Spring time is just around the corner...Well, here in San Diego it feels like spring has already begun! I don't know about you, but I'm over this winter weather and really looking forward to all the bright colors that spring brings. When I think of spring, one of the beauty brands that comes to mind is Pixi Beauty. Maybe it's the product packaging with the fairies and flowers, but something about this beauty brand really resonates with me.

Do you ever feel like you are the last one to know about the newest fashion trends? Well, not anymore. Consider yourself to be “in the know” with what spring fashions will look like. This spring we will be seeing a lot of soft fabrics such as lace and floral prints. Colour schemes this spring include neutral tones such as creams and light browns.

I've just browsed the online shop, and although it's still winter, I'm ready for spring again after looking at all the designer swimwear and jewellery on this site!
