5 of my favorite things: An ode to my FabFitFun subscription box

The morning air is beginning to turn crisps. Stores have set out school supplies. Halloween and Fall decor are making their way to shelves near year. Starbucks has released the PSL and football season is in full effect.

Fall is on its way y’all and with the ushering in of my favorite season comes the Fall Box from FabFitFun. My next box is set to arrive in the next few days and while I am anxiously awaiting its delivery I decided to talk about my favorite things from the past few boxes.

  1. The Kitchen Herb Garden DIY Kit

As a trendy city dweller I do not have a garden. My apartment complex barely even has grass (seriously, we have like a front yard but there is actually no grass in the courtyard or anything like that) and I have an acute desire to garden. I had looked for a good indoor planting alternative and my prayers were answered when the Kitchen Herb Garden DIY kit showed up in my Spring 2017 box! The kit included seeds for mint (hint: mojitos were made), thyme and basil, three plastic pots, compost and a wooden trough to hold all the goodness. While I am not the best at planting it was a fun little experience and I will be expanding my herb collection. You can go to https://makerskit.com/ watch tutorials and see what other fun projects they have to offer.

  1. Bodipure Keratin Gloves & Socks

I am all about my hands and feet looking nice. With the hours that I work my full-time job, singing in a chorus, working on this blog and trying to be a devoted girlfriend and daughter I don’t make it to the nail shop as often as I would like. So when I received the Bodipure Keratin Gloves & Socks set in my box (I’m not gonna lie, I don’t remember which box this came in I was pumped. It came right on time as I was in need of a hand a nail pick me up. Once I finished with my session I felt smooth and luxurious. Who doesn’t want to feel that awesome?

  1. Realher Lipstick set in Deep Red

OMFG. I seriously cannot tell you how much I love a red lippie. I have so many different shades and finishes of red lipstick that it is sort of unreal. I will never turn down a tube of red lipstick so when I received the Realher Lipstick set in Deep Red in my Spring 2017 box, hunty I was too hype. The set includes the Realher Ladylove Liquid Lipstick, Realher Lip Plumping Lip Gloss and the Realher Expert Advice Lip Liner. I can say handsdown that I love the way this lipstick collection feels. A lot of red liptsicks can either leave you feeling dry or sticky but the Realher collection left great moisture, is super pigmented and even after eating did not need much reapplication. I love the black and white packaging. I love the phrases on the side of the products: I AM A FIGHTER. I AM TOUGH. BE YOURSELF. My only complaint is that the lip liner doesn’t seem full-sized. If I was purchasing the lip liner I would want a little more product. I only use it sparingly so I don’t run out quickly as what you see is definitely what you get.

  1. Spongelle Bulgarian Rose Body Wash Infused Buffer

Y’all. This buffer smells like heaven and makes your body feel like heaven as well. The buffer is infused with body wash so you don’t need anything extra unless, like myself, you use different product for you body and your lady bits. It is hypoallergenic, which is a bonus if you have skin conditions (I have eczema). The buffer also cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates and massages. The ultimate bonus: the product is cruelty free. The buffer is multi use and as long as you squeeze out the excess water at the end of each session it should last you some time. The buffers come in multiple shapes and scents and you can find the collection at www.spongelle.com

  1. Gift cards and Coupons

The FabFitFun boxes reign supreme, in my book, for the amount of gift cards and coupons that are included. Every box I have received has included at least two gift cards and/or coupons but sometimes as many as three or four. They tend to vary on expiration with some not having an expiration date at all while others expire within 30 to 90 days after receiving the box. Sweet & Spark, Shoptiques.com, Spongelle and Realher are just a few of the gift cards and coupons that have been included in the box.

So there you have it. A few of my favorite things. I’ve been receiving my subscription box for almost two years now and I can honestly say that I have not been disappointed with a single box. I have received so many items that I love. There is always something for your face. I have so many masks I don’t even know what to do. My popping pink water bottle makes me super happy and the pink Himalayan salt set that I received blew my mid. It is just goodies upon goodies upon goodies!

Do you have a FabFitFun subscription? Would you consider getting one?
