April's here, time to add a few green plants to your home and some color to your wardrobe. The inimitable Prue Leith has certainly pulled the sunshine out of the bag with a range of tops that can't help but raise the spirits!
As many of you are from overseas you won't have had the opportunity to see a recent mood-lifting TV program 'The Piano', where amateur pianists were invited to share their talent with the public in various railways stations. As I'm currently learning to play, I was keen to view. I'm sure you will be as moved as we were as I introduce you to Lucy, a blind and autistic 13 year old who wowed passers-by with an incredible performance of Chopin's Nocturne in B-flat minor. See below...
It was just a year ago that we celebrated the 96th birthday of our late Queen Elizabeth. Take another peep at my tribute to our Rainbow Queen? (see right)
Lucy's magical performance!
With limited skills of communication Lucy's musical talent is pure genius. Enjoy her performance. She was subsequently invited to perform in the final concert at the Royal Festival Hall to life-changing acclaim. You can see more of Lucy here....
It's easy to have the wrong impression of a color palette. I recently completed a Color Analysis for Kari who has a fair complexion and very bright eyes who says:
"I was shocked to learn I'm Spring as I thought of yellow red and orange!
But with all the information you provided, it was easy for me to follow your decision making and fascinating to watch myself either glowing or paling.
Having lived as a Summer for so long, this will be a great new adventure and I thank you for finding my true season.
Thank you again. Kari, USA
Pamela says: Actually Kati, I think you're thinking about the much stronger colors from the Autumn palette. In Spring you'll find light clear reds, pale gold and fresh zingy shades. Nothing heavy about Spring!
