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

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: December 2017

Hello, Hello!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season! I can’t believe that New Year’s Eve will be here in just a few days! November and December always seem to fly right by!

Out of the 12 POPSUGAR boxes I receive each year, December is one of the ones I look forward to the most! What with Christmas and celebrations galore during the month, this box just always seems to be one of the best each year! It always comes with the best giftables and a few splurge items for yourself!

  • Tilo – Twilight Scarf
  • Lalicious – Extraordinary whipped Sugar Scrub – Sugar Kiss
  • Chloe + Isabel – Pavé Bar Long Pendant Necklace
  • Wild Ophelia – Sugar Cookie Chocolate Bar

Tilo – Twilight Scarf – Retail Value $98

It’s finally (kinda) (almost) (maybe) scarf season in Florida! I think this scarf would be adorable paired with a white shirt, jeans, and booties!

The tiny sequins embedded throughout are a great addition! They take a plain, gray scarf and transform it into something more!

Lalicious – Extraordinary whipped Sugar Scrub – Sugar Kiss – Retail Value $35

I love a good sugar scrub! I received a different scrub in one of my very first POPSUGAR boxes years ago! I finished that one off earlier this year, so I’m happy to have a new one!

Sugar Kiss is a very sweet scent. The name is quite fitting! I don’t usually go for the sweeter fragrances, but I like this one!

Chloe + Isabel – Pavé Bar Long Pendant Necklace – Retail Value $42

POPSUGAR sneak peeked this necklace to subscribers last month and allowed us to choose between gold and silver. I love having options, so I was very pleased when they offered us a choice! Clearly, I chose gold!

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to wear this necklace myself or save it for a gift! I’m leaning more towards a gift though!

Wild Ophelia – Sugar Cookie Chocolate Bar – Retail Value $2.99

You know how I feel about snacks! This month’s chocolate bar intrigued me quite a bit! It’s milk chocolate with sugar cookie and toffee bits inside.

For some reason, I was expecting the chocolate bar to be white. I guess because of the packaging (which is absolutely gorgeous! A++) and the fact that sugar cookies are involved. I was wrong. This chocolate is indeed brown! LOL!

BaubleBar – Sugar and Spice Coaster Set – Retail Value $38

These coasters are so jazzy! All the glitz and shimmer!!

I have a friend that would absolutely love them! I’m thinking of saving these to give her for her birthday next year.

Ashkahn – For You Gift Tags – Retail Value $12

When I wrapped my Christmas gifts, I completely forgot to use these tags! They’re adorable, so I know they would’ve been a great addition to my packages!

Since they’re not holiday specific, I think I’m going to incorporate these into a few birthday gifts throughout the year!

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

Pier 1 Imports – Cocktail Filled Candle – Moscow Mule – Retail Value $14.95

Over the last year, I’ve amassed quite the candle collection! I used to love lighting candles in my college apartment and can’t wait to do so again soon!

This Moscow Mule scent is fresh and delightful! It’s very light and the packaging is gorgeous! That rose gold lid!! 🙂

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

The total retail value of this month’s box is $242.94. That is incredible! I can’t remember the last time a box had this high of a value!

As usual, the December box did not disappoint! My favorite item this month is the Lalicious sugar scrub! I have a feeling that my tub of scrub will be empty before I know it!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the December box?

2018 Goal Planning Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

2018 Goal Planning Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable

Hello, Planners!!

The New Year is quickly approaching, so I figured it was time to release my 2018-specific planning insert!

2018 Goal Planning Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Like millions of other people, I enjoy setting goals for myself every year! In 2017, I set some goals in January and then set some more for myself closer to summertime. I didn’t accomplish all my goals this year, but I accomplished enough!

As you can see, there’s enough room for 10 goals on this insert. Some people are more detailed than others, so I gave y’all two lines for each goal. If you don’t need that much space, you can always use those extra lines for brainstorming ways to accomplish your goals or something else like that!

At the bottom, I included a little motivational phrase! 2018 WILL be your year!

Easy DIY: Felt Ball Wreath Ornaments

Hello, Crafters!

I’m back again this week with another easy + fun crafting tutorial!

Easy DIY: Felt Ball Wreath Ornaments - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

This week’s wreath project combines a bit of last week’s Easy DIY Velvet Bow project as well!

Supplies:

Once again, I’m sharing a short video tutorial with y’all! With projects like this, I think it’s easier to watch someone show you all the steps and have the ability to pause and rewind when you get stuck!

Easy DIY: Felt Ball Wreath Ornaments - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

In the video tutorial, I made three different wreaths — One traditional Christmas, one winter, and one girly pink! I just love all the different color combinations!

These wreaths would look SO cute on your Christmas tree or as decoration on all your presents this holiday season!

I also think they would be adorable as jewelry for a little girl! These are perfectly sized for bracelets and with a few more felt balls, you could easily make a necklace! 🙂

In this video, I show you how to make the velvet bows I topped off all my wreaths with. For a list of supplies, check out the full blog post — Easy DIY: Velvet Ribbon Bows.

Easy DIY: Velvet Ribbon Bows

Hello, crafters!

It’s been WAY too long since I posted a crafting tutorial for you all! Today is the day that I finally post a brand-new how-to for you! (Wasn’t that a fun rhyme?!) 🙂

You might’ve already guessed this, but today we will be making bows! I LOVE bows. They are just darling and can be added to pretty much anything and will up the cute factor by over 1,000%!

Easy DIY: Velvet Ribbon Bows - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

A few months back, I got the hankering to make bows and not just any bows. I really wanted to make velvet bows! So, I hopped in the car, went to Hobby Lobby, and picked up three beautiful spools of 7/8 inch velvet ribbon!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you might’ve caught my post and Story from a while back where I talked you through two of my favorite types of bows! (I have a third favorite, but I’m going to save that tutorial for another day!)

Easy DIY: Velvet Ribbon Bows - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Thanks to Instagram Stories, I have a handy, video tutorial to share with you all today!

Supplies:

I love making bows and after making a few with me, I’m sure you now love making them too!

I have another crafting tutorial featuring one of these bows coming your way soon! So stay tuned!

Until then, Happy Crafting!
