More “Color Stories” at Sunny District:
Amidst all the hullabloo about the color of that blue-black or white-gold dress, I introduce a new feature on my blog called ‘Color Stories’! I’m sharing snapshots of my travels, tied together by color. Why this post is called ‘Candy’, you ask? Check out Ingrid Sundberg‘s post about the Color Thesaurus, that’s why! Hope you will enjoy browsing through my travel world, as I do when I revisit memories locked in my albums 🙂
