If you have been following my blog, you may recall several months ago I revealed my ‘work desk transformation’. It included lots of personal touches in a rose gold colour scheme. The quest for additional items continues. On a recent adventure to a craft store, I spotted a perfect accent piece…a few blush coloured flowers, with a hint of gold glitter. When I saw them, I knew they were destined for my desk. They were calling my name and looking for a home.
My knitting hobby continues. Now that I have a completed a couple of small projects, I figured it was time to start something a little bigger and more challenging…a blanket, for those chilly days at the office. What colour is this blanket? You guessed it, rose gold! The blanket is well underway, but is quite an undertaking. I don’t want to rush making it, as that is when errors will be made. At the rate it is coming along, it should be finished by next fall (or winter), which is completely fine with me.
My rose gold addiction doesn’t end there. If you were to peek into my closet, you will find a variety of accessories from hats, scarves and necklaces in rose gold or blush shades. You will even find a pale pink pair of suede heels. If that wasn’t enough, my love of all things rose gold has also made an appearance in my cosmetic case in products such as lip glosses and eyeshadows (I am a big fan of Rimmel’s Magnif’Eyes Shadow Pallette in London Nudes Calling). Who knows, the popular hue might even make an appearance on my nails.
One other rose gold trend that I have been hearing and seeing lots about lately, that I am not sure if I am ready to jump into, is rose gold hair. I have seen lots of ideas for inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram, which range from very subtle, blush highlights, all the way to a full head of bright pink hair. I know for a fact I am not going to go for the latter. A few subtle highlights, however, might be fun. I am just not sure if I am ready to make the commitment and spend a lot of hard earned money on a hair colour that 1) might not like as good as I thought, 2) might not be ‘cool’ in the near future. Or even worse, 3) both.
I was encouraged when a friend recently told me they discovered a great alternative to expensive salon appointments to get your hair coloured. They recommended an at-home hair colouring system, OverTone. Have you heard of it? I have done some research and am possibly considering taking the leap and maybe trying either their rose gold or pastel pink conditioners. For those of you who know me, this is a big step. I don’t colour my hair very often and when I do, I am very cautious. This product sounds like a relatively low commitment and is considerably less expensive than a trip to a hairstylist. If I do go ahead, I will keep you posted of how it goes.
What do you think of the rose gold trend? Is it here to stay? Is there another colour trend that you have heard of?
