February Letter from the Editor

Revealing our February word and color of the month

February Letter from the Editor

How is it a new month already? On one hand, January seemed like it lasted about 84 days. But on the other hand, I can’t believe it’s February already!

But before we dive into February, let’s take a quick look back at what you loved in January…

What You Loved in January

January… Our theme of the month was “back to basics” and our color of the month was Pantone’s living coral.

Did you enjoy the back to basics focus? I know I sure did! Well, more aptly put, I needed that focus. I caught up on so many things, checked so many things off my list, and so on and so forth. I’m feeling better prepared and equipped to make 2019 the best year yet!

February Word of the Month

From last month’s back to basics we are pivoting to propel ourselves forward powerfully! Get excited with me, friends!

This month is all about living boldly!

Our word for February is bold.

And I can’t wait for us together to delve into the notion of living boldly in all areas of life! From professionally to personally to sartorially — we are going to live without reservations!

In fact, we are even going to have a quote of the month. Though this quote doesn’t actually have the word “bold” in it, it nevertheless encapsulates the idea of living boldly so well. It’s one of my all-time favorite quotes in fact.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.”

― Henry David Thoreau

Here’s another bold thought to consider:

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Let’s cast aside all fears and doubts and insecurities as we embrace the idea of living bold powerful lives that make an impact.

Won’t you join me in this endeavor?

February Color of the Month

As for our color of the month, it’s a bold pick as well… Though pink isn’t the most novel color selection for February, we of course picked the boldest version of the hue.

This month, our color of the month is hot pink!

Now, in the past, we’ve written a lot about the softer shade of pink. Namely, blush pink — also referred to as millennial pink. Check out those color guides:
