Dear Johanna N

I love your jewelry and knowing you're a young entrepreneur who try to make your accessories in a sustainable, fair trade fashion makes it all even better.

You and Waby deserve all the success you're about to have!

Dear Twitter

Did I think of you and/or over capacity as I bought this necklace? Or was I just dreaming of having a conversation starter when I run into children?

Dear Pantsuit lovers, part 2

No one tells you this, so I have to. Once you try the pantsuit on, there's no going back.
It's the only thing I reach for when I'm getting dressed!

You've been warned.

Dear hungry people in Stockholm

If you're hungry, don't order Varma Primörer at Bistro Süd. It will cost you 180 kr and leave you hungrier than even before starting eating. They were good those veggies. But damn, they were expensive.


MÅNS! So crazy in love right now!

Dear Filippa K

Dear Filippa K, I recently purchased my first pair of chinos ever, from your store. But they don't really look like other chinos. As Anders put it, they seem like they're undecided. Or perhaps indecisive, I can't decide.

They're a bit baggy towards the waist, like chinos are, but then the legs are rather tapered.

I told Lotta K, she agreed. "Yeah, they're indecisive pants. I can't understand if you're going out for a nice lunch or if you're going to the garage to paint something. Decidedely indecisive!"

They grant their wearers something valuable though. Freedom to move!

Watches I can't afford

Clothes I can't afford. Part infinitive number.

First it was the L'Wren Scott dress, now this little vintage Ossie Clark number. At that price though (£4 110.00), I wouldn't ever dare to wear it. Museums, buy it for all of us to drool over.

More hipstamatic

My life the way it probably looks to an outsider.

My life the way it feels to me.

Just had to get a pic of Joel in here too. All pics from yesterday, taken with iPhone +hipstamatic app.

Dear grandfathers

Thanks for sharing your love. Two grandfathers in one day, no wonder the kids fell asleep happily.

Dear Hipstamatic

Ok, so you've made this amazing app that gives new pics an instant tinge of nostalgia. The pictures look like they come straight from the 1970's. But one feature that I've never seen you market is even more amazing! You make dad look like he did in the 70's too! Amazing.

Ok, so which desk at the office is the geek's and which belongs to the foodie?

Three more, for Anna and myself

Dear Niki

Just posting this here so I can go back and look at you. This was yesterday. It's finally getting warm in Stockholm.

Dear Puky bikes

Dear Puky bikes, is it possible to buy spare parts for your bikes such as a single rubber handle bar? An elephant ate Joel's. I picked the bike from the mouth of the elephant. I didn't think twice about it, that bike was new!

Ps. Also, is there a more common way to lose a handle bar. Am afraid no one will believe the truth.

Dear Flexees,readers

Dear Flexees, I bought your weird yet interesting undergarment a few weeks ago, after the shop girl at NK had told me it was the best one on the market. However, I was bothered by the fact that the skirt part kept riding up, collecting at my waist and adding to a love handle effect I did not wish for. Is it my stride that's too much for your piece? Can a woman only wear it if she's tripping around in high heels, moving at small small paces each time?

There was no warning about this.
Readers, do you have a better suggestion? What's your favorite slip?
My friend Lotta K summed it up best:
"Did your slip ride up? Unforgivable! You should be able to put complete trust in your undergarments, that's what they're for!"

Dear Brits

Do you have a factory where you make identical leaders? Mid-age, brown haired white males? I thought this was just one guy in a mirror until I noted the two had different colors on their ties.

Dear Native English Speakers

When Swedes want to talk about secret stuff in the presence of children, we invariably turn to English. This serves two purposes: 1. It works so well. 2. It speeds up the children's interest in learning English.

What language do you switch to? Have you tried Mandarin?

Repeat after me:

(mandarin speakers, feel free to correct my grammar).

Dear Freud Museum

Dear Freud museum, I love your e-Shop.
Notes from the couch (GREY)
I might buy your Notes from the couch-notebook with the interesting description "Ruled notebook with psycho-cartoons by Sempé". PSYCHO CARTOONS!
Couch Notes (Red)
Also slightly crave this elegant thing, with quotes.

Dear L'Wren Scott't

I have mixed feelings about this dress. Am so in love with its fit and style, am so sad about the pricing.

Dear H&M

Dear H&M, seriously? This is not an attainable ideal.
You recently apologized for using too thin models. Is this your way of correcting your ways?
Am not impressed.

-not really your consumer any more.

Dear pantsuit lovers

It comes as no surprise that our guru Tina Fey has jumped on the jumpsuit train.

Dear readers

Dear readers, I've recently spent a lot of time reading about ants. So fascinating. They have 5 eyes, 3 on their forehead. I tried this look out for myself but forgot about the two larger ones ants also have.

Then read a great book on light.
Social life is much busier than work. Fun though.

Family life is also fun. But challenging! Living with creatures you need to wrestle down to clean their teeth and others who move so fast a camera shutter can barely catch them.

Dear empty bed

This weekend something big happened. It wasn't just the oil that kept spurting out into the ocean or even the defused car bomb in Times Square or something Gordon Brown said whe he thought the nation wasn't listening.

The big news for me this weekend was Niki moving into the bedroom she now shares with Joel and Vanja.
No more baby in the room. For the past 8,5 years, there has almost always been a baby in the bedroom.
In this picture, Niki just asked "how does it feel"?
Empty. Weird. But also, somehow good.
