Every year Pantone announces their colour of the year. Radiant Orchid is the colour of 2014. This shade from the purple family is thought to enhance creativity and innovation. It’s absorbing undertones allow it to pair well with many shades in it’s surrounding palette. This unique shade of purple is said to have a “beguiling charm” that will allure the attention of others. Hmmm, Radiant Orchid sounds somewhat magical!

I decided to give it a try with a new lip stick, a tri-coloured manicure, and a striped sweater…
