Gettin' Hygge With It

I first heard of hygge a couple of years ago, and since then, I've been hooked. I love the mindset and the practice of finding comforting ways of getting through the winter. Most activities are simple, like making a good meal and sharing it with friends and the intent is to give you something to look forward to so you're not focusing on the cold and the darkness. Hygge is different for each person, so today I thought I'd share how I get hygge with it. 

{Actually, it's pronounced more like hue-gah, but it's close enough for me. Na na na na na na na nana...}
1. I put plants everywhere inside, since outside is so brown and blah. It makes me happy since to see the green.

2. I like to find new winter dishes to try. I'll be making this Veggie Chili from Running on Veggies this weekend.

3. As a family, we make the most of our Amazon Prime/Netflix/HBO Go accounts and explore new shows to watch and to look forward to. The kid's are loving Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events and Gortimer Gibbons (a plus, both are tolerable for parents!). I've loved Cafe Society, Lars and the Real Girl, and Schitt's Creek, just to name a few. I'm needing a new series to start, let me know what your fave is!

4. I find comfort in having the space around me tidy and cozy. Kids, clean UP your stuff! Fires in the fireplace, comfy throws, and my favorite candles.  

5. The harsh temps and dry winter air wreaks havoc on my skin, so finding products that keep my skin happy is a must. Soothe 2 and 3 work miracles for the dryness and redness on my face, and I'm always within arms reach of cuticle cream and a good hand cream. This Tarte highlighter palette is great for adding just a touch of brightness, since who knows how long it'll be until we see the sun again. 😉

 Here's hoping for an early spring!
