My fellow blogger, youtuber and friend-in-real-life, Zoe has tagged me to do this Spring Tag and if truth be known, I'm not really one for doing tags on the ol' blogaroo, mainly because I am rubbish at thinking up the answers, but considering I haven't done one for literally years and these questions are pretty beauty and fashion related, I thought that I would oblige just this once to keep the lovely Mammafulzo sweet.
1 . What three colours remind you of Spring?
Pastels: lilac, mint and yellow to name but a few.
2. What is the first thing you add to your Spring wardrobe?
Sandals, maxi dresses and light cardigans, all in the same shopping trip.
3. What is the first item that you ditch from your wardrobe to make it more Spring-like?
As soon as the lighter days and warm weather bats an eyelid, thick jumpers and coats are promptly removed from my wardrobe. I find them restricting and too warm at the best of times and much prefer light layers, especially at this time of the year!
4. What are your ultimate nude and bright lipsticks?
I love Lost Cherry by Charlotte Tilbury (buy here), Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Fuchsia (review here, buy here), MAC Hue and Creme Cup (buy here).
5. What is your signature Spring fragrance?
A lot of the scents that I love are quite heavy and not necessarily spring time scents. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir (buy here) and Blue Agava and Cacao (buy here) layered together remind me of this time of the year because it was my wedding day scent. I also love See by Chloe (review here, buy here) and Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia (buy here) at this time of the year.
6. What do you add or drop from your skin care routine?
Nothing much changes for me, except during the winter my super oily skin does occasionally dry out a little so when the spring and summer comes, I tend to opt for a slightly lighter moisturiser and add in an illuminating primer sometimes.
7. Do you change your hair up in Spring?
Not usually although last autumn I did dye my roots darker for an outgrown ombre effect and I had it lightened back up this spring which you can read about in this post.
8. Are there any exciting beauty releases that you can’t wait for?
I'm really looking forward to Makeup Forever being more readily available in the UK; it is coming to Debenhams sometime this spring/summer and I am looking forward to being able to try their matte foundation.
9. What are your three favourite nail colours for Spring?
I adore Utopia and Lilac Dream by Models Own and have done for YEARS, you can see swatches of these along with some other much loved Spring polishes here. Baby Blue from Collection is a new fave of mine and looks fabulous, especially with a shiny top coat over it.
10. Who do I tag?
Sophia from Sophia Meola
Melissa from YummoMummo
Filipa from Uniquely Filipa
Leah from Leah XL
Stephanie from Nerd About Town
Anyone else that wants to do it!
What are you most looking forward to about Spring?
