The sun is out and the birds are chirping and I have my windows open... Spring has finally come!

And with this Spring comes the need to wear bright colours in all shapes and forms. Not only in clothes, but also in lipsticks and nail polishes... yummy!

In the last couple of weeks I have been guilty of a slew of lipstick and nail polish purchases. But I don't see this as a bad thing... I actually see it as a fairly cheap way of updating your look while also giving you time to have a bit of fun. I also find that while I'm pregnant I like to pamper myself a bit more when my body is growing out of control (in a good way) and sometimes uncomfortable. A little nail polish and lipstick help me to embrace this body and give it a little love and appreciation :)

So here's where I'm at today. I gave myself a mani yesterday and got this nude and gold inspiration from Pinterest. I absolutely love it... I have never bought a nude nail polish before, but now that I have it just seems so simple and beautiful. The gold sparkles also make it fun and who wouldn't love a little sparkle in their every day life?

As for lipsticks these are my top three right now...Revlon 510 Berry Rich for an everyday "pretty" glow, Maybrlline 885 Vibrant Mandarin (which looks hot pink on me) for a rockin' neon feel, and Revlon 29 Red Lacquer for pretty much everything else. Seriously, this poppy red goes with EVERYTHING. Love that. Also, with a bright lip I usually keep the rest of my makeup fairly neutral, so not only does it look great, but it is also speedy. Perfect for a mommy of a very active toddler.
