Hello pumpkin!

Soooo, it's been HALLOWEEN. The scariest time of the year. I have been so busy trick or treating. To scare people I dressed up as a vampire with a black cloak and pointy teeth. Oh! It was so fun. 
Here I am. And it wasn't only me that loved my outfit. The grown-ups loved me to. 

Happily ever after halloween everybody!

No Photoshop here

OMG! OMG! Oh My God! Danny is on the  cover of "Parents" magazine! I talked to him this saturday when we met over a cup of hot chocolate. This is what he had to say about this very exciting news: 

Yeah, it was no ordinary day. We had to go up at four in the morning to get to make-up in time. Took about an hour or so to get ready and then it was time for hair. Lots of styling products. Greasy is an understatement of my hairdo that day but MAN did I look good in the pic! 
After hair it was a long time when nothing happened. We drank coffe and just hung around the set. All the photoshoot guys was checking the light and changed the place around. At three in the afternoon we finelly got ready to start shooting. They took around 100 frames before calling it a shut. And if I say (don't wanna brag or anything) I seriously look stunning in this photo. Of course it got on the cover. 

Thank's, Danny, for this summery of your day. So amazing to see him on the cover.  
And you do look good in pink. 

Well readers, have a happy monday! /Janne

New friend in town

Hello my lovely friends! 
Last week when I went out to the woods I thought I saw something behind a tree. I got my camera out but it disapeared quickly and I only managed to get a bit of it on film. 
I got very intrigued and went out to the woods again this weekend. I walked for hours but it payed off. Just before dark the thing appeared again and this time I got a better look. 
Do you know what?! It's a giraff! And it followed me home and we drank lemonade and talked all night. We just clicked. It was magic. She is so funny and have so many great storys to tell. We became best friends. I love to meet new animals! Don't you? 
Let me introduce Gudrun. The giraff. Best friend ever!

A walk in the woods

This week I switched the concrete jungle of Stockholm City to the real jungle. Well, we don't really have jungles in Sweden. But we do have very nice woods. Anyway, I went out to the woods. For some calmness and serene "own time" time. And look what I found!


Oh, happy me!

Turkey travel

I love to travel. This time I ended up in Istanbul, Turkey. This is where one of my best friends live. And we always do great adventures together. 

This time we went to a factory to do some work, spent lots and lots of time stuck in traffic and ate a lot of fantastic food. Yummy in my tummy!


We also visited Istanbuls museum of modern art. A great place to get inspiration and we starred at pictures and things all day long. 

Whenever I'm away I always miss my home sweet home. There is nothing like my own bed. But soon I will go away on new adventures. I can't live without them. 

Happy weekend!

Walking with 7


Today I'm walking with my sausage dogs. They are all over the place. And don't want to go where I want them to. But what to do - seven is my lucky number. 7 dogs it is. 

This dog is actually named Max. So I have 7 Maxes. 

Max has travelled the world and loves the sunset. 

What is your lucky number?

Travel time

I recently travelled to Holland:

First day was spent all day at Nemo Sience Center in Amsterdam. Totaly amazing place for kids that wants to learn about sience and technology. They even had a chemistry lab were you could do experiments together with the staff.

My friend spent one hour at the control station in the factory area.

YouTube Video

He could have stayed all day there I think. Unfortunatley I could not participate. I was to afraid ending up in one of the cages.

So if you´re ever in Amsterdam - this is the top 1 place to visit.

Second day we went to Utrecht to visit a very special building. Hard to understand that it was built in 1920. Sooo modern and before its time. Upstairs was one big room, but almost like magic you could create several rooms with movable walls.

It was built by the famous arcitect Rietveld. You were not aloud to take photos inside. But here you can see one of the most famous chair he made:


Over and out and see you soon!

I spy with my little eye...

...a huge (HUGE!) shipment of boxes. New marvelous Lipfish clothes has just arrived to the head office all the way from Turkey. I can't see the desks or chairs now just boxes everywhere. I will try and locate some of my friends because this must be the best day ever to play hide and seek. 
And when all the boxes are empty I will make a fort out of them. Do you have a good idea what to make out of a Box? Please let me know.

Hi you lovely blog readers!

I am hiding from the sun today. It is hot outside. I even heard thunder. Sweating away, so I took some time off from sunbathing and worked instead. I started counting the boxes in our stock room. But I lost count after five. Time for a banana I think. Mustn't work to hard...

Summer vacation

Hi there, all ya lovely froggers!

I have been on a holiday down south. Actually in Malmö. It's the third largest city in Sweden. And WOW! I had the time of my life.

The elevators in the hotel was made of glass (just like the one in "Charlie and the chocolate factory"). I spent a whole day just riding up (20th floor was the highest) and down looking at the view. 

After that day I explored the city. A LOT to se. And do. Here I am trying out a pair of shoes. They once belonged to the swedish actor Nils Poppe. 

Artist Åsa Maria Bengtsson has made replicas of famous swedish actors shoes and put these on one bridge in the central part of Malmö. They point in different directions that had a special reason to that specific actor. 

I also had time for some typical swedish outdoor exercise. During summer a lot of people gather in the park to do "jympa". 

Of course I met up with my friend Doris and we had a lovely pic nic. 

The sun was shining the whole week so I took two baths a day (exept the elevator riding day). 

In Malmö there is a huge beach. The water was lovely. The sun was hot. I got a bit tanned even though I had sunscreen on.

Now back in Stockholm for some more work. 

C U soon, friends!

Happy Midsummer Eve!

Today we celebrate Midsummer in Sweden. We decorate a pole with lots of flowers and then dance around it. The best dance ever is about a frog. Like me! 
I picked a lot of flowers... Tonight, before I fall asleep, I will put 7 flowers under my pillow and while picking those and all the way till I fall asleep I will be quiet. Otherwise it will not work... 
And the story has it - I will be dreaming of my one true love that night. 
We put some flowers on the Midsummer pole.
I actually have a fly on my nose in this pic. 
A lot of happy people dancing around the pole. Looking like frogs and other strange things...
Me and my dad trying to figure out how many strawberries we can eat before we get a stomach ache. I voted for 17 but (and don't tell my dad, please) I only managed 8. 

Well, all you friends of a frog, have a great Midsummer Eve! 
Over and out.

Spending some summer days in Barcelona. After a whole day at the beach me and my amigos needed a day of activity. Went looking for the best place to kick a ball and look what we found!? This amazing space called Camp Nou. Nothing can stop us now. Let's hit the ball!

Actually FC Barcelona usually plays here. Behind me is the clubs motto: "Més que un club" (meening: more than a club).

Doris new bed

While I was working hard at the office, Doris was hardly working. She suddenly came down with a fever and needed to get to bed. Fortunately we drink a lot of milk at the office so after a bit of creativity, scissors and fabrics, Doris got a brand new bed at the office. Brilliant! 

Do you have a friend in need of a bed? Take an empty milk carton (or yoghurt carton or similar), wash it and dry it. Cut it in half. You can ask a parent to help you cut, scissors are sharp tools so handle with care. If you have some fabrics lying around cut a big enough piece for matress and another for blanket. If you don't have fabric, paper towel is good enough. Or if you have clothes ready for the bin you can cut of a bit of fabric before you through the garment out of the door. Have you good ideas of what to make out of milk cartons? I would love to hear them. Please e-mail me or write a comment. 

Have a happy weekend!

Big photo shoot

This weekend we had a smashing big photo session. Lots of kids running around in colorful clothes. It's for the spring/summer catalogue and I'm gonna be in it a lot. So happy! The theme is still a secret so I wont tell... but let me just say: I'm getting a new car!

Our photographer, Pia, spent all day down on the floor while Lipfish-Jenny got all the details right.

After the Lipfish-shoot I tried to get in the picture when Bombadill had their pillows and cookies photographed. And look, I made it!

This is Majken on her way to a flea market near Falun, Dalarna in Sweden. Doesn't she look lovely in a head to toe froggy outfit?! My heart just melts.

We do love to get pictures from all around the world so put on your best Lipfish clothes and send us a pic if you want to. :)

I travel with style

Who on earth said Dinosaurs were extinct?

To create your own colorful Dino you need a spray paint in a color you like (you might need to spray on a primer first to get the color to stick better) and a toy - no, seriously, not a real! - dinosaur. They can easily be spotted at flea markets or you might even have one in your basement? Start digging and spraying.

The rainbow

It's a happy day here at the office. We have gotten a lot of fabric samples for checking colors etc. I do look smashing in the pink, I think. What is your favorite color?

Don't tell her where I am!

Skateboard and the sun

The sun is really out and about this spring wednesday. So today I am outside in the park watching my friend Herman learn new tricks on the skateboard. It looks really fun but don't forget to protect yourself if you try skateboarding! Helmet and other gear on! Have fun in the sun!
