I can't believe it is April already! April has got to be my hands down favorite month. I love the longer days, more sunlight, no snow, capris, bright colors, and flowers. There is so much that I love about the beginning of Spring, and that is why I am doing the I ♥ Spring Tag!
Favorite Spring Nail Polish: I couldn't pick just one for this questions, but in general I love mints, pinks and pastels. My favorites are Essie's Turquoise & Caicos and Splash of Grenadine and Sephora by OPI's Arm Candy.
What is your must have lip-color this Spring? I love anything bright and fun. I normally stick to bright pinks or go for nudes when I want to make my eyes bright and colorful. My top lip colors would be Maybelline's Color Whisper in Pink Possibilities, Estee Lauder's Pure Color in Candy and Covergirl's Jumbo Gloss Balm in Watermelon.
Show us your favorite Spring Dress: Unfortunately because of the still cold Midwest temperatures, my Spring dresses are still packed up with all my other summer clothes, waiting for warmer weather to lure them out. I will say though, that for Spring I love high-low dresses. My favorite is a blue and purple thin striped high-low dress I bought from Target. I love pairing it with some of my brown wedges!
What's your favorite flower? I love tulips! They always remind me of Easter and Spring and warmer weather. My favorites are definitely the bright yellow ones.
Favorite Spring scarf or accessory? My favorite scarf is my pink and white striped infinity scarf. I love it because it is still a little bit thick, which is perfect because it's always still a little bit chilly where I live in early Spring. I love the bright pink, it really adds a pop of color to any outfit.
What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? I don't know that I have a specific trend in mind. I just really enjoy the bright colors: bright lips, bright nails, bright clothes. I think it is so refreshing from the neutrals and dark colors from winter.
Favorite spring candle? My favorite spring candle is definitely the Bath and Body Works Tiki Beach candle. The candle is described as having "a scent as warm as sun-rays- a luxurious blend of toasted coconut, vanilla musk, orchids and resort glamour." I grew up very close to the beach and would go quit often, so for me, this candle definitely reminds me of lazy afternoons on the beach.
Favorite body spray/perfume for spring? My favorite body spray would be Victoria Secret's Pure Daydream, which is described as having pearl orchid and pink currant. My favorite perfume would be my long time favorite, DKNY Be Delicious. I love this perfume! It smells just like green apples and I love it for Spring.
What is spring like where you live? Short. Honestly, living in the upper Midwest, our Spring seems very short. Right now it supposedly feels like 43 degrees. Also, living in the city, it can look mildly unappealing with all the melting snow and with the melting snow comes mud and beer bottles, and any other trash that's been stuck under the snow for months. Overall though, Spring is a welcome change from winter!
What's your favorite thing about spring? Warmer weather, no huge winter coats, bright colors, flowers, sunshine.
Are you a spring cleaner? Not really, I normally just clean whenever I feel my apartment needs it. Also, the apartment is pretty small, so it relatively easy to keep it clean all the time. I'll probably do a little dusting and clean out my closet when I bring out my Spring/Summer clothes.
Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation? I just had my Spring Break a couple weeks ago. I went home to Virginia Beach which was a nice change. Now I'm just looking forward to my next break when the semester is over.
