Spring is the season that excites me the most. Once we get to March after the long grey days since Christmas everything begins to wake up. This always feels to me like the real new year. Lighter evenings, brighter days and the first touches of greenery starting to appear.
I deffinately start to plan and organise every aspect of my life at this time from Sring cleaning and decluttering our home to tidying and preparing the garden for summer. I also like to store away some of the nic naks or change around furnature to make rooms feel more light and spacious. It’s also that time of year to get down from the attic my Spring/Summer clothes and pack away any bulky jumpers scarves and coats.
I love to rotate my wardrobe by the seasons not only for space but I actually get excited by items I’ve forgotten about and it’s almost like you are shopping your own wardrobe. Of course with Spring comes the floral outfits and I love to ditch the black and opt for more lighter tones and neutrals. Prettier pieces and blue and white stripes give a fresh new feel.
Out in our garden the bulbs I always forgotten I planted start to show signs of life and new beginnings and we just love to get out for a long walk in a Sunday afternoon and see the beautiful snowdrops and daffodils in the woodlands.
For me This season is a good time to prep yourself for the Summer. Everyone aims for that Summer ready body goal but as I’ve got older I just aim to be as healthy as I can be. I usually start a good skincare routine so my skin is fresh to wear little or no make up in Summer and I’ll try to fit in a couple of great detoxifying facials at a salon. Let me know your Spring plans id really love to hear your ideas too?
