Rainbow colours equal happiness

I love vibrant colours and it’s certainly no breaking news that they work wonders for adding a little sunshine to a person’s day. Bright lipsticks, colourful clothing, and fresh rainbow coloured food all evoke a cheery vibe and can be a great antidote when you’re feeling a bit less chirpy than your norm.

Over on Khoollect this week we’ve been exploring a kaleidoscope of colours and celebrating everything rainbow themed. I’ve put together a taste of some delightfully colourful features that I think you’ll enjoy exploring below, but before you do – get yourself in the draw to WIN the tantalisingly sweet new cookbook The Marshmallowist by Oonagh Simms.

First up, meet Oonagh Simms herself. This creative foodie and master of the sweet treat shares the secrets behind her latest marshmallow-laden food endeavour. Once you’ve got the lowdown on Oonagh, try her indulgent recipe for Mookies (think cookies with lots of marshmallows, yum!).

Renowned London meringue-makers the Meringue Girls also dish the dirt on what it’s like making rainbow-coloured ‘unicorn poo’ for a living. Go behind the scenes of a day in their life…

Professional crafter and colour devotee Brittany Watson Jepson shares her story on how she got her popular blog The House that Lars Built and #crafttherainbow project off the ground.
