Five Things to look forward to in Spring

Today is the first official day of Spring and I'm chuffed. I'm really looking forward to a fresh, sunny new season and more than ready to shake off the winter. In honour of the beginning of Spring, I thought I'd have a good old ramble about some of the things to look forward to with the arrival of the new season! Many clichés and basic b sentiments ahead. You have been warned!

Cherry blossom trees - I am a sucker for flowers anyway but show me a good cherry blossom tree in bloom and I'll spend the next ten minutes capturing it from every angle trying to stock up on pretty floral photos for the 'gram. To me, they're the first sign of Spring. They may not be in bloom for long, but they're bloody gorgeous whilst they are!

Baby animals - Is there anything better than a baby animal? No, there definitely isn't. I live in a very countryside-ish area, which means fields full of cows and sheep are fairly commonplace. On the flip side, that also means I've seen my fair share of cow births. Let me tell you, if you think it's a cute affair, wait until you innocently walk over to your window, morning cup of tea in hand, only to see a cow with half another cow hanging out of it. I'm certain I've just completely spoiled my point with that particular anecdote but that aside, the little baby farm animals prancing about and playing in the spring flowers is the most clichéed, adorable scene ever. Just shan't be looking out of the window until I'm done with breakfast.

More light - I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds it depressing as hell leaving the house in the dark and doing the same, feel-your-way-across-the-driveway dance in the darkness when you get back home in the evening. Now the sun is practically out when I walk to work in the mornings and doesn't disappear fully until after dinner. Fab. Although, if the yellow light could stop messing with my blog photos, that would also be appreciated. Aside from that: more than happy for the extra hours of vit D!

Easter - What's better than Easter chocolate, I hear you ask? Easter chocolate on offer the day after Easter. If there was ever a time to bulk buy rabbit shaped choc, it's Spring. Naysayers may claim that you may as well buy normal chocolate for a fraction of the price, but it's an entirely different experience and if you're not guiltily decapitating a chocolate bunny during and post Easter, are you really celebrating at all?

Ditching the bulk - I think I may actually be able to pack away my puffer jacket soon and am already planning a little winter jumper clear out. Away go the bulky knits and in go the light cardis and dresses you'll be somewhat cold but unquestionably cute in. Gotta get those priorities straight. I tend to harp on about how much I love my chunky knits once summer is drawing to a close but once March rolls around I'm already ambitiously toting t-shirts and goosebumps, staring at my warm jumpers resentfully. Turtlenecks are firmly packed away until further notice.

As I'm writing this, I just got a message from a friend asking about lunch with the accompaniment of a "wooo, from now onwards we can eat outside". There you go - meals al fresco - another little bonus point! I hope this has been a somewhat coherent ramble, I'm clearly keen and very serious about embracing Spring (as well as my basicness). What are you looking forward to in Spring?

Don't forget to follow along!



  1. Love this post! Spring is by far my favourite month and I cannot wait for it to pop round

  2. I definitely appreciate the light a lot more once summer/spring rolls round. Winter just makes you feel as if you haven't done anything all day!

  3. I was SO happy to go to work in the light this evening! I really think it makes a hella big difference in terms of your mood, and it always makes me feel much safer. I moved to a countryside-ish area recently, and I don't think I'm ready to see a cow give birth aha

    Steph -

  4. Oh my gosh I'm not prepared to see a cow birth haha. There are a couple farms near my house, but luckily I haven't seen any cows giving birth. I do see the baby animals though and love it!
