A Rewarding Advent Calendar

Some of you may have heard of Belle & Boo. We’re huge fans at the shop as we love selling their gorgeous products but did you know this Christmas, Belle and Boo have partnered up with The Kids Company to make a difference to the lives of many children who might not have the best start. If you’d like to take part,  you could not only make yourself and child a unique advent calendar but 100% of sales go to the Kids Company. Kids Company is an award winning charity which provides practical, emotional and educational support to 36,000 inner city children in the UK. Christmas is particularly tough this time of year, many of whom won’t receive a proper meal, let alone a Christmas present, without your help.

This calendar is available in a downloadable PDF format and costs £5. You will get PDF kit to make 25 individually numbered and beautifully designed packets for you to fill full of treats, ready to open on the days leading up to Christmas Day. A fantastic craft project to get you in the festive mood. All you will need is some good quality paper to print out on, scissors, glue or tape and 25 mini pegs, available in most good craft shops.

Dandy Star Lights

New additions to the shop are these super cool light boxes by Dandy Star featuring the words ‘Magic’ and ‘Star’  I love the fresh, modern feel to these lights and they would make the perfect addition to any bedroom – whatever the style! There’s not many lights that can do that.

We’ve luckily managed to get a small number to sell on the website and they’re available to purchase HERE

If you have any questions or enquiries regarding these lights or anything else on the website or blog, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Compagnie de Provence

Compagnie de Provence are our latest addition to HK Collection. It’s a brand I have admired for a few years but for one reason or another, never got round to ordering…until now. After seeing them at Maison Objet in Paris, I was once again drawn in by the wonderful aromas, story behind the brand and packaging. I came away with some lovely little samples, which I’m still using now and I have to admit – that convinced me to finally take the plunge and make my first order.

Born out of the imagination of Pascal Bourelly and Philippe Boigeol, 2 friends from Marseille, the story of Compagnie de Provence begins in 1990 when they establish their trading company in the Panier, Marseille’s oldest district. The turning point for the company was in 1999 when Compagnie de Provence became the first brand to reinterpret the traditional cube of Marseille soap and launch its liquid version. Made from vegetable oils as its solid ancestor and crafted in a cauldron following authentic tradition.  Since then, thanks to their expertise and creativity, Compagnie de Provence has constantly been developing products dedicated to your well-being.
