Pink



I love pink. I don't know how my obsession with pink started, but I swear I must be low-key Paris Hilton in 2006. Or Sharpay Evans from High School Musical. Anyway, I love pink and trust me - if there is anything that I like that has its version in pink, I will most likely buy it. So if you'd like to see a small part of all my favourite pink things, this is your post.









I'm pretty sure this idea is far from original and another blogger has done it in the past, so I won't claim it as my own, but I wanted to take a few pictures of things that I really like that are, well, pink! And I plan to do that with more colours! 

These are just a few of my favourite things that are pink. I have way more, of course! My favourite pink nail polish are Be Bright, Be Happy, Be You by Tanya Burr and Kiss on the Chic by OPI. They are such different tones. The first one is way brighter and the latter is soft, very subtle. I like wearing that one when I'm tan.

I have featured two fragances here. My favourite perfume is Nina by Nina Ricci, which is pink of course. I love the smell, it's so refreshing. I think I've been obsessed with this perfume ever since I was fifteen or something. It's not like I don't wear any other perfume, I do, but this is one of my favourites. Another fragance is this body mist Pure Daydream by Victoria's Secret that brings me back to Sheffield. Is it weird? It literally smells like the shop in Meadowhall!

Of course, I had to count rose gold as pink. It's another shade of pink, I'd say. My Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay is one of my favourite things. It was a farewell present from my best friend and I fell in love with it instantly. Its colours go from sweet and subtle to mysterious and sexy. You can create the most amazing looks with it. And of course, I had to add my rose gold watch Katrina from River Island, which I bought on ASOS on sale! I don't wear it often, but when I do it's a killer. It makes my outfit so much more sophisticated!

Bright pink must be one of my favourite shades. I think it's so vibrant and looks so good on me! (I'm very pale in winter, so bright colours such as bright pink or red look good on me) That's why I featured my Impassioned by MAC lipstick, my very first lipstick from that brand. I love it and now that I have a tan, it looks so cool! 
My water bottle from PINK by Victoria's Secret is also bright pink. It's so useful! Since it holds almost a litre of water, I make sure I drink the exact amount of drink I need a day (which is two and half of these, more or less!) 
My iPad is also pink! Bright pink, in this case. I bought the case on Amazon and it came with a stylus. If you're interested, you can get the case + screen protector + stylus for about 10€ which I believe is 7GBP more or less. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out. The quality is amazing and my iPad looks so cute with it. (PS. I have no idea why it says blogspot.de)

What's your favourite colour?


Pssst. I bought a DSLR yesterday (a Nikon D3200) with the money I saved up from working at the academy and Summer Camp and I was very excited to take pictures for the blog. I spent the whole afternoon playing around with it and reading posts and articles on how to take aesthetically pleasing pictures. I used to play around my dad's old camera, which was a SLR but with film and I know more or less my way around them but DSLRs seem to be a whole new world that I'm willing to explore. These pictures helped me practice so I hope you like them. I would really recommend the blog Thirteen Thoughts and her posts on photography for anyone struggling (like me) xo

  1. This is such a cute post. I hate pink when I was younger and I'm still not a super huge fan but I noticed I have a lot more pale pink in my wardrobe than before. Hot pink is still hard for me to pull off, only in accessories or if I'm going out (actually I have a hot pink overcoat, whoa).

    Love that ipad cover!
