Pink is all of our favourite things - it is our favourite leather jacket, cotton candy, sunrise and sunset, florals, musk sticks, lipstick, blushing cheeks, bubblegum and sorbet. In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is positive and calming, inspiring warmth and comfort. much more than a fluffy sentimentality, The colour pink is said to calm and reassure our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect. Psychologists tell us that that exposure to large amounts of the colour can have a calming effect on the nerves and create physical weakness in people. Pink is also a reminder to stay silly and girlish, and forget our adult responsibilities if only for a moment.Also, The colour pink was named after a dutch flower named pinken and anything named after fauna is a -okay by us.

an ode to red lipstick & gwen

an ode to red lipstick & gwen Ill never forget the first time I put on red lipstick. I read in a trashy magazine that it was Gwen Stefanis staple item, her go-to pick me up during a bad day. The world could end, but thered still be her and her red lipstick. It was the early 2000s with fond memories of No Doubt and her solo album Love.Angel.Music.Baby about to hit. Needless to say, she was the coolest-person-evaaaa. Her praise for red was like scripture for gangly tween me and so off I went; to hunt down my Mums favourite lippy, fish it out of her purse and sneakily take it to a sleepover with me. I distinctly remember walking down the stairs of my friends house at 7am on a Saturday morning, red hue messily applied on my virgin lips.
I sat at the table, waiting for the pancake ritual that followed most girly sleepovers. I must have been a pretty charismatic kid because Id somehow convinced my friend to put some on too. And so there we sat, trying to subtley-yet-so-obviously purse our lips so somebody would applause our dazzling beauty. Enter the ber cool older sister, wearing an over large Nirvana t-shirt, looking ever dischevelled in a way we clearly hadnt mastered yet. She took one glance at my friend and I and screeched Why the eff are you both wearing that?! You look like baby hookers! I think I mumbled something about beloved Gwen whilst my cheeks flushed to match my Revlon Ravishing Red. Case closed.
Im proud to say years later I somehow plucked up the courage to try the red lipstick trend again and the outcome was a little more favourable. But in hindsight turns out my first beauty mishap sparked a deep fascination within me for creative people and their quirks. I live for candid interviews, photos and offbeat remarks that inspire us to find that our own sense of authenticity and embrace what makes us uniquely ourselves.
And for a girl navigating her early 20s, finding yourself is such a bizarre concept. In theory its a dazzling treasure hunt through relentless opportunity and ambition. In reality, its a nervous expedition filled with fear, insecurity and a whole lot of negative self talk. And probably some Nutella and reality TV.But thats where these glimpses inspire.For me, hearing about Marilyn Monroes love affair with Chanel No 5 inspired me to find my own signature scent and wear YSLs Baby Doll every. single. day. (This probably contributed to the baby hooker comment, see above). When I found out the Olsen twins secret to doe eyes was brown eyeliner, I decided to make layer upon layer of mascara my thing. And even aside from beauty, theres little quirks like favourite colours, eating spots, bars, staple wardrobe items, creative processes, sources of inspiration and downtime rituals. We are so lucky to be in a society where as women we feel empowered enough to make our own choices and decisions about what we wear, what we do and who we are. May we continue drawing inspirations from those we love and celebrating creativity. So heres my ode to every glimpse that has ever made me brave. Brave enough to wear red lipstick now. Cheers Gwen Xo.
