Odeme – Catchall + Ring Dish – Retail Value $67

Those of you that follow me on Instagram (if you don’t follow me, you totally should @pinkbowstwinkletoes) have probably figured our how much I love trinket dishes!  I like to use them in the majority of my photos.  So as you can imagine, this little set is just perfect for me!

I love the size, shape, and detailing of both of these dishes! When taking flatlay images, you’ll only be able to see the white rims, which I’m very pleased by.  Many of my dishes have gold accents, so these are a great change of pace for me!

BaubleBar – Snowfall Pendant – Retail Value $28

I’m not so sure about this necklace.  It’s not exactly my style.  I wear more gold these days than silver, but I’m more unsure about the pendant itself.  It sort of reminds me of an old fashioned microphone.  Is anyone else getting that vibe, or is it just me?! 🙂

I’m going to see if any of my friends would like this necklace!  I’m sure one of them will!

Mane Message – Date Night Bobby Pins – Retail Value $10

I pull my hair back with a plain bobby pin quite often, so I’m excited to mix it up with one of these.

This pack came with two glitter pins and one solid one.  They’re all so pretty, and I’m having trouble deciding which one is my favorite!  I haven’t decided what I’m going to wear for Christmas yet, but I’m going to try to incorporate one of these pins!

Winky Lux – Lip Pill in Bunny – Retail Value $14

I loved this lipstick right off the bat just because of how adorable the floral box is! Isn’t it the cutest?!  Also the name “Bunny” is pretty adorable too!

After trying it on, I loved it even more. The cranberry color is very pretty!  I like it much more than the red lip stain I received in my PLAY! Box this month.  I’ll definitely be packing this pretty lip pill in my purse for the winter months.

Sisters’ Gourmet – Baker’s Dozen Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix – Retail Value $6.99

POPSUGAR featured a cookie mix kit last winter.  I invited all my friends over, and we had a blast baking them together!  My friends and I are all living in different places now, so unfortunately, we won’t be able to do that again this year.  🙁

POPSUGAR recommends this as a hostess gift, which I think is a fantastic idea.  I also think it’d be great as a housewarming gift.  One of my friends is moving in January, so perhaps I’ll send it to her!

Dessange Professional Hair Luxury – Color Restore Color Protecting Top Coat Serum – Retail Value $11.99

I’m always intrigued by the hair conditioners and treatments included in my boxes.  I actually discovered my favorite leave-in conditioner and hair mask in subscription boxes.

I have thinner hair, so some products are too much for me.  After using this product, I noticed that my hair was a little greasier than usual at the end of the day.

This serum isn’t bad, but I still don’t think it will become one of my favorites.  I’m going to see if one of my friends is interested in trying it out.

The total retail value for the December box is $137.98.  That’s not too shabby!  I’m very excited about the trinket dishes, bobby pins, and the lipstick!

Tilo – Heart Print Scarf – Retail Value $125

I absolutely LOVE this scarf! I wore it shortly after opening my box!

The heart print is fun but very subtle!  It’s definitely a print I can see myself wearing all the time!

Beautycounter – Nourishing Cleansing Balm – Retail Value $50

I’ve never used a cleansing balm before, so I was very intrigued when I saw this in my box! I love that it comes with its own cleansing cloth!

I typically clean my face while I’m in the shower, so I don’t see myself using this product very often.  I have tried it though and do like it quite a bit!

JewleryStorm – Endless Arrow Ring – Retail Value $28

I love jewelry, so I was pretty excited when I saw a little jewelry box included this month.   Unfortunately, I do not find this ring to be overly attractive.  The rhinestones just don’t do it for me.

IMG_8307

Luckily, the side and bottom of the ring are a pretty hammered gold.

I think the ring is much prettier when it’s turned upside down!

Fringe Studio – Hello Beautiful Square Tray – Retail Value $14

I love this tray!  I think it’s so pretty! I’m a huge fan of decorative bowls and knick knacks, so this is right up my alley!

The words are a beautiful, metallic gold along with the entire backside of the tray.  The gold adds a little something and makes the tray more elegant and fancy!

Victoria’s Secret – Coconut Milk Hydrating Body Lotion – Retail Value $18

I’ve never tried any of the body products from Victoria’s Secret, so I was very pleased to find this lotion in my box.

It doesn’t seem overly moisturizing, but I wasn’t expecting it to be.

I’m not a huge fan of the coconut fragrance, so I’m going to try and exchange it for another scent.  Hopefully, I’ll be successful!

Victoria’s Secret – Sport Socks – Retail Value $6 (estimated)

Socks are always appreciated, so these are great!  I’ll definitely get some use out of them!

Victoria’s Secret – Reward Card – Retail Value $20

I’ve actually already used this reward card! I went out the day after I got my box and made a purchase! 🙂

Foodstirs – Heart Cookie Mix – Retail Value $12.95

I got so excited when I saw this cookie mix in my box!  It’s so cute and fun!

I invited a few of my friends over this weekend and we made the cookies together!

IMG_8543

Don’t they look yummy?!

I will admit that they weren’t the tastiest cookies I’ve ever made, but my friends and I had tons of fun making them together!

IMG_8282

The retail value for this box is $273.95!  That’s crazy!  I’ve never gotten a box with that high of a retail value before! I included the VS Reward Card in the total since I already redeemed it.
