Hot Pink Perfection!

Hey there, Wednesday! Let’s chat about the color PINK. Hot pink to be exact. Because we’re good friends I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve always enjoyed pink, but more of a baby pink to be exact {hence it’s the accent color on my blog and the color of my new iPhone case}. Hot pink, on the other hand, never really stole my heart. It’s not that I hated it but I just wasn’t ever into it. Enter my new hot pink woven Apple Watch band…

I LOVE IT. Like, seriously love it so so much! At first when the hubs gifted it to me for Mother’s Day I was secretly a little hesitant about the color. BUT after sporting it for over a week now, I am happy to say that I am genuinely obsessed! It’s girly on my wrist, fresh for the warmer months, a little surprising, and oh so FUN. This got me thinking! Maybe I do love hot pink?!? Yep, it happened. I think I do! No, I actually really do! 

And not only that, but I’ve kind of become a hot pink enthusiast overnight. I mean, give me alllllll the hot pink you can find!! It just puts a smile on my face! With that, I thought I would gather up a bunch of hot pink everything that I currently have my eye on to showcase for my wonderful readers on the blog! Live it, love it, sport it!

Adore it all but one thing to note: that maxi is ONLY $52 dollars!!! {and comes in other colors too if you didn’t want to jump on the hot pink train just yet}

    What a cute watch! I feel like one day a switch flipped and I wanted all things hot pink ahha

    • Dana Ivy May 18, 2016 at 9:54 am

      YES! Same exact thing happened to me! Ha! Xox

  • Lily Ayala May 18, 2016 at 10:34 am

      Ah I love it so! All the sudden! Ha! And obsessed with my apple watch! Such a great investment! Xox

  • Biana Perez May 18, 2016 at 10:38 am

    I’m on a hot pink binge as well…and wearing pink to work today haha! If you look in my purse my wallet, ipad cover & notebook are all pink oh and my sunglasses case!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    • Dana Ivy May 18, 2016 at 3:34 pm

      Hahahah! I love it! No shame there girlfriend! It’s my second favorite color to purple! I’ve always been a purple girl!! Xx

  • Julia May 18, 2016 at 10:48 am

    Love this! I am a huge pink enthusiast as well, except I usually go for more of a light pink, although I can’t really wear it since I’m so pale myself ha! How are you liking your Apple watch? I have been sooo tempted to buy the sport addition that I believe is a bit less expensive. If I do make the bludge, I will definitely be buying that band!!

    • Dana Ivy May 18, 2016 at 3:39 pm

      Ha! Pale or not you could still wear light pink! But hot pink would look great as well!! I LOVE my watch! So much!! Definitely buy the sport… such a great investment. I didn’t even wear a watch before my husband got this for me and now I can’t live without it! Let me know what you do!! Xx

  • Tamara May 18, 2016 at 11:20 am

    I love hot pink in the summer when I’m really tanned, it’s sexy and cute!


    Tamara –

    • Dana Ivy May 18, 2016 at 3:41 pm

      Oh yeah for sure! It’s a perfect color for when you’re tan! Xox

  • Jalisa May 18, 2016 at 12:05 pm

    I love all of these hot pink picks, girlie, you know how much I love pink, too! The watch band looks so good against your skin and I love the woven fabric, indeed perfect for warmer months! I can’t help but notice your gorgeous rings, they are BEAUTIFUL, the hubs did well! You’ve got me really interested in getting one of those Swell bottles, you’ve shared them a few times here, so I know they must be amazing! Thank so much for sharing, gorgeous girlie, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!



    • Dana Ivy May 18, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      Okay before I say anything I want to tell you that I took a screenshot of your response and texted to my hubs since you gave him a major compliment on my rings! He wrote back and said “so nice! tell her thanks!”hahaha

      Also, I know you do love pink as well!! You should TOTALLY get the pink swell bottle! They keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 12. I use mine everything and love it so much!!

      Hope you’re having the best day, Jalisa!! Xox
