Open the curtains... look, sunlight! It’s Spring! It’s one of my favourite times of year... seeing the flowers begin to grow and baby animals appear is lovely after a cold winter, not to mention getting to wear nice outfits again with open fun shoes instead of boots and not needing to take a jumper everywhere! Now that Spring is here, it’s time to celebrate, and here are my top seven ways to celebrate the start of Spring.
1. Zoo Day!

Grab some friends and head to the zoo with a picnic... seeing all the proud Mummy animals is brilliant and you’ll get some super cute photos too. I love zoos, they are so full of wonder and imagination and excellent exercisetoo!
2. Have a BBQ!

Grab some BBQ ingredients and eat outside. Make salad, drink wine and enjoy the outdoors (even if you have to wear a sweater!). I miss BBQ season all through the winter...
3. Dress the Part

Paint your toe nails bright pink, wear a summer dress, grab some sandals, and buy a straw hat. You’ll be surprised how much of a difference it will make to your mood... you’ll instantly feel like spring!
4. Take a Picture

Who cares about paparazzi photos when you can capture nature instead.Go for a stroll around your neighbourhood and take a picture of everything that shows the start of Spring. Use them to make a gorgeous Spring collage for the wall... it’ll keep you feeling Spring like even on bad days!
5. Update the House

My house always looks so depressingly empty after the Christmas decorations have gone down, so at the start of spring, I go on a house shopping spree. Grab a bright coloured rug and lamps, and some pillow cases. Your house will instantly seem much more Spring-like!
6. Play Golf

Who said golf is a man's game. Grab a ball and head out to play some golf. I have no idea why, but golf always seems so spring like, and golf courses are always set in such picturesque locations... I visited my favourite golf course this week and there are tiny daffodils everywhere! It’s beautiful and made me feel so cheerful and it would for a wonderful fun date!
7. Blow Bubbles
