On June 27th the Pineapple Day is celebrated! Some things that come to my mind when thinking of pineapples are their sweet and tangy flavor, Piña Coladas and the tropics! So in honor of the Pineapple Day, I decided to find some cute pineapple themed products we all need in our lives and share my finds with you.
But first, some interesting facts about pineapples:
