I ♥ Spring Tag

I was tagged to do this post by the lovely Mia over at Mia Alice, thank you! 

1. Favourite spring nail polish?
I'm pretty much in love with all the Barry M Gelly Nail Polishes at the moment, therefore my choice will be those with the shades Pomegranate and Papaya being right at the top. 
2. What is your must-have lip colour this spring?
 Revlon Lip Butter in 'Juicy Papaya' if you haven't picked it up already you must, I'm smitten with it. 
3. Show us your favourite spring dress!
 I can't show you as to be honest I'm not a dress kinda girl, I prefer my skirts if I'm honest. One particular skirt which I think is beautiful is this from Free People. 
4. What's your favourite flower?
 I don't have a favourite as there are so many I like, with some of them being Tulips, Daffodils, Sunflowers and Calla Lilies. 
5. Favourite spring scarf/accessory?
 I have a scarf from H&M from the new conscious collection, it has a huge jungle scene all across with a nice bright toucan on it, it's so pretty I'm scared to use it. 
6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Make-up, fashion or both!)
 None in particular to be honest, I don't tend to follow trends as I like to be comfortable in my own thing however, I'm really liking monochrome...although that doesn't make me think of spring. 
 7. Favourite spring candle?
University student here living in a teeny weeny room, no candles allowed, not unless I want to cause the whole building to vacate due to alarms setting off. I do like candles though and I look forward to buying some for my first home in the summer. One can tell that this is very much a beauty blogger tag ;) 
8. Favourite body spray/perfume for spring?
 I like to use Huge Boss Orange as I find it really light and refreshing, other than that I do like the Body Shop Body Mists, with Satsuma being my favourite. 
9. What is spring like where you live?
 Here at university it isn't very exciting, I'm in a city area where there's lots of traffic and noise. However, back home it is such a nice place to be during spring as I live close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which has so much wildlife on, it's quiet and peaceful. I miss it a lot!
10. What's your favourite thing about spring?
I'm going to say longer days as whilst coming home from work during the winter it is dark and miserable, whereas when spring arrives the evenings are lighter and I can also leave my coat at home as it is warming up. I also like seeing all the lambs in the field, it's a lovely warm feeling. 
11. Are you a spring cleaner?
I'm a spring, summer, autumn and winter cleaner! Joking aside, I'm always cleaning, I drive my family mad as I like to de-clutter quite a lot. In fact only today I 'spring cleaned' my make-up collection and got rid of a few pieces that were rather questionable. 
12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?
Not at the moment as I'm still at university and I will be for another three weeks or so, however I'm hoping to visit Edinburgh one last time before my boyfriend moves out of his flat so that will be a nice little break. There is no upcoming vacation as money is being saved this summer where my life will change dramatically as I will be flat hunting with my boyfriend in London, I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. 

I hope you enjoyed reading this. 

I tag every single one of you! 
 Let me know if you do this tag, I'd love to have a read.

p.s if anybody has advice for finding a place to live in London please let me know :)
