With all of the pink magnolias and redbuds in bloom, we’re feeling more inspired than ever to add pops of color to our vases, our spaces and our wardrobe. In celebration of fresh blooms and the arrival of spring, we plan to do just that. We found 13 fun ways to incorporate the season’s vivid hues into your life (hey, the month does contain Friday the 13th!). From gifts for the home to treats for yourself and even your good ole’ furry friend, there is something to enliven every part of your day.
And, we went a little happy spending our “play” money for today’s article … but there are some steals in here as well! Everything was just sooooo dreamy …
FOR THE VANITY
New York perfume
BOND NO. 9 was created to bring artistry back to perfumery while also paying homage to New York. Each scent is inspired by the sights, sounds, creatives, dreamers and history of the various Big Apple neighborhoods. These particular 50ml bottles run for $215 to $220, and each scent looks and smells delicious. Find them at Absolution.
14k gold bangles
Yearly Co. 14k gold bangles are hand-made by a local Nashville designer and would make an amazing Mother’s Day gift, or a treat to yourself. You can also add initials to make it extra special. The bangles were originally created out of a family tradition of gifting a bangle for each anniversary to represent another year of marriage. They are available in 14k yellow, white or rose gold. Find them for $325 at Consider the Wldflwrs.
