I am so happy that it's Spring Time! Summer is just around the corner and there is no better time to start shopping for all your summer time essentials. Happy Spring!
1. Favourite spring nail polish?
I actually have two this year. I am loving Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in shade Pink Punch 430, and Barry M's Aquarium Collection Nail Paint in shade Mediterranean 452. Barry M's sunset nail polishes are also amazing. I just love Barry M for nails!
2. What is your must-have lip colour this spring?
The colour which is going on my lips all spring this year is a lipstick by L'Oreal Paris in Colour Riche Matte, in shade Mon Jules (430). I mentioned this in my February Favourites if you would like to go and check it out more.
3. Show us your favourite spring dress?
My friend Lozzie actually bought me this ASOS Dipped Hem Skater Dress a little while ago and I haven't worn it yet as I want to wait for the perfect day or time to wear it, and also because it was a little tight on me around my boobs area so I wanted to see once I'd lost some weight if it fitted me and thankfully it does! I have a lot of events, days out, birthdays and parties coming up over the summer already planned so I'm sure I will find a time and place to wear this beautiful dress. Thank you again to my wonderful amazing friend for buying me it! The picture really does not do it justice.
4. What's your favourite flower?
I love flowers but I love sunflowers, pink roses and orchids the most. I know a lot of people say lilies but I actually don't like lilly's at all. But in spring my favourite flowers are daffodils as they remind me of growing up and seeing them grow in my grandparents garden, I knew Easter was coming when they blossomed, and now I have some growing in my garden which I love.
5. Favourite spring scarf/accessory?
It sounds so cheesy but since getting married the only accessory (other than my every day bag) has been my wedding ring. Most of my accessories are actually packed up in bags and boxes for when we move home.
6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)
I'm loving that since Urban Decay brought out their Naked palettes everyone seems to be doing natural looking make up routines or wearing very little make up. Everyone's inner natural beauty is coming out, and its wonderful.
7. Favourite spring candle?
Right now all of my candles are packed and the only one I have out is by Yankee Candles in the scent 'Fresh Cut Roses' with natural extracts, which smells beautiful and like orchids.
8. Favourite body spray/perfume for spring?
My Chanel 'No 5' perfume is one I've been wearing a lot recently, this and my Vera Wang 'Princess'.
9. What is spring like where you live?
Spring is fresh new flowers coming into bloom, animals coming out of hibernation so you hear the birds singing and see a lot more wild life where I live as it's right by a beautiful park.
10. What's your favourite thing about spring?
The sunshine, the smell and the sound of the birds singing. I think the sunshine is actually my favourite thing about spring though, the sunshine just puts me in a good mood and makes everything seem wonderful.
11. Are you a spring cleaner?
I am very much so, and even more so since we have moved home earlier this year so we have been doing a lot of sorting out.
12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
I have no holidays coming up, but I do have a lot of plans. You will hear about them all coming up on my social media accounts so make sure you're following me to keep updated.
