Hi and welcome to Northern Heart!
Northern Heart is a small business located in the countryside in Sweden, with the forest and open fields as closest neighbor. The only only sound accompanying the creative process and the beautiful surroundings is the wind dancing in the tree tops.
As a young girl I was always fascinated by nature and the hours spent sitting high up in a tree top or walking barefoot through the forest were many. As I grew up and became an adult I started listen to the outside world telling me how to behave and what to focus on. I studied for 4,5 years at the University, got a Bachelor in Marketing & Communication in 2010 and a few years later found myself sitting in an office extremely unhappy, filled with anxiety and stress wondering what had happened to my life. I didn’t understand my unhappiness, I was told that this was the road to happiness, so why was I so unhappy? I searched for the answer behind a higher salary and climbing further up the career ladder, but no luck. In 2011 I suffered a Stroke at a very young age, due to a malformed blood vessel in my brain, and I realized nothing made sense anymore.
To make a long story short; I quit my job, started a blog, an Instagram account and a YouTube channel and here I am. My Stroke really became a stroke of luck because it made me realize that nothing was worth being that miserable. Today I live my life with nature as my biggest inspiration and closest “friend”, we hang out a lot her and I, and I find that nature both energizes me and makes me calm, inspires me as well as comforts me and in contrast to the busy city life, nature never judges what I am wearing, what I look like or the way I feel.
My intense love for the Swedish and Northern nature and culture; the silent forest, the crisp air, the midnight sun and the Northern lights, inspired me to start creating and communicating all the beauty I see around me as well as sharing a part of my slow living kind of lifestyle. A bunch of moments later and Northern Heart was born.
