I learned about this book months ago. I had it in my Amazon cart and was about to preorder it when I got a POPSUGAR sneak peek that said we’d be getting it in the winter box.

This book is full of recipes, funny anecdotes, and life lessons from Reese. There’s one page about southern phrases and language that absolutely cracked me up!

If you’re looking for a great last-minute gift for someone in your life, this book is perfect! Grab it on Amazon and have it wrapped and ready to go in two days!

Uncommon James – 100% Handmade Cotton Fringe Throw – Retail Value $118

I run a little on the cold side, so I always keep a blanket or two or three in my living room! This one from Uncommon James is gorgeous and fits right in with my shabby chic decor! It’s nice and lightweight, which will be perfect for the spring and summer months.

Apotheke – Tobacco Blossom Candle – Retail Value $36

Candles are like blankets — they instantly make a room cozy! I have quite a large collection and am happy to add this one into the mix! It’s vanilla scented, which I don’t typically go for. However, I like it quite a bit!

Since it’s Christmastime, I’m burning my favorite cinnamon and clove scent. This candle is at the top of my list when the holiday season is over though!

Kate Spade New York – Desktop Easel Calendar – Retail Value $20

If you watched my Instagram unboxing, then you know how excited I was to see this cutie in my box! If you didn’t catch my unboxing but you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you can probably imagine how excited I was.

Kate Spade and calendars are two of my favorite things. Put the two together? I’m a total goner! I can’t wait to add this beauty to my desk in 2019!

If you’re looking for excellent gifts for your boss or colleagues this season, pick up a few of these! Nothing beats 2-day shipping on Amazon!

Melinda Maria Designs – Sabrina Pod Necklace – Retail Value $98

Classic and chic — I love the hammered details on this necklace. POPSUGAR sneak peeked this item as well and gave us the choice of gold or silver. I clearly picked gold!

I just got a black turtleneck that I’m pretty sure is going to look fantastic with it! This necklace is long enough that you can double it up for a shorter look or leave it as one loop if you’re looking for something a little longer.

Estée Lauder – Beautiful Belle Eau De Parfum Rollerball – Retail Value $28

As I’m sure you know by now, perfumes aren’t my thing. I’m a little sensitive to smell and can’t handle smelling myself all day.

However, this rollerball is gorgeous and I think it’d make a wonderful gift!

Winky Lux – Sugar Kitten Palette – Retail Value $25

Another thing I love besides Kate Spade and calendars? Eyeshadow palettes!  I went a little crazy one summer in college and bought a ton of them. And by a ton, I mean at least ten!

While I love eyeshadow, I tend to stick to the same colors. Champagne shimmers and lighter neutrals are what I’m drawn to. So, I won’t be getting much use out of the glittery purple or bright pink shades in this palette. However, the other shades work very well for me!

Ellia – Jet Lag Essential Oil Roll-On – Special Extra

Essential oils are all the rage these days. So many of the people I follow on Instagram swear by them. Because of that, I was very excited to receive my own. 

This essential oil is for jet lag. I don’t go on many trips that include time changes, so I’ve just been using it in the mornings when I need a little boost. Honestly, I haven’t noticed anything when I’ve used it. I’m going to do some research to see if this oil has some other benefits that I should be taking advantage of.

Wander Beauty – Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks – Retail Value $25

Over the years, I’ve received so many of this style eye mask. I don’t use them often but when I do, I always have a really hard time keeping them on my face. They always seem to slip and slide around!

Of the eye masks I’ve tried, I haven’t tested these ones yet. They’re gold, which is luxurious and fun! Maybe these will stay on my face much better than some of the others I’ve tried in the past. We will see!

Lumify – Redness Reliever Eye Drops – Special Extra

When I first got contacts back in seventh grade, I was told not to use redness drops. I’m a rule follower (most of the time), so I can’t bring myself to use these. I don’t suffer from red eyes anyway, so I’ll be finding a friend to give these to.

Another season. Another excellent POPSUGAR Must Have Winter 2018 box! This season’s box has a retail value of $385 plus the special extras. Wow! I’m always so impressed with the value and products packed in these boxes.

Bravo, POPSUGAR bravo!

Kate Spade New York – New York Photo Album – Retail Value $20

This is the first item I saw peeking out of my box and is, by far, my favorite!  I absolutely LOVE Kate Spade!

I’m sure this beauty will be making an appearance on Instagram in the near future!  Follow me (@pinkbowstwinkletoes) and never miss a post! 🙂

My mission for the next week or so is to gather and print lots of photos to fill my new album!

Stephanie Johnson – Camera Crossbody Bag – Retail Value $45

I love bags, but I’m not so sure that this one is for me!  I carry A LOT of nonsense in my purse and don’t like the idea of others being able to see all that!

A lot of stadiums are requiring people to bring clear, see-through bags to sporting events now.  I’m wondering if this bag will make the cut even though it’s red?  I don’t go to that many sporting events, but I will take this bag to my next one if it meets the regulations!

Sunnylife, LLC – Eco Lunch Box Watermelon – Retail Value $18

How adorable is this little watermelon?!  I received an eco lunchbox from POPSUGAR a while ago and absolutely loved it!

These boxes are perfect for keeping your chips and sandwich from getting crushed when throwing your lunch in a tote bag!

Thrive Causemetics – Brilliant Eye Brightener in Stella – Retail Value $24

How gorgeous is this turquoise packaging?!  I love it!

I also love the champagne-y color of this highlighter.  It looks beautiful on my skin tone!  I added some in the corners of my eyes this morning, and they brightened right up!

The packaging says you can use this highlighter as an eyeliner and eye shadow as well.  I’ll be trying it out as a shadow tomorrow morning.  Champagne is one of my go-to colors, so I know it’ll look fantastic!

Smashmallow – Cinnamon Churro – Retail Value $4

Gourmet marshmallows?! Yes, please!!

The marshmallows smell amazing and taste pretty good too.  I’ve eaten four (one serving size for those who care) by themselves and found them to be quite delightful!   If I can find some hot chocolate in my pantry, I’m going to add them to that next!

Velvet Eyewear – $25 Gift Card

I don’t like like it when gift cards are included in my boxes.  Very rarely do the websites have products that you can buy with the gift cards alone.  Velvet Eyewear has a few pairs of sunglasses for $45-$65 but the majority were $150 and above.

I already have two pairs of nice sunglasses, so I won’t be spending this card.

IMG_0183

The total retail value for this month’s box is $111 not including the gift card.  That value isn’t too high, but it’s still great for a $40 box!

My favorite items this month are the Kate Spade photo album and the Sunnylife lunch box!
