Spring Essentials- Spring Home Decor Ideas

I hope you have enjoyed my Spring Essentials Series. Today I wanted to share with you what I do to change up my home decor for Spring. Its nothing big, but I think the little changes make a difference. As you already know if you have been reading my blog for a bit is that my motto is LESS is MORE. I haven't always haven't been this way, but simplifying has made a huge difference for me.

I don't typically decorate for Easter, but I had to have this cute little bunny and Easter banner from Target. The bunny I will leave up all spring and then take down the cute banner after Easter. I just loved the bright colors of the banner, and I have a problem when it comes to banners I just love them.

I love fresh flower especially in the spring. Grab a bunch at the grocery store and find a cute jar and you can make a room go from drab to fab in an instance. (in my opinion) They are bright and smell yummy.  I pull out all my greenery in the spring. Everywhere you look there will be some kind of potted plant. :) They just look so fresh and pretty.

This year I used these bowls from Target to add a little bit of color to my kitchen for spring.  I think if you displayed all white dishes that would be great for spring to.  Another element that I love to add during spring is galvanized things. Like these letters and the little pots that I put my green plants in.

Its pretty basic, but sometimes all you need are a few things to change things up. Honestly I can't find my tub of spring decorations after moving so I am working with what I have, but I absolutely LOVE the simplicity of it. Adding a little color and different textures will make a big difference.

Spring Beauty Essentials

Day 2 of my Spring Essential Series is my Beauty Essentials. In the spring time I go for a fresh look. I like it simple and minimal. 

1. I really like using a CC Cream or a Light weight foundation in the spring time. This CC from It Cosmetics is really nice its light weight but still has great coverage. I did a full review on it here if you want to know more about it. 

2. Fun spring colored nail polish. In the spring time I go for lighter pinks, mint blues, and more natural colors for my nails.

3. Waterproof mascara is a must for the Spring. You maybe going to the beach or to the pool and you don't want your mascara running down your face. I also like it because I have allergies in the spring and my eyes are constantly watering. 

4. Like I said I like fresh looking make up and these Loreal eyeshadows are perfect. You can just apply them with your finger really quick and they last all day. They are SUPER pigmented. The Amber Rush and the Iced Latte are my favorite. 

5. I like to wear a more brighter blush in the spring time. This Dandelion Blush from Benefit is just the perfect pink for spring time. It gives your face a brighter look with out being over the top. LOVE IT. 

6. The NYX Butter Glosses are one of all time favorites and they are easy to apply and they are pigmented just enough. I like brighter colors and nudes for spring time.

7. Jergens BB Body is an all year around favorite, but its perfect for Spring when you don't quite have a tan yet, but still are wearing capris or shorts and you want you legs to look really nice. 

What are some of your Spring time beauty essentials? Come back Friday for the last day in the Spring time series. See how I spruce up my home for Spring.

Spring Fashion Essentials

The first day of Spring was just a few days ago. I thought it would be fun to do a little Spring Essentials series. So thats what I am going to be doing this week. First up today is Fashion. I love the transition from Winter to Spring wardrobe.

I am kinda a plain jane when it comes to my wardrobe. I love wearing just basic pieces and then accessorizing.  So I love a pretty colorful statement necklaces and bracelets. They can really make a plain T-shirt look good. :) Adding a little colored purse into your wardrobe will make you outfit look fresh. I find that this blue color goes pretty well with anything.  Having a pair of sunnies is essential anytime of the year.

My tops include basic solid color t-shirts gray being on of my favorites. Cardigans are a must in the spring time. I love that you can get these in all different colors depending on the season. I wear chambray shirts all year around, but I love the classic white pants and denim shirt for spring. Since it can be a little chilly a cute sweatshirt is nice to have.

When it comes to jeans for the Spring I start to pull out my colored jeans more often. I still wear a good solid pair of denim jeans, but its fun to mix it up with color. 

Depending on where you live you can wear sandals in the Spring. Here in Las Vegas its already over 80 so I have been wearing sandals. These ones are my all time favorites I just keep buying them and was so excited to see that target had them again this year.  A cute pair of flats are great for Spring time to. 

Like I said I really like basics.  I still wear patterns and different textures, but for my EVERYDAY go to things these are the things I wear.  

Come back this week for the other parts of this Spring Essentials Series.
