It seems like everywhere you turn there’s a box subscription. You want clothes hand selected for you? Great, try this. Does your dog need a little TLC? There’s a box for that! The list goes on and on and on…. I’m definitely not knocking them, but a girl could get carried away!
I’ve loved Giuiliana Rancic since she was Giuiliana DePandi. Those were the days that I religiously watch E! News. Then she met the dashing, dapper, and handsome Bill Rancic. What a dream boat!!! And I watched as they struggled through their infertility issues and was so happy for them when they welcomed that sweet little Duke into the world. At some point she started a blog, fabfitfun. I remember signing up as a subscriber, I was one of the first 100.

Filled with trendsetting info, the site sets the bar for all things fab, fit, and fun. It’s the perfect way to kickstart your happy and get more from life every day!
I read the blog pretty regularly, it always has great information about health, fitness, beauty, or fashion. A while ago they started doing these VIP boxes. They sent me coupon I couldn’t resist, so I decided to give it a try. Here’s the deets. You fill out a survey telling them a little bit about yourself and you choose whether or not you want a subscription (delivered quarterly) or just a one time try. My box came super fast! It contains $232.42 in goods. They are all full size.(Except for the panty liners and shave cream.) You can get your box here for $49.99.
Dermologica Skin Hydrating Booster $56: This is one of the company’s highly rated items. Everyone raves about how hydrated their skin was after using this. Hyaluronic acid, panthenol, glycolipids, and algae extract are said to moisturize without breakouts or oils.
Review: I used this like a serum before my CeraVe lotion and it left my skin more moisturized that before. This has been really helpful while I’ve been back on my retinoid. Going into the dry winter months this booster will be invaluable.
Gramr Gratitude Co. Thank You Card Set, Sealing Wax, & Wax Press $43: OMG, these are beautiful! The cards are so gorgeous and different. I’ve already given them all away. They preach what I’m always spouting off about: An attitude of gratitude. Love that! Plus, I’m a sucker for the wax seal. I used one of those on each and every wedding invited and thank you I sent. There’s just something nostalgic about a wax seal.
Jessie Steele Apron $32: This apron is sooooooo adorable! Obviously aprons are a necessity for anyone that spends anytime in the kitchen, crafting, or cleaning that wants to look good. But there’s far more to an apron other than protection your fab duds. I like one that makes me look ladylike, not one that covers my shape. This one is adjustable in all the right places and the cut is to die for!
FitFusion 3-month Digital Subscription $29.97: This is pretty cool! It’s three months of non-stop workout video content. Yoga, pilates, HIIT, boot camp. dance videos: it’s all included in the package. I’m not one to workout at home, so this probably isn’t my thing. But I LOVE the concept. It really makes working out… easier.
Beauty for Real True Color Lip Cream “Always There” $22: Lighted wand? Check. Mirror on side of tube? Check. Beautiful lasting color? Check. This reminds me of cheapie beauty buy I picked up at the Sac Fashion Week showcase last year. Only the formula did not do anything for me. But I liked the concept.
Review: The consistency is creamy and moisturizing. The color is really rich! It’s a pinkie red that really goes well with my skin tone. This is what I was hoping for with that other tube from last year. This tube has an on/off switch for the light which means I don’t look like a crazy clubber when I apply it at a PTA meeting.
LaNatura Travel Size Body Butter $18: This smells delightful and it soooooo moisturizing! The all natural ingredients really make this shea butter something special
Great Soles Pink Ribbon Ballet Barre Ped $12: I love these. I’m a sucker for great socks. I actually have very little socks, so when someone gives me a pair, I immediately put them right on. They are so cute with the mary-jane styling and the tread makes them oh-so practical.
CHI 44 Iron Guard $14.50: I rarely flat iron my hair, so I tried this heat protectant when I was using my curling iron. I really liked how soft my hair was, but it did weigh it down a bit. Clearly this was formulated to used with a straight iron. But the smell is delightful!
The Honest Company Hydrating Shea Butter Cleansing Bar $4.95: Oh soap, I rarely buy you. A few months ago I bought a monster pack of Old Spice bar soap. They have really funny names and even funnier descriptions. Anyway, I still have about seven more bars to go until I need to buy more. But when I do, this is what I’ll buy. It has a light scent and is surprisingly moisturizing.
Mary’s Gone Crackers: Delicious!
Numi Organic Tea: I love me some tea!
All in all, the booster, thank you notes, and apron made this all worth the cheap price of $49.99 for this VIP FFF Box. You can get your own box here. Use the FLASH10 coupon code for $10 off! Come on! At $39.99, this is definitely worth a try!
