The Handmade Kew 2016


Following last year’s success as the Handmade event was a sell-out, this year, in Britain it will return to Kew Gardens for the second edition of the Handmade at Kew. Here at the Amazing Blog we love to explore and celebrate Britain for its contemporary arts and crafts and this event will definitely be in our list to go.

This is an international modern craft’s event from the 6th to 9th October, this event offers visitors the opportunity to meet and buy from over 200 designers and makers in the arts and crafts industry. This handmade event has a variety of ceramics, jewellery, fashion and textiles, glass, paper, furniture, metalwork, sculpture and interior accessories.  

Over several days, the picturesque gardens at Kew will give the public a chance to explore the exceptional innovative British and international craftsmanship for both fashion and interiors. This is an amazing experience for the public to understand the culture and collect unique, valuable products and to invest in collections.

The day is full of beautiful views as you are surrounded by an elegant pavilion next to Kew Palace, you can enjoy the gardens and crafts to the full. It’s truly an exceptional day and a really great shopping experience for a family outing. It gives you the opportunity to browse, speak to the maker directly and also listen to the production of the exquisite work of some the world’s most talented craftspeople, also get inspiration and learn facts about this impressive industry. It is way more than a shopping day out.

If you would like to enjoy a great day at The Handmade Kew 2016, tickets are available to purchase here for £16.00 including the full entry to the Kew Gardens.

Here at The Amazing Blog, one of our key essentials to have all year round is a product that will keep your wardrobe smelling freshly scented 24/7.  Catherine Robinson has released a refresher spray exclusively to her brand called Grace; this product is a signature scent to Catherine.

Catherine Robinson specialises in designing luxurious cashmere clothing and accessories with the finest cashmere made in Mongolia. Known for her luxury products and elegant brand, Catherine released a cashmere care mist that will keep your soft knitted wear protected and refreshed by its beautiful fruity scent. The fragrance is infused with kumquat, grapefruit and bergamot flower. This fruity combination will complement your clothes really well.  

The refresher spray is a cashmere care mist, however we tried on other items off clothing and it still complemented the clothing well as it has multiple purposes and smells delicious on. It is recommended to use this product approximately at an angle so you do not soak the garment, and wait a few minutes before storing the item in your wardrobe, or before you wear it so it can dry properly.

Grapefruit Blend Body Scrub - Bean Burst

At The Amazing Blog we love to find solutions to treat our skin the way it deserves to be treated. The natural Blend Body Scrub created by Bean Burst will make such a difference to your skin that you’ll be proud of it.

Bean Burst is on a mission, working to create natural remedies to clear, balance and awaken the skin with 100% natural products. The range of Blend Body Scrubs includes 3 different aromas: Grapefruit, Peppermint and Orange. We tried the Grapefruit Blend which works to eradicate cellulite, stretch marks, acne, scarring and dry skin, and we loved the strong scent. Use the scrub in circular motions and once rubbed into the skin leave for 5 to 10 minutes allowing the Grapefruit Blend to clear any congested skin, whilst the fragrances uplift your senses and liberate you from stress. Throughout the range you can find a product to match your skin type to help any niggling skin concerns which do not contain any parabens, parfums or mineral oils. The ingredients are certified high quality and natural including: Robusta coffee, antioxidants coming from marula oil, pink Himalayan salt which is the purest in the world, vitamins, and virgin coconut oil. The product combines these natural powerhouses to form anti-ageing, exfoliating and hydrating benefits.

We loved it, now it is your turn to try it and give your skin some love thanks to Bean Burst’s Grapefruit Blend Body Scrub available here for £ 15.
