There's plenty of things to be upbeat about right now. For starters, spring has sprung. Despite the less than encouraging weather up until recently, if you look closely there's flower buds opening up, baby lambs being born and the evenings are looking decidedly more cheery now it's not dark at 4pm.
Other reasons to be cheerful? The woo spring sale is here. From activewear to beauty, streetwear to homeware, there's hundreds of curated products on offer.
Not sure where to start? No problem. The editors at woo have already decided what they're going to be purchasing from the sale. Ahead, they share their picks.

Wake up babes, spring/summer 'fits are basically here. Now the clocks have gone back and we’re expecting longer, brighter days, rest assured I will pretty much be spending the entirety of the next six months with a pair of sunglasses glued to my head. I’m finally ready to fight off those winter blues, and the shady biggie smalls in pink are my new weapon of choice.

A really nice Armani blazer, in a unique yet versatile colour, for £55. You simply cannot go wrong: dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the events you want to dress up for but don’t want to ruin your favourite things during. It’s pre-loved too, the planet will thank you.
the coffee alternative
Since I’ve stopped drinking caffeine, this has become a go-to. There’s four types of mushrooms in there which give a variety of nutrients and other benefits along with ashwagandha. A health girlie yes, but mainly I drink this because it helps me sleep in the evening yet keeps me calm and focussed in the morning. I stir it into hot water and add fresh ginger and honey, you could also add some to a smoothie. Coffee, I love you, but we just weren’t right for each other.

the sex toy
Did you know that the G-spot is actually part of the clitoral network and not a separate part of your anatomy? Yep, the visible, pea-sized clit glans is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s actually wishbone-shaped, and divides into two roots or 'crura' of about four inches long each. Stimulating that textured patch of flesh inside the vagina (which we know as the G-spot) in turn stimulates non-visible areas of the clit. Wow, vaginas really are amazing. Now that anatomy lesson is out the way, it’s time to celebrate. This G-spot dildo from So Divine helps you do just this - the waterproof, seven inches of silicone has a bulbous tip for G-spot stimulation as well as a tapered end for more precise, targeted vibrations.
the sex toy bundle
Sex toy beginner? Don’t know where to begin with vibes? Let this So Divine bundle stock up your bedside table with some gorgeous, buzzy treats. Coming complete with a clit sucker, mini wand, dildo, cock ring, rabbit vibe and lube it has everything you need to start exploring - with or without a partner.

the face oil
As the days become more radiant, update your skincare routine to match. This luxurious blend of rosehip and jojoba will make you feel refreshed while balancing and hydrating your skin to give it a healthy, natural glow.

bave tobacco & vanilla bath soak
There’s a top-tier perfume out there combining tobacco and vanilla that shall not be named but it’s delicious and this bath soak is hitting the same scent notes at a far more accessible price point. Luxuriating in a perfume is as impossible a prospect as bathing in gold - way too pricey and stressful, who wants to feel like their bath is costing that much? So I reckon this would be a far chiller way of harnessing the scent and actually unwinding.
the sleep aid
Between losing myself in reels of people making hideous food and reels of other people making questionable beauty decisions, my screen time is up and my sleep time is seriously lacking and I could do with a neat way of getting some shut-eye on the better side of midnight. These should do the trick!
Jess Commons, Head of Editorial
the running hoodie
I can’t put it off any longer, spring has sprung and there’s no more excuses to avoid running outside that make sense. It’s still a bit chilly though so this adidas running hoodie (WITH pockets) is the perfect buy.
