Hey, quick question: How many times have you done something solely for the Instagram? (Don’t worry, I won’t tell Aunt Doris who is already on your case about “living in the moment” and all that.) Chances are, you’ve done it at least a few times like the rest of us, and the world is listening. Over the past couple of years, Instagram-friendly spaces, particularly millennial pink ones, have cropped up seemingly all over the place while other natural wonders, like Senegal’s Lake Retba (should be the 8th Wonder, tbh) and India’s Hawa Mahal, have saturated the feeds of hashtag #pinkaesthetic pages.

But why do we love pink so much? According to graphic designer, Vivian Cheung, it comes down to nostalgia. “We love pink because it’s nostalgic of Barbie, bubble gum, cotton candy, and ballet shoes. We associate it with sweetness, youth, and a sense of calm,” Cheung says.
