As I announced in last week’s #GreenChat, I have recently been working on a website and I am so, so excited to announce that it has now launched!
Nectar & Bumble is a new online store stocking a range of products all based around bees. If you can’t tell from my blog design, I am a little obsessed with bees and you’ll often find me taking photos of them whenever I see any and buying anything that has a bee on it! I have a lot of favourite brands who sell bee related products and I thought what better way to bring them all together, than with my own online store, where I’ll be donating 10% of profits to bee charities too.
There’s three sections to the store; gifts, homeware and natural skincare. We have beautiful candles from Beefayre that have hand-drawn designs on the glass, honey-filled moisturisers from Therapi Honey Skincare and super cute bee print mugs from Creature Candy, just to name a few.
I have also been working on a collaboration with Mallow + White founder, Joanna, on a 100% organic multi-purpose balm that will be exclusive to Nectar & Bumble for now. We fell in love with a beautiful blend of apricot kernel, sunflower and camellia oil, with beeswax and lavender & rosemary essential oils. It’s perfect for cleansing the skin, as an overnight mask or simply anywhere that needs a bit of nourishing. I’m so, so excited about this balm and it’s been a pleasure working with Joanna on choosing the ingredients and collaborating together!
There will be a blog on the site where we’ll share post on how to save bees, identification of bees, photos of days out to National Trust gardens and we also stock Seedball Bee Mix so you can play a part in helping to save the bees too by creating a bee-friendly haven for bees in your gardens!
We’ll also be stocking a few handmade items including bee print make-up bags, lavender filled bags and last but certainly not least are prints and notebooks designed by my sister, Mia Felce. We both came up with a few design ideas and Mia got drawing, then put them onto the computer to digitally alter them into prints. There are three different designs to choose from and these will be launching in a few weeks time!
We will be donating 10% of our profits to bee charities and conservations in order to help save the bees and we hope it encourages others to take an interest too! We’ll be gradually expanding the ranges over the next few months, introducing more stock as we go along!
I hope you all love the website. If you would like to shop, I have a 10% discount for you “ABT10” valid until midnight 8th June.
