Confession time: I am totally obsessed with flamingos right now.
Flamingo-pink is my new favorite color, I’m frantically buying everything flamingo-related — in fact, I’ve decided that I am a flamingo! Yes, a purple-tinted flamingo. I like the birds for what they represent: exotic luxury, care-free living and retro-kitch. I also think it’s fascinating how the birds themselves aren’t at all pretty, yet they can’t seem to take a bad picture!
Yeah, you’ll be seeing a lot of flamingo-related stuff from me…
And now, time for some pictures!
Case-in-point: rose tinted flamingo glasses. These remind me of this Valfre drawing. :)
Striking my best flamingo pose…
I didn’t have flamingo socks (travesty!) so I had to settle on swallows & polkadots. Yes, both, simultaneously.
I’m lucky to have a man who understands: Mark wore a flamingo-pink shirt on my birthday! :D

What came first, the watermelon outfit or watermelon makeup? In my case, the socks!
I saw a pair of watermelon knee-highs at Fred Flare and fell in love. Soon after I found myself obsessed with watermelons! I decided to build an entire outfit, complete with makeup, inspired by watermelons — which I wore it to the Generation Beauty event. It was a big hit!
