Having a moment: Bees

Happy Earth Day, everyone! With summer just around the corner, nature prints can be found just about everywhere, and there is a particular focus on one creepy-crawlie: the bumble bee!

It’s no wonder that bees are the star of this season, with the little workers performing some amazing feats:

  • a bee will visit 100 flowers in one flight
  • a hive of bees flies the equivalent of three orbits around the earth to make 1kg of honey
  • bees pollinate 1/3 of our global food supply- without bees, there would be no us!

We love the bee at fabulous- to us it is an emblem of community, productivity and joy. The above Mantra“hard work brings sweet rewards”– summarises everything we love about bees and the values they embody. It then seems fitting that, with pay-day looming, we’ve spotted lots of bee-themed treats to splurge on after a month of hard work!
