THE READ LIST: hashtag bloomtown

HASHTAG, YOU'RE IT: Hipster indie fashion house, Modcloth wants to know your #FASHIONTRUTH.

Stop calling young people the future; in reality they are the present. And, this wise young pretty thing proves it. Did ya know that 4 out of 5 Millennials prefer to buy organic fruit and vegetables over Gucci. So, how about designer produce?

365 DAYS OF WINE + ROSES: Marsala may be Pantone's "COLOR OF THE YEAR" but will this constant #colorbuzz give you a hangover?  Children's book author and illustrator, Ingrid Sandberg shares her Color Thesaurus in an info-graphic sure to delight adults of all ages.

BLOOMTOWN: Just who decides which flowers make this list? We think the most beautiful blooms are the ones spotted sprouting up from cracks and crevices. Like this one. Speaking of blooms, flowers are the inspiration of this designer's dress collection and one guy explains why roses are the world's most famous flower.

Regardless of fame or fortune, we're wishing all our Rosebuds a most glorious week-day!

I dig the color thesaurus--a million ways to say white and more. I'm so ready for spring, Bella. I really love all the goodies inside this post. It's like taking a walk with you. This is truly the good stuff.

Part of my job is children and youth policies and some of the key words is to see Young people as present and of course as Resources.

Absolutely, so many, many young people are definitely ' agents for positive change', as the huff post piece says. I am inspired every day by the young voices clamouring for change. And yes, beauty blooms everywhere.
Great post Bella. I always love the fact that your blog is such a celebratory place to visit, (and thank you so much for the mention and link.)
