So. Cold. Yesterday it got down to 0 degrees fahrenheit! That’s -18C, for the rest of the world. It was really cold, but didn’t actually feel too terrible, because there was almost no wind.
Anyways, here are a few things that made me smile recently:
When I went shopping in the city, I stopped at Åhléns, the major department store. They had a Muji shop there, and in the shop there was a ‘clearance’ bin. I was looking for a few things to make my room and bathroom smell nicer, so I picked up a couple of things. They were in the sale bin because packaging was broken, but were still perfectly good!
For the room, spiced vanilla candle. Makes the room feel so cozy!
For the bathroom, grapefruit essential oil. A little tick I learned online for a natural bathroom deodorizer: a few drops of essential oils on cotton balls, in a bowl in the bathroom. Works like a charm!
I also browsed through a clothing store called Monki, and walked out with a blanket! Only $7, and I am in love with it. How cool is that pattern!?!
And, I found squash! I’m not sure what kind it is, but it has the texture of butternut. Definitely not as sweet or nearly as flavorful, I think next time I’m going to season it a bit more. Ah well, it was still very satisfying.
What do you use to keep your rooms smelling fresh?
