On Sunday 26th March, we will be celebrating Mother’s Day in the UK. This post acts, not only as a reminder but as a gift guide for inspiration so you can ensure your mum feels completely special and loved on Mothering Sunday. No matter what your budget is, we have handpicked a thoughtfully curated list of gift ideas which say ‘thank you’, ‘I love you’ and ‘you’re the best’.
If you’ve been hiding under a rock or lost on an abandoned island, let us fill you in – cactuses have got big. Not as in they have suddenly become giant and are now a threat to the human race, as in they are trending BIG TIME. And we can see why. Versatile and cool, they fit into a range of interior styles and can instantly transform a room. They are also a perfect way to bring the outdoors in, especially for those that are lacking garden space. Another plus is that they are fairly undemanding in terms of care. A water here, a water there and that’s it. This might be a little testing for some people, sure. We've all been subject to the internal questioning of our ability to be a successful adult when we manage to kill a cactus that only needs to be watered once a month. Whether you’re a green fingered gal who’s the queen of plants, or someone that would rather their cactus be as plastic as Regina George, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover seven fun ways to bring cacti into your home (warning – all alternatives are super cute so be prepared to awww!)
We would be lying if we said Sass & Belle HQ don’t love a cocktail or two. Anything tropical-inspired that reminds us of warm summer evenings, we’re on board! If it quenches our thirst in the process? Then all the better! Inspired by our super summery Tropical Summer collection, we’ve created two types of cocktails, one with alcohol and one without. They are really easy to make and utterly delicious. Pass us the cocktail shaker, we’re ready to impress…
We don’t know about you but at Sass & Belle, we love Christmas decorations! We also adore sweet treats so we thought it was absolutely integral that now the festive season is upon us, we do a little DIY on edible Christmas decorations. Gingerbread is an obvious choice because of its Christmassy connotations, lasting power and, most importantly, deliciousness. Now who can resist that? Just make sure you make enough so you don’t have a half empty tree by Christmas Eve!
When the leaves fall and the evenings start drawing in, we can’t help but feel a little excited. For a lot of you, this means that a fresh new semester is on the horizon! For those at university, you will know how fun it is decking out your brand new room at uni. We, for one, love nothing more than a décor project. But along with the joys of being a student (discount anyone?!), we also know that the budget can be tight. Luckily, we're here to give you some handy tips! We’ve handpicked our favourite products that will transform your room from drab to fab. Say hello to beautiful decorations that put a smile on your face and on your wallet; what more could you want?
