Hey guys! I know I already expressed my excitement about spring around the corner, but I just had to do an essentials post.  All of my picks are a little pricey so I will link a dupe for each for a more budget friendly solution.  So let’s start off with number one.  This Steve Madden tote is on my wish list because it is the perfect beach bag.  It’s pretty pricey so you may want to shop around and find one more reasonably priced, but I think I may bite the bullet and buy this one.  Number two is going to be a great sunless tanner.  I personally use the one I linked in the post, but if you have a tried and true brand you love then I ain’t mad at you girl. lol  Honestly I find the Jergens one gives a pretty natural color and could not be cheaper.  I do recommend using a tanning glove.  I bought mine from Ulta for like $6.00 or something like that.  It keeps your hands from turning orange and spreads the product more evenly.  Next is number three and it is my most important one, because a pair of nude sandals is a closet staple in my book.  There is almost nothing I can’t wear with a pair of nude sandals.  I picked these because they are right on trend with the laces and are flat so you can literally wear them anywhere comfortably.  Number four is the Essie Spring Pack.  I love all these colors but my favorite and one is the pale pink.  I just feel like that color could stay on my fingers year round and I wouldn’t get tired of it.  The white is really trendy right now and the coral and blue can be fun when your feeling like you want to change things up and add a pop of color.  Number five is a cool pair of sunnies.  I picked these because I personally own them and love them.  I feel like they will never go out of style and I have dropped them one million times and they have never broken.  This season the bohemian look is really trendy so a pair of aviator sunglasses will really add to that look, but you could also get a pair of cat eye sunglasses because those are going to be really trendy as well.  Ahhh number 6 is the floppy hat.  I just got mine in from Forever 21 and you will see that one coming up in the blog pretty soon, but this one here is probably better quality.  Off topic, I just want to say I link Nordstrom  a lot because they have free shipping and returns on all items and have excellent customer service.  I know where we live Dillards is usually where we buy designer things, but a lot of things I find on both websites and usually Nordstrom is better priced, and do price matches. Just a quick tid bit. Back to the floppy hat, I know in Louisiana it is HOT!  We are always looking to get some shade and ladies this will give you that shade and you will look adorable in it.  Mine will probably have holes by the end of the summer.  Lastly is the Dior Hydra Life BB creme, and it is expensive, but worth every penny in my opinion.  I have also used Tarte Amazonian and Smashbox, but none compare to this one.  If you go to Sephora and ask the ladies at the makeup counter for a sample, you can try it before you buy it.  Also Sephora has a great return policy, so if you don’t like anything you purchase just bring it back with the receipt and you will get a refund.  Anyway, this BB creme can be used as a foundation, or I like to just dab a little on before I lay out because I think its SPF 30, so sun protection and it gives your skin a nice glow.  Also, it’s thin and weightless so it doesn’t give you a makeup look.  Well guys those are my 7 spring essentials and I hope you enjoyed this post.  Also don’t forget to check the budget friendly dupes out and I hope you have a great day!
