Lavender Love & A Guest Post!

nullnullnull

Hi loves! Hope you all woke up in a light and cheery mood today.

This time of year the same thing always happens to me. After months of wearing dark shades I'm suddenly craving the lighter side of things. Light and pretty and feminine and delicate. Like lavender. There's something so calming about the color but also hopeful and happy. And that's what we all need a bit of this time of year, isn't it?

Oh and if you have a chance, stop on by the lovely A Brit Greek today where I am sharing about what it's like to be a Cosmetic Product Developer :)

Wishing you all a happy day!

xoxo

Same thing happens to me! I usually start by wearing bright colors on my toes and fingers - a springy mani in the middle of winter is a good pick me up :)

Adele said...

I love lavender as a scent too, it's so calming. Happy Thursday Dawn xoxo
