Getting ready to look Springtastic!

The time is finally here to pull out your florals and your pastel colored raincoats! Are you as excited as I am? The flowers are starting to show and I thought I should share something with you to make your smile bloom with it. Spring is one of my favorite seasons in New York City. The Cherry Blossoms are all over Central Park and Park Avenue has planted their Tulips in anticipation for the season. As you can tell, I am taking five minute breaks to skip around the room because of how excited I am.

I just spent the last hour of my time unpacking all my floral prints to put on for the season. I love color, although my job does not always permit me to wear it, I do get to sport my love for it through makeup! The bright lipsticks, the pastel new eyeshadows and now with the new hair color craze I guess that is one way to show your love for color as well! Through this post I wanted to explore the endless possibilities Spring brings us when it comes to fashion and beauty! 

As I mentioned before, I love floral prints, the dresses, the skirts. This is the season to finally start giving up our black, grey and white color wardrobe in exchange for the pastels. I know most people discourage loud makeup if you are in bold attire. But hey, where is the fun in that? Spring is perfect season to choose the wardrobe you like to represent your personal style. For example, you maybe the gal who typically prefers to be dressed in jeans and a t-shirt. Yes, it is comfortable and easy, but that does not mean the t-shirt cannot be replaced with a floral t-shirt. I also love that this is the time you could explore different styles. You may not be someone who loves wearing a skirt. This does not mean you have to step away from the florals, because taking a page out of Gucci, they launched some gorgeous bright bold colored pantsuits with some amazing prints. Yes, we cannot all afford Gucci, but there are quite a few stores such as, Asos which carry some similar styled outfits which include jumpsuits.

Of course with these colorful outfits you can always make it pop even more by taking a few risks with your makeup. Such as, the Marc Jacobs Beauty, Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner. The gorgeous bold color scheme liner will help you outline your eyes to match your colorful outfits as well as highlight one of your key features, your pretty eyes. Also I love Kat Von D’s everlasting liquid lipsticks, which has some great colors for all skin tones such as backstage bambi, susperia and a go-go. They are bright, bold and gorgeous! Let’s not forget to mention some of the hottest hair trends for the Spring which we are seeing on every celebrity. Lighter colors as well as the LOB. Think this is something which would catch on? There are plenty of moments I feel like I should just chop my long locks off. But you know how much I love styling it in multiple different ways.
