Homegirl London’s Trend Edit: Lagom Trend. Last year we were getting all warm, snug and a bit smug with the Danish concept of Hygge. It was woolly blankets, roaring fires, steaming mugs of hot chocolate and duvets on the sofa. Now it’s the Lagom Trend, which is a Swedish word meaning just the right amount. It’s about moderation, not too much, not too little but just the bit in the middle (sufficient, adequate, enough). If you live the Lagom way, you could probably save yourself some money and potentially help the environment at the same time!

Trends Edit Product Picks
Getting Your Heating Temperature Spot On: Wouldn’t it be great to heat your house at the right temperature so it’s not too hot, not too cold but just right. Well, you can actually do that if you buy the Nest Learning Thermostat because it learns how you like the temperature and will automatically turn itself down when you leave the home. You can control it remotely with the app and check the energy history, £197.64 from Amazon (product code T3010GB).
Making the Right Amount of Tea: Boiling a full kettle takes more energy, if you’re making tea for one person fill the kettle with the right amount. Treat yourself to this cute yellow Kinto Couleur Tea for One Pot, £50.24 from Amazon (product code 21863).
Getting Your Food Portions Right: Buy a Healthy Portion Plate which shows you how much of each food group you should eat. Ditch those large plates for smaller ones so you avoid over eating. The melamine plate is £9.99 and the china version is £14.99 from Healthy Portion Plate at Amazon (product codes B00EZ0GE1A / B015PU8RO0).
Planning Your Meals Better: Jamie Oliver helps you save money by shopping smarter, cooking clever and wasting less. Buy the Save With Jamie book to enjoy delicious meals with minimum waste, £13.26 from Amazon (product code 9780718158149).
Saving Your Left Overs: If you can’t seem to get your food portions right, save the leftovers for another day. Make sure you have some food storage containers to hand. This set of Nest Storage from Joseph Joseph is brilliant because they are a space saving design, £25 from Houseology (product code JJ0012).
