The Pantone Colours of the Year are Rose Quartz and Serenity – a warm rose tone and a cool tranquil blue. This means that we are now seeing a lot of pastel/candy colours cropping up everywhere from homeware to fashion and I for one am loving it. I thought that with Easter just around the corner I’d share a few sweet treats that have been catching my eye…
The furniture in our house is dark wood, so I like to lighten things up where ever I can. I also like to make sure things are cosy, so cushions and throws (this one is my current favourite) are tucked around the place. Our almost teenager has discovered the joys of the snuggly blankets as well so I try to make sure there are enough to go around.

Of course there is candy for your body as well – whether it goes in your mouth or on your skin, there are lots of super sweet treats out there. My favourite kind of sweet treats are bath bombs – as you know I’m a big fan of sweet candy and fruity fragrances so all kinds of delicious smelling body things are right up my alley.

So we all know that my wardrobe is a lot of black on black, right? Well I am a bit partial to creams and pastel greys to help break that up, and there are a lot of other candy colours out there at the moment (especially with it being spring in the Northern Hemisphere!). I’m really liking the rose quartz as an accessory because it’s so easy to wear. I have a really great rose quartz pendant that I need to get a new chain for that will be a perfect fit for this pastel palette.
