live life in colour

Well, if we ever needed colour in our lives, now is most definitely the time!  The hope of a brighter new year is somewhat on hold as we spend yet more days in Lockdown.   More days at home, working, teaching just simply being can feel monotonous to say the least.  

Why not punctuate your week with bright colours to lift your mood?  And yes, research suggests that colour absolutely does affect our mood and even the way others respond to us.  In 1974 researchers Keith Jacobs and Frank Hustmyer discovered that colour can even change your heart rate, blood pressure and respiration.*  Amazing.

festival style at home

Along with so many other British annual institutions, Glastonbury has sadly been cancelled due to the pandemic.  Unsurprising given the huge numbers of people who make their annual pilgrimage to Worthy Farm in Somerset particularly this year as the Festival celebrates its 50th year.  The idea of sticking to the '1 metre plus rule' in those numbers and when getting lost in the music and the moment is frankly inconceivable.  The BBC are currently deciding on their broadcasting line up to bring golden moments from past years so we can enjoy #GlastoAtHome.

Festival fashion has always been a big thing driven not least by the need of practicality when slipping and sliding through the muddy British fields, sleeping in a tent with limited privacy and washing facilities.  So we have put together a festival bingo card aka your virtual rucksack packing list.

not just for winter

It is very easy to compartmentalise our wardrobe particularly in the effort of saving space and to pack away our winter woolies with the promise of warmer times and vice versa.   Jumpers being a prime example of this.  

Maybe it is a statement we make to convince ourselves that summer equals warmth.  Although how many times are we caught short when the weather doesn't quite conform to our childlike description of the seasons?  I, for one, never pack away my jumpers and definitely want them easily accessible throughout the year.

royal hues of blue

Blue and all its hues (oh, I do love a rhyme!) is at the forefront of our minds at the moment.  Not least because of the glorious bluebells carpeting our woodland but also because of the exciting arrival of Baby Sussex, Archie.  Are Royal baby boys double blue?

We make no secret of the fact that blue is close to our hearts here at Cove.  Navy, denim, royal, powder, cornflower and cobalt to name but a few are a collection staple.  Blue is a chameleon of colours and with its various different shades there is a colour that suits all skin types, ages and colours.
