I’m not certain if scientists ever attempted to examine the rise in serotonin levels when you try on a new – and flattering! – pair of pants, or shoes, or a top. But I am certain that acquiring well-priced, awesome-fitting items of clothing triggers a highly positive effect. A little chain reaction of pure bliss. And if someone dares to think that I’m basing my claims to joy on a slim control group of made up of my lonesome self – ha, I say to you! I assure you legions of friends would be happy to aid in my science fair project, acting as proof.
After this winter of utter discontent, a winter so cold and rough that it refused to relinquish its grip of dirty, mountainous snow well after spring was announced, I want to scream if I hear talk of neutrals. No, no more sedate and staid blacks and navys and grays! I want COLOR! I NEED color (and larger CAPS). I think color might be the light at the end of this climatic tunnel. And the color I’ve been thinking this week is bright, saturated, cobalt blue.
Don't miss your happier boost!
