Little Skinnies: FabFitFun Fall Box 2016

I’ve done a post on FabFitFun boxes before. I actually enjoyed the welcome box, spring, and summer boxes so much that I’ve stuck with them. The price used to make me second guess the box every time I would get a notice right before my box would ship, but I’ve stayed with them – $49.99 VIP price and all. So, my Fall box came toward the beginning of October. I am not a lover of Fall or Winter – like some people. I will never be running to Starbucks for the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Fall and Winter just aren’t my seasons – but I do love the two major holidays within those months (Thanksgiving and Christmas)!

So, back to this box. There are a lot of wonderful goodies in this box for the Fall lover, and even I had to admit that the box put me in better spirits for the season.

The Goodies:

  1. Modcloth Blanket Scarf
  2. The BrowGal Brow Gel
  3. Mullen & Sparrow French Lavender Body Oil
  4. Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum
  5. Tumbler
  6. Cottonelle Wipes
  7. Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer & A Spongelle Percentage Off Offer
  8. Pure Cosmetics Nude Eyeshadow Palette
  9. A Coloring Book & Color Pencils
  10. Trial Size – Secret Deoderant

I love the blanket scarf, and it is super cozy! I have heard from the FabFitFun forum that the it may unravel a little too quickly. I haven’t had that problem. I like it just fine with the tumbler in hand. And, that tumbler is filled with a macchiato – not some PSL mess!

The brow gel was amazing, and I made sure to post my use on snapchat.

The oil has been perfect! It smells wonderful. The smell isn’t over powering. I use both the oil and the Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum before I settle for bed.

I have not had a chance to put the eyeshadow palette to use, nor have I used the body wash infused buffer. The buffer smells so good, I did not want to use it on a routine shower or bath. I want to put it to use for a special bath occasion. The same with the eyeshadow palette.

The rest of the items were ok, but not my favorites. The cottonelle wipes were put to use by our toddler, who thought they were her flush-able wipes. The coloring book and pencils are on my nightstand, and have yet to be used. Maybe one day, I will color to de-stress after a long day. Then, I can tell you if this coloring thing really works. And, the deodorant went right in my gym bag.

As you can see, these boxes definitely give you some good items! I think, enough to be worth the $39 or $49 every 3 months. The Fall boxes have all been shipped, but the Winter boxes will be out soon! Sign up here and get 20% off: FabFitFun – 20% Off


Little Skinnies: FitFabFun

Here I am two broken iPhones later, and you would think life could go on without a phone. I’m sad to say that I felt lost the last two and a half weeks without my phone. #firstworldproblems

However, over the course of this down period, I received two wonderful boxes of goodies. I received my FitFabFun Welcome Box, and it was definitely packed with goodness! I’ll mention the other box of goodness in a later post, but if you follow me on snapchat – you already know. I lucked up and signed up for FitFabFun during a promotional period. They had some special, and I only paid $25 for my introductory box. The box was packed, and everything was the actual size! None of that trial size mess from this box!


  • WREN 14kt gold dipped and black sapphire heart necklace
  • Passport to Beauty’s Tibetan Goji Berry Eye Serum
  • FRENDS “The Donna” Earbuds
  • GORGE “I’ll Make You Look Amazing” Daily Spray
  • COSMOBODY Co-branded Jump Rope
  • ZOYA Nail Polish
  • ORGANIC VALLEY Organic Balance Milk Protein Shake in Dark Chocolate
  • SHOPTIQUES.COM Gift card for $25

I’ve been wearing the necklace, and have received several compliments. The Goji Berry eye serum has been incorporated into my facial care routine. So, we shall see. Luckily, I was able to try out the earbuds while in travel. They worked well, and helped me clear out all the noise of the airport while in route. I haven’t had a chance to try the daily spray, and the reality is that my hair is a touchy subject for me. So, I may not use this until I have no other choice. I like to stick with what I know when it comes to my hair, for now. I have not used the polish either. I felt the gray color was more a fall or winter color. The polish may realistically sit with the others until the colder weather comes back around. Who knows, maybe… maybe not… However, the jump rope is in my office. I take at least two breaks a day, and just jump rope! How fun is that?! This box won with the jump rope alone, because it definitely helps me stay a little active while at work. Lastly, the gift card! I had never visited before, and this little teaser motivated me to visit the site. The site was great, and I wished I had more then $25, but I will make it work, and get something to make my heart smile for the upcoming Spring t-shirt weather.

I did skip the Spring box. I cancelled, because I had to be sure I was going to love this service! And, I do! I will definitely be back on board in time for the summer box! Seriously, this box is worth $49.99 (shipping included).

Little Skinnies: Little Boxes = So Much Happiness

Hey there everyone! It has been sometime since I have blogged. I’ve been in thought about what I truly want The Skinny Plus to be, and hoping to develop a good brand as I continue this journey. 

A colleague at work gave me a great idea, and this post is the start of my “Little Skinnies.” Little Skinnies are small snippets to give each of my readers a look at a great deal, a quick recipe, and anything else that maybe note worthy in a short post. 

I’ve been sharing this wonderfulness from Walmart Beauty that gave me a little bit of happiness a couple of weeks ago. Walmart Beauty now has Beauty Boxes; similar to those by Essence, Birchbox, Allure, etc. 

The best thing about the Walmart Beauty box is that it is FREE! You only have to pay a $5 shipping fee! 

 The box had a lot of little goodies that warmed my heart. Some of the items I put to the side for travel. The sample sizes are perfect to take on the go. So, head on over to the Walmart Beauty Box site, and get yourself a little bit of happiness in the mail… Well, in about two weeks.
