pink perfection for spring



As the  mother of four boys, 
I like to pamper myself with pink. 

And, this Spring, Pink is everywhere! 
There are some incredible fashion essentials out here, 
some frivolous tasty treats, 
and so many ways to brighten up your living spaces, 
that "pinking it up" is  now easier than ever.  

Here are some of my favorite finds:

Above, peony-pink drapes can brighten up most living rooms.  
This one was featured in House & Home.


Emma Stone looks so cute with 
just the right shade of pink lipstick.  

Don't forget to sample different shades of pink 
to pick the right one for your skin tone. 


Ride a bike to run some errands.  

It's so easy now that it's Spring, 
and you'll save a wallet-full on gas . 
 I love one with a great basket to hold lots of goodies, 
and it's got to be a pretty color too!


I love the combination of pink and navy blue.  
This lovely inspiration is from pinterest



Martha Stewart does it best mixing pink 
and a bit of red in this tablescape.


Paint some framed mirrors hot pink for a unifying display 
that looks great with a group of shabby pink roses.


Create a breathtaking entry 
with the simplicity of pink and white and
 some statement succulents
 in a beautiful gray tone.


I grow these beauties in my garden.  
They're pink lemons, perfect for 
authentic "pink lemonade" .



Or try this recipe that uses passion fruit.


"Sparrow me the Drama" by OPI 
is my new favorite shade 
for Spring.


Try a mix of patterns and tones in the 
pink and white range, unifying it all with white.


Accent pieces are so much fun!


Treat yourself to a strawberry cupcake.  
These are from Casey's Cupcakes.
Pink accessories can be any easy way 
to pull together just the right look for Spring.  

Sunglasses by River Island 
and flip flops by Havaianas (my favorites). 



Rachel Bilson pulls it all together 
with a fun pink polka dot scarf. 


The perfect pink hat for a cool spring day.  
It's so cute with a blue blazer!


Miranda Kerr out and about in her soft pink slacks.  
I need these!  

Here's a pair from J.Crew:



Ferrigamo patent pink flats, oooh la la!


Pink accent pillows always look great with green. 

Invest in some vintage Pyrex mixing bowls.  
They are quite affordable at
 flea markets or on ebay.


Treat yourself to a decadent dessert. 
No special occasion necessary!


A hot pink wrap around 
studded bracelet by Tory Burch 
is just what the doctor ordered
 to raise your spirits.


I'm loving Jessica Simpson's "hot" pink Dior bag. 


Jessica Alba in "sensible" heels that add 
the perfect fun accent to her conservative outfit. 


A wow of color on Blake Lively.


Pull up a fuchsia cube and relax in this crescent shaped nook.


Soft colors in an elegant format.


Hot pink in small doses is just enough to make you smile.


Make the garden pop with a gorgeous shade of pink!


Plant some pink roses to greet you in the garden.


Tulips are a wonderful way to bring pink into your home.

Shopping for a new camera?  Consider a pink one!


I've got to try this gorgeous pink bowtie pasta, 
colored naturally with beet juice.


A handful of these 
Jelly Belly Pomegranate Cosmo beans 
is all you need to get your pink on.


Now, remember, don't get too carried away!  
A little goes a long way!


ciao! fabiana

Hi Fabiana. I love all of the pinkalicious eye candy! Those pink poodles are too cute, but I agree - it's easy to get carried away. Take care. Suzy

Debbiedoo's said...

That was some gorgeous pink eye candy. I am so happy to see you join me. I had no idea you were a Mom of four boys. Boys are fun! of course I can say that, being a Mom of two myself.

Jessica @ Stay at Home-ista said...

Thanks for sharing! I have 2 girls and a boy, so I get a lot of "orange, trains, construction trucks" from my son, and soooo much "pink, purple, princess!" from my daughter. I've been trying to add pink into our house in non-kid rooms but so far my husband has put the kabosh on it. I'll keep trying:) So glad I found you on 52 Mantels, I'm now following you.

Saw your link at Debbiedoo's party, and I'm glad I did. You have some gorgeous, inspirational photos. Do you really grow pink lemons? I didn't know they existed.

Gina said...

Stopping over from Debbie's reunion party! Thanks for sharing so many pretty pink images. I love pink.

Karla said...

Great post. Thanks for sharing. I'm hoping to incorporate more pink into my home once I paint my walls. All these pics were great inspiration. :)

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

Wow; what a pretty profusion of pink! It really is such a decidely feminine color. And with four boys, I'm sure you like a little hit of it now and again. ;)

Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday again this week.

Blessings,
Liz @ The Brambleberry Cottage

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Love the pink, my favs are the nail polish, have to look for that soon, garden bench and the tulips! Visting from the reunion party♥

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

As another mom of 4 boys, I can completely relate! I'll take pink wherever I can get it. Just bought some pink flip flops and a pink velvet ottoman :)

Martha said...

wow, love pink! never knew there were pink lemons, would love to try some sometime!

Judy said...

I am a huge pink fan...which is why I think I am always making things for my daughter's room. I don't have much pink anywhere else in the house. When we were first married I decorated most of our first apartment in pink. When we bought our first townhouse at least half was still in pink. When we bought our current home the pink is limited to my daughter's bathroom and bedroom. I guess I decided to give my husband and son a break. Lol Thanks for sharing all of your awesome pink inspiration. I saw your post over at Debbie's reunion party.

Yasmin Smith said...

New to your blogs, and I LOVE this post...I have never seen such an assortment of PINK!! I couldn't begin to tell you my favorite...it is ALL "eye-candy" to me!! I think I would love the bicycle, the nail polish, the sunglasses and the sturdy pink shoes on one of the girls.....I use pink in every room in my house and my husband does not mind at all...he says the house is for the woman, and if she is happy, everyone is happy!!!!! Lucky me!!
Thanks for posting such a delightful sight for PINK STURDAY!!!! I'll be back to see what you have for next week, for sure!!
Have a fun week......Francy (Yasmin)

Michelle said...

I love all of your 'pinks'...we have four boys and just added our first girl to the family. Before, I was neutral on the color pink...now I am finding that I really love the color! :)

I found your blog from the linky party at Debbiedoos. I love pink and am the mother of two boys. Please take a look at my crazy sofas I covered in Calypso which is a reddish pink from Maine Cottage at my blog cathywhatisoldisnew.blogspot.com.( Post title- Color My World Calypso).I tried to use a lot of aqua and yellow to distract the boys and my husband from realizing they were not red-lol! Would you mind if I pin on Pinterest the roses picture? Thanks! Cathy
