Iconic TV Characters and What They Would Buy from Pinkly Perfect

topanga.pinkly.perfect

Although we’ve yet to spot any celebs wearing our beach-inspired fashion and accessories, we know they’d be perfect for some of our favorite TV icons. Below is our dream list of favorite female leads and the accessories that we know they’d love!

 

Betty Draper, Mad Men

Cape May, NJ Keychain

betty.draper

Betty Draper is oh-so relateable for her love of the Jersey shore, just like most all Pinkly Perfect fans! Her family has a history of getting off the parkway at exit zero, which is why our Cape May, NJ keychain would be perfect for her to grab on her way to summer vacation!

 

Olivia Pope, Scandal

BOSS Bracelet

Olivia.Pope

If anyone thinks there’s a bigger lady boss on television than Olivia Pope, then you’re straight up wrong. We know she’d rock her metallic gold BOSS bracelet all day and night, even when indulging in red wine and popcorn.

 

Cast of Gossip Girl

XOXO Bracelet

gossip.girl.cast

“Gossip girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattan’s elite. Who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell. You know you love me, xoxo, gossip girl” Enough said.

 

Tamera, Sister Sister

Newport Cosmetic Bag, Say No to Summer Reading

tamera.mowry

When Tamera wasn’t shouting “Go home Roger!”, she was pretty much doing anything other than schoolwork. We know she’d be all about saying no to summer reading and yes to movie dates with her hot BF Jordan.

 

Rory Gilmore, Gilmore Girls

Avalon Sweatshirt, Teal

Rory.Gilmore

The only people who love coffee more than I do is Rory and Lorelai. Our Avalon Sweatshirt in Teal is perfect for a comfy night in studying at Yale or working on her school’s newspaper.

 

Topanga Lawrence, Boy Meets World

Newport Cosmetic Bag, You’re Perfect

Topanga

Cory and Topanga’s relationship was #goals for any Boy Meets World fan. While they had their ups and downs like any high school sweethearts, we know Cory would have loved to gift his girl a Newport Cosmetic Bag in pink glitter “You’re Perfect.”

Pink Luggage Perfect for Holiday Travel

stylish.pink.luggage

Holiday season is (somehow) upon us! Whether you’re packing up your dorm to head home for a long break or simply sneaking away from the city to enjoy some turkey and pumpkin pie with your parents, a stylish and affordable luggage set is a must-have for holiday travel. And as always, don’t settle for anything less than pink!

 

Below are our picks:

 

CALPAK Ambeur 20-Inch Rolling Spinner Carry-On in Rose Gold

pinkly.perfect.luggage

$135 at Nordstrom

 

This lightweight carry-on in the prettiest rose gold features a sleek hard shell exterior and multi-directional spinner. Zippered divider on the inside for ideal organizing along with an integrated TSA lock makes this luggage perfect for keeping calm during a normally hectic ordeal. Owned and tested (and LOVED) IRL by yours truly!

 

TED BAKER LONDON Four-Wheel Suitcase

ted.baker.floral.pink.carryon

$398 at Nordstrom

 

If money’s less of a concern, take a peek at this beautiful floral suitcase from Ted Baker. Meeting most domestic and international carry-on size requirements, this 360-degree wheeler is both stunning and perfect for a winter weekend getaway. Also includes Ted Baker signature print interior lining and will certainly stand out from a busy airport crowd!

 

DVF Saluti 28” Hardside Spinner

DVF.Pink.Luggage

$139.97 at Nordstrom Rack

 

Have no fear, a deal is here! Originally $400, this DVF bright pink with tan accent 28” spinner is now for sale for $139.97. Featuring a two-way zip closure and interior mesh zip wall compartment with adjustable garment straps, this “beet” color suitcase will guarantee easy visibility and high style.

 

Regardless of what set you purchase (or put on your wish-list for Santa!), make sure you have a durable cosmetic bag to keep your holiday wardrobe free of makeup stains or shampoo spills while traveling through airport security. Not into an entirely pink luggage set? No problem! Pick up an eye catching luggage tag like this one from ban.dō for easy identification.

Summer Mode to Slay Mode: Pink Accessories Perfect for Girl Bosses

pink.accessories.for.girl.bosses

Is it just me or does everyone get a little slow moving (along with super bummed!) once summer ends? I know fall’s one of the best seasons for the beach (water is so warm in September!), but weekends at your favorite beach town are basically over and it’s harder and harder to justify a nightly ice cream cone. How are we supposed to be excited about that and be ready to jump right back into the routine of schoolwork and 5-day work weeks (or 7 if you’re a girl boss!). In order to go right from summer mode to slay mode, check out these must-haves to unleash the girl boss in you this off-season!

 

Personalized Stationery:

$2.60 each at minted.com

Pink.Personalized.Stationery
We (obviously) love the subtle palm tree addition to these pretty pink notecards! Get yours at minted.com.

No matter how many times you e-mail, insta DM, snap, or tweet your favorite people, there’s still nothing like receiving a hand written note in the mail. As a girl boss looking to make a serious impression and have her name be remembered, it is critical to get back into the habit of writing letters. After a meeting, a thank you note to a potential customer, when sending press sample, letter writing is perfect for so many occasions! Have a personalized (and pink) set on hand and make it part of your routine. Don’t forget pink stamps!

 

Business Card Holder:

$13.83 at Amazon

pink.leather.business.card.holder
A business card holder is a must-have this fall. Pick up a pink leather one at Amazon.com.

A true girl boss never misses an opportunity to network. Ever get asked for your business card and realize you’re not carrying any with you? Yeah, us too but never again with this pink leather business card holder. At only $13.83, it’s an absolutely necessary “don’t leave your house without” item because you never know when the best opportunity will come knocking at your door!

 

Easy to Find Keychain:

$18 at Pinkly Perfect

pinkly.perfect.happy.place.keychain
Is work your happy place? Maybe not. But this leather keychain will save you major time searching your purse for your keys!

Time is of the essence when you’re constantly jumping from one meeting to the next and even a couple minutes of searching for your keys can really disrupt your groove. To save time (and sanity), place your keys on an easy to find keychain, like Pinkly Perfect’s “Happy Place” in petal pink. Made in the USA, real leather, and only $18—perfect!

 

Small Notebook & Pen:

$10 from ban.do

ban.do.pink.notebook
Business on the top, party on the bottom?! We think so. Lovely notebook from ban.do.

In a world where you can do literally everything from your phone, taking meeting notes should not be one of those things. I get it—it’s super easy and then there’s no chance of losing information but from the other person’s perspective, it’s slightly rude. Think about it–there’s no way for anyone to know you’re taking notes or writing out your grocery list. Instead, buy a small notebook and pen that can fit in any of your purses and keep it on you for surprise meetings. We love the simplicity of ban.do’s pink 5” x 8” notebook. It’s only $10 and features an elastic band to keep any loose papers safe too!

Beach Bag Must Haves

beach.bag.accessories.perfect.for.summer

While summer may be “ending,” we at Pinkly Perfect genuinely believe the best beach days are ahead of us! There’s still two weeks left before LDW and September is the shore’s best kept secret. The beaches are quiet, the water is warm, and it’s not boiling hot anymore. If you’re planning on soaking up the sun as much as we are, make sure your beach bag is stocked with all the necessities to maximize your beach day. Check out our “beach bag must-haves” below!

Newport Cosmetic Bag

$20 at pinklyperfect.com

PinklyPerfectNewportBagSummerReminders

Maybe you’re more careful than I am but whenever I forgo a smaller bag and simply toss my valuables straight into my beach bag, they end up all sunscreen-sticky and full of sand. To prevent this mess and the chance of wondering if your phone’s still receiving texts, make sure you pack a Newport Cosmetic Bag to store all your important stuff.

 

Headphones

pink.headphones

The easiest way to avoid a beach tagger pestering you about where your beach tag is by pretending you’re asleep. Headphones are necessary for this strategy as you genuinely won’t be able to hear them ask you! Instead of splurging, pick up a pretty pink & printed pair for $16.99 at target.com.

 

Traceless Hair Tie

pink.creaseless.hairtie

Let’s face it. We love getting our natural summer highlights but we know how beach days really mess up our hair. If you’re hoping your blowout will last you all weekend, make sure you pack some invisibobble, the original traceless hair ring. Available in every color imaginable (we prefer pink!), this telephone cord shaped hair ring will evenly distribute pressure along the hair, thus preventing a hair crease, headache, and even split ends!

 

Spry Stronger Longer Chewing Gum

spry.chewing.bubblegum

If your summer diet includes endless iced coffees, ice cream cones, and frozen margaritas, you’re going to need some extra help keeping your teeth clean and healthy all summer long. Switch out your current gum of choice for Spry Stronger Longer Chewing Gum, available for $5.99 at xlear.com. Spry gum tastes amazing, eliminates bad breath (hello, lifeguards!), while also cleaning your teeth and preventing cavities. Perfect!

 

Sunblock

clear.face.sunscreen

Sun block is a beach girl’s best friend. While getting tan is certainly always a summer goal of ours, getting sunburn is definitely not. Prevent going back to school with blistering, peeling skin and reapply sunscreen every couple hours. Our pick is Neutrogena Clear Face Sunscreen, which will help prevent breakouts too!

July 4th Travel Must-Haves

july4travel

 

Summer is flying by! If you’ve been wanting to soak up some major sun, now is your chance. School’s out, summer ice cream scoopin’ money is flowing in, and all the red, white, and blue (and pink?!) decorations and party tips are officially taking over our Pinterest boards.

 

Whether you’re packing up the car and cruising down the parkway to your beach town of choice, or printing out a boarding pass to escape to a real tropical getaway with your favorite beach besties, make sure you take a peek at our travel must-haves.

Sturdy Carry-on/Beach Bag

$26 at pinklyperfect.com

PinklyPerfectBeachBrunchBesties

First thing you’ll need is a large carry-on that can hold your essentials for both the trip and the first day or two of vacation if you’re waiting on luggage. We love our Montauk Tote because it can be your carry-on and your beach bag. It’s large enough to fit your laptop, makeup bag, beach towel, book, and an outfit or two.

 

Pink Slip Sleep Mask

$45 at anthropologie.com

pink.sleep.mask

Beat that parkway traffic and head out late Friday night! Trade turns with your besties so each of you can sleep for a bit on the way down and be wide awake to hit the beach first thing in the morning! This sleep mask is perfect to get in the ZZzzone and also look super cute.

 

Stronger Longer Spry Bubble Gum

$27.48 for a 12 pack at xlear.com

pinkly.perfect.spry.gum.mints

After a long flight and hours of off-and-on sleep, make sure you have plenty of gum to freshen up before heading out! We are so obsessed with Spry Dental Defense Gum. It’s made with 100% Xylitol, natural ingredients, and has proven effects to improve oral health when used daily. No toothbrush in your carry-on? No problem! We love the classic bubble gum flavor, but try out their more creative flavors like green tea, fresh fruit, cinnamon, and licorice.

 

Xlear Natural Saline Nasal Spray

$6.99 at xlear.com

xclear.nasal.spray

If you tend to experience sinus pain while traveling, make sure you pack Xlear natural saline nasal spray. This spray offers fast relief to keep you beach bound all vacation long. And if you don’t like it (highly doubtful)? Return for a full refund! Perfect.

The Bracelet That Gives Back to Girls Inc.

pinkly.perfect.giveback.bracelet

When I first had the idea for Pinkly Perfect, I (like most socially conscious entrepreneurs) planned to incorporate some sort of element of giving back to people who needed help. I had high hopes of having a percentage of every sale benefit an organization that encouraged girls to embrace more leadership roles and confidence at an early age, something that I think is so needed and that I wish I had more of growing up.

 

Once I started with financial planning and examining just how much upfront cost is involved in launching a product line (hint: it is WAY more than you think!), the idea of budgeting for that seemed absolutely impossible.

 

So instead, I focused all of my energy on sales. Once our first birthday rolled around and I looked at my numbers, I realized there was a way to make a philanthropic element work, just maybe not in the way I originally wanted.

 

In honor of our 1st birthday month, Pinkly Perfect has launched her first ever give back item: our Seahorse Bracelet. The bracelet is real leather, made in the USA, and features our signature seahorse logo. It will be a constant item on our website and for every bracelet sold, we will donate 10% to Girls Inc., an organization that inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.

 

SeahorseBracelet

 

Shop your bracelet here and wear it knowing that it’s not just a reminder of summer vacation, but it’s also a way we’re giving back and creating a world with a space for more #girlbosses. Perfect!

PinklyPerfectLeggingsGift

Margate Leggings:

Give it with: Homemade caramel corn and a perfect girly movie. We suggest classics like He’s Just Not That Into You or When Harry Met Sally.

Give it with: Shriver’s Salt Water Taffy as a Jersey shore alternative to the typical Valentine’s Day candy and our Pinkly Perfect “Beach-Sickness” Card.

Look no further than our Dennis Greeting Card that reads “You Make Me Melt.” Our cards are made in the USA and left blank on the inside so you can jot down whatever message you like! Maybe play a joke on your bestie and sign it from the hottie lifeguard you were eyeing all last summer ;).

We Scream for Ice Cream: Pinkly’s Perfect for the Ice Cream Obsessed

pinkly.perfect.ice.cream.bracelet

No matter the freezing winter temperatures, any summer girl will still get the occasional (read: daily) ice cream craving. While we may not be able to throw on some flip-flops, hop on our beach cruisers, and go to the local ice cream parlor in our beach town of choice, we can make a little trip to the freezer section and indulge in our favorite store bought brands.

 

At Pinkly Perfect, we totally get the ice cream obsession, which is why we’re here to help. From affordable merchandise to creative blog articles, check out how we’re screaming for ice cream this winter.

 

Madison Bracelet, Ice Cream Cone ($24)

PinklyPerfect.IceCream.Cone.Bracelet

Our latest addition to the Madison Bracelet family is Pinkly Perfect’s Ice Cream Cone Bracelet in gold metallic leather and painted mint back. It’s made in the USA, and pairs perfectly with your zip code bracelets for a daily reminder of summer vacation. At $24, it’s also the perfect price for a gift for your ice cream-obsessed bestie.

 

Newport Cosmetic Bag, Reminders of Summer ($20)

PinklyPerfectNewportBagSummerReminders

Patches, patches, patches. We couldn’t go for this trend without incorporating the color pink and our favorite summer sweet! Our Newport Cosmetic Bag in “Reminders of Summer” perfectly sums up why we love this magical treat. Pick it up for $20 and bring it on your next vacation or slumber party.

 

Creative Spins on the Classic Ice Cream Sandwich Blog Article

the.baked.bear.ice.cream.sandwich

Sometimes it’s difficult to decide exactly how we’re craving ice cream. In a bowl, covered in rainbow sprinkles (always), in a cone, or our personal favorite—sandwiched between two warm, gooey cookies. Last year, we wrote a blog article on creative spins on the classic ice cream sandwich. Read it here and get inspired for your next homemade treat!
