I *Heart* Spring Tag

*Disclaimer: My camera is still on the fritz, so images are not my own. They are taken from the product websites*
Two blogs I follow, and gained inspiration and encourage to start my own blog, are MakingUpAshlee and Natalie Loves Beauty. They have both done the "I Heart Spring" Tag, Ashlee as her very first youtube video and Natalie as a blog post. I'm not quite as brave as Ashlee to attempt a video yet, so I'll follow in Natalie's shoes and blog the tag.

1. Favorite spring nail polish? - 

I haven't been wearing much nail polish lately, but one I have been loving is Sally Hansen's X-Treme Wear in Golden-I. This color is a nice nude color with tons of glitter that just looks amazing (and that the chips don't show is a nice perk!)

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring? - I'm usually a paler-lip kinda gal, but I've been loving punchy pinks. Pinks that aren't too neon, but pack a nice wallop of bright color.

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
 - I actually don't wear dresses, but my favorite spring top is from Walmart. Mine has a bit more purples and yellows, but the style is the same.

4. What's your favorite flower? - I love lillies and Gerber Daisies, but in springtime I always keep my eye out for daffodils. It just isn't spring until I see a daffodil.

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory? I love the look of scarves, but haven't gotten into wearing them yet. Isn't it funny how we envy how nice other people look in a style, but feel so self-conscious in ourselves?

6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!) - I'm really loving the mint & coral combos. So lovely.

7. Favorite spring candle? I actually just bought a new candle trio from Walmart; it comes with Tropical Fruit, Juicy Fig, and Pomegranate Cranberry. I definitely recommend buying this trio, they all smell amazing. I'm burning Pomegranate Cranbery as we speak.

8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring? - I tend to lean towards slightly floral-slighty sweet, or slightly fruity-slightly sweet scents. Sometimes I feel my tastes aren't very mature and I should try something else, but then I never end up wearing it. I don't have a current favorite right now because I *ahem* tried something new and I never end up wearing it. What scent do you recommend?

9. What is spring like where you live? - This year spring never came. I think we're headed straight into summer as of 5 days ago! Usually, beginning of April it warms up, snow melts, we see all the dead grass, and then it snows again one last time. Flowers come out along main street, it starts to warm up and we start to see bare arms  & legs. And longer days. Very long days.

10. What's your favorite thing about spring? - I love all the fresh growth -- flowers, grass, trees. They may not love me (darn allergies) but I love seeing all the green and life. It gives me new energy. We should just make Spring Resolutions instead of New Year's resolutions.

11. Are you a spring cleaner? - Sometimes. I go in spurts all throughout the year. I try to keep my house fairly neat and orderly, and then when I get that burst of cleaning energy I super-clean-and-super-organize it all, no matter if it's spring, winter, whenever.

12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation? - I'm going away the end of this month for an overnight trip to Skagway, Alaska -- it's only a day trip, really, but I want a mini-vacay before the summer hits. I have a larger vacation planned for the fall.

I tag all of you to do this. If it's actually summer  where you live, trade out summer for spring in all the q's :)

Loved reading your take on the tag Andrea! Thanks for the mention :) Aren't Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polishes amazing? Ouuhh Alaska...have fun! :)

Andrea said...

Thanks Natalie!! I love the Xtreme wear, but they don't seem to last as long on me. Darn job and counting $$ all the time. Alaska isn't quite as exciting as it used to be, we go several times a summer BUT it's my first trip out of town in almost a year!

Thanks Ashlee! Please Me is a beautiful color, I wish I had Mac anywhere near me lol. Hmm, I might have to check out B&BW when I go on my full vacation in the fall.
