I absolutely adore this time of the year. I always say I am a Summer baby, but I think I’m more a of a Spring person. It’s not too hot and it’s not as cold anymore (hope I don’t jinx it) – it’s like Goldilocks porridge – just right.
I feel giddy at the fact that for the very first time in my life – I officially live at the beach. I am going to experience my very first Summer living at the coast.
Oh my goodness. Every cell in my body is doing a happy dance.
This is what I am looking forward to:
The feeling that it brings. Freshness, renewal. New beginnings and opportunities.
The beach. I am used to the beach being a “holiday” vibe. I am really going to have to get my head around the fact that it’s not holiday – it’s not packing the car, cooler box and heading off for a day… it’s grabbing sun screen, a towel and heading for an hour or 2 and then heading home. It’s realising that it’s here permanently and not just for 7 – 10 days (holiday time.)
It’s meeting friends on the beach for picnics and lounging around. It’s romantic walks on the beach and picnics with my man whenever we want. Bliss.
Watermelon. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into the juicy sweetness.
Sundowners with friends. With the sun going down later, our Summer days are going to be longer and juicier 😉
Tans. I feel so much sexier, healthier, thinner and so much better when I have some colour. I recently had a Caribbean spray tan done just because I couldn’t handle seeing my see-through Casper the ghost skin anymore. It’s amazing how I instantly feel revived.
Also… Brown fat always looks better than white fat.
Bright colours. Coral, mint green and Turquoise are my favourite colours. They’re also back for Spring and Summer. Bright yellows and oranges are also hot. Floral print is back in full force and crisp white sundresses are perfect for any sun kissed girl.
This trend: Lace shorts that can be dressed up or down…
Fresh flowers and seeing buds on trees and bushes.
Spring has sprung and I hope you’re feeling as festive as I am.
