Spring can at times be a long lost rainy season and colder temps can stick around well past their welcome! With longer days, we have hope the warmer weather is on it’s way and with so many wonderful details to embrace about this time of year, we simply couldn’t let it go by unnoticed. In fact we are ready to spring (heels first) into spring! These are our spring tips on embracing the season with a bright and fresh perspective:

BRIGHTEN UP… YOUR LIPPY

Although we loved winter’s deep red lip, it’s time for a change! The days are getting lighter and brighter and your lippy should follow. Vivid orange and cotton candy pinks are the hues of the season. The Spring 2014 Fashion Week runways were simply glowing with the creamsicle inspired pouts and we find the looks oh-so-endearing!

The tulips and daffodils are beginning to bloom, signifying the start of a new season and the need for updated attire. We can’t deny our love for the understated elegance of pastels and this year’s runways brought the blush pinks, cream, mauves and robin’s egg blue. Detoxify your closet while incorporating the current trends with our helpful blog post on cleaning out your wardrobe.

SHOW YOUR SWEETER SIDE

You can’t have a sip of iced tea without being reminded of summer and sunshine, which is why it’s the perfect drink for the start of patio weather. This detoxifying blend brings the benefits of matcha, cucumber and lemon with the added sweetness of fresh strawberries! Perfect for pitcher serving with your lovely ladies on those warm spring days!

EMBRACE FLORALS YEAR ROUND

The floral trend is always in style, and home décor is no exception. There’s no better way to brighten up and prepare for spring than with fresh blooms. Rather than going the bouquet route, why not start your own garden and enjoy florals year-round? Even if you live in an apartment, it doesn’t mean we can’t maximize our outdoor space. An apartment garden is an excellent way to brighten up your balcony and spring is the best time to get started. Apartment Gardening by Amy Pennington is an excellent resource for developing an urban garden. So, get planting!
