Exciting news! I have teamed up with Kolla to create a competition I think you will enjoy.
Throughout the whole month of June all the images shared with the #thatscandinavianfeeling hashtag over on Instagram will be entered into the competition, and at the end of the month the winning photo will be sold on their website for a limited time. The winner will also receive their image as a print, and 100% of the sales will be donated to a charity of the winners choice. How great is that?
Good luck to you all, I can’t wait to see how you find that Scandinavian feeling this summer.
If you are new to the hashtag and my blog, here is a little summary to get you started:
To me it is a lot of things but at the same time hard to explain, and I guess that’s why it is so fascinating and deep in my heart. I have now lived away from Scandinavia for over 8 years, but for some reason, the feeling is stronger than ever. It is not about location or origin but simply a mix of coziness & calm. It is a warm atmosphere that invites you in and makes you feel welcome but at the same time a cool freshness that hits you like a winter breeze. It is wrapping yourself up in a nice comfy blanket with a hot drink and a cinnamon bun. It is simplicity and minimalism, focusing on the little things in life. It is wooden houses, reindeers, knitted jumpers, fjords & mountains..
Whether you are from Scandinavia or just have a Nordic state of mind, I’d love to see what you think. So, what is that Scandinavian feeling to you and where do you go to discover it? Head over to the #thatscandinavianfeeling feed on Instagram and have a browse to see all the entries we have had so far for inspiration.
