Lemon Zest

There’s something so uplifting about the scent of fresh lemons. Delicious, beautiful and loaded with vitamin C, lemons are fast becoming my antidote for winter gloom. I’m even considering getting a little lemon tree for my kitchen, how awesome would that be?
Why stop with actual lemons when there’s lemon infused beauty products to be had? Citrus scents are always my fave, which is why I’m so curious about this one. As for lotions I already have (and love) this fresh one.
Not one to ever have too much of a good thing, I’m thinking lemon drops as earrings, a bright citrus trimmed scarf, yellow fringe sandals and a bold sunny wallet would all make great additions to my somewhat neutral wardrobe.  In fact, I’d wear this scarf now with my endless array of grey sweaters and tops…
As for my home, a fun pop of yellow is in order with this fab lucite vase and this sunny candle, (with a lemon scent) which I’ve been eyeing for quite some time (and finally pulled the trigger on)…I know it will look perfect in our family room bookcase, where I’m sure it will lift my spirits till spring…
