  • Drabble: Colour Me Beautiful

    by Secretnarrative | 15th of January, 2014

    The vibrant silk kimono clashes with my Chanel red lips and nails, but I decide it doesn’t matter; certain shades of orange, like terracotta, are tonal, subtler than red. Sienna, baked clay, emits earthy, soothing warmth, and I consider trying a different lipstick. Orange,... More

    Joy because this simple kaleidoscope is my 250th download. And, believe it or not, I gave it the title 'Ode to Joy' about 3 years ago. So, I am either; 1) psychic or 2) just like everybody else and this name is a complete fluke and/or coincidence! Either way, I... More
