Even though there’s still (a lot) of snow on the ground and we’re not out of the “safe zone” yet, I am very excited to welcome spring 2018 into my life! I was seriously starting to doubt if this day would ever come. Was it only my city or does the rest of the world feel like we just experienced the Longest. Winter. Ever?! SO glad to see the back of it!
I’m not ready to do a full Spring 2018 Fashion and Beauty post yet, because to be honest, winter has been so fierce this year that I have barely had any time to think about spring. I’ve been too busy trying to keep myself warm and not fall on ice! But, what I am going to do is share my 3 spring must haves for every year
Bath & Body Works candle in Lemon Mint Leaf – price can vary depending on sales
I am obsessed with this scent! It is only available in the spring and early summer so I always stock up. I think I have 4 or 5 in my spare room closet as we speak. The scent is a delicious mix of lemon zest, spearmint leaves and verbena sprigs. If any of you go to a yoga studio that hands out lemongrass cloths after class, that is what this candle smells like! It is an absolute must have for me every spring.
Scrub, scrub, scrub!
It’s not only your home that can benefit from a spring clean, your body can to! This is why a good body scrub is an absolute must! I have linked my favorite one below, but another great scrub is just good old coconut oil and sugar. I put 1 part coconut oil and 2 parts sugar into a jar (a mason jar works great), shake it and use it as needed in the shower. The coconut oil gives your skin some major moisturizing, which is an added bonus to the exfoliating benefits.
Last but not least, one of my favorite things to do each season is change my perfume to the season. During the winter it’s rare that I stray away from Burberry Brit, which is a strong vanilla type scent. But, as soon as spring hits I like to go for something more fun and fruity. I like to try something new each year, but my go-to is often one of the Marc Jacobs Daisy fragrances, and usually it’s Daisy Eau So Fresh that wins every time! I was so happy to put it on this morning and I keep getting whiffs of the light, springy fragrance all day. Plus, how cute is this bottle?!
What are your spring must haves?
