Awesome Bank Holiday Activities

Bank holiday weekends are the best – there are so many things to do with that extra day! And with 3 days to spare (if you’ve managed to clear the calendar of any unwanted relative visits and adult admin tasks) it’s the perfect time to hit the open road and head out on an exciting adventure!

If you’re looking for a little inspiration for your long weekend we’ve pulled together some of our favourite activities. Just have a little scroll down to check them out!

Outdoor cinemas are a unique and fun way to enjoy the best Hollywood has to offer. You could go to one of the locations we’ve suggested below or create your own in your garden… just make sure to use headphones so the neighbours don’t think they’re in Jurassic Park with you!

It may not sound as fun as the other suggestions we’ve given you, but you may enjoy it more than you think!

There are various volunteering opportunities up and down the country. Here’s a website that could help you locate an opportunity close to you: https://do-it.org/

So that’s it folks, we hope we’ve given you plenty of Bank Holiday inspiration! And if you’re looking for the perfect outfit to match your plans, head over to the site here.

 

How a colourful wardrobe can boost your mood!

Do you ever notice that certain colours affect how you feel? Boosting your mood, making you feel more confident or perhaps excited? Maybe you’ve noticed they make you feel calmer or perhaps more comfortable? Well it’s a fact that colour is associated with our emotions and can have a direct impact on how we feel. So what exactly does each colour mean? Take a little scroll down and check out how colour can boost your mood!

As we well know, red is bold and on the warm side of the colour spectrum, evoking strong emotions of love, warmth and due to its brightness; excitement! Perfect for an a adventurous day out  with a loved one or maybe to give you a little bravery for an upcoming event?

Vintage Dancer Dress                                                   

Retro Palms Shirt             

 

Quick to grab attention, yellow is wonderfully bright, reminiscent of days in the sunshine. Yellow evokes the feeling of happiness and joy, giving us a zest for life! So why not add a little joy into your wardrobe with a splash of yellow.

Fruit Of Love Dress                                               

Road Holder Leather Jacket

 

A colour that rarely occurs in our day to day life ,it is often seen as exotic, rare and somewhat intriguing. A mix of the two of the boldest colours on the spectrum (blue and red) when worn, purple can evoke feelings of power and sophistication. Perfect for that upcoming business meeting you have or perhaps a job interview you’re a little nervous for?

Unique Bird Dress

Oriental Shirt

 

Regarded as red’s softer cousin, pink is strongly associated with femininity and in turn when worn or seen can evoke feelings of compassion kindness and more commonly romance! Gents don’t be put off by pink, it’ll showcase your confidence and personality and we reckon the saying ‘real men wear pink’ is spot on!

Reflections T-Shirt

 

Last but certainly not least it’s orange! Full of life, energy and warmth orange is likely to make us feel enthusiastic, an happy and unafraid to stand out! If you’re looking for a pick-me-up or you’re feeling little under the weather, go for orange!

Summer Nights Dress                                                

Suave Summer Blazer

We hope you’ve enjoyed finding out a little more about how colour can make you feel, we certainly enjoyed writing about it!
