Notes from a Swedish stylist


Above all

"While we may come from different places and speak in different tongues, our hearts beat as one." - JK Rowling

I am so tired of reading the news everyday to find that the world is growing darker. There were no terrorist attacks in Sweden earlier this month as you all probably know by now. It was a rather strange thing to say in a speech considering there was absolutely no truth to it. One might ask why this man has to tell lies to prove a point? It is my belief that the truth is generally preferable to lies. Especially for someone that, for the time being, holds the position of president for one of the largest countries in the world. Today I had to remind myself of something a very clever, wise woman wrote, “It is important to fight and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay though never quite eradicated. We need to now, more than ever, stand up for what brave women and men have been fighting for. We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

It has been such an amazing experience to get to draw these clothes and to create something that is sustainable and organic. I have loved every second of it! But most of all I have loved to design for the people I admire the most, mothers, to make something for us feels like an honor. I really hope you like the result and if you have any questions about the collection please let me know!

Today we are showing the collection that I made for Boob here in Stockholm. If you would like to see the collection up close before it is released online on 1 March you should come by! Here are all the details for the event.

The other day I got sick of just wearing black and dark colors. I find it funny how wearing bright colors can make you feel a bit… Lighter? Happier? Do you know what I mean? Having a 7 month old baby that eats only orange food (love carrots and mango) means that wearing white is not ideal, but I am somewhat of a master of a stain-removing master after learning all there is to know about garment care from our care guide. What are your best tips for getting rid of stains?

The silent blender

Blender, Bosch SilentMixx Pro.

When I was pregnant, I always pictured myself making my baby’s food from scratch. But when Dylan started eating solid food the thought of making it myself felt a bit scary. What would I make him? What should babies eat at first? How do I make sure he’s getting all of the necessary nutrients? I probably made the process of making Dylan’s food a lot bigger in my head, but that’s what new moms do, right? Making food for your baby is not only cheaper than buying it ready-made but it’s also a great way make sure that they’re getting pure, healthy ingredients without preservatives.

Anyway, I overcame my fears a few weeks ago when I found this recipe for millet porridge! It’s very simple, healthy, and Dylan loves it! Now, before you write it off as being too much work, I say try it just once. Nowadays I make a bigger batch of both the jam and porridge because it stores well and can be reheated. I make enough for myself because it’s delicious for breakfast. Both the millet and the apricots contain a lot of iron and zinc, crucial minerals for babies 6-months and older (they’re also excellent for tired mothers!).

I’m pretty sure the blender I use was designed for new parents! It’s super silent but still effective enough to blend a number of ingredients so you can use it when the baby is sleeping without worrying about waking the little one up. I also love that the pitcher is made out of glass! It comes with extra gear so that you can use it to make juice, crush ice and chop onions. What more can you ask for? The recipe for the porridge is below. Send me your baby food recipes if you have them!

The porridge

2 dl of water
1/2 tablespoon rapeseed oil
3 tablespoons crushed millet grain or millet flakes

Bring the millet flakes to boil in water and simmer for a few minutes. When the porridge is ready, add the oil and stir. Pour the porridge into the blender and mix until smooth.

The jam

10 dried apricots, soaked
3 strawberries
1 apple
1/2 tsp rose hip shell flour
1 tablespoon of lemon

Put soaked apricots, strawberries, apple, rose hip shell flour and lemon into the blender and blend until smooth. Add some water if you want the consistency to be thinner.

This is a collaboration with Bosch.


Outside my window there is a snowstorm and I am wearing woolen socks and my biggest knitted sweater. Still, I can not help myself but to browse Tredera Trend for finds and dream about the spring sun, green grass and birdsong…


Time really does fly

So much has happened in Dylan’s development in the past two months! All of a sudden he is way more of a toddler than a baby. He’s already crawling around and climbing on everything he can and he loves feeding our dog Stella these little puffed corn doodles every chance he gets (Stella is of course thrilled by this). What was just a little bundle is now a person that has favorite songs and likes to play the piano. His independence is just so wonderful to watch.

I was talking to a friend the other week who has a daughter that is a month older than Dylan. We talked about how – not so long ago – that time where we were stuck in bed nursing a new born felt like it would never end. But it did! And how much we wished that we’d known it would end so we would’ve enjoyed the first months a little more! Looking back now I almost miss him being this teeny, tiny fragile little bundle completely dependent on me.
