Hello my beautiful friends,
I am sure you have all been witnessing the recent colouring book craze! There are new colouring books popping up everywhere from floral and patterned designs to movie and series images. A lot of the colouring books are also being advertised for mindfulness and meditation, some including quotes and ideas to contemplate on whilst colouring. I love that it is such a big trend at the moment. I believe it is important for people of all ages to have a creative outlet; and colouring is a great way to switch off and just unwind as you become engulfed with the drawings in front of you.
Last year I treated myself to Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom which has so many beautiful patterns and I got stuck in as soon as I got home happily disappearing for 2 hours to paint an elephant in watercolours. Admittedly I haven’t used it as much as I would like because I really struggle with giving myself me time to unwind, even when I know it does me so much good! I know I need to work on that, and will be trying my best to relax and do some more colouring. I would definitely recommend you treat yourself to some nice pencils and a colouring book too and give it a try if you haven’t already!
Tip: Look on amazon, way way cheaper than buying in shops like WHSmith’s, although you could have a look in the shop to see which book you actually like best
Love Carina xo
