12 Fun Ways To Play With The ‘Color Of The Year’: Ultra Violet

After much anticipation, they’ve finally released the Pantone color of the year, Ultra Violet. For those of you who may be unfamiliar, Pantone is a company dedicated to the intricate science of color. They offer color matching services in industries such as fashion, interiors, and graphic design. Not to mention, their Instagram is one of my favorite places for some creative and aesthetically pleasing color inspo.

Ultra Violet is bold, rich, and according to the psychology of color, promotes wisdom, creativity, and magic. Just what the world could use a little of right now! This deep purple makes me think of the fields of lavender that Mackenzie and I visited last summer in Provence. It also makes me reminisce about Cadbury’s chocolate foil wrapper, and eating the delicious treat by the fire at Christmas time back in England when I was a child. Purple is often associated with royalty and luxury, perfect as I binge my way through The Crown, and pretend I live in a palace. So I guess you could say it’s a very wistful, trans-seasonal tone…right? Either way, I’m welcoming the color into my closet and our home. Here are my favorite ways to incorporate Ultra Violet into your life:

1. Go the whole hog and paint a room, a wall, or a piece of furniture. It will lift your mood instantly. Pair it with cobalt accessories, and warm, deep neutrals like caramel and dark brown wood.

2. Eat this!

3. Throw a very English, purple, tea party.

4. Add some sumptuous velvet to your living room.

5. Ok, this one’s very relevant to me right now, but my little girl has got to have this top.

6.The smallest commitment, your nails.

7. If you haven’t already, this is a must read.

8. I can’t live without my planner.

9. I can’t live without these boots either.

10. Do these even need a caption!?

11. One for the hubby to add to my wishlist!

12. I’m finally feeling brave enough to wear purple matte lips, and loving them!

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
  • I don’t usually post throwbacks, but 1. my face ain’t cute right now after waaaay too little sleep! And 2. I just found this pic from the moment we arrived on honeymoon. I stepped out onto our balcony in Positano and took a deep breath and wow - what a view! Take me back to Italy!
