Welcome to August! It’s a new month, so it’s time for a new flavor. I’ll give you a hint: this flavor is tropical and trendy. It has a prominent place in fashion and home goods right now, which means it’s also popular in weddings and other events. You can find it on everything from clothing to accessories, and mixed (or baked) into appetizers, cocktails, and of course, desserts.

I’m talking about Pineapples, those symbols of Southern hospitality which have long welcomed people to homes and tables. In keeping with this symbolism, I welcome you to enjoy some of my favorite pineapple finds. (I’m adding even more at my Pineapple Pinterest board, so come on over and follow along.) Keep reading for details about this month’s balm, too—and how it’s easier than ever to add one to your next order!


Luau or beach party, bridal shower or kids birthday–Pineapples make a cute theme for any party. It’s easy to get in the mood for planning when you kick back in your pineapple socks. Make sure to include plenty of cake pops, and a pinata for the kids (see how easy it is to make your own!). And pick up all your last-minute party supplies in your Kate Spade Wing it pineapple tote. (OK, so this is just my personal dream, but isn’t it cute?)

pineapple lip balms

Even an adult beverage will taste more festive when you share it in these pineapple sippers. You’re never too old for pineapple popsicles—or our lip balms (see below for more details). And these fruity shades will keep the party going.

flavorofmonthaug2015As I’m sure you’ve guessed, August’s Flavor of the Month is Pineapple. This flavor adds a tropical twist to so many of our lip balms (Pina Colada, Pink Flirtini, and Babylove to name a few), I can’t believe we’ve never made a perfectly plain pineapple balm. It’s about time!

This juicy, tart lip balm is available all month at 15% off. If you’re a newsletter subscriber, don’t forget to request your free Flavor of the Month when you place your order. We’ve added back the button at checkout to make it even easier to add. Just after you add your address information, you’ll see the option to check the box that says, “Yes! I’m a newsletter subscriber (or would like to be). Add a free Flavor of the Month lip balm to my order.” That’s it!

What’s your favorite find? I’ll admit, some of these might not be very practical (I’m talking to you, cute Kate Spade tote), but I think most would make a fun addition to a beach party shower or kids’ birthday. What do you think?
