TAG: I ♥ Spring!

22 Comments

Hello my Beauties, happy sunday to all of you. The sun is shining here today, birdies are singing and it almost feels like our warm spring is finally here. 

That made me really want to do this I ♥ Spring tag, that has been going around a lot these days. 
So without further talk, let’s get down to business.
I love Spring tag by Luchessa1. Favorite Nail Polish?
I really love my Meet me at coral island by Catrice. It has the right amount of pink and orange in it to create a beautiful smooth coral color on the nails.

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?
First of all a must-have to me is a good lip balm, which is a Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment with PSF 15 at the moment and in terms of color. i’m going to stick with my current love, that made it into my last favorites post, a nice sheer coral – Tarte LipSurgence in Glisten.
3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
I have to admit, i’m that big in wearing dresses at all and even less when it comes to spring & summer dresses. The only ones i find cozy, are those wool knitted dresses for the winter time. 

4. What’s your favorite flower?
I really love the light blue and purple Hydrangeas. When i was traveling to Italy a few years ago they were right at their bloom and i remember taking a tons of pictures…i wish i had them in my home all year around…

Blue purple Hydrangeas5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?
You have to know, i’m actually more of an autumn girl and do not have that many “spring inspired” clothing items and accessories, but i picked 2 things, that i will totally rock this spring. One is my beautiful fresh orangy coral crossbody bag from Accessorize and my somewhat  Chanel inspired chain scarf, that you might have seen me wearing both HERE.
I was very much inspired by Lodis Accessories Del Rey Daria Crossbody, Banana Republic Red Leather Handbag, and especially Kate Spade Flicker Scout Bag- Flo Coral , so when i saw a similar style bag at Accessorize, i had to get it.
Bright coral orange crossbody bag Accessorize6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, Fashion or both!)
I think i’m very much excited about all the new nail polish trends, like the textured and mirrored polishes. Makes it really interesting to try them. Neons aren’t really my thing, but i see all the fun ballet flats for summer in stores already and it makes think, that spicing up a neutral outfit with some really bright blue or coral ballets wouldn’t be that bad at all.
7. Favorite Spring Candle?
Well, don’t be surprised, but it’s literally Spring by Slatkin & Co, that Bath & Body Works brought out in Spring 2012.
I love how it combines many floral scents and smells still very fresh and “happy”.
Candle Spring Slatkin & Co Bath & Body works8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?
I always go with my mood. One day i like to use a nice body lotion, like the Berry Flirt by Bath and Body Works and the other day i’m going for my wonderful Angel Gold perfume by Victoria’s Secret.
I love spring tag Berry flirt, Tarte Glisten, Catrice polish9. What is spring like where you live?
Well right now, it’s still very cold, but at least sunny. Today we have +5 °C, which is definitely way too cold for April, but i’m hoping it’s going to chance soon to the better & warmer. Usually there are much more blooming trees here and the air is full with flower scents.
And all you want to do is to sit somewhere outside in the sun with your big cup of coffee and just BE. 🙂
10. What’s your favorite things about spring?
I’m more outgoing and on the road during spring and summer, so i can’t wait for the warmth to come. And from the girly perspective of spring i will have to say, finally be able to wear cute booties and pumps, that are still sitting in my closet right now…
11. Are you a spring cleaner?
Funny enough i’m more of a winter and summer cleaner when it comes to my wardrobe, but of course i will be cleaning my windows soon (ok maybe in a few weeks…) and plant some flowers on the balcony, just like mama teached me to. 😉

There you go, my Beauties. I hope it was fun for you to read and as always you are very much invited to do the tag as well to welcome the spring 2013 season. 🙂
