Is Lagom vastly different from hygge? Well, no. They’re not in competition. They are, in actuality, exceedingly compatible. Fredagsmys is hygge, fika is hygge, spending time outside is hygge. Whether you choose the Swedish or the Danish name is more the question. In their love for jumping on bandwagons and breaking down self-created idols, papers this year have been quick to jump over hygge as … Continue reading A Word for the Weekend: Lagom.
Today I am not at my desk. I’ll be out all day seeking for #coursehygge if there is such a thing in York. I’m training to do proofreading, having figured out that it might be a useful skill for both day job as an Office Ninja and night job as a writer. So as you read this on Monday (morning, noon or afternoon teatime) please … Continue reading Half Term Hygge: A free Infographic
When I started up my A Weekend With… series I had a few blog heroes that I wanted desperately to feature. I wanted Lucy of Attic 24, knew I had to have Gillian of Tales From a Happy House and dreamed of having Jane from the Posy blog. Jane no longer writes her blog, due to reasons she’ll explain below, but it’s still there in … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Jane Goble of Posy
Somebody taught me how to do infographics. Ok, not really, but I got a few slide examples and I’m always on for a try of anything, so I gave it a go. I have been wanting to do a Year of Living Hyggely for a while. You know I try to live everyday with a bit of hygge in it, whether it’s Spring, Winter or … Continue reading A Year of Living Hyggely: free infographic
Thanks to the wonderful Lis, who shared these photos of Coffee Aroma coffee shop in Lincoln on The Hygge Nook. There’s a reason that group is my favourite group on the web. Not only do loads of people get together and seem happy (most of the time: well, we are real humans after all) but they share so many useful things. Already today we’ve had … Continue reading Bonus post for Friday!!
This week’s post comes from Gillian, of Tales From A Happy House. Gillian’s blog hit my feed several years ago, when her stories of family life in Leeds struck a chord. Her house was beautifully scandi in style, and she liked so many of the things I liked…. I think it’s always wonderful when you realise that there are so many people out there … Continue reading A Weekend With….. Gillian of Tales From A Happy House
This is a photograph of a modern family at play. Can you see? There are three children, all with something in front of them, heads down, occupied with their own worlds. Get me. I’m the one taking the photo, so my phone isn’t far from my hand, is it? And I think after this picture was taken, I posted to Facebook so I’m really not … Continue reading Hygge is not…. 24/7
Hygge has gone worldwide this year. The Great Dane Invasion started in the UK in September 2016, but really only just hit the USA and Canada in January 2017. That doesn’t mean that they didn’t have hygge before. There are enough Danish ex-pats and descendants in the North of America to mean that hygge has been there for quite a while now. Today’s blogger … Continue reading A Weekend With…. Kristie of North of 49
