FabFitFun {Spring} Unboxing

FullSizeRenderI love getting these boxes when I can. Opening them is like Christmas! I not only enjoy the surprise but I enjoy the variety of products you get. Everything from make-up, hair care, fitness, accessories you literally get it all.

I saw a sneak peek of this box in Instagram and honestly that is what gave me the desire to buy this one. I go back and forth with these because although they are a GREAT value for your money, sometimes I get items I don’t and won’t use. Continue reading

Flat Tummy Tea [review & first impression]

img_5174I joined in on the Instagram craze of Flat Tummy Tea. Although I am not much of a tea drinker, like at all I wanted to try it out. I decided to get the 2 week system and I believe with a coupon code I paid about $30 for the 2 week cleanse. There is also a 4 week option, but because I don’t drink tea, I didn’t want to hate it and waste my money. I had to buy a tea infuser as this tea is loose leaf. Continue reading

FabFitFun: Fall Box 2016

Like most people I love a good deal! I had seen a friend post about how great the Fall FFF box was, the awesome products inside and how they got a steal of a deal. I had ordered the Spring 2016 box, and although it was exciting, I didn’t have $50 to put towards it 4 times a year. So I did some digging, and I ended up getting this Fall 2016 box for only $29.99!

I recently stumbled on GREAT deals for some fitness items, and I thought I would share them with you!

I have recently cut my hair, and it is really hard to get all of my hair up for a workout. I saw on Facebook a deal where you could try a FREE headband. Because I am always curious & looking for a good deal, I checked it out and this is what I found. A brand called Vero Brava. A very decently priced company that makes headbands and hats & stands for a great purpose.

The Mission of this company is that with every headband purchased (about $15-$22 a piece) they will give one to a child diagnosed with Cancer. A company that started off small, by selling a few on Etsy, quickly grew when they offer deals like “Try before you buy” and “buy 2 get 1 free”

I took advantage of the try before you buy deal, and received a FREE black headband. To my surprise, these are extremely soft, comfortable and doesn’t seem to lose its elasticity after being worn. It came with this card that shows the ways it can be worn. Not only does it keep my hair out of my face, but it keeps my earbuds in while I move, and it stays in place!

Once I got my headband, I received an email saying they would “refund” the shipping I paid for my trial headband when I make a $20 purchase (basically getting $6 off my next purchase over $20).

 

The other great deal I took advantage of was Fabletics– A Kate Hudson athletic wear IMG_4047company. When you sign up, you take a quick style quiz that will pair you with styles that fit your fitness habits. Then your can pick your first outfit for just $25. Some outfits are 3 pieces, some are only 2. You can pick from “pre-made” outfits or create your own.

I did cancelled my subscription after 1 month, just to see if I liked it and how the clothes actually fit. Here is my insider tip: When you call to cancel, they try to keep you by giving you 500 points, you then can turn around and use those points to get 1 free item. You can also choose to skip a month instead of canceling, but you only have a small window of time to skip.

You can return any items that don’t fit and get a new piece, or I think you can get credit towards your next purchase.

I absolutely LOVE my outfit that I got. I was surprised how well both of my pieces fit and how good they made me feel. I am wishing I wouldn’t have cancelled so fast…

I got two pieces in my first “kit”. I got a tank with an open back, and of course black. I love the way that this fits, it sits a little higher which is good for me with a bigger chest. My outfit then came with a pair of black capris. These are like magic. The softest pants I have ever worn! They are a tight fit but not an uncomfortable tight. Because I am a shorty, they are a little longer on me then a capri, they are more like ankle length but I am in love with them.

After physically getting my outfit, and trying it on, I regretted canceling so soon. I did sign up again with a different email & shipping address (to get the same great deal, of course) and will just skip if I find that I am not finding anything I like. I did read in the book, that becoming a VIP does have some pretty good perks, including the accumulation of points that can be redeemed for FREE items.

Have you ever gotten Fabletics, or Vero Brava? What do you think of them? Are they worth the price in your mind?

If you haven’t heard about this subscription box, you’ve been missing out. This is a  subscription that costs about $49 a quarter. In every quarter the box contains a bunch of products that are generally fitness related. I have seen the value of the box range from $208- $300. A pretty good deal for the amount of stuff you get inside. I have seen lots of people both online, Instagram and Facebook talk about these boxes, as well as see coupons and email offers for months!

I decided to get one box since I am trying to get motivation to get into more of a fitness lifestyle, I thought that I might get some good pieces in my first box.

When you initially sign up, you get $10 off your first box. If you use a referral code you can get more discounts, as well as benefit the person you got the code from. Here is my code if you’d like to try out the box for yourself: http://xo.fff.me/dR7Rw 

So I got my box, and although I already knew what was in it, I was still super excited to open it. Because these boxes only come out quarterly, I have already seen a Youtuber open the Spring box, and I was aware of what I was going to get.

For someone just starting to grow my makeup and hair products collection, and get back into Fitness type activities this box was perfect! Check out what I got below!

  1. Keratin Gloves & Socks- I have never heard of this brand, but have seen products like these. They are socks and gloves that come with a lotion type product inside. You place them on your hands and feet, wait 20 minutes for the lotion to get absorbed into your skin, remove the socks and gloves and massage in the excess lotion. This product claims to improve nail strength, and anti-age the skin.
  2. Jus D’Ameur Bath Bomb Trio- These bath bombs smell AMAZING! I can’t wait to throw one in my next bath. The scents I got are Love Potion, Wake up & Deep Breath. The thing I love about these is that they are made with natural ingredients and essential oils.
  3. ISH Contour Palette- This 4 piece contour kit I am excited about. I have recently gotten into using more bronzer and blush, and this will be great for me to play around with!
  4. Kitchen Herb Garden DIY Kit- This one is going straight to my sister. I don’t cook much at home, or rather use much for herbs. This little kit comes with 3 herbs- Thyme, Basil & Mint. If you visit Markerskit.com & use the code FABFITFUN you can get 20% off your order.
  5. Jook & Nona Tag Necklace- This cute little bar necklace hasn’t left my neck since I got it. Mine has the word “Happy” stamped on it but some say love, dream or inspire. If you visit their website and use the code JNSPRING you can get 10% off your purchase.
  6. Hello Legs Shaving Emulation Lotion- This lotion claims to be a combination of the richest lotion, the softest shaving cream to create “blade butter” for a smooth shave. I plan to put that to the test! It does smell great, and the small amount I tested easily absorbed without leaving me greasy.
  7. Marrakesh Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy- This is a hair treatment that will help smooth and eliminate frizz. Since I have very straight and smooth hair already, I’m not sure if I will get much use out of this. But it smells AMAZING! I applied a little on my hand to test it and I could smell it all day.
  8. Merrithew Yoga Mat Strap- I am excited to bust this out during my next workout. (who knows when that will be ;)) This not only is a cute strap for carrying your yoga mat, but you can also use it as a resistance band, and a strap to “help hold yoga positions” (I’m not quite sure what that means)
  9. The last 2 items I got are two “gift certificates” to online stores. Together they are worth about $55. I did look at the websites, and the items for sale are much more than A. the “gift cards” value, and B. more than I am willing to pay out of pocket for. I believe both companies were Jewelry companies. 31 Bits & Sterling Forever are both beautiful companies, and have Gorgeous pieces, but I wish I would have gotten physical products instead of a gift card that I probably won’t use.

The retail of my box was: $282.91- (I value it at less than that since I don’t count the “gift cards”)

What did you think about this month’s FabFitFun? Have you tried any of these products before?
