Maya's back with a brilliant spring blog.

With new plants poking up through the soil, birds building nests and laying eggs, more hours of sunshine in the day, it can only mean one thing… Spring is in full swing!

Spring is one of my favourite times of the year. I love waking up to the sweet sound of birds singing happily away and the sun shining through my windows - it’s my very own Disney princess moment!

I just love the way spring represents a recreation in nature, but also with ourselves.

A birth. A fresh start. A new beginning filled with a clean slate and more opportunities to come.

Out with the old, and in with the new - it’s time for that annual spring clean.

With the weather so lovely at the moment, I have all the things you need to get yourself, and your home in order so here are a few of my favourites from Selfridges, Birmingham.

 Who said spring cleaning had to be boring? These Happy Jackson, ‘Random Crap’ and ‘Big Bag of Stuff’ carrier bags add a bit of fun and quirkiness to your spring clean.

 A new season calls for new stationary… if you’re a bit of a stationary nerd like me you’ll love the new range at Selfridges. Here are my favourite picks…

Sam Watts, Deputy General Manager at Selfridges Birmingham has commented about the new range of spring products saying:

“We are so excited we have finally arrived in spring as it has been a long winter.

Our customers are loving the new home department selection we have in store and there is everything from quirky bright bags brimming full of character, to notepads, mugs, pens and desk tidies.

 All the spring products listed are available at Birmingham, Selfridges in the new home section on Level 1. The new product range is sure to get yourself and your home well and truly ready for this season!

Don’t forget to give your wardrobe a spring clean too!

Put those winter coats, wooly jumpers, hats, gloves and scarves away to very back of your wardrobes. It’s time to get your spring summer wardrobe at the ready with t-shirts, pretty dresses, light cardigans/cover ups, loose shirts, sandals and not forgetting your favourite pair of sunnies.

Here are a few of my favourite key pieces for this Spring Summer…

Although spring symbolises fresh starts, for me theres something magical about the smell of freshly cut grass, of flowing blooming and blossom-covered trees. All these scents bring back happy, fun, memories where days were spent playing in the gardens. 

In Spring/Summer I love wearing big bold floral prints, here are a few of my favourite pieces which can be found at Topshop & Selfridges…

Check out Maya's last blog here about home spa treatments. 

A good thing I ask myself is, “Have you worn this in the last 6 months?”Don’t forget, spring cleaning is one of the best times to de-clutter your wardrobe, bringing in new clothes, and getting rid of old ones. 

If the answer is no the chances of me wearing it in the next 6 months are pretty slim!

So, I say get an empty bag and fill it up with all your unwanted clothes. If they are all in good condition drop them off to your local charity shop.

Have you got yourself ready for Spring? How do you get ready for Spring?
