I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Luckily Living in Red!


I’m in a great mood today. It’s fucking Friday, y’all! Woot! And while getting dressed this morning (sorry no pics) I found myself stepping out of my usual routine and opting for splashes of the luckiest color: RED! I’m wearing my red-framed glasses, black t-shirt with a huge red glass heart necklace (the size of your fist), dark blue jeans and some red slip-on Keens I just got. LOVE IT! I just feel more sassy in red! Also, I have red hair!

To celebrate this lovely day and the color Red, I did a bit of web diving and wanted to share some things that come up with this lovely and luscious colour.

Of course you’ve got the Cincinatti Reds, the Boston Red Sox and all of that. Also, there’s Red Robin, Red Lobster, etc. Don’t forget the Red Cross. But what else?

Nature of Red: A stimulant, red is the hottest of the warm colors. Studies show that red can have a physical effect, increasing the rate of respiration and raising blood pressure.

This link goes into meanings, pairings, uses and so much more, all to do with RED:

Here’s another called, “All About The Color Red:

And for my needling pals, there’s Red Heart yarns! (I could not find any actual Red colored yarn, weird!)

If you’re into the gothic scene, or just love the clothing, check out Heavy Red :

The ever tasty & popular Red Vines!

The wikipedia page for Red:

Then there’s the whole Red campaign where your purchases benefit those with AIDS in Africa:

Here’s a link about Red hair and it’s various myths, etc:

And just some images I liked:

Enjoy your day and your weekend and your life. See what colors pop out at you and let me know all about it!

It’s the simplest of things that can sweep us off our feet.

    And a happy top of the morning to you too!
    What about red music? What song or type of music would you associate with the color red?
