Happy New Year!!! So we’ve almost made it through the 2nd week of 2018. How are we all feeling? Getting good vibes for the year ahead or still trying to get in to the swing of things after the extended break? No rest for the wicked in retail and we’re full steam ahead making plans, seeking new artists, planning new exhibitions and getting ready for what will hopefully be an awesome 2018. We hope you’ve all got lots of exciting plans for your year. It can sometimes be a little daunting, a whole fresh year ahead and what should you do with it? We’ve collated some of our favourite pieces that are getting us inspired for 2018 and we hope they’ll inspire you too.
We love the idea of heading off on a Campervan Adventure when the nice weather shows its face. These cute enamel pins by Hello Sunshine remind us to keep the dream alive and if like Jo herself you’ve got Campervan Dreams of your own then these can be the stepping stone to getting there. Project Campervan for 2018? New Year, New You are common words you’ll hear over the next few months. We love these fun ‘Exercise’ Books by Donna Wilson. A Great Way to motivate you to get out there and stay healthy. They could be Health Journals or just use them as a kick up the butt when you sit procrastinating for too long at work…… If you’re London based, they have great little maps on the reverse on where you can get outside and get your exercise on. 🙂
Oh the places you could go……. We love a bit of Dr Seuss and this print by Barry Bulsara is telling it straight. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. Great for Big Kids and Small Kids alike.
To Do Lists, we all love to make them when the year begins but how many of us manage to keep them up? When they’re as cute as these Gemma Correll x Ohh Deer ones then we’re sure you might be able to keep to your list making. Easy Peel List Block so once the first list is down you can keep going. Who doesn’t love a list that ends in Taking a Nap?
It’s important to take some time for yourself and refresh. Why not grab your favourite mug…….It could be this rather Zen Like Yoga Rabbits one by Ham and pop the kettle on, Green Tea, Builders Tea whatever takes your fancy, just take a moment to relax and have a moment of calm on a daily basis.
Whatever this year holds for you, make sure you take that little bit more time for yourself and Do What Makes You Happy.
