The 'I Heart Spring' Tag!

I was tagged by my amazingly talented blogger and now Youtuber friend (hehe... this tag was her first ever YT video...woohoo!) Ashlee from makingupashlee to do the I <3 Spring Tag. I know Ashlee would be beyond happy if you guys watched her video and subscribed to her channel - click here to watch her take on the tag! Realizing I hadn't done a tag in quite some time, I decided to share my spring favorites with you through this fun questionnaire! :)

1. Favorite spring nail polish?
I have been loving 'Violet Voltage', which is part of Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear line. Read my review on it here!

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?

I have been gravitating a lot towards Revlon's Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout (shade #002), a gorgeous baby pink that has a blue undertone...LOVE!

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!
Well, since I live in Canada and our spring has been unusually chilly, I have not been wearing any dresses - blaming it on the weather!

4. What's your favorite flower?

I really like the smell of the flowering lilac tree in my backyard (which has yet to blossom this year, again our spring has just kicked into gear), so I guess I will give the lilac my favorite title in the flower category :)

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?

BIG scarf lover, I alternate between my American Eagle striped scarf and a dark blue flower pattern scarf that I got from Aritzia! I just can't pick...

The scarf by Aritzia has the same exact flower pattern as this blouse :)
6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)
Definitely the emerald green trend, which is huge in fashion right now. Emerald skirts, dresses, blouses, jewelry...I'm loving it all! Of course I'd get excited - green's my favorite color ;)

7. Favorite spring candle?
Same one I've been burning throughout winter: All American Apple Pie by Home Baked...smells just like Apple Pie that is fresh out of the oven! YUM!

8. Favorite body spray/perfume for spring?

Dove's Go Fresh Body Mist in Nectarine and White Ginger - smells heavenly :)
9. What is spring like where you live?
It's been rather cold, all of the snow melted, but we then got a snowstorm two weeks ago that left 30 cm behind, so spring has just arrived with the snow gone for good now and us reaching our first 20 degree daytime high today. Yup, it may sound crazy but I still had to keep the winter coat handy up until last week!

10. What's your favorite thing about spring?

Hearing the birds chirping and seeing the flowers blossom, taking long walks outside and not having my fingers freeze (lol), and people generally seeming to be in a better mood because the winter blues are in the past and summer is fast approaching!

11. Are you a spring cleaner?

Yes, as soon as finals are over, a major spring cleaning session will ensue, and I'm actually looking forward to it haha!

12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?

Nothing planned for this spring, but I will be going to the States in the summer! Can't wait!!

I tag all of you to do this tag! Please share it with me if you end up doing it, I'd love to read it! :)
