5 Things I'm Looking Forward To In Spring

Going Away: For the Spring bank holiday, my family and I are actually going to drive to Colmar which has to probably be the prettiest town in all of France. If you give it a quick google you're immediately inundated with adorable picturesque photos of colourful houses - can you think of anything more sprink-like? Think of the Instagram spam guys, get excited.

Spring Blog Content - I find shooting images around Autumn and Winter time the hardest thing ever. I'm rarely inspired by the props and it's just a pain to get good lighting the struggle. I'm excited to include all the pink,yellow and baby blues and all the tulips in my blog posts. My blog posts are already looking springy, mainly because I'm just SO READY to move away from the dark dingey posts.

Easter Baking - Easter is literally right around the corner and I have been stocking up on all the mini eggs and creme eggs! I really want to get back into baking on the blog, and Easter baking has so far been my favourite including my Caramel Chocolate Creme Egg Brownies  and Chocolate Easter Wreath. I'm going to be thinking of fun new different Easter recipes this year and really get back into my recipes on the blog.

The Weather - I've been loving the fact that I've been waking up to the sun and managing to see it when leaving the office as well! Don't get me wrong, Winter is fabulous, but I grow pretty tired of the long cold nights after Christmas and New Years. I'm ready for a little bit of Vitamin D and to wear my denim and leather jackets which brings me on to the last thing.....

The Clothes - I love Winter and Summer don't get me wrong, but I am definitely much more of a Spring person. With Spring you can layer, and still wear your jumpers and t-shirts without getting too cold/too hot. Don't get me wrong, I've been wearing my mom jeans throughout winter, but I'm excited to actually wear them with converse and a light jumper without being a human popsicle. With a couple of holidays planned during the Spring time, I always like to up-my-game and splurge on clothes as it's just that little bit more exciting when you know you can wear them abroad!
