My Danish friends introduced me to the concept of “hygge” (pronounced something along the lines of “hoo-guh”) seven years ago. I fell in love with the concept immediately after they explained it to me. Originating in Denmark, hygge has no perfect English translation. It is described as a feeling, or an experience. It is about cultivating an atmosphere of coziness. It is about having a safe haven from which to hide from the stresses of life. I can guess that you, my fellow Westerners, fully understand these life stresses. Our society is ravaged by busy-ness and consumed by work, activities, and tasks. If you’re anything like me, you need some hygge in your life. Read on to find some tips and tricks to fostering that cozy, hygge feeling.
New location, new neighbourhood, new faces & new memories – a year ago we opened Hunni’s Coquitlam and we haven’t looked back!
The forthcoming of the study season leaves a bittersweet taste for those of us who had little time to relish in late completion of heavy deadlines. Though, going back to school is almost a relief, in the bleak sense of routine comfort. One of the major advantages, however, is the year’s coziest fashion!After months of stacking up on overcoats and turtlenecks, it’s nearly time to put them to use.
Denim, its that one item that just about everyone has in their closet. It has changed and evolved in style throughout the years but remains a constant part of everyones day to day wardrobe. Whether you bought it ten years ago or ten minutes ago it’s probably still in style.
Street style photography has become commonplace practice, gaining momentum from being constantly viewed. People who are uncomfortable posing in front of many people see other people doing it so frequently it becomes less uncomfortable. This has aided in popularizing this style of photography for modern day bloggers and Instagram fanatics.
“I feel stressed because I have three hours until I should be in bed. What am I going to do with all that time?” These words escaped my lips just minutes after I electronically submitted the final assignment of my undergrad. A moment that should have been filled with joy and celebration became filled with uncertainty. I had three full hours of unscheduled time. What on earth was I going to do with it?
Although we relinquish the flirtations of the long-awaited sun, we’re confronted with the difficult transition of the early spring climate. Despite the heat from the clear skies and morning rays, the winter chills persist, making styling seem like a compromise. Early mornings and late nights reveal the revival of cold weather, yet that alcove of sunlight during the most active hours of the day give us hope for warmer days! This is why I have accumulated three favourite ways to prolong the value of winter pieces, as well as incorporate the flowy and flattering characteristics that define spring!
And just like that it’s Monday again! Here are our favourite tune picks for the week:
