What is your favourite colour?
Mine is pink. I like a baby, light or dusty pink, not the bright, bubble-gum, pop kind of pink. I know people will take their favourite colour and use it everywhere. They will paint their room pink, wear it, and even dye their hair that colour. But I just don’t seem to surround myself with my favourite colour. It is nowhere to be seen in my everyday life. Anyone who knows me would think my favourite colour is probably white, grey, black or navy. So I am trying to make a conscious effort to include pink more in my everyday life.
The first way I introduced pink back into my routine is through my shower. I picked up my favourite summery shower gel, the Sugar Crush body wash by Soap and Glory. This is my go to shower gel in the summer, it’s moisturising, but feels light and refreshing on your skin, and has a great sweet/citrus scent. As with all Soap and Glory products it comes in pink packaging and just the look of the packaging makes me happy. I love its retro design. I also got my go to body scrub, the Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub. This is my favourite because I love how thick but exfoliating it is on your skin. I feel like it really gets to work at removing dead skin, whilst not drying the skin out. Plus it smells like maple syrup, and I love me some maple syrup. Next I picked up the L’Oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I used to use this all the time when I was at secondary school, it always left my hair feeling super soft and smelling good. I decided to repurchase and I love how soft my hair feels. Lastly I got the Good Things Stay Clear Purifying Cleanser. Again, I liked the packaging but it is what I need for my skin, it is anti-blemish which is what I tend to get. It also smells of blueberries and mango which is great for these summer months. My whole shower right now is all about how good the product smells, as well as how it looks. Forget the benefits, I am completely going for whether the product makes me happy or not.
I recently visited the Lush in Brighton and came across this Think Pink Bath Bomb, and I just knew it was a sign that I had to have it. What better way to add more pink into your life than with a bath bomb? This bath bomb is super glittery and smells of vanilla. I cannot wait to have a nice relaxing bath with it. I have a basket of lush bath bombs that need using but this will definitely be the next one I pop in my bath.
Whilst browsing the shelves of Primark I found these light pink cushions. I’ve been needing some cushions to go with my new white duvet cover set, and I knew I could kill two birds with one stone by getting these pillows. They add a nice touch of pink to my room and didn’t break the bank. Adding little things like pillows are a great way to change the look and feel to a bed, sofa or room. I feel a subtle bit of colour on white bed sheets makes the bed look more like a great relaxing place to collapse into after a long day.
Adding my favourite colour to my frequently visited places throughout my regular day to day routine has definitely helped me feel happier and more positive. I feel a little bit like Elle Woods in legally Blonde, and just look at how happy and positive she was. Now all I need to do is get more pink into my office, not sure how well that will go down with the two guys I share an office with, but all well.
