Why I haven't set myself any New Year's Resolutions
Whilst I'm still struggling to get to grips with the fact we are already in 2022, the new year is here and magazines are full of healthy living plans and all the ads on the telly are telling us to hit the gym.

Taking inspiration from Norwegian Cabin Culture
Norwegian cabin culture is nothing short of a national obsession and the hytte (the Norwegian word for cabin) is an integral part of friluftsliv, the Norwegian outdoors lifestyle.
Norwegian words and expressions like på hytta – meaning at or to the cabin; til fjells – meaning to the mountains; and til skogs – meaning to the forest, are etched onto the Norwegians’ hearts.
Introducing the Hytte Box, our Winter 2021 Limited Edition
The Hytte Box has been designed to recreate the delicious feelings of relaxation and indulgence that come with cosy getaways. Soft blankets, the earthy smells of the forest, the flickering light of candles and wood fires and star-filled skies… Picture it all, lovingly wrapped in a classic Alice & Peg gift box.
