Manchester

My alarm went off really early this morning so I went up and took a shower. Emelie arrived at my hotel room by half past five and got me ready. When you’re travelling a lot during the year, Arlanda VIP makes everything comfortable because you don’t have to deal with the big security control with all the people. For me, Arlanda VIP is just one step closer to flying privately from Bromma but there’s another few months before I can do that.

Breakfast this morning! It’s been a while since I ate caviar, I’d forgotten how delicious it is.

Today, we have a full day in Machester. I’m flyin with Emelie who is my MUA, Lukas who is responsible forour Online Shop but also our website with all retailers, Dinah who is our esthetician and Julia who is in charge of our content at Löwengrip. We’re going to visit our retailer Beauty Bay for training about Löwengrip and produce content for their website and channels. It’ll be a lot of fun. We’re there all day and we’re back home around midnight.

Have a good Tuesday, hugs!

Robot influencers, Hotel Diplomat and Pregnant Stomach

We’re doing something incredibly fun right now. We’re building social media clones of myself for Löwengrip. There’s a lot of robot influencers but I have a vision about how we can make it better and today we started building everything. It’s like The Sims all over again – I don’t want to stop! She won’t look like the picture below but it’s more to show the things you can do.

1

I’ve named my first clone Gabrielle. You’ll get to meet her soon! I’d guess that within a few years it won’t matter if what you see on your newsfed is real or not, human or robot, as long as it’s something that inspires you. I have a big vision about my clones and I’m looking forward to launching them. It might some crazy to some of you but I love that my 69 year old COO understood the concept immediately. Technology is about your approach, not your age.
More about the clones later 🙂

I’ll be living at Hotel Diplomat this week, it’s messy at home with the move and as the security alarm is being moved I can’t live at home. Hampus lives around the corner and I could have stayed with him but I need my alone time. And we’ve also just had a whole week together. I’m travelling a lot this week but on Thursday we have a date night I’m looking forward to!

I bought dinner from Pepstop. I really love that place, everything is vegan. I pepstop rolls and another salad. I love green and ocld food. Someone said to me that it’s because I’m a fiery Pitta-person, or I just like green things.

I’m going to Manchester tomorrow to record content for our retailer Beauty Bay so I needed new, lovely nails. I went for dark red on my hands and feet. I do a manicure and pedicure every other Monday.

I worked during the treatment – check this out! Nordic Tech House have been nominated by Consid for Equalizer of the Year. There’s going to be a big gala at the Blue Hall in November. There aren’t many tech companies with so many female employees (we’re 50/50)

I’m going to do some more work and then try to sleep earlier. My alarm is set for 5Am. I have a stomach ache and have had it on and off for weeks. It’s getting worse. I have a cyst that’s causing me problems on one of my ovaries. The stomach gets swollen and people are asking me if I’m pregnant all the time (I don’t understand how people dare asking a woman that question). I’m going to look at it on Wednesday again and hopefully I can have it surgically removed. Ugh. I’ll never forget the pain from the last one that burst. It’s worse than giving birth. Surgery would be a good thing.

Many hugs!

Story of My Homes

This morning, I said goodbye to the green house on Klotmurklevägen. It’s actually such a weird name for a street. The kids and I walked around and said goodbye to each room. I’m so grateful I get help with the moving process. When I move into the new house on Sunday, everything will be ready. I can’t wait until I’m there, have a look around and crawl into bed. It feels so surreal to wake up there on Monday morning and then walk down to make a Nespresso!

I’ve had so many homes in my life, jumping around a lot. Can you manage all the addresses?

My first home Kammakargatan in Vasastan (14 years), then I lived with my first boyfriend Marcel at Engelbrektsgatan on Östermalm (I was 15 years old) with his mom until we broke up. After that I shared a one bedroom apartment on Gjutargatan with a friend (I was 16), and then I moved in with Nils who lived in a student apartment by Lappkärsberget (he was studying law). We had so many silver-fish there that we had a rule saying if we dropped something on the floor it immediately went into the wash. One time I saw one in the cutlery. Ugh.

We then found a sub-le two bedroom on De Geersgatan by Gärdet. We loved it there. We had many summer evenings at the top and enjoyed watching the sun set. After 6 months our contract ended and then we moved to another two bed on Oskarsvägen on Lidingö. We lived above a pizzeria and I told myself that each piece of clothing I owned smelled of pizza all the time.

When we broke up (the day before I turned 20) I wanted to live in the city again, so I bought my first apartment. A one bedroom on Roslagsgatan in Vasastan. I was so happy! While I was waiting to moved I lived in a sublet by Mosebacke on Södermalm for two months. On the 6th of december 2010 I put the keys i the door to my own apartment and it’s still one of the best days of my life. Owning my own partment felt so huge ad safe for me as I moved away from home early. For the first few weeks I just had a large carpet from Missoni. And my bedroom on the loft.

Kappa 2NDDAY, blouse Zara, jeans Andiata, heels By Malene Birger and bag ATP

I moved away a year later. I had two stalkers who made me feel unsafe all the time and started CBT to handle the evets (one was watching me from the letter box regularly, a horrible fear and the other sent horrible letters). After that I bought a two bedroom on Riddargatan on Östermalm (21 years old). The housing society had more gates and cameras everywhere. I met Odd when I lived there we bought a three-bedroom apatment together on St Eriksgatan at Kungsholmen. That’s where we had Gillis and when I was expecting Sally we bought and duplex-apartment at Alströmergatan.
But with two toddlers we were looking forward to a villa. We wanted to live in a suburb closer to city centre (10 KM) and where you wouldn’t have to deal with queues. Lidingö was perfect and that’s where we are now.

Processed with VSCO with dog1 preset

I’ve gone through a classic housing-career. I bought my first one bed fo 1,9 million. I took my share from my company and borrowed the rest. Then when I sold and bought a new place after 12-24 months I’ve made a profit. Half a million in profit of 12 months on Alströmergatan and 1,6 million profit on Alströmergatan. Our wooden house on Lidingö was bought for 8,7 and renovated and sold for 11 million. You have to get into the swing of it and have energy for the move.

The new house won’t gain a profit in the same way for a few years. But that’s not why I bought the house. I want to live there for a long time. We have a differet kind of economy now, worse state of the market and higher interest. You have to follow the state of the market. It’s a bit like being on a boat on the sea. That’s also how I invest, I go with society cyles. We’ve had an upward hill so I bought a better house and invested in a lot of start ups. Now we’re going down hill and I focus more on building value. During a low state of the market it’s important to save money when others don’t. That’s how you invest wisely and make better purchases.

Sorry…side track

My next dream purchase is on the French Rivera but that won’t happen for a few years yet. I love goals!

The Last Night

…The flight back to Stockholm went really well, both kids fell asleep on me for two hours. I read in the meanwhile. Win win!

I managed to read two books in the sun this week. I usually read two books per week. Reading is just as important to me as exercise. Without it, I’m not in balance. This week I read two Swedish biographies.

I can recommend both books! It was extremely fun reading Persbradt’s book because he talks about Jakobsberg a lot. Mom and dad grew up there so it felt a bit like home to read about Persbrandt’s childhood. I lived at Sångvägen and Birgittavägen during my first few years. And then by the Maria-church. He names these streets a lot in the book.  My grandmother still lives by the commuter-train station and my randfather lived up on Söderhöjden but he’s not alive aymore. I remember so clearly how I took the bus from Skälby a few years ago (where my mom moved when dad moved into the city) to go shopping in Jakobsberg’s Centre with a friend. I might have been 11-12 years old? I bought my first bra at Kappahl in ”Jakan” It was light-yellow.

When we got back home Hayley took care of the kids and I went to exercise. I haven’t exercised all week and I could feel my body itching. I did a spin-cycle class today, it was so nice.

 

 

When I got back 1,5 later the kids were building lego. We’re going through a Ninjago phase at home. The kids had already had dinner and were munching on popcorn.

 


Oven-roased vegetables and tofu! We talked about it’s the last night in the house! Tomorrow the kids are going to O and on Sunday I’m moving. I’ll be travelling in the meanwhile (Manchester, Malmö och Marbella) so it’ll be my last night here too!

I remember how happy Odd and I were when we bought the house and started renovating! Our own house! It was a different life back then!

 

Goodbye house! I won’t miss you because I feel like I’m done but I’ll miss my neighbours! Selling the house will be the last part of closing the previous chapter! I’m starting a new phase in my dream home! It feels like Christmas!

When I get back from Marbella late Sunday evening, my body guard Magnus will pick me up and drive me to the house. It’ll be my first night there. My team are starting the move this week and want me ou of the way in the mean ime. Gaaaaaah! The joy! 🙂

Speaking of moving and journeys. It took me 28 years to move from the tall apartment blocks in a rough Stockholm suburb to buying my dream home on Lidingö, It’s a fast journey to make! Can you call it a class-trip even if I never finished High School? The word feels a bit stale even if it’s one really fast since dad drove around in the Ice-cream truck (the extra job I got to tag along on) until the daily life I’m living ow.

If I’m proud? It’s more like a feeling of breathing out, in relief.

What I Think The Kids Will Work With

Last day! We’ve been at the poolside in the morning, packed for going back home and went to Armani Hotel for dinner (Amal) and show the kids the fountain show

I don’t have a great picture but I’ve finally managed to style my own hair. Usually I book blow drying on my trips but I got Dysons new hair product Airwrao (I’ll show you a picture later) and five minutes later the hair looked as if it was styled. I an so impressed! It looks like a curling iron and it blows the hair and then it’s done. I look forward to practicing with the curling iron and getting the look Emelie does every moning.

 

 

I can really feel in my heart how life has changed. I’m here with Hampus and not the kids’ dad. It doesn’t hurt but I’m reminded of a different chapter in my life. Bringing Hampus into the kids’ life has been a big decision but we’ve taken it together and on the kids” pace. The kids have seen him now and again during a year. The journey has gone really well and that makes me happy. One of the kids said ”You are like a baby-sitting dad even though you live in the city.”

A drink at Armani Hotel. More like the kind of hotels we like. Next time! On the picture you can see Gillis ordering more juice. They’ve gotten so good at English! I’m strict about ordering things they want to eat /drink on their own. If there’s a word they don’t know I’ll help. They also have to say hello to the staff at the hotel and say thank you. I think it’s important to see people.

My little daughter. 3,5 years old and a miki version of myself. If I could guess what careers the kids will have in the future (I’m probably wrong) I think Sally will take over Löwengrip, generation 2. She’s already indoctrinated into the fashion world. I am so impressed by her level of negotiation and drive for being 3.5 years old. I see a lot of myself in her. I could talk over anyone as a kid. Gillis is more like an engineer. It’s a lot of fun to watch him programme on a child’s level and build lego robots he controls with his ipad. I can see him as a nordic tech house colleague. Everything is so natural for him. He’s good at languages. When I ask Gillis what he wants to do in the future he tells me he wants to build robots. I definitely think he’ll be building things. I want to support him in learning not only normal languages but also computer languages (binary code for the letter A is 0100 0001). It’s fun for me too. Gillis learns faster than I do.

I need to sleep now though, we’re flying back tomorrow!

Restless mom

Hello to you! There’s not much to say about our Friday in Dubai. We went swimming and hung around. But our status is; a VERY well rested mom, two happy children and a Hampus who is probably a little tired after so many days with us. We often see eachother occasionally, have dinner together or spend a Saturday doing something fun the whole gang. To spend time with the children is quite intensive. He hasn’t said anything yet, but I see that it’s a little more demanding than usual he he.

r 1

Scarf Hermes, shirt from Ralph Lauren and bathing suit Ia Bon

From my point of view, I’m a little restless here in the sun. I have a higher pace than my children, so I make an effort to slow down. They like to bathe, play something quietly with each other, or play intellectual games (how would different animals look if you mix them, for example a spider with a cat, who knows how to say hello in most languages, ​​or you try to name everything you know that’s yellow – the harvest of the evening), though I would love to run around and play but they don’t. Sometimes I get an urge that I want to call all parents (even on airplanes) to ”leave your children to me, I have too much energy, so you get to rest.”

In fact, I would need to go running to get rid of the extra energy but I haven’t prioritized it. May take a few laps tomorrow.

The hotel (Anantara) is huge! It’s an OK hotel but not a super hotel despite the five stars. I love our villa on the water, perfect size for us four and the kids love to be ”at home”. Some may think it’s scary with water around, but my children are not the climbing ones and they would never even try (but of course we have them under supervision). The hotel itself, however, is not as luxurious as I’m used to. Not so fresh pool areas and quite dreary surroundings. In addition, the service is not very good. But the kids are happy (they love the buggies driving us everywhere) and I’m super in love with Hampus so we could have been anywhere 🙂

Next weekend I’m at the Marbella Club, it’s my absolute favorite hotel!

Your Cycle

Partnered with Natural Cycles

You guys already know Natural Cycles is a contraceptive method, and has been for about a year, with Apoteket AB. It was also launched at Apoteket Hjärtat and Kronans Apotek. Three of the biggest pharmacy chains in Sweden, which is a lot of fun. It’s really good that an alternative option like NC exists and is available everywhere.

They’re not only launching contraceptive methods, but these pharmacies also bring in ovulation tests from Natural Cycles’ stock. Ovulatio tests, helping out if you are using Natural Cycles to get pregnant and to avoid pregnancy. As someone who uses it to avoid pregancy, the ovulation tests give me more green days, this is to find luteinising hormone in your body before ovulation happens. Here is where you can read more about them, how they work and why you do the tests. NC teaches you a lot about what happens in your body during the cycles and all hormones. It’s a good way to get to know yourself better.

If you’re over 18 years old, you can try Natural Cycles and see if it’s something for you here.There isn’t always a contraceptive for everyone and nothing is 100% certain. Natural Cycles is 93% certain. Remember that condoms only protects you against STDs. When you sign up for a yearly subscription (500sek) you et an ovulatioDet finns inget preventivmedel som passar för alla, och inget som är 100% säkert. Natural Cycles är 93% säkert.

Legoland

Here are the photos from today:

Waking up like this is lovely. We have a double bed in the villa and then two smaller beds (you can see Gillis in the photo). The villa is on the water and we have glass floor in some parts of the house. I think it’s a bit scary to walk on that. Especially in the dark.

We decided to skip swimming today and visited Legoland instead! We played for hours and I can really recommend visiting the park. My only complaint is the really strict rules. Sally missed out on 0,5 cm (!) to go on ride where the restriction was 105 cm and normally I’m able to convince or bribe my way through (if you only knew how far you get with a bit of cash in hand) but I couldn’t here. I was a bit annoyed about it but decided to let it go. There was a lot of things to do. The favourite was a 4D cinema with Ninjago. On the way home Gillis bought a bunch of Ninjago lego which he is looking forward to assembling.

After that we visited Souk Madinat. Sally bought more shoes. It was so beautiful there! We had dinner at the hotel (six restaurants to choose from), we had arabic and Indian food. Delicious and easy when you are a vegetarian. I realised this is my first holiday in the sun without alcohol and I haven’t even thought about that. Usually I’ve had a glass of wine for lunch and one for dinner, all week. It’s so liberating to not drink. I sleep better on vacation and I have more energy. I really can’t see myself ever going back to alcohol again. That and deciding to skip meat has been some of my best life decisions.

Day Two

Our days over here are pretty slow. We’ve been hanging out at the hotel and spent the day swimming. Half the time in the pool and then in the sea. Yesterday vi visited Dubai Mall to buy toys. I told the kids they could choose whatever they wanted in the shop. We were probably there for an hour and tried all sorts. Gillis bought a robot and Sally a doll with a lot of accessories. Then she had a kid’s manicure that’s easily removed with soap (Gillis didn’t wanted it so he went with Hampus to try robots) and then we bought heels and earrings. Sally thinks it’s so much fun to look like her mom.

I could talk about gender roles and how Sally is affected by ideals but I don’t want to right now. The kids are playing and I want to update you guys and go through my emails in as short a time as possible. I want to join in on the kids game 🙂

I LOVED the coat and the shoes! Sally loves shopping clothes. She was in heaven yesterday,

 

 

Their supply of dolls….

We had a late dinner at Cheesecake factory at Dubai Mall, I ordered a carrot cake for desert and I almost cried because it was so good. The cheesecake with nutella and the cheesecake with toffee sauce was also really good. That’s been our first two days here. We want to visit Legoland and Jurassic Park. Has anyone been there with kids? Can you suggest anymore activities with children?

By the way, I got a question if Hayley is with us and she isn’t. She was going with us to Australia but because the launch was postponed we’ve also postponed the journey (Pingis and Hannah are there) so I decided to go to Dubai over fall break instead with the kids and Hampus. It’s the first trip for all four of us and it’s very cosy. I love my home-team but it’s important to have alone time together as well.

  1. Hei! Reiser til Dubai i dag og lurer på hvor du kjøpte kåpen til datteren din? Det er jo et hav av barnebutikker i Dubai Mall😄

Changing Address

Partnered with Svensk Adressändring

We are moving to the new house next week. It’s gone so quickly since I bought the house and it’ll be fantastic to finally move. Gillis and Sall are as excited as I am. There’s a few different things you need to think about when you move. One of those is changing your address. Other than notifying change of address, the Swedish Address Change office have two clever services I’ve been using in our move. The first one is making sure your post from the old address gets redirected to the new address. They send everthing from the day you move and that way you won’t miss out on important bills ad other payment you might get through the post. They also tell all companies and post-offices that you’ve changed address. You will be saving a bit of money especially if you consider the bills you might have missed. You can also redirect your post even if you aren’t moving permanently. If you have a summerhouse where you spend the summer holiday you can get your post sent to that address. Very smooth. You can read more about re-directing your post here.

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Another clever service I hadn’t heard about before isAddress-lock. That means you lock your personal identity number by using BankID. The address lock stops someone other than yourself from ordering the re-direction of post, change of address or stock up on your post. If something like that happens you get an email and a text noification. Because ID hacking is more common a service like this makes it more difficult for those trying to steal your identity. It’s also handy that via BankID you don’t get physical letter you have to fill in and send back. It doesn’t cost anything at all and if I’ve learned anything it’s that it’s always worth investing in your safety.

Swedish Address Change have also created a check list for those of us moving so you don’t miss anything important. You can view the list here!

The Palm

I’m actually going to skip long posts over here. I’m oing to enjoy six days of vacation instead! No appointments to keep track of or schedule to follow, just go with what the kids want.

The water is so warm! Swimsuit, Chanel.

I’ve been in the swimming pool as much as the kids. It’s so liberating to play.

Kids who get to run free.

We’re staying in a lovely villa…

…On the water! There’s a bit indoors with a glass floor where the kids lay down to watch the fishes. It’s a lot of fun! Talk to you later!

Dubai

We’re off to Dubay today! Odd dropped off the kids here this morning. My team at home have been helping me sort out the packing, breakfast and lunch for everone. I can’t do that with my ADHD. We’re leaving for the airport soon. The kids have their own suitcases and they’re so proud of them. They’ve been practicing dragging them around all mornig. My only worry is Sally’s passport. She’s 6 months old on it, so there’s a risk for a bit of trouble. It’s valid and she looks like herself but the question is if the staff at Dubai’s airport will agree. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

Halloween 2018 Part 2

Partnered with Törnell & Bar, DJ Patrick Leksell, Uber & Fotograf Rikard Landrin

Here are some more photos:

 

 

 

And a few guests…

 

My sister and her boyfriend came dressed up Grease:

We had a free bar during the evening which really made the night. We chose to hire Törnell & Bar again. Together we created five cocktails the guests could choose from. Classic Whiskey sour but also other sour and fresh. Törnell & Bar have a fantastic service where you can order ice they created art from. I love small details that make the evening feel a bit more special. We also offered alcohol free alteratives. I drank virgin mary’s all evening but not too many, as I couldn’t pee because of my outfit. I had to hold on for six hours!

Our DJ for the evening was Patrik Leksell, he played fantastic music (famous DJ who plays at all of Stockholm’s big nightclubs. He played a wonderful mix of music everyoe knew which I love. Hiring a DJ brings the atmosphere of the party to the next leve.

 

 

Our photographer was Rikard Landrin. He was so talented! We also had two sharingboxes (photo booths) which were a success!

Most of the guests got on the bus home around 1AM. Those of us staying overight at the castle had an afterparty until 3am. It was so cosy when I was going to bed and had to tiptoe past my little sister ad her boyfriend who slept in the room next to ours (you had to pass through to get to ou room). It’s a lot of fun having a sister who has turned 18! After ejoying a cosy breakfast together on Sunday we were picked up by wonderful Uber carsr to bring us home safely.

What a Halloween party!

Partnered with Storyhouse, Uber, mat.se,Westinbuss & Buttericks

I’m so happy! I have a lot of endorphines in my body from last night. The halloween party was an incredible success. 150 guests were invited, all employees, friends, neighbours and people I work with. 16 of my closest stayed over night which was reall cosy. There are so many photos so I’ll split the post into two parts.

The castle had such a lovely and haunting environment that was a perfect fit for Halloween. We rent the castle from Storyhouse via Airnb who are the event organisers. You only rent the space and you’re alloweed to have your own staff, catering, bar, DJ and decorations which makes the party more personal. I wanted it to feel like my last Halloween party at home.

A group of us stayed over and we had booked luxury Uber cars. So they arrived at 5PM to pick everyone up. I really love Uber! Their ”multi-destinations” service is so awesome when you want to travel together and stop along the way to drop off/pick up friends. Hampus and I were picked up by Sheila and Rasmus. It was so much fun to get into the right mood together. My very best friend!

When we arrived UberEats had delivered vegan salads and other snacks for everyone (from Sally Voltaire & Systrar). They delivered 80 (!) bags from mat.se with all sorts of things from the party. It’s so smooth to order everything when there’s a lot of stuff needs. Fresh dainty sandwiches from Pontus Catering (Pontus Group)

All guests arrived around 9PM with transport organised with Westinbuss. We’d also organised transport back so everyone got home safely.

We had the world’s best Buttericks at the scene who organised the party with us. They decorated the whole castle and made my fantastic costume. One of them was dressed up to go around and scare people.

Cyst

Hampus and I went out for dinner at Jim & Jacob yesterday. Amazing food. It was a quick dinner though because I wanted to by pralines before they closed and popcorn for the movie A Star Is Born.

The movie was fantastic! I cried so much.

I’ve spent the whole day in Hampus’ bed. WE’ve ordered food and watched Who Is America. Unfortunately I’ve had a lot of stomach pain and I think it’s a cyst. I saw my gynaecologist a while ago and they saw a large cyst on one of my ovaries. The plan was to let it stay but now I think it’s making my stomach swell up and it really hurt. I’ve had issues with cysts a lot through the years and it really hurts when they burst. I’m hoping I’ll be alright during the holiday, as soon as I’m home again I’ll have to look at having it removed. Has anyone else had a cyst removed?

In any case, something fun is happening tonight. My Halloween party! You’ll have to follow my instastory during the day 🙂

He’s Free Again

I was so happy today. I was going to walk around town alone to celebrate that my stalker is imprisoned. Have a bit of a Friday-wander. But the we found out he was released and is around Sturegallerian (near the office) so I had to ask Magnus (bodyguard) to come to the office. How can you be arrested for assault, have a police warrant for stalking and still be released afterwards.

It’s awful.

Oh well, I have to pull through to go between meetings. I’ve been listening to a company wanting to take in capital, participated in Breakit’s podcast, met two companies who flew to Sweden for a meeting with us. A gang from Denmark and a few frenchmen. A technical company and a privat airline, it’s finally time.

Today’s look. Shirt from New House. Skirt from Hugo Boss and coat from Andiata. I love my watch so much. I have a bit of office time now, and the signing this years book-keeping and block things off with the colleagues. I’m in Dubai next week.

I’m looking forward to a date night with Hampus and then my big Halloween party at Wenngarn Castle tomorrow. 150 dressed up guests, free bar, DJ and 16 of us are staying overnight at the casle. It’ll be so much fun!

He’s Been Arrested

I went to Hampus’ place yesterday after I’d finished working at home. I usuall do a bit of work in the evening but I decided to ignore the computer and have evening together. My workday started at 6.30 anyway. We ordered food from Nyko Kitchen (a really good vegan option) and we talked for a long time.

During the evening, we found out that my stalker has been arrested:

Img 0898.jpg

The actual capture had nothing to do with me but it was to do with assault of another person. So horrible. I hope the police will keep him imprisoned from now on. I didn’t want to write abou it but he’s been around me every day lataely. He’s not right outside the door anymore but on the street and looking towards the house. He’ll stand there for a minute or so and then walk away. Both myself and my neighbours have been taking photos every time. I’ve been trying to live my life as usual even though I can see him outside the house. I always turn off the light when we head upstairs so he can’t see in through the window. I hope he will get a restraining order.

Anyway, I chose to exercise this morning. Nothing too heavy but focused on movement and stretching with my PT. My body was so stiff. I’m having a Friday at the office with all my colleagues. It’s been a long time since I’ve been here. Tonight, Hampus and I are going to dinner then the cinema. It’s so lovely with Friday.

Stemcells in the Future

 Partnered with Cellaviva 

I’ve told you about Cellaviva before, a company I’m part owner of because of Nordic Tech House. Those of you following me know I have a keen interest in health and that’s where I want to invest. New techniques and methods to keep us healthy and live longer is the most important thing.

Cellaviva is a really interesting company because their services are new in Sweden but they’ve existed in the rest of the world for a while. There’s a lot of stemcell research happening right now and are used to help cure more than 80 diseases. Thousands of stemcell studies using experimental methods are ongoing global and using your own stemcells will be the best methods because there’s a less chance for side effects. Treatment for Cerebral Palsy, autism, MS, Alzheimers, cancer, diabetes. I’m convinced that they’re right about the fact that having access to our own stemcells will have positive effects for us later in life. Long term, I think Cellaviva’s service will be used in many areas because stemcell research is progressing. I want to be a part of that journey

box cellavivia

Cellaviva’s big challenge lies in spreading the information. Giving birth is a unique opportunity to save stemcells, and expecting parents are susceptible to information about family saving during a few months of the pregnancy. Because stemcell saving is such a new thing, it can be seen as complicated but that’s a misunderstanding. Other than the technical part of the research done by NTH, it’s important to meet future customers. They’ll be participating at Sweden’s largest children’s fair:
UnderBARA BARN. Keep an eye out on my instastory, a few people will be able to try the service for free

Dubai On Monday

I landed at Arlanda Airport a short while ago. My bodyguard, Magnus, picked me up and we left the airpot and then went home. In the hallway at home, I was greeted by this.

…the kids’ suitcases, all packed and ready to leave for Dubai on Monday! Having help at home is so wonderful. The kids are with Odd until Monday morning but we’re flying to Dubai in the afternoon. It’ll be the kids, myself and Hampus going and it’s the first trip with both Hampus and the kids. We’re only staying until Sunday next week but it’ll be lovely with a few days of sun, play and swimming.

I’m going to make myself a snack, then do a bit of work and after that I’m going to visit Hampus. I’m sleeping there this weekend. It’s a bit of a luxury to hang out in the city at the weekends and then have a bit of a country-life here.

Halmstad

We’ve had an amazing 24-hours here in Tylösand and Halmstad. A wonderful team-dinner yesterday with a lot of laughter and an early work-day in Halmstad. The alarm went off at 4.30AM this morning, I had a shower, made coffee and then Emelie came over around 5AM to help me get ready. Around half past six we drove to Halmstad where I was giving a breakfast lecture at a large arena. It was Halmstad’s Industry and Commerce in the audience and over 500 people came to listen despite being really early in the morning. Afterwads I had several interviews and a live-stream in radio. I was done with the day’s jobs at 8.40AM

The whole team are flying back home soon!

Hotel Tylösand

It’s a bit awesome to see how you can plan for being ill. After yesterday’s appearances on stage my cold came back right away and my head feels a bit heavy today. I’m spending the day resting today and doing absolutely nothing. I have to be up at 4.45AM tomorrow to attend a breakfast lecture for 500 people in Halmstad. I can’t cancel those kind of jobs because it takes a lot of planning from the organisers, so I’ll have to pull through.

I remember when I recieved the price for Sweden’s most powerful industry and commerce woman. I had a high fever at home and no voice. I had a gala to attend, interviews to give and appearing on TV the next morning from 5AM. Two full-on days. I have cortisone with me if I start to feel worse but I think one calm day will be enough.

Simon and I are at Hotel Tylösand. Sascha, Emelie, Ida and Charlotte will come here. We planned a team day here a long time ago to coincide with the lecture. Everyone has booked SPA treatments and later we are going to dinner. It’ll be cosy.

But before it’s time for dinner I am going to stay under my duvet with my book. The view from my room is incredible.

12 Hours

My 12 hour work day went well despite having 38 degree fever. First an interview with Setterwalls law firm in Gothenburg and then Kicks. It’s 10PM now so I’m going check out to read. My alarm is set for 9AM which is lovely.

I love the glow you get from Löwengrip’s new range Instant Glow. It’ll be launched in February. I’m crossing my fingers for it being the best product we’ve produced. Fantastic shine!

Lovely room at Pigalle!

 

…Well, it’s a suite. Lovely!

Goodnight everyone. Hugs!

Gothenburg

Simon and I are headed to Gotheburg. I’m giving a lecture tonight for a law firm and the I’m going to be at Kicks Kick Off. We’re selling Löwengrip there. We’ll stay overnight in Gothenburg at one of my favourite hoels and then we’re travelling to Tylösand tomorrow. My next lectue is going to be in Halmstad over breakfast so we also booked in team hangout for Löwengrip Invest during Wednesda there. We’re going to SPA and have dinner together. It’s really important to regurlarly find things to do with your colleagues. Other than SPA:ing at Tylösand, I have my Halloween party on Saturday (all employees are of course invited to the castle), then Christmas buffet in December and next year we’re flying to Dubai to kick start 2019.


Sascha took two quick photos of me before we left the office. Such a beautiful ligh. With a bit of make-up I suddenl look well again. I’m so in love with the watch Hampus gave me for my birthday. The blouse is from FWSS and trousers Zara.

Half the semester has passed by. I knew it was going to be a quick pace and many challenges after the summer but everything has gone well. I am looking forward to working all week, celebrate Halloween and then check out for a trip to Dubai with the kids for a week. The plan is to recharge the batteries so I can keep my energy levels high and carry on until Christmas and the end of the ear. I can do this!

The recipe for having managing: Be keen on not spending energy on unnecessary things. Regular exercise, spend time outdoors as much as you ca. Skip alcohol, you’ll sleep better. I eat healthy food, more carbs (energy), and have more snacks. I always gain a bit of weight (2-3 kilos) during the semester where we have the most to do but that’s because I eat more to have more energy. Having a bit more energy to spare mans I ca manage a bit more every day. Besides, I’ve goten stronger since I started weight lifting whic is fun. When I have calmer moments the need for snacking isn’t as high (not the same kind of hunger) so my weight goes back to normal. The body manages all of that itself so I listen to it. So awesome.

A bit of advice for women who are stuck in the food/weight swamp: It’s impossible to become successful in you career if you’re always hunry o always thinking about food. 1. You will never have as much energy long-term. 2. You waste all your brain power. Eat so you’re full on sensible food and always be on the move. It’s the only sustainable way.
