Barbie, Barbiecore, pink fashion, recipes and more on weekend meanderings.
Good morning friends, happy Saturday! It’s time for weekend meandering with Kim and Juliet, our weekly series where we share all of the things that piqued our interest and caught our eye over the past week.
It’s hot. I feel like a broken record but it is hot and I am hot. What is it like by you? Are you enjoying the heat or tired of it like me?
One of the greats, Tony Bennet passed yesterday at 96. I have always been a fan and enjoyed him even more over the last few years when he collaborated with Lady Gaga. He suffered from Alzheimers the last 7 years but never gave up performing and even played the piano a few days before he passed.
Today on weekend meandering it is all about Barbie, pink and Barbiecore, I’ve even found a few pink recipes that you might want to try. I realize we have been bombarded lately with all things Barbie but soon it will all be over and we will be back to reality.
Grab a coffee, tea or chocolate and let’s get to it.
Barbie & Barbiecore
As a girl I had a few Barbies and I enjoyed playing with them but what I loved most was the fancy dresses and shoes all things I clearly did not have in my wardrobe. My sisters and I played with them for hours and when we weren’t doing that we would pour over the Sears and JCPenny catalog to see looks at the Dream House and car.
Barbie and Barbiecore have been on the news and radar for over a year. Pops of pink have been popping up everywhere, in our home, wardrobe and even food. In fact while they were filming the movie there was apparently a world wide shortage of pink paint.
The long touted movie opened yesterday, did you go see it? To be honest, while I loved Barbie as a girl I don’t see the appeal as a 56 year old. I do not have plans to see the movie any time soon. Oppenheimer is more my speed. But never say never, so if you see it and recommend it let me know.

Pink Barbicore Fashion
Pink is a color that many either love or hate. I personally love it although I do not wear it a lot and when I do I prefer fuchsia pink. What about you? Do you love it or hate it?
