Blogmas 2020, subscription box

Blogmas – Autumn/Fall FabfitFun

Good afternoon friends,

Today we’ll be reviewing the Autumn/Fall FabFitFun box

I meant to do this month’s ago, but kept forgetting, and then accidentally deleted my note on my phone with my blog post, so it’s a little later than any expected. No worries!

FabFitFun is a quarterly subscription box where you can receive, 8 full sized home, fitness and beauty products.

1 seasonal box is delivered every 3 months for $49.99 (around £60 including delivery to the UK), with a value of over £200

You have the option to pay for the yearly subscription of $179.99 for the 4 boxes.

I have decided to pay seasonally, and used a £10 off discount code (just Google it they’re available everywhere).

Each box comes with a magazine explaining what charity they are working with that season, interviews, product breakdowns, and a few discount code cards for your first order, for wines, hello fresh, and florists.

‘Basic Members’ like myself, can customized 3 of my 8 products.

For each customised item, you are given around 4 options to select the item you want.

You do have the option to hand pick a few more of the items, although I think it takes a bit of the fun out of it, as I love a surprise.

I have seen comments on the forum and YouTube videos of customers complaining about the products theyve received, but at the same time, if you have the option to chose a few of the select items, and you decide not to, then you can only blame yourself for being disappointed.

For my first customizable item, I had the choice of a back pack, tote bag, hair curlers or the styling cream.

I didn’t realise certain items aren’t able to ship to the UK, I was so bummed out, but then watched a few YouTube videos and confirmed id made the right choice.

SACHAJUAN Styling Cream + Finish Cream RRP $65.00

‘Make your hair soft and silky with the styling cream, then give your hair a defined texture with the finish cream’

My hair is long, thick, and curly, prone to alot of frizz.

I have found my hair to be a bit flat and dry recently, with greasy roots and curls not in tact.

I am not one to spend $65 on hair products, however, these are hands down the best styling and finishing creams I have ever used.

SOIA & KYO Woven Scarf with Fringe RRP £85

This 66” x 52” scarf-cardigan is versatile, to be used as a scarf, or to throw over your shoulders to keep you wrapped up and warm.

Vitamasques Multivitamin Mask Set RRP $30.00

These nourishing fibre sheet masks are filled with vitamins B3, B5, B6, C, and E.

Lay back for 20minutes and relax, and use and excess product from the pack to Smith over your neck.

Masontops® Glass Water Bottle with Neoprene in Turquoise RRP $35.00

I often, like many forget to stay hydrated. Holding up to 20 ounces, easy to clean, removed the waste of plastic bottles, with removable and reversible teal/black sleeve, I love this glass mason jar bottle.

8 Other Reasons Runway Clip Trio RRP $32.00

These hair clips are absolutely beautiful. 18k gold plated lead-free, nickel-free alloy metal, resin, I’m not really one to wear hair clips, but with these beauties Ill save them for spring and give them a go.

Voesh Pedicure in a Box Duo – Pumpkin Spice RRP $20.00

These 8 sachets of Sea Salt Soak, Sugar Scrub, Mud Masque, and Massage Cream are Vegan, Organic, Cruelty Free, Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Phthalate Free, Aluminum Free, Gluten Free

Made in South Korea, these foot packs leave you relaxed with super soft, delicious smelling feet. Such a lovely idea for a pamper.

NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Repair Treatment Masque RRP $16.00

I wish you could smell how delightful this hair masque is. ‘Apply to freshly shampooed hair and leave for 3 to 5 minutes and rinse’, leaves hair soft and glossy without weighing it down.

The Beauty Crop Glow Milk in Blind Date RRP $19.50

I’m not overly keen on highlighters. I know they’re ‘all the rage’ nowadays, but I don’t see the hype. I may use this as a highlighter eyeshadow duo to get more of of the product. No doubt the shimmer is beautiful, as well as being Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Phthalate Free and Aluminum Free

I absolutely loved my first FabFitFit box, it seemed a little pricey at first, but I’d much rather pay for 1 decent seasonal box, rather than 3 monthly ‘so so’ boxes that are filled with delux mini’s

I was shocked at the total of the box when I added it up, although It is worth keeping in mind that as any subscription box, well any products you buy in general, the price will always been increased slightly due to RRP

Total value $302.50

For £60 I’m thrilled with my items

Hauls

Autumn/Fall Haul 2020

Good evening friends,

What a wet and windy, yet wonderful autumn night.

Autumn/Fall for me is all about Comfort, your home and clothes become a little cosier, embracing the dark nights and chill in the air, and having some much needed downtime.

Here’s a few of my autumn essentials.

Home

Beanies Coffee 50ml £1.99 each (Lidl)

Until last year I never understood the hype of ‘Pumpkin Spiced Lattes’ – and then I got hooked.

I’m not really one for flavoured coffees, but they give that extra warmth this time of year.
Whilst in my local Lidl, I spotted the Beanies Pumpkin Spice instant coffee.

Oh my! It’s been just over a week and I’ve finished a jar. I went back to grab another jar, and picked up Cinder toffee, Caramel popcorn, Nutty hazelnut, Irish cream

Candles £3 each – Gingerbread Cookie and winter Spice (B&M)

I’m all about candles, each season brings a different scent. This year I hunted high and low for spiced candles. Finally I found them in B&M, and how cute are they? And yes, due to the many unsuccessful trips trying to find them, I picked up 3 of each.

Fashion

Charity shop
George cream short tench coat (New with tags) £5
BM Collection heavy blush pink coat £5

I, like many, love blacks, browns and deep reds for this season, I decided to mix up it up and look out for a few softer shades, and hit the jackpot.

The cream trench coat is a must, simple and chic, but the pink coat, she’s my favourite. Pairing it with a pink handbag, I’d be giving off Umbridge vibes, but I’m okay with that!

Charity shop – Next Knitwear £2 New with tags

I love a dusty Rose pink, especially with black jeans or LBD

Lily Morgan £5 (everything five pounds.com)
A simple black cotton jumper with glitter trim jumper, jazzes up the one of the must haves for this season. This jumper is so warm and fuzzy, it’s become a new favourite

Old Navy £5 (everything 5 pounds.com)

I bought this long cream jumper about 3 sizes to big. It is huge and just hangs off me, it’s so soft and just the right thickness. Not really one to wear out as it is so baggy, but at home with some fluffy socks is just perfect.

Pep&Co £12
This Hound tooth dress is perfect for winter. Possibly even a comfy Christmas day look?

Pep&Co £6
And once I saw the dress, I just had to buy the skirt!

Beauty

Vaseline Intensive care Cocoa Radiant
Body lotion 400ml £3.99

I have dry and sensitive skin, with eczema which flairs up more in the cooler months. This lotion helps to sooth and moisturize my skin without leaving it stinging or feeling greasy.

Poundland Lipscrub ‘Mint to be’ £1

Nothing worse that chapped lips, especially when rocking a dark lip. Pounlands Lipscrub smells, and tastes great, and works just as well as names brands.

NYX Midnight Muse £3.99

I picked up this lipstick thinking it was black, but it is actually a deep navy. Not a shade I’ve worn before but definalty one I’ll be trying this season.

Maybelline Vivid matte Liquid £7.99 (TK Maxx)
20 matte shades for £7.99, that equals 0.39p each. Bargain! Plus all the shades are beautiful, the bright purples and orange may be a little tricky to pull off but I’ll do my best!

Keep an eye out for my vivid matte Lip challenge later this month

What autumn goodies have you purchased recently? And what does Autumn/fall mean to you?
