Spring 2014 Roundup

Got shopping on your mind as you get on your way in these warm temps of spring? Before you venture online or to the nearest shopping center, take a look at the ideas compiled here by Shandra Hill Smith for this Spring 2014 Roundup.

Brighten someone’s day just because this spring with a cheerful arrangement such as Modern Enchantment or Pitcher Full of Spring from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Modern Enchantment combines yellow sunflowers, lavender stock and pink calcynia in a cube vase. Delivered in a pitcher that may be used for other purposes later, Pitcher Full of Spring includes yellow tulips with purple iris.

Show off those long legs with new women’s dresses for spring from Kohl’s. The ELLE Pintuck Fit & Flare Ponte Dress features a shirred waistline, scoopneck and cap sleeves.  The word delicate comes to mind as you step into the cream-colored Lauren Conrad Lace Fit & Flare Dress featuring a splitneck style, cap sleeves and a side zipper.

Also, dress up the little lady in the Youngland Striped Dress & Cardigan Set from Kohl’s. The scoopneck dress is sleeveless and includes ¾-inch bell sleeves on the cardigan.

Wear them alone or blend together for your own unique shade. Either way, you’re sure to invite compliments when wearing colors from tarte beauty & the box Amazonian clay eyeshadow quad. Another winner for completing that flawless look: tarte’s super-soft Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Blush that guarantees an airbrushed finish.

Runners will appreciate more cushioning in the New Balance Fresh Foam 980 for men and women. In bright colors and eye-catching design, Fresh Foam 980 looks great for working out or everyday wear.

When it’s time for pampering, head to Honey Salon and Spa in Fayetteville. Located on Hwy. 314, Honey offers full-body massages, deep tissue and spa massages, along with facials and other spa treatments. Hair salon services also are available.
