Spring Favorites

Okay, real talk, for whatever reason I spend way more money in the spring than I do in any other season. The warm weather makes me want to treat myself literally all. of. the. time. It's not so great for my wallet or my saving for NYC (read all about that crazy adventure here!) but it's perfect for the blog! In fact, yesterday I went back up to the register after checking out because I found a clutch that would "be perfect for photo shoots". So in lieu of all my recent purchases, I decided to bring you a few of my favorites for the springtime!








URBAN DECAY EDEN EYESHADOW PRIMER
I used to use the original UD eyeshadow primer religiously, but once I found the Eden, matte primer I haven't been able to go back. Fun fact, I have such veiny eye lids (super cute) and I need to pile on eyeshadow to make myself look less like a corpse. My base shadow is gone hella fast because of this and, as much as I love spending money, this girl can't afford to keep buying entire pallets for ONE BASE COLOR. Needless to say, Eden has come in clutch and I am forever in love.




OSEA ATMOSPHERE PROTECTION CREAM
Okay, ladies, the season of summer is right around the corner and our sun kissed skin won't appear without a little sweating. (yuum) If you're like me, foundation is hella light in the summer and forget about heavy moisturizers. Who needs all that when you're already sweating up a storm?? This protection cream gives your skin just the right amount of moisture without weighing you down. And it smells like heaven. No big deal.




PEONIES
I honestly haven't bought any of these for myself yet, but what better flower for the springtime?? I'm pretty surprised I haven't seen more of these beauties flooding my IG feed. If you've been anywhere near my Pinterest you know I'm obsessed. Bury me in peonies.


PARTING MY HAIR DOWN THE CENTER WITH BRAIDED PONY TAILS
(Whoa. What a title.) This has been such a game changer for me. I tweeted about this the other day, and one of my friends texted me saying the exact same thing! For the longest time I was terrified to part my hair down the center. #firstworldprobz It's a little risky, but it definitely pays off in the end. In fact, I went to work with my hair styled like this and I got so many compliments. Center part for the win.


BUCKET BAGS
These bags are so freakin' adorable! I haven't picked one up yet, but I'm seriously itching to. They're so different, yet simple and effortless. If you're in the market for a new purse, I would 100% check these out! Don't be surprised if you see me toting one around in upcoming photo shoots.
  





WHITE LACE DRESSES
Something about spring always makes me want to wear a white lace dress-- one that's modest but still flirty and fun. I found a few on Red Dress Boutique and I'm trying to hold out as long as I can before I break down and order one. They're seriously adorable and perfect for the spring season!
      





ANKLE STRAP HEELS
For whatever reason, I always thought this type of heal wasn't cute or it just wouldn't look cute on me. I have pretty wide feet and I like my heels to hide that fact-- not accentuate it. The other day, though, I saw an adorable pair of blush heels in this style and I knew I had to try them for the spring season. I am seriously obsessed! I don't know why I ever thought they were anything less than fabulous.
          





TANGELOS
Why did I just discover these yesterday?? For those of you as in the dark as I was, tangelos are a mix between tangerines and grapefruits. WHAT? Mindblow. And to answer your question, yes, they are delicious.


HOT YOGA @ AMAZING YOGA
When I was back home last month my little sister took me to hot yoga with her. I loved the class, but I had no idea where to find a studio here in Pittsburgh. Two weeks ago some of my friends from work introduced me to Amazing Yoga and I've been hooked ever since! The flow for class is constantly changing and the skill set varies from beginner to expert. I legitimately ask every person I'm slightly friends with to feel my newly formed muscles. My traps are pretty impressive.. If you need a relaxing, but hella effective workout you should try hot yoga. Fo sho.
