Bloggers are living a colourful life with Joe!

To celebrate longer days, warmer nights and an explosion of colour back in our wardrobes we teamed up with a load of cool bloggers from all over the country to help us Live a More Colourful Life.

 

We sent them all their favourite item from the new Joe Browns collection and challenged them to take a picture of it against the most colourful background they could find (or create).

 

They certainly didn’t disappoint…

Colourful experiences

Colourful Experiences

We live in a colourful world and we love to get involved with all things bright and beautiful- But we’re not the only ones! Take a look at these vibrant experiences people get involved with all the time! Maybe you can too…

 

  1. The Great Barrier Reef- Australia

We’ve all heard of the Great Barrier Reef, famous for over 1,400 miles of coral reefs, fish and sea life. It’s so big and so colourful the reef can be seen from outer space! Millions of tourists visit it every year to see this phenomenal display of colour and life. You could go out in a glass bottom boat, see it all on a helicopter ride or get up close and personal and go diving in the reefs.

We’d love to swim into this little guy!

  1. Holi- The Hindu Festival Of Colour

Holi is an annual festival held to celebrate colour and is often called the ‘Festival of Sharing Love’. It begins the night before with a bonfire, singing, dancing and one big party. They follow this up with a huge paint fight the next day, where everyone throws powdered paint and coloured water in every colour imaginable. Everyone gets involved; old, young, rich, poor, friends and strangers… No-one’s safe!

Holi-Festival

 

 

  1. Mardi Gras- New Orleans, USA

Another festival, but this one lasts around two whole weeks. Parades and masquerade balls are central to this festival which ends on Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday. People don colourful masks and costumes and take to the streets to dance and party while the parade floats go by. People on the floats toss “throws” into the crowds including bright, multicoloured beads, doubloons (coins) and Moon Pies. When it’s all over the only sign of Mardi Gras is the beads hanging from the trees.

  1. Gathering of Nations – Albuquerque, New Mexico

The Gathering of Nations is exactly that. A Pow Wow for Native Americans to get together to celebrate and share their culture and traditions. It’s a three day event filled with dancing, drums and incredible costumes. Huge feathered headdresses, beads and painted faces, everyone is bold and fabulous. They even have a nation of Native American motorcyclists who ride in an event called Red Thunder Rolling which is used to raise funds and awareness to keep the culture alive.

Cool huh?

  1. Las Vegas- Nevada, USA

Viva Las Vegas! The City of Lights is approximately 4.2 miles of some of the world’s largest hotels and casinos. When we say largest hotels we mean it! Some of them have shopping malls, their own casinos, theatres, nightclubs and even rollercoasters!  Not too far from the strip, there’s the Grand Canyon- a gorgeous natural attraction brimming with bold and beautiful colours.

  1. Springtime- Everywhere!

Here’s one we can all get involved with. Springtime brings flowers, trees and newborn wildlife. Bursting with bluebells, lush green grass and tiny fluffy yellow ducklings, this is easily one of the most beautiful times of year wherever you are. It’s a great time to take a stroll in the country and see everything Mother Nature has to offer.

Colourful Waters

Fancy seeing something new?

 

Everyone knows about the 7 wonders of the world, but check out 7 of some of the most colourful waters of the world!

 

(We apologize now for the red one – it does look a bit gross).

 

 

Lake Hillier, Australia

This looks like something from Willy Wonkers Chocolate Factory that should taste of bubble gum or candyfloss. We love it. It’s on Middle Island, the largest of the islands that make up the Recherche Archipelago off the coast of Esperance.

 

No one really knows why it’s pink. Scientists reckon that the colour comes from a dye created by bacteria that lives in the salt crusts (or that’s what they want us to think, so they can keep all the bubble gum for themselves!)

Lake-Hillier

 

 

Kelimutu (Three coloured Lake), Eastern Indonesia

These three crater lakes are sat on the same volcanic peak as each other yet are completely different colours – blue, green and red (which sometimes looks green like in our pic). This is the only place on earth where this amazing colour variation takes place.

 

For centuries local people have believed that the lakes are the spiritual resting place of their ancestors and that they change colour according to the mood of the spirit.

Perito Moreno, Argentina

This lake gets its vibrant turquoise colour from light reflecting off suspended glacier ice melt particles. Pretty cool!

 

Glacier

 

 

Blood Falls, Antarctica

This glacier regularly pours out red liquid, making it look like the ice is bleeding – eurgh.

 

(For the science geeks – according to National Geographic: The “falls” are actually a brine, or salt water, mixed with iron from the bedrock below. As bacteria slowly chew the rock, the iron is released into the brine. The salt water and iron combination creates a distinct rust colour when it mixes with oxygen as it reaches the surface. Every day’s a school day.)

 

Blood Falls

 

 

Red salt lake, Tunisia
This lake gets its pink/red tinge thanks to ‘microbial activity’ caused from mineral deposits. The extreme heat of the Sahara Desert keeps the bacteria flowing, thus maintaining the colour. Bit eerie, but beautiful.

Lake Pukaki, New Zealand

If you asked a kid to draw you a lake, they’d probably draw you one this colour. It’s an amazing glacial blue that keeps it’s colour from the glacier’s rock particles. With the stunning snowcapped mountains in the backdrop it makes a pretty cool picture.

 

Pukaki lake and Southern Alps, New Zealand

 

 

Lake Retba, Senegal

Also called ‘Lac Rose’ this lake gets its colour because of algae in the water, which is attracted by a high salt content. And when we say high, we mean high – it’s 40% salt – which apparently makes it easy to float in.  We know what we’re adding to our bucket list!
