1. Favourite spring nail polish?
|I know this is a blush, don't worry, I've not gone crazy!|
I'm a prolific nail biter (awful I know, but whenever an essay deadline looms I seem to bite them all off) so I'm going to switch this question to favourite spring blush because you know how much I love blush. I have kind of cheated (but not really) and picked the Illamasqua Blush Duo in Lover & Hussy. I've had this duo for a little while and barely touched it but the colours are so Spring appropriate I've decided it's time to show them some love. Lover is the most perfect peach and Hussy is a gorgeous vibrant pink. Beautiful!
2. What is your must have lip colour for this Spring?Topshop All About Me lipstick and this was the shade I wore so much last Spring & Summer and all those happy memories came flooding back. This is the colour I'm wearing today and it's one of those colours that just makes me happy so I have a feeling it's going to be a favourite again this year!

4. What is your favourite flower?
Either tulips or daisies. They make me smile whenever I see them!
5. What is your favourite spring scarf or accessory?
Definitely my RayBan Outdoorsman sunglasses♦. I've never owned a pair of really nice sunglasses before, so I'm super excited to wear these! They've also got my prescription in so I don't need to wear my contact lenses whenever it's sunny anymore. I'm sure fellow contact lens wearers know what I mean when I say they're not always comfortable and sometimes you don't want to deal with hayfever eyes or potential sand in eye situations with them in!
6. Which spring trends are you most excited for this year? (Make up, fashion, or both)
Fashion wise, I'm totally not clued up on Spring trends at all. I do really like floral prints, not as much as I used to, but I definitely enjoy seeing lots of bright colours find its way back into the shops. Make Up wise, again I'm not sure what's 'trendy' at the moment but I'm excited to wear more bronzey looks with highlighted cheekbones and dewy skin. I love that look and I can never pull it off in the cooler months because I get so super pale.
7. Favourite spring candle?
Am I totally failing as a blogger if I say I'm not that much of a candle person in spring & summer? I feel like I've broken some kind of unsaid blogger rule! Saying that though, I saw a post by Annabel from Fragmented Splendour yesterday mentioning a pineapple candle from Primark that sounds amazing & I think I'm going to have to go and pick one up at some point very soon.
8. Favourite perfume or body spray this Spring?
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh is definitely my spring favourite, it's a really delicate fragrance and it smells exactly like parma violet sweeties to me, without being overpowering or too much. It's beautiful & I think I'll be wearing this a lot throughout Summer too.
9. What is spring like where you live?
Oh gosh, it really varies, I'm sure all of you UK dwellers will agree with me on this one. Last spring was incredible, it was super sunny and really warm. This year has been a bit all over the place, it snowed a lot, rained a lot and now I'm hoping the sunshine is here to stay for a little while!
10. What is your favourite thing about spring?
The sunshine and the fact that everything seems to wake up after a long sleep! It's so lovely, especially after a long and wet Winter, to finally see the sun shining and feel the warmth on your face. The flowers bloom, there are lots of lambs in the fields around where I live and everyone seems to feel just that little bit happier.
11. Are you a Spring cleaner?
I would like to say yes, but in reality although I always have the best intentions I procrastinate really badly! As I've got older I'm much better at giving away unwanted clothes and I'm trying my best to declutter my life as much as possible.
12. Any plans for a Spring holiday?
Nowhere abroad because I'm completely terrified of planes, but I'm hoping we'll manage a trip to the seaside sometime soon! I really miss the beach, the warm sand underfoot and the smell of the salty air. I'm excited for a Mr Whippy (with a flake) and a paddle in the sea, no matter how freezing cold it is!
