How To Make Your Home Hygge This Winter

The season of darker nights, colder temperatures and mince pies is officially in full swing. We don’t know about you, but as soon as the clocks go forward, all we can think about is getting cosied up in front of the fire with a glass of mulled wine. Although this sounds like an inviting idea on the surface, it’s unlikely you’ll feel completely relaxed over the winter if your home is still dressed for summer.

Hygge is a defining characteristic of Danish culture. Thought of as a quality of cosiness and comfortability, hygge causes a feeling of contentment while enjoying life’s simple pleasures. It’s commonly thought that the hygge approach to life begins within the home. So, if you’re looking to make your living space a cosy haven of fulfilment and tranquility this winter, keep reading our hygge home guide for the ultimate inspiration.



Giggling Squid Arrives At Bond Street Chelmsford

Are you ready to experience plentiful dishes, bold flavours and exotic ingredients? Well, we have you covered. Giggling Squid officially opened their doors at Bond Street Chelmsford on 15th November, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

Giggling Squid is all about food with personality, cooked with expertise and shared with Thai generosity. It started in 2002 from a determination to do things differently. Back then, what was missing from the food scene was that true Thai feel – energetic, informal, adventurous, and truly welcoming. Giggling Squid believe food is to be celebrated and that you don’t have to dress up to enjoy it. Relaxed, no standing on ceremony – it’s about having a good time over something tasty.

Giggling Squid now have a few more restaurants under their belt but the important aspects haven’t changed since they started. They’re still as hungry as ever to give their guests a truly memorable experience, leaving full and happy. It’s all the incredible people, from skilled chefs to welcoming front of house staff, and their shared generosity of spirit that lies behind every guest experience.
