My two friends

I have two friends entering this huge TV production.
Ester Elenora and TinTino.


I enter my room at Grå Gåsen Inn with huge expectations. For this TV show I brought a lot of clothes. Now, when I’ve unpacked my bags, I find myself sitting there staring at my wardrobe. 30 hangers with beautiful clothes are looking back at me. If they could sing I wouldn’t been able to leave my room at all, since they are so fantastic, and extremely well put together by my stylist Mats Lysell.

Everyday clothes and Extra-blinging night wears.

My favorite shop in Gothenburg is called TinTino and is located on Korsgatan 3 in central Gothenburg.


For two years ago I was in a situation where TinTino became a life saver. I needed a whole wardrobe for my “Jenny from Ace of Base-show”. For all six people travelling with me the nice staff had all sizes and a masterpiece of combinations regarding the cool-beautiful-efficient-Shazzzam!Bam!-feeling that all stageclothes need to have. (They did it in 20 min!) And I have proof of that the the clothes still have the same colors after many washes, and pearls and sequin are as when I bought them.

Who needs more? If they say time is money then you practicly earn them buying stuff at TinTinos.

I love this Ester Elenora necklace so much I wear it as soon as I can. More about her creations later. As I was doing this TV show I thought I had everything figured out:
I was supposed to wear white at lunch to sing my song, but since all the artist wore white I rapidly changed mine to a TinTino-bought dress from Cream. (Fits like spray and feels lika e warm summerwave to wear.) If not we would easily have taken this Lunch to a Sankta Lucia Swedish 13:th of December event.

La vie en rose.
Thanks to my allies.


Nails for TV!

It is a couple of days before i leave to Gotland for a marathon recording of a TV-show called “Så Mycket Bättre” (So Much Better). It puts seven artists in a villa called Grå Gåsen (The Grey Goose) on Swedens biggest island Gotland and film live performances in which the artist interpret each others greatest hits. My fellow band members from Ace of Base (Jonas, Ulf and Linn) wished me good luck and the idea for me is to show what kind of music I love to do today. For ten days in a row I will have a constant focus on waking up, eating breakfast, driving cars, boats and doing various insanities as we please. I have one obstacle though. Only one. I am soon finding a solution to the problem: I’m in the car right now, in the hunt for beautiful nails and I got a tip from a dear friend to go to Nova Nails.

She has very beautiful nails and you always find a twist and touch on each nail. My friend says Helena at Nova Nails is a real artist and very pedantic in her work. I love that.

Before I go to “Så Mycket Bättre” I know I have to find something peaceful for my hands to do, while having a camera in my face all the time. Some of you have seen me playing with my hair in interviews. Someone might think I look nervous, but I’m not. I knew I had to make something extra to get some focus on something else, since I am born with highly functional fingers and hands when I listen. Long nice nails would be a complement to my hair spinning skills performed by my capable hands. Just have a look!

…and I know there’s an easier way to master this lively fingers:

I need to learn how to
– knit
– tat
– crochet
– diaper web

But that is for next year. Right now I am enjoying this:

I will come back to you later with more information about Nova nails.
And yes, you can learn how to pick up needles with acrylic nails. You just improvise…
The combination of these two is why learning the above mentioned handycraft will take at least a year.
