Passionately Purple




I heart PURPLE! I loved all these purple photos and couldn't help but share! I definitely take it overboard with this color...my room at home is basically 100% purple, my bedding in college is purple, my high school colors were purple, my life planner is purple, and I own entirely too many purple articles of clothing. Whatever, the color makes me happy! :)
In the spirit of this post, I looked up what purple colors imply. According to this website, purple is the color of royalty and spirituality. It can create peace of mind and is linked with "creativity, wisdom, dignity, independence, passion, motivation, nobility, mystery, power, respect, active dreaming, sophistication, and adventure." "Personality traits of purple: inspirational leaders, kindly, just, self-sacrificing, humanitarian, visionary, creative, and strong mentally." Interesting! I may just have to make a post for every color so we can learn what they all mean!
