Snacks and Self-care This Spring

It’s that time of the year! Spring time: when the weather is beginning to warm up and the flowers are in full bloom. The grass is greener, and it’s finally the time to have picnics and majestically gallop through meadows.

And what compliments this lovely season more than some lovely spring treats? Whether you like rice Krispies, cookies, or pastries galore, be sure to make use of spring colors! One easy way to do so is by using food coloring.

Here are a few of my favorite spring recipes, each including food coloring:

Non-edible goodies

Lush is a must during spring time. If you enjoy taking bubble baths, check out their easter egg selection of bath bombs. Lush has a wide variety of organic, healthy ingredients placed in their easter eggs. Some of these include sea salt, rose oil, dried rose petals, lemon oil, olive oil, and other products designed to moisturize.

Enjoy spring, and make sure you have tons of goodies!
