Tickled Pink

April 15, 2012

There’s nothing quite like a shock of colour to get you back in the rhythm. I used to hate hot pink as a kid, but now I clearly can’t get enough!

And I’m back! It was so fantastic switching off for a couple of days, but it’s still good returning to the real world.

Upon stumbling in the door this afternoon all sleepy-eyed and alarmed by the looks of my BlackBerry inbox, some pink shock-factor was a good start in getting back into the rhythm of readings, assignments, study…

  1. Leather shorts by This is Genevieve that are the sweetest sporty fit and perfect with every t-shirt I own
  2. Leopard printed ‘Serena’ Mavi Jeans are impossibly comfortable and unexpected (I never thought I’d appreciate pink leopard print)
  3. O&M Original Queenie hairspray is one of my favourites for dance and general use – it’s glossy and doesn’t weigh down my hair at all
  4. MAC ‘Florida’ Cremeblend blush should be called Instant Rosy Cheeks (and makes me think of a beautiful post of Hannah’s from a while ago)
  5. Face of Australia ‘Malibu Barbie’ Lipstick is a good one when you’re wearing black or grey – it looks particularly striking with grey marle
  6. Hello Kitty for Priceline ‘Eva Pink’ nail polish is one of my longest-staying nail polishes.
  7. MICHAEL Michael Kors sweater from My Wardrobe would be the best thing to throw on on rainy days… imagine the pump-up out of this colour!

What are your thoughts on hot pink? Prefer blue or gold? I used to hate it as a kid, and now can’t get enough!

P.S. thanks for all your sweet feedback on my collaboration with Factorie!! I’m so glad you like the shots.
