Notes from a Swedish stylist


New year, new hope

Looking ahead to the new year, with hope and love.

This year has brought me so much happiness. And made me worry about the future more than ever before. The most beautiful moment that I ever experienced happened on July 3rd. The midwife placed a 4.2 kilo baby in my arms and time stopped for me. He was not a stranger, it felt like I knew him in the exact same way I know myself. The first thing I noticed was his feet which are a mix in between mine and André’s. Everything that happened after they put him in my arms is just a blur. It was like it was just him and me in the room and no one else. Every day that goes by I feel guilty that I did not love him as much yesterday as I do today, you know? Because every minute that I spend with him makes me love him even more.

Having this responsibility to another person is so overwhelming. When I think of everything that could happen to him and around him my stomach flips in a way it never done before. The world we live in has so many challenges ahead and having a vulnerable baby makes this feel much more real. This year was the year of war, angry lying men and hate. I truly hope that this new year is a time when people, like a wise person once said, base their decisions on their hopes, not their fears. I pray that we start to respect and treasure the environment, women, diversity and give the earth the balance it needs. I hope that 2017 is the year when we open our eyes to what is happening but also take action and stand up for what is right. What started as a post about the love of my life has turned into a bit of a manifesto for myself and to make the world a better place for him. My mantra for this year is to hope and not to fear. What is keeping you sane and looking forward to 2017?

My dream radio

I love this fabric radio from VIFA. I already have a super old one that I found at a flea market but if that one breaks I get one of these. I love that it’s covered in fabric rather than all plastic.

Four days of bliss

Vas, Iittala.
After eight days of the flue I am finally feeling like myself again. We have spent the past few days at André parents house lying infront of the fireplace all day and spending our evenings playing boardgames. In other words, it’s been four days of bliss. The next couple of days we are going to spent most of our time fixing things on the house. I hope to finish painting our bedroom! Other than painting I am going take a long walk tomorrow to find something new to decorate our new vas with.

Mini me

When you dress your baby as you dress your self

Baby jeans, Levi’s/Stadsmissionen.
Hope you have had a beautiful Holiday! We are still riding on the Christmas Eve wave still spending all our time eating, playing board games and drinking hot drinks. I only got Dylan one thing this Christmas. Something that I find myself doing when I dress Dylan is that I dress him like a little mini me. Don’t have a clue why? But his wardrobe sort of looks like a smaller version of mine… I was beyond happy since when I found theses miniature Levi’s jeans is a charity thrift shop the other week! Now i just need to find a pair of off white mini Vans for him and we’ll look identical.

A Californian outfit flashback to cure sick-day blues

Coat, Dagmar. Jeans, Acne studio. Shoes, Vans. Sunglasses, Ray-ban.

Since I am still sick and stuck in my pyjamas I thought I would have a look back at what I was wearing a year ago. A sun-soaked winter day, it feels a million miles away from my sick bed. How I wish the whole family could be hanging out at the beach today in Encinitas! Warm sun on back and the roar of the ocean is the best cure for me.


Can’t wait for the holidays

A sick Stella, the flu and Christmas decorations

Sorry for my absence lately, last week was quite intense to say the least. I had a feeling that something was not quite right with Stella and so we went to the doctor and it turned out she needed immediate surgery. That was Wednesday, she is still healing but seems to be getting better slowly. On Friday we will go back to make sure everything is in order and I just cannot wait to get the OK from the vet. Two days after her operation I got a mean flu that is stubbornly hanging on – in other words the last few days have been shit.

Now I am just looking forward to Christmas, lying in front of the fireplace with a cup of tea. On thing I managed to get done this weekend was to ransack our house for possible Christmas tree decorations since I am in not mood to buy any new ones. These prisms I just added a string to and they are ready to go up as soon as we have our tree. Other than that I am thinking Christmas crackers and apples as simple decorations. If you have any tips on easy DIYs for the tree I would be so happy to read them!
