How to Keep Things Hygge in the Spring

The hygge way of life was invented to combat the notorious depression that comes with winter. Denmark has long, drawn-out winters with scarce amounts of daylight. Therefore, they needed a way (or a feeling, if you will) to not only get through this time, but to embrace it. So hygge was born.
Hygge, when defined simply by the Oxford Dictionary, is : a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.

Note that the dictionary definition doesn’t really state anything specifically about winter. So who’s to say you can’t “hygge” during every season? If anything, hygge is imperative during Spring.
You’ve just hunkered down for 6-8 months and can’t really remember what green grass and daylight look like.. So now’s the time to truly embrace the coziness that comes with sunshine and a completely fresh and new landscape.

Here are a few ways to carry the hygge lifestyle with you throughout Spring:

1

There’s nothing like fresh flowers and precious little succulents to chase off those winter blues. Bring bright colors and fresh pops of green into your home to brighten it up and make it extra cozy. Plus, nothing says “I have my shit together” quite like a vase of flowers or a well-kept succulent garden! That’s right, look at me, keeping plants alive!

If you’re in the Flathead Valley, your best and most delightful place to get either of these pretty little home treats is going to be Mum’s Flowers in Whitefish! Plus, they have a build-your-own succulent garden station and some of the cutest gifts you’ll ever see.


T I P S  F O R  H Y G G E  S U C C E S S :
1. Start small; buy one small succulent garden or one pretty bouquet of flowers, and watch them transform your room
2. If you’re not going to go local on your flower buying, the next best place is Costco (the best bang for your buck!)

2

Natural light is one of the coziest things nature has to offer. Let those bright yellow sun rays dance across your room, or the cool blue hues cast from a rainy day… No matter what type of natural light you’re letting in, it’s going to instantly create a cozier vibe.

T I P S  F O R  H Y G G E  S U C C E S S :
1. Open up those blinds first thing in the morning to take advantage of morning light.
2. Clean windows and windowsills make for a better experience
3. If you have large windowsills, keep some plants in them (pretty for you, good for the plants)

outdoors

Even if this means just hanging out in your back yard, just get out there. Get a little bit of sunshine, get your feet dirty, smell the rain, read a book on the patio.. Just be outside, and disconnect for a little while. Brownie points if you actually make it out on a hike or picnic. But no matter where you go, if you’re outside and your relaxed, you’ve got it all figured out.


T I P S  F O R  H Y G G E  S U C C E S S :
1. Create a back (or front) yard sanctuary. This can always be done on a budget! You just need a chair or two, a small table, a blanket and some candles!
2. Go the extra mile to have a real picnic. I mean those picture perfect picnics you see in the movies. It will make the experience that much more hygge to have everything set up so well! (it’s like ‘plating’ a meal – making it look almost too good to eat!)

candles

Ah, candles. All the candles! You cannot hygge, without the candles. And if we’re being honest with ourselves, candles just make everything better. Having a nice dinner, add candles. Relaxing at home while reading a book? Light some candles! Bubble bath!? Not without the candles! Candles bring instant warmth, glow and coziness into any situation they’re brought into. I mean, even Satan worshipers use candles! (Hah). But seriously, the Danes constantly have candles going, and for good reason; they just make everything better.


T I P S  F O R  H Y G G E  S U C C E S S :
1. Buy UNSCENTED or naturally scented candles made from beeswax or soy! Scented candles and petroleum based candles release toxic chemicals into your home and that is NOT hygge. Plus, if you have a ton of candles going at once, you’re definitely not going to want them all to be scented!
2. Even when doing mundane, day-to-day activities, light a candle or two! You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the atmosphere something as simple as lighting a candle can create!

All of these tips are just little things you can do each day to create a cozy life. It’s about simplicity, togetherness, and comfort. There are many ways to incorporate this amazing way of living into your daily schedule. The Little Book of Hygge is where I discovered it all. I immediately fell in love, began applying these rules to my life, and then wrote my first two posts about it :
Hygge Part 1 : What is Hygge and Why Do You Need It In Your Life?
and
Hygge Part 2 : How to Embrace Hygge In Your Everyday Life

My life has been more cozy, organized, and full since discovering hygge. And I can only hope that it does the same for each and every one of you.

Merchandising, My New Love!

I was recently promoted to “Head of Merchandising and Inventory” at The Montana Scene.
I have been “head of inventory” for quite a while (making sure all the stores get the product they need on a regular basis), but with my new job I get to spend a lot of time reaching out to all 5 Montana Scene locations, making sure their stores and windows look top notch. It’s been a blast so far, and it’s really sparked in me a love and passion for Visual Merchandising!

For the past few years, I have been casually working on displays and prettying up the Flathead Valley stores each time I worked at them. But now it’s my DUTY to make sure each store looks good. And while I’m really loving it, it has made me realize that I have a lot of learning and growing to do when it comes to my Merchandising skills.  I can’t wait to keep learning and growing and getting better.

Here are a few shots of the Kalispell store merchandising that I’ve done so far!

Another aspect of my ‘new job’ that I’m absolutely loving is getting the opportunity to style and direct photo shoots once a month. It’s literally like, a dream come true. This is another thing that’s fairly new to me, but styling outfits is already my thing, so the styling aspect of the shoot is a breeze! It’s the directing that’s hard;  Getting models into different outfits, different poses, and ensuring that you can see the logo on each product in every shot, all at the same time, can be pretty stressful! Especially when it’s 17 fricking degrees. 

It’s such a fun thing to do though, and the creative aspect of it really and truly fulfills me. I get to work with the amazing J. Vigil Photography (Jaci, mah girrrlll) once a month, and she’s the absolute shit, guys.

It’s such a blast, too. Not only is Jaci amazing, but the models have all been fun to work with.. And when I’m directing shoots I feel like I can be my true, weird self.
I’ve kind of become “known” for the erratic noises I make in order to get models to laugh, so you can always count on me to do something weird as hell to get the perfect shot.

(all of the following photos were taken by J. Vigil Photography unless otherwise noted.)

Here are some shots from the few photo shoots I’ve directed and styled over the past few months!

Styling Adventure Themed Graphic Tees

We all love a good Graphic Tee, right? How about adventure / outdoor themed ones? Now, graphic tees aren’t necessarily my go-to. I’m pretty “plain” when it comes to my style choices; no neon’s, no bold patterns – mostly earth tones, black and denim.
But when it comes to adventure tees, no one does it like The Montana Scene (and I’m not just saying that because I work there).

I also know what some of you may be thinking “I’m just NOT a t-shirt type of person in general”, well FEAR NOT! I’m not either!
But that’s what’s great about The Montana Scene, it’s so much more than just t shirts.

Adorable feminine long sleeves, long and roomy tunics, trendy pullovers, adorable flowy tees, & good old fashioned super soft fleeces – you name it, they’ve got it… And you bet your sweet ass it’s got something cute printed on it.

So while “Graphic T’s” may not be everyone’s thing, it’s SO EASY to dress them up, accessorize them, and really just bring them from “t-shirt and jeans” to the employee at Chik-fil-A telling you how trendy you look! So here I am, eagerly waiting to show you how!

OFFICIAL HIPSTER UNIFORM – FLANNEL & A BEANIE :fe27fe401f2f1005c1118b95b17e0651

|  Beanie, Flannel & Jeans – Target |  Flowy T – The Montana Scene  |

A classic go-to. Any shirt can be adorably accessorized with a trendy flannel & a matching beanie. Bonus points if your nails match your outfit! Not a hipster? Not so into flannels? No worries, we’ve got other options.

MILITARY JACKET FOR THE WIN :IMG_2834 (2)

|  Jeans – Target  | Military Jacket – TJ Maxx (similar)Pullover – The Montana Scene  |

A classic and trendy MUST HAVE piece, the military jacket! I love this item so much. It’s a great closet staple that can be dressed up or down super easily. Layer it over this presh pullover, go get yourself a damn latte, & then explore! Don’t forget the aviators!

RIPPED JEANS & TUNICS & FLOPPY HATS – OH MY! :rsz_first_coffee_long_sleeve_tunic_1_of_1

|  Jeans & Floppy Hat – Target  |  Coffee & Explore Tunic – The Montana Scene |

My personal uniform ^. Ripped jeans haven’t gone out of style yet, so here I am – making one golden-ager at a time tell me “you need to buy some new pants”! (; I love tunics because they are so flowy and can be worn with jeans OR leggings. (I own this ^ one in pink & cement). And of course, the floppy hat, can’t live without it!

POCKET TEES & BOYFRIEND JEANS :113CROP

|  Boyfriend Jeans – Target  | Pocket T – The Montana Scene  |

One of my favorite twists on “jeans and a t-shirt” is swapping out plain ol’ jeans for a pair of boyfriend jeans. Throw on this adorable pocket tee & a pair of strappy sandals and you have yourself a beachy-casual outfit that’s not only comfy, but stylish too.

As you can tell (and as I’m sure you already know if you know me well) I am a huge fan of floppy hats.. Wide brimmed fedoras. Adventure hats.. Whatever you want to call them.
There’s only a few days out of the week you’ll catch me without one (day 1 & 2 after washing my hair – duh!)

Try out any of these styles next time you throw on a graphic tee! You won’t regret it. And if anyone ever tells you that you can’t style the hell out of a graphic tee, or a Montana T shirt, or anything for that matter – you show them otherwise! 

Whether you’re rocking that athleisure wear, or getting glam, a Montana Scene shirt can absolutely be included. Not to toot my own horn, but come on, look how cute literally all of that stuff was.

Hygge: Part 2 – How To Embrace Hygge in your Everyday Life

In my last post we discussed what Hygge is and why you should incorporate it into your life. Now that we officially have snow on the ground here in Montana, I feel like Hygge is even more important to learn about, and begin applying to your life!

Candle-lit rooms, fireplaces blazing, comfortable blankets, and hot drinks all seem to be pretty basic life-things. But once you learn what Hygge is, it becomes hard not to view those things as the delightful treasures they truly are.

I had a conversation with a friend after she read my first post and she said “Growing up in Boise area there’s a lot of cool vibes down there. In particular, there was this coffee shop called The Flying M. Still to this day I haven’t found a coffee shop that has the same vibe or came anywhere close to it. There were always local artists selling their art and home roasted coffee beans, daily.. And an atmosphere that made you feel right at home.” and I honestly cant think of anything more Hygge than that. That’s what it’s all about.

While learning about the concept of Hygge and why you need it was a great start, I want everyone to come away from this with a good idea of how to incorporate it into their daily lives. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on The Little Book of Hygge, you’ll find this delightful little page in there called The Hygge Manifesto.

 

The Hygge Manifesto is an amazing info graphic containing the basic stepping stones to bringing Hygge into your life. I wanted to elaborate a little bit, and add more description to the 10 main concepts of Hygge.

EMBRACING THE HYGGE MANIFESTO

 

Make day-to-day activities more Hygge:

Want to make your life more Hyggelit? I know I do. Here are some basic ways to make every day activities cozy, warm, comfortable and relaxing.
Sitting in your bedroom or living room on your computer?
– Light 3-15 candles, it instantly makes a room more warm.
– Plug in that Salt Lamp, don’t have one? You’re missing out.
– Turn off those main over head lights and crank up that fireplace if you have one.
– Grab a blanket, some pillows and some socks or slippers.
– Turn on Pandora, I suggest The Lumineers, Hozier, The Postal Service, or Death Cab for Cutie Radio.
– Been scrolling aimlessly for too long? Ditch the computer and pick up a book, you wont be sorry.

Having dinner with friends or family?
– Opt for a night in! It’s more relaxing and personable.
– Play a game! Nothing is more Hygge than laughing with loved ones.
– Encourage comfortable attire, and make your home more welcoming. (Candles, hello!)
– Serve warm, hearty food and hot drinks. Attempt to create a beautiful table scape.

Going out for a coffee or lunch date?
– Find a local cafe with a great vibe, they’re out there, no matter where you are!
– Bring a book or a friend and just relax. Don’t rush through your coffee or meal, this is an experience!
– Find a spot with great lighting. String lights, big windows and a rustic feel. Bonus points if they play great music.
– Order a pastry or two, I bet you deserve it.
– Chat with strangers! Sometimes they have really neat or funny things to talk about.
– R E L A X

There are ways to make just about any situation more Hygge. (Minus like, Emergency Rooms and Dentist Offices).
Hygge is a way of life. In all instances, seek out a way to make these instances more comfortable.
Hygge is about creating fond memories, having a good time with loved ones, and enjoying every single moment. It’s about great lighting, good food, and feeling comfortable and safe. Hygge is everything comfy, cozy, relaxing and warm, and it’s absolutely wonderful. I encourage you to live your life in a way where you’re always searching for Hygge, because it’s a truly delightful way to live.

How are you going to start incorporating Hygge into your life? Buy some candles? Call up your old best friends for a night in? Invest in a salt lamp or a new cozy blanket? Wherever you start is perfect, because you’ll notice a difference right away.

So go on, get! Get your Hygge on. And don’t be embarrassed to say the word (HUE-GUH). The more you talk about Hygge, the more normal it becomes… and you’ll intrigue and inspire everyone around you!

Hygge: Part 1 – What is Hygge and Why Do You Need it in Your Life?

Pretty recently I came across the topic of Hygge and was absolutely intrigued. Almost immediately after learning what it was, I went out and bought The Little Book of Hygge – Danish Secrets to Happy Living by Meik Wiking. And so began my infatuation with the simple, comforting and beautiful way the Danes live their lives.

Ah, I’m sure you, too, are intrigued and you’re probably ready to know (if you haven’t already blown this post off and just Googled it) :

What is Hygge? And how the in the world do you pronounce it?

Hygge (hue-guh) is, to use Mr. Wiking’s words, “…about an atmosphere and an experience, rather than about things. It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe, that we are shielded from the world and allow ourselves to let our guard down.”

Hygge is sipping hot cocoa by the fire in your favorite pair of socks.
Hygge is Christmas, early evening, when the food is almost ready, the lighting is dim and glowy, and everyone’s hearts are buzzing with warmth and comfort.
Hygge is relaxing at your favorite brick walled, dimly-lit coffee shop, listening to indie music and taking it all in.
Hygge is wrapping up in your favorite blanket, bra off, hair up, watching a snow storm consume your neighborhood while you watch from the comfort of the indoors.

Hygge is everything comfortable, warm, and relaxing. It’s togetherness, music, pastries and candlelight. Hygge is, to generalize; happiness.

Why do you need Hygge in your life?

The reason the concept of Hygge struck me so hard, is mostly due in part to the fact that, like Denmark, Montana has long, grueling winters. Part of my research lead me to uncover that many years ago, the Danes came up with a way to combat the notorious depression that can set in when you live in a place with crazy-long winters.
It was a new way of life, a way to embrace the long “depressing” winters, rather than dread them. They yearned for a way to look forward to the frigid, dark season ahead of them, so they created one!

It’s inspiring, if you ask me. And I feel like we Americans, and especially us that live in the North (Montana) could really, truly benefit from bringing Hygge into our lives.

The winters are long, and I know from 18 + years of living in the Flathead Valley that there are still thousands of people here that haven’t found a way to cope with the way a long winter makes them feel.
I want everyone to have the opportunity to find pure and blissful joy by embracing the cold season, rather than trying to escape it or complain about it.

So grab some close friends and family, light a few candles, climb into your Hyggekrog, and delve into the wonderful life that is Hygge.
I encourage you to do some of your own research.
Hop on Pinterest and create a Hygge Board for inspiration and warm feelings.

And I would also like you to keep your eyes out for Hygge Part 2: How to Embrace Hygge in your Everyday Life… where we’ll talk about things you can do to make your life more Hygge.

See you soon.montanalaurasig

S E P T E M B E R

september

Do you ever have those moments where you find a quote online and you think “holy crap, it’s almost like who ever wrote that can see straight into my soul”?
That’s what happened to me when I found this heavenly little blurb by Peggy Toney Horton.

I don’t want to seem cliche, but for me it feels like while everything begins to die in September, I finally come to life.
I know what you’re thinking, “come to life? In what sense were you NOT alive?”.
The 3 endless months of hot dry weather assassinated my soul, okay?

As the weather cools off, the leaves turn orange, and the clouds finally roll in – I settle into my absolute favorite half of the year: fall & winter.
I simply do not belong in 80 degree weather. I hate being hot, I don’t enjoy sweating,  and I hate the fact that I can’t achieve a comfortable temperature by removing layers in the summer, like I can in the fall by adding them. You can only get SO naked, you know? Yeah, you know. You know exactly what I’m talking about.

What I don’t want happening this fall is for me to spend 3 months gawking at the orange leaves from the mundane comfort of home, and not getting out to truly enjoy them.
So I’m making PLANS; if Montana ever stops being on fire… that is.

My September plans will definitely seep into October and November, seeing as the state of Montana isn’t expected to have it’s wildfires under control for quite some time. So for the sake of the entire North West, you all better be praying to the weather god for rain – or whatever you do. (;

Here’s what I’ve got going on…

Farmers Markets:
I’m mostly interested in the the Kalispell Farmer’s Market. It’s close by, easy to access, and there aren’t a million people there. I look forward to a few brisk Saturday mornings, latte in hand, enjoying the plethora of autumn’s harvest: sunflowers, fresh corn, apples and pumpkins. I intend to get out and enjoy one of Whitefish’s Farmers Markets too. (they’re just a little more hectic).

Sweet Pickins Pumpkin Patch:
Now, apparently this place has been around for a long time. I don’t remember ever going to it, AND it seems fairly aimed at families with kids.. But Paul and I are DEFINITELY going. We usually just buy pumpkins the day before Halloween which is great, but how much more enjoyable would it be to go to a pumpkin patch and pick your own, all while getting to enjoy a fricken Autumn Wonderland. I mean, LOOK at this place! Little slice of autumn heaven.

PicMonkey Collage

Much more sitting at Colter Coffee:
This is one of my favorite past times. I used to come to Colter Coffee after school to “do homework” all the time. (I really just sat around with books in front of me, sipping coffee or chai). The vibe inside Colter is really what people are after though. There isn’t anything else like it (IMO), especially not in Kalispell. Now, if you were to head over to say, Portland or Seattle, there would be something similar on every street corner. But we just have one, which makes it that much more special. Colter Coffee definitely has the hygge factor that I’m constantly seeking out. (Side note: We’ll go over hygge in the near future, promise. Just google it for now.)
(Extra side note: I’m not a Starbucks hang out kind of gal, so don’t even SUGGEST that their atmosphere beats out Colter, don’t you dare).

Lots of reading, hopefully outdoors:
I thoroughly enjoy the idea of laying in a wooded thicket, sipping on hot tea, bundled up in a cable knit throw – reading the afternoon away.. That’s not super realistic though, so I’ll settle for a ton of reading, anywhere, anytime. I have a ton of books on my current lineup, three of which I’ve already started.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – Queen J.K. Rowling
You Are a Badass – Jen Sincero
The Little Book of Hygge – Meik Wiking
You Are a Badass at Making Money – Jane Sincero
And a few others, I wont bore you.

A few fall hikes at GNP:
If the poor park makes it through this damn fire season, I’d love to make it up there for at least a few hikes. It absolutely kills me that it’s on fire. Just one more reason to believe that summer’s the worst. Drought, 80+ degrees every day, & thousands of people crowding our beautiful Glacier National Park = not my idea of a good time. I like to go to the park in the spring and fall. Plus, those mountains are just way prettier when they’re snow capped.

 

So that’s what I have going on for September. Along with the obvious: lot’s of working, sleeping, coffee and studying.
What am I missing? What do you guys do in September?

Back to the Drawing Board (Kind Of)

back to the drawing board

Very recently, I was attempting to last-minute enroll into college. The process didn’t go as planned and I came to the realization that waiting was the logical and responsible choice.

The degree I chose to pursue was Graphic Design – something I’ve established a pretty strong interest in over the past few years. I was unfortunately not someone who found their academic niche right out of high school, therefore I felt as though it was simply a waste of money to attempt furthering my education at the time.

But something I DID discover right out of high school was my love of blogging. In hindsight I realize that I fell in love with blogging because I felt as though it was my only outlet to continue writing after graduation.

Throughout my erratic high school career, the one and only thing that was constant for me was writing. I adored any English class I was in. I loved writing essays, short stories, poetry, and even in diaries/journals. English was the only subject in school that gave me any form of fulfillment, and the only thing I felt I honestly excelled at.

So to no surprise, when I was required to write a 300-500 word essay for my placement testing in order to apply for college, I lit up. I hunkered down, turned on The Lumineers radio, and I busted out (with ease), a 500 word 5 paragraph essay… As if it were something I did on a regular basis.

And it all clicked. Furthering my education, however I end up going about that, is exceedingly important to me. Graphic Design is 100% something I intend to turn into a career… But writing has been, is, and always will be something that I am profoundly passionate about… and how lucky am I to have blogging as a platform to share my greatest passion with anyone who cares to read it?

So what does this mean for me and my future? I can say with total certainty that I have no idea. What I do know is that I’d love to spend a lot of my time writing. I want to create an e-space full of wonderful, read-worthy content: stunning self-produced photos, beautiful graphics, and words that actually mean something. And what I know I don’t want is a generic blog full of shit that I don’t actually care about sharing.

I love clothes too though so don’t think you’re getting out of outfit posts here and there.

I’ll get there. I’ll run an awesome, consistent blog. I’ll wow you with just how mundane my life really is, and also with my ability to make it seem as though it’s not. I’ll do what I’m passionate about – and I won’t curate my content to “what I think is going to get me the most reads/followers”. I just want to be here, being my truest selfsharing my life with whoever wants to “listen”.

Hopefully you’re down with that – and hopefully I can entertain at least a few individuals with my musings. But if not, you can always go watch dog videos, or read articles entitled “Celebrities and the Surprising Nicknames they’ve Given their Genitals” or something along those lines. I don’t know – there’s plenty to do on the WWW. (Side note – I just came to the realization that World Wide Web does in fact correlate with the www we put at the beginning of web addresses – oops).

But here’s to getting back to the drawing board, or whatever. Coming to realizations. Beginning new adventures. Figuring my life out – whatever that means.
Here’s to being one step closer to knowing exactly what it is that sets my soul on fire.

And this journey will entail ample amounts of wine & coffee, lots of spilling my heart out, hopefully a college degree?, but definitely, definitely a lot more time spent doing what I love.
