Spring has sprung – well, sort of! It’s the beginning of March, which I always look at as the unofficial start to spring. I know, I know, I’m getting ahead of myself, but it’s just been soooo cold here lately! I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to my least favourite season as much. While I love spring for all of its merits; the sun starts to shine, the days get longer, the flowers start to bloom and, um, hello, the fashion…it also kind of sucks, too. Personally, I’d say it is the cruel teaser before the real fun comes along, summertime! Plus, in my area, at least, it’s always raining! BOO. Though, to channel my inner Pollyanna, “April showers bring May flowers!” ;)
Speaking of Pollyanna, have you ever had one of those moments when you sugar coat something in your mind so much that you don’t even realize how bad a situation is? For example, let’s say a girl is trying to make a serious effort in blogging more often, because she really enjoys it and needs to stop using her busy lifestyle as an excuse to not write more often. She stumbles on a bit of writer’s block for a while, but knows that when the right inspiration or idea comes to her, she’ll get started and break the dreaded block. When said inspiration or idea doesn't come within a couple of days, she dismisses it, thinking that she still has loads of time to get crackin’…that is, until she realizes that it is a NEW FREAKIN’ MONTH!!! :O
In case you didn't realize, the “girl” in question is me. Yea, I know, pretty bad, huh? You know you’re an expert procrastinator when you start to tell yourself that it’s okay, you have time and then wake up one day and it’s a new month. I truly am sorry for my absence, and I PROMISE I will be more active in the days and months to come. J Did you miss me? Because I sure missed you, girl!!!!
Anywho, back to March…I know, we still have another two and a half weeks until the official start of Spring, but by golly, am I looking forward to that day! I know that for most of you, the weather outside will still be cold and dreary, and that there’s no big holidays in March, so most of us won’t get a break until Easter, and it’s the month where everything just seems a little bleh; the “in-betweener.” But, my friend, I choose to look at it like this: 18 sleeps. Just 18 short sleeps and we’ll be officially in Spring, and then it won’t be long before bright nail polish, shorter hems and more time in the sun…and who doesn’t like that!? Plus, there are some exciting things happening this month! Daylight Savings means longer days and March Madness brings basketball to the forefront of people's minds (which is awesome for a bball fan like me). Oh, and...St. Patrick’s Day gives most girls (of Irish descent or not) a good excuse to pull out their most festive, garish green wear (and/or to get drunk…but this is a family blog, let’s keep it PG!)! Heh, heh? March isn't so "bleh" after all, is it now!??! Anyone? Okay, okay, am I clutching at straws a little? Probably, but hey, it's something! :)
As for what’s up for March on #BeautyBylaws, your one stop source for beauty basics, tidbits and everything in-between, expect a whole ton of reviews! Seriously, there are so many things that I've wanted to review for a while, but haven’t gotten around to yet, but I'm determined to get through the list this month! Plus, I’m sure there will be some new things coming out that I won’t be able to keep my paws off of (even though, there is kind of a conflict there, but I’ll leave those details for another day). Also, #BasicBylaws will be making a comeback, as well as some other popular series that I haven’t touched in quite a bit, so keep your eyes peeled for those! Hip, hip hooray!!!! :D
Alright, that’s it for today, but I hope you can put away those winter blues and make some room for some Spring & Summertime Fun! After all, it is called spring cleaning for a reason, you know! ;) Teehee! Yay! Happy March, lovelies! Let's make it a month to remember!
Until next time,S♥
