MOST RECENT

Too much #kage this week, got behind on #dagenskage pictures, so here's a summary
#dagenswienerbrød #livingdanishly

Rather excited to reveal my latest Nordic Notes post, ‘A blogger’s guide to Copenhagen’, link in bio.
I’ve teamed up with some of my all time favourite bloggers to get their recommendations for this wonderful city.

Pop goes the weasel... Ending an amazing week in true @tortus style.

#akroyogaaarhus had a great #skillshare yesterday. With so many of us gone to festivals and trainings this summer, we decided turn yesterday’s jam into an “each one teach one.” We picked up this sweet lil counterbalance from @signecathrinen and lots more! A skill share is such a community building and super fun way to come back together after holiday. We def missed our akroyoga aarhus family. ❤️🙏🏼 #eachoneteachone #neverstopexploring #communitybuilding #trainmoveplay #sarahandmartinmoesgaard #livingdanishly #summerhygge

Another charity shop buy, I picked it up for quick peak when at work and was immediately hooked so it needed to come home with me! I've always adored the Danish way of life and related to the couple straight away. So with two days of workmen making most the flat a no go zone this has made me stuck in a corner almost bearable! #livingdanishly #helenrussell #charityshop #chippingnorton #book #bookstagram #denmark

The UN’s World Happiness Report — created to curtail our unhealthy obsession with GDP — is dominated every year by the Nordic countries. So the Freakonomics team headed to Denmark to learn the secrets of this happiness epidemic (and to see if the rest of the world should steal them). Feat @MeikWiking, Jeffrey Sachs (on the limitations of measuring GDP: "My God. Let’s get serious about the quality of our lives, and stop this nonsense of chasing such a poor indicator that is taking us actually farther away from our happiness") and me (talking some sense, then losing my mess temporarily and shouting "sperm!" at poor Stephen Dubner. Because: me). Listen if you dare to How to Be Happy (Ep. 345) on the Freakonomics website - or wherever you get your sweet podcasty delights #denmark #livingdanishly #theyearoflivingdanishly #happiness #freakonomics #hygge

{cinnamon swirl}: If you think the Danes are brutish vikings, think again - and in case you need any proof that they are actually soft and sweet, just drop into a bakery - there will be one close by, trust me - and purchase one of their amazing pastries. No people that can create such tasty sød {sweet} treats can possible be barbarian! The kanelsnegle is the queen of sweet pastries and will disarm anyone even in their hangriest state. Kanelsnegle can (and should!) be enjoyed any time of the day, really: The buttery goodness of the slightly flakey dough paired with the sticky delicious cinnamon filling makes this swirl the ideal sugary top up in the morning, after lunch or before dreaming sweet dreams in the evening. So next time you picture a scary viking, add some kanelsnegle crumbs in the viking’s beard and a sugar-rush glint to his eyes - as long as there is enough kage {cake} to share, Danes really are pretty easily appeased 😉. #kanelsnegle #lagekagehuset #danishpastry #pastry #bakery #danishmad #danskmad #foodie #livingdanishly #lovefood #copenhagen #watercolour #postcards

I'm sure many will be happy to know that my training went a lot better today and I'm back on high... But still in a Premier Inn. I'm looking forward to the warm glow of our hallway to get me on Friday afternoon though.

We're lucky to have a hall as many flats and apartments don't. The "dresser" as we call it is actually a bedside table (bit big I think) from @ikeauk, however it's discontinued. Thank God I got it as I love it and everyone comments on it when they come in. The rug is a special buy from @aldiuk.

Finally, the paint on the wall is inspired from a Scandinavian Interior Inspiration book my dear friend @nattynoodles87 got me for Christmas. She even lent me the Annie Sloane paint to do it.... With a potato!

This is where I'd rather be right now, candles lit with a hot chocolate. The "chaise longue" in my Premier Inn will have to do instead. Today has been really tough on training, nothing but a downward spiral. I'm disappointed for not picking myself back up.
But tomorrow is a new day and I need to leave the bad bits at the lamppost and drive on.
Tuesday... Just Monday's uglier, nastier brother. NEXT!

Pinch me. I am in love with this interior. It is one of the rooms in Finn Juhl’s home in Charlottelund, Denmark. It brings together natural light, materials and colour in a way that just makes me so happy. I have picked up a book for the first time in I don’t know ahead of my trip to Copenhagen. It is Helen Russell’s A Year of living Danishly. I read it yonks ago but dipping into it again now. I am reminded just how much importance the Danes put on design in their everyday lives and it is part of their national consciousness. Try doing a search on reasonably priced Airbnb in the UK and then in Denmark and you will see a marked difference in design standards offered right there. Finn’s home is simply presented for function yet looks so stylish and illustrates my idea of a hygge home. On another note, we have been watching you tube clips of Copenhagen travel with the boys to get excited and discovered @vagabrothers they brought the city to life and we are armed with some top tips as to where to go, eat and drink. Go see. .

Happy Sunday campers! Just had a nice weekend back home in Lytham St Anne's seeing family and friends. Now to have coffee with @nattynoodles87 at a new place in #Chorlton and catch up on everything, because a lot can happen in a week! She's just done a mindfulness walk at #ChorltonWaterPark. Never done it before? Give a try and check out her page @riseabovemcr. Life will seem better wherever you're at!

This is actually a shot from last Sunday, taking it slow with banana and berry pancakes. I think our new tablecloth from @jysk.uk looks great. I had to fold it over because it's huge! Uber bargain at £8.50. What are the rest of you filthy animals up to today?

Went a little wild with #library holds last week, then decided my 25 holds were ridiculous so I suspended half of them for another 3 weeks. Because, you know, 12 books and one DVD (Hocus Pocus!) is so much more reasonable. #nonfiction #fiction #readtolearn #livingdewey #bookworm #bibliophile #gardening #organic #sewing #plants #thriller #livingdanishly #gettingoff #bookstagram #bookish #bookhaul #libraryhaul #ilovemylibrary #longlivelibraries

Sweet Scandinavian baby with his mini down comforter. 🕯

Billund, Denmark. Home to LEGO. The LEGO House was amazing (and the shopping is done!)
#lego #legoland #legolandbillund #livingdanishly #familyadventures #arbonnefamily

A cute planter made in the likeness of my brother @ablckll (a comically serious guy who does a lot of running) and whom I miss like a severed limb...which this pot also seems to suffer from!
On a practical note, this has hollow legs that are working very well at draining away excess moisture and keeping this basil plant happy. I threw the legs like teapot spouts and joined them when the pot body was leather hard and then bored a hole through the base to connect. When sat in a saucer the water is able to drain away through the 3 legs.

Living Danishly = getting outdoors, getting active, prioritising time with family (putting smallest members in backpacks, optional). Skimming stones with grandpa lesson #1 (twins were quick learners) #livingdanishly #goneviking

The new neighbourhood. Østerbro. Cycle. Coffee. Breakfast. Sunshine. Scandi love. #livingdanishly 🇩🇰.

Only in Denmark, pre schoolers and sharp knives! 😬😜 Just look at Sofies face, menacing! 🙀 #livingdanishly #onlyindenmark #danishlife #stormhamish #sofieskye #twins #tvillinger #givskudzoo #greatdayout

Day 3 - slight delays but catching up painting away..#livingdanishly #DIY #workinglate
