Pink Cardigan: Although I do have a few pink items in my wardrobe I am not a natural-born worshiper of all things pink. It wasn’t therefore the colour that drew me to this Dries Van Noten cardigan but rather the embroidery and I also liked that it is possible to button it in various ways (there are buttons on the inside as well as the outside) for an ever so slightly different look. I have had it for a long time (I am guessing since 2003 as I know I had it before I moved in 2004) and have worn it lots so on cost per basis it was a very good buy.
Pink Paper: I buy the Financial Times on a Saturday not for updates on the ever-deepening global economic crisis but because I love the different sections and magazines that are part and parcel of the FT weekend edition. I especially like reading Vanessa Friedman’s take on fashion, Jancis Robinson’s take on wine and Susie Boyt’s take on life’s many glorious and inglorious facets. Just in case you didn’t know the FT (established in 1888) has been printed on salmon pink paper since 1893; according to the FT website this was to distinguish it from its then rival the Financial News.
Pink Fish: I am now convinced, by many articles I have read, of the health benefits of wild Alaskan salmon. According to ‘The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth’ by Jonny Bowen not alone is it an excellent source of high quality protein but it is also one of the best sources of Omega 3’s (they are the good fats that are helpful for heart and brain health) on the planet. On top of that a 3oz serving delivers almost half of the daily recommended dose of selenium and vitamin B12 as well as a fair amounts of potassium and niacin. Oh and it also taste good.
