Uniqlo

So Maddox and I are doing our first collaboration together. And luckily for us- it’s Uniqlo. I have been trying on ever single budget branded simple white body for this kid, because he literally wears them once and the. He grows out of them. However, all brands are crap. Not soft at all. Then I was at uniqlo this summer and I found their white baby bodies- perfection. So when I was asked to do a collaboration with Maddox. I was like hellz yez! Because I can really stand for their stuff.

and as for myself, I’m obsessed with their Cashmere sweaters that come in every fall and winter. Very affordable for what you get. And this time around, I got to try their cashmere scarf.

Luckily for you guys- the first 100 visitors this Friday and Saturday - each get a cashmere scarf. So if you are in Stockholm and also have plans to check out the stores, you might as well start with Uniqlo to get a free scarf worth 600kr. I know I would! :)

Too early

IMG_9178.jpeg

I’ve been an early bird my whole life. But everytime I have to start my day by going to the doctor or dentist, I literally can’t get out of bed. And I’m not even scared of either of them! But here I am off the dentist second time this week!!

two days ago I had to get a tooth fixed because I accidentally bit it off during my labour. And today I’m going to see how the rest of my mouth is doing. Haha

I want to apologise when I’m bad at updating. To be honest, there is quite a lot going on right now, personally, so I’m having a hard time gathering my thoughts for you guys. I will though. I’m even bad at Instagram at the moment. And I really wish I wasn’t, because I love sharing stuff, just as much as I love looking at other people’s stuff. So I’ll make sure to make some time this afternoon to share an update on what’s happening right now for me personally :)

Need your help

I’m looking for a big photograph to go on that wall between the kitchen and the door. Preferably black and white. Something edgy. If you know a shop in Stockholm or any good online shop- let me know! I want to be done with this apartment already!

INSOMNIA

So Maddox sleeps through the whole nights, I however, don’t. I don’t know what’s going on with me but I keep waking up anywhere between 1:30-4:00 and I can’t fall back to sleep. I’m wide awake. And today, I woke up at 1:30 and now the sun just started rising over Stockholm. I kind of like it in one way, because I get to be completely alone with Maddox. He’s sleeping on my chest. Or just curling up into a ball when we are spooning.

But I also get so tired during the day and since he is up all day, I can’t really sleep then. So I’m in bit of a dilemma at the moment. But hopefully it will go away soon. Luckily, I have someone to hang out with now during the nights🙈 tonight we started rewatching the all-time best show- Gossip Girl! (Which by the way is doing a come back with HBO if you haven’t heard that already.)

The Carodaur

I absolutely love Carodaur style. Doesn’t matter if she’s in a bathing suit or at fashion week, she always has such edge. Even when she’s “basic”, she always goes all in with her accessories. I love that about her style. She has that added touch to things. I Would definitely check her out if you already haven’t.

btw- should I start doing my top favourite weekly outfits from everyone I follow? Because I always get asked about who to follow for inspiration.

Boots

I’ve always wanted high boots. Life really really high ones, like these. And I kind of like this look. What do you think?

earrings needed

I’m obsessed with jewlery as you probably get by now. All kinds of accessories- watches, bags, sunglasses, rings, necklace, earrings, shoes- EVERYTHING.

I am looking for earring brands. I love Carodaur jewlery style. So let me know if you know any good brands😍 (that won’t break my bank) hehe

Haha I don’t know what I used to do before I could do this. It’s my new favourite activity. He is slowly becoming more and more of a person. He is awake a lot more, for long periods at a time. Yet, still sleeps through the nights. How lucky am I?

I found these beauties yesterday. I love them!!!! Chanel always make the best boots, jewellery and bags. Always! And these beauties are everything.

The rest of the afternoon we spent shopping new clothes for Maddox because he has grown 4 cm in 10 days!!!! 10 days!!!! He is a tall baby. Not so much on the width, as the length. But he’ll get there. I’ll just have to keep feeding him. Haha

If you know any good Baby brands with some attitude, not just light blue striped stuff with elephants all over it. Please let me know!❤️

Tadaaaa

So, it was Maddox first trip to the hairdresser. 3.5 hours of sitting still. I’m very impressed with my kiddo. I was so excited about this change! Since instagram pretty much said 100% that I should stay blonde, I just had to do it. So, I did! And I love the change. I will definitely go blonde again. Of course. But I definitely think I’ll have this hair for at least fall and winter. Or who knows- I might end up having it for a couple of years! You never know!

Tadaaaa!!!

HappenIng. Right.now

So, it’s happening right now! Maddox and I are going brunette. He’s been asleep the entire time, so it will be fun to see if he recognises me when he wakes up. Hahaha. I’m joking, of course he will. But it would be so funny if he freaked out and didn’t understand a thing.

See you on the other side!!!

These days

IMG_7960.jpeg

This is the first morning we’ve had together just the two of us. Like all the way until 12. Instead of running errands I decided to just be and soak up the time with him, because guess what- he was awake! And he was practicing how to smile for like an hour. Soooo maybe we’ll start seeing some smiles soon. Hehe

After that I met up with my new mama friend Adrienne and another girl named Charlotte who I follow on Instagram and who follows me. A few weeks back she out of the blew wrote to me on Instagram after only meeting me shortly in a meeting over 6 months ago, saying that she really “digs” me and wanted to grab a coffee. And you know what- I “dig” her. So much. She is so forward and upfront and different from a lot of people here in Stockholm. I love her aura. So, today, I got a new friend!

Then Emelie showed up in her car and took me, Maddox and Mikaela out to this beautiful place here in stockholm. Of course I don’t remember where it was or what it was called haha, but it was so pretty. We had dinner with us and we just soaked up the last summer nights. I feel so fortunately to have these girls in my life. We have been best friends for almost 10 years now. And they are very much the same people that I met back then. Haha. No but to be honest, they are my anchor. Always have been, always will be. And night like these seeing them take on maddox with so much love, makes my whole world complete. I’m the luckiest girl in the world.

1 month later

So this is 4 weeks after Maddox arrived, 4 weeks since I did my cesarean. A lot of changes have happened to my body. The pain is completely gone and the wound is really healing up. But I still need to wear the tape for like 6 months. Which I’m not loving. But anything to get a nice scar.

My body is slowly going back where is was. My belly has a little pout right where the wound is. But other than that, the swelling is completely down.

and the hormone “stripe” , I don’t know what it is called, but it’s the pigmented line that goes from the belly button down. Mine however even goes from the belly button up as well. Haha. But it’s slowly starting to fade. A little bit at least.

My hips are a lot wider though. So I can’t get any jeans on above the hip area. Even though all my other measurements are back to the same. I don’t know how long it takes, but from what I’ve heard everything from 6-12 months. So, so long my skinny jeans for a while. Haha.

i just wanted to show you this. Because it is far from anything perfect or sexy. But I am so impressed by how the body heals and just sort sorta everything out for you. Everyone is different of course. But I don’t want people who are pregnant to fuss so much about the weight they put on. I did. Especially in the beginning. If I would have known it went this quickly, I definitely wouldn’t have even give it a thought. So for my next kid, it definitely is the last thing I’ll think about.

I feel comfortable in my body now. I just really miss my core muscles. But they will come eventually. For a cesarean it takes up to 6 months Instead of 6-8 weeks. But I can’t wait to start training them :)

SORRY INSTAGRAM

So I know everyone on Instagram is voting for me to stay blonde. But I think I’ve made up my mind about my hair. Since I’m getting a new cut as well, I think it will look better being brunette rather than blonde. I feel like I’m in the need of a change. Don’t you? And if I don’t like it, I’ll just change back in a couple of months. And I think it’s better to go brunette now when I’m a bit tanned, rather when I’m back to pale me in the winter. You should always make changes you’re tanned. Always! Haha

well anyways! It’s happening on Thursday morning! oh la la
