My name is Elin, I’m 26 years old. I grew up in a small town in Sweden and I was living there for most of my life. I never really felt like home there, too loud, too opinionated, too much. But it’s easy to get comfortable. One day me and my best friend were sitting on our balcony at home in Sweden and all of a sudden I turned to her and asked: what the fuck are we doing here? And that’s the story of how we ended up in Barcelona.

We made a decision, rented out the apartment, got the dogs passports, booked a Spanish class and got on a plane. It was up’s and down’s, and it took time to feel like home and to really decide to stay for real. But after about one year we made the decision for real. I sold my apartment, we got a third dog and I got into my first ever serious relationship.

I turned 25 and got engaged, all at the same time. And now, about 3 years after making the decision to move countries and change our lives forever, I’m engaged, planning my wedding, building my business, and expecting my first child, a little baby girl, in July.

So when feeling lost and confused I decided to take that loud honesty and turn it into an honest and open mama blog. Telling you all about my thoughts, opinions, joys, worries, tips and advice on this pregnancy, on having a baby, and on life in general.

My mission is to empower women and help them see that they can get exactly what they want. My passion is self love, self care and personal development and for that I run a group that you can find here Self Love and Must Haves Club
