Spring Colour

I’ve been so crazy about colour lately! I know it’s because of Spring and all but I just can’t help myself. Colour has been making me so happy. In fact, I’ve been going on a colour rampage by painting all of my picture frames bright, vibrant colours. I also made an easy, colourful “painting” for my new home:

This DIY is so simple. I remember reading about it online a few weeks ago but I cannot for the life of me remember where I read it. UPDATE: found it at A Beautiful Mess! Anyway, all I did was hop over to Canadian Tire and picked out some paint swatches that look nice together. Then I took a trip to Salvation Army and found an inexpensive frame. I took out the old, outdated picture and glued these onto the existing foam board already in the frame. If you want to get really fancy you could cut the swatches so they didn’t have the names or numbers of the paint on them but I preferred to keep everything in tact.

In addition to this, I’ve been wearing coral like there’s no tomorrow. Here are my ‘go to’ makeup items at the moment:

Revlon nailpolish: Coral Me Wild & Revlon lipstick: creme 750 Kiss Me Coral

And to finish this post off, here are some places in my new apartment where I found some colour!


Scarf: Le Chateau (bought at least 5 years ago)

Jacket: Urban Outfitters

Tank-top & Belt: H&M

Skirt: Thrifted

Tights: Sears

Boots: Locale

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted an outfit! Yesterday the sun was shining and the birds were chirping so I thought I’d try my hand at some colour. I wore this outfit for a walk around Point Pleasant with my grrl Gab (check out her new layout!) and then a jaunt down to Cheese Curds located in Dartmouth which was a complete fiasco in a good way. It was definitely an experience and it was well worth it (I may do a seperate post on this restaurant soon!). Anyway it’s surprising how good I felt wearing colour yesterday–vibrant and alive! It’s been awhile since we’ve seen sun so I made the best of it.

Hope everyone is enjoying some sun too!
