I was eagerly awaiting for my Summer Fabfitfun VIP to arrive! I definitely needed to see what kind of necklace was in my box. 😉

But before I launch into the box contents, here’s a photo of it all – surfboards and towel not included. :p I really liked the staging of the box in their pamphlet so I thought I’d share!

This was literally the first thing I looked for when I opened my box.

AND YESSSSSSS. I got the exact necklace I was hoping for.

Wren 14 Karat Gold and Black Sapphire Moon Pendant ($100) – Oh my god. I am in love with this necklace. It is the perfect length and so absolutely gorgeous that it will literally go well with any outfit. Is it bad that I want to try and collect all of the different variations that FFF is sending out? XD I’ve been wearing mine every day since I’ve received it – not even joking. FFF was totally on-point when they said that subscribers would be obsessed with this item. This is worth the entire box! (but of course, we’re not done yet because there’s still a lot of awesome to go through)

That little piece of black sapphire just really completes the look. *_____*

Hello Konjac Cleansing Sponge ($12) – I was a little confused when I saw the Korean writing on this item because I don’t believe we’ve ever seen a mainstream subscription box (like FFF or Popsugar) include a Korean beauty product before! Despite my many Memeboxes, I’ve never actually received a Konjac sponge so this is going to be pretty awesome to try out because it’s supposed to help exfoliate and cleanse pores (which is definitely something I need help with).

All of the instructions are in English and it comes with illustrations. 🙂

Okay so when I first opened my box, I definitely smelled something amazing but wasn’t sure what it was until I pulled this out. (and let me tell you, FFF does not mess around when it comes to their perfume curation – I’m still bummed that I missed out on the Kai Perfume Oil that they included in their Spring box last year).

Inkling Scents Sultry Roll-On Oil Perfume ($25) – I was surprised that I liked this so much because if I had just looked at the notes in this perfume, I would have totally passed on it in the store. XD The notes in this perfume are: creamy sandalwood, white amber, lotus flower, orchid, Bulgarian rose, and silky vanilla. But no, I really like this! With everything combined together, it smells a lot like sweet honey and florals to me, with a hint of musk at the end. All I can say is that it works amazingly well with my body chemistry. 😀

Plus I do love the packaging! And Inkling Scents has a pretty awesome website too.

The very first spoiler that FabFitFun released!

DSC_1044

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in True Love ($19) – Lip products are my favorite makeup item to receive because they’re always the most fun for me! Tarte is a fantastic brand and this particular product gets a lot of great reviews across the boards. 🙂 But the best part is that it has a vanilla-like taste to it. True Love is described “watermelon”, which to me, is kind of a bright, sheer red.

When I saw this, my first thought was… please, not hairspray!

DSC_1047

Gorge “I’ll Make You Look Amazing” Daily Spray ($24.95) – Thankfully this is not hairspray! It’s a basically a leave-in conditioner, which I can definitely use. I think this is a relatively new brand because I couldn’t find a lot of reviews for it, but it smells so tropic and is definitely perfect for hair care after all those days in the sun and salt water. I’m definitely trying this one out because I think my hair could definitely use a little more TLC this summer.

DSC_1048

Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer ($7.99) – This is actually a sponsored item but it’s perfect for summer! Aloe is amazing for taking care of sunburns because it cools and heals. Not that I’m planning on going outdoors a lot this summer (yay work), but I can definitely appreciate this sponsored item. 😀 It’s going to come in handy one of these days (when I do venture outdoors haha). Also, I do love Vaseline products so I know this will work really well. This is a huge bottle too, so it’ll last for a while.

DSC_1049

Scratch Nail Wraps ($12) – Can’t say I’m too excited about nail wraps but that’s because I don’t really do nail art, nail polish, or nail-anything. XD The most I do is hand cream and cuticle butter. But these are simple, cute designs that anyone can use!

DSC_1050

FabFitFun x CosmoBody Jump Rope ($14) – If you’ve been thinking about getting into jump roping, this is perfect for you! Plus, if you need help on how to structure a jump rope routine, you can actually go to fabfitfun.com/jumprope for some workout videos. These have super soft grips and it’ll be fun to see yourself jumping through a whirl of vibrant pink as you go really fast. 😉

This was another early spoiler item!

What it looks like out of the box.

The back!

And the front!

DSC_1055

The Everyday Wireless Speaker by FabFitFun ($29.99) – Subscribers will either get this in pink (pictured above) or teal! To be honest, I didn’t care either way. I do like teal as a color more, but pink is easier to spot. The coolest thing about this portable speaker is the fact that it has a carabiner style latch that you can use to attach it to beach bag or backpack to bring along with you!

DSC_1056

Headspace 3-Month Subscription ($38.85) – This gives you a 3-month subscription to Headspace, which includes meditation techniques to help guide and relax you through tough times. You can either choose to do it online or download their app. If you’re interested in trying this out, you can look at their free starter level called “Take 10” before committing to an actual subscription! The animation on their “how this works” video is pretty cute. 🙂

I actually applied the code on the back of the card and it signed me up without having to save a credit card on file! I tried the first level last night and really, really loved it. I’ve always wanted to try meditation and I think I need it right now (stressssssssss is killing me). It was only 10 minutes of my time but I felt so calm immediately afterward. Don’t just throw away this gift card – give it a try or share it with someone who needs it.

My Summer 2015 FabFitFun box!

Overall value: $275.79

Overall enjoyment: Yes, about 1/3 of the value of the box comes from the necklace but I LOVE THE NECKLACE. It’s a great “big ticket” item because most people can wear necklaces (unlike rings – sizing issue/people who have to wash their hands a lot, bracelets – sizing issue/people who type a lot and can’t have dangly bracelets, or earrings – people who don’t have their ears pierced). Plus, this necklace is so dainty and adorable that it won’t clash with your outfits and is definitely conservative enough for work!

I really enjoyed the curation of this box and my only criticism (HAHA) is the fact that there’s nothing edible in this quarter’s box. XD But that’s just me being greedy (and hungry) – honestly, this was a great summer box and I’m so tempted to order another box to see what kind of necklace I’d get. :p If you’re getting a FFF box this summer, let me know which necklace you got!!

Oh and if you haven’t gotten a summer FFF box yet – you can still order one. 😀 You can actually use my code BOXES10 to get $10 off, which makes your box only $39.99!

*Disclosure: The above item was complimentary and received for review purposes. All opinions are my own and no compensation was received. I only review things that are in line with my interests and wouldn’t subject you, my dear readers, to boring products or subscriptions.

    1. Ahh, I haven’t tried that yet! Confession time: I actually haven’t used the speaker because I’ve been too busy at work and using earphones. XD But from what I read on the instruction manual, you’re supposed to flip the switch to “P3” and from there you can use the dial to choose your station.
