Now some of you (if you’re a man) might think that you don’t actually like pink! For me…pink is also not my favourite color, the simple reason is that I have red hair…can you imagine how I would look wearing pink!  That’s okay, bear with me.  They say pink  is a color that does no harm, it is innocent, hence the connection with little girls.  It is also a color of hope, it tries to please …pink want peace! 

Pink is the color of universal love. Pink is a quiet color. Lovers of beauty favor pink. A pink carnation means “I will never forget you”. Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance. Put some pink in your life when you want to feel calm, relaxed or just be content.  It can be youthful, fun, exciting, and some shades even have the same high energy as red. They are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. The softer pinks are often associated with romance. It is the color of joy and happiness, and for women the attraction to pink can speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood. Having said all of the above, all I am asking is, “Give Pink a chance”.

Now why all of the above, you’d ask?  Earlier today I received this lovely award from the lovely and bubbly kavita …I am so honored that my dear friend chose me as one on her list, how could anyone say NO to it??  Thank you so much Kavita, that was so very sweet of you!! So without further ado, here is the award:-

Pretty.. isn’t it?! I knew you would say yes!

Now now… there are some pink rules that come with the award.. but trust me, they aren’t too tough to follow at all! Here they are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award. (I did that already… but ….. THANK YOU kavita!!!!!)

2. Share 7 things about yourself. Now that is a tall order….but I’ll try:) 

 a) I’ve already mentioned number 1 above, the fact that I have red hair!!

 b) I have a very outgoing nature and love people on all levels of life. 

 c) I am a perfectionist…I know ….a pain to some people. Lets just say I love things to be right and orderly!!  

 d) I know what I want and won’t stop until I get to my goal.   (A pain in the butt)

e) I love to stay active, try to walk 7km every day.

 f) My first language is not English, I was born in South Africa, but now  lives in Australia.

g) Red is my favourite color in the whole world! (Aries…..Scarlett O’Hara, eat your heart out!)

3. Pass the award along to 9* bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason!

4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

    Congrats, Amanda! I like pink too, but not TOO much!! I never did the all pink bedroom thing. I guess there’s a bit of the tomboy in me.
