.

Holdit, according to me, offer the best iPhone cases on the market. Their office is located here, in Varberg, it has one of the best ‘work balconies’ in Varberg. With such a beautiful view. I’ll show you next time I’m in there.

From our first meeting I felt really inspired by all the work that it is behind a single product – like a case. The design team are in the same office and the designs are created here, thats cool. One of my favourite products is the 2M charging cable, robust for everyday use and very handy!

”In 2007 Apple launched the iPhone and completely changed our relationship to smartphones, the Internet and how we interact with others. The standard mobile phone became smart and a natural part of daily life. This is what gave birth to Holdit – to simplify our digital life and introduce a touch of personality. Thanks to carefully selected suppliers and designers and relying on efficient logistic solutions, Holdit offers a range with continuous product updates that respect the user requirements on design and function”

True, Smartphones are here to stay and people will always need a case for protection but also like  ”jewellery” to their phone . It’s always fun to style your phone with a nice looking case isn’t?

Right now I use the Paris Tropicat.


This update is a payed collaboration between Holdit & Miranda Rebecca.

 

Thanks M x

KOLLIJOX HOME

The other week I met up with my friend Jennie, aka Kollijox the artist.
I think many of you might know of her.
The most colourful person I know. And so talented. And lovely. Always get very inspired by her.

They live in the city center of Varberg and. It´s a ‘funkis’ vila. Like a box shaped house. Now I wonder why I ddn’t thought of taking any photos of the exterior.. next time!

She just painted her kitchen mint green and livingroom dusty pink. Just what we swedes need, some colour! Be bold it’s fun.

Creative people always inspires me the most. Things in every corner. Like small little things.
Like an extra spice is to your food basically.

FUN! & TASTY.

Here is the other side of her kitchen.

A livingroom in pink is never boring is it?!

The Hulk asks if you have a bad eye sight since you ‘piss next to the toilet’ maybe its not the eye, it could be your bent knob too.. I mean WHY NOT! this makes me so happy.

Jills bed room. Also by Kollijox art.

Zeke the dog joined us for a walk in the forest later on. It’s not a secret, Zeke is her little baby boy.

Jennie is not only a skilled artist, she is a master of creating gardens too.
She said she will have an exhibition in her green house: 10-11th of May. Between 11-17 o’clock.Don’t miss out!
A lot of great things will be for sale.

I need to come back again to take many more photos.. this was only few % of their house..

Thanks Jennie, you are awesome in every way possible!

Lecture on men’s violence against women –

Sweden is one of the world’s least uneven countries. Nevertheless, men’s violence towards women is one of our biggest social problems.

Thousands of women and children seek shelter on the country’s women’s journeys
every year. Every day around 100 rapes are committed. Every tenth child is forced
experience the dad’s violence against mom. Worldwide is the men’s violence
an obstacle to women’s and children’s human rights.

Anita on Women’s Journal in Varberg has extensive knowledge about men’s violence against women, and a long experience of supporting women who have been exposed to violence. We need to broaden the knowledge and therefore invite our entire network of contacts this evening.

You do not need past experience to become volunteer or in order to engage in the matter in other ways.

Meet us at FGL Store, Birger Svensson Road 16E, Varberg. Coffee and cake will be served.

IN BLOOM

Ok guys, this will be an update from Kristins house and her workshop last night.
Prepare for bloom bonanza!

Yesterday we were invited for a workshop in her lovely home, together with Borås tapeter. They just released their new collection In bloom.
Every single piece of wall paper in there, stunning!
Jenny Hahne the illustrator behind some of the patterns were with us all night and she shared her story when creating these lovely prints.

This is the book you should look for when in the store.
( Sofia Jansson just re done her office with the print you see on the book cover. Check it out here )

Kristin chosen the Thistle in bloom, such a magical piece that as well. Perfect for their kitchen.

Chestnut blossom totally took me by storm. It’s not even funny how you can fall in love with a pattern this much,
I had a very simular years ago from Borås tapeter. Since we renovated the whole house it’s now long gone. The one in blue is made for our bedroom upstairs, for both walls and ceiling I think. Go big right?

We got to see some of the original pieces from long back..

Dinner was served in the green house, food from Verket! – Varbergs best restaurant.
Kristin also ordered sunshine and +16 degress for last night. Could’nt get any better than this accually.

Hanging out with creative, inspirational girls a whole night is always a pleasure. I’m so grateful.
Here’s to strong women: may we know them & may we be them!

Natahlie & Matilda – Babes in Boyland.
Nanna – Nannakerstin
Catarina –Annacate

A funny thing with meetings likes this, is that the camera always eats first.

Kristin in action.

Nanna & to the right Diana – Diadonna.

Creative dinners as it’s best. I tried my hardest to create a new pattern for next years collection, let me just say I’m not an artist ! hahaha! Creating is good for your soul thou..

I’m very sure the whole of Sweden will be ‘in bloom’ all year around..

Thanks Kristin & Boråstapeter for a magical night,
….and thanks to all the girls who made it so special.
