Come on, Barbie, let’s go party! (Or ride bikes?)

Pink glittery helmet

I’ve written before about owning the femmiest bike helmet on the planet.

The femmiest bike helmet ever

I had a fun bike ride home from work this week. First, fun because I took the long way through the beautiful Arboretum. Second, fun because three different women commented on my helmet saying how much they liked it. Two of them yelled praise from car windows.

Leave a little sparkle wherever you go

I got home and told the story on Facebook, speculating that the Barbie movie was responsible.

My friend Alison commented, “It’s a Barbie moment in history. All the people who like pink and glitter and fun girly clothing are just going for it right now. It’s Barbie’s world, we are just living in it. 💖💃”

Another friend, Connie, added, “It’s like the Barbie movie allowed women to suddenly support and hype each other. I’m here for it! 💖”

Wait until they see me wearing the pink helmet while riding my pink bike!
