How long is acceptable to leave your Christmas stars in the front windows? And turn them on every night? I’ve tried googling to see what they do in Scandinavia, but couldn’t find out. Anyway, I love how cozy they make the kitchen and dining room feel and I’m all about adding a little extra brightness in these dark cold winter months. ✨

All I want to do today is cuddle up in this fluffy cloud of a blanket and knit knit knit 🖤 Anyone else feel this way?! 🤷🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️
Ilden knitrer i brændeovnen, de ristede kaffebønner kæler for snudens sensorer, og brunchmenuen lokker rumlende mavser alle dage frem til kl. 16 #hyggetothemax
Our newest Autumn addition: The Pumpkin Spice Latte 🤗 Made from scratch we use pure sweet pumpkin, our house blend of spices, double shot of espresso and topped with whipped cream 🎃Quite possibly the coziest thing you should be sipping right now. #HyggeToTheMax
Siggggh. I am the guardian, custodian and steward of this very breath, of this passing moment. I know it's precious. And every time I find the courage to awaken within it, I feel the dream of us changing, fading and fleeting. It frees my throat and softens my chest, for when I reckon the wild field of flowers and sink my spines into a holy bed of grass and bask in the stars above, I become the ecstasy of life's ache . . . @thugunicorn

( final show to follow), I've been deepening my relationship with my body. And it always comes back to the breath. Amazing. A simple enough action. But performed in all the wrong ways. Until now. Now I relish the feeling of taking deep, full breaths. Allowing my chest, diaphragm and belly to get in on all that juicy action. My breath, I have taken for granted. Have survived on sharp shallow breaths thinking this was living. Breathing deep, filling my lungs with air and then exhaling it all and then taking another breath and beginning the cycle all over again. This is claiming my space. And just the fact of being aware of this, my breath, brings me back to the present. Back to my body. Back to the gratitude for this life I have to lead to all it's fullness. And breathe. One breath at a time. Fullness. #21embody #paintingthefeminine #practice #compassion #bodyseries #bodylove #hyggetothemax #breathe #breathofthewild #lungs
So in Liverpool visiting our first born at Uni and we are right in the path of storm Doris. And I have been in awe of her power. This is wildness at it's most spectacular. But I am not afraid as this force of nature is a part of me also. We are connected and this thought fills me even more with awe and respect. #authenticsheshe #hyggetothemax #compassion #connection #rewilding #wildnature
I played around in NEXT's changing room today. I tried a pair of shorts on. I know - shock, horror!! Not really. Who says I shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't wear these shorts in public? Why should it be such an issue? For me? For you? Such an issue for a women with big thighs and backside to wear shorts? A black woman even?! When did I receive that message that it's just not the done thing? When did I internalise this hate?
I just learnt this phrase the other day, 'F**k you, it's my body.' Good ain't it!
Anyway I bought the shorts and the top. They might not keep me warm in Iceland but they're still fun to wear :) #hyggetothemax #authenticsheshe #shero #behappy #beyourownbeloved #healthateverysize #shorts #red
Spooky farm roads through the mist lead us here, where we drank a bottle of Pinot on the porch and listened to river ships toot their horns in the distance. #Hyggetothemax
