I think Spring is officially here and I am ready to welcome it in with open arms. I could do without the pollen and allergies, but I’ll save my complaining for another day.
During a stroll through Back Bay yesterday (free parking to encourage folks to come into town!) I ran into Copley Square. One of my favorite signs that Spring is here is that tulips are planted throughout the city. I couldn’t help but think it was fitting to have such lovely flowers directly next to the beautiful memorial space that has been set up for the victims of the marathon bombing.
I walked around the city for the afternoon and enjoyed the sunshine. It was a relaxing way to say hello to Spring and say hello to the outdoors.
Speaking of the season changing, I saw this tag on YouTube and decided to bring it to the blog.
I ♥ Spring Tag!
1. Favorite spring nail polish?
Essie Where’s My Chaffeur?- This is an amazing tealish color. Love this! I paired this last week with Essie’s Trophy Wife.
2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?
Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in Cherry On Top. I love all the bright colors that have been showing up on shelves this season, but I can’t exactly rock neon pink lipstick at work without looking like some type of hooker. Fortunately this Cherry on Top is the perfect fuchsia that is fun without being overwhelming. Slight sheer, shiny, and feels oh so smooth.
3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
You saw this in my last post. I WILL wear this dress this Spring. YES!
4. What’s your favorite flower?
My ultimate favorite flower is the peony. It just makes me happy! But for Spring, you can never go wrong with a tulip. Plus, my Mom loves them so I feel all kinds of connected to her when I see them. Mother Nature will do that to ya.
PS. Those tulips are from a few years ago in Central Park. Perfection!
5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?
I love a good scarf. This mint green and peach polka dot scarf from Target is where it is at this season.
6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year?
Bold stripes seem to be in this year. Or so it seems. I’m on board with this! I’m not good with what is trendy. I end up liking trends but not really figuring them out until several seasons later.
7. Favorite spring candle?
I don’t burn candles but I do simmer my Scentsy! My favorite Spring scent is definitely Scentsy Cherry Limeade. It reminds me of a Sonic slushie thing. “Zesty key lime, sweet cherry, and juicy berry: a delicious scent reminiscent of a soda fountain drink.”
8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?
I don’t switch up my smells too much, but right now I am loving The Body Shop’s Pink Grapefruit body spray. My usual spray is the Strawberry version, but the citrus in this just makes me giddy.
9. What is spring like where you live?
10. What’s your favorite thing about spring?
The snow melts, the sun shines for longer during the day and the flowers bloom. Korky loves to play outside too!
11. Are you a spring cleaner?
I’m not really a cleaner in general. I typically outsource this job. Wanna come over and help a girl out?!
12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
I don’t do Spring Break, but I love a good vacation. I have a few trips planned, including a little weekend getaway that starts….NOW!
See ya Monday!
What is your favorite flower? Do you still do Spring Break?
