Womanista Wish List: This week I’m loving (Happy Spring Edition!)

It is amazing what a little warmth & sunshine can do for my mood – I don’t know about you, womanistas, but Spring makes me H-A-P-P-Y! In honor of this season of growth, new beginnings, & lots of happy moments soaking up the sun, here are a few things I’m loving!


A pretty cherry tree currently in bloom in my yard! Yay, Spring!

1. This video. I love a good tear-jerker on the internet, but this one is happy & joyful. One look at this sweet little girls face & I can’t help but feel motivated to be a better person. After you watch, maybe say a prayer for her to continue to grow & flourish.

2. Spring Lipstick. Bright lipstick makes me feel polished & beautiful, and I absolutely love rocking it with some bold prints during spring. Aqualillies for Tarte limited edition pure performance lipstick in “Timeless” is one of my very favorite go-to shades. It’s a gorgeous bold coral that looks amazing on both blondes & brunettes! Plus, it lasts FOR-EVER. Seriously. They aren’t kidding with the whole “12-hour” thing.

3. Fabulous Prints. I recently picked up this super-cute printed top with cutouts in the back and an exposed zipper. I paired it with cropped dark skinny jeans,  Jimmy Choo turquoise heels (I also love THESE for less than $65!), and this pair of amethyst earrings (plus the Tarte lipstick above!!) I felt fun & fresh. This top would be equally at home paired with a metallic pencil skirt or a pair of chic striped linen shorts! Bold prints are surprisingly versatile & super glam for spring.

4. Delicious Rosé Wine. There is nothing better than sipping a chilled glass of rosé while lounging by the pool (or the ocean! or a lake! or your front porch!) on a warm, breezy day. One of my favorite bottles is Chateau D’Esclans “Whispering Angel” – it’s pale pink in color & bursting with ripe strawberry richness. It’s light & smooth & even people who don’t like wine will like this bottle. AND at around just $20 it’s pretty affordable. Heaven (maybe that’s why they included “angel” in the name??)

Happy Spring, womanistas!

    Spring really does something with your mood. Haha I just wrote about that in my blog earlier actually;) Right now it’s a rainy city I live in (Bergen-Norway) but the two last weeks we’ve had a WONDERFUL spring weather and it does something to your energy level knowing the brighter days are upon us!
