Cute Shoot: the Pinkening

Beauty, Fashion, Lifestyle July 27, 2016

Maybe you haven’t noticed but pink is kinda my favorite color. Actually, pink is a serious obsession of mine. Things like this always get me thinking. Why do we favor colors? There have actually been quite a few studies about this and it is referred to as the ecological valence theory. Nerd alert 🤓!!!  I won’t get too deep but basically we’ve evolved to use color for survival then we feel all the feels when we see our favorite colors. The more feels we feel the more we favor our favorite color. That’s the evolution/socialization debate in like two sentences. Where’s my Pulitzer? 

Ultimately, I think Aerosmith said it right …

“Pink it’s my new obsession 

Pink it’s not even a question, 

Pink on the lips of your lover, ’cause 

Pink is the love you discover”

“Pink it was love at first sight, and 

Pink when I turn out the light 

Pink gets me high as a kite 

And I think everything is going to be all right 

No matter what we do tonight.”

My boyfriend and I love to talk, no postulate, on things from gender roles, to religion, to minority issues, to how we can better the world through knowledge. This weekend we found ourselves cuddling on the couch talking about basic principles of evolution, religion, and the limits of human understanding. It served to remind me of how important social interaction is. Exchanging ideas and getting excited about the debate gave me the energy to get half way through this week. So, basically I’m thankful for my completely nerdy boyfriend. We should all find ways to engage in our passions this week. How do you know something is a passion? What gets your blood pressure up, puts a ridiculous smile on your face, and keeps you up at night with ideas? That’s probably your passion. Find yours and thrive.
