Hubba Bubba - Radiant Orchid

I am not going to lie -- when Emerald was chosen as the color of the year last year, I did an insane happy dance. No really - imagine being a red-head who's hair color runs so deep there really is no way to hide it.

No matter what industrial hair coloring you want to mention -- trust me, I've tried it.  I even went platinum once -- and my hair turned out the color of the year for 2012, Tangerine Tango.

In fact -- the last time there was a color my skin and hair could truly pull off was 2010 -- and I just wasn't a big fan of turquoise.

So along comes Emerald Green -- plays off my hair perfectly, plus adds a little sparkle to my already green eyes.  Trust me I needed that "coolness" for a year.

But, 2013 is over and now we have a new "color of the year"  and judging by my mother's love of it and how well she pulls it off (having red hair also), I just may grow to love Radiant Orchid. Certainly I can get away with a little pop, right?

See, here's the thing about Orchid -- it's not just one color, which makes it fabulous for me. Just look -- you can you choose a million colors that all fit into the umbrella.  Nice, right?

See -- they're all a form of radiant orchid.

Want to add some color, but not commit to jewelry?  Check out Sparrow and Joy -- she makes the most darling clutches, wallets and handbags.  She also made me a key-holder when my car key broke. Genius.

Here is an example of her work -- in another hot spring color: Sand.
