ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! PANTONE HAS SPOKEN!!! THE COLOUR OF THE YEAR IS OFFICIALLY "RADIANT ORCHID"!!!!
Ummmm....is it just me or who in the f**k is this entity called "Pantone"? Why do they get to tell us which colour is trendy? I don't really get it. However, I am not above pretending that I am VERY on trend. This makeup look and clubbing outfit is PERHAPS from April 2013 (as we all know that I never get around to posting anything that I take pictures of) but let us pretend, if only for a moment, that I am very "with it" and "hip" and that I just did this recently in the spirit of bowing down to the colour and trend gods. If orchid tones are trendy, then I am fine with it as they are flattering on me and complement my eye colour. BUT WHAT IS ONE TO DO IF THIS COLOUR DOES NOT LOOK GOOD ON THEM??? THE HORROR.

Do ignore my awkward hair length; I have been growing out my old short haircut for quite some time now. I either like my hair freshly cut in a short style or really long so the in-between period rather sucks. It is a fair bit longer now. Also, I had some of those fusion i-tip extensions in. They look pretty cool and last for quite awhile.

What do you think of this "colour of the year" business? Can someone explain this "Pantone" thing to me?
