Summer 2018 FabFitFun Box

 

I recently received my Summer FabFitFun box and it was PACKED with some awesome goodies! Can’t wait to rave about them below haha.

Of all the subscription boxes I get, this is by far my favorite. It’s over $200 worth of products but I only pay $50. It’s fantastic. I also love the magazine it comes with that gives you a run down of the products AND how to use them.

FabFitFun is a seasonal box that comes 4 times a year (spring, summer, winter, fall) and is packed with a variety of products typically focused around that season. In my Spring box, I got a brightly colored clutch that I’m in love with, and some cute springy dangle earrings. This box was full of some great summer pieces that will definitely come in handy!

Here’s what came this month:

Coola Sunscreen

 

Yumi Kim Travel Makeup Case

 

De-Stress Aromatherapy Gel

 

Orlando Pita Play Heat Protectant Spray

 

Marble Hex Ring Dish

 

Tarteist Pro Glow Highlight and Contouring Kit

 

Minor History Post Script Wallet

 

FOREO LUNA facial scrubber

I’m actually really pleased with everything that came in this box. I truly feel like I always get my moneys worth from FabFitFun and I get to try new products I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.

I think the things I was most excited about were the travel makeup bag and the Tarte highlighter pallet. I actually freaked out when I opened the box and saw that! I LOVE Tarte cosmetics, and have been wanting a highlighter and contour kit but haven’t been able to decide on one. I almost bought this exact one a few weeks ago but decided to wait and do some more research. The make up gods heard my prayer and sent me this beauty.

The makeup case is absolutely beautiful, I don’t even thing pictures do it justice. Since you can preview some things that will come in your box, this was one thing I knew was coming. I got a choice between this color and a navy one. I felt the floral one was really vibrant and I’m so glad I got it because it will come in so handy when I have to travel this summer as it has a place to store my brushes.

The sunscreen is currently in my purse, where it will stay all summer. I burn VERY easily, and my dad has had skin cancer 4 times so I am extra cautious about applying sunscreen all the time.

Since I’ve been working out harder lately, the aromatherapy gel has actually already been opened and I love it. It smells like lavender and it very soothing, just like it says.

Considering how much I typically straighten and/or curl my hair, the heat protectant spray will also definitely come in handy. I’ll keep it beside the marble ring dish and facial scrubber in the bathroom.

Speaking of the facial scrubber, that will actually be really cool to try. It is bluetooth and connects with an app that tells you thinks about your skin. It should be quite interesting as I’ve always had issues with my skin so maybe it can provide me some insight!

The wrist wallet was the least exciting thing, as it just has enough room to hold maybe an ID and credit card so I feel like I’d lose it easily. But it may come in handy, who knows.

If you’re on the edge about giving this box a try, I’d have to say go for it. Each box has a slight variation, and you can get different things from someone else with the same box. You can also purchase things on their website for a discounted price, or add them to your box for $10 which is amazing. I haven’t done that yet but I imagine I will someday when I want both options haha.

*ENJOY $10 OFF YOUR FIRST BOX WITH CODE: PICNIC10*

Have a wonderful week!

XO,

Dani

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
