In our house we seriously heart Belle & Boo. Miss L has the wall stickers and bedding, likening herself and beloved Flopsy to the eponymous little girl with bunny. So I’m definitely happy to hear about their new adult ‘Makes Everything Better’ range.
Hand-crafted and ethical, the collection covers simple things which make us feel better, from best friends to cups of tea. All about the little bits of life adding up to happiness, I love the thought behind this new range.
You’ll find everything from aprons to cushions, notelets to tea towels, with signature Belle & Boo detail. I particularly like the hand pressed cards with sweet slogans such as “Tea Makes Everything Better”, “Cookies Makes Everything Better” and “Sewing Makes Everything Better”. Always a bit of a stationery fiend, I’ll find any excuse to send my friends notes; it just feels like a nice thing to do.
Capturing a sense of calm nostalgia, the children’s range simplifies life and takes you away from the more stressful parts of the day. Now as an adult we can grab a slice of this ethos too, sharing that feeling with friends or at home. Screen printed in Lancashire, the tea towels definitely add a touch of lovely style and simplicity.
The monochrome finish on the ethical cards and the natural cotton panama of the homeware bits are a more grown-up take on the original range. But, they still transport you to that feeling of childlike simplicity. Which I guess is exactly the idea of the “Makes Everything Better” design. Comforting and cute, the range carries on from all the gorgeous Belle & Boo goodies already on offer.
Belle & Boo are right, even on the worst days, best friends and tea do make everything better. And a big fat slice of cake as well.
