When a new closeout store opened in my neighborhood a few months back, I suspected it would provide an excellent source for finding this site’s weekly Pink Thing of the Day, and I was, of course, correct. This 4-item Pink Fantasy fragrance and body care collection, which smells like ‘pink fantasy’ I suppose, was on sale for just $6.99! Considering it is a limited edition, I’d say that is quite a bargain!

If you’ve walked into a Day Spa, a New Age book shop, or Asian Imports store, you might associate the memory with the calming aroma of essential oils.

You will be by the time you’re about 20 minutes into Stink! Continue reading Movie Review: Stink!
The packaging design of this fragrant body spray is almost too pink to resist, especially when you add the fluorescent, multi-colored lip prints. Even the fragrance name, “Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy” sounds almost edible. And I guess that is what good advertising is all about: compelling you to purchase a product based solely on how it looks on the shelf. Oh, the Pinkness.
