Spring Fling Tag!

Finally, Friday is here! I'm so ready for the weekend, especially because it's suppost to be really nice spring weather and I'm planning a little picknick with my husband for his birthday. I'm totally getting in the Spring mood and I thought this tag was the perfect thing to do right now.

The Spring Fling Tag is created by Holly (misshollyberries) and Hannah (beautychats) on YouTube, but I've seen my friend Lu do this on her blog. I thought that was a great idea and decided I classified as "everybody who wants to do this", so let's get started with the questions!

1. What eye palette do you/will you use most this spring?

I just got the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette from my lovely friends for my birthday so I will be using that a lot. The colors are really nice and perfect for spring.
When I want a pop of color, I think I'll be reaching for my Sleek Garde of Eden palette. I love a green eye look and these shadows are really nice and fresh. I did a full review on this palette, check it out here.

2. What blush in your collection is a spring must-have? What about lipstick?

I've only recently started loving blush, so I don't own a ton of them, but I did pick up a spring blush last week, Dior Coral Cruising and am planning to give that a good go this Spring. It's a coral matte blush and I absolutely love it!

I tend to be a little boring when it comes to my lipsticks, but for this spring, I'm trying to branch out of my red and berry comfort zone. I picked up a purple lipstick and have been rocking that a lot actually and I absolutely love the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks. The formula is fantastic, they have some really nice colors and they stay all day. My favorite is the hot pink one, Ole Flamingo!

3. What nail polishes do you love to wear in the Spring?

I think the better question would be what polishes I don't love during Spring. I tend to rock every kind of polish, no matter the season, but in Spring I do like the brighter, colorful polishes. But I didn't name my blog DarknTwisty for no reason, I love my vampy colors all year long.

4. What is your signature spring scent?

I don't have a signature scent, I tend to rotate a lot of the time. When I finish a perfume, I go sniff a bunch of different ones and buy the one that smells the nicest to me. My most recent purchase is Elie Saab Le Parfum Intense and I love that one. I also received a sample of the L'eau Couture and I'm thinking about picking that one up too, because it's a little fresher and just more appropriate for Spring.

5. What is on your spring break agenda?

This question makes me a little sad... I just turned 35, so my spring break days are long gone and I'm feeling a little old right now...

6. What trends are you looking forward to the most? Fashion, Makeup, Nail Polish, etc.

I don't do fashion, not in a big way anyway. I hate shopping for clothes. I can't deal with all the stores, constantly having to change into another outfit, things not fitting properly... nope... not a fan! But make up and nail polish is a whole nother story! I LOVE it and tend to go a little crazy if I let myself. I can't wait to see what the new trends will be this year, bring it on!

7. Do you have a spring skincare must-have?

I don't have a specific spring skincare product, I tend to use the same things year round, but I do have a new skincare love that I actually picked up because of Holly: Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash. Oh my... this made such a difference for me. My skin never looked better!

8. What is spring like where you live?

Spring is tricky over here. It's never the same. One year it's pooring with rain all season, another year it's snowing and freezing and this year it's really bright and sunny so far. Give me sun every year though!

9. Florals: gotta have em or make them stop?

I love florals, but in moderation. My favorite floral is a dress that has a big floral pattern. It's actually my favorite spring and summer dress because it's so colorful. But I don't like the grandma florals, if you know what I mean. That's just a bit to much for me.

10. Favorite thing/activity to do in the spring?

I love sitting outside, with friends, having a barbeque and sipping a chilled glass of white wine. Nothing relaxes me more.

That's it for this tag, all the questions answered!
Feel free to do this tag, I'm not going to tag specific people, but if you decide to do it, I'd love to read your answers!

Have a great weekend,


  1. Super leuk om te lezen !

  2. Great Tag Anca...I love your dark and vampy colours but you also rock light colours!!

  3. YAY! I'm so glad you did the tag! Great job including pictures! ♥

    1. I loved your answers, so couldn't resist doing this :D

  4. Awesome. I don't have the naked three but love urban decay. Red nails and red lips...va va voom. I am sad to stay I don't do red lips either. I really do think it has to do with being a bigger girl. I don't like to attract to Much attention and I think I feel like I can't pull it off.

    1. I'm a bigger girl too, but you know I love my red nails (and lips)!
      I should really do a full face selfie on instagram someday so you can put a face to my name, but I'm scared... lol.
