Obsession of the Day: FFF Spring Box


As you all know, I’m a fan of the FabFitFun VIP Box. It’s kind of a big deal. And I swear each season it keeps getting better and better!

For those of you who missed the memo on the awesomeness that is the #FFFVIP box, I will catch you up. (But seriously, where have you been? It’s all I talk about!)

The FabFitFun VIP Box is packed with full-size premium products (curated by Giuliana Rancic and her amazing team of lifestyle gurus) delivered seasonally to your doorstep. (For additional information, see my previous gushfests here.)

My spring box actually arrived last week right before I flew out to California. While I was in sunny Los Angeles, I stopped by to visit all of my friends at FabFitFun headquarters and see where all the magic happens! I am so thrilled that I was able to fit that into my quick trip to Cali for LuckyFABB (more on that later).

While I was there I went to lunch with the amazing Katie Rosen Kitchens, Editor-in-Chief of FabFitFun and co-founder of the site alongside Giuliana. (Why I did not take a million selfies of us and copious photos of the fabulous sushi we consumed I have no idea. I blame my post flight zombie brain.)

During our chat, Katie clued me in to some of the fab items going into the much anticipated summer box! My lips are sealed until summer time, but trust me, it’s good stuff. If you want to get all up in the summer goodies, be sure to sign up and secure your box!

But first, let’s talk about the springtime goods:

The Better Chip Spinach & Kale Chips


Ok, hear me out on this. I know at first glance Spinach & Kale chips might seem weird, but seriously these are DELISH. They taste like healthy Fritos or something. Satisfying salty crunch without all the extra fat! I bought another bag immediately. Yum.

Cult Gaia Head Turbands


Cult Gaia is an off kilter, whimsical brand that celebrates the exploration of fantasy, fun, and everyone’s inner rebellious charm. These turbands are the perfect hair accessory – especially for festival season! Just ask Rachel Zoe.

Kai Perfume Oil


Kai’s intoxicating perfume oil fragrance is made with essential oils in a convenient and easy to use roll-on vial. It smells like gardenias and happiness. And it’s small enough to stash in your bag and keep with you at all times!

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo


I’m a hard sell when it comes to dry shampoo because I already have my favorites. I was pleasantly surprised with this one though! It won me over with the fresh lemony scent and the fact that there is zero trace of white residue when using it. It absorbs oil, cleanses without water, and adds volume just like the bottle claims it will! Love.

Merrithew Mini Stability Ball and DVD


I use these mini balls in my workout classes (when I actually go… eek) and I love them. I’m loving having one that I can use at home and take with me on the go, too! The DVD from the Merrithew Health & Fitness team is great too. Just pop it in and breathe out all the tension while building core stability and creating better posture.

Cover FX SPF 30 Protection Primer


THIS. This, you need. This water-resistant makeup primer features SPF 30 to make sure that you save that skin. The hydrating, smoothing formula makes blending a breeze and extends makeup wear so you won’t have to reapply!

Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt


Dermasuri’s Deep Exfoliating Mitt buffs away dead skin cells to reveal beautiful glowing skin for spring. Forget those expensive spa treatments and give yourself a little DIY exfoliation at home!

Level Shower Bombs


Seriously this is one of those things that I didn’t know I needed, but now that I know it exists I feel like I can’t live without it. Drop one in the bottom of your shower and breathe in the soothing scents of organic menthol and eucalyptus. Total at-home spa experience. Mmm.

So, that’s the scoop on the spring box. Total win. Ready to sign up for summer? Use code SUMMER5 and save five bucks. You’re welcome!

And don’t forget! FabFitFun, Always and I are hosting a sweet Twitter party tomorrow night at 8 p.m. EDT / 5 p.m. PDT! There will be tips from yours truly and giveaways galore. Don’t forget to follow me and RSVP! Hope to see you there! 🙂

Obsession of the Day: FabFitFun


In the spirit of digital karma (totally a term I stole from one of the panel discussions at LuckyFABB), I just wanted to take a minute to show some love for Giuliana Rancic’s FabFitFun. This article went live recently and I am still pinching myself! I am very thankful to be featured for the second time on this amazing site.

It’s really a wonderful resource chock full of healthy recipes, beauty secrets, fitness tips, and general lifestyle awesomeness… and I thought that long before they found me! It has been one of my go-to sites since I discovered it.

I adore pretty much anything Giuliana touches (Hello! Fashion Police especially!) which makes me double excited to be FabFitFun approved. If you haven’t noticed, G has about 52 thousand jobs (maybe even more than I do!), so she has a little help behind the scenes to keep FFF looking as good as it does. Her team is perfection and they create the best content to help you get fit, have fun, and be fabulous! If you like little old me and Martinis and Mascara, you will LOVE FabFitFun! Sign up for their daily emails and you will not regret it.

Also, if you somehow missed the memo on how much I love the FabFitFun VIP Box, click here for a recap. They are gearing up for the release of the winter box, so be sure to sign up soon if you want to get in on that!

Cheers to a life well lived! 😉

FabFitFun Fall VIP Box Review


You may remember me gushing love for FabFitFun after they gushed love for me a few months ago.

Get ready, because the love fest is not going to stop any time soon!

I am obsessed with the FabFitFun VIP box. Believe me when I say that The FabFitFun VIP box is the box to end all boxes. Delivered seasonally, the FFFVIP box features full sized products for a life well lived curated by the amazing Guiliana Rancic and her fabulous team.

It’s more of a lifestyle care package than a beauty specific box as the FabFitFun VIP box contains goodies that follow the well-rounded philosophy of the site. Featured products range from popcorn and vitamin supplements to fashion accessories and workout DVDs.

The best part is that shipping is FREE and you can get an entire box full of new, on-trend treasures for the cost of one product at mall prices. It’s $49.99 per season and so worth it for the amount of stylish goods that show up at your door.

So, whaaat’s in the booox? (Plus ten points for you if you get that reference!)

Here’s the scoop on some of my favs from the FFFVIP Fall edition: 

Canary Scarf by Gojana and Griffin


This airy cotton scarf walked into my life just in time for my trip to New York! While packing, I was looking at my very Florida closet getting nervous because I basically needed to buy an entire new wardrobe for my three day NYC trip. But thanks to this songbird print cutie, I was covered in the scarf department! I’m actually wearing it right now… typing away on my laptop in Manhattan. This scarf is adding to the very Carrie Bradshaw moment I’m having. I love it! (Added bonus: The regular retail price of this scarf is $57… which means that the $49.99 FFF box has already paid for itself. Hello, savings!)

Orville Redenbacher Gourmet Naturals Popcorn


I am a popcorn junkie. Microwave, stovetop, air popper, whatever – I don’t discriminate. This particular kind pops in the microwave (in one of those genius pop up bags), but it tastes fresh and delish without that heavy I-just-poured-on-my-weight-in-movie-theater-butter taste. And it’s less calories.

Starlooks 5 Shade Shadow Palette in Ibiza


The Starlooks 5 Shade Shadow Palette in Ibiza features 5 expertly coordinated shades for a beautiful (and easy!) smokey eye. It contains all the classic colors you need. With these shades you can take it from a neutral eye to serious smokesville. So pretty!



Helloooo, drinkwel! This might be my favorite find from the box. It is the world’s first multivitamin for healthy people who drink designed to replenish nutrients, support healthy liver function, and help your body process alcohol. Um, sign me up!! I took the supplements soon after receiving my FFFVIP box, and Drinkwel gave me an energy boost… and… wait for it… cured my hangover!! I woke up with zero effects after a night of martini tasting. (Which is part of my job, people. Don’t judge!) I want to shout to the rooftops how much I love these supplements and how important it is to take care of yourself when you’re getting hammered (or as I call it, “working”).

Spa Ritual Nail Polish in Health, Wealth, and Happiness


This shade is a rich iridescent blend of metallic blues and purples. It is so beautiful, so on-trend for fall, and so going on my toes next time I get a pedi.

Health Warrior Acai Berry Chia Bar


I feel very Dr. Oz right now and am happy to admit that I actually like the taste of this bar! This 100 calorie treat is packed with healthy ingredients that provide natural energy, powered by chia.

Surface Trinity Protein Cream


This wonderful concoction strengthens, smooths, and repairs the cuticle of the hair. It also provides natural sun protection and smells amazing. Love.

Awkward Family Photos Mini Game Pack


This pack-o-fun includes trivia cards from the hysterical new board game, Awkward Family Photos. It’s a super funny interactive game with questions based around these painfully hilarious pics.

Standing Slim with Sadie Lincoln DVD


Confession: I’m a little more fab and fun than I am fit right now… so this is perfect for me! This workout DVD features barre3 exercises that are designed to multi-task for a toned upper body, lifted seat, shapely legs, and strong core. Amazeballs.

The box also comes with coupons for some of the items if you wish to repurchase… which I totally do. Fun right? Speaking of coupons, if you sign up for the box using my coupon code MMNov13, you can save $5 off the box! You’re welcome. 😉

That code is only valid through Nov. 30, so don’t wait too long to score the best hand-selected items in beauty, fashion, fitness, and wellness from Giuliana Rancic’s FabFitFun!

And… spoiler alert: I have many more exciting things in the works with FabFitFun right now! So, you’ll have to stay tuned for the official announcement. In the meantime, go sign up for the VIP box! You’ll be glad you did!
