50 Ways To Add More Colour To Your Life

It will come as no surprise that I love colour; anybody who knows me, reads my blog, or follows my social media accounts could tell you I'm pretty darn obsessed with all things colourful. I'm a self-confessed colour-junkie and I don't care who knows it!

Colour makes me happy, so I try to inject in in to all areas of my life from the clothes and make up I wear to the home decor I buy, the crafts I make to my blog photography, and everything in between. Anything to make my life that little more colourful! Life is too short to live in black and white.

I truly believe that you can never have too much colour in your life. A splash of colour can help to brighten a mood and lift your spirits, and even help you through those dark and dreary Autumn days. It adds personality to your life and your style, and plenty of fun to the most mundane of daily tasks. And most importantly, it can bring happiness to both you and the people around you, and remind you that you don't always have to take life or yourself too seriously.

I've always found it easy to add colour to my life, but I know embracing colour doesn't always come naturally to most people, so I thought I'd write a list of simple ways to add more colour to your life for anybody who wants to live a little more colourfully. 

So, here are my 50 ways to add more colour to your life:
