It’s the 2nd week of My Place & Yours over at helloowl and this week’s theme is PINK!

Well well well, it’s my favourite colour, dontcha know?

Purple was my favourite colour up until about 5 years ago or so. Suddenly my life was all about the most feminine colour of all!

I’ve been going about my life, spying certain things in the shade of pink (the RIGHT shade of pink, that is), and often talking myself out of buying these things because I “have so many things in pink already”.  Except now I’m realising that I kinda don’t.

Dammit!

So I’ve taken a bit of an inventory – stopping short at my underwear drawer and jewellery wall (cause I’m well aware of the pink overload in those cateogories!):


A trusty Tupperware container in pink form. I usually take nuts or yoghurt to work in these.


Our ONE enviro bag that isn’t green. Magically, this one is often left behind in the car – I think Dan prefers carrying the green ones into the supermarket!

Bags where I keep shoe cleaners and whatnot beside my dresser drawers. I have a larger/trolley version of the bigger bag that I use for client meetings – helps that it’s the same pink that’s in my business logo :D


Emergency sewing box on my dresser. Let the mockery of my labeling system begin!


A respectable amount of pink in my wardrobe. Only one pair of shoes feature pink.


My desk is a bit more pinkied :)

I’ve run out of time for it tonight, but tomorrow night I’m going to sit down and take a good look at all the other pink posts for the week. Hoping to get some inspiration from the other girls!

  4. Oh bloody hell, I just realised I didn’t include the photo of the contents of my handbag – Jarod, at first I was all “dur, my iphone pic is up there”. Um, no it’s not!

    Hi Jackie and Sarah – yup, I’m into the bright pink. Pale pinks are too delicate for me ;) the pink tupperware also makes sure that I eat my healthy treats and not Easter eggs!

  6. I was totally going to mention you, but figured it kinda defeated the purpose to talk about how amazingly pink someone else’s house is/was LOL

    Surely not ALL the pink has gone has it? Cause otherwise I’ll make Tom move it all back in ;)

  7. haha not ALL of it but a lot… the living/dining room (which are now the other way round) are now all orange and red. the pink curtains are still up but only til we have enough money to replace them

    there’s still some pink stuff in the kitchen (kettle, tea/coffee pots) but the vast majority of it is all gone

    i have to be a grown up now. boo.
