Hopelessly Yellow is an Instagram and website duo that promotes mental health and spreads positivity through writing, music, and art. Founded in 2020, Hopelessly Yellow revolves around the little things: the yellow things. The sea of maize and blue spirit on a Saturday morning, the cotton-candied Ann Arbor skies, or laughing so hard that your stomach hurts. We agree that yellow is a state of mind, and we want to share that idea. Hopelessly Yellow exists to cover anything and everything, good and bad: it is a lifestyle. In a world with so much hopelessness, we want to highlight the Hopelessly Yellow times - the small moments that make you really excited and grateful to be alive.
