Spring into Spring!

So winter has really gotten me down with updating this blog. I'm quite disappointed in myself for not sticking to it, but it just seems that when drab weather (especially the windy and clammy kind we always see in Philly winters) comes around, I lose all motivation to do pretty much anything. :( How do you guys get over the winter blues? Clearly I haven't found a good way to get over the cold. I've just been snuggling up with my cow pillow pet all winter...Here's an indoor post for you guys, since it was raining all day today!

Spring Break was just a little over a week ago, and I spent it on a cruise to the Bahamas with friends and my boyfriend. The weather was so lovely, and it cheered me up quite a bit. If only the entire world could be temperature controlled like that cruise ship!! :P I've also been reading a bunch of blogs lately, and it seems like winter is finally coming to an end for everyone everywhere. Everyone's getting dressed up in their light spring gear, especially those lovely peachy-pink neutrals I've been admiring lately. I couldn't help but be inspired by it. Browsing other blogs has also brought on a heavy bout of shoe/sandal envy. I just keep seeing those Jeffrey Campbell platforms everywhere, and they're so pretty! Unfortunately the day I can afford/walk in those shoes is a long time away.

I'm due for a haircut soon! My bangs are way too long, and the chlorine/salt water from the beaches and cruise ship hot tubs have dried my hair out so badly, especially at the ends. I can't seem to keep any part of my hair untangled, and it's much wavier than before. I regret not bringing conditioner with me so much. :(

I've also been very obsessive about nail polishes lately. I've been painting and repainting my nails like a madwoman. These are supposed to look like clouds...I think people can tell? The smell of polish is awful though. I always wonder how many brain cells I'm losing when I get a whiff of the stuff. Bubzbeauty has been really helpful when I'm wondering what fun designs I should paint next. 

My friend Ariel got me these adorableee piggy socks when she was abroad. :) :)

Blouse: Forever21

Also, please let me know if the pink-toning in my pictures bothers you. I know the colors aren't as accurate, but spring time clothing always makes me love those soft tones you can get. :)
