Spring began at the end of March, unfortunately in my neck of the woods the weather didn't get the memo. That being said, I love Spring because everything starts to feel new and fresh. You can open the windows and doors and let out the stale recycled air, I'm inspired to deep clean (kinda), and I start to fill the house with flower and live stuff. It just makes the place seem cheery on the days when it's more grey than beautiful. I also like to update my hand soaps, it's basically the only time of year I stray from my traditional vanilla based scents.
As you may know from my other home posts, I love me some Bath & Body Works, but I do really struggle outside of the fall and winter to find ones I love. this year I was excited to find Sweet Strawberries & Cream and Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla. I admit, Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla really isn't too far out of my comfort zone but I was happy that I enjoyed the Strawberry soap so much.
I tend to like sweeter scents in the restroom and lighter scents in the kitchen. If I'm cooking chicken I don't always want to smell like a cookie in the middle of my chefing. To round out the scents I also got Eucalyptus Mint & Dancing Waters.
I have to ask - what are you guys gravitating towards these days?
I absolutely adore tulips in the Spring, and I tend to get mine at Longo's. It's out of the way (please Longo's peeps if you read this you need to open a Longo's in the Whitby area), but the flower are fresh and totally reasonable. If you read my previous Spring post, you know that I always put a penny in my tulips to make them stand up. Why you ask? Because when I was little my mom told me to, so that's what I've always done.
As much as I love tulips, they are cut flowers, and cut flowers die, so I also got some succulents and a potted arrangement in the hopes that i can keep them alive. To me it doesn't say spring unless you have new life blossoming, and since mother nature wont let us do that outside yet it seems only fair to bring the flowers indoors.
How do you get ready for Spring? Are you interested in hearing about my Spring cleaning tips and tricks?
