Wedding photos

2012-04-21 — Mitt liv

Took out the old, old photos to show the kids so I thought I might share them here with you too!

Tiago said; Mum looks beautiful.. Dad strange and what happened to grandmother??

If I would choose a wedding dress today I would probably go with the same silk offwhite dress from Alberta Feretti.

The dress still fits, I wore it for fun at our last aniversery when I brought my husband breakfast in bed 😉

10 years of marriage!!!

2012-04-21 — Mitt liv

Today it 10 years ago since we said yes to each other in the Campidoglio in Rome, it´s crazy how time fly… it feels like yesterday!

My sister Linda read this poem by Khalil Gibran at our wedding in the Maldives…

Then Almitra spoke again and said, ‘And what of Marriage, master?’ 

And he answered saying: 

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. 

You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days. 

Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. 

But let there be spaces in your togetherness, 

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. 

Love one another but make not a bond of love: 

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. 

Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. 

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. 

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, 

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. 

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. 

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. 

And stand together, yet not too near together: 

For the pillars of the temple stand apart, 

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.


I love him, I love her….. maybe we should get a tattoo?!

In beauty think smart!

2012-04-19 — Mitt liv

Nobody can have missed that I’m all in for organic and recycling! I started to go eco and green about 10 years ago and my friends in the modeling business thought i was crazy…parabens, sulfates and mineral-oils whats that??!!

I´m really happy that it has happened so much in these years, there are a whole lot of old brands that hooked up on this trend and so many newcomers!

And then there is this ting about the packaging, layers and layers of plastifiede boxes and contaiers, to add that luxurious feeling.. when it´s what´s inside the product that really matters??!

Yesterday I realised that my beautybackup support from Rome was finished so now I’m trying some new products that you can get here and I was quite surprised of all the brands to choose among!

My all time favourite is Weleda, and i would never even dream of using any other products for the kids. Trying out this Swedish brand Estelle and thild and I´m really liking their stuff! Another brand I can’t live without is Dr. Hauschka, I love their Lavender Sandalwood body Moisturizer and the Rose day cream. Then we have Asop with their gorgeous shops in London and Paris and Ren is another fabulous brand

8 years ago when i had a lot of trouble finding right products for myself I have had the idea of making my own beautyline with eco friendly and clean products. So now when I saw my college Emma Wiklund coming out with her line Emma S  I had to try this one to!!

Yesterday night i tried her Enzym peel to give you that “extra glow” and man was i Glowing…. Red like a tomato for 30 minuets, help! This morning my husband stared at me saying that I looked extra relaxed and glowing today!

I can warmly recommend it….. Thanks Emma;)

My cup of tea

2012-04-18 — Mitt liv

There are few things in life nicer than a warm cup of tea in good company! Im not a coffeeperson but I can´t live with out my teas and infusions!


Zhena´s Gypsy tea, natural coffin-free, fair trade and organic off course!

AND the tea comes in the most beautiful tin-boxes!

 The only place around here where you can get it is at BYM, as far as I know.

Sitting looking at my kids having gymnastic at The little gym, what a great place!!

It came to me sitting here peeking at all the children how stylish Swedish kids are… or how dedicated shoppers their parents are! Another thing is that there are so many cool scandinavian kid brands with ok prices!

Here comes some of my kids favourites right now!

Found the most adorable spring jackets for the boys at my french favourite TALC and the pants i got at Miloii for Tiago some years ago, original 70´s LOVE them so much!!

Since these Hummel sneakers arrived from Oii design Milo won’t go to school with any other!

Our colourful cousin in flowery summer pants- dress from Lindex

Mums favourite from Toffelmakaren, love that you can get them in any colour and with the kids name painted on them.

The “Ciao Bello” t-shirt was a present from TALC i Paris!

I just had to get this little summer dress in Ecological cotton from Åhlens with matching sunhat for Cleo! This outfit will be perfect on Capri this summer!!

Love the classic feel of these sandals i got for Milo from Kavat and they are Eco certified, yeeeyh! Unfortunatly they were sold out in size 31 for Tiago..

God bless indoor playlands when it´s raining and the kids are climbing on the walls, we had great fun at Leos Lekland😉

To die for!!!

Got my hands on the cutest little Rain coat, inspired from Claude Monet, for Cleo at Happy garden in Paris.

Daddys oldtime favorit, the wind jacket that you fold into is own pocket from K-way, the kids calls it “The magic sausage jacket”;)

This little ballerina tutu from Mini Rodini started off as a body, now i cut it of to a little tank top and princess will be able to wear it one more summer, YES!

Preparing for a mini summer?? Cheek out all the great NEWS!

Another of my sweet as sugar brands is How to kiss a frog

Mum I don´t like the colour…. how many times haven you heard that one?

Pink, violet, yellow?? Here it´s all up to the small creator, colour it in, how ever you like it!!

Great idea form Catemini.

I know it´s spring and soon summer, but I can’t help loving these booties from Emu Australia and it did acctually snow for a while today!!!

Well the list can continue for ever but this was it for this time, ill be back with some more XXSmall-fashion soon!

To weave or not to weave….?

2012-04-16 — Mitt liv

 I totally fell in loved with these great eco and recycled objects I found on Green Furniture.

T-shirt Chair is like a large colourful rag rug, an easy chair made of left over clothes or rags. Every chair has its own unique colour and texture one can change now and then, and the chair slowly takes of your history. A “naked” chair is perfect for us that have a lot of clothes that we don’t wear any longer but has to much memories to be thrown away, like the T-shirt my husband wore the day I gave birth to our three kids, old blankets from my childhood and 1970´s rugs from my mothers kitchen!

Someone called this a Slowblog…

Check it out here!

This is how it locks naked!

Jar Lamp uses recycled jam jars with their lids in a refined but simple and iconic way.

A pouf with a gorgeous back story. It is made from eight recycled coffee bean sacks with original prints from coffee plantations around the world. I can see this in front of me in my kids future playroom!
