I'm Leaving...

If your updated on my blog, you probably already know that I decided to move my blog a couple days ago. Well, just yesterday, I decided that I really do not have the time and commitment to continue blogging, at least until the next semester of school begins. So (at least for now), I'm going to be leaving.

If I ever do come back, I'll keep posting on this blog. I'll leave all the blog posts up for future stumble-uponers, there just won't be any new ones. I hope for this short period of time with me as a blogger, you all found something enjoyable and delightful. I will miss all of you, especially those who sat down and truly became my friend through this process, and will continue to think of all of you throughout the remainder of this semester.

Here's a list of my favorite blogs and blogettes; please do make sure to check them out on my behalf. They're just as good, if not better, than Pinkscript was once. I hope I brought something special into your life, if not only just for a second, for the brief half-year I've been blogging. Never forget and always cherish. <3

I'm Moving...

Hello everyone!
I'm here today with some sad - or, not so sad, in another aspect - news. That is, I'm moving.
Not myself, the blog.

This was a tough decision to make, but in the end, the best decision. I've outgrown Pinkscript and am looking forward to a new chapter in my life, in college.

I'll keep this update short and to the point; my new blog will be a similar lifestyle blog only aimed towards a new audience: high-school students, university students, and younger adults. The name or URL is not determined yet, so I can't provide a link, but will continue to update through this process.

Leave a comment below for any name suggestions; I really appreciate it and hope you all continue with me down my journey as a bloggette.

Xo, Essie

The Pink List: Wardrobe Essentials

Our wardrobes are pretty big parts of our lives (especially if you're an intern, student, or model like me and Lauren!). This week's Pink List is all about wardrobe essentials and basics, down to the nitty-gritty stuff and the must haves (for fashionistas or not). Enjoy!

1. 5 neutral spaghetti strap tank tops, preferably white, nude, grey, brown, and black, for layering and under-garment.
2. 5 thick-strapped tank tops, in white, nude, and 3 colors of your choice, for athletics, layering, and beach pull-overs.
3. 2 neutral transparent blouses, both in white, for top-layering and classic chic business outfits when paired with a spaghetti-strapped tank top underneath.
4. Brown shoes, such as flats, gladiators, oxfords, boots, ect., for easy pairing with neutral outfits.
5. 3 pairs of short denim, preferably in white, dark blue, and black, for classic pairing with tops.
6. A "little black dress" that's simple-yet-perfect for any occasion.
7. 2 cardigans, preferably plain in brown and black, for a pretty effect and adding a more "formal" style.

Hair Up, Hair Down: Etiquette

Everyone posts about hair care, hair styling, and healthy hair - but I've never actually seen a post on hair etiquette. It's a little out-of-the-ordinary, but taming your hair and knowing when-to-wear-what is important, too! So, without further ado, here's a list of etiquettes you should always practice when it comes down to hair.

1. Unless you're attending a costume party or culture festival, you should never wear your hair up in an "afro". Afro-like hairstyles scream wild and unnecessary, especially for school or formal outings.
2. Wear it soft, 99% of the time. Soft hair is usually more delicate and looks not only healthier, but also prettier in the way that it's easier to style. It gives the impression that you spent time on your hair and you care.
3. Never leave your hair unattended. When your eating, clip it up. When you're parting, let it down. Everything changes with occasion, but just make sure to never leave your hair unattended.
4. Trim it. A lot. Super long hair (a couple inches above your waist) is hard to attend to and maintain. A good rule of thumb if to measure the inches down from your chest area - 0 to 12 inches longer is fine, while anything after that is a sign you need to go trim your hair
5. Wearing hair straight versus wearing hair curled. A good measure I like to use to determine if I should wear my hair straight or curled is how formal the event I'm attending is. If it's a large school gathering like homecoming or prom, then go for large, soft curls. If it's semi-formal like a big sporting event or concert, wear it wavy. And, if it's just a normal day at school, wear it straight.
