Color Crush: Blush.

via Erica Tanov Tumblr

Have you noticed the shades of pink popping up everywhere lately?  So much so, that it’s been dubbed a hot new name?  Millennial pink.  Seriously, who made this a thing?  See here, here or type it in on Pinterest, Instagram or the google.  Do it.  I’ll wait.

K.  You’re back!  Yay.  Now, how do you feel?  A bit happier?  I thought maybe so.  I’m a big believer in using visual cues to influence your mood and this endless stream of pink-spiration floating around the ethers never fails to make me smile.

The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love…something we could all use a bit more of these days.  It is the ultimate color that embraces femininity…which is probably why I have shied away from it much of my adult life.

happiness can be bought…and only $99.

But, somehow since the birth of my pink-color-loving-daughter and the amount of cool-overload-inspiring-social-media-pinkstorm of images…I can’t get enough of it these days.

I like the wide range of pinks out there…soft and romantic, to playful and fun, all the way to edgy – there is a shade for every girl (and guy) needing this shot of happy in their life.  I’ve embraced it in my closet, upped it’s game in my beauty routine and even painted a room in it’s happy hue.  How are you embracing this color crush in your life?

I live life inspired by color + beauty and can’t wait to share more of my color crushes with you!
