As always happens, we have come to the end of this 30-day blog challenge, and I think we are to be congratulated for making it to the end, whether we published 31 blog posts or not. But this time around, I am particularly proud of myself for making it through an entire month of blogging.
The UBC was Everywhere & Sometimes Nowhere
I have spent the past three months wrapped up in the process of moving! I was looking for a place to move to, preparing to move, beginning to move, completing the move, and unpacking the move.
Then, came the process of getting to know my new home, assessing its needs and trying to meet them. So while I was choosing and writing the blog posts for this challenge, posting them each day during the challenge, reading your blog posts, leaving comments, and tweeting, I also was moving.
And not without difficulty. For one thing, I still don't have the Internet. I've been using a hotspot to get online and for quite a bit of that time, due to going past the limits, the entire experience was s l o w e d down.
But here I am, at the finish line! Whoo hoo!! :)
Did you run into any unusual difficulties this time around?
Fall Style 2020: Brought to You by the Letter C
And I know my good UBC friend, Martha DeMeo who blogs at The Martha Review, is still experiencing record-breaking stats, and maybe some of you are, too? But I am not.
Which I understand. Though the everyday fashionistas are still interested in knowing what each new season brings, there is a lot going on right now to distract them from doing anything about it, or even from paying close attention to it.
Have you felt that way about your own blog topic or focus?
I think I am going to play it by ear where January is concerned. I have a blog challenge coming up in December and we'll see how that goes.
Glad you other bloggers were here this month!
Happy Holidays!! See you when 2020 is finally, blessedly, behind us.

Today's post is the last in a week-long series.
Each day, I've been doing celebrity color analysis for women of color who have starred or had supporting roles in Hallmark Christmas movies. Today, we are looking at a series of movies - Christmas in Evergreen, Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa, and Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy - and two actresses, who have starred in both.
Hallmark's Christmas in Evergreen Series
I have fallen in love with the Christmas in Evergreen series, and am hopeful that there will be a brand new one for this upcoming Christmas season! If you get a chance to watch any or all of them, I recommend them.
Each takes place in a charming small town called - you guessed it - Evergreen. There's a local store and restaurant that has a magical snow globe. Town legend suggests that if you shake it, while making a wish, your wish will come true.
In real life, the Evergreen movies are actually filmed at the Burnaby Village Museum in Canada's British Columbia, according to Coastal Living magazine. The museum is designed to look like an early Canadian province complete with a general store, trolley, old-fashioned ice cream parlour, and more. In short, it's the perfect setting for a Hallmark Christmas movie about a charming small town. - Refinery29.com
Holly Robinson Peete and Rukiya Bernard are our women of color actress choices for today, and they have both starred in all three of the Christmas in Evergreen movies.
And what matters most to me is that, rather than just being sidekicks or best friends, they have each been given their own romantic storylines! Keep it going, Hallmark. You're on the right track.
Both actresses have the same color analysis type, too. They both belong to the Deep color home. But let's see if they both get the same personalized palette colors...
The Personalized Color Palettes
When I do personalized color palettes for clients, I offer ten or more of their very best colors. The ones that make them shine brightest.
And though, with color analysis, two people may have the same color home, their personalized palettes will often be different.
Here are the personalized palette colors I chose for Holly Robinson Peete and Rukiya Bernard.
Surprise! I decided to only choose a Christmas red and green this time and they can both wear the same ones.
If I gave them a red and green capsules, then the reds and greens would begin to differ. But these two could make the cut in both color palettes.
What do you think? Can you imagine them wearing those colors and looking wonderful?
See you next time!
This week, here at Life in Color, I am continuing to do celebrity color analysis for women of color who have had roles in Hallmark Christmas movies. Today, our movie is A Christmas to Remember.
Hallmark's A Homecoming for the Holidays
In the movie, A Christmas to Remember, the lead character is a woman who starts in a cooking show and is very demanding with her staff.
She is easily thrown by problems that occur, and is stressed out, so her manager, Paula, suggests she get away for Christmas, to Paula's cabin a few hours away. On the drive from the airport, in her rental car, she veers off the road and hits her head, losing her memory.
It is one of my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies, and I highly recommend it, if you get the chance to see it during the upcoming Christmas season. It's charming and sweet and endearing!
The two black actresses who were in this movie are Brenda Crichlow and LaTonya Williams. I hope to feature LaTonya in a future post, but this time will focus on Brenda.
Celebrity Color Analysis
Brenda has just appeared in a new Christmas movie this season, called Chateau Christmas. I won't be surprised to see her in other movies in the coming weeks, as well.
The Personalized Color Palette
Though she is Warm dominant, Brenda's personalized color palette doesn't have the typical Warm colors I would have expected as her absolute best. But if I widened it to include her ten best colors, which is what I do with clients, they would be.
What do you think? Can you imagine her wearing those colors?
See you next time!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
