Moving to London, hygge and other things I love this week.

As you have probably guessed from the title, I have moved to London! We decided to pack up and leave our little flat in Reading in search of a central one in the big smoke, which so far has been great! We took the week off work to explore - which has inspired my first love(s) of the week:

1. Scandi Kitchen 

The Scandi Kitchen is a cute little Scandinavian restaurant and shop just off of Oxford Street that serves (you guessed it) scandi food - Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian and Danish. A great place to pop into if you are looking for a delicious open sandwich or some Julmust. 

2. Brick Lane  

Brick Lane has to be one of my favourite parts of London - mostly because of the amazing graffiti that is ever changing - but also because of the amazing variety of street food, vintage clothes and coffee you can get at the markets.

3. The Little Book of Hygge  

I actually picked this up a month ago at the supermarket but have only just started reading it. I am fascinated by the concept of hygge, especially now it's starting to get colder, and this book gives a great little introduction to it. If you don't know what hygge is, to put it simply, it is a Danish concept that represents the feeling of cosiness, well being and happiness - what's not to like? 

4. Nuxe Multi-Purpose Dry Oil 

I haven't found anything wrong with this oil so far and it has been my go-to product now the weather is getting colder. It smells GREAT, and can be used to moisturise body, hair and face. I must admit that I was a bit dubious to use it on my hair, but if you only use a little bit it leaves your hair soft and shiny - I can see this being a firm favourite throughout winter. 

5. REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask 

Another firm favourite is the REN radiance renewal mask - I only picked up a travel size from M&S as it the full size is quite pricey, however, I think I will HAVE to purchase the full size as this, dare I say it, has been the best mask I have ever used; it doesn't dry out my skin and doesn't break me out either and it leaves it well... renewed. 

What are your current favourites?
