As most of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s that time of year again when people start wearing their pink and promoting awareness for the disease and support survivors. Many companies and organizations focus some of their marketing efforts on specific causes or philanthropies that they support. Breast Cancer Awareness happens to be one cause that has shown tremendous support and growth in recent years.
At Pinnacle we have continued to grow our line of pink promotional products to cater to this need.

Look, I’m just going to go ahead and say it…
I’m really glad the Olympics are over.
Yes I know it’s only once every four years and that it is, supposedly, a spectacular display of athletics, dedication, and various precious metals, but man am I glad I won’t have to deal with this for another 4 years. I found myself overwhelmed with dives, jumps, spins, kicks, tears, victories and new memes. And, apparantly, I wasn’t the only one.
With the same fervent intensity and worldwide interest that followed the Royal Wedding (on which we did a great series of posts about, check them out here), London has become slightly difficult to move around in for the everyday folk, and the British are using their famously composed snark to make a not so subtle statement.
In the spirit of the Royal Wedding Sick Bags, I present to you the Sick of Olympics Tote Bags.

After reading, The Fastest Growing and Dying Industries in America, 2012 Edition I was surprised to see that Pilates and Yoga Studios are one of the fastest growing industries in America according to a report from IBISWorld. I guess I wasn’t too surprised because I see yoga studios all over town and I am constantly receiving Groupon and other daily deal emails featuring them. I have been bitten by the yoga bug and have started taking classes so I have seen what all the buzz is about. With two kids and a busy schedule I don’t get there as much as I want, but when I do get to class I find it works out my body and mind. I leave feeling refreshed and empowered.
With the rapid growth in this industry, Yoga and Pilates studios need to promote themselves to stand out from the competition. Here is my list of 5 Yoga Promotional Items to Brand Your Studio.
A yoga mat is essential for class, why not offer a yoga mat and carrying case with your studio name and logo. Perfect gift with purchase for new members.

So in short, I love this commercial.
How fun is this and what a great idea? Pick up a custom tee shirt for each state you visit. Or better yet, how about each city? Alright, alright. Not trying to get wild and crazy. But I am a fan. Not endorsing the car. I can’t vouch for that one. Although I did have a Civic once that we ran into the ground… But I digress.

I use Pinterest both personally and professionally. Personally, it’s a little easier; I mostly pin recipes, home improvement ideas, sometimes workouts. But it’s never anything I personally wrote or created. Instead, I use it a virtual bulletin board. It’s a place where I can save my bookmarks visually for easy and aesthetically appealing access.

Today is a special holiday. A special holiday if you are a dog, that is. You didn’t know? Today, February 23rd, is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. If you’re a dog, chances are, this holiday is the highlight of your year. (Also, if you’re a dog and you’re reading this blog post, chances are you’re pretty much destined for greatness.)

We all know that trends repeat themselves. Bell-bottoms (aka flared jeans) and scarves that were popular in the 1960s are showing up on the store racks today. And I’m sure you remember leggings and skinny jeans as something we all wore just as much in the 1980s as today.
But, and this is just my personal prediction, what’s next is a 90s resurrection. Perhaps I’ve been watching too much Portlandia, but I really think it’s inevitable. I was with some friends over the weekend and we were talking about our favorite 90s products.

Without fail, every time I put on my bathrobe, I let out a sigh of contentment. The cozy, safe feeling that comes along with settling into a roomy robe has to be universal- male, female, young, old; everyone should have the luxury of owning at least one robe.
Allow me to introduce you to the His and Hers Bathrobe.

Every family seems to have at least one member (voluntarily or possibly involuntarily!) who becomes the designated photographer at all family gatherings. In my family, my sister has become our so-called, “paparazzo,” capturing our memories on camera, no matter how embarrassing/hilarious/unflattering they may be. While we complain about the incessant “clicking” and “whirring” of her fancy camera, we all enjoy reminiscing about past events by displaying her amazing prints in promotional photo albums long after the real-life moments have passed.
Last week, Pinnacle’s wonderful Office Manager, Leighann, shared a post from one of her favorite photography blogs with me. The blog is called, “Clickin Moms,” and, according to its home page, it hosts a community of greater than 8,000 followers. Most of its members (about 65%) are professional photographers, while a smaller percentage are either “aspiring professionals” or “passionate hobbyists.”
