Weekend Roundup - March 26

This weekend, the annual Cherry Blossom Festival gets underway in Washington, D.C. The cherry blossoms are bursting into bloom, and it's supposed to snow tomorrow morning. What gives with the weather? Is it winter or spring? As we DC-types worry about what wet snow might do to the majestic blossoms, escape with us to a beauty-full world.

Givenchy has released their special Harvest Collection of perfumes for this year, and Jane has fallen for one of them - all over again. Even the limited-edition packaging is gorgeous. Head over to Daly Beauty to see it.

It's time to stock up on sun protection. See Chelsea's favorite products to protect your skin and hair at BeautyXposé. Despite potential snow this weekend, we will see strong sun soon.

Chanel's Rouge Coco Shine will be released on April 6. Some of the stores are taking pre-orders. Amy showed us swatches at Café Makeup to help us decide which ones to purchase. I'll have some swatches for you this weekend. The shades have arrived at the stores here! We just can't buy them.

Sabrina featured the Burberry Beauty blushes for spring at The Beauty Look Book. Let us know if one pops onto your I-want list.

While we are talking blushes, you will want to see Laurie's choices to satisfy her passion for pink at Product Girl.

Gaia showed us a gorgeous taupe nail polish from Rescue Beauty Lounge at The Non-Blonde. We agree: it's gorgeous! Not sure why feline Betty was looking the other way.

Primers can make such a difference in the appearance of your skin! Visit Fab over Forty to find out why Kari loves Dior's Skinflash Primer. Hint - it will erase your fatigue.

A few times each year, Bare Escentuals creates bareMinerals eye shadow to benefit a charity. The latest shadow is a pretty and complex glimmer called Sweet Smile. See it up close on Kelly and then enter to win her giveaway contest at Gouldylox Reviews.

Want to see some horrendous plastic surgery? Debbi at DivaDebbi drew everyone's attention to a site that features botched jobs on celebrities.

I went on a Le Métier de Beauté Lip Crème tear about a week ago after I fell in love with the first one I purchased. See the colors I bought - and love - here at Best Things in Beauty. If you are interested in a new lip color, you will also want to see my third round of Dior Addict purchases here. If you have been following my Dior Addict shop-a-thon, you won't be surprised that I bought another one yesterday!

I hope you spend your weekend somewhere warm and cozy. No more snow!
