pinklyperfect.maddy.sasso

We just celebrated our 2nd birthday on April 1st! (Where has the time gone?!)

In reflection and evaluation of the past year, we decided to put together a list of 10 surprising facts you may not know about Pinkly Perfect!

  1. Our product was featured on TV!
  2. We’re over 21! Yep, we did some research and realized the majority of our customers were over 21. So we started gearing our designs more towards them and less towards high schoolers. Peace, love, wine, anyone?
  3. Our summer sales increased by 144%.
  4. We added two new product lines: hats & embroidery patches—both of which are best sellers!
  5. We filled about a million reorders over the summer (maybe an exaggeration but it sure felt like it).
  6. PP CEO, Maddy Sasso visited three new beach towns: Charleston, SC, Bar Harbor, ME, and Portsmouth, NH.
  7. She also got a full-time executive assistant in the form of a furry, almost two year old dog named Louie. He may not help with the administrative duties but assists in break time, licking tears, and encouraging walks outside.
  8. We moved into our PA office, making Pinkly Perfect run much more efficiently.
  9. Our blog got sponsored and we conducted our first ad campaign across college campuses in Philadelphia.
  10. We have a new creative genius on board who doubles as PP CEO, Maddy Sasso’s fiancé. Some of your favorite PP sayings are his ideas! (Searching for a Porpoise, I’ve got your back…)

Have you been keeping up with the winter Olympics? This year’s Games are taking place in PyeongChang, South Korea, and so far we’ve seen amazing things from Team USA – especially from the girls! Below, we take a look at four female athletes who have already shown the world that sports aren’t just for boys anymore:

 

Mirai Nagasu, Figure Skater

Mirai made headlines earlier this month when she became the first American woman ever to land a triple axel in the Olympics. (Besides her, only two other Olympic athletes have ever successfully completed the same jump.) Watch Mirai’s stunning performance here or learn more about her by visiting her website here.

Favorite Color: Blue

Favorite TV Show: The Big Bang Theory

#goals: “My goal is to accept any challenge that life throws me and to become a better person from each experience. Sounds super cheesy, but it’s my honest opinion. I’m going to make mistakes and have success; I hope that under all circumstances, I can come away from everything as a role model and an inspiration.”

 

Chloe Kim, Snowboarder

Chloe, at 17, has been turning heads since she arrived at the Olympics earlier this winter. However, after winning the women’s halfpipe gold, she really caught everyone’s attention. She was also the first woman to land consecutive 1080s in the halfpipe at the Olympics. Watch Chloe’s record-breaking run here or follow her on Twitter here!

 

Lindsey Vonn, Skier

 You’ve probably heard of Lindsey Vonn before – if not at this Olympics, then during one of her other three (2002, 2006, and 2010!). Among her many, many achievements, Lindsey holds the American record for most world cup victories and is ranked second in the world. You can buy her book, Strong is the New Beautiful, here, or follow her on Twitter or Instagram!

Our Fave Three Things About Lindsey:

  1. Her ideal day off is our ideal day off. “I’d sit on my couch with a large container of froyo with my dogs, and I would watch Law and Order marathons all day long in my pajamas—a onesie.”
  2. Her dogs have an Instagram! Follow them @vonndogs.
  3. Her Under Armour collection. Adorable, practical, and so chic!

 

Becca Hamilton, Curler

Becca, who was named USA Curling’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2017, is one half of the U.S. curling team. The other half? Her brother, Matt! The pair are slowly but surely working their way through all of the curling challenges PyeongChang has to offer, and we can’t wait to watch them the rest of the way! You can find Becca on Twitter and Instagram – and welcome to the #HamFam!
