"Talent, Pride and Determination"















My ParalympicsGB official scarf from Next arrived this morning, courtesy of the Next Blogger Network (Thank you!). It arrived in a cute white box with a ribbon tied around it. When I opened my parcel I found the Next ParalympicsGB scarf and a Next catalogue of all their TeamGB inspired merchandise. My favourite pages were all their home accessories as I'm currently obsessed with decorating my home with little bits and pieces, and they have the cutest cushions and tea sets! Then I got to the scarf. It was packet in it's original shop wrapping, the hand painted lion on the scarf is a visual interpretation of a quote that describes the determination, courage and talent of the Great British Athletes. There are 60 hands printed on the bottom of the scarf which symbolise the athletes' sixty million supporters. My favourite is the quote on the left hand corner of the scarf which says "Talent, Pride and Determination". The quote could be adapted by anyone and give them inspiration to get on with their own daily challenges, just as the Paralympic Athletes conquer the challenges they face.
The very important thing about this scarf is the support you will be giving to the British Athletes as ALL profits from the sale of the scarf will be donated to them. So, above I've showed you just a couple of ways how you can wear your scarf with pride and support the athletes this year on their home ground! My favourite is tying it around your bag in the shape of a fluffy bow, that way on hot days you will always be prepared for a chilly breeze! I have also used it as a summer turban, really easy to start at the front of you head and wrap it around with a knot. You can also wear it a la Paris tied around you neck with loose ends, or bow it up and make a fluffy bow around your neck.
How would you wear your scarf?

    1. Thank you! I tried to tie it up as a headband so there's a little bow at the front but haven't mastered that yet!
