I LOVE this time of year. As brutal as the winters in Chicago are, nothing makes me happier than decking out the house with festive touches and spending cozy nights at home with my family. You all know that I’m a social butterfly, so when it’s freezing outside, I always use it as a good excuse to stay at home for some much-needed relaxation. As much fun as the holidays are, it can be a little stressful trying to buy presents for everyone and prep for the endless parties.

I love shopping for other people and spoiling all my loved ones during the holidays, but nothing reminds me to slow down and take some time out for myself more than when I see my FabFitFun box on my doorstep. The seasonal subscription box comes 4 times a year and is always a welcome nudge to slow down and put me first for a few moments. Each FabFitFun box is filled with 8-10 full-sized products from top brands in beauty, wellness, fitness, homeware, and fashion. The goodies I’ve gotten in past boxes have become some of my new favorite must-have products, and the Winter 2019 box did not disappoint! 

First of all, the packaging is always SO CUTE, and the Winter 2019 box is no exception. One thing that’s guaranteed with FabFitFun is that the products are always the perfect mix of elevated everyday items mixed with more special pieces that you’ve always wanted to buy for yourself.

The first item I grabbed was the Unhide Lil’ Marshmallow Faux Fur Blanket. I’m obsessed with all things homeware, and this cozy blanket is perfect for snuggling up and watching movies. Plus, the beige color means it goes with everything!

I love to play with makeup looks when I got to holiday parties, so I’m super excited to try the Beauty Bakerie Proof Is In The Puddin’ Pallette. It’s got 4 mattes and 4 shimmer shades, in lovely warm brown tones and touches of gold sparkle. Perfect from going from day to night. Speaking of, the Vera Moda Color Switch Solo I got lets you clean your makeup brushes without any water or liquid required. This is going to save me so much time getting ready!

As I said, Winters are BRUTAL in Illinois, and my poor hair always suffers the effects of the crazy snowstorms. So I was excited to discover the Dry Bar Rally Prime & Prep Detagangle Spray sitting at the end of my box. I love getting my hair blown out at Dry Bar, and I’ve used a ton of their products before, so I knew this one was gonna be a winner. I can already tell after one use that it’s going to be my number one hair product to get me through the cold months.

FabFitFun never disappoints with what they put in their boxes, but I love that members get to choose some of the items, too! I chose the Ban.Do Bluetooth Shower Speaker! I just redid my bathroom, and I can’t wait to blast cheesy Christmas music on the shower! Such a cute addition to my bathroom makes my morning routines a lot more fun!

Their team does a great job of selecting the core products in every box, too. I’m loving the Cuccio Somatology Calm + Clean Epsom Salt Hand & Body Wash, which has super relaxing essential oils like lavender oil. And it smells a m a z i n g !

For me, seeing my FabFitFun box always signifies the beginning of a new season, and all of the products help me prep so that I can look and feel my best. Oh, and did I mention, each box is worth at least $200 and costs only $49.99?! SUCH a great deal. FabFitFun helps me slow down in the midst of all the madness of daily life and relax a little. It’s also the perfect excuse to stay indoors and have an at-home pamper night. Roll on the cold weather!
