Most of us strive to feel happy and fulfilled in our lives, however sometimes living in a city renowned for it's ominous grey weather, Gothic architecture and penchant for wearing black, it can be difficult to sustain a sunny disposition. 

Fortunately summer's nearly here, which means we can finally get outside and soak up that vitamin D we've lacking after a long after a long harsh winter. We can also start wearing yellow, because it's super popular this summer and according to a study by Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam it can make you feel positive and uplifted. 

I realise yellow isn't always the easiest colour to wear, particularly for those of us with fair hair and pale complexions, as it can make us look sickly and jaundice, however my solution is to counteract a washed out look by wearing a bright lipstick. (preferably red-it's my solution for everything!).

Cameron's Pharmacy sold Fuller's Earth, an ashen eyebrow definer in Stage makeup. Cameron's is gone, you can't get the Fuller's, and the only Stage is the one leaving town.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
