Pantone colour for 2017 is Greenery

Finally- a colour that’s not a variant on grey. Whether it’s Rose Quartz or Marsala, let’s be honest there were some pretty tame, hygge-inducing (or sleep-inducing) colours on trend the last few years. 2016 as years go, was a little bit of a mess, so it’s good to see Greenery, sweeping in and encouraging a fresh start. We need it.

School of Life this Christmas

The School of Life is open all year round, not just at Christmas. They do amazing courses and fun get togethers…..and they also do brilliant presents for you and your friends and family. Christmas is a tricky time. When gift-giving takes up so much time and energy, we can easily become impatient with the things we buy. Joining in with all those who, when they want to pinpoint the root cause of corruption in our age, only need to point the finger at our attachment to material things. We’re apparently sick because we’re so materialistic, so fixated on brand products and nice new things.
