That little Marquesa number makes me weak at the knees… but it also makes me giddy for Springtime. Even though it’s always Summer in California, I still get excited for this time of year… for everything in shades of pastels, for planting new flowers & herbs outside (OMG, I’m 107… but seriously, I can almost smell heirloom tomatoes on a vine in the garden)… just for a fresh start. And if you’re any of my people back in the homeland, I bet the sun peeking through the grey skies and warming your face + the promise of green buds popping up from underneath the snow makes you so happy you could cry. Hit play on the ditty below and keep scrolling down to getcherself in the mood for Springtime!
Open a window – even if it’s still freezing out, and even if it’s only for a few minutes – just to let some fresh air in.
Or if it’s warm enough, sleep with all the windows open, and wake up like this on Saturday morning. Which is precisely what I’ll be doing.
Pick up some fresh flowers from the market.
Rearrange your furniture or refresh your decor, with things like this pillow from Lulu & Georgia:
Mix yourself some lemon mint water… a) because it’s so good for you, but b) because it tastes like Springtime.
Go get – or DIY – a mani in a bright, happy hue.
Get stoked, even if you’re over the age of 4, about Easter coming up, because even if you’re not gluing sequins on Easter eggs, at least you get to wear a Easter-egg-colored-outfits that weekend.
Treat yo self to a bright staple, like this green Gigi New York oversized clutch.
Throw one bright piece into your wardrobe mix this weekend, just to perk things up a little.
Pot a basil plant in your kitchen window.
Go for a bike ride (!!!!)
