Wanted to share my monday with an update.
Kristin and I have decided to meet up every Monday morning to go through all that is needed for the week. It could be about sales, what we need to high light, new orders, events, stock etc etc.
This Monday was all about the sea. Our old favourite spot.
The nude place in our home town. ‘ Damernas ‘
We had lunch with a fantastic view. Off course coffee and a bun was included.
I’m dressed in an old favourite 10 pm in the colour teal.
We have had these dresses for few years now, but always a variation of different colours.
Kristin really wanted a swim so she went in. I don’t know if she knows but after a dip her eyes becomes even bluer.
I was there with the camera, going through the photos afterwards was really funny. We were laughing till we cried! too nude on some to share.
This afternoon we snapped 270 photos, 12 dresses, striped pants, knitted sweater and this LA shirt with polka dots! A popular piece.
The majority of our collection is one size. We try to meet all sizes, but it’s hard as a small buisness. The stock you need to keep when you have XS to XL is massive. Meaning a lot of money. Also a bigger range of many sizes is a risk.
We’re growing – many new costumers each day – which we’re forever grateful for. Working with ‘slow fashion’ and a more sustainable wardrobe makes me so proud.
On our way home from the sea I said, who made us rose hip soup last year?
It was so yummy. Malin I need your recipe please.
We will make that tomorrow at FGL store. You won’t miss out.
Probably will be seen in 3 channels, FGL store, mine & Kristins.
This update is a payed collaboration with my own buisness. FGL Store.
This is my job. FGL Store. Let me tell you a bit about the process.
How amazing to work with so many talented souls. I’m beyond grateful that these people come into our lives over 3 years ago.
I was browsing around on Instagram, seeing a post I thought was rather beautiful. Wrote a little email asking about a collaboration was possible, told some about our FGL store and how we work.
Few emails later, We received our first garments.
Years later we now workes daily together to get a stunning collection.
Dafu Devi. The mom of printing. She’s been printing for 45 years. Talk about dedication, and perfection.
The print you see on my shirt is exaclty the same as you see on the table, the print is made of clay.
Each family have their own reciepe.
After it’s been dried, the garments next step is colouring. We use mostly indigo flower since our shop is almost 90% blue products ..
Indigo flower, a powerful blue natural colour.
About 100 hands creating our products.
What they breathe, touch and absorb during our production matters . Sustainable fashion is not only about ethical wages and the environment ~ it’s about individual health.
From farmers cutters sewers ~ using natural dyes and working in a traditional way makes a huge difference to many.
Even for you ~ the buyer.
Thanks for choosing FGL clothing.
This is a payed update with my own buisness FGL Store.
This week has gone by so quickly. Can’t say we have enjoyed the sunshine much, or any midnight swims due to the final fix on our house.
Sorry green house cause you look like shiet this year, but havn’t had enough time to look after you much, but that’s ok. You can’t do everything at once.
Love renting our house out during the summer cause we get things done. The things you know about- but don’t do until you get a kick in your ass. House is soon in perfection for the families that will rent it.
Other than that it’s high season at FGL Store . It’s a lot of emails/whatsapp call to India regarding the new sampling. Got an update just now regarding winter samples, exciting.
This Wednesday was a sales record and it’s never been that busy before ! So happy and grateful.
Yesterday I worked on my collaboration with Boråstapeter. I have one more room that has been transformed. I will share that during this weekend. Thanks for all the loving I got from our bedroom in bloom. THANK YOU ALL!
About this morning, I cleaned out all closets, cleaned our windows. Prepped the car full with things for the tip, not so exciting but it’s needed. Now I’m updating my blog and checking the email.
Everything will soon be ready. Still got a few hours to go before heading into the city to work with Kristin at FGL Store.
Enjoy your weekend peeps,
This update is a collaboration for my own buisness FGL Store.
In may I was away for 2 weeks for a holiday. Me and Kristin basically met in the door and it was her turn to see Europe. Their holiday seemed to be so nice, many countries in a few weeks. How sweet ! Exploring new places are truly the best!
The good thing with FGL is that we can be apart from each other and still have a on going buisness. Whatsapp is rather amazing. Gives us a lot of freedom.
Daily talks to India is also something I do, without whatsapp, email, instagram I don’t really know if we could of be this ”free”.
Jungle breakfast in my favourite park.
”Kärleks parken in Varberg”, Jucieandyoga is ran by my talented friend Malin.
So much love has been put into this little place, never seen anything like it. Malin and many others have yoga classes here every morning and through the whole of July. Classes start at 8.30 every day. I can tell you, yoga under the trees whilst listening to the birds, couldn’t be more dreamy.
All juices and smoothies are made with fresh organic fruits. Thank you Malin for helping make Varberg so beautiful. If ever in Varberg, J.O.Y is a MUST!
The other week I started my morning there myself. Delicious coffee, smoothie bowl and a green juice…perfect way to start the day. Together with Karin from Holdit, we had a little meeting here. Love collaborating with like minded people.
My favourite, obviously the Deco Cat (love everything CATS).
Many cases to choose from, this one had the thumbs up from the start.
I know their cases and other accessories can be found in Åhlens, Elgiganten and chosen stores around Sweden. I think it’s so cool that this brand has it’s base in Varberg! Must be something in the ”Varberg air” which makes the people so creative.
oh! I need to mention one other thing….
We spent the weekend on our boat, 36h without any electricity. What saved me was this piece! A real life saver. More powerbanks to the people!
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
This update is collaboration between Mirandarebecca & Scorett Officials
I need to tell you about a collaboration I’m doing with Synsam official right now.
Between 31th of May – 4th of June, there is a big sale. It’s a great one too, 50% on all sunnies these days in choosen stores. I went to our local store in Varberg.
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.
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?
