Pretty Pink Spring Flatlay  Today, it was warm enough to go outside without a jacket.  I know, finally!  Let's just ignore for a moment that I was uh, still needing to wear boots and a cashmere cardigan.  Anyway, now seems like a pretty good time to start thinking about ways to welcome the new season, and to prepare for all it brings.  There are thousands of ways to prepare for Spring, six of which I've listed below as a sort of mini-brainstorm ready for the brighter months ahead.  Read on, and let me know your ways/ideas for gearing up for Spring - here's to brighter mornings!
-

Wardrobe Changeover - Ah, the dreaded task of leafing through our wardrobes at the end of each season.  This is probably the most laborious, but rewarding way of preparing for Spring.  Clear out the old, and bring out those lighter, brighter shades...        
-

Celebrations - Forward plan.  Off the top of my head - universally speaking - there's Mother's Day and Easter Sunday.  Track down those chocolate eggs (and enter my giveaway to win a Hotel Chocolat Easter Egg!) and take the pressure off finding the perfect Mother's Day gift by getting ahead of the game

-

Back to Nature - Spring tends to remind us all of how beautiful nature is.  Bring the outdoors to your coffee table by popping some flowers in a vase, or alternatively revamp any darker artificial flowers you've got lying around from winter by spraying the petals, or painting the stems white  

-

Experiment with Beauty - Spring is famous for bringing about changes, and so if you've been thinking about changing your hairstyle, finding a new signature fragrance or switching up your beauty regime, now is the time!

-

Emotional Clean-out - As 'wishy washy' as it sounds, the less weighing you down, the better your experience of the season will be.  Let go of anything you feel is holding you back.  Personally, I've been jotting down anything that has regularly worked against keeping a smile on my face, ready to determine what needs changing before Spring kicks in.  At the very least, it's a fabulous excuse to buy a pretty new notebook, right?! 

-

Freshen Up Your Workspace - Before the new season gets underway, the space to focus on first is your home office and/or desk area.  Anything that doesn't have you reaching for peonies and celebrating bright mornings can be packed away.  Switch those candle fragrances to fresh notes, swap the bulbs for brighter versions and pin up inspirational, pretty prints left, right and centre!
