Spring 2022 fabfitfun Unboxing

Hey hey, it’s MJ,

            At the exact moment I am writing this I am sitting at my cousin’s house in Western Pennsylvania, we have been traveling on and off for days now. By the time this goes out I will have stopped in Ohio and I am in Indiana for a few days. My body does not like traveling but here we are. Now as I post this I have been home for almost a week and I wrote that almost two weeks ago, oops. 

            So, I got my fabfitfun box well over a week ago with the full intention to write this post a week ago, I didn’t though because my last week of school before spring break was a lot and I just needed some time off from trying to write blog posts. I wrote other things, but I didn’t work on my Bullet Journal or blog posts. 

            This box was fine, it wasn’t the best and it wasn’t the worst. Most of the items were nice and I really like there, there are a few though that are strange and fine, but not something I ever would have picked out for myself. They were surprise items, that is such a weird option and it wasn’t like there was a bundle this month, I am just a little confused about their choices and things. Also, the problem with the surprise items is they just show up in the list on the app as “surprise me” I don’t have all the packaging so if I want to know exactly where they are from or what they are I don’t have that information. 

            There is no particular order to this because I don’t remember all the choices or the products that I chose so I am just going to toll through it. 

L*Space Coastal Cooler:

            Chose this one, it is nice and I am excited to actually have a chance to use it because I needed a smaller cooler that I can take to the store with me. I got an email saying that my box might be delayed, it wasn’t but that might be because I bought an add-on. I love the color and how summery it looks; I am looking so forward to getting home and being able to take this to the store with me. 

Summer & Rose Celine Crossbody:

            This was my add-on, I couldn’t choose between this and the L*Space Cooler, I really like Summer & Rose, I have a few of their products at home and this crossbody is super cute. I like that it’s a flap cover instead of a zipper or open. It’s really cute and I cannot wait to have a reason to use it. It will make a good date night bag and let’s be real, I have a few really cute date night bags, I just don’t have a date. I love the metallic shade of this bag, the strap needs to straighten out and I like that it can be a clutch or a crossbody with the removable strap. 

Ban.do Stemless Wine Glasses: 

            I probably won’t use these as wine glasses, they are just glasses for me and I know that pretty well, they can come out if I have people over who drink. I think these are super cute as well and I think that I chose these as well. I honestly don’t remember at this point. I feel like I should, but it’s been a long time since I made the choices. They are cute and a confetti theme so I am excited to use them, just not for alcohol as I am not a person who makes the choice to drink wine, I drink so rarely I basically don’t drink at all. 

London Town Cuticle Cream:

            This was one of the surprise things, it’s fine. I don’t really used cuticle cream, I should but I don’t. I haven’t gotten a chance to try it, I will give it a chance when I get home, but that is not at this current moment. I understand the want and necessity of a cuticle cream. I spend a lot of time picking at my cuticles, it’s an anxiety thing, so maybe using this will help with that issue. 

Winky Lux Lip Oil:

            I think it’s called In The Stars, I am not 100% sure because I had to look it up on the Target website, I only brought pictures of the products with me, not the packaging or I wouldn’t be getting this post out until I got home and at this point I haven’t posted in like two weeks and that’s always a mess. I don’t really use lip oil, I use lip balm, lip stick and lip scrub, and sometimes even lip masks and lip gloss but lip oils I don’t use almost at all if ever. I cannot tell you the last time I used one. Maybe this one will be the one that gets me to change mt tune on that but I don’t know. I like the packaging and the gold flakes in the tube, but I didn’t get a chance to try it before I left home. 

MantraBand Cuff Bracelet:

            I love my Zox bracelets, and this to me feels very much like that, but fancier. The band says ‘she believed she could, so she did’ and I love that phrase. I have already tried it on and it fits which is a lot of fun. I cannot wait to wear this like everywhere I go because it means a lot to me as a phrase. I think I picked this one, I really do and I was so glad that I did. It’s slightly adjustable so I can bend it a little so it fits a little better, but I don’t want to bend it too much because that wears out the metal faster. 

Kate Spade Mini Square Earrings in Opal Glitter:

            I love Kate Spade, I really love Kate Spade, her designs were so classic but also really fun and I am in love with these earrings. They are a super fun color and I love opal as a gemstone. I also usually only wear one pair of earrings and they were like my second pair, so I have had them since my freshman or sophomore year of high school; they are small and have a ruby in the center, very understated. I need to diversify again, though I wear these because I never take them out. I have let my holes almost close enough times to know that I need to keep earrings in at all times or I will forget to put them in for six months and then I have to shove an earring through my ear and that doesn’t seem like it’s a really safe option. 

Hair Clips:

            I don’t have the packaging and again, this was an item that wasn’t shown to me in my box on the app. I don’t know what brand they are and I don’t feel great about that. I could scroll back through fff’s Instagram and try to find them but I think I would be searching for a while. I love them, I have been wearing the tortoise shell one for almost a week now on and off and it’s so comfortable and it keeps my hair where I want it to be kept. I have problems with clips more frequently than I would like to admit, but I really like these ones. 

            Overall, I liked my box, fff has been really hit or miss for about the last year and a half and like the rest of my posts I will say I am going to wait for the spoilers for the summer box to see if that is something that I want to get. I probably will because I like being loyal to companies. I liked most of the items in the box and I know that the pandemic has caused issues, I just feel like I used to get more bang for my buck with fff and they raised prices this year so who knows. 

            Well, I am sitting in my uncle’s house in Ohio finishing this post off in the dark because no one else is awake and it’s not like I can wander the house, I would alert my furry cousin and he likes to bark and whine, so I’m just quietly hanging out in a bedroom waiting for signs of life so I can get up.  Below is the furry cousin in question

            I am going to start writing Sunday’s post here at some point on our drive to Indiana today. By now we have driven something like 1,400 miles in 5 days. My spring break has not been very much of a break if we are being honest and that’s no one’s fault but mine because I said yes to coming on this trip during my break. Should have asked to postpone it until after school was over. Like the week back was conference week so I have been tired since March 17th, it’s April 1st.

            I hope that everyone has a great rest of the week and I will be back later in it with a new post and until then I hope that everyone stays safe, happy, and healthy.
