My Lagom book is now available in French!

My Lagom book launched in French today! I'm so excited! A huge merci to HarperCollins France who've had the book beautifully translated, created a pretty cover and also put together a special promo package which includes five cards containing some of my favourite Swedish proverbs, recipes (my children's Swedish Great Grandmother Olga's cinnamon buns are a must for a 'fika' break) and more from the book.  I can't wait to visit Paris (yay - I get to visit one of my favourite cities in the world!) next week for a book signing and fun DIY session at the book store in Galeries Lafayette at 4 pm on 9th November (perhaps I'll see you there?!). In the meantime, here's a sneak peek.

I hope all my lovely French speaking friends out there enjoy it and feel as inspired reading it as I did writing it. I'd love to hear from you if you pick up a copy!

If you're looking for an English version - the UK version is available here and US version here - you might also like to try your local book store / library.

Thank you so much for all your incredible support!

The US Version of my Lagom Book is Out!

I'm super excited to announce the USA version of my new book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life has hit the shelves today! The content is exactly the same as the UK version (i.e. full of fun and inspiring tips and tricks graciously passed onto me by my Swedish family and friends over the thirteen years I've lived here   - but with a different cover. I hope the book inspires you to bring a little lagom into your daily life - whether hopping on your bike to the shops, taking morning dips, enjoying a fika (a coffee break with homemade cinnamon buns from my children's great grandmother's recipe!), going mushroom picking, or creating a calm and clutter-free home (I'm going to try my hand at creating that capsule wardrobe this Autumn too!).

If it sounds like a book you might enjoy, you can pick up a copy here.

Thank you so much to everyone who has got their hands on a copy of my book so far - and for all your kind words and wonderful feedback - it means so much to me! I hope the book inspires you as much as it inspired me to write!

PS - Thank you for all your questions about availability -  The UK version is available in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India and other Commonwealth countries. Amazon is a good bet, or ask in your local book store - even if they don't have it in stock I'm sure they'd be more than happy to order you a copy.  The book will also be available in French, Portuguese, German, Czech and Russian soon (I'll keep you updated as there's a chance more languages might be added - so fun!).

It's hit the shelves!

Earlier this year I enjoyed many, many fikas with Swedish friends and family. It wasn't just because I was feeling particularly sociable (although it was lots of fun - and I do enjoy a cinnamon bun admittedly!) - I was on an important mission. I was busy researching the concept of lagom (a Swedish term loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much - just right') and how my Swedish friends feel incorporating it into various parts of their lives helps them to achieve greater balance and happiness. They were extremely generous - sharing a wealth of knowledge, tips, ideas and bite-sized actions -  which have been combined with my own experience of living in this wonderful country for over thirteen years to write my new book Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life. And today it hits the shelves in the UK! Yay! I'm super excited to share a sneak peek inside....

The illustrations are by talented Swede Petra Börner - her work is so lovely and I was so lucky to collaborate with her.

I hope you like the look of my book! If you'd like a copy it's available online here or you can pick up a copy at your local book shop or library (if it's not in stock I'm sure they'd be happy to order it in for you!).

Excitingly, a US and Canadian version of the book will launch on 3rd October - (watch this space!) or if your English isn't quite up to it -  it'll also be available in German, French, Portuguese and Czech (with a possibility of more to be added to the mix too!). Eeeeeeee!

If you've got any questions or would like to know more please just give me a shout in the comment section below and I'll do my best to answer!

A huge thanks to everyone who was involved in the making of this book - especially the fabulous team at HarperCollins!

Trevlig kväll!
