My good friend Katherine studies colors and advices on which colors would work for you, taking into account of your skin color, eye color, complexion. She very kindly looked into “my colors”; it was a wonderfully informative, great as well as enjoyable experience. After checking loads of colors on me, it turned out that I am an “Autumn” woman, and my colour characteristics are muted, deep and warm. Now I have a wonderful swatch colour wallet, that I can check out what works for me best – and thank goodness, many of the colours are the ones I already like and have been using, and need to think seriously about some old favorites!- What a great investment I thought, knowing which colours would look best on you and avoid expensive shopping mistakes! Have you thought about your colours? Here is Katherine’s email if you’d like to know more; firstname.lastname@example.org
And here are a couple of my favorite colours from the garden at the moment! I am not a natural gardener; having lived in big cities and apartments most of my life, I couldn’t go more than enjoying my mothers beautiful pot plants. Being in England now though, it is impossible not to get mesmerised and be inspired by the beautiful gardens and array of flowers – I had been an addict on Chelsea Flower Show and not missing the Gardeners World now!- The children gave presents of a little geranium plant and sunflower seeds in spring, and we eagerly waited for them to grow. And just recently, “they popped!” as my daughter said. We now have a lovely geranium plant with gorgeous leaves and beautiful flowers and a lovely array of sunshine, a smiling sunflower in the backgarden. Hope these inspire many more to come!
