Tuesday Ten: Creating the Perfect Hygge Moment

Leave a comment

 

January is the perfect time for a cozy and content hygge day.  I love this article from the New Yorker and think it perfectly describes the Danish concept.

  1. The perfect slippers.  These L.L.Bean slippers are largely regarded as just about perfect in New England.
  2. Candles.  White Barn makes my favorite candles.
  3. Play your most relaxing playlist.  I love this classic jazz one from Helena!
  4. Apply a face mask.  This HydraClay Detox Mask epitomizes Hygge!
  5. Go for a walk.  Even when it’s cold, I always try to go walking outside.  I really believe there is no replacement for fresh air, even if it’s hurting your face.  I love these Sorel boots for when there’s some snow or slush on the ground!
  6. Read a book.  The perfect hygge moment in my eyes involves a physical book and zero blue light.  Currently on my list is Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Signature of All Things.  I love ‘Big Magic‘, but I have never read one of her novels, so I am really excited to jump into this one.
  7. Make a hot cup of tea.  There are so many different types of tea, but I really want to try this detox tea from David’s.
  8. Get cozy under a warm blanket.  These blankets from Target are so soft and delightful, I love that they come in large sizes so your whole body is covered.
  9. Make some chili for dinner.  What’s better than homemade chili on a cold winter night?  I have been dying to try this white chicken recipe!
  10. Bake something.  I am always pinning tasty treats over on my Pinterest page, and this chocolate cake is my most recent addition!

What do you need for a perfect hygge moment?  Let me know in the comment section!  Have a wonderful day!

xo, C
