Dress up your gadgets

DAy 118Stylish gadget accessories for men and women

I am a proud owner of the most gorgeous ‘smartphone cover’ on the market from The Case Factory, a company that my gorgeous Italian friend Angela Martarelli and her darling Swedish husband Mats formed a few years ago. Yes, I know that I committed in yesterday’s blog to not spend as much time on my tech gadgets and I have followed my commitment. But talking about gadgets does not go under my new rule…

I get hugely inspired by entrepreneurs and the guts and courage they show daring to go after their passions and dreams, which is why I would like to introduce Angela and The Case Factory to those of you who are into gadgets and who also appreciate quality and style.

What inspired Angela and her husband to form their own company in 2012 was her great grandfather, who himself started a business from scratch transforming leather into beautiful products in the early 20th century. Angela and Mats decided to follow in his footsteps and their company is selling gorgeous unique high quality leather cases all over the world from Japan to London and New York.

Angela and Mats have passionately invested themselves into creating an extraordinary leather accessories company where they design, create and sell handcrafted exclusive leather cases and covers for smart phones and tablets. Their cases are in; calf and nappa leather, printed animal cases, real reptile skins and even fur cases. These cases are beautiful, nice to hold, and also work as great protection; for example my phone has fallen on the floor many times and has never caught a scratch.

Angela and Mats won a Swedish award in 2014; The Best Accessory Price of the leading Swedish fashion magazine Damernas Värld – and I think that it is just the first of many more awards to come. I am so happy for them that their hard work has paid off and for their success..

Wherever I go with my phone, people comments on the beautiful case shown in the picture with the quote above. It is possible to view and order their products online at

I wish you the best of luck Angela and Mats in living your dream and with continuous success.

Give it all – and have a ball, or change your job this fall…

Day 109Live with passion!

How wonderful it is to meet with people that are passionate about what they do!

Every time I meet someone, or have the chance to be a client of someone that that loves what they do, they truly stand out and make such an impact on me.

Passionate people that I have encountered through the years – train conductors, taxi drivers, nurses, doctors, carpenters, teachers, artists, chefs, hairdressers, singers, coaches, consultants etc, have left a mark with their professionalism and presence. Those that are passionate in what they do never seem to get tired, or even impatient, as they exude a pleasure to create and or to serve to a degree that makes a noticeable difference.

Passionate people exude 100% devotion and engagement in what they do and their whole being radiates a luminous light that is very attractive as well.

I spent the whole day today with an inspiring team of architects, interior designers and project leaders that exuded this type of passionate devotion. What an experience it was!

I wish we all will find that which we can truly feel passionate about in our daily engagement, as it makes all the difference to our sense of joy, energy and professionalism.

If you do not feel passionate about what you do, it is time to change. All research indicate we only got one life, and even if it turns out that we have two lives, why take the chance to waste one of our precious lives…
