My morning comes around as the sunrise slowly chases the moon away unveiling soft golden hues sprinkled with dashes of warm rose and orange. The flowers outside my window illuminate and burst back into life and color. The day begins in shades of pink…
My day’s preparation begins with adding pink touches to my makeup. There is such a beautiful balance between pairing shades of pink together for a look. The soft hues add a delicate glow to the skin and highlight your features without distorting. Pink has such a powerful ability to be refined yet playful. My favorite way to add pink in my beauty routine is through blushes, lipsticks, and nail polishes!
A morning is never quite complete without a warm cup of coffee or tea; the soft aroma cradling the room inviting you to sit and enjoy its presence and taste. I love a blend between coffee and milk while admiring the spring blossoms outside.
Taking a moment out of your day to appreciate on the beauty that surrounds you is truly a wonderful experience. While taking a stroll to my favorite cupcake cafe I passed a field of wildflowers with bustling bees at work. The bursts of deep pink framed by yellow were breathtaking.
As once said, “Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first,” is absolutely true. The simple pleasures in life are often overlooked. The joy a simple dessert brings or colors such as pink are unparalleled to any other. Enjoy a cup of tea and pastry with me!
As the day unwinds and the moon slowly creeps towards the sun, the time comes to get comfortable once again. Wrap yourself in shades of pink and prepare for another day filled with vibrancy, color, and happiness.
Julep recently reached out to asking me to participate in a color inspiration contest they are holding and I was absolutely thrilled to accept! I created “A Pretty Day in Pink” to represent how influential and present the color is in my life and what it means to me. At face value, it is simply a color enjoyed by many, but it goes beyond this superficial approach. Pink embodies a lifestyle, a way of being, and a future. Pink represents the shirt you wore taking your first steps as a child, your first day of school, your first dance, your first kiss, your first nail polish. It is the color that surrounds us via the flowers that play such an important role in nature and in the morning sun that awakens the earth. My post represents the timeless nature of pink and to carry forward I would design a nail polish in a warm mid-tone shade. It would have a classic creme finish and hints of rose blended with the coolness of a shade similar to that of ballet shoes. I would name the polish “Anya.” The name represents grace, love, and adventure which truly expresses what the color pink means to me. This shade would be universally flattering on all skin tones and nail shapes.
