It’s Spring! What now?

fredflare.com... WE LOVE SPRING

Spring has sprung – thankfully – and it’s time to reflect it in our clothes, beauty regimens and attitudes. I’m even thinking of packing up my winter clothes to lift my spirits.

What is necessary for me to greet Spring with open arms? (You may be asking yourself) So…here is what I suggest you do. Click the pictures for links.

FIND (or purchase):  a leather/pleather jacket and/or a pashmina or wrap for chilly nights and skimpy dresses, neutral heels to go with anything

BUY FOR YOURSELF: Face: bronzer Body: a yummy exfoliating scrub Home: fresh flowers

Bronzing PowderBlood Orange+White Pepper Sugar Scrubpink-peonies-ad

DO: use cuticle oil to get your fingers pretty for the warmer months, polish for your toes so you won’t hesitate to grab your open-toed platforms

Healing Eucalyptus Cuticle OilEssie

LISTEN:  My current go-to songs: Rolling in the deep – Adele (Jamie xx remix), Howlin’ for you – The Black Keys, Baby Roulette – Chiddy Bang

TRY: Get an airbrush tan. I recently did and it changed my life. If you’re in Fayetteville call Glo. From 4-7 on Fridays, it’s 1/2 off.

Would You Wear? {Turbans}

Women of the western world have been dabbling in turban-wear for quite a while. But, if you’re acquainted with the Man Repeller, you know that turbans are not one of the most attractive things you can wear (according to men…but who cares!). However, it is easy, fashionable and a fabulous way to disguise unwashed hair. Personally I love it but have not tried it. For some reason, I feel like it looks better with a tan (doesn’t everything?). PS – I discovered airbrush spray tanning. Life changer. I digress. What do you think of turbans? My final thought is that it takes a chic person to make the turban look chic.
