The Color:

Lilac is a color that is a pale shade of violet. It might also be described as light purple.

The Meaning and Symbolism:

The story of lilac, according to Greek mythology, begins with a beautiful nymph named Syringa (lilac’s botanical name). Captivated by her beauty, Pan, the god of the forests and fields, chased Syringa through the forest. Frightened by Pan’s affections, Syringa escaped him by turning herself into an aromatic bush – the flower we now refer to as lilac.

The 8th wedding anniversary flower and the state flower of New Hampshire (symbolizing the hardy character of the Granite State’s citizens), lilacs are frequently considered a harbinger of spring, with the time of their bloom signaling whether spring will be early or late. In the language of flowers, purple lilacs symbolize the first emotions of love, while white lilacs represent youthful innocence.

Christmas Message:

Christmas for me is an opportunity for everyone to bring out the child in us. A child who is eager to open a gift and genuinely smile to whatever the box contains. A child who stare innocently beside the christmas tree and enjoys how the light flickers. A child, who looks at other kids as their true friends and share their happiness without expecting anything in return. I hope we all have a heart of a child this Christmas, and all the days of year.This is the only way we could avoid conflict and can genuinely say, Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Personal Style Guide:

I chose a more vintage look this Christmas to go back to the days where fashion and style looks more sophisticated and regal. This is where I can celebrate my mom or Grandma’s era and thank them for the generation they have handed down on me.

A Classic Black and White Dress may be the best way to express yourself in any way. Consider it as a blank canvass where you mix other bright colors of your choice. You can have a black and white get up and shoot in some colorful accent like belts, brooche and shawl or scarf.

The White Color:

White is the color of purity. Brides wear white in many countries, because white symbolizes a virgin. White means kindness. In some cultures white is worn at funerals. White is Monday’s color. White daisies are a symbol of loyal love.

Strictly speaking, white is not a color, but the manifestation of the presence of all color – the complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion. In many cultures it represents openness and truth. White has a cold quality. It can provide clarity as its energy is complete.

White has purification vibrations and can be used to clear blocks from your path.

It holds the potential to move toward every other color and this makes it a good choice for new beginnings, and development in any direction.

Put some white in your life to:

-Aids mental clarity
-Encourages us to clear clutter or obstacles
-Evokes purification of thoughts or actions
-Enables fresh beginnings
