I Heart Spring Tag

Spring is finally here and now the countdown for summer begins!  After what feels like a super long winter, it's nice to have pops of colour everywhere, along with flowers and warm weather.  The weather is perfect, you can actually go outside because it's not freezing anymore, and it's not super-duper hot so that you have to stay indoors.  Also I love that in spring we can welcome more colour into our outfits and wear more pastels.  Oh and lets not forget that the days get longer so we can spend more time out in the sunshine!

Favorite spring nail polish?

I love the colour of this Tanya Burr nail vanish in Pick n' Mix.  It's a a fun pastel pink spring colour.  I would wear this a lot more if it wasn't so sheer.  Unfortunately, as it is so sheer, I have to do several coats before the colour actually shows as much as it's supposed to.

Must have lip color this spring?

A must have lip colour this spring is the  NYX Professional Make-Up - Soft Matte Lip Cream. 

These liquid lipsticks are amazing and they are super pigmented.  I would really love to get more of these, but currently the one in the shade 'Milan' is my favourite for spring.

Favorite spring dress?

My favourite spring dress is this gorgeous one I bought from Yumi after Christmas.

I love the way it comes in at the waist and flares out below that.  I also love that you can tie it at the back.

Favorite flower?

I love peonies and roses.  They are both so pretty!

Favorite spring accessory?

This gorgeous faux leather backpack I was gifted.  

I love it so much and I always have it with me, wherever I go.  I think it adds so much more to an outfit and makes everything go together.

I love how stylish and sleek it looks, I also love the fact that it's more of a mini backpack but not too small, as I really didn't want to have to carry around a big bulky backpack and I didn't want one SO small that I couldn't actually fit anything in.  I would highly recommend getting one!

What spring trends are you most excited for this year (fashion and makeup)?

I'm so excited about the off the-shoulder and cold shoulder trend!  I am also obsessed with bell sleeves.  I feel like spring is going to be a good season for fashion and I'm so excited.  I'm also so glad that the big dark eyebrows are going!  I've had enough of it and can't wait for them to go!  The spring and the rest of 2017 is going to be all about natural eyebrows and eyelashes, just an overall more natural look.

Favorite spring candle?

My favourite spring candle is definitely the Nectarine Blossom & Honey Candle by Jo Malone. It is such a spring smelling candle.  I absolutely love it.  I love all Jo Malone candles but this one definitely has to be one of my favourites.

Favorite body spray or perfume for spring?

My favourite perfume/spray is the CHANEL COCO MADEMOISELLE Eau De Parfum Spray.  It's a classic and I love it.  It smells amazing and will always be my go to.

What is spring like where you live?

Spring where I live is good.  The weather is getting really warm already and I'm so happy about it.  We didn't have any snow this winter so there are no puddles.  I hope it continues to get warmer and warmer.

Are you a spring cleaner?

Yes!  I always seem to have more energy in the spring, so I guess I'm a spring cleaner.

Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?

No plans other than spending lots of time with family, going to the park a lot, celebrating my brothers birthday which happens to be the same day as Easter and eating tons of chocolate!

I'm not exactly sure who has and hasn't done this tag so you can consider yourself tagged if you want to do it. I will be tagging Alex from Heartful Living, Samantha from Artful Samantha and Imogen from Imogen's Stories.

Lee Stafford The Original Chopstick Styler Curling Wand Review

I was lucky enough to be gifted a Chopstick Styler by Lee Stafford, and I couldn't be more happy!  I have wanted one for a while to enhance my already curly hair and it just works a treat.  I used to have springing corkscrew curls but after I dyed my hair they disappeared and I was left with not so nice curls.

This Chopstick Styler works incredibly, even with VERY thick hair like myself.  It creates beautiful, tight curls and for the price, you can't really go wrong.  The Styler also comes with a two year guarantee so that if anything happened to go wrong, you can get your money back.

Overall this Chopstick Styler is great value and quality for the price and very lightweight, perfect for travelling.  I am so happy with this and would 100% recommend it!
