Spring is in the air! It’s finally warm, the pastels are out in full blast, I haven’t had to wear big fuzzy socks in a while now, and best of all? Spring and summer jackets. April 25th is coming up and all you need is a light jacket, so make sure you have your parka tucked away and your light-weight jackets out!
Take a break from spring cleaning your house and yard with my favourite things this month (almost as good as Oprah’s…maybe…no one gets a car).
While I usually start some of my seeds in March, April is when I really get going. This year, I used a greenhouse and having been loving it. We keep our house cooler in the winter, so it was amazing to have a space for my seedlings to be kept warm and grow.
I was gifted my greenhouse, but you can spend under $50 and order a greenhouse off of Amazon. This one here is similar to mine, but it’s taller rather than as wide.
If I thought using a greenhouse was amazing, grow lights made everything so much easier! I have tons of seedlings on my kitchen table and pots always on the go on my window-sill – I even had to make a shelf for MORE herbs and veggies, see here. My seedlings were happily getting a lot of afternoon light, but the grow lights helped out when our days were still getting dark around 6. Next year, I can start things off in the basement!
Oh.Em.Gee. I found an amazing cosmetics company that actually does good in the world. Easy, low-waste re-fillable cosmetics! Buy a bamboo palette and fill ‘er up with all your favourite goodies. The lipsticks come in a bamboo tube instead of a plastic one, and honestly, they make you feel pretty damn fancy. Best of all, they’re a Canadian company.
My favourites: Bloom Lipstick and Abyss – Contour (which I use as a bronzer).
These things are so damn cute! You can make so many crafts with them, no matter the season. I made an adorable spring wreath a few weeks back and will be doing a little something with doilies later on.
They cost next to nothing and you can get as creative as you want!
It’s finally dress WITHOUT tights weather! Let all the bright white legs out there rejoice! I wore a dress without tights a few days ago and it felt fabulous. I can’t wait to start wearing my spring and summer dresses! Unsure of the shoes to wear with your spring dress? Check out my round-up of the cutest spring shoes here.
