Summer Nostalgia: Colouring In

Part two in my series of summer nostalgia!

So, “adult” colouring in books are all the rage right now. AND IT’S ABOUT TIME. I remember a few years ago when I was just like, I like colouring in, I want to do some because it’s nice and relaxing, why can’t I find anything that isn’t aimed at five year olds? If only I’d jumped on it then… but anyway, recently I treated myself to The Mindfulness Colouring Book by Emma Farrarons.

And over the last few weeks have gradually been experimenting with the different patterns and styles.

And honestly?

Some of my attempts!

It’s wonderful! I love being able to colour in; it takes your mind off everything, gives you something to focus on that isn’t taxing, but still requires concentration. Plus, this is something that you can outside, on the move, in bed – anywhere you want. All you need is one of the many available colouring books and some coloured pencils/felt tips. Easy. Nothing like some colouring in to take you back to being a kid…

Has anyone else rediscovered colouring in recently?
