Happy New Year – welcome to 2014! So word on the street is that Emerald Green is sooooo last year (sob, I miss it already) and 2014 is all about the 18-3224 TCX- that’s Radiant Orchid to you and me.

So my Radiant Orchid colour search was a bit of a fail – I guess the trend hasn’t caught on just yet! Will you be getting ahead of the crowd and embracing the Orchid this year?
