1. “In Bloom” Candle

Moderncity + Main’s Spring Collection is out and it’s absolutely scrumptious!

Fragrances include: Georgia Peach (peach, lily, musk); Magnolia Blossom (magnolia, apple, sandalwood); Tomato Leaf (basil, tomato, sage); Lightning Bugs (bergamot, bamboo, violet); In Bloom (honeysuckle, jasmine); Coconut Lime (bergamot, lime, coconut); Sand + Surf (jasmine, orange, cedar); and Linens on the Line (bergamot, rose, sandalwood).

We’re gravitating toward In Bloom, whose fragrance contains notes of honeysuckle and warm jasmine.

2. A Chic Romper

We love a good romper, and local boutique Nicole J has several to choose from! The Madison (pictured here) is the perfect in between season option for fluctuating spring temps with its skirt overlay.

Oh, and want the whole look? She sells shoes and accessories, too!

3. Spring Sweet Treats

Local gem Half Baked Patisserie, recently celebrated their 7th anniversary since opening their doors! (Congrats!!!)

Their daily menu includes a wide range of freshly baked gourmet cupcakes and cake pops. New flavors on their Spring Menu include Lemon Poppyseed, Strawberry Pretzel Salad, Berry Cheesecake, and Cherry Cobbler. Yum!!!

And that’s not all… they also make doughnuts for dogs!!! Pups deserve self-care, too, so grab your pooch a sweet spring treat, too! And follow Half-Baked over on Facebook and Instagram for all their latest treats.

4. An Airbrush Spray Tan

Springtime equals exposed arms and legs. And for some of us, that means revealing ghostly, pale skin that would rival Casper’s! Yikes!

Fortunately, there’s a safe way to get a bronze glow: an airbrush spray tan from Walkin On Sunshine. Choose from a variety of packages.

5. Sorella Apothecary SPF 30

Now that you have glowy skin, keep that skin healthy by applying SPF 30. We love Sorella Apothecary’s Tropical Topical Matte SPF 30, or Quench & Protect Hydrating SPF 30.

Available at both La Belle Studio locations.
