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!

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!

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!

Each month has a different piece of artwork on top. Out of all the months, February is my favorite! <3

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!

I like how sleek and simple this cup is. The light blue lid accent adds a great pop of color to it!

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!

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!

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

This review is a little later than usual because POPSUGAR had some shipping issues this month! I did get my box before the month ended, so I’m happy!

Cravings – Chrissy Teigen – Retail Value $29.99

I’m graduating college this week, so a cookbook is actually going to be great for me!  I haven’t done much cooking these last four years, so maybe this book will give me some inspiration!

IMG_9965

I flipped through the book and thought these wontons sounded delicious!

Tinware Salt & Pepper Shakers – Canvas Home – Retail Value $12

I think these salt and pepper shakers are absolutely adorable!  I love vintage feel!

I’ll definitely be using them in my next apartment!

Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans – Next By Nature – Retail Value $3.99

I’ve had chocolate covered espresso beans before, and I love them!

I was very pleased to see these in my box this month!

IMG_9980

Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm – Farmacy – Retail Value $48

I’ve never tried this brand before, but I think I really like it!

The balm smells great and hasn’t irritated my skin yet!  That’s always a plus!

IMG_9994

The balm came in this origami like box! How cool is that?!

The box was a little difficult to close but the packaging is so impressive, it doesn’t really matter!  I also don’t think normal people would open and close the box as many times as I did!

“Lemons” Flour Sack Tea Towel – Noon Design Shop – Retail Value $18

This towel is SO cute!

My mom is a huge fan of flour sack towels, so she will probably be receiving this one soon!  She reads my blog though, so now the surprise is ruined!  Oh well!!

Field Poppy Conservatories Hand Creme – Royal Apothic – Retail Value $24

I really like fancy hand cremes, so I’m a huge fan of this item!

The creme has a very strong perfume-y scent, so it could definitely become overwhelming!  I’m trying not to use too much at a time, so I don’t get a headache!

I like that it came with a little tool to help you squeeze every bit of lotion out of the bottle!  Super handy!

$20 Gift Card – Bloom That

I don’t think I’ll be using this gift card, but I’m sure other subscribers will!

IMG_9958

The total retail value of the April box (excluding the gift card) is $135.98!  That’s fantastic!

I’m very pleased with the April box and see myself using each one of these products!
