… What’s the best part of life right now?
It’s been tougher to be positive this week. I’ve had my super-pms and take premalex (anti-depressants) and struggle with my mood. If it’s tough to feel happiness I try to think about what I’m grateful for instead. It’s a good habit when you’re feeling down. I’m grateful for a cozy weekend with the kids and Ida. We’ve always been there for each other through the years and through different phases of life. We’ve both had a tough time recently and it was nice to get some time behind closed walls, reflect and set new goals.
The PMS isn’t fun but I’ve learned to live with it. It’s 7-10 days of the month and they feel dark but I’ve learned to not give myself too much responsibility on these days and think rationally. Before I figured out how to manage it, everything felt terrible all the time. I know now that it’s because of the hormones so it becomes easier to manage. My mood is better after I changed my diet but some phases are still tough.
EY regional final which we won!
… What are you looking forward to?
I’m looking forward to a fun with with two galas (It’ll be fun to wear beautiful dresses!). On Monday (tomorrow), I’m participating in the Guldbagge-gala with my best friend and then I’m having dinner. I was flying to Marbella on Tuesday for work but I decided to pull the brakes. There’s been a lot of social work. I have an interview with EY Entrepreneur of the Year on Thursday at the blue hall. Pingis and I have a chance to win the award for this year’s female superstars. Our American retailer is going to visit Sweden on Friday for a day full of meetings. On Friday Evening Pingis and I have a work dinner at hoe with Conde Nast who will bevisiting from London.
A very exciting and important evening.
Life with a chef 😍
…What feels scary?

At Supper in Åre
…What have you been eating this week?
I was in Åre this week and had dinner at Supper with the whole gang. It was divine. My favourite was the cauliflower tacos. I usually eat clean food but I ate a lot of sweet potato fries, chilli mayo and meringues. I can tell immediately that my body doesn’t like a lot of sugar and fat but it was delicious in the moment. I notice how much I appreciate my healthy lifestyle because I become unbalanced when my diet changes.
Italian alps last year!
… Best way to relax?
Spending time in Åre and Umeå has been good for relaxation. There’s something special about the mix of snow and a warm fireplace. That kind of relaxation beats a swimmingpool in the sunshine. I can’t wait until the next trip to the alps. I’d love to visit Gstaad again, Verbier or Cervinia before the season is over. I want to spend time with my friend sin a chalet and eat delicious cheeses Last year I visite Cervinia with Sheila, Pingis and David. It was wonderful.
…This week’s best routine?
I’ve been meditating for fifteen minutes each evening. I love it! It’s so awesome to notice your progress! I used to find it difficult to take 20 breaths without losing focus. After that, five minutes became another challenges. Now, fifteen minutes fly by. During the last minutes, I always manage to get in touch with my intuition. It helps me navigate. Creating space for myself is the best investment I’ve made. I highly recommend meditation for everybody. Download Headspace!
Planning ahead of the Australia launch.
… What goals do you have at the moment?
Receiving an award on Thursday of course! And launching Löwengrip in Australia. It feels surreal. Privately, I’m aiming for a me-day on Saturday. It’s another child-free weekend. I’m going to exercise, buy a delicious lunch to take home, have a bath, read and walk around in my pyjamas until it’s time to meet my friends for dinner. I can’t wait!
