Classic blue is imprinted in us as a calm, restful colour. Its brings a sense of peace and tranquility to our busy minds.

With anxiety and other mental health conditions more apparent then ever, this colour is a sign of change and self reflection. Encouraging us to slow down, practise mindfulness and taking better care of ourselves.


Next year we will see this self worth movement continuing to grow...

With new technologies, social media platforms and products all developed to be used for good and the negative aspect will hopefully be a thing of the past.
