HELLO, SPRING. IT’S BEEN A WHILE, HASN’T IT?
I (like many of you city-dwellers) have been officially OVER winter for about 4 months now. The Polar Vortex stayed longer than its welcome, and you would have sworn I was slightly goth being that all I ever wore was black. Homeless beanies were the norm and I don’t remember the last time I actually wore heels.
Ahh, but when the seasons change, so do you.
HERE ARE FIVE WAYS TO HELP WELCOME EVERY BIT OF THE SPRING SEASON.
1. SPRING CLEANING.
I am FINALLY moved out of my apartment. The lease is officially DONE, and I feel as free as a bird. I threw out 80% of my furniture, trinkets and random unnecessary goodies.
2. CLEAN EATING.
After weeks of relying on take-out while sitting on packaging supplies, I was excited to get to the grocery store to pick up some fresh produce. Does anyone else misplace their willpower during the winter?
3. BRIGHTER BEAUTY.
Warmer weather means glowing skin, brighter lips and lots of color.
4. MORE EXPLORING
Spring may just be the perfect season to travel since flights are cheaper and you’re more likely to avoid summer crowds. I’m heading to Iceland, Paris, then all throughout Italy: Pisa, Cinque Terre, Rome and Florence in TWO WEEKS. The weather will be easy and breezy, and I’m taking advantage of that before it gets too hot and sticky outside.
5. SWEETER SCENTS.
Thanks to the Herbal Essences team, I’m smelling like fresh fruit and flowers. I got a chance to try out the brand new bodywash line – my two favorites? See below.
wearing // MAC (SATIN) Rebel lipstick
This scent may just be the perfect hybrid of fruit and flowers. It’s light, sweet and completely feminine without being overbearing. I don’t like to smell like a bottle of perfume after I get out of the shower, and this is delectable yet subtle enough for everyday use.
wearing // MAC (SHEEN SUPREME) Full Speed lipstick
I have always been addicted to citrus flavors and scents. For some reason to me, they ALWAYS SMELL CLEAN. I don’t like bodywash to have TOO STRONG of a scent because I always think it’ll work against perfume. Happy to say that this is officially my new everyday bodywash. It’s crisp and perfect for the spring season.
SO, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU TRY ?
