Life through Rose Colored Glasses

If only life was as pretty as it is when seen through rose colored glasses.  If you adore pink as much as I do, you’d agree that it can be used in almost any element of style for a beautiful aesthetic. With Spring’s recent “debut” we are seeing pink on the racks, at beauty counters, in the pages of magazines and all over pinterest and instagram.  Rose pink is not just a pretty color, the natural elements of rose hips and rose seed oil contain a power amount of vitamin C, that have proven to make incredibly effective beauty products. At the moment, my go to day cream is Laura Mercier’s Infusion de Rose Nourishing Crème .  Rose gold has also become a very popular metal for accessories, for hardware on handbags and clothing. Currently, these are some of my favorite rose inspired products and images.

Saint Valentin

snow heart

For the last couple of years inclement weather has pummeled the northeast in the month of February.  This is when north easterners find themselves wondering what they are doing living in a place where the temps reach such awful lows and it is often hard to leave their homes.   And then, we have Valentine’s Day, the day we can all forget about the nasty weather and celebrate love and romance…enter screeching record.  As I recall, in my twenties, there was a fine line between loving February 14th and completely loathing the date along with the rest of February, it all depended on whether you were actually “in love”.  Even if you were “lucky” enough to have a valentine, does he ever really get it right?!?   I’ll leave that question up for pondering.  I’ve learned to love Valentine’s Day for the onslaught of pink, girly gifts and for the idea that we should celebrate love whether it is shared with a significant other, a friend or family.

For fun here are a few things I’m inspired by this Valentine’s Day!

For the love of pink

I would love for Mr. A to bring these home on Valentines Day
