Rethink Pink

As Valentine’s Day approaches I find myself a little hungry for some inspiration alternatives. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for love, but I’ve never been a particularly big fan of the rose petals, heart shaped chocolates, buy your sweetie something sparkly part. I also have a long standing struggle with all things pink. Then a few years ago I had little girl and despite my protests, pink worked its way into our lives and hasn’t budged since 2012. (Great article here if you’ve shared this experience). So in honor of Vday and that radiant, “girly” hue, I’m rounding up some internet gems that may even make my fellow pinkaphobes swoon.
