Even after a year's reign as Pantone colour of the year, millennial pink still takes the lead as the world’s most beloved aesthetic. We simply can’t even because this shade of pink is so soothing, so natural, and yet it stands out on it’s own in a pastel-like kind of way.
Plus, it makes good Instagram pictures - a very important factor in the millennial world, because who doesn’t want a good picture tbh? If only Regina George from Mean Girls could see us right now, she would be only too pleased at the pastel pink audacity we have become.
In light of National Pink Day this coming 23rd of June, let’s celebrate with a list of millennial pink essentials you totally need right now. Like, no joke. You need these in your life, as do I.
Marilyn is the millennial pink hatbox of dreams - it’s sure to make every girl’s heart flutter for the love of pink-toned flowers. Soft pink gerberas, cherry pink roses, pink carnations, and white ping pongs are artistically arranged to form a lively bouquet. It’s something pretty and pink that you’ll definitely need at least once in your life.
This undeniably pink bouquet is both beautiful and cuddlesome. Aiko features a handcrafted arrangement of baby pink roses, pastel eustomas, and purple caspia atop a posies of intense green foliage. This hatbox would be such a treat in your home. It comes with a cute plush bunny for cuddly moments and a 200ml bottle of Nicolas Feuilatte One Four Rose sparkling wine for fun moments. So pink and perfect - even Regina George approves.
Everlasting roses are so essential right now, everyone either has one or is getting one for their friends or themselves. Eternity Candy features an everlasting rose of cotton candy dreams in the lovely shade of candy pink. A glimmering crystal centrepiece is nestled gently in the rose bud.
