I Love Spring Tag!


Hello my dears I decided today even though I was not tagged to do this I really wanted to do the " I Love Spring Tag" Because let's face it, I have blown off the handle a bit in anticipation for Spring to finally be here! and now that it is here I want to relish it. 
Anyone who reads this and wants to do this tag is welcome to do so! Consider yourself   officially tagged! 

Let's get cracking!

1. Favorite spring nail polish?

I think spring nail color palettes are my 

favorites of all time because I love wearing 

light and 

milky nail colors. 


My Current favorites are: 

Essie -- Bring Me An Oasis- a really milky 

light blue color.

Sally Hensen Hard As Nails -- Mint Sorbet- 

"minty fresh!"

Nails Inc-- Porechester Sq.- Beautiful

neutrel taupe with a light hint of purple. 

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?
I may have mentioned this before but my standard is usually a red lip no matter the season. However then Revlon came along and brought me their matte balm stain 
in a light mauve color called--Sultry. 
Which I think is so beautiful on the lips and a little more toned down in comparison to red. 
My other favorite that I have been wearing a lot is the Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in the shade -- Red Essence 
which I lightly apply on my lips and it gives them a really pretty hint of color. 

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!


I recently got this dress from Ruche, after having it open in a tab for weeks and weeks on end! and I know I featured it in A "Fancy Friday Findings Post" as well. 
Even though I think where I live this dress is best worn in late spring, early summer I think its the prettiest dress I own at the moment. 
( And I own quite a few pretty dresses.) 
The quality of the fabric is superb and hangs beautifully on the body. I also love the "trapeze" cut at the bottom of the dress that makes me look extra ethereal. Whenever I look at this dress and I feel a wave of warmth come over me as I dream about wearing this on a really warm spring afternoon. 

4. What's your favorite flower?

ohhhhh... ( hummm!) this is one is a toughie because I love all flowers so much! But I suppose it comes down to three..favorites.


2. Hydrangea's

3. Peonies/Gardenias

I notice that all of the flowers I chose have really big or multiple blooms. Does that say something about me? I am unsure but Lilacs are my favorite scent in a flower. Last year I went to a lilac festival just so I could stick my nose into their heavenly scent. Also, whenever the lilacs start blooming I get extra excited. I make a gutteral whisper "LILACS" and press my hands against the car window because usually I see them while driving somewhere. My girlfriends find it fairly amusing.

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?

I am quite fond of wearing my homemade 

flower crown~
I wanna make one!

6. What spring trend(s) are you most 

excited about this year? ( makeup, 

fashion or both!) 


( did I mention florals?)

I am aware that comes as a surprise to no one. 
When spring comes everyone is about the floral prints. 
However, I have come a long way. A couple years back all I was sporting was " all black everything all year long" that was my motto and I was stubborn about it. 
Although, I still love being shrouded in black, this spring in particular, I have gone madfor floral's and fashion pieces that play to my girly and whimsical side. 

In the makeup world I have been excited everything. All sorts of launches have come out this season and since I still feel like I am just emerging and growing as a beauty blogger--( thus a #beauty hoarder) every new makeup product that I swatch or read about or buy is SUPER exciting to me. Though I am really fond of glowy skin in the warm weather. 
Which is when I pull out my glowy staples 
--Mary Lou-Manizer from The Balm and Girl Meets Pearl Highlight by Benefit and pop that combination on my face for glowy and dewy skin. 

7. Favorite spring candle?

I would say its pretty obvious, I bet if you read my blog just often enough you would be 

able to guess right off..


If your guess was Bath and Body Works Peach 

Macaron Candle you would be right! Even 

though I have not burned this extra I ranted 

in one of my previous point about how this 

scent was limited edition. I plowed through 

the big one I had and now I only have this 

extra to savor and perhaps never burn!

( but that would be rather silly of me 

wouldn't it? I will burn it eventually but

for now I will just savor its warm, sweet 


8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?

I have been getting quite a bit of use of my 

mini perfume from NEST in the scent Midnight 

Fleur and I also have been using Tokyo Milk's 

La Vie En Mort a whole bunch. I like both of 

them equally. Been in the market for new 

scents though. Leave any suggestions in the comments!~

9. What is spring like where you live?

In Maine, often we call Spring " Mud Season" it's funny but sadly true. After our massive amounts of snow melt and the ground unfreezes often yards and fields flood over and we start gaining new "lakes" where I have witnessed ducks swim in before. 
It also takes forever to warm up and sometimes we get a few more sneaky blows of snow. It does not really feel spring like till right now in late April. 
April, is the magical month where in Maine you can walk outside without a coat, pull the windows down and finally watch the flowers blossom and hear the peepers emerge. 
Sometimes, I feel I am not really suited to live in Maine forever because Winter is too long to bear, but, once it finally warms up here. It almost feels worth it because it is so serene and beautiful.

10. What's your favorite thing about spring?

- My Birthday is in Spring ( May 1st!! This 

Thursday! EEK!) I love pretty much everything 

about spring. The colors, the world livening 

again I just feel so happy when the spring 

finally arrives!
