There’s something naturally glorious about the color yellow, and it makes us feel… HAPPY! It’s warm, bright and welcoming, and reminds us of summer- what’s not to love?

On a beautiful day like today, when the sun is a-shining and it’s warm and balmy out, I’m deeply drawn to yellow. Clothes, food, flowers- anything really. Heck, this morning I’m even touching up my roots (definitely hoping for more blonde than yellow…)

Can you wear yellow?

If you’re not comfortable with looking like a ray of sunshine, why not try a soft lemon or a deep gold?

Still out of your comfort zone? You can always make a splash with yellow accessories:

Lemons smell like summer, and they look just as good as they taste. Showcase them before making those delicious lemon bars or slicing them into iced water!

On my run this morning, I noticed all the yellow dandelions and other weedy faces blowing in the breeze, and they even looked gorgeous in their yellowness! Although I have yet to make a start on my gardening (tsk tsk), I also found these little surprises had sprouted by my driveway:












In nature, in the stomach, on the body- it’s time to say “Hello, yellow!” and spread a little happiness and sunshine around!


Hope your Friday is fabulous!
