Hello Spring!

cherry blossoms

Yesterday marked the first day of Spring. Yay! This has been one of the worst winters I can recall in New York City but we managed to get through it. And even if the warmer weather isn't quite settling in yet, I feel better just knowing it's officially Spring. Here's to brighter days and balmier temperatures ahead! I can't wait for the cherry blossoms to bloom again. 

I'm having a Spring sale in my Etsy print shop! Take 25% off all orders with the code "HAPPYSPRING" through the end of March.

I snapped this selca of myself after I trimmed my bangs the other day. They had gotten so long that they started blending into my bob. They're still on the long side but I didn't want to cut too much at first since I can always make them shorter which I might do. And I'm wearing and loving the Firmoo glasses I won recently in Alway With Yoo's giveaway. In other news, I'm back in physical therapy for my ankle. It's feeling alot better now and I'm trying to wean off wearing my ankle brace. As clunky and "fashionable" as it is, I actually got used to it and feel more secure walking around with it than without. So does anyone else cut their own bangs?

Hi Rowena! Im the same as you, weather is still pretty far to be mild here but just the awareness of the spring started, just is enough to stay better and feel really happy. You look soooooo cute in that pic and the glasses suit u well, congrats on the winning! I prefer u in this way you know, without bangs cause your face stands out more and is really sweet!:) I hope your ankle heals definitely so u have to not wear the brace anymore, Im glad it is much more better now, take care.

Yes it was long and cold, though certainly not the worst. I have lived through worse. In fact I lived through three in a row that were so bad I up and moved to Seattle! I forgot you had a print shop. Love the Stepping Pretty and Charmed life prints.

Yay for Spring! And a lovely quote as well. So funny, just today I was thinking about cutting my bangs, but I do think I need someone else to do it for me, I'm so bad at it. You look great with bangs, actually I think you would look amazing with straight bangs too! Hope your ankle gets better soon! Have a great weekend!

I've never cut my own hair before, but mine is so fine that if I screwed up one section, it would be so noticeable!

I can't wait for warmer weather! But seems like we'll be stuck with winds and low temps for a bit.. Hoping I have the time to catch the cherry blossoms this year :D Where do you usually go?

Lovely new hair cut, Rowena! Great to hear that things are turning for the better, weather and what not, for you all over there. Hope you enjoy the spring days ahead as it warms up through time!

Here in KL, we have been experiencing quite bad haze condition! Luckily, this week it stared raining and therefore, cleared off quite a fair bit of that bad weather...

Take care *_^

Love,
Jenn

Beautiful post! I am longing for Spring myself...hopefully the weather will catch up with the season and true Springtime will appear.

Lovely quote :)

Aye, it is indeed spring even though it realy does not feel it. Well, down in London it's starting to warm up, but up north, naaaah, there's still an icy feel outside. I'm just grateful we barely had any snow this winter, YAY!

(I immediately thought about Game of Thrones when reading that quote...heheh)
Love the selfie! I used to trim my own bangs....until I realised I was doing the worst job possible and that mistake is still reflected in my high school grad photos....-cringe-
With the new season and meltdown, you won't be able to slip on ice anymore! Hope therapy is a speedy one! :)

Kim Alston said...

I'm glad that Spring has officially arrived in NY. I'm curious. How do you know which is the official day of spring? Is it by the calendar date or by the snow clearing? This has always gotten me curious. We don't have the 4 seasons here so it is very interesting whenever I read all my overseas blog friends post about the weather and climate. It seems like Spring is arriving at many places already. I hope you would continue to stay warm and lovely.

You should post more pictures of yourself or I would slowly grow to think that I'm talking to the Rena (as in your profile pic) Do keep the bangs as they would frame your face quite well.

I adore ladies who wear the bangs as I can't stand them on myself. Look cute on you, Rowena. Hope your ankle is quickly healing. I am dying for sunny warm days. So tired of a long, cloudy winter. Such gorgeous photo of flower.
