Now I have to give full credit to Nikki over at loveslaughslipstick for sharing this Spring Tag on her own blog. I love these cute little Q&A’s as it creates a wee change to what I normally put out and it’s also an easy read.
I love the start of Spring. It’s not just the lighter evenings and the hint of sunshine around the corner but it’s the overall feeling of happiness that everyone seems to get during this blissful season.
1. Favourite spring nail polish?
I must admit that I’m not the most frequent of nail polish users – I have no nails 360 days out of the year (the five is when I’m on holiday and they grow like cray cray). Although for some odd reason, I seem to own more nail varnishes than I do of any other beauty product so if I’d have to pick, I actually love darker shades, so something a deep blue or black is perfect.
2. What is your must-have lip colour this spring?
So I’m definitely stopping off at NYX to do another lip matte haul but I like to keep it pretty simple during Spring. I loved using BarryM’s lip oils last year which had a slight tint in one so kept my lips feeling moisturised in the hot weather. Any lip balm with a tint would be a winner in my eyes this Spring.
3. Show us your favourite spring dress!
I haven’t actually got one yet. I’m planning to do a little retail shopping on my next payday to get a few Spring outfits for mine and Sam’s quick getaway to Rome this month!
4. What’s your favourite flower?
I really do love cherry blossoms which seem to come out during this time of year. I think they are so dainty and symbolise what the season of Spring represents – new life and the change in weather.
5. Favourite spring scarf/accessory?
I’ve just recently brought some big hoops which I’m determined to wear more as I hardly ever wear jewellery. I only tend to bring out more of my stash of bling when Summer comes around. I love simple pieces at the moment so that’s what I’m going for this time round.
6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)
I really want to get myself some bell sleeve tops. I want to get some use out of my knee high grey boots and pull it off with an oversized rocky t-shirt/dress. I’m excited about actually wearing less make-up as I tend to hold back a bit more of the makeup around this time. I really wanted to try out some tinted moisturisers and just go all baby face fresh for the Summer.
7. Favourite spring candle?
Anything that smells of linen or has a citrusy note to it. I’m all about fresh scents during Spring so I’ll make sure to grab some candles to burn around the flat like a mad woman.
8. Favourite body spray / perfume for spring?
I’m not really fussy when it comes to perfumes so I’ll just probably wear an assortment of Next/Lush- Whatever’s on my dressing table.
9. What is spring like where you live?
Londoners are a lot more friendly in Spring than they are in Winter. In Winter, us Londoners are a bunch of see you next Tuesdays – if you get me… #Londonersneedsuntobehumans
10. What’s your favourite thing about spring?
The sun is up when you wake up early in the morning and it’s still shining when you leave work at 6pm – this is what you call a little slice of heaven.
11. Are you a spring cleaner?
….pah – I clean when I clean. I think that goes for all year round.
12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
YES! Me and Sam are heading to Rome for a couple of days this month and we plan on taking many more mini excursions throughout the rest of the year with a big blowout at the end of September. Somewhere hot, lots of food and booze and literally doing nothing all day long.
