Pink Pinspiration

Hey Everyone!

After completing a (rather odd) english creative writing assignment based around my favourite colour, I got to thinking about why pink is my favourite colour. I came up with three reasons:
 1. Its relation to other colours 
Its quite a quirky colour- it doesn't have a sure polar but stands out in a palette in its own way. Its a mix of red (fiery, passionate) and white (mellow and pure) and there are a whole variety of different shades: cerise and crimson and fuschia and rose. I think it reflects my personality.
2. What it represents in society
It is a symbol of femanism, a colour used to bring all women together for the common cause of equality and fairness. I am a strong supporter of this cause in all its forms, and believe that pink represents more than just a colour: it is a force for unity.
3. Its superficial associations
Let's face it: pink is pretty! I'm a big fan of the whole sparkle and hearts shebang... as you can probably tell from the layout!

Do you actually know why your favourite colour is your favourite colour? Its actually really interesting to think about and not just say generically.

What started off as a few of my latest pins has turned into a philosophical post haha- this is what happens when I write late at night!

What is your favourite colour and why?
