Wash Away the Holiday Blues

Thank goodness for the heatwave, because we were seriously starting to wonder whether the holiday blues were terminal. If you, like us, have been desperately longing for the calming sea waves, the invigorating scent of salty sea air and the blissful sensation of walking along the sun-drenched seafront – we think we may have the cure.

We’ve recaptured the fresh, mineral scent of waves breaking on the shore of a glorious Mediterranean beach. Alive with salty sea air and invigorating notes of eucalyptus leaf, Sea Spray recreates the fresh breeze of the tide and the earthiness of solacing, shady trees.

The perfect accompaniment to the heatwave this bank holiday weekend, unleash the aquatic scent of the beach to transport yourself instantly.

Looks Like Summer’s Here!

Sun is shining, the weather is sweet, and none of us quite know what to do with ourselves. It’s very rare that we, as Brits, are graced by the sun’s presence, instead spending most days complaining about the weather (which is justified, as it’s usually awful) and praying for the summer to “just hurry up and get here”. However, praying for some nice summer weather is sort of like making a wish by throwing a coin in a fountain – there’s a part of you that wants it to come true, but you feel pretty safe knowing that it (probably) never will. So when the sun does suddenly make an appearance in the back garden, we react sort of how we would if that unicorn we wished for as a child were to show up – surprised, intrigued, disbelieving and at a bit of a loss for what to actually do with it. The sun in England, like unicorns, has always been the stuff of legend.

It’s safe to say that by the end of the school year, your child’s teacher deserves a rather big ‘thank you’, but what can you give that’s both special and thoughtful, without clogging up their desk with the usual trinkets?

Get Ready for Summer

Summer in the UK can be a somewhat… testing time. From scorching heat and glorious sunshine in the morning to sudden, unexplained torrential rainfall in the afternoon, the best way to survive a British summer is to expect the unexpected. And to dramatically lower those expectations.
