I ❤ Spring! I really do! I absolutely adore this kind of tag and definitely meant to do it as soon as I saw it. This being me, time ran away and it's now May… How did that happen?! If I had the time to post more than the three times a week I aim for I'd be so happy. I also enjoy tags because you get to know a little bit more about that person and their likes and life 🙂
1) What is your favourite spring nail colour?
|I do have a photo with this on my nails, it just wasn’t a very good photo. There are loads of swatches on google images though 🙂|
2) What is your must-have lip colour this spring?
|Not the best photograph. I intend to review this soon and will hopefully have better photos then 🙂|
Maybelline’s Colour Sensational Lipstick in 910 Shocking Coral. I am head over heels in love with this lipstick shade. It might be a bit more summery than springy but I think it’s perfect for injecting some colour into the not always lovely spring weather!
3) Show us your favourite spring dress!
This one! Weather during the spring is always a little unpredictable. So I like to wear dresses I can easily add and remove layers from. This dress is perfect for that, it’s still awesome with black opaque tights and adding a whole load of jumpers on top just adds to the cuteness. Perfect. It was from H&M last year but I am sure there are similar dresses around!
4) What is your favourite flower?
Probably a peony, though I have a special place in my heart for tulips for a variety of reasons. To be honest though, I just adore flowers. I love having them in vases, in pots and even fake ones.
5) Favourite spring scarf/accessory.
|Both of these are from H&M, though in the online sale – so if you want them move quickly!|
These earrings and bracelets may also be more summery than for spring but you know, I’m wearing them non-stop now. They are pretty bright and I’ve had a few interesting comments about how bright the earrings are haha. They make me happy though and that’s all that matters!
6) What spring trends are you most excited about this year?
I am so excited for the whole coral and cobalt for spring/summer makeup. Tbh, I barely attempt to keep my wardrobe fashionable, I wear the clothes I enjoy wearing however I am enjoying the bright trousers trend. Obviously florals and prints appeal to my love of bright colours 🙂 and I am enjoying a bit of neon.
7) Favourite spring candle?
The Muji Hinoki Wood candle, it smells a little like expensive furniture polish, it has that woody, beeswaxy, cedar scent. It makes my room smell clean and fresh and really helps uplift my mood. As soon as I finish this one I will be rushing to buy a new one. I also fancy a cucumber scented candle/room spray. I feel that would be perfect for a clean spring scent.
8) Favourite body spray/perfume for spring?
|How is this almost all gone?!|
This has to be Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. This is one my mum bought, didn’t like and passed on to me. I wasn’t sure about it to start with but I persevered because I’m like that and actually fell a little in love. I don’t like it all year round and even find it offensive in winter. However, in spring, it is citrus bomb to perfection.
9) What is spring like where you live?
That really depends on the day! This year it has been ridiculously cold and has only just started to get nice and is now practically summery though still freezing at night! Usually it is relatively wet, with cool through to warm days. There are some gloriously sunny days, a week where it feels like a mini heat wave and everyone gets sunburnt. Unpredictable, take an umbrella and layers.
10) What is your favourite thing about spring?
I love the longer days! Waking up and there being sunlight and having supper whilst it is still light outside. That first day when it is warm enough to open the back door a crack whilst eating breakfast and breathe in the first breath of cool dew filled air. I adore spring, it’s when I start to feel alive again. I feel I should make my New Years resolutions on the 1st May, it would be more appropriate and possible for me.
11) Are you a spring cleaner?
To an extent, yes. With the increased levels of energy I feel in spring I do get the enthusiasm to go and de-clutter and have a thorough clean. I don’t necessarily spend a weekend and go round each room cleaning but I do reassess the state of my space and my life.
12) Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
I missed the boat a little with this question as my ‘spring break’ has been and gone. Working in a school, I get the Easter holiday, I spent half of mine in Manchester visiting the man I love, then the other half back home tidying my life up. Perhaps more excitingly I am in the middle of organising a trip with my mum to Prague and Budapest in the summer! Both are cities I have wanted to visit for a fair while so I am looking forward to exploring, I am less looking forward to quite how hot it will be there at that time of year!
