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 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!

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?
Wedding season is well and truly upon us! Whether you’re a guest sipping Champagne or you’re walking down the aisle and saying ‘I do’ it’s hard not to have all the love go to your head (or maybe it’s the bubbles!). Each wedding we’ve attended we’ve collectively cooed and applauded as Brides continue to wow us with their incredible table displays. Becoming as integral as the food being served (well, almost), knowing what sets a good table display apart can be hard. Luckily Sass & Belle are here with some golden tips and tricks we’ve picked up along the way…
At Sass & Belle we admire those thrifty folk who can turn an old, unwanted item into an upcycled treasure. So we tried our hand at it and we’re pretty pleased with the results (even if we do say so ourselves). It’s easy to be crafty and kind to the environment and we’re going to share with you our results and tips. This week we took some old unloved books and turned them into art. Yep…that’s right. Art!
