A Taste of Spring


I thought about doing my 2013 Beauty Favorites, but I preferred to look ahead a bit more. I will still be doing some winter-themed posts, but I thought this would be a nice change for today, especially since I keep hearing about the snowstorm in the Northeastern region of the U.S.

When I first thought about this post, these were the products that came into mind, which I think is proof of how much I love using some of these things.

As you can see, both of these candles are well loved and I actually had each of them lit this past week when I needed a break from some of the Christmas scents. In the fall I tend to only light heavier scents, but during the winter I like to mix it up and add in some spring scents. I’m also very excited for Bath & Body Works to bring out their new candles for the spring and I will be getting a backup Market Peach!

All three of these products really scream springtime to me. I absolutely love the body butters from The Body Shop, but Pink Grapefruit in particular really makes me think of the warmer months. I know a lot of people have that special, fresh scent that really reminds them of spring and for me, it is grapefruit.

Nailtini’s nail polish in Blushing Lady is a new favorite of mine. I got this shade for Christmas and I put it on right away since I wanted a short break from anything too Christmasy or glittery. Blushing Lady is the perfect pastel pink because it is in-between flesh-tone and bubblegum pink. I know MAC’s Betty Bright lipstick was limited edition, but this was the first shade that sprang to mind when I was planning this post. Betty Bright (or any similar bright, pink-coral shade) is a staple in my makeup bag during spring and summer.

What products make you think of the warmer months? Do you start using any of your spring favorites in the winter?
