This is me playing cool. But I do feel very comfortable in this picture.. Cuz I’m wearing clothes I love wearing.. Vans, super soft flared corduroy jeans and a green cotton sweater. I’m happy being back to the mood I had when growing up. I was longboarding, snowboarding and skiing and hanging around with skater boys. I even had loose jeans where you could see my L.G.B undies from J.C Rabbit when I was 12. My mom didn’t get it. When I graduated from Rytmus musikkonservatorium at Mariatorget in Sweden I left for Australia to surf. All by myself. I hated getting breast early, I was the first one in my class. I pressed them down under big tees and cried when my mother wanted to take me to buy bras. Tomboy growing up. But I’m very feminine on the inside I think.

I did not care about what I was wearing when I was a child, as long it wasn’t uncomfortable clothing I couldn’t move in. I hated dresses and stockings and ballerina shoes and loved sneakers and jeans. My little sister Amanda was my complete opposite. She wore skirts over her overall and cried if she couldn’t wear a dress every single second. Some things we´re definitely born with.
I wonder who my kids are. What they will be like. Its cool. To see how what they will love and not love and how they will be so different from who you were and are even if they’ve been living inside you.

Here in Switzerland we live next to a farm, view over the mountains and the Zurich lake. It´s not weird that I’m feeling more grounded when living in the middle of Stockholm or on Manhattan. I don’t constantly get as much information or inspiration and that made me insanely bored when we had just moved here. But after time I calmed down and realized that when I don’t receive and receive and recieve all the time, I can actually be more creative because I’m protecting my energy much more here. Its hard to become stressed (the normal city stress) where we´re currently at.

I got together with Thule for this year, I’m the brand ambassador and I feel like this is something my younger me would completely approve with. We have a bomb as roof box for the skis and a rack with a lock for Gustafs paddle board so he can leave it on the car wherever we go. We live five minutes down from the sea so when Spring comes that’s what’s gonna happen..

I do miss the vibe, the heels, the sirens, the bars the constant flow of energy in NYC… But at least this is the complete contrast. High low / low high. Well see how long we stay in Switzerland, but fr now we´re good!

You, my readers. Where do you live? Are you happy with where you live or do you dream of living somewhere else? I don’t know where I’m the most at home yet.. Will we ever know? Ir will we ever fulfill our deepest dream of where we would like to end up? (sorry for getting crazy philosophical here but I love conversation.. A blog is sometimes just a one man show and I would love to talk <3

Jag bor med man och barn i Stockholm. Jag är extreeemt hemmakär och flyttar ogärna på mig om jag trivs men plötsligt ser jag att vi hade kunnat ha det bra någon annan stans också. Nu känns det som att mina studier kan styra var vi hamnar, inom rimliga gränser:):)
