Seriously, I’m in need of a season change. Although “spring” arrived on the calendar, it’s still been cold and blustery here in Ottawa. That being said, I’m currently craving things that emulate spring in all sorts of ways.
1. Spring Cosmetics
It’s time to leave behind the dark nails and make-up routines and brighten things up. I’m in love with Essie nail polish, which I’ve blogged about many times before, and their new Spring 2014 Collection is making me drool. Also, I’m definitely into rosy cheeks (not brought on by the cold!) and The Body Shop’s blush has always been one of my favourites. They’ve recently revived their make up collection and it’s better than ever. Check out this tutorial on applying blush like a pro.
2. Spring Salad
I am currently obsessed with Fattoush salad. This Arabic salad is my go-to, as of late and I’m craving it on the regular. I’ve been buying it at this teeny café by my work for a few weeks now, but I’m planning to make my own version at home, relying on this recipe to help me. It’s time to leave behind the hearty winter meals we’ve been leaning towards and making our way back to seasonal, fresh, veggies.
3. Exploring the Outdoors
I am so excited to be able to go running outdoors without having to bundle up. And this long-sleeved, light-weight, running shirt is the perfect spring colour to help motivate you to get your but off the couch and out the door. These running shoes have more support than those that I wear for indoor training and are perfect for pounding the pavement.
