LEGS + GLUTES EXERCISES

I try to start my days as many days as possible with a quick 30 min ute workout at home. Now days, I am mainly focusing on the legs, glutes and arm exercises, as I am trying to do absolutely no core exercises this far into my pregnancy. I found this account last week, and I absolutely love her stuff. As soon as I started saving workouts on instagram, the algorithm picked up on it and suggested so many great trainers. So I will keep sharing the exercises as I try them out! There are not just for pregnant women, this is for everybody! I have not slowed down there at all. Which I think is so important if you have the ability still. So here they are- try them tonight! No equiptement needed. (even though I recommend you getting some ankle weights, because they are the best!!)

HERMINE HOLD X FORNI

E5A7441E-E613-4C3E-A1DB-08AB184C70E3.jpeg

This morning I got to start my day with an inspiring breakfast together with Hermine Hold and Forni. Hermine Hold, is as many of you know, a company that Nordic Tech House founded together with the founders of Ideal Of Sweden. Today our CEO, Katarina Roger, and Forni’s founder Michaela Forni had a brakfast to talk about brands and personal branding. There were only women there, interestingly enough. Even though it was open to everyone, I guess the cliental was mainly women focused when a female blogger and hair accessories brand have an event together. But anyhow, it was a great way to meet up with some friends, have some breakfast and listen to some powerful ladies. Katarina Roger, is someone whom I have gotten to know the past couple of months. She reminds me alot about myself in many ways. And someone I think I will have around for many years to come. Not just work wise, but hopefully personally as well. I admire her personality alot, and someone who I think spreads energy and inspiration to everyone she meets. So if they have more events, which I know they will, I highly recommend you going.

The best tip from today:

Always say yes! Just go with it. This is my motto. You will never know unless you try. And trying is the most important thing when you are at the beginning of you career I think. I have always just dived into things.Jumped on to all kinds of trains and I have learned soooo much along the way. and it’s a 100% the reason why my career has flown 10 years past my age. And no, I do not judge people for making career changed after just a year or two into working. Why waste time on something that you will never be successful in? You will only be successful in something if you truly love something. You HAVE to love your job. 100%!!! Otherwise, how are you supposed to work those extra 100 hours? The extra 100 hours that you need to put in to become the best. That you need to put in, in order to create magic?

So say YES today and to everything that you are pursued. But of course, always always follow your guy feeling. It needs to make sense as well.

THE PICTURE SUMS IT ALL up

This weekend, literally everyone fled Stockholm. Except for me and Oscar. And you know what, it was amazing!!! It was completely desserted. The sun was 20 degrees all weekend, we walked the streets without bumping into people. We managed to get tables at all our favourite restaurants. We had Haga park pretty much all to ourselves. We had picknicks. We walked 20 000 steps every day. Took amazing work out classes. Slept in ( hehe and by that I mean 7:30-8..) It was amazing. We got everything we needed to be done for our move that is coming up in just a couple of days!!!! SOOOOOO SOOON!
It was the perfect recovery. And it was the perfect weekend to welcome spring / summer to Stockholm. So this sums up my weekend pretty much in a photo- alot sunshine, far too many ice creams and a very very happy Stina. And yes, I’m wearing color….. Oopzzzz

ZARA FAVORITES RIGHT NOW

When I can’t sleep I pretty much go through every online store that exists. Haha. And I am not much of a fan of Zara, because I think that their quality has gotten really crap. So I haven’t been online lately, but checking them out last night I found a few goodies that could be worn for an occasion or two. and for that the quality is perfect! So here they are!

I really wish i won the lottery today

Yes I’m a bag lady, if you haven’t already noticed. There probably isn’t anything I get as much as a kick out of as buying bags. Bags are everything. They make you’re whole outfit. Or at least I think so. And here are my 4 dream bags right now. But first I need to rob a bank or win the lottery, because getting one would be far too hard to decide…. so I need them all… haha…. I just need the 💸💸💸💸 first. Just a minor detail…

This baby was released today in Louis Vuitton stores. So if I were you, with money that is, I would make a run for this amazing bumbag that they have made. It’s soooooo nice and the leather is of course just as amazing as all their other bags. Yea, I wouldn’t even think about this one… it’s just a must in your wardrobe.

I saw this Valentino on a girl the other day. It made me turn around on the street. So edgy, yet classy. I LOVE IT. But as far as my google search goes, it’s sold out everywhere.

The new colour scheme at Chanel is to die for. I love black bags, but I’m considering going colourful for this mama.

The amazing and very trendy Dior bag that you all have probably already seen on every influencer in the world. Who cares- it’s flawless! And worst part about it, it’s even nicer in real life.

BARRE + SOME EXERCISE VIDEOS

13964074-7395-46A3-BCF6-5B009821553E.jpeg

During this pregnancy I have really found my new training calling - Barre! I LOVE BARRE. I’m obsessed. But you need to go to a good Barre studio. I tried Sthlm Barre and it was okay… but nothing like BeCore. I am obsessed with Becore. Even though it cost quite a lot of money, I think its the best investment that I am making each month. Because I have been able to maintain so much strength and shape through my pregnancy. If you are tinking about going, I would suggest you try Cecilia or Sara.
Cecilia, is a bit more upbeat and extremely tiring. Sara knows alot of technique and she corrects everyone alot so you can really feel how your body is working.

I train almost every morning at home. And here I also do Barre workouts. I haven’t found equivalent videos yet to the exercises that you do in the classes. But I thought I would post some videos here below that I do in the mornings.

Legs and butt


STOLEN

IMG_2162.jpeg

I may look very “soothed” here. But I’m not. Far from reality. Actually I’m not really panicking. But what happened still sucks. My designer bag with my computer, my favorite Chanel jewellery, and my lion gucci rings, my grandma’s ring was stolen at Espresso House at Stureplan was snatched. I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS! Especially when you actually were being careful. BUT!!! It’s only material things. Even though loosing my grandma’s ring was the worst part of it. It has sentimental value which any money in the world could never replace.

The worst part was that I had my house keys and my ID in the bag- so the police was like - GO HOME!!!!! CHANGE YOUR LOCKS NOW!!!! hahaha. So Oscar and I both ran home and changed the lock immediately. Literally like an hour later it was done. How fast is that?!

Since I am quite good in crisis and I don’t cry so much over spilled milk. The most important thing is that no one can break into my home and steal the rest of my things. Now it’s just alot of paperwork left. hahaha it’s a good thing, I hardly have anything else to do…….?????? hahahaha

SOME MORE APARTMENT INSPO

It’s getting soooo close now. 3 weeks left until the renovation begins! And just 4,5 weeks until we move in. I found this instagram (yea, I’m probably 100 years too late….) But it has prettty much my entire moodboard on it and I get very inspired by the colors and stucco on the walls. So, its perfect. Here are some thoughts I have for the apartment.

Screen Shot 2019-04-10 at 07.37.03.png

I love this color and I am thinking it should be the color for my bedroom. I like that it is dark and calming. But not as dark as we have it today. I have found these beautiful curtains, and I am actually planning the room around that color hahaha.

Screen Shot 2019-04-10 at 07.36.52.png

But on the other hand. I am obsessed with this color as well. Oscar thinks its a bit too blaaaah. But I think it has thing very soothing cashmere feel to it. I think I will probably end up choosing a color that is something towards this, but maybe one or two steps darker than this one and two steps lighter than the one above. Or what do you think?

Screen Shot 2019-04-10 at 07.37.13.png

As for the hall this is exactly what I want. The color is perfection. And the stucco on the walls are exactly what I want. I might build a sitting bench as they have here on the left. Just because it gives the place a very homey feel to it.

MY THOUGHTS ON L300'S Hyaluronic Renewal-serie

So I have gotten to try L300’s new Hyaluronic Renewal-serie! You probably don’t know this but I’m a huge fan of skincare. The past couple of years, I haven’t spent a day without moisturising my skin, both day and night. Growing up I can remember that I used to wear makeup to bed and sleep with it. That would NEVER happen today! hehe

So when a skincare brand contacts me to do a collaboration, I am not the one to say no. Mostly to just try the products!

So- here are some insights!

Jag har fått prova L300s nya Hyaluronic Renewal-serie! 💫Som ni kanske vet sedan innan är jag ett stort fan av hudvård och framförallt oljor, därför blev deras nya Hyaluronic Renewal Face Oil snabbt en ny favorit i min hudvårdsrutin. Jag älskar att se resultat och känner sån otrolig skillnad på huden efter en natt med rätt produkter eller produkter som ger en bra bas innan smink!

The consistency is quite good and it sinks into your skin pretty quickly. I LOVE THAT! I felt silky smooth all day. That’s why I love oils and serums. I like night creams, but not day creams. Serums and oils just quickly soaks into my skin which is perfect before appyling my foundation. So I definitely will add this into my every day routine. If you are interested in testing it as well, go to my instagram post today and follow the instructions, so that I can send it out to you! :D

STAY THE F**K AWAY

IMG_2571.jpeg

My mood right now. I feel so zen within myself, but I feel that the winds around me makes me react so strongly and completely takes over my body right now. I have really managed to find my bubble with Oscar, the kids and my friends. But i’m at a very fragile state in my pregnancy. I feel like if I don’t get enough sleep, I’m not only tired, I’m wiped out and extremely emotional. Not so much outwards, and people in my surrounding probably wouldn’t even think so much of it. But, the tiniest thing gets to me right now. And at the moment, rude people really fucks up my day. And it pisses me off that they are getting to me. I’m usually so good at brushing people off. Because people that purposely go out of their way to upset you, are just sad lowlife people. And there is nothing worse than people that rubs of their “miscontent” about their life on other people. So you know what people, be nice. You have no idea how much being a jerk can fuck up another persons day. Especially pregnant women. Haha especially me right now! Haha

tiger’s out!

I'M NOT CRAZY

IMG_2422.jpeg

I’M BACK!!!! After a rehabilitating day and some good nights sleep, I’m back at work. I realised yesterday that having a day of in the middle of the week is so refreshing. haha. Probably not for my employer, but it does wonders for my creative brain.
Anyways, today I am having lunch with a girl who reached out to me for some career guidance. She has followed me for a while now and I felt so honoured when she reached out to me. I am not trying to brag now, but it does actually happens to me quite often. And I love helping people that I trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. Everyone has their own path, but we all end up soul searching at one stage in our life. This is something I have been doing alot. Also why I think I have taken alot of side steps and huge steps forward in my career. People would say I get restless. Which is partially true. When I go into a role, I do it 110% and I think with my drive and passion, that is more than most people’s 110%. and I think that has made me take major leaps in my career. So yes, people have laughed and told me to cut down when I have been working 80-100h work weeks for years on straight. But it has also given me the possibly to speed through my career. If you divide that into a normal 40 hour work week, 1-2 years at a place for someone working 40 hours a week, is 2-4 years for me. So yes, it’s been some crazy 5 years of working for me. But it has prepared me for the roles I have taken at H&M and here at Nordic Tech House. Because today I have to say my qualification goes beyond 10 years. Which I am extremely proud of. For some people, that isn’t important at all, but for me, it has really helped me to define me as a person; what drives me, what inspires me as a person, what is a process for me, how do I create my own process and how do I always apply creativity into everything I do.

So, I know there will be a lot of you thinking that I am completely insane for only taking 3 months maternity leave. And for you, that may seem crazy. For me, it would seem crazy to do a whole year. Being away from my work full time for a whole year, a year without being inspired from other people, being intellectually challenged every day, creating things that changes and shapes the world. Well for me, it’s a huge part of my life and something that makes me, me. Of course, I wont go back full time when Maddox is only 3 months. But probably 50%, which is someone’s full time. It’s all about being effective. I know Maddox will want a mom that is happy and loving every bit of her life and being able to bring that energy to him everyday. Just like my mom did when I grew up. And she went back to work after only 10 and 11 days with me and my sisters. So, everyone is different. And it doesn’t mean that I love Maddox any less than. I just want to be the best possible mom and Stina there is for him. And for me, maintaining my life and daily inspiration, will only make me a stronger and more powerful mom. I am proud of that. And I hope he will be too.

So just remember before you judge. Everyone is different. And everyone has their own path. This just happens to be mine.

And Maddox- I’m doing this for us :)

My body is done

9BA2DCA5-9E90-4E70-B50D-1C9E3F77888B.jpeg

Today I’m stuck here. I got some sleep, but when I woke up my whole body was aching and I was feeling disoriented, so I decided to stay home and unwind. I think I’ve been going with my normal speed this entire pregnancy, and now my body is saying no. It makes sense, I’m 7.5 months pregnant and I am working as much, seeing people for dinners 3-4 times a week, we have two kids, we are moving and renovating, and I am trying to workout everyday some how, at least 5 times a week. So I think my body and mind just needs some space. Maybe only do dinner 1-2 a week? Maybe just do 2 big workouts and 3 smaller ones? I don’t know. I am trying not to see it as a defeat. But it’s hard when you are such an energetic person, with a lot of stuff happening all the time. I am one of those people that always has back to backs, not just work wise but also privately. And I think when you are carrying around an extra 7-8kg and an extra life, you can’t rush any more. It’s weird… it sort of just hits you. I’m a mom. A mom?! And it’s not just me anymore.

So today I had to be wise, and stay put. If you have any recommendations on shows or birthing videos (something other than margaux’s video) please send it my way.
