FabFitFun | The Editor's Box

Monday, 6 March 2017

 I believe that I have the best little sister in the whole wide world. She is the sweetest, smartest little human you could ever meet. I can't believe how grown up she is. The image I have of her, when I think of her, is the little kindergartener who wore overalls with socks and sandals to her first day of school.  When we were younger and I was single, because I was the only one of the two that was old enough to work, I would always take my little sister on what we called "sister dates." We would spend an entire day shopping, eating, taking pictures, and simply having fun until the sun went down. It was how I thought I could best bond with her and show her I cared about her. It was hard at times finding things we had in common or enjoyed doing together because our interests would be different, I'm older by 5 years. Nonetheless, we enjoyed hanging out, and bonding over a cone of ice cream. 

 I married  young, and feel that in a way, I left her on her own. She was only about 15 when I moved out and started my new life with my husband. We could have had many more years to bond over even more! You can't turn back time, but what you can do is strengthen the relationships you have with your loved ones now. 
 Although we live our separate day to day lives, working, going to school, taking care of kids etc; our sister bond is still going strong. And the foundations that were made for our relationship by doing these sister dates are to thank. I love my little sister, and she loves me...just look at how she spoils me.

 I've always wanted a subscription box, and look what she surprised me with, who does she think she is? She's blazing amazing! I'm very excited to be sharing with you what this surprisingly large box contained. Let's begin the FabFitFun | The Editor's Box Unboxing! I can't wait to try out all of these goodies, which I must include, are full size!

Here's what came in this season's box:

 ModCloth Loch and Key Scarf
 The Created Co. To-Go Coffee Mug
 Fabfitfun Colouring Book and Colored Pencils
 Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain
 Marrakech Argan & Hemp Hair Oil
 O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face
 Jook & Nona Tag Necklace
 Anderson Lilley Beach Butter Body Cream
 Zoya Nail Polish

 Now, for the big question... Would I recommend this? The answer is a little more complicated than a simple yes or no. I would say that if you are deciding whether or not to purchase a box subscription, you have to think of it as a gift to yourself or someone else and weigh the pros and cons. These types of box subscriptions are a bit pricey, especially if you're on a budget, costing close to $200 for a years subscription. I would justify this expense for two reasons only. One, that you want to spoil yourself, which you are 110% allowed, because girl, no one more than you deserves it! And two, because what you pay is what you get. You are putting in a bit more money up front for beauty products, but you are receiving quality, trending, full size items in your box as well. In way you are saving money, just this box alone has a retail value of $257.98. The price of your subscription for an entire year, which is a total of four seasonal boxes. The only downside is that the contents of the box is a total surprise. You don't get to pick and choose what goes in it. You may end up not liking certain products you receive. Resulting in the subscription as a waste of money. But is investing in yourself ever a waste? 

 If you can afford it, I say go for it. If not, you can always try and save up a little every month, for this investment in yourself. You don't have to save $50 or $100 every paycheck, but maybe $5 here, $20 there until you've reached your goal. In my case, I loved all of the products, and will definitely be checking out other box subscriptions that are out there to spoil myself with. If you'd like for me to review any of the products listed in this post, let me know in the comments! I'd be happy to do some.
