Gone Viking – My chat with Helen Russell

13th April 2018

As one of my most looked-forward-to moments of 2018; I’m excited to say that the wait is finally over. Helen Russell’s debut novel ‘Gone Viking’ is out this week.

The celebrated and bestselling author of ‘The Year of Living Danishly’ (known in our house as the Scandi Bible) and ‘Leap Year’ (a total must read for any wannabe full-time blogger), very kindly took the time to chat with me recently.


‘Intelligent Nature’ – Autumn Winter 2019 from Lapuan Kankurit

4th August 2019


For me, great design is about way more than just good looks. I love learning about its history, its inspiration and how products are made.


Royal Copenhagen Christmas Tables

21st December 2018

Instead of spending those strange days between Christmas and New Year sat on the sofa or shopping in the sales, this year my family and I will be heading back to Copenhagen.

Even though regular visitors to this amazing city, we have still to experience it during the winter months; and what an exciting way to end the year too.


Holiday Essentials with Nordic Style

15th July 2018

In just over a months’ time I will be heading back to Copenhagen with my family for our annual holiday. Seven precious days living the Nordic dream.

This will be our fifth trip in five years to the Danish capital and yet again we will struggle to fit everything we want to see, do and experience into such a short space of time.


Looking forward to the year ahead

6th January 2018

Happy New Year! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for a 2018 filled with Nordic inspired adventures.

This year is a big one for me. In March I turn the big 4-0! I’ll be honest with you, I’m not feeling good about it right now. As I sit here, just a couple of days back into the old routine, what better way is there to get focussed and excited about the next twelve months, than by sharing some of the things, big and small, that I’m very much looking forward to?
