Spring is almost here and it's the best season of the year; not debatable. From stuffing our faces with Easter chocolate and enjoying our morning coffee order on-the-rocks, to taking our workouts into the garden and hanging a washing out in the fresh air (if you know you know) - we're so ready for it. Here are our top 8 things about spring...
It’s going to be a bittersweet goodbye to our duvet coats and UGG sliders, but we’ll take any excuse to crack out those cute spring outfits we’ve been desperate to wear (and our trusty denim jacket). Also in case you didn’t know, anything over 10°C and overcast in Britain is also classed as BBQ weather, so bring it on!
Mini Eggs eaten by the packet, golden Lindt bunnies, Crème Eggs in bulk – we’re here for it. If you’ve got kids even better, as they’ll never be able eat all those Easter eggs on their own…. right?
You know it’s spring when you come home from the ‘big shop’ every week with another bunch of tulips. Get ready for the return of pops of colour in the garden, buzzing bees and the smell of freshly bloomed plants.
Iced caramel latte season is officially on route! That first sip is the most refreshing feeling of all time, fact. Have a go at making your own this year! It’s so easy to whip up a batch of cold brew coffee to keep in the fridge, and you don’t need a fancy coffee machine to do it either.
The smell of Hawaiian Tropic, Birkenstocks, beach days, icy cold daquiris, the smell of BBQs in the air, garden parties, the sound of your suitcase wheels in the airport – are we selling it yet?
Ok, so the endless cleaning and tidying part might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but the satisfaction of spending time in your immaculate home is unbeatable! Remember to donate or sell clothes, toys or homeware items you no longer want instead of chucking them in the bin.
If there’s anything we can thank the pandemic for, it’s the rise of outdoor activities and the ‘driveway workout’. No gym membership? No problem! Take your yoga mat into the garden, go for a walk in the sun or cycle to the shop instead of taking the car and get your daily dose of Vitamin D.
There’s something cosy and magical about autumn and Christmas weddings, but you just can’t beat getting dressed up for a sunny shindig. Ceremonies on the beach, first dances under the stars, outdoor photos without the risk of getting soaked – unbeatable.
