Spring, a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be.
It’s been a long winter but spring if finally here! Spring is my favourite time of the year because it feels like a fresh start. So naturally I’m looking for ways to refresh my routines and brighten up my home and create a space that exudes positive vibes and wellness. Here are a few of the ways that I’m welcoming spring.
Let my skin breathe
The winter months tend to bring out the redness in my skin so naturally I use more makeup to conceal those imperfections. But warmer temps are kinder to my skin and give me the opportunity to use less makeup and let my skin shine through. It also helps to have a great skincare routine for healthy skin.
Adopt beachy tresses
What is it about the warmer months that makes you want to break out the beach sprays? I love beachy waves and getting the look is all about the right products. Right now I’m loving the Joico Beach Shake spray. It gives me that beachy look I love without the crunchiness. How? It’s made with coconut oil, sunflower seed oil and beeswax to nourish hair. This one is for medium to thick hair, but there’s also a volumizing formula for my fine hair gals. Plus, it smells like summer in a bottle. I’m in love!
Pay attention to labels
Lately I’ve been more conscious of the products I’m using and paying attention to ingredients, opting for more natural products, whether it’s food, cleaning products or beauty products. One o the brands I’ve been loving is Rocky Mountain Soap Company. First of all, they are a Canadian brand (always love supporting local businesses). Second, all their products are a 100% natural, toxin-free so you know they will be good to your skin I’m especially loving the oil and hand cream which both smell divine. Also worth checking out are their bath bombs (amazing!).
Surround myself with plants
I’ve become something I never thought I would be… a plant lady! But here’s why that’s a good thing – they help purify the air, they make your space more beautiful and if you add flowers in the mix they brighten up a room with their sweet scents. My favourites right now are tulips, but I really don’t discriminate. I love all plants and flowers!
