POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017

Hello, hello!

August isn’t QUITE over yet, so I have just enough time to sneak in my POPSUGAR Must Have review for the month!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR celebrated their 5th anniversary this month, so this box is special to them and has a slightly celebratory theme!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box contents:

  • Pastel – Cheers Lacquered Tray
  • First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask
  • Dogeared – Friendship Bracelet with Small Open Heart
  • Meri Meri – Gold Glitter Candles
  • Fringe Studio – Free Spirit Journal
  • Goodie Girl Cookies – Chocolate Chunk
  • Shoptiques.com – $25 Gift Card

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Pastel – Cheers Lacquered Tray – Retail Value $28

How adorable is this tray?! It reminds me a little of Kate Spade. I can see it on the classiest of bar carts or at a New Year’s Eve party!

I don’t know how I’m going to use this tray yet, but I know I will! It’s way too cute to go unused!! ❤

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask – Retail Value $38

I’m always a little wary of face masks because of my sensitive skin. Surprisingly enough, this mask agrees with me! So far I’ve used it once and plan on using it again tonight!

The instructions say the mask can be used up to three times a week. Just to be on the safe side, I’m only going to use it one or two.

The mask is way thicker than I expected it to be. The gel texture is nice though. Very refreshing! It also has a slightly tingly sensation to it that I quite enjoy!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Dogeared – Friendship Bracelet with Small Open Heart – Retail Value $34

This little bracelet is just darling. I don’t wear this type of jewelry too often though, so I’m going to save this cutie to give as a gift!

I’ve given POPSUGAR items as gifts in the past, and my friends always LOVE them!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Meri Meri – Gold Glitter Candles – Retail Value $7.50

I think these might just be the prettiest birthday candles I’ve ever seen!

I turn 24 this year and these beauties are definitely going to be on top of my cake!! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Fringe Studio – Free Spirit Journal – Retail Value $16

If you know much about me, then you know that I love a good notebook! I have an extensive collection of May Designs and Rifle Paper Co. notebooks on my shelf right now! I am more than happy to add this rose gold beauty to the bunch!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Look at the gorgeous rose gold pages! ❤

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Goodie Girl Cookies – Chocolate Chunk – Retail Value $2.95

You all know how much I love a good snack!

I devoured these bad boys (all eight of them) during the Game of Thrones series finale! I dipped them in some milk and went to town while rooting for Dany and Jon! 😉

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Shoptiques.com – $25 Gift Card

I don’t typically use the gift cards that come in my POPSUGAR box. However, this month I actually am! Shoptiques is a website that sells merchandise from thousands of boutiques across thousands of cities.

Right now, I have a Lilly Pulitzer tumbler and some wooden cutlery in my cart. I’ll be pulling the trigger on that purchase as soon as I finish this blog post!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The total retail value of the August box is $151.45. That’s not too shabby at all!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the August box?

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello, everyone!

How is it that another month of 2017 has already gone by? It’ll be 2018 before we know it! Geez!!

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

I went with a slightly more vibrant purple palette for this month’s freebie! It coordinates quite nicely if I do say so myself! 🙂

I’ve been making functional printables for over a year now, so if you’re interested, here’s the freebie from last year, September Functional Planner Stickers 2016! The 2016 and 2017 theme colors are exactly the same, so if you want to use the printables together, they match perfectly.

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Before I give you the sticker freebie 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 (www.pinkbowstwinkletoes.com)

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

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 version here, PBTT September Functional Sticker Sheet 2017.

Don’t forget to tag me in any and all Instagram posts featuring my printables! (@pinkbowstwinkletoes and #pinkbowstwinkletoes)  I would love to see how you’re using them! :)

I’ll be back in about a month with another functional freebie!

Until then, Happy Planning!

Personal Size, Weekly To-Do Insert: Free Planner Printable

Hello, Planner Girls!

It’s my favorite day of the week! What could be better than Printable Release Day?! Nothing! Nothing is better than a new printable freebie! 🙂

My A5 printable freebies have seen such a positive response that I’ve been making similar versions in the personal size. So continuing on that theme, I have the weekly to-do
insert to share with you all today!

Personal Size, Weekly To-Do Insert: Free Planner Printable

There’s room on the insert for your favorite quote or weekly inspiration, along with a spot for all of your weekly to-dos. My weekly to-dos often vary from my daily ones, so I like to have separate lists for both sets of tasks.

Personal Size, Weekly To-Do Insert: Free Planner Printable

All my printable inserts come with crop marks for easy cutting! For tips and tricks on trimming these down, check out this post.

Just like with all my other printables, this to-do list printable is for personal use only.  You may not re-sell, re-distribute, or claim this work as your own.

When posting on the Internet, please give credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes. Feel free to tag me (@pinkbowstwinkletoes) on Instagram or Facebook when posting my printables! I love seeing my printables in the wild! 🙂

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017

Hello, hello!

It’s always an exciting day when my PLAY! By Sephora box arrives! I do my best to avoid any and all spoilers each month. I love for my PLAY! and POPSUGAR boxes to be complete surprises! 🙂

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The August 2017 box revolves around the Elements of Beauty.

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

This month’s PLAY!BOOK has an adorable periodic table of all the different ingredients that can be found in beauty products. It lists the ingredient, in which product(s) it can be found, and what it’s best for.  How neat is that? I’ve learned a lot from looking at this little table!

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box Contents:

  • beautyblender – beautyblender micro mini
  • Clinique – HIM Dual-Ended High Impact Mascara & Primer Duo
  • Hourglass – Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick in Shell
  • Korres – Golden Krokus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum
  • Alterna Haircare – CAVIAR – Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist
  • Burberry – My Burberry Black
  • Drawstring bag

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

beautyblender – beautyblender micro mini

Beautyblenders are the best! I’ve been using the full-size one for years and love the way it applies my foundation. I was so excited when I pulled this little, cutie out of my bag!

Once you add water, the blender grows quite a bit. It’s still pretty tiny though so gripping it while applying your concealer is a little awkward! I’ll still be using it though. 🙂

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Clinique – HIM Dual-Ended High Impact Mascara & Primer Duo

I’ve been using Clinique makeup for years. It’s actually the first real makeup I ever used! I have sensitive skin (as I’m sure you know by now!), so all their products work really well for me!

I haven’t used a mascara+primer product in years, so I wasn’t really sure about this product. Surprisingly (at least to me), I LOVE it!! The primer goes on really nicely and my lashes are long and soft after it’s all said and done. I will definitely be using this duo until the bitter end!

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hourglass – Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick in Shell

I’ve never used a stick foundation before, so I was quite intrigued when I pulled this out of my bag.

At first, I was concerned that the shade might be too dark, but I actually think it works well on me. I don’t, however, like how much product you have to use to cover your face.  I applied the foundation two times and still felt like I needed a little more for the right amount of coverage.

I think what I’m going to do is save this foundation to use as a concealer when I have a particularly stubborn blemish!

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Korres – Golden Krokus Ageless Saffron Elixir Serum

I LOVE a good anti-wrinkle product, so I’m always pleased when I get them in my subscription boxes. Unfortunately, this serum isn’t for me.  After one use, my face broke out in lots and lots of places. Yikes!!

Because of that, I will have to find another home for this guy!

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Alterna Haircare – CAVIAR – Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist

I’m a big fan of Alterna hair products. I’ve been using their leave-in conditioner for many, many years now. I also love their heat protecting spray.

This product is for blow-dried hair (which I never do), so I gave it to my mom to test out. She likes it a lot! She has thin hair, so she often worries about the weight of the hair products she’s using.  This spray is very light, so it works really well for her. Also, it smells wonderful! 🙂

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Burberry – My Burberry Black

If you’ve read any of my PLAY! reviews before, then you know I’m not big on fragrances. So there’s nothing new on the perfume front this month!

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The August bag is quirky and cute! I’m a glasses-wearer, so I appreciate the red specs! 🙂

PLAY! By Sephora Review: August 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

August was a so-so month for me. I will gets lots of use out of the mascara and the beautyblender, but not so much out of the other products. That’s okay though. You can’t win them all!

Do you subscribe to PLAY! By Sephora?!

What do you think of your August box?

This week, I have a personal size notes insert to share with you all! I jot things down all the time and love making paper lists, so I figured it was about time I released a notes page for personal planners

Personal Size Weekly Insert: Free Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Personal Size Weekly Insert: Free Planner Printable

Hello, hello!

I hope you all are doing well and have been super productive (or just moderately productive) this last week! I’ve been a busy, little bee working on all sorts of projects the last few weeks! I keep adding more to the list too! Enough about me though, let’s get to the reason why you’re here! FREE PRINTABLES!! 🙂

Personal Size Weekly Insert: Free Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

This insert is formatted to perfectly fit personal size planners (Medium Kikki.K Planners too!)

This weekly insert is undated, so you can use it anytime you’d like! I use a combination of dated and undated inserts. I think that printable inserts are MUCH easier to keep up with when they’re undated. That’s just my opinion though! 🙂
