Happy New Year- and welcome to 2020! Now that we’re a couple of weeks in and we’ve had a chance to take stock and gather ourselves a little, we thought it was time to consider the new year, new decade- and exciting new beginnings!

This time of year is always so exhilarating- once the merriment and busyness of the festive season has subsided, and winter truly settles in amongst the leaves and branches. Long morning walks across crisp, shimmering fields and cosy afternoons snuggled inside with a steaming cup of tea- literally the best part of this month! Here are three reasons why we should all be embracing January in all it’s fresh glory.

The time for new beginnings is now

There is always something magical about the first page in a brand new diary, or an empty page in a pristine notepad. There is just so much potential about the start of a new year, so many plans yet to be made and so many goals to work towards with vigour and enthusiasm! It’s definitely a great time to let go of any stresses and burdens from 2019, be grateful for what they’ve taught us and enjoy a new beginning.

We’re starting the new year with some beautiful new cards in our stationery collection- we really hope you like them.

The perfect time to celebrate achievements

The start of a new year is also an ideal time to reflect back on everything that you’ve achieved and the goals you smashed in the process.

2019 was an amazing year and we have a lot to be thankful for.  Seeds sown last year with the creation of gorgeous hand care collection has let to us starting a brand new decade with a bang!  We’ve been shortlisted for the Gift of the Year Awards!

So, what did you achieve in 2019 – let’s celebrate with you!

The ideal time to set intentions

Since we’re talking about fresh starts in the new year- and we’re celebrating all that we achieved in the year we’re bidding farewell to, let’s talk resolutions. Rather, let’s take a more relaxed approach and think about intentions.

January is the best time to set some intentions for the months ahead, and personally we love the whole process of sitting down with a fresh notepad and pen and a head full of ideas. Set the scene- light a Pause candle, breathe in the relaxing scent of lavender and geranium and let the words flow.

Read back through the goals you set last year and use them to inspire the next twelve months of success. We can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store!
