As I look out the window to ice & snow (…in April!!) I can’t help but long for the trees to get their green and the smell of spring air through our open windows. I was over winter January 1…so this weather just isn’t cute anymore. BUT I am looking at the forecast and all I see is sunshine! So to kick off one of the prettiest seasons that (I hope) is finally here to stay, I wanted to share my first #fridayfavourites ever, with a twist on fresh.
Spring means more than just the weather warming up but of fresh starts! It’s a lovely reminder of the beauty of change + if winter can eventually bloom into Spring, so can we! 🌿

Here are a few of my favourite things that freshen up the way you eat, the way you play & the way you feel!
Favourite Fresh Eats
We were recently introduced to the beauty of HelloFresh and I can say with certainty we are properly obsessed! If you haven’t heard of HelloFresh, they basically deliver your dinner on specified days with all fresh ingredients included and pre-prepped! I can’t tell you how stressfree it was on those days to take the guess & the work out of dinner! Whether you have a busy week and need the extra help, or you just don’t love meal planning…HelloFresh is that friend who has your back. Not to mention the recipes are incredibly delicious and healthy. I have already made one of the meals twice because it was so easy and super yummy!
If you are like me and just sometimes feel like ordering in pizza because it’s been one of those days, for the third time that week, I really encourage you to try a HelloFresh box out! You get a big box delivered to your door AND it’s full of food…does it get much better than that?
For my fellow Canadians :: use code BRITTANY40 for 40% off your first box
For my American friends :: use code britstrawbridge for $30 off your first box!
Favourite Fresh Scent
Pharmacia Eau De Parfum
I got this perfume at Anthropologie last year & am completely obsessed! I’ve never had so many compliments wearing a perfume. It’s so pretty & subtle, personally what I think a perfume should be. This eau de parfum comes in 3 different scents, I currently have Fleur D’Oranger but I may just get them all! I could barely decide when I was in the store. Just check out the reviews on this perfume, you’ll be convinced!

Favourite Fresh Accessory
Straw Mini Circle Wristlet
Okay. I’m not the only one obsessing over straw accessories, am I? The purses, the hats, the shoes! I don’t know what era this is returning from but I LOVE it! This straw wristlet is in all my dreams right now! I love me some good purses, but with a diaper bag almost always in tow, a wristlet is more practical!
Favourite Fresh Beauty
Facial Dry Brush
It’s been a long winter. I know, I am sorry, I just can’t let it go! But, I am in full prep mode for Spring which means making my skin feel a lot more loved since it will be seeing more of the sun ( soon, I hope!). I actually didn’t know dry brushing on the face was a thing! But I love the idea and am totally behind it! Some benefits of facial dry brushing include smoothing fine lines, brightens skin, reduces puffiness, detoxifies skin & of course, exfoliates.
Favourite Fresh Inspiration
Fields of Green
So if you have been following me along on Instagram, you’ll know how much I am obsessed with this incredibly charming & beautiful word search book. I find myself sneaking away to read through it or find some words as a pick me up. It’s full of inspiring quotes and just enough creativity to take the edge off – most days I need that!
Right now, the creator & mama-to-be of this wonderful book is giving YOU 15% off with the discount code GREEN15
Favourite Fresh Clean
The Unscented Company
One of my favourite essentials at home has been The Unscented Company products. They are fragrance-free which has been wonderful for some of the skin sensitivities in our home, and they are a socially & environmentally responsible company which is something I will always get behind! They also have an amazing program that allows you to refill your current bottles, reducing the waste of plastic. I apply their hand lotion every night before bed + I have buttery soft hands I can feel good about! I am loving TUC and never looking back!
