If red’s your favourite colour…

12 Oct

Red is the next colour in my series of ‘what your favourite colour says about you’! Now I have to admit, red is right up there with my favourite colours. Not quite as fav as yellow is, but it comes close. (I’m choosing the ‘Red is usually chosen by people with open and uncomplicated natures’ to describe me then… and leaving the other crazy bits out like people who like red could be unaware of their short comings. That just sounds like crazy talk 🙂

So here’s what Devine Caroline says about the colour Red!

The color of strength, health, and vitality, red is often the color chosen by someone outgoing, aggressive, vigorous, and impulsive—or someone who would like to be! It goes with an ambitious nature but those who choose it can be abrupt at times, determined to get all they can out of life, quick to judge people and take sides. Red people are usually optimistic and can’t stand monotony; they are rather restless and not at all introspective, so they may be unaware of their own shortcomings. They find it hard to be objective and may blame others for any mishaps.

Quiet people with a preference for red may feel the need for the warmth, strength, and life-giving qualities of the color, or they blanket their true feelings under a sober exterior. Red is usually chosen by people with open and uncomplicated natures, with a zest for life.

    When I’m sleep deprived I cannot wear anything red. I just feel more irritated for the whole day. Wonder why?

      Wow…. I don’t know much about ‘colour therapy’ but do believe that colours can impact us in so many ways… I’m impressed that you put two and two together and realized wearing red on a sleep deprived day makes it worse… you’re ten steps ahead of me – I’m lucky to know my own name on those days 🙂 Do you know what your happy colour is?

        Definitely purple/ deep magenta. Boosts my confidence!

    Red is my favourite colour 🙂

    I had been looking for size 4 red converse takkies all over Joburg this past year (like the ones in your last pic) and I’m happy to report I bought myself a pair in Thailand a few weeks ago. They are one of my new favourite buys!

      oh my goodness! I’m also looking for a pair or red converse takkies so I’m uber uber jealous! Jealous you were in Thailand as well, but probably more jealous you got a red pair of converse!

    love how they paint framed the photos in the nursery, apparently red keeps a child hyperactive though (my nursery was red, doc told mum CHANGE IT). agreed with mommygosleepynow on the purple. hence my room being a deep purple at the moment 😛
