I had a friend years ago who would do that. Her "favorite color" changed to whatever it was that I was getting. We would go to the mall and find a great deal on something. She would wait for me to select whatever it was and then she would pick the same one. I finally told her that she could get it, but I was tired of looking like I was carrying around a "My Twin Doll" everywhere I went. She would always say, "Oh this is my FAVORITE color!" That's interesting. Just yesterday your favorite color was purple and today it is blue!

If you like here otherwise I would say something. I'd just tell her how frustrating it is that she always seems to be copying you and that you feel she would be happier discovering what she really likes rather than copying what you like. And I'd never let her guilt me into buying something less than what I wanted origionally.
