Fabulous Fridays – Pink

It’s pretty, it’s girly and it’s fun and a lot of us stay away from it after our 10th birthday. Yet there is no denying that pink is a happy colour.  From powdery baby pink to the deepest fuchsia and every shade in between, pink has a feel-good factor about it that I think few women of any age will deny.

But the reason I have chosen this colour today is because, as you know, pink and the pink ribbon are the chosen logos for breast cancer awareness. October is breast cancer awareness month and I wanted all these pretty pink images to remind you to do your duty to yourself and to your loved ones to go and get checked out.

  2. Pink is not my favorite color, but I think it's well choosen for the breast cancer purpose. One of my friends just came out of the hospital. Fortunately she didn't loose her breast and feels quiet well. What a terrible disease !

  5. I have a pink kitchen, you know, a relic of younger days when pink was my all time favorite color. (The all too permanent floor tile is pink, and I've never been able to find a color to re-paint the cabinets that really meshed with the floor.) So I've decided to embrace the pink, and call it a "retro" kitchen :)

    (And I have several friends who are breast cancer survivors, thanks to early detection.)
