I Heart Spring Tag

I don’t usually do too many of these tags, but I love spring and I love Hannah, who tagged me on this one, so I couldn’t not do it!

Hannah blogs over at Floraful about beauty, her adventures with her husband Cecilio, as well as life with lupus. I really admire her positivity and how she enjoys life despite having to deal with a chronic disease. I find her very inspiring, so definitely check out her blog if you haven’t already.

Now, let’s get down to this question-answering business, shall we?

Favorite spring nail polish?

I guess it changes from year to year. This spring it’s definitely the Givenchy Le Vernis in Purple Ink.

Must-have lip color this spring?

The Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick in 378 Pink Power, which has an extremely comfortable yet long-wearing formula and mega-watt brightness.

Favorite spring dress?

Hmmm… I don’t really know how to answer this question. Should I mention a style? A specific brand and model? Plus, I associate dresses with summer rather than spring, so let’s just jump to the next question.

Favorite flowers?

Sunflowers, but since they’re not spring flowers, I’ll go with calla lilies.

Favorite spring accessory?

I can’t really think of an accessory I only wear in the spring… Although, actually, I totally consider nail polish an accessory, so, see above.

What spring trends are you most excited for this year (makeup or fashion)?

I’m not much of a trend follower, but I’m looking forward to wearing bright pink and orange lipsticks, which is something I always do in the warmer months.

Favorite spring candle?

I tend to burn candles mainly in the fall and winter, but yesterday I had the chance to give the Sea Salt & Sage Yankee Candle a sniff, and I have a feeling that it might soon become my first spring candle.

Favorite body spray or perfume for spring?

I like the same fresh, light fragrances all year round, and over the past few months I’ve been very much in love with the clean, salty notes of the Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne (I guess I really have a thing for sage and salt together!).

What is spring like where you live?

It really depends! Here in Bologna, Italy, some years spring is rainy and cold while other years it’s sunny and summery. This year so far it’s been amazing: lots of sunshine and temperatures around 20-25° C. Needless to say that I LOVE it!

What is your favorite thing about spring?

The feeling of rebirth, the longer days, the warmer weather, strawberries…

Are you a spring cleaner?

Nope, I just do the bare minimum all year round.

Any plans for spring break or upcoming vacation?

I’ve started a new job about a month ago, so I think it’ll be a while before I can take a vacation… but we will see! 😉

I’d love for you to answer one or more questions in the comment section below. Let’s all celebrate the beauty of spring together!

    I might have to steal this tag from you because I really like these questions. Spring is not in full bloom here in Ohio yet but I am really looking forward to it. I love spring and warm weather!

    Congrats on your new job! What do you do now, if I may ask?

    Calla lilies were my wedding flowers for my first wedding, so they are bittersweet for me. But beautiful flowers nonetheless.

    I love the Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne as well (never own it, but I make sure to spritz some on my wrist each time I’m at a Jo Malone counter)! I’m also just the same when it comes to Spring dress, to me dresses are a summer thing!

    I’m not a spring cleaner either but my room has been so cluttered that I need to do some major spring cleaning! I don’t wear much accessories either but hmm, time to paint my nails!

    Here where I live Spring is rainy and very windy so it’s not the ideal weather for outside activities. My favourite Spring flowers? Hands down tulips, I even have them in my backyard.

    I’m so glad that you did this tag! Usually spring here is fairly sunny but we’ve been getting a ton of rain lately, which is good for our drought I guess. We would have a few days of sunshine only for it to be pouring again.
