5 Things I'm doing to get into the Spring Spirit

I'm not sure how things are looking over where you are but in Zurich things are bloody gross right now. I thought I'd seen it all with the cold weather and the rain but then it started to snow. There's more snow ahead and even beyond that there are low temperatures and meager sunlight to look forward to. If you've also caught yourself gazing out the window, dismayed and cold, here are four things to make you feel more Spring-y.

1. Pastel Beauty - Groundbreaking? No. But if it works it works! I dragged my pink and lavender hues back out the back of my drawers weeks ago and if you think that a little (okay, a lot) of rain is going to jeapordise that, you are mistaken. Personally, even just donning a pink lip or a pastel nail can make me feel like we're actually nearing summer as opposed to entering into a second ice age. Try it - it works!

2. Self tan - I know it's bad but I love lying in the sun once it gets a little warmer. Slathered in SPF 50 no less and only briefly but to me there are few things nicer about Spring than loading up on that Vitamin D. As sunlight is currently a scarce resource, I've been faking it using a gradual tanner. Believe it or not, having bronzed (albeit slightly orange) limbs peeking out of my winter clothes catapults me right into that Spring feeling. Fake it 'til ya make it.

3. Getting my healthy on - Spring is when I really kick things up a notch on the healthy front. I've ditched the crisps and skipped over to the gym TWICE already. Basics an athlete. Not only is it making me all round more motivated but it's really making me look forward to sunnier days. That way when the nice weather does roll around you'll feel confident and pumped.

4. Planning holidays - To be honest I'm currently planning Spring getaways I can in no way afford or actually execute, but it's fun to look nonetheless. Plus I am actually figuring out plans for summer so I'm really embracing the vaycay planning thing. I have a long list of destinations I'd love to visit, so I like to think I'm really just planning ahead for future trips. Either way, it definitely makes me feel more Spring/summery.

5. Filling up my ASOS basket - Again, half the things I chuck in my online shopping basket are completely unrealistic, but browsing for Spring clothes, whether real or window-shopping has really been getting me excited for shorts und dresses. Hopefully I'll actually be placing a few orders soon but for now I'm loving perusing the imaginary aisles. 

So there we have it, the five weird and obvious ways I'm tricking myself into a more Spring-y mindset. Are you feeling the whole Spring thing? Let me know!
