Your packing list! Ready, Set, September! Virtual (Re)Treat!

Are you in need of a Reset? I’m the best motivator on the web and am here to cheer you on! We are starting Ready, Set, September on Monday 29 August 2022! I would love for you to join me (and thousands of others) for this 5 day Virtual (Re)Treat. A chance to get a fresh start, to work on our homes and our daily routines. Adding in a good sprinkling of Danish hygge. But – most of all – we will learn how to take time for OURSELVES. Daily self-care is the key to a joyful life and a cozy, clean home!

There is no fee or sign up procedure. Just come with an open mind and an open heart. And get ready for some fun! Bonus points if you are “dressed for the day” when we start!


It would be great if you could bring the following items with you to our Virtual (Re)Treat. No worries if you don’t have them, absolutely not essential. And please don’t buy anything new, just use what you have available! I recommend choosing your outfit the evening before, so you are ready to jump right into our Virtual (Re)Treat. Okay, here we go…

  • Notebook or a few sheets of paper.
  • Pen or pencil.
  • A timer (egg timer, kitchen timer) but you could also use your phone.
  • A few basic cleaning supplies: a duster/rag, cleaning spray, mop. (You can see what I keep in my cleaning caddy in this very old video!)
  • A container to store your “pamper items”. (Remember, please don’t buy anything! Use an old basket, tote bag, box.) Don’t know what to put into your pamper basket? See below!


  • Light reading. A magazine, brochure, book, library book, Kindle book.
  • A colouring book, journal, sudoku/crossword/wordsearch book, etc. Colouring pens or pencils. Knitting, crochet, small craft materials. Bottle of kids’ soap bubbles.
  • Favourite DVD, music playlist, meditation or fitness app, Wordle, Octordle.
  • Any odd remnants or samples of hand lotion, foot cream, face mask, hair treatment, perfume samples, nail varnish, manicure/pedicure items.
  • Essential oils, mini diffuser.
  • Eye mask, fluffy socks, cozy blanket.
  • LED candle, string of fairy lights.
  • Water bottle, ready-mixed mocktail or cocktail, juice, smoothie, chai mix, herbal tea sachets, hot chocolate mix, gourmet coffee.
  • A few small snacks. Your old favourites or try something new! Gourmet popcorn, nuts, müsli/energy/chocolate bar, exotic fruit.

That’s it!

There is no need to print out anything for our Virtual (Re)Treat. But here – for inspiration – are a few of the various charts I use to keep me on track…
