Wow, January flew by. February is actually one of my favorite months. There’s something about the unusualness of the short month that I really, truly just love. And what’s better than loving a month that’s all about love?
And February is absolutely a PINK month.
In the words of the precocious Eloise… Think pink, a better way of life.
What pink things are you loving during February?
So… I guess it’s February.
Not going to lie, this is my favorite month. Hello, PINK is essentially the color of the month. And I love every single minute of it. I’m a few days late on this, but it’s okay since we get an EXTRA day!!!
Here are my favorite pink things right now:
I love canvas totes because we have a “bag tax” in Washington, DC. Even though it’s only five cents per bag, I hate spending five cents on a stupid bag… so I pay $20 for a cute canvas bag. Because that makes total sense……… haha.
I can’t go more than a couple of days without using this. It has totally changed my skin.
I don’t have these earrings, but I really wish that I did…. I wish they would magically appear in my jewelry box…. Making the wish, right now!
This is so perfect for traveling! I always need little bags for my trinkets. This looks like the perfect size (and clearly the perfect color).
Nails deserve to celebrate too!!!
a better way of life.
Oh boy! I love pink. There are so so so many things that should be pink. Sheets, cupcakes, clothes, shoes, nail polish, headbands, pencils…..
Things that should never be pink: Eyes.
Yep, after weeks of babysitting for tons of kids for many many many hours at a time, I finally caught the second most dreaded ailment from children. Pink eye. (The first being lice and the third being warts.) On my first day off in a long time, I hit the mall naturally. My eye felt fine at the time, but trust me when I say that I knew something was wrong.
Six hours later and my poor left eye was a little swollen and itchy. By the next morning, I couldn’t pry the lids apart. So disgusting!!! I threw on some running shorts and dark sunglasses and ran over to a walk-in clinic first thing in the morning. (Of course, one always gets sick on the weekend.)
The doctor interrogated me for a while about all sorts of random health issues… I just kept telling him all I wanted was some drops!!! After lots of poking and pulling around my eyes, he finally turned away to write the prescription. That was right about the time when the already tiny room starting closing in on me. I barely had time to warn the poor guy that I was going to faint. Next thing I know I’m on my back on the table with my feet in the air.
Pink eye actually ended up being a nice little break. No parent wants me to babysit for their kids at the moment and I could catch up on emails and some miscellaneous work (read: start Season One of Mad Men.)
Finally, my eye is better! Yay! To celebrate, let me share with you things that are perfectly acceptable in pink hues.
Yes, those things may be pink.
