In an effort to focus on the positive today and make space for a bit of joy, I’m excited to share a few of my favorite things for spring. Below you will find links and information to some of my favorite products and online retailers (who will greatly benefit from your support during a time when we are spending more time at home and with our families.) I’ve also included some great spring recipes and craft projects to keep you celebrating the season!

I received my first two pairs of sparkling gold earrings from Aurate New York and I am in love. I can’t get over the cute style of these tribal bar earrings with a piece that goes in front of the earlobe and then connects up with another piece from behind – SO FUN! The tiny heart hoops are so versatile, too. Their designs are unique and the packaging is obviously as important to Aurate as it is to me.
I’m saving up for one of their cuff earrings, too, because stacking earrings is the latest hot trend and there are just so many cute choices! Aurate combines sustainable sourcing and production of all of their jewelry right here in the U.S. with durable, high quality materials to stand the test of time.
Lip Enhancing Lipbalm
I discovered this lip balm after a miraculous (and rare!) facial at Beauty Blend Studio. I have never had such supple, moisturized lips. My teen daughter and I have started using this stuff nightly and there is absolutely nothing like it. Want the plump lip look without the expensive, invasive Botox? You’ve got to try this lip enhancement complex!
Untamed by Glennon Doyle
Since I am obsessed with Glennon Doyle and all the good in the world that she represents, I have her newly released book, Untamed, ready to crack open. Glennon makes me laugh, makes me cry, and reminds me that there is a lot of beautiful, wonderful, brave people in our world, even when things seem scary and hard. Cannot WAIT to read this one.
It’s succulent planting time! About this time every year, I dig in to my old succulent planters and spruce them up – pulling out dead leaves, trimming back long and lanky strands, propagating leaves and trimmed plants, and filling in holes with fresh new succulents. As soon as it’s safe to gather with friends again, I have a date with some besties to plant up fresh succulent wreaths for the spring. Do you have a succulent garden growing?
I’ve added this Golden Milk recipe into my daily routine. I noticed that Starbucks has even jumped on the turmeric trend, but I like my recipe best. Golden Milk is a warm comforting blend of turmeric, ginger, spices, honey, and milk (any kind of milk) for a yummy, immune-boosting blend of flavors.
Glitter Easter Egg Decorations
Easter is just around the corner and nothing is so nostalgic as playing with Easter egg decorations. This year, I have a huge container of plastic eggs that are supposed to be dyeable. I want to do some pastel colors and then add glitter like the ones I did a few years ago.
Lemon Cream Cheese Cookie Bars
My lemon tree is LOADED with lemons, so I’m baking up all the lemon things. My family never gets tired of Lemon Cream Cheese Bars – give them a try and you’ll see why.
My Jax joggers and my trusty leggings are my favorite clothes to wear this spring; they make up my home uniform. I don’t want to wear anything else. They are so super comfy and I have gathered up quite the collection of cute prints and patterns. If you need some new comfy pants in your life, shop for available joggers or leggings online here or shoot me your contact info and I’ll help you find what you’re looking for!
Drinking my morning coffee or golden milk out of the cutest mug that my cousin gifted me is making me all kinds of happy. I love supporting small businesses and if you’d like to, too, you can personalize a mug for your bestie or yourself here at Gossby.
So there you are! I hope you’ll find shopping, cooking, and crafting inspiration from my favorite things this Spring!
