Spring essentials and bucket list

Hi everyone,
I am happy to say that this post is my first colab post with the beautiful xpastelxxprincessx. Her blog link will be at the end of the post so don't forget to follow her, I think you will love her blog just as much as I do. Today's post will be on my spring essentials and some ideas to do in the spring holiday.

I am going to start with my makeup essentials.
Eyes: I think the natural look will be a massive trend this year. My essentials are very simple and basic. The eye shadow palette I have chosen is the W7 In the Nude palette. This palette is a great dupe for the Naked 3. The shades in this palette are very pink-toned, perfect for spring.
To go underneath the eye shadow, the Maybelline colour tattoos are the perfect base. Mine are in the shades on and on bronze, and permanent taupe. The shade that I think will go well with the palette even more is the one in pink gold but I don't have that one "yet", I am sure I will get it soon.
Eyeliner wise,  I would recommend the MUA intense eyeliner in Snow white. I think instead of wearing the same old black eyeliner to branch out and go for a brighter colour. I am a bit scared of bright colours so I stayed with a white but I think it's nicer than black.
Since in spring the weather gets warmer, a waterproof mascara is a must. I love the maybelline the Colossal mascara. It deferentially works and it was my favorites last year and I will probably love it again this year.
Lips: I have two options for this a bright and a neutral. For neutral the Revlon lacquer balm in demur and the Tanya Burr lip gloss in Just Peachy make the perfect combo. For a brighter option the Maybelline baby lips from the electro collection are perfect. I would recommended the ones in the shades pink shock and strike a rose. They are very pigmented and nourishing.
Face: I only have one but it is a must for me. The Natural collection blush in peach melba completes the perfect look. It is pigmented but suttle. This blush gives your skin the perfect glow.
Nails: This spring I will be wearing a lot of pastels on my nails. The ones I would recommended are the Barry M gelly hi-shine nail paint in prickly pear, Topshop nail polish in lost for words, Barry M quick dry nail paint in pit stop and the Maybelline colour show nail polish in mauve kiss.
Moving onto body.
The body products I will be using are the NSPA clementine ones. I got all of these in a massive set from Asda and I cannot wait to try them out. They smell amazing. I will let you know how I get on with them.
Now my favorite spring accessorizes.
Last year floral headbands were very trendy and I never bought one but this year I bought one super early. The one I bought is from New Look and I found it on the sale rack. I have also got into jewelry very recently, and my two favorite necklaces at the moment are both very pretty. The silver leaf is from New Look and the rose gold rose is from a boutique by where I live. 
Since spring is the season going into summer it's going to start getting more sunny outside so sunglasses are a must. My most recent pair are from Claire's and they are stunning. They were very inexpensive but are great quality.
Even though it will get sunnier it will still be chilly especially in England. This year to keep myself warm I will be wearing this gorgeous scarf from river island. I got this years ago but I am still in love with the print. It is so bohemian and edgy.
For clothes, an over-sized jumper is a must. My favorite one at the moment is from Victoria secret, it is very bright, and colorful and still keeps you warm when you get chilly. I have recently bought patterned joggers, from New Look, These look cute with a simple top, while being comfy and stylish at the same time. A staple that will look great with the patterned joggers are the boxy tops. I have two one from holister and one from Topshop, I have more but these are my most recent. Boxy tops are loose and very comfortable and you have many different options from the high streets.
To finish off, I am just going share ideas on what you could do while you are on spring holiday. 
I would recommend making a Bucket List. Here are a couple of examples that I came up with.

  • Go swimming in the sea
  • Make homemade lemonade
  • Have a barbecue
  • Go camping
  • Go fishing
  • Have a picnic
  • Fly a kite
  • Feed the ducks
  • Go mini golfing
  • Have a Easter egg hunt
  • Have ago at planting a flower
  • Go hiking
