5 ways you can spark positive change​

In times of great uncertainty, it’s even important to go the extra mile for yourself and others. To bring a little brightness to the day or make a difference. 

We asked our team some of the things they do – or have had done for them – that make them feel like they’re sparking a positive change.

message a friend 

“A few weeks ago I received a message out of the blue from a friend telling me how much she appreciated me. It was like a modern-day love letter and it made me feel so grateful for the people in my life.”

Let your girls and guys know how much they mean to you with a simple message. We’ve even started some for you!

I appreciate you because …
I’ll never forget that time we …
Thank you for always …


learn something new

“I recently taught myself how to do macrame – it’s so relaxing and you get some cool pieces afterwards. It made me appreciate all of the things my Gran knitted me so much more, the time those ‘ugly’ jumpers must have taken …”

Learning something new is not only fun (and educational, obviously), but it can also give you a new appreciation and outlook on life.

Grab your besties and pick up a new book, shop for some new crafts, listen to a new podcast or sign up for an online course!


recycle used accessories

“Like most of us, I have a lot of accessories…while most are used season after season to update my look, there’s been times I don’t want them (or can’t fit them in my collection) anymore. I’ve started to donate these pieces,  it made me feel good knowing I’d given the accessory a new life and made a conscious choice!”

You can pop into your local Accessorize to donate your used accessories and will send them to New Life


buy some plants

“I became a new plant mum during lockdown and bringing nature inside has made a massive difference to A) the look of my room and B) how I feel –  indoor plants have proven health benefits  – plus it’s satisfying keeping them alive!” 

Studies have shown plants can boost mood, productivity, concentration and creativity – all of which are so important now that our homes have become our offices. Best get shopping.


send a surprise gift to someone

“The doorbell went one day and the postie handed me a parcel I wasn’t expecting (I originally thought I’d ordered it in my last shopping spree and forgotten…) But it was a gift from my bestie. It brightened my mood for the rest of the day and was nice knowing she’d seen something and thought of me.”

Give your friends or family some excitement and send them a special gift. The more personal and thoughtful, the better – think a zodiac necklace or initial jewellery. Plus, science has actually proven we get great pleasure from giving, and we feel even happier when spending money on others. Win-win!

Top 5 New Normal Accessories You Need

Phone, keys…face covering and anti-bac. Our ‘can’t leave the house without’ list has grown in light of current circumstances – and there are many new normal accessories that can make your new every day easy and stylish.


micro bags

Whether you wear it alone or pair with your other bags, a micro bag is as fashionable as it is practical. It’s also the perfect home for your face coverings and anti-bac, so you can just grab and go.


drink bottle

Whether you’re going to the hairdressers (finally) or getting a much-needed mani (yay) it’s important to take your own drink, so you may as well do it in a cool and eco-conscious way!



The number one thing we’re starting to learn is the less you can touch, the better. As most stores go cashless, it’s only necessary to have your cards with you – ideally easily accessible. 


comfy shoes

While comfort has always been important – yay for sports luxe – it’s even more necessary now as many of us opt for longer walks opposed to public transport. Put your best foot forward in comfortable sneakers and flip flops.


face coverings 

We’ve created a range of face coverings to keep you safe and stylish. Pick a pattern or colour that expresses your personality – matching accessories optional!


Wear it right 

Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser every time you put the face covering, snood or gloves on or off. Store them in a plastic bag until you wash them.


Use the ear loop ties to put the face covering on and off and avoid touching your face. Refrain from adjusting your mask once it’s on.


Remove safely by grabbing the glove at the wrist, avoiding touching your bare skin. Peel it away from the body and turn inside out. Remove the second glove by putting your fingers inside the glove at the wrist and peel away, turning it inside out.
