Black equals Power Pink equals Tranquility

"Black is the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or evil. Villains, such as Dracula, often wear black.
The most romantic color, pink, is more tranquilizing. Sports teams sometimes paint the locker rooms used by opposing teams bright pink so their opponents will lose energy."

So what do black and pink mean when put together?? I used to wear black and pink all the time when I had to dress up for work. I guess it would say, I am powerful, yet I still have a feminine side! Which is really true for me.

One of my favorite movies was Legally Blond. It was all about the color! Actually now that I think about it, thats kinda what the movie signified. She wore pink to everything, yet she was going to Harvard (or Yale cant remember), and they all thought she was just fluff and sweetness.
So I think pink and black would make a good statement! And contrary to popular belief, redheads CAN wear PINK! I do it all the time :o)

Here it is.....What you've been waiting for.....
Thats the link to tomorrows feature thread which will be PINK AND BLACK! Dont let me down now...... get those links in there!

I've been tagged!

Not sure what it means exactly lol, but it says I have give you 7 fact about me. Some random or weird. and tag 7 other bloggers!

Fact #1:
Im really hungry so I decide to eat something I havent eaten in a while. UMM its so tasty! Now what? NOW I eat the same thing every day for OH how long? Sometimes week. Sometimes 2 weeks! Sometimes longer! thats my weird one.

Fact #2
I owned my own consignment shop for 2 years, and LOVED it! I sold women and childrens clothes and accessories. Even though the shop made money, it didnt make ENOUGH money to help with household bills AND pay the shops bill too. SO I had to close it. The name of my shop was CHIC REPEATS. I am currently going to school fulltime getting my prereqs to get into the nursing program. I already have my plans made. I want to finish school. THEN I will work as a nurse on the weekends two 16 hour days (you get paid for 40 hours here, although you are only working 32, since you are working the weekend shift).
That will leave my whole week open! SO, then I will reopen my shop, 2 days a week.
Ok now Im rambling...
Next fact:
I love gold~ I love to FIND gold! I sell gold when I find it! Im not sure what makes me like it, I think because its pure and it will never change, it wont disentigrate (sp?). I have made lots of money off gold. A lot of people dont know how to tell if something is real or not. Heres a little tip for you. If it will stick to a magnet it is NOT gold.
Next fact:
I can play the piano! by ear, not by note. Its very strange. I can hear the song, and sit down to play it. Maybe not perfectly but pretty well. It runs in my family!
Next fact:
Random fact--I deal with anxiety everyday. Its not fun. I take medication for anxiety. I do not like to have to depend on a pill to make me feel normal! Im hoping I grow out of it :o)
Next fact:
I've got your back! I am SO about taking up for people. I believe that when something is right its RIGHT. Not just for me, but for everybody. I will go to great lengths to fight for what is right. There is no inbetween!
Last fact:
I can make tamales and tortillas and Im white :op but my kids and husband are spanish so maybe thats kinda cheating....

7 people I have to tag are:

good afternoon Etsians!

I hope everyone's afternoon is going well! I just to work so I will be working on posting todays features in a just a bit. Do you know the history of denim?? Its probably something most have never really thought about. It has actually been around since the 17th century, but I must say, the name LEVIS is synanonymous with denim! There was a pair of original levis that were dug up in the desert somewhere that sold for like 100,000 on auction. Even now, Levis are worth a lot of money! I have personally sold a pair of BIG E Levis on ebay that I bought for a dollar at a flea market, that holes and were wore out for 300.00!
Heres a link to a little history about denim, that way you can feel like you learned something today...

I'm getting ready to start featuring, so if you haven't yet posted the link to your item, please do so now at the thread link in the previous post.
