Get cosy with Finding Hygge

I have something very exciting to tell you about today! 2018 sees the release of Finding Hygge, a documentary dedicated to finding the real meaning of hygge. In this documentary, we will meet a host of real people embracing hygge in their own lives, and find out what it means to them. From The Little…

Hygge places: Barbados

This blog is all about ‘finding hygge everywhere’, and Barbados is about as far from Scandinavia as it’s possible to get (in terms of weather and lifestyle, if not distance). I recently got back from my first ever trip to the Caribbean and I. LOVED. IT. What a beautiful, beautiful island! In the spirit of…

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….

7 ideas to get more sunshine in autumn

At this time of year, it’s easy to cancel all your plans and stay wrapped up inside. I know I’m guilty of doing it – when the wind is whistling and your skin is turning an alarming shade of grey in the chilly climes, the temptation to draw the curtains and huddle under a blanket…

Hygge places: Bled, Slovenia

I recently took a little trip to Bled (and the surrounding area) in Slovenia. My friend and I considered several places for this trip – Cannes, Sorrento, Krakow… but my friend had taken a day trip to Bled once before, and I’d heard good things, so we went for it. Guys, if you love autumn…

31 ideas for October hygge

Guys, I couldn’t be happier that October is finally here. It’s my favourite month – I love the unpredictable weather, I love the darker evenings, I love the bright crisp mornings. I’m not big on my own birthday (though I love other people’s!), but my birthday is 31st October – finding out I’m a spooky…

Hygge places: Brighton

How have I never written a post about the most hyggeligt places in my hometown? I wrote a while ago about my old favourite pub in Brighton, Northern Lights, which has unfortunately since closed down. I’m still gutted – there’s another bar in its place, but the magic has gone. Just goes to show that hygge…

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…
