Life in colour. April – It’s all about Pink

This month’s colour is Pink

Defined as “A delicate colour that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness, is associated with bubble gum, flowers, babies, little girls, cotton candy, and sweetness.” 

 My take is a little different….

“Pink isn’t just a color it’s an Attitude too!” ― Miley Cyrus

Grayson Perrys – Pink Harley

Turner prize winning artist Grayson Perry is known for his bizarre crossdressing as his alter ego ‘Claire’ and his even more bizarre, but highly acclaimed art! Not many people know about his kickass motorbike journey where he toured halfway across Europe on a pink madly decorated motorbike carrying his teddybear and childhood hero, Alan Measles, in a glass shrine on the back. A glass shrine? Yes Perry had seen the popemobile and knew his teddybear deserved nothing less than the pope…..  

Fashion or food – or is that fashionable food?

Just a selection of pink foods and drinks devoured during my travels. 


I had never seen pink beer so any excuse to drink or eat a bit more colour into my life.

Or you can just wear pink….

Life in colour – 2021 March- Green

Green is for Go  – so let’s go on a journey along green pathways

Through the mossy green forest…

After our walk through the forest, we might meander alongside the stream where  fish swim beneath the water lilies…

And splash across and around waterfalls…

Waterfalls

Wondering what is beyond the green gates, we could climb up the stairs ..

Or we can peek through doors to a courtyard which is inviting, cool and green!

Let’s hire a lime e-bike to explore Berlin…

Maybe look for different greens reflected in the architecture….

Returning back down the path through my favourite leafy foliage

Well – that was a memorable  trip around the world of green. I hope you enjoyed it too.

2:Life in colour -2021 Part 2 – Yellows to make me mellow

Mellow Yellows found during my travels – 

The yellow umbrella to guide the walking tour in Prague – guide will help you stay mellow whilst sightseeing – well maybe not lost anyway.

The children’s playground at the departure lounge in Gothenburg so the travelling kids can burn off some energy before the long haul flight.

Back in NZ  – and the yellow sunlit hills framed by the foliage welcomed us home. 

Now it is time to explore our own backyard. Our old camping haunts -the golden sands of Totaranui in the Abel Tasman National Park.
