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.

Pink sure has a way of sneaking up on a girl. I used to have a lot of things that were pink, well i still do. What can i say, i love the color. You need to see me sometimes on my way to work, pink ear phones, black and pink tote bag, black skater shoes with pink laces or just black and pink skater shoes, pink coffee cup, pink hoodie.... yep! That's me.

Sting: Sneak is the word for it.

J'aime ROSE. I love PINK so much and I dont care what they say. My glasses is pink, my bag is pink, my room is pink, I have so much pink things it quite disgusting sometimes. I have always loved pink and I will always love pink. A silly bitch once told me that she finds it hard to take me seriously because I wear so much pink things and I said "I found it hard to take seriously, a person who would judge me based on the color that I like". Anyhoos my take Lucious Ron, is Love it if you must. Norrin do you and pink. Before I went to Grad school, I decided to stop wearing pink, until I just snapped out of it. A color does not define me o jare. Happy monday Luscious.

You'll always have pink sturves as a lady. So dont stress yourself bout getting rid of the ones you have.

I personally I'm not a Pink fan, but I find that I have pink sturves.

The recommendations will do a lot for my business. thanks.

bumight said...

as if you read my mind! i was telling one of my friends that for somebody that hates pink, i sure do have a lot of pink clothes- that week alone, i wore pink three times!

i think i rebel against pink because the society has associated it with girl girls.
pink does sneak up on ladies ;)

~Sirius~ said...

Wow! a lot of pink, I doubt if I'd survive one day in your life....

Come to think about it, I have nothing Pink!...hmmm

Used to love it though, but Black seems to have taken over.

LusciousRon said...

Oluwadee: It seems so.

Fantasy Queen: A pink room with pink drapes et al? AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

Smaragd: I think I will have another go on your couch. The question got me thinking.

Bumight: Maybe we should have a pink free week.

Sirius: Are you serious? Not even a tiny little bit of scrap material in pink? U are lucky!
