This week’s challenge- use what you have

Christmas is approaching

Christmas is approaching, and it is approaching fast! We have prepared our home and it is looking very nice, if I can say so myself. I do feel split about Christmas. It is a lot of consumerism (is that a word?) On the other hand, I think it is such a nice time to turn what is a grey and dark period into something light and festive. It is time to relax (or is it?), spend time with family and friends. I realise that this is not the case everywhere or for everyone. But if you are a lucky person who get the opportunity to enjoy this time of year- then please do!

Interior Design

We have now also lived in our place for almost 8 months and it is finally starting to look like a home. I love interior design and have sourced our furniture from different shops. It truly is a mix of Nordic flavours with hints of American and British influences. Some items are more expensive, and other items are from IKEA (I LOVE IKEA!). I will show you parts of this in a later post!

This week’s challenge 

Coming to this week’s challenge- I challenge you to use what you already have. By that I mean to use what you have in your fridge and freezer and also in cupboards. I don’t know about you, but here we can end up with a bit too many bags of dry pasta and rice. So why not spend these few weeks before Christmas to clear up your fridge, freezer and cupboards- and make space for the Christmas food? I think this will make you feel a lot better. It is easy to forget the food that you put in your freezer to eat at a later time. It is a waste! Use it…and make space for the festivities that will be here before we know it! I truly, truly recommend.
