BlueGreen


I love reading little notes about how colour can affect our day-to-day mood. Taken with a pinch of salt, of course. They are quite like Horoscopes. Not always 100% accurate. But they are too good to resist.

It is like that sequined jacket you spotted, say in Primark or Forever 21. You know you shouldn't. You know you should be saving your money for that timeless piece, but alas, the sequined jacket has powers of persuasion. *Buy me and you'll look beautiful and bright. You know, you just know, I am so right.*


Green is balanced, easy going and harmonious.
Blue is calm, soothing and peaceful.
A plait is a care free, easy to do hairstyle.
Mix these all together and what do you get?
A relaxed & stress-free person.
Yes to that.


BlueGreen for you?
