About Me

Chatty, mischievous and evolving over with time. I am trying to make sense of everything around me and having loads of fun along the way! Oh, I want to be a better person along the way.

All things pink

When asked what my favorite color is, I would probably say black or purple. I would never mention pink! So it is with shock on retrospection that I discovered most things in my bedroom are varying shades of shocking pink including my blog template!!!

I have a biscuit tin beside my laptop right now and it is the same shocking pink. I almost wore that same color to work today. I unwittingly buy pink shaded lip glossies. (I checked I have five) I am like WHAT?

Where is this love of pink coming from? Did I somehow fall in love with this color or did I get brainwashed by adverts and stuffs that pink somehow is appealing?

So yesterday, I was lying on my bed and I looked around the room and I saw for the first time what anyone entering my room for the first time would see. Pink everywhere. I even have a hand luggage box in shocking pink! It is embarrassing.

On my dresser I have two bottles of 'A touch of pink' by Lacoste, 3 Pink bottled body sprays from Victoria Secret, Hairbrush, Make up bag, showercap, pink shoes I don't wear (it hurts the eye, why did I buy it?) A large pink towel, Pink items of clothing, several in fact, at a point all of my knickers were either pink or had something pink on it, I had to specifically write in my shopping list no pink panties.

I was obsessed with pink nails too. I still have a nail polish in that shade that is actually my favorite now. I had to tell the girl who did my nails last not to show me any shade in pink.

I hated pink when I was a girl so this just baffles me. So is there any way to correct this current compulsive predisposition towards anything pink?. It seems so girlish.

Done with the pink rant it was driving me up the wall.
