Happy Friday, friends! Here’s hoping you had a stellar week, and are looking forward to a nice weekend. Any plans? Often weekends are the busiest part of our week, or at least it seems that way. It’s like we try to pack in 5-7 days worth of activities, events, and errands in those two sweet, sweet days off. But it’s ok! Because usually (not always, of course) we can fill the weekends on our own terms, doing what we want to do – perhaps with a few “have to do” items thrown in there as well.
But what do you do when your weekend plans cause you more stress, more exhaustion, and give you those “Is it Sunday night ALREADY?!?” kind of feels? Well, if you’re like a lot of people these days, you can try to beat some of that stress through colouring.
Now, the colouring trend isn’t new, of course, and there’s a good chance that many of our readers are already on board with colouring for relaxation. And if you’re into it, and find it can help with stress, with focus, and with calming, then that’s great! If that is the case for you, you probably already know that you can find colouring books on practically every theme you can think of. Gardens, birds and other animals; mandalas and tattoos; outer space-themed books and holiday-themed ones too. For the sassiest among us, there are even several different swear word colouring books. Who knew? Well, if you like to colour, you probably did!
If you’re an avid reader of this blog, there is also a good chance that you are an avid follower of fashion, beauty, and hair – because, let’s be honest, we talk a lot about these things. And you also might know – although we kind of want to be the ones to surprise you with it – that you can also find fashion- and hair-themed colouring books. It’s true! Amazon.ca has an entire department on their website dedicated to Fashion Colouring Books for Grown-Ups that you can scroll through to find the books of your dreams.
Here are some of the highlights:

Colouring book authors Ming-Ju Sun and Tom Tierney have several vintage fashion related books, so if you are a fan of fashion and beauty from The Jazz Age, the 1950s, the Victorian or even the Medieval eras, definitely seek out their colouring books!
Finally, we certainly don’t want to neglect the beauty and especially the hair-themed colouring books, so have a look at both the Beauty Salon Coloring Book: Hair, Makeup, and Nails and (our absolute favourite) I Love My Hair: A Coloring Book for Braids, Coils, and Doodle Dos.
Whether you like to colour or not, we hope this has inspired you to take some time for yourself this weekend. Whatever you like to do to unwind, relax, and de-stress, we hope you get to do it!
Enjoy the weekend, friends. See you back here Tuesday!
