Look what happened now...
I haven't been reviewing any boxes lately because I actually figured you were tired of seeing the same old thing....but I did get a Spring Fab Fit Fun box in and some really awesome Vegan snacks though and thought I would share.
Are you like me and love mystery subscription boxes? It's really nice getting something other than junk mail or bills in the post, lol. So here is what I received in March:
There were a few items I didn't really care about and a few that were not vegan so I donated, but for only $49.99 I still feel like I got my money's worth. I will probably go ahead now and purchase a yearly subscription. You save $20 by doing this and get first pick on "add ons". If you want to try and a box (and save some money too!) use this link: SAVE You get $10 off your 1st box!
(This is my 3rd box!) It works out to right around $200USD worth of stuff...and almost ALL of it is full size, so you get to actually try the products out.
The Vegan Cuts box is $22.95 (including shipping) - it goes down in price if you buy a 6 month or year sub. There are always at least 10 and sometimes 15 products inside. I didn't take many pictures, because at the time I wasn't planning on posting a review. UH OH....but yeah you get the idea right? I have been getting this box for over 2 years and it only gets better each month. #WIN
And not from a box (but notice my new candle, lol) I have been eyeing these marble trays for some time. I finaily broke down and bought one. I love it and have no idea why I waited so long!
So what boxes do you get? Are there any good ones I should check out? Leave me a comment - I'm always looking to try new products and find cool, vegan or off beat stuff.
Once again save $10 off your first FFF box here and enjoy your weekend!
See you at the airport~
My Fit Fab Fun Winter Box arrived today!
I was surprised that the add ons also shipped with it. From what I had read on line it sometimes takes weeks for them to ship (and to not worry, they are in transit) so I was pleasantly surprised.
I will review the box fully in a day or two, but I can tell you now that I was happy with it.
Catch you later!
This is a Fab Fit Fun Update
See original post here.
After I had problems with my 1st box I went to the site and talked to CS, on the 11th. In the process I saw so, so, so many horrible reviews! Mostly about customers service (OMG) and ship time/response time. And also the reviews read like if you are in Canada you are screwed. (Sorry friends in Canada)
I actually spoke to one of my (non Canadian) GF ’s about the company….she has been getting the boxes for over a year and can’t say enough good about them. She assured me they would fix the problems and I should just sit tight. She also loves the “add ons” and other perks they offer. I told her I would wait and see how this worked out before I upgraded. #ImLikeThat
So fast forward - I spoke twice with CS and they asked for pictures, which I sent of the oil soaked box, etc. Then it did take a few days for them to respond back to my emails, but so far I have received a replacement of the oil (yeah!) and an email telling me that the 5 missing face masks are on the way.
The last email informing me I would receive replacement face masks was sent on the 20th….so it has taken some time. I will post, of course, when the masks do arrive and hopefully this will be resolved soon. At this point I am still game to spend $50 for the next seasonal box (and review it here for you) but not upgrade and subscribe for a year up front.
Being a business owner I know mistakes happen, it’s part of the equation, but it’s how we handle these mistakes that makes all the difference in the world. So we shall see how they do on the next round.
What do you think? Have you had a similar experience with this brand? I’d love to hear your take on it or your thoughts.
I really was thinking about editing my subscription boxes. On the one hand I love them! Its like Christmas every time they arrive! New, fun goodies and surprises! But on the other, this is more stuff I may or may not use and sometimes I feel that for the price you don't get much more than samples, you know? It's such a dilemma!
So how come I'm opening a new box then? Well, as I was having this very conversation with a buddy of mine, she recommended this box. "If you're going to cut down on boxes, I'd keep this one."
Keep it? I never even tried it!
She looked at me like I was living under a rock! Turns out this company is so much more than just a beautiful subscription box. I went over to their website and ordered after reading and seeing all the value you get for the money.
Did I mention everything is FULL SIZE no samples here!
Use my link to save and Get your box! (We both win!)
Here's the details:
They ship out seasonal. so 4 boxes a year. But you can get Editors Boxes (like I did) anytime - plus they also have sales and add ons and oh so much more!
This is what was in the Editors Box:
You also fill out info about yourself so that get products designed for you. Which seems like such a good idea, rather than making it a "one size fits all" box.
Grab your box here and join the Fab Fit Family!
Boxes cost $49.99 (including shipping) Use the link to save on your box.
They are very highly rated and loved by so many people!
They do ship to Canada and Puerto Rico! But Shipping is an additional $8 for seasonal boxes and $10 for shop orders for all Canada, Puerto Rico, Alaska, and Hawaii orders.
I'm going to try the regular seasonal box before I pass judgement. I liked most of the items but that mask valued at $36 is crazy! I actually wrote them to see if it was a mistake.
No answer yet... but I will keep you updated.
What do you think?
Have you tried this box before? Was it worth the $$?
I'd love to hear about your experience!
*This Post is continued here*
Catch your later!
We haven't done this in forever!
Let's play "What the Hell have I been posting" okay?
In no particular order here are a few of my latest posts on IG and a brief explanation.
This was taken in Freshark in New York. I adore their fresh food and visited daily for the smoothies and Vegan burgers! (Read about it HERE) I was in New York in January and again a few days ago, so it would seem like this is going to be a good year for traveling!
I have been blogging some about the recent trip to Iceland. Check here and here or just hit the Iceland tag here.
Really pretty handmade jewelry in New Mexico. I may have returned ready to shop, lol.
I actually have a ton of pictures from this trip I need to sort and write about. Isn't the jewelry amazing?
The weather has been so, so crazy!
1st trip to NYC and it was snowing, and it was colder there than in Iceland! 2nd trip to NYC and it's spring like weather, until the day after we leave and a blizzard hits! OMG! #WTF??
I'm so glad for my cozy socks, and to be back home - let it snow!
Catch you later-
People often ask me about Fashion trends and clothing when I travel. To be honest it can be difficult, especially when you are covering several different countries, locations and venues. What I wear in London I don't usually wear in the Pyrenees. What I wear in Monaco I don't wear in Inverness. I like cities and I also like to be in nature so I have to pack accordingly and have a plan.
I also dislike lugging too many oversized bags. The best thing is always pack light and purchase what you need while on the road. This makes sure your gown matches the event in style (or at least in theory.) Last Holiday season I was invited to the Opera in London. The first thing I did was google what women wear to the opera in London. Then began to assemble a wearable outfit. (Always take one GREAT Pair of comfortable High Heels with you when you travel, if you want to be on point.) And as you know I always bring along too many shoes. #MyWeakness
I like to blend in and not look like tourist so I also google places in advance.
There are many places I wish to visit, and knowing what to wear in advance is a big help. The worst is to show up at an event and being OVER DRESSED or UNDRESSED. #FML
But for the rest of this month I'm in Texas and enjoying comfy clothes and messy hair. #Score!
See you at the airport-

Do you know about Layla Cosmetics? I heard about the company sometime ago and really like their products. This is my second bottle of Hologram effect polish. I also have a mermaid green, but it has gone missing. :(
LAYLA COSMETICS is an Italian company based in Milan, the capital of fashion, which has produced and distributed its own high quality brand for over 60 years. It is the only Italian company that manufactures and markets its nail polish and also a wide range of make-up. (Their web site is also in English.)
See the Hologram effect? My assistant dropped off some papers right after I had painted my nails and he was like "Wow, your nails are shiny purple!" :o
Amazing for him to even notice, WTF?! I explained, "No, it's a hologram." and I could see he was confused. So what does that mean? Even though they are purple they shine rainbow! How cool is that! This was 2 coats shown in the pictures before clean up. It does chip, but ALL NAIL POLISH seems to chip on me. I assume its because I am always painting, drawing or typing? #Fail :X
The Hologram Effect makes a nice, fashionable change from the same old boring colors. I keep my nails short because of my work and its not always easy to find polish that looks good. I think this is one of only a few polishes that look equally nice on short nails. I purchased both bottles off Ebay for around $10.00 a bottle. Do a search & try Amazon too, of course. I am sure I will buy more when I'm in Italy next year. I think it would make a great gift for the Movie Night Girls instead of some cheesy Souvenir.
What do you think? They also have a fun line of Mirror and Magnetic effect polish. But as far as I know no one else does the hologram effect.
Talk soon & see you at the airport-
