Seeing as Spring is really in the air, I’ve decided to do another beauty and fashion tag – dedicated to this season! Feel free to use this tag, and reply with a link to yours, would like to hear your answers!
Favourite spring nail polish?
As you may know from my previous tag that I 90% of the time wear shellac nail polish, just because it keeps my nails stronger, and lasts longer. I’m absolutely loving pale colours on the nails at the moment (makes my hands look more tanned!) and the one I’m currently using is a mix. I’m using the Bluesky 40526, which is the white from the French Manicure set, mixed with the Bluesky Pastel Blossom. You’re probably wondering why I mixed these colours but I accidentally ordered 2 French Manicure sets of Amazon, so instead of wasting one, I decided to make a pink/white to use during the Spring/Summer months. Ta-da!
What is your must-have lip color this spring?
I’ve got two favourites that I purchased quite recently but cant stop wearing.
First of all is the gorgeous burnt orange colour from Topshop and it’s called Hedonist and it was £7. Unfortunately, it is not on the Topshop website but they may have it in store. If not they have plenty of other beautiful orange colours in lip paints, tints, bullets and crayons, such as the Lip Bullet in Heartbeat.
The second is an Accessorize lipstick in Love Struck. This is a very bright colour, I don’t think the pictures do it justice! But it’s a bluey pink, therefore teeth appear whiter! I think this will be absolutely amazing in summer for both the day and nights out. This was only £4.50. This has been around for quite some time now, so it’s not online. I have seen it in Superdrug and Accessorize stores, so it is a case of searching. If not there is a similar lipstick which is the Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Loved Up.
What’s your favorite flower?
At this time of year my favourite flowers are daffodils. It just reminds me that its Spring and the heat is on its way! Also I love the fact they come out of nowhere, and they’re just so colourful and pretty!
Favorite spring scarf/accessory?
I don’t actually own any spring scarfs at the moment, mainly because I haven’t found one that I like enough. But I am absolutely obsessed with 2 accessories at the moment. The first is my black and white bow from Topshop. I have worn it pretty much every day I’ve had it, and cone be worn in so many different ways. It’s so cute and girly.
Secondly, is my new Prada sunglasses. I’ve been wanting a pair of cat eye sunglasses for ages. And I really wanted to treat myself to a nice pair for summer, seeing as in the house fire that happened last year (you may know this if you’ve seen my other blog), all my nice sunglasses were binned – and I had a lot! Hopefully these ones will last a lot longer.
They both make an appearance in this fashion feature:
What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)
Kimono’s. Especially floral one’s! I have recently just bought a Zara one which looks amazing with jeans and a coloured camisole underneath. I’m going to keep it a secret though as I think I’m going to be using it for my next fashion feature!
Favorite spring candle?
I’ve recently purchased loads of Spring/Summer candle ‘tarts’ from Yankee Candle to replace my winter ones. I’m currently burning Waikiki Melon which smells amazing. I tend to alternate to keep my room smelling different so that I can actually smell it, otherwise I’d get used to it! The melted pink one at the bottom is Pink Dragon Fruit, and then I have Fluffy Towels, Strawberry Buttercream and Sandalwood Vanilla.
Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?
Always has and always will be Armani Diamonds for Spring. It smells very sweet and fresh, just like this beautiful season. I also use Ghost Anticipation which is now discontinued! In winter I love using Dolce & Gobanna Light Blue.
What is spring like where you live?
I live in Bournemouth in the UK which is a lovely seaside town. The first sneak of sunlight we see is my favourite time of year. Everyone is suddenly out of their winter clothes and into some shorts and sandals, all in a good mood and smiling – it’s great! Plus we have the beach which is perfect for BBQ’s and walks.
What’s your favorite thing about spring?
The fact that it’s a reminder that Summer is just around the corner. Also my birthday is in May, which I think technically counts as Spring – so what other reason do I need to have!
Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
No vacay’s on the card at the moment, just revision, revision, revision. I need to pass my first year at University! I’m going back to work soon so hopefully I can save some up and get away.
Hope you all enjoy your Spring, and let me know what your thoughts are!!
