Getting your hygge on with Amazon

Today in Toronto it is a chilly, rainy day. I just want to snuggle up on the couch, light some candles, have some hot chocolate and enjoy the peace and quiet. In fact one of the things I love about the change of season to Fall is to light up candles. It’s relaxing and cosy.   But I also want to shop and below you can “window shop” with me as I a share with you some of my favourite ways to appreciate the small things in like which is what “hygge” {hoo-gah} means in Danish, originally Norwegian, meaning “well being”.   Did you know Denmark is one of the happiest countries in the world?  Nothing says comfort like a soft blanket and good book or having friends over for wine and a charcuterie with fondue and embracing the cooler temperatures.


Skore Candles & Beeswax Candle

Cashmere Throw & Cashmere Shawl/Scarf

Cuisinart Fondue

Wine Glass

Hygge Book

Do you do anything to embrace the cooler temperatures? Change your decor? Light more candles like me? Cook warm, comforting meals?

    A cozy blanket, good book, and cup of coffee are the perfect way to spend the afternoons when the weather’s cool. I love this time of year! Got to add to my hygge stash with those cozy candles.

    I just like the time between two seasons. I also enjoy lighting candles and cooking some warm meals. The joy of drinking coffee in fall is just awesome.
