Trend Alert: Colour Blocking

My absolute favourite look of the season has got to be the colour blocking trend. While it’s not a brand new concept, it seems to have come back with a bang this spring. Simply put, colour blocking is the use of two or more blocks of colour in one outfit.

I think it’s a really fun trend for the summer and let’s face it, what is summer without bright, happy colours? I’ve seen it in clothes, shoes, bags, nail polish, you name it! Here are a few of my picks:



And, the best part is this fun trend works just as well with eastern clothes! Here are some great shirts from Daaman that incorporate colour blocking:

Mmm… Watermelons!

Watermelons have got to be the best way to beat the summer heat! Sweet, crunchy, refreshing, they’re the perfect antidote to long, scorching hot days. And if you need something on the go there’s one simple solution: watermelon juice!
A tall, chilled glass of this heavenly drink is just what I need after a long day at work… or a long day of shopping! And here are some added bonuses:
-          It’s fat- and cholesterol-free
-          It’s made up of about 91% water
-          Very low sodium content
-          Rich in vitamins A and C
So what are you waiting for? Join the watermelon frenzy! Try this easy juice recipe to get started:

·  2 cups chopped seeded watermelon
·  1 cup crushed ice
·  1/4 teaspoon black pepper
·  fresh mint (optional garnish)
·  1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
·  1 tablespoon honey (optional)

·  1 Combine watermelon, ice and black pepper in a blender.
·  2 Blend until smooth.
·  3 Garnish with mint. Add honey and lemon juice, if needed.
