Fall in Love with Fabfitfun

 

Some women buy manicures, pedicures, and massages to pamper themselves.  One way I like to spoil myself is with the Fabfitfun subscription box (click link to sign up and receive a discount).  I enjoy receiving the box in the mail and it usually arrives on a day I need some positive vibes.  I’m hoping the mailman realizes the coincidence and understands that I’m not some crazy stalker as I wait for him to deliver my box!

If you are looking for a thoughtful gift item for that special someone this would make an amazing surprise!  Items are a mixture of skin care, hair care, make-up, beauty, fitness, and even jewelry related items!  I haven’t been disappointed with a box yet!

 

I just received my box today and these are the items that came with my initial thoughts…

Mer-Sea & Co. Cozy Wrap:  This looks like it might be my favorite item of the box.  Feels thick, soft and of high quality!  This will be perfect for the cooler weather on the way.  As a teacher my classroom temperature fluctuates, so I will be keeping this in the room for those moments I need a little warmth.

I purchased an extra…not sure if I will give it as a gift or hold my first giveaway. Hmmmm….decisions decisions.

dpHUE ACV Hair Rinse:  This is another item I know I will love!  Every once in a while I rinse my hair with apple cider vinegar to clean it and bring back shine, so I’m sure I will love this item!  I can’t wait to give it a try!

 

Cotext wire heart ceramic jewelry holder:  This is a cute item, but honestly I don’t have much space on my vanity for it.  I’m sure other Fabfitfun members will be looking to trade something for it, so that is what I will probably do.  Trade anyone?

DECO Miami Cuticle Oil (Lavender):  I am a huge fan of lavender and take care of my nails, so I’m excited to give this item a try!

treStiQue Lip Color: (Matte)  I don’t wear lip color often and when I do it’s usually lighter shades, so this will be a change for me to try.  I have a couple darker colors, but haven’t found one that is a fit for me yet.  I’ll be giving this a try to see if this is the one!

The Jetset Diaries Beanie:  I will either gift this item or trade it.  I have a black beanie already in a higher quality, so I wont be needing this.

Private Party Gym Bag:  I received the “Gym & Juice” bag in my box.  Since I have been slacking on going to the gym and I don’t need a bag because I change at home I will be either gifting this item or trading it.  I like it, but have enough bags as it is.  Cute item though!

Whish Beauty Renewing Mud Mask:  Since I love mud masks I’m sure this will be a much loved item from the box!  My skin is so much cleaner and softer after, so I will be trying this sooner rather than later.

MYTAGALONGS Hot & Cold Gel Pack:  I’m sure being pregnant this will find quite a bit of use!  I’m not hoping for a migraine to try it, but I’ll be pulling this out if it does.

The Cottonelle fresh wipes will either go in my guest jar or to one of the kids for their sports bags.

 

There you have it… a quick review of the items in the Fall Fabfitfun Box!   It isn’t my most favorite box FFF has sent out, but it is well worth the money—I have items I wouldn’t normally purchase for myself to try which I think is one of best parts about receiving them.

24 Weeks Pregnancy Update

 

24 weeks pregnant collage.jpg

How far along: 24 Weeks
Baby is size of a: according to my Ovia App he is the size of an eggplant
Total weight gain: I don’t weigh myself at home, but I will find out Friday at my next appointment
Maternity clothes:  Wearing them every day!  Just bought a new dress on amazon and was a little worried because it isn’t technically a maternity dress, but it was just delivered yesterday and I love it!
Sleep:  Sleeping better, but he wakes me up with all the movement sometimes.
Best moment this week:

1.  Craig surprising me with a “in between seasons” Fabfitfun box with some new maternity shirts for the upcoming cooler weather.  He really goes above and beyond to make sure I’m comfortable and taken care of.  He has to be the most creative and thoughtful man on the planet!

2. Our sunset date with McKinely…we took some great silhouette pictures.  We were even able to take one of McKinley giving the peace sign which she loved—she does not like photos taken of herself, so this was a huge surprise!
Symptoms:  Heartburn is still in full force…call me the Pepcid popper!  Since I really do not enjoy taking medication every day I drank apple cider vinegar mixed with water before bed last night and no heartburn. I’ll be trying this again to avoid taking meds!

 

Food cravings: Goulash…yummm!
Food aversions:  None
Gender: Boy
Name: No name yet…I’m in love with the name Curtis, but Craig has an uncle with the same name which would be a little awkward.  We are still searching for a name for him.
Labor signs: Too early for that
What I miss:  My non-maternity clothes…I miss having more options to pick from.
What I look forward to:  Now that the nursery is painted I’m looking forward to beginning to design it
Milestones: You can SEE my stomach move when he is moving around in there
Bump: For 24 weeks I feel larger than my previous pregnancies…a little scary considering they were large babies.
