Celebrating warmth, wellbeing and all things cozy with the Hygge Day Box from Hygge in a Box πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received the Hygge Day Box in exchange for an honest review.

There’s a Danish proverb SΓΆde Ord fylde kun lidt i sakken (fine words butter no parsnips) and such was the case this morning. I had every intention of getting up an hour or so before the kids to enjoy a cup of tea with a blanket and the fireplace channel, maybe put a batch of cookies in the oven for the lunches and fill the house with the welcoming scent freshly baked goodness.

Which isn’t something I’m inclined to do; usually I try to make my escape tunnelling through a carton of frozen yogurt (‘tho I did some of that too).
