Dots & Boxes Game – Free Printable Insert

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another Busy Book printable! Say hello to the dots and boxes game printable freebie! While making this printable, I discovered that this game is also called Pigs in a Pen, Dot to Dot, Squares, and much, much more! Whatever you like to call it, it’s fun, easy to play, and can get intense if you play with the right people!

Dots & Boxes Game - Free Printable Insert - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

If you’re unfamiliar with Dots & Boxes, here is how you play according to Wikipedia:

“Starting with an empty grid of dots, two players take turns adding a single horizontal or vertical line between two unjoined adjacent dots. The player who completes the fourth side of a 1×1 box earns one point and takes another turn. (A point is typically recorded by placing a mark that identifies the player in the box, such as an initial.) The game ends when no more lines can be placed. The winner is the player with the most points.”

What is a Busy Book?

If you’re a newsletter subscriber, then you know all about this! If not (sign up here!), here’s a brief explanation! This summer, I will be releasing printables each week that can be put together in a mini binder to create a Busy Book, which will provide hours and hours of entertainment for your little ones while you travel this summer and beyond!

Printables in this series will include coloring pages, games, and more! Each printable will fit perfectly in a mini binder or an A5 planner! I chose to make everything in this series A5 size so you could easily (and cheaply) purchase mini binders for your children!

You can find mini binders pretty much anywhere binders are sold. My favorites are from the Target Dollar Spot and Amazon.

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review

It’s subscription box review time! Today, I’m coming at you with a FabFitFun Summer 2018 review. I received a starter box a few months back, but this is my first “official” FabFitFun box. Trying out a new subscription box is always so exciting! Want $10 off your first box? Follow this link and use the code NEED10.

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle ToesEach FabFitFun box comes with a large magazine full of information on this season’s products, tips and tricks, and fun articles. The last page of the magazine has six coupon codes. One code for almost every brand included in the box. Who doesn’t love coupons?!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box Contents:

  • Yumi Kim – Makeup Train Case
  • tarte tarteist – PRO glow highlight & contour palette
  • Orlando Pita Play – Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray
  • Minor History – Post Script Wallet
  • Jaboneria Marianella – Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar
  • COOLA – Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer
  • FOREO LUNA – fofo
  • Pier 1 Imports – Marble Ring Dish

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Yumi Kim – Makeup Train Case – Retail Value $58

FabFitFun gives subscribers a few customization options each month. I chose this navy train case instead of a beach towel. I have tons of towels, so I figured a new bag was a better choice!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

I love the navy and striped geometric pattern. It has a brush holder and a zipper pocket on top and a larger compartment on the bottom. I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to use this case for makeup or craft supplies yet. It’s going to be fantastic for both!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

tarte tarteist – PRO glow highlight & contour palette – retail value $45

I’m not one for contouring, but I do love makeup palettes! Since subscribing to my first box years ago, I quickly learned that subscription boxes LOVE to give out contour palettes. Also, contour palettes work great as eyeshadow!

I’ve been using this palette as eyeshadow for several weeks now an absolutely love it! I’ve been using Stunner on my lid, Scuplt in my crease, and Strobe as a highlight under my brow. If you have this palette too, you should give it a try. I’ve gotten quite a few compliments on this look!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Orlando Pita Play – Amos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray – Retail Value $34

Right before getting this box in the mail, I purchased some new heat protectant spray. Terrible timing, right? Oh, well! I will eventually use up the spray I bought and this one too! I always like having a little extra on hand anyway.

I’ve been using this heat spray for the last few weeks and really like it! It smells nice and doesn’t leave the floor all slippery. You might think that’s a weird comment, but if you use heat protectant spray regularly, then you probably know what I mean. Sometimes, the spray will get on the floor and almost take you down! Yikes!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Minor History – Post Script Wallet – Retail Value $20

This wallet is cute but is teeny tiny! It would fit 2-3 cards and that’s about it.

I think it’s better served as a luggage tag. That’s probably how I’m going to end up using it!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Jaboneria Marianella – Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar

This is another item that FabFitFun let us pick out! I chose this body caviar over a ring and muscle gel. Out of the three items offered, I made what I thought was the best choice. After receiving the scrub though, I’m just not quite sure.

I can’t determine exactly what scent the caviar is, but it smells tangy and is just a little off. I’m also not a huge fan of the charcoal. It’s a tad messy and gets all over the shower wall when you go to wash it off. I’ll have to see if any of my friends are interested in taking it off my hands.

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

COOLA – Face Sport SPF 50 White Tea Moisturizer – Retail Value $32

Sunscreen is a given when it comes to subscription boxes in the summer. I can guarantee that I will always get one, if not two or three, during the summer months. Although sunscreen is not an exciting product to receive, this fair-skinned girl doesn’t hate it! It’s definitely something that I will always use!

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

FOREO LUNA – fofo – Retail Value $89

I think it’s so funny that this FOREO LUNA is called a fofo. What kind of name is that?! Too funny!

Aside from the goofy name, I do like the product. It’s quite different from my Clarisonic Mia 2 though. The fofo is smaller and harder to hold once it gets soapy, but is great for my back and chest. Because of the shape, I find it’s more difficult to use on my face. Because of that, I will be sticking to my Clarisonic for face washing.

A huge feature of the FOREO LUNA fofo is that it connects to an app and has the ability to create a personalized profile just for you and can be customized to your skin and its sensitivities. That’s fantastic except I can’t get the app to work. I have several friends that also received the fofo and aren’t having any troubles with the app. I think it’s just me! I’m hoping to get the app working soon!

Pier 1 Imports – Marble Ring Dish – Retail Value $14.99

How cute is this dish? The gold detailing is very chic! You can bet you’ll see this cutie pop up on my Instagram page in a styled photo sometime soon.

FabFitFun Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The total retail value of my FabFitFun Summer 2018 box is $340.99. That’s incredible for a $50 box!

I got some great products this season and a few that I’m not in love with. Even so, I would consider the FabFitFun Summer 2018 box a success!

Do you want $10 off your first box? If so, follow this link and use the code NEED10.

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review

It’s been months since my last subscription box review! That’s entirely too long to go without a surprise box of goodies on my doorstep! Therefore, I am so happy to be back again today with this POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 review! I’m so excited for this box and review! Are you?

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

As I mentioned above, it’s been months since my last POPSUGAR Must Have review! That’s because POPSUGAR recently switched from a monthly subscription service to a quarterly one! From now on, you can expect my reviews to pop up every three months or so! Enough talking. Let’s get to it!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box contents:

  • Beauty by POPSUGAR – Be the Boss Lip Gloss: Time After Time
  • Eberjey – Wrap Robe
  • Sunday Riley – C.E.O Rapid Flash Brightening Serum
  • Lele Sadoughi – Circle Garland Earring
  • Sphynx – 3-in-1 Portable Razor
  • Mela Artisans – Concha Round Box
  • Ahmad Tea of London – Fruit & Herb Selection
  • Mrs. Meyer’s – Lavender Hand Sanitizer
  • Mrs. Meyer’s – Lemon Verbena Bar Soap
  • Propel – Watermelon Powder

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Beauty by POPSUGAR – Be the Boss Lip Gloss: Time After Time – Retail Value $18

I was very pleased to see a POPSUGAR beauty item in this box, especially since they recently launched the line! The gloss is a neutral color, which is great! Many times, when lip colors are included in subscription boxes, they’re the most ridiculous shades.

I love the consistency of the gloss and the color payoff! So pretty and natural. This gloss will be added to my revolving rotation of lip colors!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Eberjey – Wrap Robe – Retail Value $88

This robe is incredibly soft! The blush pink with navy ribbing is feminine and pretty.

I can see myself lounging around the house on Sundays, sitting on the couch, and enjoying a cup of tea while wearing it! So comfy!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Sunday Riley – C.E.O Rapid Flash Brightening Serum – Retail Value $85

I’ve heard lots of great things about Sunday Riley products, so I was very excited to give the C.E.O, Brightening Serum a try. I’ve been using this serum for several days now and really like it! It smells fantastic – like an explosion of oranges!

Because of the hefty price tag, I don’t see myself repurchasing. I’ll reconsider if I find the serum to be life changing though!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Lele Sadoughi – Circle Garland Earring – Retail Value $98

These earrings are beautiful! I love the length and all the different colored stones!

I’ve worn them a few times now and love the way they look when paired with black dresses and tops. The stones really pop!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Sphynx – 3-in-1 Portable Razor – Retail Value $14.99

How neat is this shaving kit? It includes a spray bottle, a shea butter shave bar, and two razor blades. How convenient is that? It’s one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time!

I haven’t tested it out yet, because I want to save it for an emergency. I’m sure you understand!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Mela Artisans – Concha Round Box – Retail Value $60

This box is absolutely gorgeous! The shell top is just stunning and pairs very well with the wooden bottom.

I’m going to keep this on my dresser with little treasures or keepsakes inside.

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Ahmad Tea of London – Fruit & Herb Selection – Retail Value $4.50

This is the yummy tea I’ll be drinking while wearing the snuggly robe above!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Mrs. Meyer’s – Lavender Hand Sanitizer – Special Extra

I just ran out of hand sanitizer at my desk, so this couldn’t have come at a better time!

The scent is subtle and perfect for the workplace. I wouldn’t want to annoy the people around me with any strong smells.

Mrs. Meyer’s – Lemon Verbena Bar Soap – Special Extra

I haven’t opened the bar soap yet, because I’m saving it to use at my kitchen sink. I’ve smelled it through the wrapper though, and it smells great! Fresh and clean!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Propel – Watermelon Powder – Special Extra

I don’t do a lot of exercise, so I won’t be getting full use of this product. However, I’m planning to keep it at my desk at work to drink when I don’t feel like drinking plain water. Watermelon water will be a nice change of pace!

POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 Review - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 box has a total retail value of over $368.49. That’s incredible!

The quarterly box is about double the price of the old, monthly box but the retail value is almost double! I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the POPSUGAR Must Have Summer 2018 box! The selection and value of the items is greater than what I was expecting, so I can’t wait to see what the fall box has in store!
