Jess & The Bee

Well, it has been a long time since I’ve posted on my blog. So many things have taken up my time lately, and more and more I found myself distanced from the blogger I felt I had to be to be ‘good at it’.

I’ve rebranded my blog to reflect that it’s a space just for me, though if anyone is interested in my ramblings, then they are welcome too. So, I hear you ask, Why Jess & The Bee?

Well, bees are just cool. They’re our biggest pollinators, symbols of hard working across the globe, and are the official mascot of the city I live&work in, Manchester.

I moved into my home in August last year, too late to do the garden for summer, but this year I got my sleeves rolled up, planted a load of bee-friendly plants and I was gifted with the daily presence of bees of many species from thereon in.

I’ve seen (but never managed to photograph) honeybees, Carder bees, tree bumblebees, Early bumblebees, and of course the recognizable white-tailed bumblebee.

it’s not just because of bees (honestly).

I didn’t just want to blog jewellery or fashion or beauty. I want to blog about whatever makes me happy. So it seemed only right that my new blog reflected something that does just that.

looking forward to posting more soon.

  1. I like bees too – my name actually means honeybee in Greek so I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for them. I changed my blog last year actually for the same reasons and have been much happier that way! Loooking forward to reading more of your posts.
