Hello spring |

 Hello lovelies, 
Its officially spring now and I couldn't be happier. As much as I love the cold winter months, I was getting a little bored of wearing a coat or a jumper. Spring time for me is so lovely, I feel like at this point in the year I've already made the worst decisions so normally this means I can start a fresh and really focus.


So here are the bits I love about spring, these are just little bits and bobs but its what I like most about it. I hope you enjoy reading it. Let me know in the comments what your favourite thing about spring is.

Nature | 


As much as I love watching the leaves fall of the trees, turing into a crunchy little adventure under my feet, I love watching everything blossom. Everything just has new life and its so interesting to me, just to watch over the course of a few weeks or months the blossom turn into gorgeous flowers. Our family might just be really lazy but the spring is the time when my dad gets out the lawn mower, the sight of freshly cut grass is so satisfying for me. Its at this time of year when my hay fever isn't that bad so I can enjoy the nature, the smell of freshly cut grass, the blossom on the trees and early mornings that I can hear the birds chirping away.

Summers on the way |


Even though summer isn't my favourite time of year, spring means its finally on the way. For me summer reminds me of the memories I made when I was little, me, my aunt and uncle and my little cousins. During the summer my cousins are free from school for six weeks, that means if I can drag them away from their games consoles, we can go out on little adventures. Last year we had a beach day, we went to the park, the arcades and we just had the most amazing time. Time with these three not so little anymore humans is my favourites. My cousins (The three children of my mums sister) are more like sisters and a brother to me. Because I'm that little bit older I feel really protective over them. I love spending the summer with them in the pool, going out and really getting to know them more. That sounds silly but they're changing everyday and I love talking to the young adults they've become and I love spending time acting like a child with my five year old cousin. 

Longer days | 


Soon the clocks will go forward and even though that means for one day we get an hour less in bed, it also means that the sun will shine outside for longer and it will feel really nice again. I don't know if anyone else feels like this, but when its still light until 9 I feel like its really time to just relax. I like going for walks when it should be dark, its lighter earlier and darker much later. It feel like we get so much more from each day and I love it.

The sun |


Even thought the sun makes an appearance over winter, spring is the time when we really start to feel the benefits. I love walking to work in just my shirt (Obviously trousers as well, but just with no coat), feeling the sun on my skin and being able to wear my sunglasses. I got a new pair last week and I'm dying to wear them. Somehow I don't think they'll look as good with my snazzy red work uniform but I think I can make it work. This also means that pub lunches in cute beer gardens are acceptable, I want to go out with my friends and just have a nice time. Make some memories with the people I love the most.

Florals |


I am a big fan of floral clothing but I don't think everyone shares this love. In spring I think its actually acceptable to start wearing my floral clothes, there's nothing more satisfying than putting on my favourite floral shirt, a pair of skinny jeans (I don't buy them, normal jeans just cling to my thighs so I class that as skinny) and a nice pair of sandals. I also have a floral kimono, I don't think anyone else likes it but I think its just so pretty. That will definitely be worn a few times this season.
