Until May’s Flowers Bloom…

Between the gusty winds, torrential downpours, and a day or two of sunny skies, April’s weather doesn’t lend any confidence to planning for the weekend.

Instead, I find myself forced into a bit of Spring-cleaning. Only this time, I’m not referring to the type of cleaning that requires creating all-natural home cleaning remedies, dusting beneath sofas, and creating the mother of all donation boxes. I’m talking about the kind of spring-cleaning that involves allowing the introvert in me to take the lead. Because when my inner introvert takes over, it means more reading, relaxing a lot longer, and allowing my creativity to just pour out.

On any rainy day in April, here are a few trends motivating me until May’s awe-inspiring flowers fully-bloom:

Dream or Scheme Journal
This two-faced journal allows you to both dream and scheme. Half of this journal includes lined-pages for you to write to your heart’s content.  The other half includes blank pages to sketch out your Masterpiece. Get it for $20 at Anthropologie.com

We Should All Be Feminists
Take a step beyond Chinamanda Ngozi Adiche’s brief voiceover in Beyonce’s Flawless video, and read her book “We Should All Be Feminist” in its entirety. I promise you, this book is delightful, a quick read, and will leave you feeling a bit more enlightened. Oh, and peer up from the pages every now and again with a pair a fabulous readers. You’ll certainly gain a compliment or two. These specs say she has style and means business. Ngozi Adiche’s book sales for $7.95 and readers cost $48 at Anthropologie.com

Pop of Color
Tired of waiting on the sun to bring an end to this constant overcast? Well, stop waiting and bring out your own sunshine with this bright yellow faux crocodile print clutch. This fun and fashionable statement can be yours for $58 at Anthropologie.com

The Statement Tee
The perfect statement tees are just what you need to let those around you know just how you feel. Nothing says how much you’re enjoying yourself than a tee that reads, “Dear Sunday, Stay a Little Longer.” For $68 at your local Anthropologie.com

While these items may be easily found at a number of retailers. We found them at our local Anthropologie, on a Sunday is rainy April. Thanks for reading!
