Chase away your winter blues...

Today is the first official day of spring and it's time to celebrate! The days will be warmer, the days will be filled with sunshine, and it's time to chase away your winter blues! It feels like winter was extra long this year and I, for one, am so excited for the flowers to start blooming (hello peonies!) and for pretty dresses and not having to wear twelve layers of clothes just to run to the mailbox.

Valentine's Day will be here soon, so I thought I would round up some fun little gifts ideas for BFFs. I also might add, own or want a few (or all) of these items;)  1. I am absolutely in love with Ferris and Char Char Cosmetics! They make amazing makeup and donate 10% of all sales to animal rescues; I love the lip glosses! Doing good while shopping, what's not to love?  2. I am a huge fan of Emily McDowell and if I'm ever sharing a gift guide, there is a good chance something for her line will appear in...

Winter Favorites

I love the idea of winter...sweaters, hot cocoa, snow; I love to spend time on Pinterest (probably more than I should) pinning coats and scarves I would love to add to my winter wardrobe. I love pinning soup recipes that sound perfect for winter nights. When the winter boots hit the stores, I drool over the ones I would love to add to my collection.  It all sounds so perfect until that first bitterly cold day and I start hating winter all over again and begin the countdown to spring.
