Colours & Emotion For August 2015

Colours & Emotion
  1. The colour yellow is generally a cheerful and warm colour which can improve our mood at any time. But strangely, that’s not always true! While on the surface level, we consider yellow to be a cheerful colour, on a deeper psychological level for some people, this colour is not all about happiness. It is known to make some people lose their temper sooner and even create anger and frustration. In fact, it’s also believed to make certain kids irritable because of which they cry a lot when in a yellow room.

  2. Have you been undergoing a lot of stress of late? Is home sweet home the only place you get some peace? Well, our advice would be to add the colour green in a larger proportion to your house. It is known to be one of the most restful colours to the eye and is perfect for almost any room of the house, ranging from the kitchen to the living room. The colour is known to have a calming effect on the nerves and helps in relieving stress by making you feel relaxed. A special point for couples here, it’s also known to boost fertility.

The constant pressure of keeping our wardrobes up to date can really be tormenting at times. The good thing, however, is that fashion also comes with its easy and convenient parts. One of them being statement pieces; yes, there are some items which will never go out of fashion and you can wear them forever! So, we list out five items that you need to own. Firstly, it is mandatory for you to have snug fit jeans in the coolest shade of blue, trust us, this will save many a day. Next on list, a little black dress – it may be overdone but there is a reason it is, and you should get one right now. Another absolute must is a pencil skirt, preferably in black. It works for both the boardroom meeting and hitting the club, we can’t be asking for more. A gorgeous sari is also a must, we should all be proud of our heritage and nothing can be better than a sari for showing off our heritage as well as exuding oomph - what say, ladies? Last on the list are high heels, we know flats are comfortable but heels make you feel confident, go stand tall and pretty!

Colours & Gems For August 2015

Colours & Gems
  1. Gemstones have been used for the purpose of decoration since time immemorial and every pretty gemstone that you can think of has been moulded into accessorizing items. The rage towards richly coloured gemstones like ruby and emerald are even greater when it comes to pieces of jewellery. So, today we let you in on one of the prettiest and rarest gemstone found, the Red Beryl Emerald. This lovely densely coloured red stone is found only in very few places like Mexico and the Mountains of Utah. It can crystallize only under low pressure and high temperature along fractures or cavities and porous areas of volcanic magma. The best part, however, is that only a very few cut specimens exist and if you can manage to find one for yourself, we would be awestruck!

  2. Ever wondered what happened to the rarest mineral on earth? Well, it became one of the rarest gemstones in the world. Let us introduce you to Painite, one of the rarest gemstone on earth. This mineral was first found in Myanmar. Initially, only a few small painite crystals were known to exist. It was only until 2005 that more painite was unearthed in Myanmar. If chic and elegant were stones, they would be painite! It generally comes in hues of blackish brown; all you lovely ladies out there just have to own one!

Colours & Nature For August 2015

Colours & Nature
  1. Nature offers us a spectrum of colours we often can’t imagine even in our most vivid dreams. It splashes its brilliant hues on earth’s canvas, and one such place is Lake Natron in Tanzania, close to the Kenyan border. The lake is shallow; however evaporation has left behind natron (sodium carbonate decahydrate) and trona (sodium sesquicarbonate dihydrate) owing to its brilliant shades of pink. This natural phenomenon occurs as the salinity levels increase and the salt-loving microorganisms thrive. The red photosynthesizing pigment in the bacteria produces the deep reds of the lake and the orange colours of the shallow parts of the lake. The alkali salt crust on the surface of the lake is also often coloured red or pink by the microorganisms.

  2. Nature has its own way of flaunting its imagination. Every time we feel we’ve seen it all, it challenges us and shows us something that sweeps us off the ground. Be it rainbows, colourful planets, flora and fauna, there always a little surprise waiting for you. The bioluminescent waves of Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives are one such surprise. A concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton resides on the water, delighting us with their shimmer. It looks like the ocean waves are studded with diamonds. Different species of phytoplankton are known to bioluminesce, the chemical energy is turned into light, illuminating the waves.
