Spring in your step

weekending reads

Either I’ve got my days mixed up, or my diary and the weather are having a slight disagreement, but rumour has it that today is the official start of spring. Despite what mother nature might say, let’s go ahead and do a happy dance because the vernal equinox has declared that as of today, sunnier, longer days, are in the very near future. I’ll be the first to admit that I took the glorious rays for granted when they showed up everyday. Now is a completely different story, and I vow never, ever, no matter where we are in the world, to take it for granted ever again.

So what sits on your agenda this weekend ladies/gents? Maybe you’ll mark the occasion by getting out your brighter basics, or head out on a mission to shop for some new spring staples? Perhaps parking yourself outside with a good book is a great place to start? Whatever you decide to do, I hope it’s filled with all of the things you love, including a scroll through some of our favorites from across the web this week.

In hopes of the sun shining its face soon, here are 14 pairs of cheap sunglasses that could pass for a high-ticket item.

For your sake, and mine, let’s hope this is an April Fools joke.

This is too funny, for anyone who loves to get the picture-perfect shot while on holiday¬†or elsewhere, you’ll agree with this.

Happiness is contagious, so spread it around on this International Day of Happiness.

Have a gorgeous weekend doing what you do best, being fabulous!
