Ever wonder which orange was named first? The fruit or the color? 🍊 The fruit was named first. It dates back to 1300s as first recorded in China. The color wasn’t even named until somewhere in the 1500s. 200 years later! Before then it was referred to as yellowish red.
Last night, as I was coming home in an Uber Pool, I found myself laughing. Behind me sat two friends, a man and a woman in their thirties. They were talking about their night and the girl says, “I'm happy we went. It was honestly a cultural experience. So interesting to watch twenty somethings interact with one another.” Bars are exhibits. Last night I discovered that as a twenty something year old, I am on display.
When socks matches skirt and skirt matches snack and snack matches nails and nails matches balloon, well, that makes me smile. Also, every time the season is changing I feel an urge to wear different colors, do you ever get that? I wish Spring would hurry up already so I can start wearing my ice cream colored coats 🍧 #whptwinning
All the greens
Such luscious tiles! Lovely treat enjoying a swim at the restored Woodcock St Victorian baths in Birmingham. Used to regularly walk past on the way to meetings & finally had a dip. It’s got those poolside changing rooms and everything!
Happy Sunday ✨ I’ve had a crazy productive weekend - have decorated my little boy’s room and have made him a duvet cover and some artwork for his room (I use this term loosely if you’ve seen my stories 😆) I’ve also spray painted a frame and a mirror (thank you @makeitrustoleum workshop for the goody bag 😂) and I squeezed in brunch and a bit of shopping. Yay! 🙌🏻☀️ what have you all been up to? (Oh and, is it me or do weaves grow so quickly?! 😍) #lottieandalbert
I have decided my new favourite thing is starting a city break with a night at the airport ✈️
Before our early morning flight to Alicante last week we booked into @novotelhotels at Stansted airport, meaning we head an extra two hours of sleep 👌
Home from a really lovely few days away from visiting family and the Benefit cosmetics event in Leicester ❤ so happy to be reunited with my Frank and I'm already looking forward to getting into bed later with my book 😂👵🏼 Anyways, I need some help- What are you all watching on Netflix right now? We need something new to watch and we're thinking of a takeaway and Netflix evening so any recommendations would be most appreciated ☺️☺️ I hope you all had a lovely weekend?
Hi friends, we’re new here. Have you ever had an amazing beach day that you wanted to hold onto forever? We started Evergreen Summer in hopes that we could do just that. We’re going to be selling cards, art prints, and other rad stuff super soon. Until then, we’ll be sharing pics of beaches we love and our work in progress. Follow along if you need a bit more sunshine in your feed. Click the link in our bio to get an update when we’re live. Cheers! #wearethemakers#beachbums#ihavethisthingwithcolor#handmade#beachart#thatsdarling#handsandhustle
THE NEW BEGINNINGS // It’s official. Boredom has set in and the borders are gonners. The last week has been one of realisation for me and I’m reigniting all that is EJP. I’ve figured that while I’m a creative, I’ve been concentrating on spreading the word on others and in doing so, I’ve lost a little bit of my own spark. It’s time to bring it back to the gal that spent her nights sketching. I always want to be pushing boundaries and bringing creativity to all aspects of my life and actually, just taking photos (as pretty as they are) isn’t quite cutting it. So, welcome to EJP 2.0 where my own illustration meets the work of others and every little post is a creative project - whether that be drawing, styling, photographing, interpreting a brief in my own way. Don’t worry, there will still be London lifestyle too. I’m not good at that whole niche thang. And what a way to start off, right? My own personalised denim from @daisyemerson. You can still catch her at @topshop Oxford Circus until Wednesday where she’ll customise your denim for free with every purchase.
Happy Sunday Funday! 🎉 ICYMI: There are seconds of our pizza pins in the shop! There’s only 3 available at 40% off. They have very minor blemishes (I’m a perfectionist) that are barely noticeable and don’t effect overall quality! 🙃 Plus saving money on the pin means more money for the pizza parties you’ll wear them to 😉💖
〰 Mountainous 〰 Organic cotton coat. .

Votes! I’m thinking of making shimmer embellished prints of this original, won’t be exactly the same, but that way she can have a bit of sparkle, still ✨✨✨ what do you think? Also, if you’d like the original, feel free to DM me @hollyfae_art or you can find her in my Etsy shop! 💖

sometimes I feel like I’m about to POP but most days I don’t feel that large and in charge..until I look at these pictures 😳🙀
Jackson Cole is the size of a papaya (and so are my cankles 😳) and we’ll find out his estimated weight at our ultrasound this week. And now that there’s exactly a month until our due date I feel like the countdown is officially on. ⏰
🌷Happy Sunday, gorgeous! Winding down this week after enormous feedback for the #insanelyinspiredinstagram and Instagram for Artists course. +
This year, I will be teaching over 200 new students how to grow on Instagram using completely organic strategies to get their beautiful work into more hands and hearts. Enrollment is officially closing tonight at midnight EST. And then I’m off to closed doors in our private community online. I’m very hands on in the group and I’ve got a couple of nice surprises in store this year as well. Last call. And last post on this too 😅🙌🏽 To sign up, visit: www.passioncolorjoy.com
