Fashion blogs, do you read them? Well, as this is sort of a fashion blog, and you are reading this, I guess you do. But do you find yourself less so? Well, if you have a few minutes spare and would like to rediscover the world of blogs, I have a few , both fashion and lifestyle, I’d like to recommend.
Remember SKANDINAVISK? We’ve talked about it previously. It’s our favourite brand for candles, as it’s scent-free (if you do prefer scented candles, that’s also part of the product range!), incredibly slow burning and therefor so looong lasting. And that glow! Forget any childhood memory of the “snølykt” (snow candle) you made… This glows beyond anything!
SKANDINAVISK Hygge Advent Calendar Candle is made of vegetable stearin, refined paraffin and organic beeswax. Pure, slow burning and highly decorative with a deep glow. A daily treat, throughout Advent.
And did you know, you can get some HYGGE in the UK too now? Moleta Munro, Republic of Fritz Hansen, Wild Swans, Totally Swedish and many more stock this home accessory brand. Find your nearest retailer at skandinavisk.com And don’ be fooled by the price. Considering the hours with deep glow -it’s rather affordable.
This post will be updated with a burning Advent Calendar Candle, on Sunday! ;)
Psst! Will I be seeing you at the Scandinavian Christmas Market in Notting Hill today?
If there’s one thing I miss from Scandinavia it’s candlelight. Scandinavian proper candlelight. That have the right size, that smell absolutely nothing, that burns slowly without dripping and that glows magical in the dark.
Autumn is the season for candlelit evenings. Weather’s changing, leafs are falling from the trees and landing on the wet ground, the evenings are darker. That’s in fact a season the Scandinavian people are looking forward to. As it’s the season for “hygge”. Directly translated it means to enjoy yourself, to be having an enjoyable time. To the Scandinavian people “hygge” means to lid candles, brew a cup of tea, get out your favourite book and cuddle up in the sofa with a woolen blanket and just enjoy the dark and silence. If you want to experience that authentic Scandinavian feeling of “hygge” you need to try the candles from SKANDINAVISK.
New this season is the natural fragranced candles; SKOV, with a fresh smell of the Scandinavian never-ending forrest, HAV, which takes you straight back to a swim in clear blue salty sea and then last it’s HYGGE, that just smell incredible nice in a subtle way. All three fragrances are perfect when you just want to add that extra bit of atmosphere to your home. HYGGE is my favourite, but I wouldn’t mind having HAV in my bathroom. But I wonder if my husband would prefer SKOV.
And then there’s the new Advent Calendar Candle. As a opposite to the more traditional advent candle only to be lid on the last for Sundays before Christmas Eve, this you can lid every evening, as a countdown, for all of us that still believes in magic.

Two English chaps, who fell in love with two blonde Scandinavian girls… This is the intro to the Copenhagen based company, SKANDINAVISK. They’ve captured the essence of the Scandinavian word KOSE. It’s about creating those small moments. Create space, and time for each other. To enjoy some quality time, in between everyday chores and stress.
Now Skandinavisk has designed a scent free candle that’ll burn for at least 140 hours. That’s a lot of KOSE!

As a Scandinavian living in the UK I’m finding it hard to find good quality candles. In Scandinavia, any grocery shop will have a great selection of everything from tea candles to church candles.
Luckily -I’ve now discovered the online shop, with FREE shipping at the moment, skandinavisk.com
