My obsession with a rosy glow continues.
I am seeing pink everywhere and I feel the need for pink, everywhere.
Interiors, wardrobe and accessories are calling to me in all shades of rose – especially the soft ballerina tones. We will be renovating soon and this shade is going to play centre stage; I am not sure exactly where but I feel compelled.
I can’t help it; I’m smitten.
When I thought about Christmas gift guides this year my first reaction was, “rose”. I would like everything rosy, so if you (my darlings) are reading – take note. Why not colour code and have a colour crush? There are worse obsessions.
Call me girly, but I don’t know many women who don’t flirt a little with all shades pink. It might not be a full-blown affair but a mere temptation. If nothing else we can all wear a nude lipstick or a blush lip balm; every handbag should have one.
The thought of gift giving and the what-to-give can be excruciatingly long-winded or remarkably easy.
I give with two thoughts in mind- what I would love to receive and what I know would be appreciated. If it’s “what I want” then hopefully it’s “what she wants”. Present ideas for girls are far easier than for the boys. Can I say that? Yes. I find it so much easier to shop for my girls than for my boys – I try hard to be original but the boys seem to know what they like much more than me.
When it comes down to it there is nothing wrong with practical gifts. Sensible combined with a little whimsy makes for many winners. And besides, when do we ever buy for ourselves what we need? (These definitely count as practical with a side of frivolous.)
The art of giving is a shared pleasure – one for me and one for you.
What She Wants
Take It From The Top
Thinking gifts and giving does put me in the holiday spirit.
I found these other fab lists to be extra inspirational, especially the “Millennial Pinks” and this one. I’ve made my Christmas lists and started ticking off already, thanks to some of these cute ideas.
Next week I might try and come up with something for the boys. Not promising though ;) xv
