Spring Fling


I am feeling pretty excited about the upcoming season if you haven’t already guessed. I thought I would put together a little collection of things I am excited about this Spring!!


EOS Lip Balm Strawberry Sorbet is my go to lip balm for most seasons. However, this lip balm is truly a Spring product in my eyes. The pastel colour of the container, the smoothness and fruitiness of the balm, and also the ease that you can swipe it on and forget about it, all screams spring. I wish they could invent smell-o-net so you could smell how good this is!


I featured this nail polish, OPI A Grape Fit in the previous post, but I couldn’t resist adding it to this collection. It’s such an amazing colour and the formula is just UGH utterly perfect. If I could recommend ONE nail polish from OPI it would probably be this one. It’s very wearable and just..ugh. The fact that this polish made me ‘ugh’ twice is probably enough to realise that I am in love with it.


My favourite Spring scent is Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs. It’s very similar to Daisy (obv.) but it’s just that bit lighter and fresher. I actually prefer it to Daisy *ducks from flying shoes of readers*. The bottle is also perfect for Spring to put on your vanity. It’s like having a vase of fresh flowers every day!


With the weather warming up, it means that feet are coming out of boots and closed in shoes. That means you need to transform your hooves into something less terrifying (if you are anything like me). I will be using this Bloom Peppermint Foot Balm to nourish and soothe my feet and blisters from all those crampy boots. The scent is super fresh and it really feels relaxing to rub your tootsies with this!


New from the Lust Have It Box in August is the Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights Face Illuminator in Pink Rose. It has a similar colour and consistency to Benefit High Beam, without the price tag! I’ve used this a couple of times and I think it is definitely going to become my new highlighter when I run out of High Beam.


I have been using Benefit ‘Feelin’ Dandy’ Kit for a while now (see here for a review) and it will continue to be used in full swing with Spring. All products in here are perfect for a soft, romantic look this season.


I am not normally a lip gloss girl but this one may have changed my mind! The L’Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Glossy Stain in Lolita is the perfect pinky-nude lip with just the right amount of shine for a cool Spring day. I really love the applicator on this because it’s a big bigger (and if you’ve seen my lips, you’ll know why I prefer this!)


I am also keen to get back into baking! I love making sugary treats and this book of desserts has an entire section just on chocolate decadency. Lordy lord have mercy!

Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes


With Spring just around the corner, I’ve been eyeing off my pastel bright colours a lot more frequently! Here are my five favourites that I think are going to feature a lot this Season on my pointers and piggies.


OPI A Grape Fit is the perfect purple nail polish. It’s a beautiful opaque colour that reminds me of Hubba Bubba grape bubblegum (the best flavour of course). You can’t go wrong with a lavender purple, especially in the warmer months.


Essie Mojito Madness is a delicious lime/mint green. The colour of life and renewal, I of course had to include it in this post! I am thinking of teaming this with a silver glitter accent nail for a little extra sparkle.


This Bloom Nail Polish in Cyndi is a great orange hue, and really brightens up toes for a peek of colour. This formula could be a touch more opaque but it’s such a gorgeous creamy colour that I will let it slide :)


Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish in Instyle Coral is THE coral colour for this spring. It looks amazing on both fingers and toes. The brush is also fantastic for application! It will definitely be featuring on this blog in the future, keep your eyes peeled.


The last nail polish is another Rimmel London Lasting Finishing Colour - in the I <3 Fruities collection. The colour is Lemon Drop and is an amazing pastel yellow colour that reminds me of daisies :) These Rimmel London Nail Polishes are also dirt cheap at Priceline for Aussies!

What are your picks for this Spring?

Stay Minty!
