Cargo Cosmetics – “The Big Easy” Powder Blush

POPSUGAR sneak peeked this blush in one of their emails earlier this month.  I was pretty pleased when I saw it in my inbox!

IMG_2597

“The Big Easy” is a natural, peachy pink color.  It’s perfect for my everyday makeup routine!

The blush is very soft, so I have to be careful when I use it that I don’t loosen too much and make a mess!  I’ve spilled makeup powder on myself more times than I would like, and try to avoid it as much as I can!

Cookie Pop Popcorn – Cookies & Cream

As you know, I always look forward to the snack that POPSUGAR includes each month!

This month’s snack did not disappoint! Cookie Pop is sweet without being too sweet, which can happen with some flavored popcorns!

Along with the yummy taste, I’m also quite pleased with the size of this bag!  It’s full size!  That’s a lot of popcorn!! 🙂

Unplugged – Dusti Screen Cleaner

These little, screen cleaners are quite cute!  The idea is that they stick to your phone case and you can remove them and clean your screen at any time.

I don’t like to stick things on my phone, so I’ll be using these for my laptop instead!  I just cleaned my laptop screen with the raindrop one, and am pleased and grossed out by how much dirt it collected!  EW!

IMG_2609

Baggu – Duck Bag

I love bags!  I purchase and receive entirely too many, but I’m not complaining!

This duck bag is large and versatile.  I can see myself using it quite often!  Unfortunately, this leopard print is not my style!  I wish I’d received one of the other pattern options instead.

I’ve done some research and found a “Swaps” board on one of my favorite subscription box blogs! I found someone who wants the leopard print and will trade me for a navy stripe pattern!  I’m waiting to be accepted to the “Swaps” board, and then I’ll hopefully get the navy stripe pattern I want.  I will get much more use out of the navy than I will the leopard!

IMG_2591

Triple C – PowerGloss in Silver

I’ve always been interested in portable phone chargers, so I was very happy when I saw this charger in my box!

The charger is intended to look like makeup.  They designers certianly succeeded with that!  I really thought this was a lipstick or nail polish when I opened the box!

The one negative is that the little cord it comes with does not fit iPhones.  I find that to be quite odd considering the popularity of Apple products! Oh well! I can plug my own charging cord into the device!

IMG_2601

Christian Lacroix Paris – Paseo Sticky Note Folio

I absolutely love sticky notes and cute notepads!  I have acquired quite the collection over the years!

IMG_2602

The ombre pattern makes these sticky notes super fun!

I also really like the little book aspect!  I can easily take these sticky notes with me and use whatever color I’m feeling at the moment!

IMG_2577

The August box has a total retail value of $104.98!  That’s a little less than the usual total value, but it’s still great for a $40 box!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the August box?

As I (somewhat) promised last week, I made a couple of horizontal kits for this batch of new releases!  I’ve played around with both of these new, horizontal kits and am beginning to find an appreciation for the horizontal ECLP! 🙂

First up, is my Sandy Shores printable now formatted for the Horizontal Planner!

IMG_2353

Here’s a mock spread I made up to show you how I would use this kit in my planner!

The second horizontal kit being released is Berry Bliss!  This kit is perfect for September!  The purples and pinks go wonderfully with the color scheme in the ECLP!

Here’s another mock spread!

PBTT Berry Bliss Sticker Kit Two Pages

Last but not least, I have Berry Bliss in a vertical kit!

I think this kit is one of my favorites so far!  I just love the flowers and the green accents!  So pretty! 🙂

New Releases: Beach and School Themed Sticker Printables

Hello everyone!

I have two new printable releases to share with you today!

PBTT Sandy Shores Sticker Kit Two Page

The first release is this Sandy Shores beach themed kit.

I’m going on vacation next week, so I’ve made a beach themed kit for my trip!  I figured a few of you might enjoy it too, so I’ve decided to list it in the shop!

The golden tones in this kit match the August colors really well, but they will also compliment many other months in the vertical ECLP.

PBTT School Reminders Sticker Sheet

My second release for the week is this functional sheet of school reminders!

There are three pencil options:

  • Class
  • Lecture
  • Blank

There are six mini notebook page options:

  • Exam
  • Quiz
  • Study
  • Paper Due
  • Homework
  • Reading

IMG_2161

Here are a few of the school reminders in my planner.  This photo gives you a much better idea of the sizing!

I used pencil stickers like these all last year in my planner and absolutely LOVED them!!

I’ll have more new releases next week!  Those releases will include a few more functional sheets and some September kits!  I’m hoping to have some horizontal kits next week, but I don’t want to make any promises!  I have a lot of work to do between now and then, and I’ll be on vacation!

August Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello, Planner Friends!

As promised in last week’s post, I have a monthly functional printable to share with you today!

PBTT August Functional Sticker Sheet

I really love the golden yellows of August in the vertical Erin Condren LifePlanner.  They’re quite pretty!

If you follow me on Instagram (which you definitely should!), you might’ve noticed the fun, scalloped boxes and reminder circles I’ve been using!  I designed them a little while ago, and have absolutely LOVED using them!  I think the circles are my favorite!

Before I give you the file, there are a few things I’d like to say.  I spent a lot of time designing and creating this printable, so please be kind when you use it.

  • Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes printables are for personal use only
  • You may not re-sell, re-distribute, or claim this work as your own
  • If you post this on the internet, please give the credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes and link it back to my blog (pinkbowstwinkletoes.com)

Enough of the heavy stuff! Now it’s time for the stickers!

I’m providing you this printable in both a PNG and PDF file format. I’ve found that the PNG prints richer colors than the PDF. It’s up to you which file you use though!

To download the PNG file:

  1. Click on the image above
  2. Click “view full size”
  3. Right click and save image
  4. Open saved file and print
  5. PLAN!!

If you skip step 2 and don’t click the “view full size” button, the image will save in a much smaller format and will print incorrectly.

You can download the PDF file here, PBTT August Functional Sticker Sheet 2016.

Be sure to tag me in any and all Instagram posts featuring my stickers and your planner! (@pinkbowstwinkletoes and #pinkbowstwinkletoes)  I would love to see what you do with them! :)

Happy Planning!

Exciting Printable News!

Hello Planner Friends!

I mentioned in last week’s post that exciting things were coming for Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes!  Well the time has come for me to announce my big news!

PBTT Logo on Etsy

Yes, you read that right!  Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes is now on Etsy!

I have been working really hard for the last few months to create some new, larger printable kits and get my shop up and running!

You’re probably wondering what kind of items I’ll be selling in my new shop.  To start, I will be selling both decorative and functional printable kits.  These printables will be larger and more detailed than the free printables I’ve been offering on the blog for the last six months.  Once I see how the printables are selling, I want to start making and selling printed stickers! That’s the goal anyway!

I know many of you are probably worried that my free printables will disappear now that I have opened a shop. Do not worry!  All printables that are currently on the blog will stay there, and I will continue to release a couple of free printables each month.  These free printables will be along the lines of monthly colors and seasonal items!

I currently have nine, two-page kits and three multicolored functional listings in the shop that I will give you a preview of down below.  In the next month or so, I hope to start making horizontal printables (I may or may not have purchased a horizontal Erin Condren!), along with monthly view printables!

I’m very excited for this new Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes adventure, and I hope that you are too!

Now on to the printable preview!!

I think these three would look the best with the August colors in the vertical Erin Condren LifePlanner.  From left to right they are:

These three are quite bright and cheerful!  From left to right they are:

Last but not least, there are these three kits!  From left to right they are:

Under the Sea may look familiar to those of you that follow me on Instagram (@pinkbowstwinkletoes).  It’s the kit I used in my planner last week!

IMG_1828

I used a few other stickers in my Under the Sea spread, but the majority are from the kit!

One thing I love about printables is that you can print them out multiple times!  I printed out the Under the Sea kit twice for this spread. I wanted a few more checklists and such!

These are the three functional sheets I have listed!  They come in a variety of colors with scalloped edges.  From left to right they are:

Some of my favorite stickers are scalloped, so I decided to make some for you all to enjoy!

These releases are just the beginning for the Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes Printable Shop!  I’m aiming to have September colored items along with more functional sheets ready to release the last week of August.

For the next few days, I’ll be having a grand opening sale!  Use the coupon code “OpeningWeekend” to receive 25% your order of $10 or more!  The coupon code will expire on Sunday, August 7th at 11:59 p.m.  If you miss out on this sale, don’t worry!  I have an exclusive coupon code for all of my blog followers.  That code is “BlogBonus”

I want to thank you all for supporting my printable journey thus far and look forward to where this little adventure will take us!

Happy Shopping and Happy Planning!
