BLOGGER TAG | I love Spring!

This morning I was not in a positive mood shall we say and was feeling a bit down then the delightful Tamryn from TotallyTamryn tagged me for the I love Spring blogger tag and it cheered me up a little.

So let's get to it! The tag works as follows, answer the 12 Spring related questions and then at the end tag 5 people to do it next!
1. What's your favourite spring nail polish?
This will probably be a pretty generic answer but who doesn't love pastels in the spring? So number 1 would be pastels, of any colour really. I recently bought a gorgeous Barry M one in a haul post here. And I am currently hunting for a perfect pastel pink shade.
2. What is your must-have lip-color this Spring?

Deffinitely coral. I got a lovely one from Rimmel and Mac but I really want a matt Coral shade so I have been on the hunt. 

3. Show us your favourite Spring dress!

Ahhh so many. Currently I am lusting after this Lipsy VIP Millie Macintosh dress to wear at a wedding.

4. What's your favourite flower?

Roses, roses, roses. I love Roses!!! They are so beautiful and silky and smell divine. Best way to my heart is a rose.

5. What is your favourite Spring scarf /accessory?


This is a good question. It has got me thinking. I have a lovely Becksondergaard scarf which is large enough to use as a shawl too and the shades are very neautral so I think that it is perfect for this time of year. You can see it in a post I did here.

6. What Spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? ( makeup, fashion, or both)

Pretty dresses and lacey shorts. And the lovely light colours. Goodbye black!! Hooray!

7. Favourite Spring candle?

Ahh so many. I love candles. Jo Malone do some beautiful ones but they are pretty expensive. My sanctuary for cheap candles is Sainsbury's, they have been lovely. Like Vanilla and Cotton.

8. Favourite body spray/perfume?

This has to be Miller Harris. All their scents are lovely and natural. My favourite at the moment is Coeur de Fleur which I reviewed here.

9. What is Spring like where you live?

In London it can be absolutely roasting which is lovely if you don't have to get on the tube! The you are faced with lots of sweaty people with their arms in the air.. not ideal. Last year I decided to give Borris bikes a go. Cycling around Hyde Park and South Kensington with the sun shining was beautiful.  Scotland can be quite warm but it tends to be quite a few degrees cooler than London.

10. What is your favourite thing about Spring?

First it is the weather being warmer and brightening my mood. I also love seeing the flowers blossoming and the baby lambs jumping in the field.

11. Are you a Spring cleaner?

I don't think I clean particularly because it is spring. I like to have a clean out every few months to keep things tidy including my mind. Out with the old.. in with the new :-)

12. Any plans for Spring break or an upcoming vacation? 

In a word.. nope! Perhaps later in the summer when everything has settled down a bit more.

I hope you enjoyed reading my I love Spring tag :-)
