Fab Fit Fun Summer Box

Summer is in full swing and if you’ve been on Instagram lately, you’ve probably seen people posting about the Fab Fit Fun box. I’ve posted about Fab Fit Fun before and I’m here to do it again because it’s honestly one of my favorite things to get in the mail. I’ve been a loyal customer for at least 3 years and during that time I have really grown to love the company and the boxes. The Summer 2019 box is no exception!

So what exactly is a Fab Fit Fun box??

The box is a box full of beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness products valued at over $200 and always FULL SIZE (no sample minis here). Each season Fab Fit Fun comes out with a new box (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) with products tailored to that season in some way, shape, or form.

Which subscription is right for me?

Fab Fit Fun offers a few subscription options. In my opinion, the ANNUAL subscription offers the best bang for your buck!

  1. Seasonal Subscription - The seasonal subscription means you’ll pay $49.99 each season (4 times per year) and will ship according to the seasonal schedule. This option is great if you aren’t sure you want to continue with the boxes or want to try them out for a few seasons.

  2. Annual Subscription - The annual subscription is what I have opted to have and it’s totally worth it. You will still receive a box every season but you'll pay a one time yearly fee of $179.99 (that gives you a little extra savings and also A LOT of perks). If you are an annual subscriber, you will also become a “Select Member” which means your box usually ships out earlier and you get to customize the items you want in your box - a feature that sold me on annual vs. seasonal! If you have the seasonal, you can always upgrade to the annual subscription if you change your mind!

This summer’s box is filled with so many great products. My personal favorite is the COOLA Setting Spray that is SPF 30 and great to throw in your bag for the pool or the beach!

How do I sign up?

If you want to try a Fab Fit Fun box, you can sign up HERE and RECEIVE $10 OFF YOUR FIRST BOX

Depending on when you sign up, you will receive either the seasonal box (right now it would be summer) or an Editor’s Box (if seasonal is sold out). Either box is filled with the $200 worth of products! I actually started off with an Editor’s Box because I signed up in between seasons.

If you have any questions about the Fab Fit Fun box or my experience with it, please feel free to comment below or DM me on Instagram!

Happy Summer!

Backyard Pool Day

What better way to beat this summer heat...especially when you aren’t allowed to go to the real pool, then with a improvised backyard pool!?  Keep reading for all of the pool and swimmie details!

Okay so if any of you saw my Insta stories and lack of posts this week, you found out I am stuck at home for the next 4-5 weeks because Baby R didn’t get the memo that he or she still needs to keep baking!   

I was really upset when I found out I’d be on a pretty low activity level, especially because it’s the middle of summer and I LOVE the beach and the pool.  So, this week I went on a search for an inexpensive “adult” inflatable pool.  I didn’t have to look too far before amazing AMAZON delivered!! This pool is huge and easily seats 4 adults sprawled out so it’s perfect for cooking off and would totally fit in a small city backyard as well.   I seriously want to have people over now to my pool haha!

POOL - Under $60 on Amazon and it’s HUGE

SWIM - Target Steal!! Swim is also 20% off! 

BEACH TOWEL - I got this gem in my FabFitFun Summer box and it’s amazing.  It’s so lightweight and it’s sand resistant too! If you still haven’t subscribed to FFF you’re missing out! Copy and paste this code for $10 off your first box!

I LOVE SUMMER! Anyone else?! But seriously, it’s 100% my favorite time of year.  I found the perfect and most comfortable dress to kick off the season on none other than...AMAZON!  Yes, Amazon has a ton of fashion picks and I always look there before anywhere else. 

This dress is non-maternity so I can wear it after the baby is here in a few months and it also is made from the softest material ever!  (No lies I’m all about comfort these days) 

Oh did I mention it’s only $20.99?! Yep...and comes in a bunch of colors, sizes, and other prints (I’m wearing a small).  I’m totally ordering more now that I’ve figured out what a steal it is!  My favorite Burberry sunglasses are also available on Amazon. I've had these for years and they haven't bent, scratched, and they are the perfect aviator style.  Shop the sunnies HERE!

Shorts, Sofrito, and Virgin Mojitos!

Anyone else love ethnic food spots?? I'm always on the hunt for a good place that doesn't require me traveling to a tropical island (although I'd much prefer that).  Unfortunately at 30 weeks pregnant you can't do much of anything anymore, including flying, so we took to our neighborhoods to find some great eats and we weren't left disappointed!

Not going to lie, I'm finding it hard to fit into most of my clothes lately and will probably be resorting exclusively to dresses in the next few weeks, but this entire outfit is non-maternity and was still so comfortable! Which means it's also the perfect go-to when you want to binge eat and drink...and not need to unbutton your jeans! I've linked the look below!

BGBGeneration Black/White Utility Shorts - These might be the world's most versatile shorts! I'm wearing a size XS and was easily able to fold them down for comfort, but you can also wear them as a hi-waisted option and they are so cute.  They are sold out virtually EVERYWHERE (that's saying something) but I finally found them HERE and for half off! 

Forever 21 Knit Off the Shoulder Top - Unfortunately this one is sold out...I'll keep trying to find it because its so lightweight and comfortable (also has a really cute open back).  But I'm linking a few other similar styles.  Here is one style I LOVE and under $20! And another....this one is so Boho Chic and only $15.99!

Shoes - Obviously my Sole Society GO-TO heels for the summer...being comfortable is such a struggle and I'm always linking these because my feet never hurt and I also don't feel like I'm going to lose my balance carrying around this basketball!

Handbag - Ah I just LOVE this bag and totally forgot I had it...its amazing what cleaning out your closet can do.  I got this gem in Athens, Greece on our honeymoon so unfortunately I cannot link it, but I totally love it.  In honor of the beloved Kate Spade - here is a great similar option.


Now let's talk about the FOOD!

We found a really great Puerto Rican spot - Sofrito!

What we ordered:

Empanadas - We chose one chicken and one beef..both were DELICIOUS and the dough was so flaky and good.  You can tell it is made from scratch and it reminded me of the ones we got on the street in Puerto Rico last time we visited!

Paella - I am a sucker for a good Paella and the Sofrito Paella didn't disappoint.  It had LOBSTER, CHICKEN, CHORIZO, CLAMS, MUSSELS, CALAMARI, SHRIMPS AND SAFFRON RICE and we split it because it was huge!

Tres Leches - Oh. My. God. This was SOOOO SOOOO good. It was a perfect balance of the light cake and whipped topping paired with that creamy, delicious cinnamon infused milk.  You just need to go try it. Period. 

 

And to top it all off, they have some amazing cocktails....at least from what I could see!  They were sweet enough to play along and make me a Virgin Strawberry Mojito but it was actually really delicious and I would totally order again.  Mojitos are my favorite drink of the summer! 

Thanks Sofrito for another great night out in Westchester!

And thank YOU for stopping by!
