A teacher is so obsessed with pink that she has decorated her entire house in the pretty hue and worn it head-to-toe every day for more than a decade.

Yasmin Charlotte, 32, has loved blush and bubblegum tones ever since she was a little girl. Over the years she has built up a huge collection of pink household items, clothes and accessories – including 100 pairs of shoes from high heels to Dr Martens boots.

Although Yasmin doesn’t know exactly how much she has spent creating her own pink paradise, she insists it's been worth every penny.

Having worked as a teacher for three and a half years, Yasmin hopes that her unique style will encourage her pupils to embrace their own individuality.

Keen to show off her style to the world, she curated an Instagram account dedicated to her pink lifestyle. By sharing her life, she hopes to encourage other people to feel confident enough to embrace their uniqueness.

“I would love it if everybody had the strength to wear individual stuff if it really makes you happy … Just do whatever makes you happy,” she writes on an Instagram caption.
