Things I Love About Spring

I just can't get enough of Spring at the moment, it has felt like such a long time coming and after a very wet and cold Winter here in England, I think I'm not the only one who is pretty glad to see some sunshine. I always find myself looking forward to this season every year, I feel a lot happier around this time and I find other people seem to be happier and cheerier too! There are so many wonderful things to love about Spring and today I am going to be sharing a few of my favourites.
So let's start by talking about Spring flowers which are by far the most beautiful throughout the year especially the blossom trees. You know it's finally Spring when you walk into town and all you see is pink blossom trees, they are just so pretty and make fab Instagram photographs of course! Spring flowers are so refreshing and they just make me smile.

The lighter evenings have to come high up on my list of favourite things, it is so nice to finish work and get home when it is still light outside. Although I love Winter too, I find the days feel so short and there seems to be no time to do anything. Right now I can go to work all day then come home and take some blog photographs if I want to, it is so nice to be able to use daylight again. 

The outdoors is amazing and because I really enjoy walking and spending time outside, this time of year is perfect for me. I love to spend my weekends exploring new parts of my town and seeing new places, it's so nice to be able to go out for a long walk again without a coat or an umbrella. The outside is enjoyable, comforting and good for your state of mind. 

When it comes to food during Spring, seasonal produce is an absolute must. My diet is very limited due to damn allergies so when it comes to only being able to eat certain types of fruit and vegetables, I am so happy when it comes back round to raspberry and strawberry season! These are my favourite fruits and they are thankfully two I am allowed to have, they are just so much more easily accessible in Spring/Summer and they taste more delicious too. 

Pastel colours are my favourite especially pink and purple, I love bringing out my favourite pastel nail polishes and phone cases after they've been hiding away for a few weeks. 

Another awesome thing about spring is the fact that I finally get to start using the sunroof in my car which is something I was really looking out for when I purchased my new car. I've always loved the idea of having glass above me when driving, it's just so nice to be able to see out, have more light come in and be able to drive around with the roof open when it's warm and sunny enough!

And finally, something I really do admire about this time of year is the positivity from everyone including me. It seems like everyone comes out of their shells and their inner personality just glows when the weather is better and the days are longer.

What is your favourite thing about Spring?
