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

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017

Hello, everyone!

My POPSUGAR Must Have box has arrived! Yay! Yay! My POPSUGAR and PLAY! boxes actually arrived on the same day this month. Talk about some serious happy mail!

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

The September box has some fall-ish vibes with a darker color palette! I’m really loving it!

Box Contents:

  • Hudson + Bleecker – Bonjour Smartphone Wallet – Dusty Rose
  • Figs & Rouge – Hydra Prime Light Reflective Brightening Primer & Illuminator
  • Buji Baja by Hat Attack – Coco Flower Pin
  • Richer Poorer – Wool Striped Nora Sock – Charcoal & Black
  • Lipstick Queen – Black Lace Rabbit Cream Blush
  • Pipsnacks – Kettle Pipcorn

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

Hudson + Bleecker – Bonjour Smartphone Wallet – Dusty Rose – Retail Value $47

I received some travel bags from Hudson + Bleecker in a previous POPSUGAR box and absolutely love them! I use the makeup bag from that set every single time I travel!

I have a lot of wallets, and I’m happy to add this beauty to the rotation. Inside it has four card slots, one longer, money slot, and a large, open space that will fit a cell phone, lipgloss, and a few other small items. Basically, this wallet will fit all of the essentials. Perfection!

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

Figs & Rouge – Hydra Prime Light Reflective Brightening Primer & Illuminator – Retail Value $45

Primer (along with mascara) is one of those frequent fliers in the world of subscription boxes. I’m not complaining though! I love that I never need to buy mascara or primer! 🙂

I switch back and forth between illuminating and smoothing primers depending on the day. The Figs & Rouge primer looks rather dark when it comes out of the bottle but goes on very sheer. I’ve been using it for several days now and like the results. I’ll be using this primer until the bottle is empty!

 

Buji Baja by Hat Attack – Coco Flower Pin – Retail Value $17

This little, flower pin is just adorable! My winter coat is navy (and I don’t mix navy and black), so I need to figure out a cute place to pin this baby!

POPSUGAR suggests attaching it to your purse, coat (already ruled this one out), blouse, or bracelet.  I’ll have to see if it looks cute with one of my fall purses!

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

Richer Poorer – Wool Striped Nora Sock – Charcoal & Black – Retail Value $22

SOCKS!!! I love socks! Especially wool ones! Living in central Florida, wool socks are hard to come by. We rarely have days that are cold enough to warrant wool socks. But you can bet that I’ll be wearing these bad boys on the cold days we do have! 🙂

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

Lipstick Queen – Black Lace Rabbit Cream Blush – Retail Value $25

Two beauty items in one month? Yes, please!

I love the Lipstick Queen color-changing lipstick from the May box, so I was super pumped to see a color-changing blush in this month’s box.

The blush starts out black and then turns to a berry shade once it’s been applied to your skin. The intensity of the berry is determined by your skin’s pH. I love beauty products that adjust to each user!

Since this is a cream blush, I ‘ve been applying it with my fingers. I’ve been taking my middle finger, swirling it around the compact, dabbing the product on the apples of my cheeks, and then smoothing it out with my other fingers. I also use a stippling brush to further smooth out the “edges” of the blush on my cheeks.

This berry hue is going to be just perfect for fall! Next, maybe POPSUGAR will give me a lipstick to round out my fall, beauty look! 😉

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

Pipsnacks – Kettle Pipcorn – Retail Value $4.99

You know what’s better than the POPSUGAR snacks each month? FULL-SIZE POPSUGAR snacks!! I absolutely love it when POPSUGAR sends a full-size package of their featured snack. That way, you can really enjoy the snack and figure out if it’s something you’d like to purchase again in the future.

You know what else I love? Kettle Corn! I love the sweet. I love the salty.  I just love it!

Also, that’s not a typo above. This product really is called “Pipsnacks” and “Pipcorn” because the corn is actually teeny tiny and pipsqueak size. So cute and fun to eat!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2017

The total retail value for the September box is $160.99! That’s pretty fantastic!

I love all of this month’s products and have already started using half of them. The other half I will begin using very soon!

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello, everyone!

How is it that another month of 2017 has already gone by? It’ll be 2018 before we know it! Geez!!

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

I went with a slightly more vibrant purple palette for this month’s freebie! It coordinates quite nicely if I do say so myself! 🙂

I’ve been making functional printables for over a year now, so if you’re interested, here’s the freebie from last year, September Functional Planner Stickers 2016! The 2016 and 2017 theme colors are exactly the same, so if you want to use the printables together, they match perfectly.

September 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 September Functional Sticker Sheet 2017.

PLAY! by Sephora Review: September 2016

Hello everyone!

My PLAY! by Sephora box arrived a few days ago, and I can’t wait to share all my new goodies with you!

img_3222

I love Sephora’s packaging!  They always knock it out of the park!

img_3234

September’s theme: The Unbasic Basics

img_3237

As you know, I love me some product doodles! 🙂

I love reading all of the tips and tricks that Sephora includes in their PLAY!BOOK each month!  I also enjoy watching their monthly video.  Check it out!

img_3282

Box Contents:

  • Sephora Collection – Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Gel
  • Ole Henriksen – Sheer Transformation
  • Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner in Trooper
  • Atelier Cologne – Sud Magnolia
  • Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector
  • Drawstring bag

img_3247

Sephora Collection – Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell

Lip products are one of my favorite things to sample, so I was very excited when I pulled this out of the fabric bag!

Love Spell is a very light, natural pink color.  I think it might be a little too natural for me though.  When applied, I can’t see much difference between this lip color and my lips!  Maybe I’m not applying enough or maybe this just isn’t lip color for me!  We will see!

img_3262

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Gel

I know tons of people are all about brows right now, but I’m not one of them. I don’t actually do anything to my eyebrows except pluck them.

My sister-in-law has been wanting to try some Anastasia products, so I knew she’d want to give this gel a try.  I gave it to her several days ago, and she was so excited!  I’m sure she’ll get way more use out of it than I would have.

img_3264

Ole Henriksen – Sheer Transformation

I received some Ole Henriksen makeup wipes several years ago in another subscription service, but unfortunately, they were so strongly scented that I couldn’t use them.

Thankfully, this moisturizer is unscented, and I like it quite a bit. It’s lightweight, and I have no worries about it irritating my skin.  That’s always a plus!

img_3258

Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner in Trooper

As a mentioned last month, I’m not a big eye liner user.

I love the idea of liquid liners, but I’m just to shaky and unpredictable to be trusted with them.  I actually have a few liquid liners, and when I’m feeling really brave, I do bring them out and give them a whirl.  That doesn’t happen often though!

Like the Anastasia product above, I gave this liner to my sister-in law!  She tried it out right away.  She wasn’t in love with the thickness though.  She would’ve preferred a little thicker of a line from the get go.  However, she did love how much control she had over the application!

img_3252

Atelier Cologne – Sud Magnolia

This is the second Atelier Cologne I’ve received since subscribing to PLAY! in May.  I like the brand and the scents, but I’m surprised that they repeated a brand so soon.

I love that they include a postcard with their fragrance.  That really adds a little something to the product and packaging!

img_3241

Living Proof – Perfect Hair Day Night Cap Overnight Perfector

I’ve really been enjoying new hair products recently, so I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box.  One huge plus to this product is that you can use it with damp hair.  I shower at night, so I don’t like products that require you to wash them off/out in the morning!

Perfect Hair Day reminds me quite a bit of Don’t Despair! Repair, which I’ve now received in both POPSUGAR and PLAY!  I love Don’t Despair! Repair, so I’m quite alright with the products being similar!

img_3269

I always look forward to the drawstring bag each month!  I love every new design!

The little, pink lipstick is just too cute! 🙂

img_3278

I did end up giving away two of this month’s products, but I’m okay with that!  I really like the products that I’m left with!

If you haven’t noticed, I am a little particular about some things, so I do end up giving quite a few subscription box items away every few months!  My friends always enjoy it when I declutter! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: September 2016

Hello everyone!

My September POPSUGAR Must Have box has arrived!  This month’s items are fantastic, and I can’t wait to share them with you!

img_3086

To receive a fun box of goodies each month like I do, click here.

Every month, POPSUGAR chooses a few words to describe the feeling and theme of the box.  September’s theme words are glamorous, eye-catching, indulgent, bold, timeless, and sartorial.

img_3130

Box Contents:

  • Jack & Lucy – Bicoastal Wide Brim Hat
  • NCLA – MANI-ER Tool Kit
  • Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
  • Flint – Lint Roller
  • Smith & Cult – Lip Lacquer in The Warning
  • The Gluten Free Bites – Dark Chocolate Coconut Bliss

img_3176

Jack & Lucy – Bicoastal Wide Brim Hat – Retail Value $58

POPSUGAR sneak peeked this hat in an email earlier this month!  I wasn’t quite sure what to think when I saw the sneak peek.

I don’t typically wear hats, so I’m not sure how much use I’ll get out of this product.  My mom said it looked cute on me though.  Perhaps I’ll have to experiment with it in the fall!

img_3171

Here’s a photo from a different angle.  As you may be able to see, there’s a little indention in the hat.  The little indent adds some interest and intrigue!  There’s also a pretty, black ribbon separating the brim from the top of the hat!  Too cute!!

img_3104

NCLA – MANI-ER Tool Kit – Retail Value $16

I love little nail kits like this.  I have a similar one that’s purse-shaped that I’ve had for years!  It lives by my bed and also travels with me whenever I leave town!  Now that I have a second kit, maybe I’ll keep one in my suitcase permanently.

img_3108

Here are the tools included in the kit.  It came with a nice variety!

img_3119

Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask – Retail Value $36

This hair mask is what I’m most excited about in this box!  I received a sample of it in my PLAY! by Sephora box a few months ago, and have been in love with it ever since!  It’s been in my Sephora shopping cart for weeks now.  Thank goodness I didn’t buy it!

Don’t Despair, Repair! smells amazing and works really well for me!

After washing my hair, I apply a little bit of this and then go about my shower.  When I’m finished showering, I rinse out the mask and then comb my hair!  The results are fantastic!

Following the mask, my hair is very smooth and hydrated! I LOVE it! 🙂

img_3103

Flint – Lint Roller – Retail Value $9.99

I’m a linty mess, so this product is perfect for me!

I try to remember to lint roll myself, but I usually forget! Whoopsie!!

img_3146

What makes this lint roller so unique and desirable is that it is retractable!  Simply twist the bottom and the sticky lint roller appears!

One thing I hate about lint rollers, is that they stick to EVERYTHING! This roller is perfect because the annoying “stick to everything” factor has been eliminated!

I can definitely see myself packing this lint roller and taking it with me on my next trip!  Hopefully it will allow me to be somewhat less of a linty mess! 🙂

img_3098

Smith & Cult – Lip Lacquer in The Warning – Retail Value $22

I love when POPSUGAR includes lip products!  They’re one of my favorite beauty items to sample!

This lip lacquer looks very red in the container, but luckily isn’t nearly as red when applied to my lips!  It’s a beautiful, natural pinky red color.  It’s a tad bit sticky right after you apply it, but the stickiness goes away pretty quickly!

All in all, a great lip product!  I will be adding it to my lineup! 🙂

img_3093

The Gluten Free Bites – Dark Chocolate Coconut Bliss – Retail Value $4.99

As you know, I always look forward to POPSUGAR’s snack each month.  However, this month’s snack scared me quite a bit at first.

I’m not a gluten-free person.  I eat lots of gluten, and I enjoy it quite a bit!  So I was skeptical when I saw this gluten-free snack in my box.  Surprisingly (at least for me), these little chocolate, coconut balls are AMAZING!!  They are so good that I’ve already eaten half of the package.

One thing I don’t like is the price.  There are not enough little bites in this bag to justify spending $5 on it.  At least not in my opinion!  I’m happy to eat them if someone gives them to me though!! 🙂

img_3137

The total retail value of this month’s box is $146.98.  That’s not too shabby!

I love everything in this box!  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the hat yet, but I still thinks it’s very cute!

September Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – September 2015

Hi everyone!

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

IMG_5062To receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_5065Box Contents:

  • Hudson+Bleecker – Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio
  • Kris Nations – “XO” Stud Earrings
  • Too Faced Cosmetics – Brow Envy
  • Briogeo Rosarco – Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray
  • NCLA – So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil
  • Nourish Snacks – Almond to Cherries

IMG_5079Hudson+Bleecker – Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio – Retail Value $42

I love this travel bag set!  It comes with a TSA-friendly clear pouch and then two drawstring bags for shoes and intimates.

IMG_5082I’ll probably end up using the clear bag for sunscreens and the two patterned bags for my shoes.  I absolutely hate it when the bottoms of my shoes touch my clothes in my suitcase, so these are perfect for me!

IMG_5091Kris Nations – “XO” Stud Earrings – Retail Value $35

I love these earrings, and the packaging is pretty great too!  The little jar is glass not plastic, which makes the packaging that much nicer!

These would be perfect for a gift, so I think I’m going to save them!

IMG_5071Too Faced Cosmetics – Brow Envy – Retail Value $39

I absolutely LOVE Too Faced products, so I was pretty excited when I saw that they were going to be featured in the September box.  I just wish they’d given out an eye shadow palette instead of this brow kit.

I know eyebrows are all the rage right now, but I would’ve preferred a different product.

IMG_5074The palette comes with two shades of brow powder, a highlighter, setting wax, tweezers, a brush, and a spoolie.

I don’t ever do anything besides pluck my brows, so I won’t be getting much use out of this product. 🙁

IMG_5088Briogeo Rosarco – Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray – Retail Value $20

I love trying new leave-in conditioners, so I was pretty excited when I saw this in my box!

This conditioner is way more watery than I expected and more watery than other leave-in conditioners I’ve used in the past.  I feel like I have to use a ton of it to get the silky texture I’m used to getting with other conditioners.

Even though it’s watery, it smells pretty great!

IMG_5076NCLA – So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil – Retail Value $18

I haven’t used many cuticle products in the past, so I’m not exactly sure what this is going to do for me.

I’ve been using it for several days now.  I haven’t seen any results, but it smells pretty great!!

IMG_5085Nourish Snacks – Almond to Cherries – Retail Value $2

This little snack looks awesome!

I love almonds and cherries, so it is perfect for me!

I’m going to pack it in my backpack and take it to class with me tomorrow!

IMG_5065The September POPSUGAR box has a total retail value of $156!  How awesome is that?!

Allure Beauty Box Review – September 2015

Hi everyone!

IMG_4918_2It’s time for my monthly Beauty Box review!

IMG_4920_2Each box comes with a magazine, which gives more information on the featured products.

IMG_4923The September box came with seven products!  Wow!  That’s the most I’ve ever received in an Allure box!

Box Contents:

  • Tangle Teezer
  • Pixi by Petra – Glow Tonic
  • Alterna – Replenishing Moisture Milk
  • Erno Laszlo – Firmarine Bar Soap
  • Jane Iredale – Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener
  • Soap & Glory – Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss
  • Kaplan MD – Cellular Rejuvenating Concentrate

IMG_4925Tangle Teezer

I was pretty skeptical when I saw this in my box.  I don’t typically like the hair tools that I receive.

Funnily enough, I absolutely love this thing!! It works SO well and doesn’t break my hair at all!

I do have one complaint though.  I’ve been using it when I get out of the shower, and between my soaking wet hair and my leave in conditioner, the Tangle Teezer can get pretty slippery!! I’ve dropped it on a few occasions!  Oh well! I’ll quickly get over that!  It cuts my hair combing time in half when I get out of the shower!  That’s amazing!!!

IMG_4928_2Pixi by Petra – Glow Tonic

I’ve heard great things about this product!  My friend, Lindsey, was telling me that it’s very similar to the Clinique Clarifying Lotion that I use everyday.  Since it’s just like my everyday product, I’m going to save this for the next time I travel!

IMG_4942Alterna – Replenishing Moisture Milk

I love this conditioner!  It works really well and isn’t too heavy!

I’ve received other Alterna products in subscription boxes before and they’re all great!

This is the conditioner I was using when I kept dropping my Tangle Teezer!  These two must be in cahoots! 🙂

IMG_4933_2Erno Laszlo – Firmarine Bar Soap

This is the cutest bar of soap I have ever seen!  It’s tiny!

I’m going to save this product for travel as well!  It will fit perfectly into my travel toiletries case!

IMG_4935_2Jane Iredale – Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener

The mini magazine says this primer is supposed to smell like fresh orange juice.  I don’t smell the oranges.  I smell a mixed drink!

I’ve used this primer several times, and I like it.  I just don’t like it as much as the Benefit Porefessional I use everyday.

IMG_4932Soap & Glory – Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss

When I first put this lip gloss on, I liked it.  The color wasn’t great but it wasn’t terrible either.  About 10 minutes after applying the gloss, the burning began!  I understand the way plumping lip glosses work, but the burning was so bad (and not worth the results) that I had to wipe the lip gloss off!

I definitely won’t be using this in the future, but I will see if any of my friends would like to try it!

IMG_4939Kaplan MD – Cellular Rejuvenating Concentrate

This is another item that I’ll be using for travel.  I already use a serum at night, so instead of hauling my large jar with me when I travel, I’ll just take this mini one!

IMG_5025_2Aside from the burning lip gloss, I’d say that this month’s Allure Beauty Box was a success!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – September 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly Maven review!

IMG_4715If you’d like to receive fun boxes each month like I do, click here!

IMG_4739Box Contents:

  • Alison – Classic with a Twist – Sweet Almond Soft Focus
  • Rayma – Classic with a Twist – Italian Plum Crème
  • Julep – Signature Crème
  • Light On Your Lips – Wink – Tea Rose Crème

IMG_4729Alison – Classic with a Twist – Sweet Almond Soft Focus

I was pretty skeptical of Alison when I first saw the polish color.  After testing it out on one of my fingernails, I think it’ll be a great neutral for me!

I’m going to paint it on my fingernails when I get some free time tomorrow!

Rayma – Classic with a Twist – Italian Plum Crème

This is a beautiful polish color!  Unfortunately, it’s a little too dark and fally for Florida right now!  I’ll definitely be using it in a month or two though!

IMG_4721Julep – Signature Crème

Julep included their new signature crème polish in my box this month!  How nice! 🙂

This pretty purple polish is the same exact shade of the boxes they ship out each month! That’s rather clever of them!

IMG_4731Light On Your Lips – Wink – Tea Rose Crème

I love Julep’s lipsticks, so I was super excited when I saw that they were launching some new fall colors for September!

I was really busy during the Maven Window a few weeks ago and didn’t carve out enough time to pick out a lipstick shade.  I ended up with the Classic with a Twist default shade and it doesn’t quite work for me. 🙁

IMG_4736I have very fair skin, and this lipstick is quite nude.  I’m not sure if you can tell how nude it is in the picture but it’s super nude.  When I put it on, my lips just kind of disappear!  That’s not good!  I’ll see if any of my friends want it!

The next time a Maven Window comes around, I’m going to stop everything I’m doing and pay attention to the makeup shades!!

IMG_4717Lastly, we have this month’s quote and coupon!

Free polish?! I’m about it! 🙂

Ipsy Review – September 2014

Hi everyone!!

It’s time for my monthly Ipsy review!!

DSCN3157If you’re not an Ipsy subscriber and want to be, click here!

DSCN3161The September theme is “Street Style.”

I’m not liking the September theme or makeup bag at all!

If you know me at all, you’d know that “Street” is most certainly NOT my style!

DSCN3166This month’s bag featured five products!

  • NYX – Hot Singles Eye Shadow
  • Pacifica – Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil
  • Crown Brush – Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush
  • Hikari – Lipstick
  • Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

DSCN3192NYX – Hot Singles Eye Shadow – Arrogance

I love eyeshadow, but I don’t ever see myself using this purple color! There were 11 possible color options, and I lucked out with purple! Yay me!!

DSCN3188Pacifica – Natural Water-Proof Eye Pencil – Fringe

I’ve never tried the Pacifica brand, so I’m interested to see how well it works!

It seems to create to a nice line but also smears quite easily.

DSCN3179Crown Brush – Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush

I’ve been wanting a crease brush, so I was really excited to see one in my bag this month!

I used it this morning, and it worked really well!

DSCN3176Hikari – Lipstick – Cabernet

I really like the color of this lipstick, but I don’t really like the formula.

When I tried it on, it seemed pretty dry even with lip balm underneath.

DSCN3170Briogeo – Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

I don’t have much use for a repairing hair mask, so this product will probably be given to a friend!

DSCN3197For me, September was mostly a month of misses!

The only product I love is the eyeshadow brush.  The eyeliner isn’t horrible, but it’s also not fantastic.

I’m hoping October brings much better things than September!

How about you? What did you think of your September Ipsy bag?!

Julep Maven Review & Coupon – September 2014

Hi everyone!

I’m back and ready to share my September Julep Maven box with you!

If you’re not a Maven and would like to be, click here!!

DSCN2967I love finding these little purple boxes in my mailbox!

DSCN2970Here’s my September box!! It came with two little hard candies!

DSCN2976

September’s theme is “Art Walk.”

This month featured a lot of pretty, muted nail colors.  Perfect for the fall!!

DSCN2986Nail Polish:

Quinn – Classic with a Twist – Charcoal Purple Satin

I’d say this polish is more navy and less purple.  Either way, it is absolutely perfect!! I used it last week and loved it!

Lupita – Classic with a Twist – Ripe Rhubarb Crème

This is the perfect pinky red! My nails are currently painted this color, and they are gorgeous (if I do say so myself!)

DSCN2990Plush Pout Lip Crayon – Cardinal Red Crème

I was daring this month and chose the red color!  I’m typically a pink girl, but I wanted a change!

DSCN2997The red is really nice!  I don’t know how often I’ll use it, but I’m glad to have it!

The moisture core is also a fantastic!

DSCN2979Once again, Julep has gifted us with a coupon!!  Just like the previous months, this code is good for two uses!

What did you get in your September box? Do you love it too?
