My favourite colour up until recently has always been a bold, bright red. And I thought I wasn't alone there. I'm convinced I had heard or read something stating that red was the most popular colour amongst women, but a quick google told me otherwise... apparently it's blue. Same as the fellas.
Whilst hunting around for this mystical piece of research I'd once read, I did find out that women see red differently to men. Where she sees crimson, burgundy, and tomato. He sees red. Just plain ol' red. Apparently the reason men can't see the many variations, is something to do with the X chromosome-and women have two X chromosomes, blah blah (sorry, can you tell I did a psychology degree?).
Up until now I've never been a big fan of pink; probably because of it's gender associations. I'm even part of the Pink Stinks group on facebook. And having two girls made me even less inclined to it. Luckily my two have never had that pink thing. You know, where they have to have the pink cup. Or have to dress head to toe in a symphony of pinks. Bleugh. Shopping for girls clothes and toys has always got my back up... why does it all have to be bloomin pink?!
But, these days I'm being gently swayed towards it.
Maybe it's because I keep coming across all these lovely (and I mean really lovely) beads.
Maybe it's because these days I'm thinking about jewellery colours that look good on me (and other people) rather than just my favourite hues.
Maybe it's a fashion thing.
Maybe it's just because....
I'm thinking it could be a summer thing, and I'll be back onto the rich reds and purples again when winter comes round again, but for now I'm in the pink.
In the interests of research I would be really interested to know what your favourite colour is... please leave a comment below if you have a minute.
