Norlii Box February 2021: Nordic Bathing Traditions

I received February’s Norlii Box in exchange for an honest review.

The weekend felt like one long squabble and more than once I took to the tub for refuge. 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). What got me there (apart from the squabbling) was the latestΒ Norlii Box. It’s a bi-monthly delivery of Scandinavian home and lifestyle goods that ships from Denmark to Canada and the US. February’s box celebrates Nordic bathing traditions with a selection of spa-bath items to do wonders for your wellness. Wonder what’s inside? Don’t worry, I’ve got you.

Holiday harmony by design: Norlii Box December 2020 (A Scandinavian home and lifestyle box)

I received December’s Norlii Box in exchange for an honest review.Β 

Happy Monday everybody! I hope you had a great weekend, whatever you got up to. I did some cleaning, made a pie, saw my bestie for a few minutes (six feet apart + 😷😷), watched The Christmas Chronicles 2 with my youngest and started on my Christmas cards — a good mix of productive, relaxing and Christmassy things. Not so much that I’m starting the week totally depleted, not so little that I’m kicking myself for not getting anything done. It’s a hard balance to achieve this time of year. Today’s subscription box is designed to help you find harmony by creating a holiday atmosphere of moderation, simplicity and beautiful design. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Norlii Box is a bi-monthly delivery of Scandinavian home and lifestyle goods. December’s box is inspired by the Swedish word ‘lagom’, which loosely translates to ‘not too much and not too little.’ And how Swede it is! 😁 I absolutely adore this box.
