FabFitFun: Fall 2017 Edition

Do you FabFitFun? I didn’t for a long time, but then the one millionth advertisement finally got me to give it a try.

I got my box yesterday. This is technically my third box, and I’m on the fence if I’ll keep it up after my subscription is up. I also recently ordered Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style for Fall 2017. I’m super intrigued by that. A little more expensive at $99 per box (if you don’t do the annual subscription) and fewer items, but the items in it seem more high quality. I guess we’ll see.

Anywho, back to FabFitFun – though I don’t find myself using every single thing in the box, I usually find a few things that I hold onto. The rest goes in the giveaway pile. This time around I feel like there is more in the keep pile than in the giveaway pile than there usually is.

This time around the box featured (forgive my shitty picture):

Molr Teeth Whitening Powder w/ toothbrush (not pictured)
Not pictured because I immediately pulled it out and used it. I’m super curious to see if this stuff works. I keep seeing ads for powders like this, but it’s kind of expensive and I didn’t deem it worth the money since I wasn’t convinced it would actually work. Now I get to try it out and see for myself. Yay!

Private Party “Gym & Juice” Gym Bag
Very cute little bag. Not sure how much I’ll use it since I already have a bag I use for the gym. I don’t like gym bags with dark interiors because then I can’t find anything. I prefer the contrast of a light color fabric. I’m sure I can find some other use for it though. Maybe a travel gym bag or something. Or it’ll end up in the big pile with my other reusable bags.

The Mer Sea Cozy Wrap
This was the second most exciting piece for me because I looooooove scarfs. I especially love a big squishy cozy scarf that feels like a blanket, which this one does. I travel a decent amount and I get cold easily. This will make a nice piece that can double as a scarf/travel blanket.

trèStiQue Matte Color & Shiny Balm Lip Crayon
With the exception of mascara and lipgloss, I don’t wear make-up so this one might get tossed in the giveaway pile if the color isn’t right. If it doesn’t make me look like a circus clown, I might keep it. I wish that FabFitFun could be customized more to almost entirely exclude cosmetics. I don’t mind the masks and the other stuff, but I will most likely never use or get excited about lipsticks, blush, eye make-up. I just don’t use that stuff.

The JetSet Diaries Beanie in Pink
I love a good hat in the Fall/Winter. This one is cute, but I feel like the drape in the back isn’t quite right. We’ll see if this one gets any use this season or ends up in the giveaway pile come Spring.

Coxet Wire Heart Ceramic Jewelry Holder
This is cute and will probably get some decent use in my house. I love something that is cute/display worth and that’s also useful. I already have a pretty J.Crew jewelry tray that I use religiously and a fun decorative hand that I use to display my rings. I like that this one stands up and that I can hang my earrings on it. I’ve been wearing a lot of fun dangly, earrings lately so this might become a staple piece on my shelf.

My TagAlongs Hot & Cold Gel Pack
I’m not a big gel pack user. I’ve had them in the past, used them once, forgot about them and then eventually threw them away. That may or may not happen with this one. I like that it’s pretty low profile (would be easy to pack without bulk) and can be used hot or cold. Would be good for travel. I just don’t have that many aches and pains though. At least not yet. #thankful

Whish Renewing Mud Mask
FabFitFun got me turned onto masks with my first box. They had this weird super wet mask that I used and loved. I’ve since bought the Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask and Quenching Mineral Mask. I heart them both. Obviously, you need to do what’s right for your skin type, but if your skin can take it, I love a good mask. I’ll definitely give this one a try.

Deco Miami Lavender Cuticle Oil
I already have some cuticle oil and don’t use it regularly. So what do you think will likely happen with this? To be fair, I’ll probably use it once or twice as an experiment and then forget about it. 

Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths (Sample)
Another item that I’ll probably toss in a travel bag and forget about. You never know. It might come in handy one day.

 

Add-ons

Shitty Photo #2. Sorry I was feeling lazy today and I generally take crap pictures. The lighting in my house is terrible.

If you don’t FabFitFun, you probably don’t know that there are add-ons. It might be stuff that was in an old box or other random stuff that you can tack onto your shipment for an additional fee. It’s just a way for them to get you to spend more money and I am that sucker.

This time around I got the following add-ons, which are not so artful displayed on my new Coxet Wire Heart Ceramic Jewelry Holder:

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Lip Butter
Do not ask me why I bought this? I already have way too many lip butters, glosses, etc. And honestly, the stuff I love best is Aquaphor Healing Ointment. I buy it in a little lip glosses sized tube and I use that sh*t on EVERYTHING. I’m like the dad in My Big Fat Greek Wedding with the windex. But anywho, I tried it. It smells good. It’s soft. It’ll be yet another thing that I toss into my giant purse.

A. Marie Jewelry Mimi Choker
Child of the 90s that I am, I keep seeing that the choker thing is coming back and thinking, “But why?” And then look at me, I went and bought one. This is more of the money wasting a$$hole in me than anything else. But you never know, I might wear it.

Sterling Forever Wishbone Necklace
This is pretty and I just had to have it. #moneywastinga$$hole is my middle name.
