Post image for What Purple Says About You

I find it mesmerizing that specific colors can be so strongly connected to certain emotions or ideas. This week’s trend on our site is called Purple Haze, and with Amethyst as February’s birthstone, it seems there would be no better a time for such a trend. Purple is the color of magic and mystery. It has the ability to lift your spirits while simultaneously calming your mind. Loving the color purple says a lot about you. If you feel a strong fondness toward the color purple, it’s probably also true that… Read more »

Love the purple. Thanks for the insights.

I am a real lover of purple because it's not to burly and it's not to boyish so that's why I like the color purple

i'd prefer you not refer to her braids as "tribal." unless you can properly identify what "tribe" they might belong to i find it offensive to associate the generic tribal identity that minimalizes the voices of the identities behind it. peoples identities and traditions aren't fashion trends and because this blog has such a heavy influence i'd be proud of you guys to uphold that. thanks for all the beauty you share.

This week we are all about the color purple.  Purple clothing, purple pigments, and of course…purple hair!  Read more »

Hair chalks are indeed a great way to add colored highlights to your hair but it would be easier using colored hair extensions. There is a wide range of colored extensions including purple one's available at http://www.ludischarminginstinct.com/product-category/highlight-clip-in-hair-extension that you can readily use.

I love that you guys decided to celebrate the color purple all month long! I just recently made a purple flower crown to match my lavender hair! Thank you ladies for the great post! I wonder how hair chalk will work over purple hair...

Post image for Musical Muse: Jade Castrinos

Jade Castrinos of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is one of my favorite style icons from the world of music.  She seems like she came straight out of the 60’s, with her hippie spirit and style that would fit right in at Woodstock or Haight-Ashbury during the summer of love. Read more »

Post image for A Purple Haze Vignette

Our trend this week is based around the color purple and the feeling that it gives you. One of my favorite colors is lilac, I love the softness and lightness it gives off, so when this trend launched I was more than happy to create a vignette of my favorite purple items online right now.

Post image for Recipe: An Easter Favorite From The UK

When I was young and Easter was approaching, I always looked forward to these little treats that we used to make and give to our friends and family. To this day, come March they are constantly on my mind. I find it hard not to make them! These simple, quick, and easy treats are fun and cheerful to make and will take up no time at all – all you need is shredded wheat, chocolate to melt, and mini eggs!

these are also an awesome (and healthy) dessert when you use Fiber One original cereal instead of shredded wheat- when it's not Easter I love to mix shredded coconut in! so good.

Post image for Style File: Spell And The Gypsy Collective

The girls behind the Spell and the Gypsy Collective line are cool, creative, and show a style that’s so fitting to their eclectic designs that you can’t help but be intrigued by the fringe, the patterns, and the layers and layers of accessories. They do that hippie-chic so well, with a modern rodeo kind of feel, and you can always expect to see feathers, turquoise, and leather peeking out from somewhere in their designs. We caught up with one half of the sister duo behind the label for this week’s style file.

Post image for Color Inspiration: Purple Haze

I’ve always loved the color purple.  A beautiful mixture of vibrant red and mellow blue, coming together to create a unique and bold shade.  The color has long been associated with royalty, but to me it always brings to mind things like lavender, amethyst, and of course the Jimi Hendrix song.

My favourite colour :o) I have recently bought some of the pieces in the plum/purple collection, I love them, I can't wait for my maxi cardigan to arrive :o) Thanks again for the amazing feature on Spell and the Gypsy Collective. I am so excited that this shop is in Australia! I can't believe I didn't know about it. I can see myself wearing pretty much everything in their collection :o) Another great Aussie designer/shop also from the Byron area (I think??) is My Sunday Feeling. Totally unique dresses.

Post image for The Seven Chakras For A Better You

The seven chakras are the energy centers in your body in which energy flows through. Ever since I started practicing yoga I have been aware of these energy points in my everyday life to help me feel balanced, healed, and open. If one of these energies is blocked, it can lead to an illness, so it’s important to understand what each chakra (energy point) means in order to keep the energy in your body flowing nicely.

you should look up the book eastern body western mind by anodea judith. i learned about it in my yoga teacher training-it talks about psychological issues and issues/traumas from childhood and how they influence and throw off your chakras. super interesting read
