Okay I will admit that one of my biggest pet peeves for a long time has been the “paint it pink” syndrome. This is where a manufacturer takes a product, paints it pink, and slaps a “for the ladies” label on it. Without any further thought as to what might actually make women want or need the product – they think, “If we paint it pink, we can sell to the ladies.”
But despite my loathing of “paint it pink” as a marketing strategy, I do love the color! And this winter I seem to be surrounding myself with a lot of it! So I thought it would be fun to round up a few things I am currently loving that are PINK and participate in Pink Saturday over at the lovely blog, How Sweet the Sound.
Here are some of the pinks in my home right now: the leather cover on my new Kindle Fire HDX:
Some of my favorite ornaments on my Valentine’s Tree:
… and the pretty silk carnations sitting next to them!
These sweet, cottagey socks:
And the color scheme of this beautiful cooking magazine from – of all places – the local grocery store! This is their own in-house publication and it’s VERY nice. I am REALLY loving the raspberry-and-white combination!
Be sure to head over to Pink Saturday and look for more pink-themed posts! It’s like a breath of Spring in the middle of winter – and with something called the Polar Vortex having just passed through here, we can use it!
