The best autumnal homeware for hygge

Is it just me or is September absolutely flying past? Now we have some nice chilly mornings and darker evenings, my mind is turning to nesting. I LOVE buying homeware more than anything else, and even though you don’t need to buy anything to hygge, that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up a couple of…

Cosy autumn bakes and makes

WE MADE IT! September is finally here, signalling the start of the best third of the year, and my annual lobotomy is well underway. I feel giddy with anticipation about conker hunting, my first hot chai latte of the year and slipping back into a jacket, and while you can of course hygge anywhere, anytime…

A very hyggeligt summer

Oh it’s been a weird summer hasn’t it? I don’t think any of us quite expected to spend almost half the year in some sort of lockdown. To be honest, I’ve had a lovely old time pottering around at home, going for lockdown walks and staying out of the sun, but I know it hasn’t…

Hygge in the time of self-isolation

Buckle up, friends – we’re in for a strange few months.  Coronavirus (COVID-19) has torn through the world, and health risks aside, perhaps one of the biggest challenges will be the (temporary) move towards self-isolation. Virtually all of the worst-affected countries are telling their people to stay indoors and minimise contact with other people to…

Can I hinch myself happy?

I’m late to the party. The hinching party, that is. I’ve been vaguely aware of Sophie Hinchliffe, aka Mrs Hinch, for a fair while now, but until a few weeks ago I’d never taken much of an interest in the biggest cleaning sensation since British national treasures Kim and Aggie.

Something good is brewing: Bake & Brew Box review

Anyone who knows me knows that I communicate using the little-known sixth, and most hyggeligt, love language: baking. I LOVE baking for so many reasons – it’s therapeutic, it’s productive, it’s creative and it’s just plain fun. But what I don’t love so much is measuring out all the ingredients. If you’ve ever messed up…

How to have the cosiest Bonfire Night

Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot. We see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot. I’m not really a Halloween person – horror films bore me, I don’t own any costumes (apart from my Trixie Mattel look from Pride) and as a kid, I always resented giving trick or treaters…

3 ways to bring nature into your home for autumn

Could it BE any more grey?! As I write from inside my blanket burrito, I’m looking around me and seeing a lot of fabric. Wool, cotton, velvet, fleece, pretty much everything. For those of us who just can’t get enough of the hygge way of life, I imagine your home looks pretty similar right now….

Bright, golden September

Now we’re sidling our way through September, I’m doing silly things like getting up at 7.15am on a Saturday just so I can experience as much of autumn as possible. ‘Experiencing autumn’ at that time of day generally just means relocating from my bed to the sofa to grin gormlessly out of the window as…

Hygge decorating on a budget

We’re finally in the best part of the year! It’s (basically) here! The next four months – they’re all the best. Having a third of the year as your favourite part is pretty good going, right? As we glide seamlessly into autumn, lots of us will probably be thinking about putting the summer home accessories…

5 tips for autumnal home decoration

This year we’ve seen some amazing interiors trends, from my absolute favourite colour, blush pink (I promise I liked it before it became known as ‘millennial pink’!) to copper, and tropical prints for days (I’m looking at you, pineapples, palm leaves and flamingos!). But now we’re sneaking into autumn, the trends are changing, and I…

Creating a Pinterest-worthy hygge home

Confession time: I LOVE PINTEREST. I can easily waste hours on a Sunday evening scrolling through recipes, inspiring my home decor and fuelling my wanderlust, and there’s something so satisfying about adding to my boards (shameless plug: if you enjoy this blog, you might also like my Hello Hygge board). One of the questions I’m…
