As it’s Easter, and spring officially started a few weeks ago, I wanted to do a Spring/Easter tag, a bit like the Christmas ones that were around, but I couldn’t actually find one I liked – everything seemed to be very beauty related, and while I do love my beauty, and might keep some of the questions, I didn’t really think it fitted with this blog! So instead I decided to make one up… Lets see how this goes:
1. What do you like most about Spring?
I love that spring marks the end of winter – I am definitely a Summer child, and as soon as the wild flowers start to bloom, and the sun starts to replace the rain I get infinitely happier. Waking up when it isn’t pitch black outside makes me so much more excited to start the day, and always reminds me that summer is coming!
2. What is your favourite Easter chocolate?
It used to be Creme Eggs, because they’re amazing, but now that they’ve gone and changed the chocolate it’s not the same anymore, and they’ve become a bit of a disappointment… WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT? It makes me so sad. So Mini Eggs maybe? Or that Cadburys chocolate bar with white chocolate bunnies on it, because they’re adorable.
3. How do you update your wardrobe for Spring?
More dresses. More skirts. Less boots. Hopefully I can start to phase the tights out soon, and then shorts, and crop tops, and loose t-shirts and bliss. Also I tend to go from dark lipstick to bright or nude lipstick around this time!
4. What kind of books do you like to read in Spring?
I’m not the kind of person who changes they’re reading habits that much based on the season, so if there’s a book I really want to read, I’ll still just read it. That being said, I think I do tend to steer away from the heavier, more intense books or anything super long in spring – I’d rather have something light-hearted and uplifting! I think I also tend to read more contemporary books in the spring and summer, but I think that’s coincidence rather than a rule!
5. Do your family have any particular Spring/Easter traditions?
My Mum’s side of the family always have a gathering on Easter Sunday, to celebrate Easter. The whole extended family would pile into either my Grandparent’s and then later, my Aunt’s house, to eat a lot of food, and just generally catch up. It’s one of the few times a year where we get the whole family together, so it’s always really nice! Since we were small there would be an Easter Egg hunt for all the kids, although that is stopping this year, as the majority of the cousins are now around 20!
So there is my Spring Tag, or my attempt at it at least. I wanted to keep it quite short, as long tags can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. I use the word tag loosely, as I’m not actually going to tag anyone, but I would love to hear all of your answers! So definitely give it a go if you fancy :)
Happy Easter everyone, I hope the Easter Bunny brings you all of the chocolate!
