POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018

Hello, hello!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review! I’m sad to say that this will be my last monthly review. Not because I’m unsubscribing but because POPSUGAR is changing to a quarterly box. That means I’ll be doing a review every three months or so.

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Box Contents:

  • K. Hall Designs – Peony Jar Candle
  • TokyoMilk – Anthemonessa No. 84 Shea Butter Handcreme
  • Nima Oberoi Lunares – Heart Vase
  • Droga Chocolates – Money on Honey – Dark Chocolate Brown Rice Crispy
  • La Soula Jewelry – Universal Love Bracelet
  • TokyoMilk – French Kiss No. 15 Parfum
  • Stella Artois – Limited Edition Chalices

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

K. Hall Designs – Peony Jar Candle – Retail Value $26

Over the last few months, POPSUGAR has added quite a few candles to my collection! I’m not complaining though! I love a good candle!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

TokyoMilk – Anthemonessa No. 84 Shea Butter Handcreme – Retail Value $22

I use hand cream every single night before bed, so I’m always pumped when I get a tube in a subscription box!

The packaging is absolutely stunning! The scent is pretty great too! Very light and girly!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Nima Oberoi Lunares – Heart Vase – Retail Value $49

This vase is simple but chic! I don’t have a place for it now, but I’m sure I will soon!

P.S. How awkward is it to photograph things that are reflective?! #SuperAwkward

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Droga Chocolates – Money on Honey – Dark Chocolate Brown Rice Crispy – Retail Value $4.99

Chocolate with caramel is one of my favorite types of chocolate! Dark chocolate isn’t at the top of my list, but it’s pretty good in this honey caramel and rice crispy combo!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

La Soula Jewelry – Universal Love Bracelet – Retail Value $39

Another simple and chic item! POPSUGAR let us pick between gold and silver this month, and I went with silver. Since I picked gold before, I decided to mix it up this month!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

TokyoMilk – French Kiss No. 15 Parfum – Retail Value $30

I’m pretty sensitive to smells on my body. Super scented hand creams bother me and the same goes for perfumes.

I like the fragrance of this perfume, but I don’t think I could handle wearing it! I have a friend that’s interested so I will be gifting this to her!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Stella Artois – Limited Edition Chalices – Special Extra

For each one of these glasses sold, Stella Artois and water.org will provide five years’ worth of clean water for someone in need, which is pretty cool!

I understand and appreciate the charity aspect of the glasses, but I’m just not sure what I’m going to do with them. The person I had them in mind for doesn’t want them! I guess I’ll just have to think of someone else then!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: February 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

The total retail value of this box is $170.99, which isn’t too shabby for a $40 box!

However,  I’m a little disappointed in the February box. Because of the switch from monthly to quarterly, I thought POPSUGAR would have an incredible, final monthly. I just don’t think that’s the case with this box though. Nothing about it really WOWs me. 😦

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?

What do you think of the February box? What do you think of the switch from monthly to quarterly?

I’ll be back again in a few months with my first quarterly box review!

Holiday Freebie: DIY Printable Valentines - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Holiday Freebie: DIY Printable Valentines

Hello, everyone!

I’m coming at y’all today with a very exciting freebie! If you’re a newsletter subscriber, then you’ve already seen this! If not, you should sign up for my newsletter so you can get first access to releases like this!

Holiday Freebie: DIY Printable Valentines - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

This week’s adorable freebie features five printable valentines — three with honey bees and two with conversation hearts!

I love all five, but I’m partial to the honey bees! They are just TOO CUTE!!

You can sweeten up your cards by taping a piece of candy on the inside or outside of each valentine! Actual conversation hearts are an acquired taste so I wouldn’t suggest those but they would go quite nicely with the second set of cards! 🙂

[Related: Happy Valentine’s Day Art Print: Free Download]

Holiday Freebie: DIY Printable Valentines - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Before I give you the 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! For best results, I recommend printing these cuties on cardstock.

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 on desktop:

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

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 Printable Valentines.


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 printable fun!

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

Brainstorm Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable

Hello, Planners!

I’m coming at you today with another bullet journal style insert! This one is not quite as exciting as last week’s Reading & Book Log, but it is still a great addition to your planner!

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

I constantly brainstorm ideas for new projects and such, so I figured a printable for just that was in order!

This brainstorm insert can be used in many ways! One way is to put your topic in the half hexagon on the top and then fill the rest of the hexagons with your coordinating ideas. Another option is to use each hexagon for a different brainstorm or braindump. You could also mix and match the above ideas or do something completely different with it!

Whatever you choose to do, this printable is guaranteed to make collecting all your ideas a breeze!

Reading & Book Log: Free A5 Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Reading & Book Log: Free A5 Planner Printable

Hello, everyone!

Today, I’m coming at you with what I think is the cutest planner printable EVER!!! 🙂

Reading & Book Log: Free A5 Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

I’m not a bullet journal kind of girl, but I absolutely love all their creative spread ideas! The logs and the trackers are too cute, but I don’t have the patience to draw them out each month. So, I thought it’d be a great idea to turn some adorable bu-jo spread ideas into printables that you can print out each month!

I created two different versions of this printable. One version has five rows of shorter books and the other has four rows of taller books. You can pick your poison below!

[Related: 2018 Goal Planning Insert: Free A5 Planner Printable]

Reading & Book Log: Free A5 Planner Printable - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Not only is this printable a book log, it also doubles as a coloring page!! Of course, if you don’t want to, you don’t have to color in your bookshelf.

I’m planning to write down all the books I want to read this month/quarter/year (whatever the time frame) in my bookshelf and then color the book in once I’ve read it. You could also use the “books” as a progress bar and color in a little as you go. Another thing you could do is wait until you’ve read a book to add it to your log. As you can see, the possibilities are virtually endless!

To make my log a little more fun, I added a potted succulent on top of a few of the stacked books! You can add plants, candles, photo frames, etc. to make this bookshelf all your own!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018

Hello, hello!

It’s time for the first POPSUGAR Must Have Review of 2018! Are you excited?! I know I am!

ACS_0031

Box contents:

  • Hat Attack – Lightweight Ribbed Hat with Faux Fur Pom
  • Nuun  Hydration – Nuun Vitamins – Strawberry Melon
  • RXBAR – Chocolate Sea Salt RXBAR
  • BAN.DO – Best Year Ever Wall Calendar
  • KeepCup – KeepCup Original Clear Edition – 16 oz.
  • Farmacy Beauty – HONEY DROP Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy Honey

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Hat Attack – Lightweight Ribbed Hat with Faux Fur Pom – Retail Value $44

We’ve had a few really cold days in Florida recently, so I’ve loved wearing this hat in the mornings for my walk from the parking garage to my office.

Also, that pom pom is fantastic!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Nuun  Hydration – Nuun Vitamins – Strawberry Melon – Retail Value $7

I am not 100% sure what this is for and what it’s supposed to do for me. I need to do a little more research on it before trying this out!

RXBAR – Chocolate Sea Salt RXBAR – Retail Value $1.99

I’ve seen a lot of these bars on Instagram over the last few months, so I was pumped to see one pop up in my box. I took it to work with me the next day for a midday snack.

The flavor was great! However, the entire time I was eating it I was worried about it getting stuck in my teeth. The bar was dark brown and gummy, so you can just imagine how gross and embarrassing that would be to have stuck in your teeth!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

BAN.DO – Best Year Ever Wall Calendar – Retail Value $20

Y’all know how much I love planners. It turns out I love calendars too! I haven’t used a wall calendar in years, so I’m excited to add this cutie to my wall decor!

ACS_0027

ACS_0028

Each month has a different piece of artwork on top. Out of all the months, February is my favorite! ❤

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

KeepCup – KeepCup Original Clear Edition – 16 oz. – Retail Value $19

For the last few days, I’ve been thinking about taking some hot tea with me on my commute to work. This to-go cup will be perfect for that!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes
I like how sleek and simple this cup is. The light blue lid accent adds a great pop of color to it!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: January 2018 - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

Farmacy Beauty – HONEY DROP Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy Honey – Retail Value $45

I have sensitive skin so trying new moisturizers is always a little scary for me! I’ve tried Farmacy products before, so I had it on good authority that this moisturizer probably wouldn’t agree with me. Unfortunately, I was right and it makes me a little itchy.

I love Farmacy though! Their packaging is incredible! They really pay attention to details. The lid on this container has a magnet in it, so that little metal spatula stays right where it’s supposed to!

ACS_0029

The total retail value of this month’s box is $136.99. That’s relatively low in the grand scheme of POPSUGAR box values but it’s still great for a $40 box!

My favorite items this month would have to be the BAN.DO calendar and the KeepCup. I’m also pretty excited about the pom pom hat!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the January box?
