It's time to celebrate and party with all your loved ones. It only makes sense that we combine the celebrations with two of our favourite designs from the year; here are some simple DIY photo booth backdrops to keep things magical and on trend.
On Friday, it may have been a very dreary and wet July afternoon but we were having fun and frolics in the shelter of Sass & Belle HQ! To raise money for Breast Cancer Care we held our very own Strawberry Tea – all part of Breast Cancer Care’s Summer fundraiser. Our ordinary conference room was transformed to a pretty room full of scrumptious treats! There were strawberries aplenty and lots of sugary goodness which we happily indulged in. We baked, we put up bunting, we drank (a lot) of Pimms and most importantly we donated. Here are some tips from our bakers, pictures of the big day and a little bit about how Breast Cancer Care is changing lives…
Today marks the first day of Wimbledon and the weather couldn’t be better! During the next two weeks our favourite tennis players will battle it out underneath the British sun (and inevitably rain) to be crown the winners of Wimbledon 2015. The tournament is widely celebrated and is a huge part of British summertime, with the most unsuspecting of people becoming tennis fans for the duration of the event. To get in the spirit of things why not host your own Wimbledon party? Follow our tips to ensure you have a right, o’ knees up!
In honour of ‘Take Your Dog to Work Day’ we’re celebrating our mascots who are with us every step of the way, cheering us on and assisting when needed (they’re surprisingly willing participants). At Sass & Belle HQ we’re often accompanied by a furry fiend in the form of Winston Westwood. Not only is he is the owner of a ridiculously cool name but he’s also an adorable, lovable beast with the best hair in the office. If you’ve popped into the Brighton store in recent months then you will have probably noticed a cute little puppy making regular visits and poking out of a coat. This is Spud Pettitt, a scruffy little pup whose as energetic as she is pretty. It’s a shame she’s not for sale because she’d be a bestseller! When she’s not wooing the crowds of cooing fans she can be quite helpful too, trying her hand at all sorts of tasks. We hound Winston on the secrets behind his luscious locks while little Spud shows us her average day on the shop floor…
Today is Environment Day and to celebrate we are sharing with you our words of wisdom on growing your own herbs. We love to get our fingers green at Sass & Belle, particularly when the sun starts showing its pretty face. We also love herbs and think the addition of treats such as parsley and dill can transform a recipe. Not only is it lovely to grown your own, it helps saves the environment by reducing the transportation of pre-made herbs and thus your carbon footprint becomes that bit lighter. Follow our ‘how to’ and get your hands nice and grubby and green…
