The word “equinox” is derived from Latin and means “equal night”. On the day of an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal length all over the world.... Read More

How to make the most of long nights and short days

Leaves glisten underneath a blanket of frost, mist glides across mossy moors and a golden autumnal morning sun rises behind silhouettes of ponies in their winter coats, grazing across copper coloured landscapes. Hedgehogs gather essentials such as dry leaves, grass and bracken to begin creating their winter nests and little mice forage for food and shelter before burrowing into the ground to rest. Inside cottages freshly baked rolls are in the oven, filling the home with warming delicious aromas and cashmere jumpers are pulled on for ultimate softness and comfort,... Read More

Bohemian Décor Ideas For Your Home

The free-spirit in us sometimes admires the campervan parked up along the coastal clifftop, dreaming of jet-setting off and waking up to a breath-taking landscape, abundant in fresh air and views of the ocean. However, for many of us, this vision of living adventurously simply becomes something of a daydream and instead, infusing our homes with hints of bohemian décor, culture and life embraces a care-free and simplistic environment, to enjoy consistently at home. The innovative bohemian décor trend is filling our homes with authenticity, bringing the rooms to life... Read More

A “Garden Buffet” To Feed The Pollinators

Pollinators visit flowers and harvest the pollen and nectar, transferring them from plant to plant and fertilising them. This plays a vital role in the reproduction of flowers and agriculture. This includes everyday foods such as fruit, nuts, beans and coffee (yes, your coffee) Let’s talk about the pollinators According to “Friends of the earth” the pollinators need 3 things to thrive – food, shelter and water (just like us humans!) “Bees forage from flowers that are rich in nectar and pollen. The nectar contains the sugar they need for... Read More
