I'm somewhat obsessed with this whole "Pantone Color of the Year" ordeal that happens annually in the rainbow of the world.
I'm not sure how they can pick just one, though. I mean, when I was younger my favorite color was constantly changing. And by constantly I mean changed more often than did my current middle school crush (and that's quite often because I still have my diary that contains a set of initials in the top corner of each page pertaining to what 12 year old boy I liked that specific day, and let me just say it was a new set of initials with each turn of the page). Purple was always a front runner back in the day. I then grew to become a bit more sophisticated and changed it to "periwinkle" because I needed to be different than the rest of them.
Now that I'm an adult I don't really have an all-time favorite color. It changes for each category.
For instance my wine: I prefer that white...and sweet if you'd like to buy me a bottle.
My beers: They'd obviously be Blue...Moon. See what I did there?
Clothing: I don't stray too far away from neutrals very often.
Christmas Lights: White. Absolutely not blue.
Jewelry: If it's expensive...silver, if it's from Forever 21...who cares it'll be green tomorrow.
Skies: Grey...and rainy if I feel like snuggling but blue any other day.
But enough Kindergarten games and back to that Pantone thing I was discussing earlier. I love it. It's like the Oscars for your crayon box. Is there really any better award than being THEE color of the year? I mean that's a pretty big feat. There are seventeen thousand colors in the world (I know because I spent seventeen thousand hours going through them while designing my next blog layout) so the fact that just one gets to be the winner for a whole year? Huge.
Okay obviously I'm exaggerating this a bit but it all stems from how insanely bored I am while currently watching these Oscars. I relate this to the fact that I didn't see a single movie nominated OR the fact that my apartment is currently out of wine. I'm going to go with the latter on this one. But anyway, last year I did a post on the 2012 Color of The Year so I figured I needed to continue on with the trend and do one for this year as well.
So let me take you on a little journey through Oz with the winner of 2013:
