Did you know skincare should change with the seasons? Of course it should! As the weather changes, our skin needs different routines from us. When we go on holiday, we find ourselves wearing less make-up, leaving our hair as it’s natural wavy self and altogether being more as God intended us. There’s a reason for that. Not only is it less effort but it makes sense in the sun. So, as Spring finally appears, what do we need to change?

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Gel Cream/1.7 oz.

Moisturizer

Our poor faces have been riddled with cold weather and dry heat from inside heating and car heaters. It’s time to get the moisture back into our skin without it being sucked right back out. Go for a cream that has a healing or protective element to it. Moisturizers with vitamin E are perfect.

Take Sunblock Everywhere

Our Spring months are becoming more and more unpredictable. It’s possible to have snow on the mountains and a heat wave in the same week these days. You never really know when you’ll need sunblock but it’s so important for your skin. Having the best sunblock for your face and neck areas when you’re out about will be handy.

Cleanse and Exfoliate

We’re often outside for longer during the Spring and Summer months. The days seem longer because we have more light and it’s much more fun. However, this means that we’re more likely to pick up additional grime and bacteria on our skin. Good cleansers and exfoliators will be vital to keeping your skin clean and glowing. Cleanse with a gentle cleanser twice a day, and exfoliate with a natural exfoliator three times a week.

Eye Cream

Have you noticed yourself squinting a lot more recently? Or perhaps reaching for the sunglasses? Of course, we’re exposed to more sun this time of year which can mean our eyes take a battering. Investing in a decent eye cream will do those little black bags wonders. It will also work towards stopping any fine lines from developing. Top tip – Use an anti-wrinkle eye cream, no matter what age you are!

Make-up Shopping

Now here’s one we can all get on board with! Make-up shopping! As the seasons change, so does our make-up. We tend to go for lighter tones and lighter foundations as the sun comes out. While you’re shopping, keep in mind that it’s a good idea to look for make-up that provides sun protection too. I just made sure my “everyday face” routine included an SPF since I know I’ll be out in the sun more.

Updating Your Wardrobe

You may be wondering what that has to do with your skin routine, but a lot of your wardrobe does, especially your accessories. For example, a hat that covers your head and shades your neck will give you protection when the sun is out. Dodgy sun burns are not a good look and certainly not good for your health. Make sure you have suitable hats, sunglasses, shoes and cover-ups that will serve you well in any scenario.

No matter what you do to update your skincare for Spring, be sure to enjoy the season!

I cannot stress this enough, and I’ve said it before: if I could only wear one style for the rest of my life, striped cotton dresses would be it. And they would likely all be from Old Navy. I’ve honestly been wearing Old Navy striped dresses for the past two days. Not only are they easy AF and hold up forever, but I can consistently slip into one and Kendall will be like, “you look beautiful!” No fuss, but much reward.

And I’ve always been a dress girl. I think it would confuse people when I was younger because while most girls opted for jeans or shorts on out-of-uniform days, I reached for a sun dress. After swim team practice- same thing. I’ve just always felt the most myself in a dress. I may not always know how to properly girl, complaining about heels most female would laugh at, but a good dress will win over jeans every time. Pair with a sweet pair of flats or a cute sneaker- I’m set. It’s my uniform, and I’m sticking with it.

I tweeted about this a few days ago, but for whatever reason, I find myself dressing more preppy in spring. This started in high school, and I have no idea why. I didn’t even know I was doing it until a friend of mine told me he was glad about it- he wasn’t a huge fan of my band shirt/ tutu combos. But it was true, I did trade in my skinny jeans and skate shoes for Rainbow flip flops + J. Crew shorts. Something about warmer weather made me want to dress more streamlined. In the fall it’s like how many layers can I possibly put into one outfit and then in the spring it’s like ok how can I wear less but still not freeze on the chilly days? I put together my top basics for the season in both splurge + save, and frankly, I like the entire save side better. But the looks are ultimately the same. What do you think?

Last week, I brought you my gifts for guys. This week, I’m showing love to my GALentines. Before our girl Leslie Knope made it popular, I was hosting little dinners for my best gal-pals in high school around Valentine’s Day. My family has belonged to Montgomery Country Club since I was in kindergarten, and they always helped me set up the cutest events- big or small. For this particular dinner, we bought in balloons + decor, plus they made us a special, personalized menu.

Not saying you have to go all out and host a dinner, but I do think it’s important to remember the ladies who make a positive impact on your life- supporting, uplifting, and generally making your world a brighter place. I know that Valentine’s Day is often dismissed as being created by card + candy companies, but I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again- there is nothing wrong with any day that is marked by the message of love.

SUMMER ESSENTIALS

There are some summer essentials that none of us can go without. Stocking up on these first might just help you get in the sunny state of mind you’re after. It’ll ease you into things! Of course, sunglasses are a must.  Get familiar with the best ones around from sites like http://www.sunglasspicks.com/women/. Review sites can be a huge help when you’re first trying to get to grips with up and coming fashions. Sunglasses aren’t the only essential you’ll need. Stock up, too, on bikinis, sandals and strap tops. The good news about all these essentials is that they’re relatively stable from season to season. You could even pull out last year’s bits and see if they would work this year too!

GET FAMILIAR WITH THE FASHION

As soon as we get used to one fashion season, there’s another one coming in. That’s right, I’m afraid; it’s time to get to grips with the new style. Shops start putting out the summer stuff as soon as the Christmas sales are over. Don’t waste time. Even if you don’t feel like buying yet, looking around will give you an idea of what’s on trend. That way, you can look through last year’s wardrobe and decide what needs replacing. Window shopping isn’t the only way to see what’s coming up, either. Follow favorite designers and fashion shows to gain a better idea of what’s happening. Look, too, at fashion blogs like www.thefashionspot.com. That way, you can keep up to date with various designers in one easy place.

GET SHOPPING

Once you’ve restocked your essentials, it’s time to get shopping. There are many benefits to shopping before summer hits. A lot of the time, you’ll be able to get some bargains as the clothes aren’t in demand. You’ll also be able to get some pieces that might not stay in shops for long. While everyone else is looking through the sales racks, you’ll be grabbing the best new season stock. Then, you’ll be able to rest easy that you won’t see anyone else in that outfit when summer comes! If you don’t fancy going out in the cold to find your summer dresses, snuggle up at home and shop online.

After following these steps, you’ll be well set for when summer rolls around. And trust us, it’ll roll around a lot sooner than you think. Seasons always do. By getting ahead, you’re sure to be the trendsetter in your friendship group!
