Are you tired of me talking about The Spring Fever? I hope not! I have never been so excited about the changing of the seasons before. Bring on the sunny days please. Since I was displaced from our master bath due to the installation of our new flooring this week, I had a pack a little overnight bag to take to the other bathroom. I tried to pack some multi-purpose items so that I wasn't dragging my entire stash of makeup to the other side of the house.

Luckily, the new Stila Garden Bliss set that I purchased arrived just in time. Unlike the $10 Stila Travel Palettes, which included a cream convertible color, this palette has a *powder* blush. And this powder blush is a great shade for me! If you're warm like me, you'll love the eye shadows in this set as well- the golds and browns are just perfect and make for a quick eye look.

Check out The Muse's review of this set for some swatches- I can't seem to locate my camera right now due to our remodeling project.

If you haven't tried any of the colors from the new OPI Texas collection, you're missing out. The shade I'm wearing above is Big Hair, Big Nails (3 coats). I think it's a perfect color for spring- so cheery! I haven't yet picked it up, but I'm also wanting to get Guy Meets Gal-veston after seeing Scrangie's swatches last week.

Last night I spritzed myself with Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, and OMG, I'm in love! I have a very hard time finding scents that agree with me since I'm super-sensitive to smells. Anything that I don't love and that's too strong makes me absolutely sick to my stomach, so it's got to be PERFECT before I can wear it. And this is....... but alas, it's pretty expensive. Sephora's got a set that includes at 2.5 oz bottle of the scent along with a 5 oz tube of lotion for $75, which is more than I usually like to spend. But it's just lovely and it's calling my name, LOUDLY.

What products are you loving for Spring?

I love the OPI Texas names--so funny!

I love those nails with the pretty flowers. I'm guessing you didn't paint those on individually, will have to head on over to Manicure Momma's and read up on them.

I just got all new makeup too, not Stila though. I think my foundation is just a little too light though. I'm fairly pale but it's more white than I'm used to and I feel like it doesn't cover my imperfections the way I'd like.

One of these days I wanna try Stila stuff, I've heard such good things about it!

Happy Spring!
