Summer Goodies But First a Fail


Y'all, I swear I had the best intentions. Isn't that how it always is?

For the first time in a long time, I painted my nails, did my hair, put on makeup, and even threw on some jewelry for good measure. And I filmed a video, something I haven't done in ages either. It was great and I felt like my old self again. And then I accidentally erased the video. Y'all, I wanted to cry for about 2 seconds. All of that effort--I wanted to make a great blog post and video instead of just a picture.

Have you ever had that happen to you?

So instead of a fancy video, I present to you my Summer FabFitFun box in picture form. Better than describing it via charades or something, I guess? Seriously though, this was a nice box for the season and a steal at $49.95. By the way, I bought this, just as I have every one of these for the past couple of years, so it's not sponsored.














Here is what I got:


$54

This gorgeous ruana is going to be the star of your beach trips. Wear it as a poncho or wrap it around your waist as a sarong – either way, you'll love the versatility of this piece. I haven't fooled around with this yet. Wish I could have picked the pattern--there were 3.

$35

Drink up! This gorgeous glass water bottle will change the way you hydrate forever. Also, the convenient 500 mL size makes it easy to take on-the-go whether you're traveling or heading to the gym. I'll be honest, I know glass is better than other materials, but I'm scared I'm gonna break it.


$24

Protect and nourish your skin with this sheer, lightweight sunscreen. It contains broad spectrum SPF 50+ UVA/UVB filters and is enriched with powerful antioxidant and soothing Avene Thermal Spring Water. Love this brand so can't wait to use this.



$30

Glow, girl, glow! Originally formulated for high definition filming, this highlighter will give you the radiant picture perfect finish, every single time. It's lightweight, velvety powder formula goes on flawlessly yet remains invisible to the camera. Loved Cargo for years--random fact: they were the primary makeup brand used on the movie Clueless!


$29

Moisturize and soothe any dark circles and fine lines with this eye cream. It has certified organic grape and carrot juices blended with essential fatty acids to hydrate and nourish the eye area. I'll try this but my mom is a huge Juice Beauty fan so she will probably get this.


$20

Hair today, even better hair tomorrow! Your second (and third) day hair just got a major boost. This award-winning dry shampoo with oat milk is loved by celebs thanks to its powerful cleansing action, and natural absorbent microspheres which eliminate dirt, oil, and odors. A quick spray and your mane instantly regains volume and texture without white residue. I love this!

$28


Pack your bags and hit the road (or the skies) in epic style with this gorgeous passport cover and luggage tag set. The metallic vegan leather duo featuring printed lettering will have you looking chic wherever your adventures take you. There were 3 things you could get--a craft and a food one. I kind of am not into this--as I have plenty of luggage tags from past boxes. Meh.


$58

This necklace is a gem (literally)! Handmade and assembled in India, the necklaces feature stones with different attributes to help you live every day with positive intentions. My stones are white and mean focus or something. It's a cute dainty necklace. We didn't get to pick the color.


Vital Proteins’ Marine Collagen is an unflavored drinkable collagen powder that can be easily added to any beverage, hot or cold, for a healthier complexion and a life of vibrancy. Gluten free, sugar free, and non-GMO, the Marine Collagen Peptides contain 10 grams of natural collagen protein in each serving. I have taken collagen supplements but never in powder form. I'm excited to try!

Which of these did you like the best?

PS: I am still blogging, y'all! It's not going anywhere, so go back and see what posts you might have missed. I've missed your face around here.

  11. I took the BEST picture of Ricky & I at my last half marathon at the start... & accidentally deleted it. I was so heartbroken. I cant imagine all the work in a video. I'd be totally bummed.

  12. Oh dang, Elle, sorry that the video got deleted, I would have lost my mind! That said, FFF has never really gotten my interest mainly because I'm not a fan of lifestyle boxes and it's pricey when converted to CAD.

  14. I've filmed videos too before and they either got messed up or erased. It's no fun! This box looks nice! I love the way the water bottle looks! The highlight is pretty! I saw the white necklace from someone's Instagram story, it's so pretty!

  15. Oh no! That has most definitely happened to me before with photos and it's seriously the worst.

  26. Oh yes, sometimes I feel like screaming :) But I liked the photo post and as you asked, my absolute favorite product has to be the gems' necklace... I loved the idea behind it, the gems helping with some things... focus would be good for me too :) I also love Avene products. But as I said, the necklace is my favorite item now :)

  27. I've had two brk bottles. I left one at the gym and someone stole it and Jacob lost one. I've switched to the Target version until I can get myself together. Haha! They don't break though! I've dropped mine tons of times.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Haha I'll take the luggage tags if you don't want them ;) So wish I could get a box like that in Sing!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am really interested in the collagen supplements! I wonder if it absorbs better in that form!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I loved my summer box! No complaints on any of it! I love that the Michael stars ruana donates 25% of proceeds to causes involving domestic violence and abuse.
