Do you find yourself addicted to colours? I definitely find I buy colours in cycles. Last year was all about the brick reds and oranges. This year it’s turquoise. I think it’s cemented ever since I brought my friend E a turquoise bracelet (which I may steal back, watch out).
I just love it. It’s bright and soothing at the same time. Right now I’ve got turquoise nails, a turquoise wallet, tea pot, scarf, bookmark in my diary (which is actually a ticket to the Van Gogh museum, uh, because, I’m annoyingly arty like that), and maybe, one day, I’ll have turquoise moccasins! Turquoise is even the accent colour on my tumblr! (You heard it here first).
I’ve compiled a tonne of photos featuring the most beautiful colour of all, and today, all will be revealed. Some darker, greener, bluer, lighter than others, but all… TURQUOISE! Enjoy!
