Alright. So my love affair with pink is a well known one. I am currently debating covering the walls of my lounge with a pink wallpaper. My only problem is so many of the things in the room are tinted with pink that as my mother says “The room would look like an explosion in a lolly factory”. I’m pretty sure that won’t put me off if I actually decide to do it…
Seriously, pink is really one of my favourite colours and in honor of breast cancer month, I will pontificate on all things pink (well – in some cases at least accented with pink…)
I had to include my gorgeous pink wall from Porter Paints called Priscilla. I never tire of it and I love it even more with this dose of multicolored magic from Madder & Rouge. The chair retails for $825
While we are talking about breast cancer month – it is best we talk about the Skinfood Breast Cream. In an effort to encourage us to include checking of breasts as part of our everyday routine, they have added their Breast Cream to their extensive (and very cost efficient) lineup. With its witty and simple packaging you would be hard pressed to not love that in your bathroom. It retails for a very reasonable $11.99 with $2 from every sale going to NZBCF. Moisturising that saves you AND the women of the world. Nice. Look out for the hot pink box.
My long running love of Marimekko shows no signs of abating. I am a creature of habit. But I have so many chairs in my house that the re-upholstering just doesn’t happen fast enough for me. So imagine my happiness when my Ercol chair I got off TradeMe finally needed to be recovered. I chose the Marimekko Fandango in Red and Fuchsia fabric. It is an upholstery weight 100% cotton – available from Bolt Of Cloth for $120PM. It is my only burst of colour in our all white bedroom at present. Sigh…
It is not often I find a pink sofa, and especially not a sofa with multi coloured buttons, and DEFINITELY not one at such a good price… Me and My Trend has the most fantastic Alfie Three Seater Sofa in pink for $1695. Seriously what is not to love about a feature sofa in such a delicious colour!
If you want to WEAR your happy pink, then these frames from DKNY are just the ticket. They are available from OPSM (0800 445 539) for $249. They would brighten up even one of my all black outfits…
Dusty pink and rose gold is a rather splendid combination, and MOR Modern Apothecary has some fabulous gift sets coming through ready to entice us for Christmas and any other occasion we can think of. Part of the Starry Nights gift collection, the Twinkle Twinkle Marshmallow Duo has the Hand & Body Wash and Milk – both in the 500ml size. It comes in a keepsake box and retails for $59.99
While we are doing all things cosmetic, The exceptionally talented Kelly Thompson has released a range of cosmetic purses. I can’t really call her ‘just’ an illustrator, as she is an entrepeneur, artist, designer, reporter, writer, blogger and one of the most stylist people I know. I love to see her at NZFW each year to see what she is wearing… the bags are a collaboration with Tender Love and Carry and you can go to her website to pre-order with arrival at the end of the month. They will retail from just AUSD$23.95 with a pouch and a utility box style in each colourway. Order now though as I imagine they will sell out quickly!
