Autumn Photography

Autumn is such a lovely season to try to capture in a photograph, with all the changing colours and beautiful contrasts.

Poem: Mental Health and Fatigue

Spreading Some Positivity

This week's post was meant to be my final part to my psychology of colour series, but I have just moved back to university and moved into a new flat. So I haven't had a lot of time, or been in the mood to do the research for the final post. I've been busy sorting out… Continue reading Spreading Some Positivity

The Psychology of Colour

I've always been interested in the psychology of colour and the idea that different colours have the power to effect our mood. You've probably already heard things like "blue has a calming and soothing effect", "yellow makes you joyful" and "red is associated with passion, love, danger" etc. Popular psychology has really been taken with… Continue reading The Psychology of Colour
