POPSUGAR Must Have Review: August 2017

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

Hello, hello!

August isn’t QUITE over yet, so I have just enough time to sneak in my POPSUGAR Must Have review for the month!

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

POPSUGAR celebrated their 5th anniversary this month, so this box is special to them and has a slightly celebratory theme!

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

Box contents:

  • Pastel – Cheers Lacquered Tray
  • First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask
  • Dogeared – Friendship Bracelet with Small Open Heart
  • Meri Meri – Gold Glitter Candles
  • Fringe Studio – Free Spirit Journal
  • Goodie Girl Cookies – Chocolate Chunk
  • Shoptiques.com – $25 Gift Card

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

Pastel – Cheers Lacquered Tray – Retail Value $28

How adorable is this tray?! It reminds me a little of Kate Spade. I can see it on the classiest of bar carts or at a New Year’s Eve party!

I don’t know how I’m going to use this tray yet, but I know I will! It’s way too cute to go unused!! <3

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

First Aid Beauty – 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask – Retail Value $38

I’m always a little wary of face masks because of my sensitive skin. Surprisingly enough, this mask agrees with me! So far I’ve used it once and plan on using it again tonight!

The instructions say the mask can be used up to three times a week. Just to be on the safe side, I’m only going to use it one or two.

The mask is way thicker than I expected it to be. The gel texture is nice though. Very refreshing! It also has a slightly tingly sensation to it that I quite enjoy!

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

Dogeared – Friendship Bracelet with Small Open Heart – Retail Value $34

This little bracelet is just darling. I don’t wear this type of jewelry too often though, so I’m going to save this cutie to give as a gift!

I’ve given POPSUGAR items as gifts in the past, and my friends always LOVE them!

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

Meri Meri – Gold Glitter Candles – Retail Value $7.50

I think these might just be the prettiest birthday candles I’ve ever seen!

I turn 24 this year and these beauties are definitely going to be on top of my cake!! 🙂

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

Fringe Studio – Free Spirit Journal – Retail Value $16

If you know much about me, then you know that I love a good notebook! I have an extensive collection of May Designs and Rifle Paper Co. notebooks on my shelf right now! I am more than happy to add this rose gold beauty to the bunch!

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

Look at the gorgeous rose gold pages! <3

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

Goodie Girl Cookies – Chocolate Chunk – Retail Value $2.95

You all know how much I love a good snack!

I devoured these bad boys (all eight of them) during the Game of Thrones series finale! I dipped them in some milk and went to town while rooting for Dany and Jon! 😉

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

Shoptiques.com – $25 Gift Card

I don’t typically use the gift cards that come in my POPSUGAR box. However, this month I actually am! Shoptiques is a website that sells merchandise from thousands of boutiques across thousands of cities.

Right now, I have a Lilly Pulitzer tumbler and some wooden cutlery in my cart. I’ll be pulling the trigger on that purchase as soon as I finish this blog post!

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

The total retail value of the August box is $151.45. That’s not too shabby at all!

August Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

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

Hello, Planner Friends!

August is right around the corner, so it’s time for my monthly, functional printable release!

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

I went with a diamond, slightly geometric theme this month!

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

August 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

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.

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: July 2017

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

Hello!

It’s POPSUGAR Must Have review time!  I’ve been stalking the mailbox for days, and my box has finally arrived!

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

The July box has a fun, summer theme just like the June box. You could take this entire box down to the beach with you!

Box contents:

  • Ocean Tribe by Turkish T – Kilim Towel
  • BAN.DŌ – Sip Sip Tumbler
  • SUPERGOOP! – Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50
  • Tarte Cosmetics – Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara
  • Sister of Los Angeles – California Fireplace Matches
  • Snyder’s of Hanover – Wholey Cheese! Smoked Gouda

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

Ocean Tribe by Turkish T – Kilim Towel – Retail Value $49

This towel is adorable! The fabric is super soft and the design is great.  That fringe really makes it though!

POPSUGAR suggests you use the towel for picnics or at a concert.  It’s big enough for me to do those things but probably not big enough for me to do them with friends!

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

BAN.DŌ – Sip Sip Tumbler – Retail Value $14

I’ve admired BAN.DŌ products from afar for a while now and am happy to finally own one! I use tumblers every signle day, so I’m pumped to add another one to my collection.  In fact, I’m drinking from this new one while I write this post!

Something about this design reminds me of Slurpees.  Anyone else? I don’t know if it’s the color or the font. It just screams Slurpee to me!

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

I love the road trip suggestion they give for this tumbler. That’s so fun! 🙂

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

SUPERGOOP! – Super Power Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50 – Retail Value $19

I’m a rather fair-skinned girl, so sunscreen is a must for me in the summertime. SPF 50 happens to be my SPF of choice so this is a win from all angles!

Every August, I go on a beach trip with my family, and this little guy will be coming with me this year!

I’ve never seen a mousse sunscreen before, so I’m very intrigued. I think the application process is going to be very fun. I’ll keep you posted!

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

Tarte Cosmetics – Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara – Retail Value $23

Yippee for another Tarte product! I think this is the third Tarte item I’ve received since subscribing to POPSUGAR over two years ago.  🙂

This mascara comes in both a waterproof and a regular version. I used the regular version years ago and loved it! So far, I’m loving the waterproof version too!

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

Sister of Los Angeles – California Fireplace Matches – Retail Value $10

POPSUGAR thinks that these matches would be great for a bonfire and s’mores, and I have to agree. I’m a HUGE fan of s’mores!

I don’t light too many fires though, so it’ll probably be a good while before I strike up one of these. I will definitely use them at some point but probably just for lighting candles! 🙂

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

Snyder’s of Hanover – Wholey Cheese! Smoked Gouda – Retail Value $3.69

As you know, I’m all about the POPSUGAR snacks! I espcially love it when the package size is large! This month’s snack didn’t disappoint either.

These little guys are like fancier Cheez-its.  YUM!

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

The retail value of the July box is $118.69.  That’s pretty low for POPSUGAR but is still great since the purchse price of this box is only $40.

I will use every single item from this month’s box.  I can’t remember the last time I said that!

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

Hello, Planner Friends!

How many of you moved into your new Erin Condren LifePlanner this week?! I sure did! I’m loving the painted petals this year. They’re so very fun!

I say this every month, but this year really is flying by! It’s already half over. My goodness!

July Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

For this month’s functional freebie, I played around with textures and created an inky, watercolor look. I added in some darker navy tones along with a little bit of dark teal. I love how it all turned out!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: June 2017

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

Hello, hello!

Subscription box delivery day is one of my favorite days of the month! Between this box and my other two, I have three very exciting days that are guaranteed each month!

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

The June box is all about the beach.  The theme words for the month are “beach read, swim, waves, breeze, mermaids, and palm trees.”

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

Box Contents:

  • Billabong – Aloha Forever Trucker Hat
  • Captain Blankenship – Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray
  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
  • Aloha Collection – Mid-Size Ocean Coco Palms Pouch
  • NCLA – So Rich — Mermaid Tears
  • Belgian Boys – Mini Cookie Stash
  • Meri Meri – Blue and White Party Straws
  • Starbucks Frappuccino – Coffee Drink

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

Billabong – Aloha Forever Trucker Hat – Retail Value $17.95

If you know anything about me at all, I’m sure you’ve figured out that this hat is not exactly my style.  I got a monogrammed baseball cap for Christmas last year, which I love.  This trucker hat has a little bit of a different vibe to it!

I’ll be giving this hat to someone who will get a lot more use out of it than I will.

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

Captain Blankenship – Mermaid Sea Salt Hair Spray – Retail Value $24

I told you last week that it wouldn’t be summer if I didn’t receive a sea salt spray in a subscription box! It must be summer because I’ve received two in the last week!

I gave the last sea salt spray to my sister-in-law.  I’m not sure yet who’ll receive this one!

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

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – Retail Value $26

I read a little bit (sometimes A LOT) each day, so I’m always looking for a new book! This one looks like a great beach read (go figure!) I’m going to the beach in August, so I think I’ll save it to read then!

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

Aloha Collection – Mid-Size Ocean Coco Palms Pouch – Retail Value $36

I’m a bag lady from way back.  I have so many bags and pouches it’s a little ridiculous! I love them though!

The one thing missing from my extensive bag collection is a wet bag. The tag says “stow damp items / keep dry things dry.”  Maybe I’ll pack my new book in this bag when I take it to the beach in August!

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

NCLA – So Rich — Mermaid Tears – Retail Value $18

This cuticle oil smells incredible! It has a subtle honeysuckle scent that’s just delightful!

I don’t have problems with my cuticles but adding this oil to my hand/nail routine couldn’t hurt.

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

Belgian Boys – Mini Cookie Stash – Retail Value $0.99

You know how much I love POPSUGAR’s snacks each month! These cookies did not disappoint! I just wish the bag had been a little bigger! 🙂

Starbucks Frappuccino – Coffee Drink – Retail Value $2.19

I love Starbucks iced coffee! I buy it buy the jug from the dairy section at my grocery store each week. Since I love the regular iced coffee (and Starbucks in general), I was very excited that this Frappuccino drink was included in my box this month!

I feel old when I say this, but I found the Frappuccino to be way too sweet! I used to drink Frappuccinos (from the actual Starbucks store) all the time and loved them.  I think the liquid, grocery versions are so much sweeter than the real thing. I tried diluting this sweet treat with more iced coffee and milk but couldn’t get the sweetness down! In the future, I’ll stick to the regular iced coffee!

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

Meri Meri – Blue and White Party Straws – Retail Value $5.95

Out of all the items in this month’s box, these paper straws are my FAVORITE!!! If you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should! @pinkbowstwinkletoes) then you’ve probably seen glimpses of my extensive paper straw collection!

Paper straws are so fun and are perfect for photo props! These cuties will definitely be making an appearance on the PBTT Instagram account soon!

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

The total retail value of the June box is $131.08. That’s not too shabby!

It’s safe to say that this wasn’t my best month as a POPSUGAR Must Have subscriber. That’s okay though. I can’t love everything they send out! I am eagerly awaiting next month’s box though!

June Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hello everyone!

Another month of 2017 has flown right by!

June Functional Planner Stickers: Free Printable - Pink Bows &amp; Twinkle Toes

A new month means a new functional freebie!

I love the rich greenish blue color of June in the Erin Condren LifePlanner! I thought it was the perfect time to play with a tropical leaf motif.  I haven’t made leaves like this before, but I love the simplicity of the design and how they turned out! 🙂

PLAY! by Sephora Review – July 2016

Hello everyone!

My PLAY! by Sephora box has arrived, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

IMG_1551

Popsicles!! Nothing says summer like Popsicles!

IMG_1584

The July theme is “Effortless Summer.” Sounds great to me!

IMG_1587

As always, the PLAY! BOOK is full of tons of tips and tricks for this month’s products.

IMG_1561

Box Contents:

  • NEST Fragrances – Citrine
  • First Aid Beauty – Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay
  • Ouai – Wave Spray
  • Smashbox – Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer
  • beautyblender – blotterazzi
  • Too Faced – Soleil Matte Bronzer – Chocolate
  • Drawstring Bag

IMG_1580

NEST Fragrances – Citrine

Unlike like last month’s fragrance sample, this one is a little too much for me.  I like how it smells in passing, but it’s too fragrant for me to wear.  No big deal though!  I never expect to like the perfumes!

IMG_1566

First Aid Beauty – Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay

I’ve been using this cleanser for several days now with my Clarisonic.  It works well and smells great! It has a minty almost menthol scent to it!

Although I like it, I don’t think I’ll be switching from my usual face soap.  I will continue to use it until I finish it.  I might even throw it in my travel bag for my next trip!

IMG_1574

Ouai – Wave Spray

I’m not a huge fan of beach spray hair products, but I gave this one the benefit of the doubt and tried it out!

You can use it on either damp or dry hair.  I tried it out on my dry hair and wasn’t in love with the results!  It just kind of looked like I hadn’t brushed my hair that day! YUCK!

IMG_1569

Smashbox – Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer

I use a pore minimizing primer almost every day, so I was quite pleased to see this in my box!  I typically use Benefit’s version but Smashbox’s is great too!

I’ve almost finished using the Becca primer from last month.  I’ll be adding this one into the mix as well!

IMG_1571

 

beautyblender – blotterazzi

I absolutely LOVE my beautyblender, so I was very excited to see one of their products in my box this month!

Blotterazzi is a blotting sponge that won’t disturb your makeup when removing oil.  I don’t have an overly oily face, but I do need to blot every now and then. I’ll be sticking this little sponge in my purse just for those occasions!

IMG_1576

Too Faced – Soleil Matte Bronzer – Chocolate

I mentioned last month, that I’m not a big fan of bronzers.  I don’t ever use them.  However, I can use powder bronzers as eye shadows, which is what I’m doing with this one.

One thing I absolutely love about this bronzer is the smell! It smells just like hot chocolate!  How yummy is that?! It’s funny to smell chocolate while applying your makeup, but it’s also kind of fun too! 🙂

IMG_1581

I think this drawstring bag is my favorite one to date!  I just love the pink Popsicle!

I’m still not sure what I’m going to do with all these bags!  I better think of something quick though!  I imagine there are quite a few more of them in my future!

IMG_1589

Aside from the funky wave spray and perfume sample, I’m very pleased with this month’s PLAY! box!  I know I’ll get great use out of many of these products!  The ones that I won’t use will be given to a friend of mine who loves trying out new things too!

Do you subscribe to PLAY! by Sephora?!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: July 2016

Hello everyone!

My POPSUGAR Must Have box has arrived, and I’m quite excited to share it with you!

IMG_1386

The July box is very summery! The watermelons on the info booklet look pretty yummy!

IMG_1501

Keeping with the summer theme, the inside of the booklet is a cheerful bright yellow!

IMG_1504

Box Contents:

  • Sachajuan – Hair in the Sun
  • House of Pom – Emoji Cocktail Napkins
  • Michael Stars – Porcelain Skinny Scarf in White
  • Pintrill – Pineapple Pin
  • Sunnylife – Inflatable Swan Drink Holder
  • European Wax Center – Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter in Pearl
  • Joe Chips – Classic Sea Salt Retro Potato Chips
  • Trove – Gift Card

IMG_1481

Sachajuan – Hair in the Sun – Retail Value $32

The info booklet says that this product will protect your hair color from UV rays.  Sounds fantastic to me!

I’ll definitely be using this to keep my highlights looking fresh while on my yearly beach trip in August!

IMG_1473

House of Pom – Emoji Cocktail Napkins – Retail Value $25

These napkins are very cute!  At first, I didn’t realize they were napkins because of how nice the fabric and stitching are.  I figured they were coasters.

IMG_1475

Here are all the different emojis. The bee and the cocktail are my favorites!

I don’t think I’d ever use these as napkins.  They’re way too nice!  I think they would be much cuter as framed decorations or something like that.

IMG_1489

Michael Stars – Porcelain Skinny Scarf in White – Retail Value $30

I love this scarf!  The pattern and its size are just too cute!  It’s very skinny and lightweight, which makes it perfect for the summer months!

I haven’t quite figured out what outfit I’m going to wear this with yet, but I’ve got a few ideas!

IMG_1486

Pintrill – Pineapple Pin – Retail Value $12

This little, pineapple pin is ADORABLE!  I have no idea what I’m going to do with it yet, but I want to find somewhere cute to put it!

IMG_1478

Sunnylife – Inflatable Swan Drink Holder – Retail Value $18

I laughed out loud when I saw this in my box! It reminds me a lot of all the funky pool floats that have been all over social media lately!

Just like the hair product above, I’m going to save this for my annual beach trip!  I think my family will get a kick out of it!

IMG_1496

European Wax Center – Oh My Brow! Brow Highlighter in Pearl – Retail Value $19

I didn’t realize that European Wax Center sold beauty products, so I was surprised to see this brow product in my box.

I’ve never tried any brow highlighters like this before, but I do own three or four eye shadow sticks that look just like this.

I’ve used the highlighter several times now, and it’s nice.  I wasn’t blown away by it, but I will be adding it into my rotation.  I’ll probably end up using it more as an eye shadow than a brow highlighter though.

IMG_1492

Joe Chips – Classic Sea Salt Retro Potato Chips – Retail Value $1.49

I was very excited to see these chips in my box.  As I’ve mentioned before, I really look forward to the little snack that POPSUGAR includes each month.

Unfortunately, I was not super impressed with these chips.  They needed a little more salt and seemed a little stale.  The bag was well within its date, so I’m not sure what the problem was there.

I did share a few of the chips with my puppy, Jane Jane, and she enjoyed them quite a bit!  🙂

IMG_1497

Trove – Gift Card – Retail Value $20

I looked on the Trove website and all the jewelry I saw was quite a bit more than $20.  Because of that, I probably won’t be using this gift card, but it was still nice for POPSUGAR to include it!

IMG_1394

The total retail value for the July box is $137.49 (not including the Trove gift card).  That’s pretty good! I will get use out of each of these products at some point in the next few months!

POPSUGAR Must Have Review: June 2016

Hi everyone!

My POPSUGAR Must Have box has arrived, and I’m quite excited to share it with you!

IMG_0816

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

IMG_0857

Box Contents:

  • Hat Attack – Neutral Diamonds – Printed Sarong
  • Sisters of Los Angeles – “Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener
  • Wild and Wolf – Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz
  • NCLA – Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer
  • Knock Knock – Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact
  • Pacifica – Underarm Deodorant Wipes
  • Pressels – Sriracha

IMG_0852

Hat Attack – Neutral Diamonds – Printed Sarong – Retail Value $58

The colors and print of this sarong are very pretty!  The neutral colors guarantee that it’ll match most bathing suits!

I don’t go to the beach very often, so I’ll probably use this as more of a fall/winter scarf rather than a sarong!  It’ll match quite a few of my cold-weather sweaters!

IMG_0830

Sisters of Los Angeles – “Cheers” Gold Bottle Opener – Retail Value $12

This bottle opener is so pretty!  The gold color is quite vibrant and the opener has great weight to it!

I don’t think I have a bottle opener, so this should come in handy!

IMG_0844

Wild and Wolf – Ridley’s Games Room “Who Am I?” Quiz – Retail Value $12.95

I’ve received games in previous POPSUGAR boxes, and I think they are fun inclusions!

“Who Am I?” is a trivia game with questions revolving around celebrities and other famous people.

IMG_0846

My friend and I played for a few minutes after I opened my Must Have box and thought it was fun!

This game would be great entertainment at a dinner party.  If you’re guests don’t want to play, then you can have a conversation about the gorgeous packaging instead!!

IMG_0832

 

NCLA – Born on the 4th Nail Lacquer – Retail Value $16

This festive, glitter nail polish was exclusively developed with POPSUGAR!  The four types of glitter in this polish makes it very fun!

If you can believe it, I actually already own a bottle of red, white, and blue glitter nail polish!  I’ll have to see if any of my patriotic friends would like to use this one! 🙂

IMG_0835

Knock Knock – Are You Ready (For Your Close-Up?) Compact – Retail Value $10

I haven’t had a good compact to carry in my purse for a while now.  I’m very pleased to receive this one!

I really like that this compact has two mirrors in it.  The top mirror is magnified and the bottom mirror is normal.  Very handy!

Pacifica – Underarm Deodorant Wipes – Retail Value $9

I had never heard of deodorant wipes before opening this month’s box.

These are scented wonderfully! Very light and fresh!

I’ve been using the wipes for the last two days now.  I haven’t engaged in any rigorous activity, so I haven’t been able to put them to an intense test.  From what I’ve seen, they work okay, but I won’t be switching from my usual Secret deodorant anytime soon!

Pressels – Sriracha – Retail Value $1.29

I think one of my favorite parts of receiving my POPSUGAR Must Have box is seeing what kind of snack they’ve included for the month!

I don’t like spicy things, so I was a little worried about these pretzels.  Surprisingly, I actually like them!  I can’t eat a ton at one time, but in small doses, they are quite tasty!

The total retail value for the June box is $119.24.  That’s definitely on the lower end for POPSUGAR boxes, but that’s okay! I’m quite pleased with this month’s products!

Do you subscribe to POPSUGAR Must Have?!

What do you think of the June box?

Summer Melons Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hi everyone!

I have a sweet and summery printable to share with you today!

These watermelons would be perfect for any summer picnics and parties you may have coming up!

Here’s a better look at the printable!  I love the way it turned out!  Pink and green are two of my favorite colors, so I’m quite partial to this printable!

With the new Erin Condren LifePlanners coming out next week, you can use this printable during any month in the new Neutral colored planner option.  How cool is that?!

I’ve watched several sneak peek videos, and I think I’m going with the colored option, but I really do like certain aspects of the neutral!  Are you buying one of the new planners?!  What style and color option are you thinking of getting?  I would love to hear your opinions on the new designs!

Before I give you the 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.

  • You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim this work as your own
