Notes from a Swedish stylist


First off, I’d like to raise my glass to all the incredible mothers out there. Girls really do run the world—just like B, the soon-to-be mother of three, once stated. On Sunday it’s my first Mother’s Day, and so I’ve listed three things that becoming a mother has meant to me.

One: I now feel like I see the bigger picture in life. I know this sounds totally cliché, BUT, now I tend to focus only on the important stuff when it comes to our everyday life. I still have meltdowns, of course, but the path ahead is clearer than ever before.

Two: One thing that keeps hitting me is the fact that I pre baby thought I was SO busy. And now I wonder what the heck I did with all my spare time? In the two hours that Dylan takes his mid day nap, I get a whole day’s work done.

Three: I never thought I could love someone this much—this little boy is my everything.

The perfect mother day gift: Necklace “women unite”, Drakenberg Sjölin.
