POPSUGAR Must Have Review: November 2017

Hello, hello!

It’s time for my monthly, POPSUGAR Must Have review! If you follow me on Instagram, then you might’ve caught my short, unboxing video last week.  I like doing a short video on Instagram each month to give you all a “first impression” style unboxing with my initial opinions on each product! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you should follow me on IG! @pinkbowstwinkletoes

All the fall vibes in the November box!

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

Unqualified by Anna Faris – Retail Value $28

I read all the time, so I enjoy when POPSUGAR includes books in their boxes. I loved the Lisa Sugar book from last October’s PS box!

My life has been a little hectic lately, so I haven’t had a chance to dive into this book yet. From what I know of Anna Faris and what I’ve read on the back cover, I think this is going to be a great read!

tarte cosmetics – tarteist PRO Glow to Go Highlight & Contour Palette – Retail Value $23

I love tarte products, but I don’t like to contour! So instead of contouring with this palette, I’ve been using it as eyeshadow for the past week!

The middle powder is a little too yellow for me, so I’m not using that one. The top and bottom ones are just right though! I like using the top, shimmery powder all over my lid and the bottom, brown powder in my crease. Perfect for a daytime look!

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

Hester & Cook – Chalkboard Paper Placement Pad & Set of 4 Chalk Style Pencils – Retail Value $25

If you watched my Instagram Story, then you know how excited I got when I pulled these gorgeous pencils out of my box! If you didn’t already know this, I have a HUGE thing for pretty stationery products!

I love the pencil and placemat combo! I think the idea behind these products is just adorable! I don’t want to waste any of the mats, so I haven’t experimented with them yet. I’m going to save this set for a special occasion!

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

Chloe + Isabel – Jen Atkin x Chloe + Isabel Split Headband – Retail Value $22

I love headbands! I used to wear them all the time in middle and high school. I haven’t worn them too much in recent years though because I started wearing my glasses again. Wearing glasses and a headband at the same time is just too much for me! I can’t handle all that behind my ears at one time!

This headband is so gorgeous though that I think I’m going to have to break out my contacts again so I can wear it comfortably!

Also, that rose gold is fantastic and will go with pretty much any outfit!

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

Knot & Bow – Holiday Mint Newsprint Gift Wrap – Retail Value $6

I have heard SO much about Knot & Bow over the last few months, so I’m very excited to try it out!

This pattern is super cute! It isn’t very “holiday” though. I think it’s better suited as birthday gift wrap.  My brother’s birthday is coming up in December, so I think I’ll wrap his gift in this!

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

Fatty Sundays – Peppermint Chocolate-Covered Pretzels – Retail Value $3.49

I’m all for the sweet + salty snacks! There’s just something about chocolate and pretzels mixed together that’s hard to beat! Throw in a little peppermint, and you have the perfect Christmas treat! YUM!

I also really love the name of this brand! Fatty Sundays is just too funny! 🙂

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

This month’s POPSUGAR Must Have box has a total retail value of $107.49. That’s a pretty low value for POPSUGAR. The boxes are only $40 though, so I’m still coming out on top!

There are so many great items in the November box that I’m having trouble choosing my favorites!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the November box?

Hello, hello!

It’s time for my weekly printable release! Are you as excited as I am?! Probably not! 😉

Contacts List: Free Personal Size Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Today, I’m releasing a contacts list for personal planners! With the holidays coming up, you need a place to write down everyone’s information!

Each insert has enough room for 10 people’s contact information. As you can see, there’s a place for their name, email, and phone number. If you’d like to alphabetize your contacts, you can print out 26 copies of this insert (or however many you may need.)

If personal planners aren’t your thing, I also offer a contacts list in an A5 size, which is linked below.

Hourly Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable

Hello, November!

We’re getting closer and closer to 2018! I just can’t believe it!

Is anyone else planning out every waking hour until the new year arrives?! No? Well, you totally could if you wanted to with my latest printable release! 🙂

Hourly Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

A few months back, I introduced the personal size hourly insert. Y’all loved it so much that I figured I ought to make it into an A5 insert as well!

A5 inserts are a bit larger than personal inserts, so this daily page spans from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. as opposed to 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

To give you maximum flexibility, I only included the hours on this insert. You can add in whatever minutes you want to best fit your needs.

Happy Halloween!

I wanted to test the October products for a little while longer this month, so I pushed back my review until the last possible moment!

PLAY! by Sephora Review: October 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

“Complexion Companions” is the theme for the October box! All of this month’s products (aside from the fragrance sample) are complexion-related.

This month’s PLAY!BOOK features an adorable “get ready with me” series full of tips and tricks to prepare your face for the day.

PLAY! by Sephora Review: October 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box Contents:

  • Becca – First Light Filter Face Primer
  • Make Up For Ever – Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation
  • Laura Mercier – Translucent Powder
  • Cover FX – Custom Enhancer Drops
  • Make Up For Ever – Ultra HD Skin Booster
  • Chanel – Gabrielle Chanel
  • Drawstring Bag

Becca – First Light Filter Face Primer

You know me well enough by now to know how much I love trying new primers!

This Becca primer is the prettiest shade of lilac and is very thin and lightweight. The primer is so light that I actually think the bottle feels half empty.

There’s nothing that excites me about this primer (aside from the color!) I don’t love it enough to by the full size, but I will be finishing up this little tube.

PLAY! by Sephora Review: October 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Make Up For Ever – Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in R230

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I pulled this foundation sample out of my PLAY! bag. If you watched my IG Story a few weeks ago, you can attest that I was very pleased!

One of the two foundations that I currently switch off between each day is actually Make Up For Ever Ultra HD. I’ve been using it for several years now and absolutely love the formula and the coverage!

Unfortunately, the shade I received in this month’s box doesn’t work for me. However, my PLAY!BOOK says that I can go into a Sephora store with my PLAY!PASS and get a sample that’s just right for me! (I wear shade Y235.) That is fantastic news!

Make Up For Ever – Ultra HD Skin Booster

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I put off writing this review for a week or so because I wanted to really get an in-depth feel for a few of the products. This skin booster was one of the products that I needed a little more time with.

My PLAY!BOOK says that this product is “a skin-perfecting serum that plumps, smooths, and hydrates your skin for flawless makeup application.”

I’ve used the skin booster several times and haven’t noticed any difference in my makeup application. I think this might be one of those products that just doesn’t work for me.

PLAY! by Sephora Review: October 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Laura Mercier – Translucent Powder

A few months back, I went on a mission to find my new, favorite setting powder. I used the Urban Decay loose powder for years and LOVED it. Over the last few years, it’s become increasingly difficult to find. Because of that, I decided to abandon ship and find a powder that worked just as well but was easier to come by.

While on that mission, I tried the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.  I thought it was going to be my new favorite, but alas, I was wrong. This powder is a little chunkier and perhaps slightly more moist than I would like.

Eventually, I settled on the bareminerals Mineral Veil loose powder. Their powder is nice and fine and perfectly suits my needs.

Even though I didn’t find the Laura Mercier powder to be my favorite, I’ll still save this sample and use it in a pinch!

PLAY! by Sephora Review: October 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Cover FX – Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight

Cover FX drops have interested me for months now. I heard about their Custom Cover Drops at an in-store PLAY! event and have wanted to try them ever since.

These drops are slightly different but are still the same idea. All you have to do is add a few drops to your foundation and then apply to the areas of your face where you’d like a little highlight.

I’m not the best at highlighting my face. I usually stay away from contouring products, because I don’t want to accidentally make myself look like a clown! However, these drops were super easy to use! I’m going to save them for special events when I want to add a little extra glow to my face.

PLAY! by Sephora Review: October 2017 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Chanel – Gabrielle Chanel

You know by now that perfume and I don’t get along! 😉

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

November Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello, hello!

November is quickly approaching, so it’s time to release my sticker freebie for the month.

Since the 2016 and 2017 ECLP monthly colors are the same, I’ve been trying to make the patterns/theme for 2017 somewhat match the 2016 printable. That way, you can use them together if you’d like!

[Related: November 2016 Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable]

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

I know that November is very much a fall month, but the blue color theme in the Erin Condren LifePlanner lends itself more to winter. Because of the blues, I did a snowflake theme last year and stuck with it (with different shaped flakes) for this year’s November freebie!

Just because this is the November freebie doesn’t mean that you have to use it in November. You can wait for your first snowfall or until the peak of your winter season! If you do choose to wait, the only thing you’ll be missing out on is the “Hello, November” full box.  And that’s not a big deal at all!

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

As you can see, I deviated slightly from the EC bluish-green color and went with more of a true blue for this printable. True blue has more of a wintery feel to it. At least it does to me!

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 November 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 again soon with more sticker freebie fun!

Until then, Happy Planning!

Grocery List Insert: Free Personal Size Planner Printable

Happy Thursday!

I hope everyone is having a great week! If not, it’s about to get better with my latest printable freebie!

Y’all loved when I released the A5 Grocery Insert, so I decided to make a personal size one as well!

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

Food is fun and so are lists! Combine the best of both worlds with this handy printable! 😉

I hate going grocery shopping without a list. It’s quite stressful, and I always manage to forget something! Breaking down the necessities into categories will, hopefully, keep you from forgeting anything and save you time at the store too.

Just like the A5 insert, this personal insert is broken down into three sections (refrigerator, pantry, and miscellaneous) and has check boxes for marking each item off your list.
