#TheEveryDaySpruce: July theme announcement

In my last #TheEverydaySpruce post I mentioned opening the project up to get more of you involved. And now the time has come and Sarah-Lou and I are so excited to welcome you onboard! At the start of each month we’ll announce a general theme for the coming month (on our blogs and over on IG) and invite you to join in by writing a blog post or posting an image on Instagram to share your great sprucing ideas around the theme using the hashtag #TheEverydaySpruce. If you want to be added to our mailing list so that you don’t miss the theme announcement each month, then please leave a comment below or drop me an email.

July is off to a brilliant start with this gorgeous heatwave, and it’s perfect for our theme this month, which is… ‘Get Set For Summer’. From ideas on how to survive the school holidays, to how to pack the perfect picnic, to how to bring summer indoors, to a great tutorial for a must-have beach-bag – we want to know your best summer tips. We’ll be publishing our blog posts the week of the 13 July, so feel free to join us then (or anytime before the end of July).


Here’s a little reminder of what #TheEverydaySpruce project is all about..

‘To spruce’ in its most basic definition means to make neat… by association, it can also be used to describe the acts of fixing up, organising and beautifying. Simplify, clarify, beautify.

We’re using the term to describe a more general idea of shaking things out and hitting refresh. We’ll be sharing easy and useful tips, projects and ideas that we hope will inspire and encourage you to revitalise things a little, both around your home and in your daily routines. This isn’t about making things perfect, but about focusing on simple things that can help to make the everyday just a little bit easier, and, perhaps, more beautiful for you, too.

    I have just finished a blog about getting your bathroom summer ready! Must be something in the air! 😀 Also those candles look amazing, will definitely have to try them.

    Those candles look great, will have to start looking out for some tins. I really want to take part – will do my best to get organised.
