There’s something magical about getting stuff in the mail. The anticipation of its arrival…the rush home when you get that delivery notification…the butterflies you feel when walking up to the door…ripping open the box as soon as you step in the door…pausing life to try out ALL the contents right then and there.
This was precisely what happened when my FabFitFun box arrived earlier this month. Much to my hubby’s chagrin, I put him to dinner duties while I thoroughly dived through the box. Now, this isn’t your typical ‘try-out-some-samples’ scenario. These are full-sized products, friends.
Another bonus? FabFitFun boxes aren't hyper-focused, meaning that I got a few beauty products, some stationary and jewelry in the same box! And not just like, some jewelry. GORJANA. Friends, one of her necklaces costs more THAN THIS ENTIRE BOX TOTAL. Like, that’s crazy. Crazy awesome.
So what was inside this month’s FabFitFun box?
Thank You Notes from Marie Mae: THANK GOODNESS these were in here because my stack full of holiday cards aren’t cutting it in January. These say, CHEERS, and I got the greatest kick mailing these out to clients and friends!
Butter "Iconoclast" Mascara: You know that glorious moment when you run out of mascara then ONE ARRIVES MYSTERIOUSLY ON YOUR DOORSTEP? That just happened. I love how smoothly this applies on my eyelashes. It’s the perfect size for keeping in my tote and purse when I’m out too.
Moleskin Agenda: This agenda is the perfect way to start a new year on an organized note! I was thrilled to see how small it is too -
Gorjana Necklace: I never buy myself silver jewelry, so it was so fun to find this in my box. I’ve worn this so much since receiving it…although it’s no surprise - Gorjana can make one heck of a necklace.
D.L. & Co. Candle: Is there such a thing as too many candles? No, there is not. And I loved getting this one in a surprise package - I can get a bit of scensory overload when trying to find candles I like. Plus, candles are the fundamental backbone behind Hygge.
Anderson Lilley "Winter in Manhattan Beach" Lotion: THIS SCENT. Ugh! It’s so good. I’ve been using this nightly and it’s become the perfect way to wind down after a stressful day. The scent is called Winter in Manhattan Beach, which has a special sentimental meaning for me because I have family who lives on Manhattan Beach…visiting that area was always a major highlight of my summers growing up.
ORG Skincare Mineral Peel Face: I’ve been on the hunt for a non-abrasive face peel for months now - but haven’t really gotten around to TRYING any. This one got fantastic reviews and contains lots of natural ingredients like aloe, Jojoba oil and Mugwort exact. Plus it’s quick and makes your skin REALLY glow. This is definitely coming with me to FL next weekend.
Star Pin: This was the most unexpected, yet favorite item in the box. Not only are stars EVERYTHING right now, but it’s been adding a fun little touch to my work blazers. Even better, the sales from these go towards the Starlight Children’s Foundation, whose mission is to brighten the lives of very ill children.
I don’t like to play favorites here, but this is definitely one of the best boxes I’ve tried out. If you’re looking for a birthday gift that continues to remind the recipient how awesome you are, this should do the trick. ;)
