iLove Pink

So, anyone hear any news today?

iDunno.

iThink there was a huge announcement about an iPad of some sort…

You know, the iPad didn’t really rock my world. Why? Because it lacks a few things that are deal breakers for me- a webcam, USB connectivity and ability to play Flash websites. For now I will be passing on essentially a really big ass iPhone that costs over $500.

But I digress.

This post is about how I LOVE pink. It’s a color I look good in (looks at hot pink t-shirt), and it’s a color that’s girly and happy. However, I despise baby pink. You know the shade of pink I am talking about…baby shower pink. The “OH EM GEE it’s a girl!” pink.

Ew.

Naturally, when I started thinking about how I need want a laptop, I thought it’d be fabulous to have a hot pink laptop.

Which is apparently a major pain in the ass to find. Dell has a pink laptop and it’s ”promise pink” or the color of the breast cancer awareness ribbon, and I think it’s great. Not hot pink, but I can live with the color and it’s for a good cause. I am at Best Buy on Sunday, and I see it- a Inspiron 1440 Dell Promise Pink laptop for only $479. I have it in my hands, I walk around the store with it, and you wanna know what ended up happening?

Come on, guess.

I put it back on the shelf, left with my toner and immediately regretted my decision. We went to a few other stores, and I couldn’t get the laptop out of my head. Why didn’t I buy it you might ask?

Because I am freakin’ nuts. I would have gotten 18 months no interest on the purchase- so, ohhhh about $36 a month. Not gonna break the bank. But in my psycho mind, I convinced myself if I bought the laptop I’d regret it once I ended up homeless and had no access to Wi-Fi or electricity for that matter.

Clearly I have more issues than a daily newspaper. I know. It’s not news.

When I finally did decide to take the plunge, I called every damn Best Buy in the San Antonio area and none of the stores had it. NONE.

Now my only option is to pay $579 for the slightly beefed up version or settle for this heinous blue one. I know i could buy a laptop skin, but I am still hell bent on a pink laptop.

Then I found this one:

It’s $450 at Best Buy, so it’s not by any means affordable/cheap since it is a netbook.

But it is a hot pink netbook.

I really need to get my priorities straight.

Have I bought a laptop yet? No. I am nervous about ending up homeless because I can’t afford $36 monthly payments. I eventually will buy one, but I am going to hold out for something I really, really want.

But here are some other hot pink goodies I found lately:

Beautiful ring at Flowery Deer on Etsy.

A handbag that has hot pink in it by the uber fab Kate Spade. I want this bag. I would consider giving a kidney for it. Half a kidney. I WANT!

card

Business card holder (that I bought and love!) from OC Styles.

Hot pink corset from Lane Bryant.

Lovely heels from DSW.

 chair

Hot pink chair from Target. I would love to buy 2 of these for my future nursery.

sony

Sony camera from Wal-Mart.

As you can see, there are a ton of hot pink items out there, and I want about 75% of them. What color are you obsessed with lately? Is there a color you can’t stand?

  2. Pink is okay, but it is a bit to happy for me. I go gaga for deep reds and would love a red netbook. Then I would be all set with my red phone, red hair, red velvet bedding, etc.

    I am not impressed with the tablet. Too little bling for way toooo much cash. It is like my iTouch only bigger. Blah.

  3. I am not digging the ipad. I do however adore my iphone.

    I am and have been for years obsessed with purple. I am loving that the color has caught on because it's so much easier to find purple things than it was 3 years ago. I have a purple purse with a big silver buckle on it that I adore!

  5. I'm an orange lover. Everyone thinks I'm weird for that one. But I really love a clay tone of orange, warm and muted. Especially next to slate blue.

    And I love those Target chairs.
