HAPPY EASTER! It's finally starting to feel like spring and if you read my last post, you'll know that I am pretty excited about it. When it comes to the warmer months, I find my color palette changing and I look forward to discovering new items that allow me to feel immersed in the season. My favorites are made up of exactly these things! And you can WIN THEM ALL! (Read how to enter and take home everything I've written about here, at the bottom of this post.)
Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die" is not a new release, but it's an album I find myself listening to every single year. As soon as the sun starts shining and I feel relatively warm, I pop my sunglasses on and play tracks like "Off to the Races" and "Diet Mountain Dew". With your window rolled down, this is the PERFECT spring/summer album and I'm excited to include the vinyl edition in this giveaway!
If you're a fan (obsessor) of Bath & Body Works candles like me, you'll know that they put out new scents in new packaging every year! The candle that I have been burning non-stop since February is White Gardenia. I'm on my 3rd one! As soon as I lit it, i began to realize that gardenia is the note that I have always loved in all of my favorite perfumes. It's a rich, sweet, scent, but still feels fresh for your doors open, sun streaming in, spring days!
Speaking of perfumes, my go-to lately has been Gucci Bloom. This is a newer arrival and is absolutely gorgeous. Tuberose is the lead note in this scent and is followed by hints of jasmine and Chinese honeysuckle. The rollerball has a more concentrated, stronger scent than the spray bottle, which is great for long days at the office or late nights out! And since your girl is ballin' on a budget, that's what you'll find in the giveaway!
When it comes to feeling awake and ready for my day. there's only one thing that can truly help me get there. I am NOT a fan of mornings and because I don't drink coffee, I need something to give me a jolt. A few spritzes of my current favorite, Mario Badescu's Facial Spray, always does the trick! I don't like anything rose scented, so my favorite is the Aloe, Chamomile, and Lavendar spray. It's also moisturizing and can be used as dewy setting spray for after your makeup!
Winter can be hard on your face and skin, and my next two favorites will help you repair any damage that the harsh conditions have caused. First up are masks from my beloved YesTo. If you know me in real life, you'll have seen that my cabinets look like a very well-stocked shrine to this brand. Their ingredients are incredible and they have a large variety of lines that are all meant to help your skin in a different way. I'm currently obsessed with the Grapefruit Sleeping Mask and the Coconuts Powder-to-Clay Mask.
But masks aren't just for your face! To help with my extremely dry hair, I've been turning to a new release from Garnier Fructis, the 1 Minute Hair Mask. What I love about this is that you can use it in three different ways. It can be used (as its' title suggests) as a hair mask, but it can also be used as a regular conditioner OR a deep conditioning treatment! I've been loving it as the latter and have incoporated into my rountine on an every-other-day basis.
Finally, my apparent new found love is gardening! Specifically, in-home herb gardening! I'm currently growing basil, cilantro, and oregano on my kitchen windowsill for whatever I may cook up this spring! I'm really enjoying watching the plants grow and am excited to taste test soon! I'm loving it so much that whoever wins this giveway is going to win their own in-home gardening kit! I'm including ready-to-plant oregano, a seed-organizing box (that can also be used as a recipe box!) and matching gardening gloves! Too cute!
Now, I'm sure that you're ready to know how to win, right? It's simple! All you have to do is leave a comment below with your favorite thing about spring! SO easy! But, if you want TWO EXTRA ENTRIES, I've got you covered! If you subscribe to my newsletter, that's another entry. And following the instructions on this Instagram post will get you a third!
Best of luck!
