    Got a chance to learn about a lot of pink today !!

    Quite glad that you wrote this, Parul. Pink has become so associated with gender that it’s almost impossible not to touch that topic when discussing the colour.
    For starters, if it wasn’t for my complexion, I’d gladly sport a pink shirt. Of course, this birthday I gifted my son a lovely pink toy blender, a red kitchen set, a blue vessel, a green tawa – all play sets of course, but you get the gist.

  3. I did learn something new today! Interesting. I do like pink but I like blue better, in fact blue is my favourite. Why can’t colours be just colours?

    I loved the phrase ‘tickled pink’. Something so playful about it.

    I hate pink. Something about the color does not appeal to me at all. Ditto with orange.

    Yep learned something new today Parul. Didn’t know about pink elephant or pink money! More power to pink!

  8. Pink is pretty and offsite it’s a god thing we are breaking stereotypes and learning to accept it as gender neutral

  14. Hi Pinky!:)))
    This post made me smile and I love the pic:)

  15. I wasn’t aware of Pink Collar before. Good to have learnt something new today.
    Personally, I only favor the shocking pink cz of my love for bright colors. No other shade of pink succeeds in seducing me otherwise 😀

    I am so glad you said this. Pink is a colour, albeit a beautiful colour, that looks appealing on anyone, irrespective of gender. We went out of our way to break the mould and got everything in blue for GY when she was born 😉 Just to show that blue or pink doesn’t matter. It’s the perception that does.

  18. Maisie’s new bestie Leonard wears pink shirts. She thinks they’re fab. I’m not a pink person myself. I own nothing pink…not even a pair of knickers! Bernie xx

  19. Claire says:

    I love pink. I think it is a color that is flattering to everyone.
    My daughter’s nickname is Pinky. She couldn’t say her name and loved the color pink so Pinky she became. Family still calls her that even though she is now a 30 year old attorney.

  20. I hate when the colours are used to signify a certain gender. I hated pink as a kid and refused to buy anything pink as I did not want to be stereotyped. Even today sadly, in the kids’ section in clothing stores, you find the pinks and blues. Sigh.
