How to Style Your Dream Christmas Tree with Taline Gabriel

Hippie Lane founder, Taline Gabriel, has taken a moment to share with us how to decorate your Christmas tree, and how to stay focused on your styling vision to create your Dream Christmas.

A Dream Christmas for me revolves around food, family and simple, yet elegant styling. Simplifying has been a recurring theme in my wellness goals and this applies to all aspects of my life including the festive period.

The first sign that Christmas is on the radar is the appearance of Christmas trees in all the local stores. This leads to the excitement of assembling and styling your own Christmas Tree!

My advice is to:

1. Collect some snaps of your ideal tree and direct your energy into achieving this look.

2. Stay true to your vision and notice what you like about it.

3. Pay attention to its size, styled colours, decor and room setting.

4. I like a minimal look so I keep it simple with tree baubles (using a few colours only) on a petite Christmas tree, with a few added fairy lights to set the mood  and create ambience.

5. Add final touches with stars and confetti; they’re always a welcome addition to the styling… and puppies also help!

Celebrate Cinnamon Bun Day with this Tasty Recipe

October 4th is a special day for lovers of the delicious cinnamon bun – yum! All across Sweden, families and loved ones gather together to celebrate Cinnamon Bun Day by making – and enjoying – this classic homemade treat.

Be inspired to embrace this wonderful Swedish tradition for yourself with our simple recipe. Why not take a moment this week to slow down, pause and reconnect with the simple joy of baking from scratch?

Let us know how you go by sharing your buns on Instagram with #kikkiKLove.


300ml / 1 ¼ cup whole milk
1 tsp ground cardamom seeds
50g / ¼ cup butter
425g / 3.4 cups plain flour
7g / 1 small packet fast action yeast
60g /⅓ cup caster sugar

¼ tsp fine salt
1 egg, beaten lightly
Oil, to grease

For the filling

75g /⅓ cup cup butter, softened
50g / ½ cup dark brown sugar
2tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt

To finish

1 egg, beaten lightly
Demerara sugar, to sprinkle


Start by heating the milk until steaming in a pan with the cardamom. Allow to simmer for a couple of minutes before taking off the heat. Allow to cool until lukewarm. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. There is no need to add water to the yeast before adding this in. Make a well in the bowl and add in the lightly beaten egg and the warm milk mixture. Combine with a wooden spoon.

Using your hands, kneed for 5 minutes on a floured surface until the mixture feels soft and springy. Place dough into a greased bowl, cover and leave somewhere warm to prove for at least 45 minutes. Meanwhile, make your filling by beating together each ingredient until well combined.

Once your dough has risen, take it out of the bowl, knock back and roll into a 35cm x 25cm rectangle. Spread the filling evenly onto dough and roll tightly into a Swiss roll shape. Cut into 7 equal sized buns and line up on a baking tray. Leave to prove a second time for 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator. The dough should spring back easily when you press it lightly.

When ready to bake, heat oven to 200C/400F/gas mark six and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Plan your Wedding with Liv Purvis

When it comes to getting wedding planning advice, there is no one better than someone who is currently planning their own wedding! That’s why we asked the lovely and inspiring Liv Purvis to share some of her wedding planning tips using our newest Always & Forever Collection. Check our Liv’s YouTube channel to see her video.

What is your number one tip for planning a meaningful and beautiful day?
Just to make sure you’re doing it your way. Try not to be too governed by trends or expectations, but be guided by the things that truly make you and your partner happy- whether that’s just being together, or having a huge party- make sure you’re doing it the way you want to.

Which kikki.K product has helped you the most?
I absolutely love the Wedding Notes book. Although there are so many amazing pieces that you could easily forget to pick up, it’s the notes book that won me over- it’s a perfect size and covers all ground- as well as having a handy tick list to help you see how you’re getting on, which is so rewarding.


How have you split the planning with your fiance?
Yes! I don’t think it would feel right if one of us had more responsibility than the other, but naturally there are things we both prefer about the planning process so I’m happy to take lead with the things he’d rather step back on- and vice versa.

Are there any techniques that have helped you make the planning process fun and stress-free?
Creating mood boards, talking with my best friends and making sure we’re both communicating with one another- it’s a lot harder to plan something if you’re keeping things to yourself!

What’s one thing you wish you had known when you started planning your big day?
To enjoy it- it will fly be so quickly, and I truly think the build up is all part of the magical experience.

What element of your big day are you most looking forward to seeing come to life?
Just seeing all of our family and friends come together and (hopefully) have a good time! Selfishly I’m looking forward to all of it really, but dancing into the evening (pizza or no pizza) is definitely something I can’t wait for.
