A Hint of Honeysuckle

I’m not really much of a pink girl (although salmon suits me fine), which doesn’t bode well for me this year, considering Pantone’s pick of Honeysuckle Pink as the color of the year. Even though I’ve already had my fill of hearing about honeysuckle, I’d hate to be totally out of the loop.…
