As someone who loves fashion and skincare to the detriment of her wallet, I have must-have products for every season. Spring in Michigan is slowly rolling in but I can feel it. I think. At least with the products I’m about to share, I can trick myself into feeling it. Hello, Spring!
For spring, I love a good natural-looking flush while I’m flirting with boys and laughing while eating yogurt. But mostly I use Glossier’s Cloud Paint for an easy every-day look. The formula is amazing and it lasts all day. I’m serious. I typically use ‘Dusk’ as a base and then I blend ‘Haze’ into the apples of my cheeks. It brings a glow to my face like I have never known. And it shows up beautifully on camera. Thank you, Glossier. Glow up.
Okay, so obviously berets have been in style for quite a while now but I don’t see myself letting go of them anytime soon. I have a burnt orange one (pictured above), a grey one and a black one. I love the look of them with my fringe, I love the look of them with cozy sweaters and I love feelin’ like a cool french girl. Period. If someone wants me to stop wearing berets anytime soon, they will have to pry them from my cold, dead hands.
Plants (Cacti, Succulents + Air Plants)
I love plants. They really give life to a room and they can brighten up corners and windowsills. But I have a real problem with plants that aren’t low maintenance. I kill them. So I buy cacti, succulents and air plants and I have actually begun to develop a bit of a green thumb. My Grampy always loved plants. He even had a greenhouse in his backyard when I was growing up. Having greenery in my home makes me feel closer to him. So when I see a good lookin’ succulent, I can’t help but bring it home with me.
I’m currently learning how to propagate succulents but if you have any tips, I would love to hear them!
Spring makes me think of renewal. I want glowing, fresh skin year round but in the spring, taking care of your skin is so important. The weather is changing along with a lot of other factors depending on your lifestyle. But one thing I have noticed a big change with is taking collagen peptides with my coffee. Collagen peptides are not only good for your skin but they are also good for your insides (do your own research). I use Sports Research Collagen Peptides, found on Amazon.
As a self-proclaimed fashionista, I love a good timepiece. As an ex-hippie, I especially appreciate wood-crafted timepieces. I have partnered up with Jord Watches to showcase their beautiful unique timepieces for men and women. To spread the word about their beautiful wooden watches, they sent one to me personally.
They let me choose from several different styles and I received my first pick. I chose the Frankie Purpleheart and Plum watch from their Frankie series. It is a beautiful watch with a tastefully pink watch face. The wooden band fits perfectly around my wrist and I have gotten so many compliments each time I wear it! Jord’s packaging is also aesthetically pleasing and each watch comes in a beautifully crafted wooden box, pictured below.
