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

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: December 2017

Hello, Hello!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season! I can’t believe that New Year’s Eve will be here in just a few days! November and December always seem to fly right by!

Out of the 12 POPSUGAR boxes I receive each year, December is one of the ones I look forward to the most! What with Christmas and celebrations galore during the month, this box just always seems to be one of the best each year! It always comes with the best giftables and a few splurge items for yourself!

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

Box Contents:

  • Tilo – Twilight Scarf
  • Lalicious – Extraordinary whipped Sugar Scrub – Sugar Kiss
  • Chloe + Isabel – Pavé Bar Long Pendant Necklace
  • Wild Ophelia – Sugar Cookie Chocolate Bar
  • BaubleBar – Sugar and Spice Coaster Set
  • Ashkahn – For You Gift Tags
  • Pier 1 Imports – Cocktail Filled Candle – Moscow Mule

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

Tilo – Twilight Scarf – Retail Value $98

It’s finally (kinda) (almost) (maybe) scarf season in Florida! I think this scarf would be adorable paired with a white shirt, jeans, and booties!

The tiny sequins embedded throughout are a great addition! They take a plain, gray scarf and transform it into something more!

Lalicious – Extraordinary whipped Sugar Scrub – Sugar Kiss – Retail Value $35

I love a good sugar scrub! I received a different scrub in one of my very first POPSUGAR boxes years ago! I finished that one off earlier this year, so I’m happy to have a new one!

Sugar Kiss is a very sweet scent. The name is quite fitting! I don’t usually go for the sweeter fragrances, but I like this one!

Chloe + Isabel – Pavé Bar Long Pendant Necklace – Retail Value $42

POPSUGAR sneak peeked this necklace to subscribers last month and allowed us to choose between gold and silver. I love having options, so I was very pleased when they offered us a choice! Clearly, I chose gold!

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to wear this necklace myself or save it for a gift! I’m leaning more towards a gift though!

Wild Ophelia – Sugar Cookie Chocolate Bar – Retail Value $2.99

You know how I feel about snacks! This month’s chocolate bar intrigued me quite a bit! It’s milk chocolate with sugar cookie and toffee bits inside.

For some reason, I was expecting the chocolate bar to be white. I guess because of the packaging (which is absolutely gorgeous! A++) and the fact that sugar cookies are involved. I was wrong. This chocolate is indeed brown! LOL!

BaubleBar – Sugar and Spice Coaster Set – Retail Value $38

These coasters are so jazzy! All the glitz and shimmer!!

I have a friend that would absolutely love them! I’m thinking of saving these to give her for her birthday next year.

Ashkahn – For You Gift Tags – Retail Value $12

When I wrapped my Christmas gifts, I completely forgot to use these tags! They’re adorable, so I know they would’ve been a great addition to my packages!

Since they’re not holiday specific, I think I’m going to incorporate these into a few birthday gifts throughout the year!

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

Pier 1 Imports – Cocktail Filled Candle – Moscow Mule – Retail Value $14.95

Over the last year, I’ve amassed quite the candle collection! I used to love lighting candles in my college apartment and can’t wait to do so again soon!

This Moscow Mule scent is fresh and delightful! It’s very light and the packaging is gorgeous! That rose gold lid!! 🙂

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

The total retail value of this month’s box is $242.94. That is incredible! I can’t remember the last time a box had this high of a value!

As usual, the December box did not disappoint! My favorite item this month is the Lalicious sugar scrub! I have a feeling that my tub of scrub will be empty before I know it!

What do you think of the December box?

I’m back again this week with another easy + fun crafting tutorial! Today, I’ll be showing you how to make some super cute, wreath ornaments.

This week’s wreath project combines a bit of last week’s Easy DIY Velvet Bow project as well!

Once again, I’m sharing a short video tutorial with y’all! With projects like this, I think it’s easier to watch someone show you all the steps and have the ability to pause and rewind when you get stuck!

Easy DIY: Felt Ball Wreath Ornaments - Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes

In the video tutorial, I made three different wreaths — One traditional Christmas, one winter, and one girly pink! I just love all the different color combinations!

These wreaths would look SO cute on your Christmas tree or as decoration on all your presents this holiday season!

I also think they would be adorable as jewelry for a little girl! These are perfectly sized for bracelets and with a few more felt balls, you could easily make a necklace! 🙂

In this video, I show you how to make the velvet bows I topped off all my wreaths with. For a list of supplies, check out the full blog post — Easy DIY: Velvet Ribbon Bows.

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

December Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello, hello!

A new month is (almost) upon us, so it’s time for me to release some December planner stickers!

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

The 2017 December freebie has a bit of a whimsical Christmas theme to it! I love the light greens with the touches of bright red. The multicolored polka dots are just darling if I do say so myself! 🙂

This printable perfectly matches my 2016 December freebie and also coordinates quite nicely with the monthly colors in the Erin Condren LifePlanner.

My 2016 December freebie is holly-themed and will look fantastic with this 2017 freebie if you choose to use both printables at the same time. I’m planning to use both printables next week! You should download and use both too so we can be planner twins! 🙂

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

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 December Functional Sticker Sheet 2017.

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – December 2014

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly, Julep Maven review!

DSCN3619If you’d also like to receive these pretty, purple boxes every month, click here!

DSCN3623Box Contents:

  • Ilga – Classic with a Twist – Rich Bordeaux Crème
  • Sienna – Classic with a Twist – Sophisticated, Shimmery Gold
  • Orbital Eyeshadow – Airglow – Champagne Pearlescent with Rose Gold
  • Two Peppermints
  • Coupon

DSCN3641December features “The Countdown Collection.”

DSCN3626I love both of my polishes this month!  Both are perfect for the Christmas season!

Sienna – Classic with a Twist – Sophisticated, Shimmery Gold

I haven’t tried out this gold polish yet, but I’m hoping to soon!  It’s perfect for an accent nail or polka dots!

I read online that this color was reintroduced for the December box.  I don’t like the fact that they recycled Sienna, but I won’t be too upset until I get a duplicate.

Ilga – Classic with a Twist – Rich Bordeaux Crème

My fingernails and toenails are both painted with Ilga right now!  It’s such a classic, dark red.  I absolutely love it!

DSCN3635Orbital Eyeshadow – Airglow – Champagne Pearlescent with Rose Gold

This eyeshadow is beautiful! There were quite a few different colors offered, and I was very pleased to see that the one chosen for me is one of my favorite shades!

It’s more glittery than the shimmer shadows that I usually wear, but I still love it!

DSCN3642As usual, Julep included a coupon in the box.  This one is good for two uses and expires January 31, 2015!

What did you get in your December box? Are you in love with your polishes too?!
