It is of course no such thing as The Spring. Where I live (eastern Ontario) it’s still firmly winter, and will remain that way until my birthday, which is in the middle of April. Any snowfall after that date sends me into a rage spiral, but until then, I can and will deal.
But my city has also been enjoying a rare break in the chill, with temperatures soaring to and remaining well above the freezing mark for most of the last week. What a sad benchmark for acceptable weather – above freezing! I was joking with a friend who lives down south that this is exactly the kind of weather that prompts some of the city’s, uh, heartier types to don their bikinis and then have the local paper take glamour shots of them on the beach surrounded by freezing cold sand and half-thawed chunks of shore ice. Like clockwork, every year!
Also like clockwork? That I’ll use these adorable little floral nail charms in a manicure at least every few months. I love how adorably unwieldy they are – I really can’t see them working in everyday use, even if you Krazy Glue-d them to your fingernails. But in an of-the-moment mani? So cute, especially when they’re paired with a soft and springy glitter polish like KB Shimmer’s To Peach His Own.
