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

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
