Lately I've been hearing a lot about the benefits of coloring. Aside from it being a creative outlet, experts say it can actually help you to distress. Not that my life is exactly full of stressors, but I could definitely use some R&R now and then, and the fashion inspired Bouffants & Broken Hearts Coloring Book by Kendra Dandy was too cute to pass up!
Kendra Dandy is a popular graphic artist and fashion designer, whose prints you may recognize from places like Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters.
Dandy's 75 page book has a variety of pop art patterns like mini hot dogs, funky flamingos, and 60s-inspired bouffants. The book is fun because it has something for every mood!
I loved the lipsticks and bouffant pages for when I was feeling creative and had fun putting together stylish color combos. Patterns like the exotic birds were great for when I just wanted to chill out and do something carefree.
My next masterpiece :p
Overall, it's a fun way to kick back and check out of reality for a bit. And definitely a fun gift idea for the fashion lover on your list!
Have you tried coloring to relax? Does the Bouffants & Broken Hearts Coloring Book make you wanna try it?
