Dear friends. Imagine finding your best colours with your eyes shut. In today's post we're finding out about Feeling Colours, a Bath-based business that throws the usual method of colour analysis out of the window. 

Alison Bowker has been running Feeling Colours since 2018. She describes herself as a guide rather than a colour consultant. In her method of colour analysis your body responds to the vibrations of colours. The outcome is a seasonal colour rating and the knowledge that you have a swatch of colours that will flatter you and make you feel fabulous.

A Colorful Phenomenon - and Link-Up

Style blog for the over 50s Is This Mutton on how the Kettlewell Color Club has become a phenomenon, with meet-ups spontaneously happening all over the UK and US

Dear friends.  I wrote a few months ago about the challenges of meeting new friends in midlife, particularly when you've lived in many places and your friends live a long way away. Well, since then I have become immersed in a wonderful organic initiative, built around colour, that has introduced me to many wonderful women.

Experiments with Colour and Tulle - and Link-Up

 Over-50s style blogger Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton undertakes a colour challenge to create an outfit based on cerise pink, acid yellow and white

Hello dear friends. Hope you are all well. My thoughts this week have been with the stricken people of Afghanistan. I hope that common sense will prevail and they will get longer to leave the country. Of course, not everybody will be able to leave, which is the biggest tragedy. I fear for the women and all the progress made, but remain confident that their bright light and spirits will prevail.
