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.

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...

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!


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!

Over in here in the UK we've waited quite a while for Spring but it finally looks like it has arrived! It has an instant mood lightening effect and everyone is brighter and chirpier - even with Icelandic ash clouds overhead! And I love those painted toes-have had my first pedicure of the year! Jane

Dressing up for a particular season is always fun. Especially because it almost always follows shopping. Haha
