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.


One Step Closer to My Dream Garden

This is the first time in my life that I’ve successfully grown vegetables without killing the plant on the third day. Let me introduce my first homegrown cucumber! To be fair, cucumber is a very easy plant that’s satisfied by a splash of water everyday and not much else.

Since I yet haven’t killed our lemon tree or tomato plant and successfully grew a cucumber, I feel I’m ready to start planning my dream garden. I want to plant strawberries, two apple trees and a small potato field. First off, I’m making a little herb garden outside of our kitchen.

What else should I have in my garden?


Colorful Details

I usually don’t use that much color when I dress myself, but these are two of my favorite things to wear. I got the loafers six years ago in a second hand shop on Brick lane, and the bracelet comes from Childhood. I think everyone should have one in their accessories collection.

Dorothea Barth-Jörgensen: "We need to change our value system at the core"

Filippa K Circle invites inspiring people to share their current mindsets. This week it's model Dorothea Barth-Jörgensen!


Tôteme is a Swedish brand founded in New York by married couple Elin Kling and Karl Lindman, and let me tell you—I could easily fill up my entire closet with their timeless designs. Now, they’re opening up a new design studio/showroom in the same building as our office!
I find the idea of the design team meeting the customers and getting instant feedback inspiring in more than one way: The customer will get a glimpse of the work process, while the staff will be able to integrate with and get to know the women who shop there.
The large mirror fitting room is covered with Elin Kling’s own mood boards and accessories, placed there to inspire the styling of the garments in the collection. To complement the fashion, they’ve also furnished the room with timeless design pieces that are equally inspiring. Or what do you think?

I’m really exited to try the new organic beauty line from Estelle & Thild. So far, I’ve tried this blush, and I must say I love the color and feel of it. If you’re looking for some new organic beauty products, I can highly recommend these!
