Woman's TikTok tutorial on how to make a bed could banish couples' blanket-sharing woes – Yahoo News

A Swedish photographer and videographer who lives in the Arctic has appeared to have inspired American couples with her TikTok video on how to make a bed.
Cecilia Blomdahl, 32, who’s originally from Gothenburg, Sweden, now lives in a small cabin in Svalbard, Norway, with her boyfriend Christoffer and her dog, a Finnish Lapphund named Grim. Blomdahl may have banished blanket fights from her life by making her bed the “Scandinavian” way.
Svalbard is a community located on a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The island is close to the North Pole, according to Blomdahl, and temperatures can get low during winter.
Blomdahl recorded how she makes her bed and shared the video to her TikTok account, @sejsejlija, on Oct. 10, which has been viewed more than 751,700.
She makes her bed with a fitted sheet, two down duvet inserts in respective duvet covers, one for her and one for Christoffer, a set of pillows with pillow covers and a bedspread.
“In Scandinavia, it is very common to have two duvets,” Blomdahl told Fox News Digital via email.
“For me, it has as much to do with the temperature as with the importance of good sleep,” Blomdahl wrote. “My partner and I have completely different preferences when it comes to the temperature for sleeping, so sharing one would be a nightmare.”
She noted that couples who each have their own duvet don’t have to fight over the blanket in the middle of the night.
“It is also very nice in the winter, when it is very cold, to be able to make your own little down cocoon,” Blomdahl added.
Blomdahl noted that top sheets are completely skipped in Scandinavian beds. Instead, she has a lighter down duvet for summer and a thicker down duvet for winter, to address “different levels of warmth.”
The outdoor temperature in Svalbard can go down to -10 degrees Celsius or colder during winter, according to Blomdahl.
Blomdahl’s bed tutorial has seemingly resonated with American couples who struggle to share blankets with a significant other.
“This makes more sense than how we do it in North America,” one TikTok commenter wrote. “Who wouldn’t want their own duvet!!”
“Honestly the first time I experienced 2 duvets was in Iceland and it was LIFECHANGING,” another commenter wrote.
“This is how my husband and I do it too here in America,” a commenter chimed in. “We can not share one blanket we have to have at least two for our sanity.”
“We recently got 2 duvets and it’s been the best choice for the longevity of our marriage,” one TikTok user joked.
Blomdahl is continuing to amaze her two million TikTok followers with other arctic-focused “day in the life” style videos that she shares, which document how she preps for outings and deals with Svalbard’S polar night – a natural phenomenon where nighttime conditions last for more than 24 hours for months at a time.

Shangela’s hard work paid off on Dancing With the Stars, Monday. After last week’s performance, judge Len Goodman said her legwork needed to be more crisp, and she totally delivered. Head judge, Len Goodman said. “It was your best dance of the season.” “But Len, were my legs crispy?” asked Shangela. “Your legs were flexed, they had drive and you had heal leads going on,” the judge replied. While fans agreed with Len’s assessment, they probably didn’t expect what happened next. The drag queen pulled a plastic bag from her from her top and it had a piece of fried chicken in it. Shangela explained, “Mamma said to make sure I give you this crispy chicken because my legs were just as crispy.” The moment was so unusual, host Tyra Banks was hungry for more information. “Did you dance this entire time with a piece of fried chicken in your decote?” she asked. “I danced with two pieces of fried chicken in my titties,” Shangela replied. She withdrew a second chicken leg from her top, which Banks eagerly grabbed and took a large bite. Based on the reactions from Twitter, viewers were completely dumbfounded when Banks took a bite out of the Shangela seasoned fried chicken and then went back for more. Chicken legs must be lucky like rabbits’ feet, because Shangela scored a personal best with her finger-licking-good performance. And while Tyra literally savored the moment, guest-judge Michael Bublé had a pretty good time too. “This is the best day of my life,” he said.

On The Late Late Show With James Corden Monday, Corden opened the show by addressing his being banned from the popular New York City restaurant Balthazar. Early last week, the owner of the restaurant, Keith McNally, posted on Instagram announcing the ban and accusing Corden of being abusive to the staff. Corden said it all began because of his wife’s food allergy, and said he regrets his actions that day. “We sit down, we ordered, and my wife explained that she has a serious food allergy, right? So when everybody’s meals came, my wife was given the food that she was allergic to. But she hadn’t taken a bite of it or anything, all was good,” Corden said. “As her meal came wrong to the table the third time, in the heat of the moment, I made — I made a sarcastic, rude comment about cooking it myself. And it is a comment I deeply regret.” Corden said he called McNally and apologized for the incident, and hopes to be able to apologize to the staff in person someday. “That I’ve ever upset anybody, ever, it was never my intention. It just wasn’t,” Corden said. “And I love that restaurant, I love the staff there. I hope I’m allowed in again one day so when I’m back in New York I can go there and apologize in person, which is something I will absolutely do.” McNally rescinded the ban following Corden’s apology, saying he believes in second chances.
