I Get the Coloring Book Hype

Coloring books are so cool these days! I'm not even being sarcastic, I genuinely love them. I spent months and months picking up various coloring books, and ultimately not purchasing them. I received two for Christmas, and now I'm hooked. I wasn't sure how I would feel about using a coloring book in my spare time as someone who paints and illustrates anyway, but it's a lot of fun, and a great way to unwind in the evening. I don't worry too much about perfection, so there's no pressure, and there's something comforting about picking up an old childhood hobby. 

I recently added a couple Vera Bradley books to my collection (though I'm honestly gifting one to my mom), and they're seriously stunning. This might turn into my permanent evening hobby. I'm not sure where the Christmas gifts were from, but you can find the Vera Bradley books here and here

Happy coloring!


  1. Oh I'd love to try the coloring book thing. Hahah I've always seen it as a way of practicing your patience? Lol. Anyways, I bet the result is gorgeous with all the colors and the illustration and perhaps the relaxing feeling of doing it is even better? Need to try one soon! Xx


    1. It's everything you mentioned Mia, you should try it out!

  2. I love adult colouring books although it takes me so long just to finish one page because I'm such a perfectionist haha!

  4. I need to get on board. I'm really into watercolors right now and I think I would really enjoy adult coloring books.
