Hygge and the Art of Coziness

The Oxford Dictionary recently released their 2016 “Word of the Year” finalists and winner, post-truth. Most commonly (and unfortunately) associated with politics, post-truth is defined as, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief”.

Sweet & Swedish NYC (ARCHIVE 2013)

I’m very health conscious, but I’m also a Libra, so I like to balance my diet with a little something sweet. As with most things in NYC, the options for candy stores are boundless, and in order to find the best ones, you have to know where to look. The West Village is where you’ll find New York’s primo sweet (and Swedish) spot. Sockerbit, a self-serve candy bar, offers varied and delicious treats with the most amusing names. I enjoy the Vattenmeloner, Skumshots, Pasta Basta Lordgubb and Surnyckel, which were labeled “Sour Wrenches” at the store. Advertisements
