Hello my beautiful babes!
We have FINALLY made it to fall and I am lighting pumpkin candles as we speak! We are finally starting to feel settled here in our third-floor cove inside my aunt’s house. Still currently in the waiting game for jobs. REAL TALK. We both are kind of struggling to keep positive about finding jobs. We both are ready to get back into a routine and start working. Regardless of how things in life are going right now though, we are both trying to remain hopeful and just enjoy the current life we are living. On a happier note, since we have made it to fall, I am so excited to share my latest FabFitFun unboxing + review! For those of you who are new to reading my blog, I am a FabFitFun partner. I am not paid to share this content and all thoughts about this box and the products inside are my own real thoughts. I always share products and services that I am passionate about and truly love and FabFitFun is a service that I am totally living for! You pay a quarterly fee of 49.99 and you will receive a box every season that contains products that match your personality quiz along with additional (free) items that you pick. I absolutely love trying new products, so this box is the perfect excuse for me to step outside my comfort zone and try something new that I may have never have thought to buy for myself. All products are full size and the box’s value totals over $300 worth of products (so like a crazy deal)! If you are interested, in learning more about the box you can message me and I’d be happy to provide any insight. I will also leave a link below for you to use and try out your first box for $10 off the original price (so only $39.99)!
Now moving on to the items inside my box this fall:
amika Strand Perfect Ceramic Styler
This was one of my add on’s which I was pretty excited about not gonna lie. When I tried it… I wasn’t the biggest fan. I have pretty thick hair and the straightener that I use opens up wide so I am able to do a little more hair at a time and it looks pretty great in my opinion. This straightener did not open up wide enough and I felt like I was burning my hair in the process. Now, this is just my personal preference and I may try it again just to see if it changes my opinion, but personally, I will probably stick with my OG straightener for now!
Kate Spade New York Lunch Tote
I have never had a lunch tote like this before & so I was so excited to see this as one of my add on options! It’s totally my style and the tiny saying is everything. The material is high quality (of course because it’s Kate Spade) and the inside is lined to keep your lunch cool. I can’t wait to bring this to work!
BaubleBar Fara Ear Crawlers
I may have a slight obsession with these earrings. These were another add on item that I just had to have! They are the perfect simple statement earring that can go with basically anything you wear this fall. I love the BaubleBar brand & I am so happy to own a pair of their earrings!
Afterspa Hair Towel Wrap
Honestly, I haven’t used one of these towels since I was in middle school so I was kinda surprised that I received one of these in my box this fall. I definitely have enjoyed using this product so far. It keeps my hair all together while I get ready in the morning, so I can’t wait to keep using this in my everyday morning routine!
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Mask 6 Pack
These have to be some of the BEST under-eye masks I have ever used! These work so well and are supposed to deeply hydrate your skin, which in my case it did. It contains hyaluronic acid, aloe leaf extract, and lavender oil again to soothe and hydrate your under eyes. I love these masks so much and I can’t wait to use another one soon!
AVEDA Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair
This product was honestly a shocker for me. I don’t typically like using hair masks or put anything in my hair outside of shampoo, conditioner and some styling products, but this changed my tune slightly. The hair repair by AVEDA contains quinoa protein, macadamia oil, and soy to help protect your hair to heat styling. When I was working my internship this summer, I realized just how much heat styling I subject my hair to in the morning, so I was eager to try this when I received it. I tried it one morning after my shower and the product worked so well afterward! My hair felt softer ( a little greasy at the roots, but no biggie) and actually looked a lot healthier after I had dried it. I totally recommend this product because I absolutely LOVE AVEDA and now believe this product should be in all styling routines!
Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes in Juice Cleanse
Not going to lie to you, these were not my favorite. I love a good exfoliator in the shower or bath, but these did not really work well for me. They were very gummy and I didn’t feel a difference in the shower compared to my other exfoliators. I thought they smelled nice, but the cubes just broke apart in clumps and created a big mess. I think I may try them again just for the heck of it, but I probably won’t be reaching for it again. Sorry!
Human + Kind Body Souffle
This is the BEST smelling body lotion and boy does it work wonders! I have been slightly obsessed with this lotion lately. I have been using it on my hands and feet and they feel so hydrated and soft! It contains apricot oil and shea butter so it leaves your skin feeling constantly moisturized throughout the day. I totally recommend this brand and this body souffle to anyone who loves a good body lotion like myself!
NassifMD Detox Pads
At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about these, but after using them the past week, I have grown to love the Detox Pads! I haven’t used any form of face cleaning pad products since the Clearasil pad middle school days (they burned my skin), so I was a little apprehensive to try this product. Shockingly, I ended up loving them because they gently detox your pores and remove dead skin! I used them about 3 days a week both morning and night and my skin has never felt better. I totally recommend this product and I hope you take the time to get yours now!
So as you can see this box contained some highs and lows as far as products. But overall, I always am fascinated with the gifts I receive in my box! I have been receiving these boxes for 2 years now and I am always super pumped to share this awesome brand and their services.

I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week. I have a job interview in NYC on Thursday, so wish me luck! I am currently trying to get back into the writing swing of things for both this blog and PYM, so please be patient and I promise some new content will be coming your way soon. Love you guys & I will talk to you all again soon!
