I read this today and it really made me smile. Hyggebukser are that pair of pants you’d never be caught dead wearing in public, but practically live in when you’re at home on the weekends binging on Netflix.
We have been treated to an amazing summer here in Edinburgh. I’ve lived here for 25 years and at the risk of sounding like my mum, I can’t remember a year like it. I have a tan, we used the garden for more than 7 minutes and I even wore a vest top. In public!! I know – crazy times!
This week however, we seem to have returned to a more normal Edinburgh climate. The schools are back this week and as if to commiserate with the little munchkins, the weather has turned from glorious sunshine to hair-wrecking drizzle and mist. Pah! The only thing that cheers me up is the thought of an incoming Autumn and all that holds for us. Here at Spektakulär Gifts and Spektakulär Home, we love nothing more than preparing ourselves for our favourite season (well, mine anyway) and if that means I get to wear my hyggebukser pants for the rest of the year then bring it on!
As you all know by now, Hygge is a Danish concept that cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. Think cups of steaming hot chocolate, slippers and candles but for me nothing welcomes Autumn like a thick blanket and luckily for us all, Charlotte has been shopping! While home over the summer she visited Spira of Sweden and placed an order for some gorgeous new ones from their Autumn/Winter 2018 range. 100% cotton, big and a good weight for snuggling under, they are perfect for the months ahead. In fact, they’d be perfect for today to be honest – if only to hide my Haar Hair under! They have just arrived at our Spektakulär Home shop so pop in and we can put all that pesky hot weather firmly behind us!
