BREAK TIME| Colouring, it’s a beautiful thing.

IMG_3088A few months ago I was in the midst of one major reading slump.  I always read what I feel like reading and never force myself to read anything I’m not excited about or interested in, which has made reading slumps a rare occurrence.  But sometimes the mind just doesn’t want to focus on a story and needs a vacation.  Since books were not appealing at the time I was searching for something else to keep me entertained, and in an effort to keep myself from binge-watching Netflix, I ended up discovering colouring books for adults.  Wait, what?!  This blew me away and made me absolutely giddy.  I loved colouring books as a child, but with adulthood that somehow stopped being a thing to do.  Until now! The whole concept is brilliant, and when the mind needs to cool off for a little bit a good colouring book is all you need.

With some research I ended up purchasing Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden. It is a lovely book full of amazing designs that are beautifully done.


I would very much recommend this book, along with any other ones by Johanna Basford as her work is quite exceptional.  Just sit back, relax, and colour. 🙂

PS.  I have found it to be a great activity WHILE binge-watching Netflix because, who am I kidding?

  1. Aren’t they gorgeous? I’ve had that one in my shopping cart for ages, but I’ve bought so many I had to slow down. I never stopped coloring, really, and still mostly stick to the bigger, bolder children’s books. But it was such a delight to find ones geared for adults with all the fine detail.

    1. They are so unbelievably detailed. The Enchanted Forest and Lost Ocean look great as well, and they are hanging out in my shopping cart as well. And now there is a Harry Potter colouring book too…oh boy.
