The mornings are lighter, the evenings are longer, and you haven’t had to put the electric blanket on in weeks. Yep, spring is definitely here.
Okay, okay, we’re not quite ready to get our legs out just yet. But festival season will be here before you know it, and we’ll all be breaking out our swimsuits and rushing to the nearest beach in no time.
However, if like us you’ve not entirely stuck to your New Year’s resolutions since the second week of January, and instead welcomed the harsh winter with creamy hot chocolates and hearty stews, it might be time to give yourself a bit of a spring clean as well as your home and closets.
We’ve put together a handy list of essential products that will help you shake off the winter and get ship-shape for spring.
10,000 Salads recipe book
Spring is the perfect time of year to start enjoying healthy salads and as the old saying goes, getting fit starts in the kitchen. This flipbook from Susanna Tee serves up a ton of ideas to help prevent yourself getting bored by the same old leafy salads. Broken up into three sections - salad types, dressings and toppings - you can create thousands of delicious salad combinations to help you stay inspired.
Side Note: We've found that preparation is the key (well, one of them) to sticking to that healthy eating programme. and we've got some great products to help store those carefully prepped meals.
With all those salad recipes, you’ll need something suitable to store them in. That’s where the Box Appetit Lunch Box comes in. The innovative design includes a lockable transparent lid (because no one likes a soggy salad), a sauce pot for your favourite dressings, and an inner-dish that’s suitable for microwaves. So now there’s no excuse not to take a salad to work. A Little Freckle is a big fan, and we are too.
We all know that drinking plenty of water (8 to 10 glasses, to be precise) is important for staying healthy, but how many of us actually do it? Well, the WaterBobble Sport just made staying hydrated a whole lot easier. With an electro-positive carbon filter, it removes chlorine and organic contaminants from tap water, which means you can enjoy clean, great tasting water wherever, whenever. It's also got "Sport" in the name - so it's got to be good for you, right?
Another way to stay nice and healthy is to make sure that you’re getting all the right vitamins. And what better way to store your supplements than with this funky Pill Box?
Donkey Milk Soap
It’s important to look after the outside as well as the inside, so we recommend Donkey Milk Soap. Packed full of vitamins, anti-bacterial agents and special verbena extract, it has rich properties that promote cell proliferation and replacement, making it the ideal anti-wrinkle moisturiser. Even Cleopatra swore by it, bathing in asses’ milk as part of her daily beauty regime.
