When we start seeing signs of spring in our own backyards, our thoughts immediately turn to brighter colors, warmer weather, more outdoor activities, and more colorful outfits. To help get you ready for spring, we’ve collaborated with Food Wine Sunshine to bring you 10 tips for having more fun in the spring sun:
Spring starts this month! Hopefully your weather is starting to warm up and you’re enjoying the change of seasons. I know I am. I thought I would share some tips to help you get ready for spring. It’s time to start enjoying the outside again!
Change Your Outdoor Lights
Now that the weather is warming up for you to spend more time outdoors, you’ll want to ensure your patio and outdoor lights are working properly. Be sure to use new energy-efficient bulbs.
Give Your Front Door Some Love
Rinse off the grim and snow from the winter, polish the handles. Might as well make sure the porch doesn’t need any extra attention while you are there.
Plant Some Flowers
This tip is always one of those favorite parts of spring – who doesn’t love some color in their yard?
Clean Up Your Existing Flower Beds
Cut away the dead branches and freshen up your flower bed mulch. Gives plants and flowers a chance to bloom their best.
Clean Out Your Gutters
Get all the leaves and stuff that got stuck in there over the last few months…April Showers are coming.
Buy a WELCOME Mat
A new Welcome Mat is sure to make you smile. Welcome Spring!
Get a Pedicure
It’s time to let those toes free! Use fun colors that welcome the beautiful colors of spring. My daughter and I love Del Sol’s color-changing nail polish. It actually changes color in the sunlight! Del Sol’s nail polish selection contains the brightest and most vivid hues from the earth’s color palette. When you paint your nails with this special nail polish, you can watch the colors change before your eyes as you step out into the warm rays of the sun. You can actually see the colors changing right before your eyes – so cool! So fun for spring!
Check Your Closet – Any Updates Needed?
Make sure you and your family have swimsuits and cover-ups that fit. Summer isn’t far away! Dust off your sunglasses, or make a plan to buy some. Del Sol carries clothing and accessories, too! You can find beach or pool cover-ups, swimsuit, and sunglasses from Del Sol. They also change color in the sun. We love them; it shows us if we need more sun! The sunglasses are mine. The change from light blue to pink in sunlight – my two favorite colors.
Find Your Sandals
Now that your toes are done and your clothes are ready, you need your sandals to show off those toes! May I suggest cool flip-flops that change in the sun from Del Sol? Mine do! The sturdy straps change from clear to pink or blue in sunlight.
