I freely admit to being a marketers dream when it comes to certain things, Leopard print for example or anything shiny á lá a beady eyed magpie but one thing that draws me to a product, probably more than any of the rest is cherries. Any semblance of cherry in the name, colour or design and I'm sold. Unsurprisingly that's a lot to do with my name, CherrySue, it's not my given name but it goes some way to demonstrating my grá for these heart shaped cherry red fruits.
Allow me to show you one or two examples if you will, it's by no means my entire collection but is a glimpse at some of the products that I couldn't pass due to this affliction.
|Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry - €19|
|Sally Hansen - Cherry, Cherry, Bang, Bang - €8.95|
|Batiste Fruity & Cheeky Cherry Dry Shampoo|
|FitFlop Hot Cherry Ballet Dué - €99.95|
Finally, the newest release from FitFlop has me all a flutter, you read that right, a FitFlop has me excited. It could be my want for comfortable work shoes (I'm older than my years) or, the more likely explanation, it's the hot cherry red colour that's calling my name. Loudly.
As I said, that's just a glimpse at my worrying obsesh, of course there's jewellery, shoes, purses and key rings adorned with cherries in my ownership but we'd be here all day were I to list the lot.
Tell me this isn't just me, do you have a colour or recurring theme that you're inexplicably drawn to?
