Sassy Spring Essentials…

Step into Spring

Hey lovelies…

As my spring clear out is (almost) complete, what better way to celebrate than to dreamily ponder over what gorgeous goodies to restock my closet and beauty shelves with?! After spending a few hours mullingΒ around the interweb I’ve found a few little items of inspiration that will undoubtedly get us in the mood to dust of the winter gloom and step boldly into a new season of vibrant colours. Are you sitting comfy? Then lets’ get started…

.

Spring Essentials

1) ASOS Curve Swing Dress: After packing away those winter woollies this gorgeous Asos Swing Dress (available in sizes 18-28) is the perfect patterned addition to brighten up any wardrobe. I love these shorter dresses for us taller gals too as they make the perfect maxi style top with a sassy pair of skinny jeans or leggings!

.

2) Marc Jacobs Daisy: No spring wishlist would be complete without a fresh waft of perfume that also happens to be contained in one of the prettiest daisy-clad bottles you’ll set your peepers upon. Marc Jacobs Daisy is the ideal spring scent that smells every bit as fresh and feminine as it looks.

.

3) Β Superdrug Colour Performance: New season, new hair! After surviving those harsh winter months, most follicles are screaming out for a little TLC. The Superdrug hair colour range is by far one of the best I’ve tried and tested (many times I should add *aah hem*) It’s undoubtedly one of the most vibrant finishes that holds it’s colour for such an impressive length of time. For the price it really is a bargain girls. Oh, and the freebie conditioner is phenomenal for taming even the frizziest of manes! You’re welcome πŸ˜‰

.

4) MUA Spring Break Palette: Having road-tested an entire batch of MUA products over the last few months I’m mightily impressed with this budget busting range of cosmetic goodies. How beautiful is this spring palette that’s simply bursting with super delicious pastille shades guaranteed to brighten up even the most lack-lustre of lids. For a mere Β£4.00 you just can’t go wrong!

.

5) Marni Leather Boots: Okay I’ll admit ladies, they’re a little ‘unique’ compared to my normal choice of foot fashion, however I adore the quirky heel design and neutral colour that will look great with almost any spring outfit… and with 60% off they make a great new season investment!

.

6) Benefit CORALista Coral Blush: I’ve yet to meet a beauty addict yetΒ who isn’t a fan of Benefit’s mighty range of captivating cosmetics. I’ve noticed so many rave reviews about this beautiful blush set that it’s edged its way straight to the top of my spring wishlist! Check it out ladies – it even comes with it’s own cute little blush brush ❀

.

7) Dior Addict Lip lipgloss: I’ve had my eye on this little tube of lip-candy for a while now. Not only is the packaging a visual treat but the product itself is available in a huge range of delicious colours that’s guaranteed to perk up any pout.

.

8) Michael Kors (Brooke) Leather Shoulder Tote: You all know how much of a handbag addict I am, of course after stumbling upon this stunning tote from one of my favourite handbag designers, I simply had to sneak it onto the Wishlist. At Β£310 it’s a little on the pricey side but worth every penny for a high quality bag that’s sure to drop a few jaws in the process (mine included) I’m in love!

So there you have it beauty buddies, my Step into Spring wishlist. What’s top of your seasonal must haves? AreΒ you all setΒ to wave goodbye to your winter thermals?

  3. Those are fab products on your sassy Spring essentials. The Dior lipgloss is perfect. I went through my first little tube and is perfect to keep in a makeup bag and even on your vanity. I’ve never tried the Daisy perfume. Love Marc Jacobs. The bottle is super cute. If you end up getting Coralista, I’m sure you’d love it. Beautiful coral. No doubt it would look gorg. on you πŸ™‚ that dress is super cute, and leggings are great to pair with it for taller gals (great idea to wear it as a tunic. Great post Karen! Time to go shopping! πŸ‘—πŸ‘›β€οΈ xo

  4. Karen I love everything that you’ve picked out here. I think we would make terrific shopping buddies πŸ™‚ That dress is so pretty!! And it comes in my size too πŸ˜€ With the weather being quite warm here in Vegas it’s already like spring time. I never got to have much of a chance to spend any time in winter thermals lol. I just love florals too. Plus I have already made the switch over to tan crossbody bag for this season. It’s very cute, I think I have it instagrammed lol. Excellent post Karen!! You’ve really inspired me for spring! πŸ˜€ ❀ Xoxo

    • Oooh can you imagine the damage we’d do on a spree – such a shame we’re in two different countries and on spending cuts lol I know, I’m always soooo excited when I see something pretty in my size too *happy dance* πŸ˜€ Oh you’re so lucky you don’t have to wrap up, I’d happily exchange the cold for a bit of Vegas warmth though I hear it can be incredibly hot out there so maybe it would be a tad uncomfortable after a while!!! Must check out Instagram to see your beautiful bag πŸ™‚ Awwh, thank you so so much – so chuffed you enjoyed it huni ❀ XXXXX

      • You’re very welcome Karen – We would do a lot of spending damaging together I imagine lol. Plus I like helping people pick stuff out so I would probably be a really bad influence haha. πŸ™‚ Yeah it gets really hot here in the summer though. I am glad that I only have to deal with one more! ❀ XXXXX
