Spring Tag!

Last week I was tagged by the lovely Ashleigh at Quintessentially Me to do the Spring Tag.  I haven't done any blogger tags before but this one looks like fun, so here goes...

First off, I need to choose five bloggers I love reading to tag, my picks are:

Kel from Kel Loves
Clara from Smiley Clara
Sarah from Sugarpuffish
Cat from Outside Beauty, Inside Health
Kat from Tales of a Pale Face

Now, here come the questions.

1. What's your favourite Spring nail polish?
Definitely Merino Cool by Essie.  I tend to like darker nail polishes most of the time so this is actually quite a light one for me, but I find the lovely lilac grey is perfect for this transitional time of year.

2. What is your must-have lip colour this Spring?
The shade I’ve been wearing the most over the last couple of weeks is Illamasqua’s lipstick in Magnetism.  It’s a lovely deep raspberry shade and can be really vampy, but at the moment I wear it most often just pressed lightly onto my lips for a lovely subtle pink.

3. Show us your favourite Spring dress.
In the past I’ve never been much of a dress person so really don’t have a favourite spring dress to show you.

4. What's your favourite flower.
I actually have no idea!  I suppose at this time of year I love the daffodils that are springing up everywhere, but my favourite find this week was this little beauty in my own garden:

5. What is your favourite Spring scarf/accessory?
My favourite scarf is actually a new one that my lovely other half treated me to from Topshop.  It's really light weight and I love the mix of muted colours to brighten up my outfits.

6. What Spring trends are you most excited about this year.
I'm really loving the bomber jackets that I'm seeing everywhere, especially those with Oriental or floral inspired prints.  I will have to pick one up soon!

7. Favourite Spring candle?
At the moment I'm still loving this natural soy wax candle scented with wild flowers - I posted about it here.

8. Favourite body spray/perfume for Spring?
I actually haven’t changed my perfumes for spring, I’m still wearing my favourites, alternating between Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb and Liz Earle Botanical Essences No.15.

9. What is Spring like where you live?
It’s very mixed here in York.  We've had a few sunny days, but quite a few cold ones too, today we've even had hailstone!  Roll on summer is all I can say...

10. What's your favourite thing about Spring?
Definitely the change in the weather, I can’t get enough of those days that are beautifully fresh and bright.

11. Are you a Spring cleaner?
I have my moments, but honestly not really.  I have been organising my beauty stash recently though, which has meant I’ve had to clean a little bit.

12. Any plans for a Spring break or upcoming vacation?
Not right now unfortunately.  I do have some time off at the beginning of summer however so I’m hoping to maybe have a few days away then.

Well that's it for my Spring Tag post, I hope you've enjoyed it.  If you've done the spring tag I'd love to read about it, leave me your link in the comments below.

  1. This is a lovely post, I like your candle, xoxo.

    1. Thanks, it's actually really nice to burn, doesn't smoke or anything. It was pricey but I'd probably buy it again :)
