Five for August

I always feel like all I do for posts on this blog is make lists, but I’m just really good at lists. They are really useful for combining tons of stuff all at once without me having to ramble on and on. It’s the beginning of a new month (what the heck) so I thought I would try something new. Rather than sharing some of my favorite things from the month at the end of said month, I thought I would share some things everyone should know about at the beginning. Kind of like those release radar or things to do this month articles in magazines.

Since it’s a work in progress, I tried to combine local things to do with some things everyone should check out no matter where they are. I thought it would be good to cover things like live music, movies, album releases, and just other things worth knowing about. Of course, they will be catered to things I want to recommend, do, or enjoy. So as much as random karaoke night at some dodgy bar sounds, it’s not likely to be found here. I  think this is a great way of making my blog more personal since when blogs first came on the scene they were about our personal lives. There’s probably a really sad LiveJournal or Xanga record out there of my incredibly emo high school years. But rather than go that far I thought why not try to be myself a little bit more?

I Guess ‘Millennial Pink’ is a Trend

‘Millennial Pink’ is the color that just won’t go away. No seriously, according to New York Magazine, the color is here to stay and we see it so much we don’t even realize it. It appears in hair color, drinks, clothing, and even make up palettes. Truth be told it’s not even really a color of its own. It’s simply a descriptive word for any color pink from cotton candy to a dusty rose or blush. It can even describe the color that falls between beige and peach.

According to The Cut, “It’s ironic pink, pink without the sugary prettiness. It’s a non-color that doesn’t commit, whose semi-ugliness is proof of its sophistication.” You’ve pretty much seen it everywhere. Heck there’s even an Instagram account dedicated to the color. I’m not sure why this is a trend, but I like it because with all of the variations of pink it encompasses there’s something for everyone. Yeah even I can find some pieces of “millennial pink” to incorporate into my own wardrobe. It’s a little feminine without trying too hard. Either way it doesn’t appear the color is going anywhere too soon.
