Surrounded by Pink
Hello everyone! How’s your day going so far? I’ve been pretty lazy haha. I woke up at 8 am and just sat around, reading some blogs, reading a book, and enjoying the contact my butt was having with the couch :). Finally, at 11 am I decided to go workout. But, my laziness kicked in and instead of making the effort to drive to the gym I went down to our basement to get in a lifting sesh. It was a good one though, and I worked hard, so being lazy paid off haha.
Oh! And I was so proud of myself, I even made sure to incorporate some ab exercises into my workout. 1 ab workout down, 3 more to go for the week according my new August goal!
So, as I was watching the Bachelorette last night (yes I’ve been watching it this season…and yes I LOVE JP) I realized that I was surrounded by pink. Huh? Let me explain.
I was already in my pj’s, and my bottoms were pink.
They even say “Love Pink” and are from the PINK Victoria’s Secret line.
My pink purse was sitting nearby-
…as was my fairly new pink iPod nano.
My cell phone with its pink cover was right next to me-
My Macbook pro was on top of its pink case, which was sitting on my lap-
And, my toe nails are currently painted pink (as they usually are)-
So, now you now what I mean. I was surrounded by pink things.
I sort of realized that I apparently gravitate toward the color pink, and started wondering why I am. I don’t generally like just any “pink” color either. It’s usually the brighter pinks or the ones that are warmer. Not those baby, barely there pink colors- those just don’t do it for me. Perhaps I like pink because well, I’m a girl and in our society pink is thrown in our faces as soon as our parents discover our gender. But, I don’t think that’s why I’ve continued to like the color for my entire life.
I think I like the vibrant and warm pink colors because they give off a “happy” vibe. They aren’t depressing and drab colors. Those pinks scream fun, flirty, giddy, and summer (at least to me). Which frankly, I associate all of those “words” with happy times. That’s probably why I even like to get bright pink sweaters in the winter- they boost my mood. Call me crazy, but they do.
I also really like pink because sometimes it feels plain awesome to be a girly girl. I’m not always super girly. I don’t dress up that often. I really only style my hair in 1 of several ways. And I usually prefer shorts and jeans to skirts and dresses. But to me, wearing pink or carrying a pink accessory just makes me feel girly and pretty. I can’t really explain why, it just does. Which is why I apparently gravitate toward that color without always knowing it :).
Even though I do love the color, at least I never wear too much pink at one time and look like a girl who had a pink fairy throw up all over her :). I don’t think I would like that.
Do you have a color that you tend to purchase items in? Why?
