Another snow storm. It may be beautiful, but all of this ice and slush has got me anxious for spring. So I thought I’d deliver a bit of whimsy and sunshine to you today. A few posts back I asked what keeps you glowing in this winter weather. Well for me, it’s the promise of Spring. Nothing says Spring more than flowers, fragrance and makeup. When I think flowers, I think Preston Bailey. I’ve had my eye on Mr. Bailey since seeing his fabulous creations on The Oprah Winfrey Show. His latest book, Celebrations, is truly a feast for the eyes.
Flowers and fragrance are like hand and glove, so for a nice fresh spring scent, I’ve spritzed a bit of Pretty, by Elizabeth Arden. This is a floral of course, and it has top notes of Italian Mandarin Orpur, Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar, Petalia, Pink Iris and Jacaranda Wood. Lean in. Just a bit closer. Ok. Doesn’t that smell like a spring day.
A spring look would not be complete without a little color on our cheeks. Check out this video. Lancome makeup artist, Alex Sanchez shows you how to get chic cheeks. A snow day is the perfect day to practice that new look.
