Mio 9 months today=)

Time sure flies! 

9 months ago - March 27th - Mio came out to this world and blessed us with his lovely presence;=)

9 months carrying a baby feels longer than having a baby 9 months outside of my belly, haha!
Here he was still inside;=)

Anyhow, Mio is a happy child and now at 9 months he´s occupied with learning how to walk. He can walk around the couch and table by holding on with at least one hand, He´s started to say some more sounds that sound a little more like words. He crawls really fast and he is really good using his "pinch-grip", that is to hold something between his thumb and pointing finger;=)

So happy 9 months in this world, my dear son;=) 

Love you to the moon and back times a million!!!

My x-mas gift to the CHILDHOOD foundation

Hi all,

In Christmas times I feel that I want to give to those children who doesn´t have it all and as you know, I already support CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION when I sell my clothes in my vintage store by buying their CHILDHOOD bracelets. 

For x-mas I want to give something extra and therefore me and Nemo went to their website and built our very own SNOWMAN and donated to their really important work.

I have put up our snow man here in the blog as a banner and if you feel you want to give something, no matter if it´s just buying a bracelet or give a small donation, simply click the banner below and go to their website;=)

(translation of the text in the photo is: This is our x-mas gift to CHILDHOOD . Build your own snowman at

From me, Johan and my children I want to send all my love and hope for a better x-mas for all the children of the world.

My x-mas spotify list for you all;=)

Hi my dear ones and do you feel the x-mas joy coming? I do!

I went and bought lots of toys for the little ones before my crossfit exercise today and tomorrow its time to get the x-mas tree and make some candy! So what else but have a nice Spotify playlist to accompany these days?

I made one for you all;=)

 And remember what X-mas is about too. Not the gifts but family, joy and peacefulness!

Lots of love!

And my last...

…interview before x-mas is done! Ta-da! Lots of interviews done and it´s been really nice and positive responses on the album, so happy for that;=)

Here in Helsingborg we still have so warm winter weather -rain and around 6-7 plus degrees which is really unusual for december. On x-mas eve they say 8 plus degrees and sun!! How weird but I like it! I don't want any snow, just bring me spring straight away!

Snow is beautiful, so don´t get me wrong- I just don´t like it from all the practical sides, like driving my car in the snow, driving Mio in the pram trying to push through all the snow, having snow everywhere in the car, in the home…

But then the nicer sides with snow is that it gets lighter outside from the white snow, it´s fun to make snow balls and snow angels and go with a snow racer downhill, snowflakes are SO beautiful and it gives that x-mas feeling

But if I have to chose snow or not I choose no snow;=)

Sleep well my dear ones and hey - tomorrow it´s the day before the day before the day before the DAY!!


And here are the photos

Here´s the article with the photos;=)

Christmas is coming

Hi all;=)

Oh, how fast time always flies in December;=) It´s the same thing every year. Everywhere in every job people have the most stress this month and then on top of that all the x-mas gifts and food and so on need to be fixed. 

For me, it´s hectic since there are so much to fix with my upcoming album SHINE so I do lots of interviews this week and at the same time all the things that need to be done for the albums cover and so on. Credits and thanks to write;=)

But I LOVE it! it´s a dream come true and I enjoy it and I feel so truly grateful and blessed!

Later today there will be some NEWS coming out so stay tuned here, in my Official Facebook and Instagram!

Lots of love to you all and do not stress to much about x-mas. Remember that christmas is about joy and love and not mostly about the materialistic things. Even if the stores do believe it is!
