Tag; Step into Spring!

Tag; Step into Spring!

    Hey guys, so here’s another instance of me inviting myself to a party that I wasn’t invited to. I really like tags, probably because I kind of had my start on DeviantArt back about a decade ago, when there were so many people doing tags in their posts. That’s not strictly blogging, but I do recall doing so. many. tags. 

     I know that I’ve been quiet this week, I don’t have a reason or excuse other than I just… had no energy. No matter how many coffees I drink to cheer myself up, I still feel lackluster. I’m wondering if the prospect of braving these 49 days to my big trip has me feeling down. It’s really likely.

     Today’s post is another Question and Answer style post, this one in a valiant effort to remind myself that it’s spring. I welcome you guys to take part too on the platform of your choice!

1. What 3 colours remind you most of Spring?

      For me, it’s definitely baby yellow, pastel purple and soft pink. I remember growing up and eating peeps with the rest of the children after hunting for multiple pastel plastic eggs. There’s something so innately spring about pastels to me. 

2. What is the first thing you’d add to your wardrobe in Spring?

      I’m really partial to flowy bohemian style skirts and loose peasant tops for the spring. I tend to start dressing more for casual festivals then everyday life once the weather permits. 

3. What is the first wardrobe item you ditch in Spring?

     I do away with bulkier coats in favor of cardigans and colorful pull-overs. Sadly, I end up pushing any items featuring fuzzy faux fur to the back of my closet in favor of booties that are more season appropriate.

4. What are your ultimate Spring nude and Spring bright lipsticks?
    
    Please don’t judge me too harshly for this one, but I really like the Kylie Lip Kit in Apricot for my springy pink. It’s so soft and almost like a ‘grown-up’ version of the iridescent pinks I wore as a teen. I also favor more rose gold tones for my nudes, my favorite is one I don’t even know the name of.

5. What is your top Spring fragrance?

     You mean people change scents for the season? My favorite scent ever is vanilla. But if I had to pick a spring scent, it would be light and floral. Floral isn’t my usual scent, so I sadly don’t have any to use as an example for this one!

6. What do you add/drop from your skincare routine in Spring?

     My skincare routine is woefully inadequate, to be honest. I pretty much just moisturize in the morning then again at night after taking my makeup off. I try to remember to slap some moisturizer on my face when I don’t wear makeup, but more often than not, I forget.

7. Do you change your hair up in Spring?

    I change my hair up all the time! It doesn’t have to a seasonal thing. It’s just when I’m bored of what i have going on, which is what happened this time. I do notice that my current chop did take place right as the seasons were changing over. Hm. 

8. Are there any exciting beauty releases you’re waiting for this Spring?

    A few that I’m aware of right now! My favorites hail from Colour Pop, personally just for the affordability factor and their superb quality. I’m a little ashamed to admit that I did purchase (I think) 7 items from their Disney Villains collection. I ordered the palette along with Facilier’s set, then tacked on Ursula’s highlight and Cruella’s gloss

    The next one is also from Colour Pop and it’s their actual 2019 spring collection, I purchased the ‘your face is like sunshine‘ set because I have no self control, and really like the colors and the idea of getting lots of items for pretty cheap.     

    There is an honorable mention from MAC, that I haven’t purchased from. I’m lowkey proud that I haven’t gotten something from the Boom, Boom, Bloom collection, but I know it only because when I looked at it, the For the Frill of It gloss was sold out. 

9. What are your top 3 Spring nails shades?

    Definitely have to go with teal, rosy pink and champagne. Champagne is a perfect color for any season, in my humble opinion.

10. Who do you tag to do this post next?

     I did already kind of answer this question before we got started, since I don’t have any friends -sniff- that blog, I tag my lovely readers! If you do participate in this tag, please leave the link in the comments below!

Christmas Tag: Sweater Weather!

     Hey there guys! We’re cresting another day of Blogmas! (Sorry to switch up the names on you!) For today’s adventure, I found this adorable Christmas related tag! Honestly, I encourage you guys to do this one too and share it with us in the comments below! I found this over at Louise Rose’s blog, you can check out her responses hereI did change a few things about this, since they pertained to Thanksgiving and Fall, to be more Winter inclined.

 

 

1. Favourite candle scent?

You guys may remember from Yesterday’s post that I’m totally obsessed with vanilla scents and associate it with pretty much every good thing that’s ever happened to me. I really like the French Vanilla from Yankee Candle and Mainstays has this delicious smelling Hazelnut candle that smells like coffee. So, my favorite is definitely one of those two!

2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Do I have to choose? I love all of these. You guys know that for me, Coffee is literally all the time. I do really enjoy tea on ocassion and cocoa is fantastic during this time of year, especially.

3. What’s the best fall memory you have?
This is the first difficult questi9on for me to answer. I guess if I had to choose, it would be when I was child. My mother dressed me as  ghost for Halloween and the entire house smelled like vanilla. I remember the coolness on the air and the promise of candy. As children we really tend to take those mundane moments for granted.

4. Which make up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eye liner?

Oh goodness. Another toughie. I really love a dark red lip. A lot. But wings also look really great. I think if I could master wings, those would be my pick. But I think I’m going to have to give it to the lips this time. 

5. Best fragrance for fall?
I really like warm spiced scents for the fall and for the winter my favorite scents go more towards sweet and warm… like vanilla. I did recently find a wonderful Hot Cocoa body spray over Black Friday that I love for this season!

6. Favorite Christmas food?
Probably desert! I don’t know if I can really pick one. Maybe my all-time favorite dessert in the world; cheesecake!

7. What is winter weather like where you live?
Fickle, to say the least. This morning it was in the 30s and tonight it’s closer to 70. This is why I get sick, guys! I guess that’s what I signed up for staying in the south. It’s really for the best, because I have no idea what to do with snow.

8. Most worn sweater?
I don’t really have too many sweaters that I default to, other than light cardigans. My usual over-clothes-heating-solution is ordinarily one of my two black jackets. One of which I’ve had for 2 years and has seen better days, and the other a newer acquisition from JCPenny.

9. Must-have nail polish this winter?
I favor lots of Gold and metallic colors for the winter. Especially lighter ones with Holo flecks. Gold, Silver and Bronze are somehow perfect for the cooler seasons!

10. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
I’ll totally jump in the remaining leaf piles!

11. Skinny jeans or leggings?
Leggings! Because I feel like skinny jeans can have a tendency to accentuate things I may not want them to. Also leggings can sub for pants when you want to wear a skirt!

12. Combat boots or uggs?
Combat boots! BecauseUggs aren’t really my style.

13. Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
In my opinion… not really. I generally despise chai or spiced flavors in my drinks or anything. I think the only time I like pumpkin spice is in pumpkin pie.

14. Favourite Winter TV show?
I don’t really watch too much TV. I generally just watch Youtube videos or Hulu. Most of what I watch is true crime or beauty oriented. Sometimes I get sucked into the latest Gossip in the Beauty community.

15. What song really gets you into the Winter spirit?
If I had to pick just one, you know it has to be All I want for Christmas is you! That’s an absolutely must for this season!

Thank you again to Louise, for giving me this idea! Somehow these Christmas related posts are more difficult than I had anticipated!

Please do tweet me or comment below to let me know if/when you complete this tag post. I’m looking forward to reading your answers!

Keep an eye out for tomorrow’s post guys! We’re getting closer and closer to the big day! 🙂
