P is For... Purple

Now I don't know if you have noticed, by looking at either of my blogs, but my favourite colour is purple!

I love purple - can you tell by my past posts? Purple nails, purple posters etc.

Anyway this is a short post about the evolution of my favourite colour - not in history but in my life.

My favourite colour used to be red - I really liked that colour. And luckily at school when we were split in to 'houses' (a bit like at Hogwarts but not quite as fancy) I was put in to the St George House the colour of which was red.

I realised at some point that navy blue went very well with my natural hair colour, and my favourite colour slowly became blue - most of my wardrobe was blue!

So it would seem that somewhere along the line I mixed the two colours together to make purple.

Nine times out of ten if I have to choose between colours, if purple is an option I'll go for that. Of course there are times when the sensible part of my brain chimes in and makes me go for a more practical choice but when the sensible part isn't looking purple is nearly always my colour of choice!

Purple is also my favorite color, but my fondness of red has grown over the years.

My house is a plethora of colors, but a majority is red and purple.

I love me some purple as well, although I'm a recent convert. My wardrobe is still mostly blue.
