Color Crush: African Violet and Google Reader

UPDATE: So before we get on to the main show, I'm late on this whole google reader/gfc retirement. I, like so many of you, am furious with this development. I have only 1/6 of my readers on bloglovin... so this is a hit to say the least! I had several other feed sources linked to my reader, so I'm not sure if I'm going to make the transition to bloglovin or another rss feed reader like feedly. What are y'all planning on doing? 

In the meantime, I'm adding all of my blogs to blog lovin so I don't lose anyone! So add me! I have a button over on the side (looks like the feed button, but it's really bloglovin... I should probably change that) or just click here.

For my next installation of color crush I'm featuring African Violet. This is such a pretty color and makes me so ready for spring time!

African Violet

How pretty is that Oscar de la Renta dress? Oh my goodness. I'm absolutely dying, in love. I want to wear it every day and twirl around Capitol Hill.

Growing up I was more of a pink girl, as opposed to a purple one. In my house there were three girls and we were each "assigned" colors to differentiate between our possessions. My color was pink, Sara's was purple, and Beckie got whatever the other option was. Ha. Sucks to be the youngest. Now that I think back on it, those assignments were even reflected in the walls of our rooms. Mine was pepto-pink and I loved it. Sara's was a lavender, and Beckie had white/blue.

Anyways, back to African Violet. I've totally been crushing on this color lately. I love it paired with Emerald. Anyone else?
 
So what are you feeling currently?

Such a pretty shade of purple! It would look amazing as a nail polish!

Sara said...

Obsessed with purple-- especially this shade. I can't say whether I am a pink or purple girl. I love them both way too much. Time out-- do you have a sister named Sara? This is fabulous.

I've found that even if a blog hasn't "joined" bloglovin, if i enter the RSS feed, I can usually find it!

I am still going to follow via GFC (that is how I read my blogs anyway). People say that is leaving after Google Reader but I don't believe it. I have opened up a BlogLovin account but we shall see...
