If you like Piña Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape
I’m the love that you’ve looked for, come with me, and escape
~ Rupert Holmes, Escape (The Piña Colada Song)
The minute I walked into the new The Body Shop store at KLCC (new concept store, first in Malaysia and only 2nd in Asia, after Japan!) and clapped my eyes on the new, limited edition Piñita Colada bath and body collection, I couldn’t stop humming the song. You know that song right? The aptly named Piña Colada song! If you saw me and didn’t notice me humming, not to worry, I was. In my head.
As much as I enjoy the jaunty, catchy tune and lyrics, and as lovely as it was to sip on piña colada on a hot afternoon, I’m actually not a fan of piña colada! LOL! If you’re unfamiliar, the piña colada drink is made of coconut cream, rum and pineapple juice and it’s very sweet. A very girlie drink – a drink you want to have in hand as you sit in a beach hut, facing the blue ocean, feeling the warm sea breeze blow through your hair.
As you can expect therefore, this is what the Piñita Colada collection evokes – Sea, sand, sun, cold drinks and hot sandy bodies… and sunscreen! 😀
