A new me

After all the celebrations this year I thought it was time I changed my profile picture. I have to admit the previous picture was rushed and not thought through.

I think the new picture is just purrrfect. It's much more in keeping with my personality. What do you think?

A big thanks to Phil. You can find more of his work on his website

Pantone Colours

     Ultramarine Green

We've had an overall look at the trending colours for autumn/winter. Now for a closer look at ultramarine green, which I have to say is one of my favourites.

For once Pantone's description is quite muted. Ultramarine is simply described as being a deep, cooling blue green. It's far more than that. I think it's more vibrant than cooling with the richness of malachite.

In Pantone's preview Charlotte Ronson describes her signature colour as 'representing the richness of a bohemian lifestyle.'

As usual, here's a selection from Etsy to make you want more.

Shock of the new

I've been a very naughty blogger. I've failed miserably these last few months. My only excuse is a rubbish, overheating computer that finally died. It will not be moaned.

I promise I'll do better when I figure out how to use my new Apple computer and my new camera.

In the meantime I'll leave you with pretty pictures of autumn in Bute Park, Cardiff.

We stared at the squirrel for ages. Beth thought he was stuffed. He didn't even blink for about 10 minutes.

I think I might have cracked it. Now to catch up with all your news.
