Whilst the sun may be having trouble breaking through the clouds, we know for sure that it’s spring because suddenly our path has turned blue! Bluebells are springing up all over the place and we’re more than happy to see them again. The only trouble is, they never seem to stick around for long enough, their vibrant, dewy scent disappearing with them as quickly as they arrived.
For us, there’s nothing better than discovering a new fragrance, but when you’re confronted with what seems like hundreds of different scents and notes, knowing where to begin can be tricky! The Fragrance Finder breaks down this process for you, helping you explore the different types of scent to discover the perfect fragrance for you and your home.
At long, long last, winter has come to an end and spring is finally here! With the Easter bank holiday approaching, now’s the perfect time to get creative and begin opening up your home to let spring in.
There are lots of lovely ways to add a touch of spring to your home (don’t worry, we’re not going to suggest spring cleaning – though if you do feel like having a spruce, check out our tips here), from fresh flowers to bright colours and light pastels, you can add ‘instant-Spring’ to your home using just a few home accessories!
There’s lots of reasons to love March as far as we’re concerned at A&B. The first day of spring, longer days and pretty flowers, but the main reason we love March is because it’s the month of National Fragrance Day! Scents bring us all kinds of joy, from uplifting our mood to reminding us of a special someone or memory, so on the 21st March we dedicate an entire day to celebrating the power and importance of fragrance!
- The 1st Day of Spring
Goodbye winter, so long cold! Hello spring flowers, longer days and the promise of summer.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner (Sunday 6th March – no excuses!), so make sure you plan ahead in order to get the perfect gift to say thank you to the most important lady in your life with.
As the world around us becomes increasingly more connected by technology, we find it even harder to disconnect. The constant stimulation of emails, phone calls, news and images at your fingertips can be exhausting. It seems to have become second nature to most of us to always be looking at a device, leaving no real time to unplug and recharge, when in fact it’s when we’re completely unplugged that we’re at our best and do some of our best thinking. Consider how at ease you are when in the bath or shower, taking a walk or getting back to nature and embracing the elements – the pure, vitalising properties of land, sea, fire and sky. Allowing your home to become a sanctuary where you can reconnect with these elements and let yourself unplug and recharge can do wonders for your well-being.
