March is finally here, and Spring is right around the corner! This is one of my favorite times of the year — flowers are blooming, fashion is changing, and the hope of warm weather puts everyone in a happier mood. Unfortunately, the beginning of March also marks the end of OnSugar's Love.Write.Win competition. As we mull over all of the wonderful entries, I wanted to highlight some of our favorite posts from this past week.
- Tea for Three's gallery of things she loves encompasses everything from her precious dogs to her back porch to the awesome climbing wall shown here. I am insanely jealous of her back porch. It looks like the perfect place to relax after a long, hard day or climb.
- Another thing I am jealous of, Food Orleans's awesome life. She eats well, has a ton of fun, and gets to live in beautiful New Orleans. Her great-aunt's 100th birthday in the French Quarter involves a blue boa, parasol, and a goat. It is definitely worth checking out.
- Our wonderful week-four winner, Life, Love & Lace, sweetly answered our 23rd question of what makes you laugh. Her beautiful son seems to be a budding comedian, imitating Nemo and dressing up.
- Hollywood in Silicon Valley was taken back to her childhood when she found a hidden rope swing on her hike. I can't remember the last time I was on a swing — looks like a blast!

Question 27: What are three OnSugar blogs you follow and why?
One of the many benefits of writing on the OnSugar platform is the plethora
of amazing blogs to follow. It's been difficult to narrow it down to just three, but here it goes:
Queen of the Quarter Life Crisis is always a good source for product reviews, and her Gift Guides inspire a generous present-giving mood. Also, I enjoy a girl who knows how to party.
I am always inspired by the new and different, and Life, Love and Lace does both. She uses OnSugar's layout skills to show some serious beauty, and her passion for fashion comes through with fresh content every day.
Third, I'm a regular reader of At First Blush. With an interesting take on design and some killer apps for hosting a party, I'm covered.
And just because I'm a rule-breaker, I'll add one more for good measure — because I am surely making this body butter this weekend, courtesy of Beautiful Basics.
Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable.
