Why I did not tell about my pregnancy ….

Now after giving birth it is alright for me showing pictures of me being pregnant… but during my pregnancy I couldn’t make myself tell it to everybody ….

Me, one month before giving birth to Silas

Well… a lot of people have asked me why I didn’t tell about my pregnancy. Literally I met people on the street randomly and I did not tell.

They couldn’t see it, I didn’t tell…

Or maybe they could see it but didn’t want to say anything…

You know that you never ask a girl if she’s pregnant because maybe she isn’t and then you would actually offend her πŸ™„

Well I think I didn’t tell because I was afraid that something went wrong and I had to tell that afterwords.

So I only let people know who was really near to me, because if something bad happened I was not supposed to tell that to everyone.

August 2017, 5 month pregnant

And why this fear of telling people something good?

I think it’s because I many times have tried to be wounded and lost the things that I’ve spend years on building.

Relationships, work, ideas … and then see it all fall apart.

So for some years I actually felt that I didn’t matter – that my energy didn’t matter – that life didn’t matter.

And actually I have had difficulties in recognizing myself – which made me hide even more.

I didn’t want people to know how I felt and I didn’t want to listen to their good advices or critiques about how I felt.

Not telling about my pregnancy also meant :

Not showing pictures on the social media, which actually was quite difficult because normally on the socials we share our daily lives so I could only show half of my life…

…conclusion I posted less than half of what I used to do.

I was so tired

Which meant that I spend less time looking at other people lives that I lost followers….

But being tired is part of being pregnant, and I promise you I was πŸ˜‚

And that is why I didn’t tell about my situation –

I was scared of the reaction of other people if something went wrong.

Fortunately nothing went wrong and I now have a healthy little baby.

September 2017, 3 month before birth


Next post will be about why I didn’t put up any pictures of little Silas on the social.

Until then…

My passion for nature made me a criminal

So …

Last year I felt like the luckiest person in the world when I started my creative project making jewellery out of conches. An idea I had since I was a little girl travelling round the different beautiful beaches in Sardinia.




I thought it was great to be able to make something beautiful out of nature material. I thought I could contribute with something unique, fashionable and responsible.

But then I suddenly realized that what I was doing was against the law. It is not permitted to take away stuff from the beaches. It is written in the legal paragraphs.

First I was really stoked about the fact that what I was doing with love from my heart, was illegal.

I could get a fine of 3000 euro if I brought the conches out of the country. But I had been doing that since I first time remember being fascinated by the beauty of the conches.

So actually I have been criminal for many years.

But leave that aside.

My biggest preoccupation is not that my idea failed.

No… my biggest preoccupation is that I can go into any accessory shop and buy plastic pearls. Plastic pearls that comes from the petrol industry,

Plastic pearls that never obtains a delicious patina after years (they rather get ugly by time)

Plastic pearls that are produced in millions and who not that unique.

And these plastic pearls either ends in the nature because my bracelet broke or they end up polluting our air because I throw them out. I don’t say that this go for every plastic pearl. Some are better quality than others.

But the fact that if I don’t want my conch jewellery anymore I can throw it back into nature and it will become sand or maybe another person would like to have it and use it. That is not the case with the plastic.

And if it is ok to exploit the nature and people to make petrol, silver and gold, why can I not myself make high quality unique jewellery out of material found on the beach?

I do get the point that if 1 million tourists every year take away sand and conches from one specific beach that is a problem.

But hey…. not everyone is interested in having natural souvenirs. And not everybody likes the conch or the sand as memorable accessories, and not everybody has access to them….

So …

of course I had to stop my dream project and I am still in preparation with my new idea. That does not consist of material taken from nature.

Thank you for reading and if you have a unique accessory you’d like to show me, please upload a photo in the comment field.

Kiss a Stranger

Kiss a Stranger from your heart

Feel the bliss and go away
Full of trust of leaving
A big kiss
On somebody
You’ll never miss
Because he is yours and you are his


The Night is YoungΒ 

The Night is Young 

Full of scars 

You look up and see the sky 

Full of stars 

You search for one so clear and bright 

That no matter how dark 

You’re Full of light 

This light makes you brave 

Gives you courage 

And makes you stay 

On your path 

Day and night 

You are sharp and so are the light ❀️

Being creative


See ideas come to reality

See ideas change

See things change

Make things change

Use what you have

With what you have got

Where you are

Not only with your pen

But with your mind

With your hands

With your things

By doing

By seeing

By recreating

For the better

And for love


This necklace charm once was two wedding rings, but never used after the wedding – now 39 years after the marriage the couple is still together – the rings are united to one – and will be used much more.

Thanks to PR manager Hanne Strandberg Dahl for letting me share the story and inspiring me to write the poem.



Life is nice

Life is nice Life is spice 

Who would like to live it twice? 

Life is funny life is corny 

You don’t even get a warning 

Life is nice life is spice it’s sad it’s sore 

Sometimes I get really bored 

Life is spice Life is nice 

I’m crying I’m dying 

I feel free when I am trying 

Life is cool when I am flying 




Letting go

Of all that stuff

Clears my path

my mind

my heart

Where to start

Where I am

Where I feel

Getting rid of stuff making me unreal




Giving me space by letting go

Realizing what it is that makes me real

Makes me smile

Feel Alive

And full of joy ❀️



Stuck in stuffΒ 

Last week I started something big… But then I went down big time …

I thought I was stuck in stuff –

I thought I had the wrong stuff

Too much stuff

Stuck in stuff

And maybe also thoughts ….

But then I got stuck in the thought

About being stuck

And then I was really stuck

Stuck in life

Stuck in thoughts

Stuck in stuff

So now I just need to get unstucked ❀️
