FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box

Sometimes I definitely fit into the basic white bitch category. It's never more apparent than when I get my FabFitFun subscription box. Yes, I'm a bad ass chronic pain warrior that defies the odds every single day but I love getting things. I do.

Self care is important and this is one of the things I look forward to. It gives me hope and excitement and those are some of the best painkillers around!

Whatever phrase you want to use here feel free but I think the kids are calling it 'extra' these days. I think my generation would say I'm outta control with my box or I'm such a drama queen about my box.

I'm so extra with my box. I love it and I hate to say it but I'd rather cancel Hulu than give up my subscription box. I might even cancel Crunchyroll.


I didn't write about my winter box because it came right before Tiger's death and I just couldn't bring myself to open it. The emotion of the event was wrapped up in with the tangible, sitting right there on my dresser, a reminder that my dog was gone and my life was different.

That said, I have been looking forward to my Spring box. When my email came to pick my choices for my box, I was psyched! I also got an add on which I will talk about later.

Weirdly, I was a little disappointed I got it February 28. I actually waited for the next day to open it, that way it would officially be March and spring would be ushered in soon. Although, as I type this it's 37 outside, with a wind chill of 27. Ugh, I know it's much colder in certain parts of the country but that is too cold for this Texas girl!

Plus, I haven't seen the actual sun in a month. It's been cloudy and rainy every damn day. No way in hell I could live in a place that's cloudy more than 50% of the year.

So onto the box.

FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box

First of all, the design is always fabulous but they have updated their logo. I like the vibe the new one has, more organic instead of geometric.

If you've never subscribed to a subscription box let me school you on what it is. Basically, it's a box of curated items sent to you for you to enjoy. There's a category for everything, the self-explanatory Snack Crate or Loot Crate (which caters to geek and nerd culture).

Fabfitfun has a little of everything, gadgets, healthcare, crafts, skincare, makeup, to purses and handbags. Heck, this month they even had a bathrobe in 'choices.'

So 'choices...'

I'm a premiere subscriber, actually I don't even know if that is the correct term, but it means I pay for my whole year up front instead of month to month. There's a benefit in that, meaning I get to choose some of my items.
I choose the, body brush, water bottle, the essential oil diffuser, and then I had them pick for me the last one, because I couldn't make a choice. I got the sunglasses.

I think I'm most excited about the charcoal body scrub since I'm about to run out of my current one. I'm less excited about the Babe Lash lash serum because I've heard those products can change blue eyes to brown. So not worth it, besides I was graced by the gods with amazing eyelashes.

I've set the diffuser up on my bed table, so I can diffuse my sleepy essential oil mix...which I guess is worth posting. I'll get on that soon. The diffuser also came with a meditation app subscription but I already use Headspace.

The water bottle is clean and ready to go. I haven't used it yet because it's so cold I've been heating up my water in the microwave, so I've been sticking to glass jars.

The OUAI leave in conditioner, I may give to someone that needs it. I'm super happy with my hair products right now. The Dr. Brandt No More Baggage may also be given away, puffiness is not a problem I have right now, just dark circles.
