Smartass & Sass

Anyone who knows me knows; sarcasm is my second language. Heck, sometimes it’s my first! 😂 Due to that fact, I could not resist when I found out there was a subscription box for sarcasm lovers!

The original box gives you a variety of products that all apply to a different theme each month. Recently they expanded on that and added a sarcastic Tshirt box. Can’t decide which box you want? You don’t have to, you can opt for the ‘Big Box’ that includes the original box and the Tshirt in one box!

To give you an idea of the things you might recieve, I’m reviewing my last box below. This is what your typical box will look like:

The theme for this box was ‘That’s My Jam’ The first item is the dishcloth. Now, while the saying is cute, the texture is not really something I would use on a regular basis.

Now the Koozie on the other hand is just adorable and functional at the same time.

Almost all the boxes include some type of notepad or tablet and this one was no exception:

And what’s a pad without a pencil??

This cute little box is actually a planter that includes both the soil and seeds. So far I don’t have any growth just yet, so I guess I really can’t touch this! Corny, I know!

This box also includes this clever little spoon to make things a little interesting in the kitchen.

Now the cards are also a frequently included item. For people like me, who like the occasional paper correspondence in this mostly digital world it works.

This is probably my favorite item in the whole box. First of all I’m a major coffee addict so one with the bonus sarcastic quote is hitting the jackpot.

Of course if you opt for the shirt as well, you would have received this shirt with this box. Trust me when I say it is definitely a conversation starter when you go out in public wearing it!

Fab Fit Fun

Well I am now on my fourth box from Fabfitfun. If you are not aware of how it works, it is a seasonal box that arrives with full size samples of everything from makeup and skin care to bags and jewelry. Boxes are $49.99 per season or of course you can become a Select member by paying annually at $179.99

Now I went the seasonal route to see what all the hype was about. Like most subscription boxes there are some things you love and some – not so much. Put it this way, I’m still on the fence regarding continuing or canceling.

The items are full size as they promise. Unfortunately not everything will appeal to everyone. There have been things I loved initially but hated later. For example, one box had an amazing throw that I loved on sight. It was plush and beautiful and felt amazing. Unfortunately it shed everywhere on everything. And I do mean everything. I looked like a shedding cat had been in my lap and I don’t have a cat! I even tried washing it. It only got worse. Needless to say it got shoved in a closet. Then there was a necklace that I thought was gorgeous, I wore it once and it started changing colors.

Don’t get me wrong, there have also been things I love. My favorite mug so far has been a wonderful design from a collaboration they did with Ayesha Curry. It’s my go to every morning!

But I digress, getting back to the most recent box. It’s better than the previous boxes I’ve recieved so far. Now how do I judge that? There are fewer items in this one that I will be giving away than normal. 😂

The boxes do all have great design and packaging.

This one came with a handy massager, I’ll probably never use it but who knows. If anything it will just become junk in the closet.

Now the eye mask, I love. Not only is it an attractive design but it comes with a nice cooling packet that I can’t wait to try.

The lovely ridge filler will definitely be a give away since I get my nails done regularly. However it may be great for someone who does her own hands.

The lip colors are cute. However they don’t seem to last very long. Perhaps they are good as long as you are just staying in.

The reversible clutch was cute and I was looking forward to using it. Unfortunately my zipper was broken so that will end up being just junk unless I can figure out how to fix it.

This I love, it’s super cute. I’m a little scared to wear it because I don’t want it to change colors. However, I am going to give it a shot because it’s just too cute to pass up.

I’m a fan of lotion so this came in handy. It does have a great smell and a nice consistency so that’s a plus for me.

I love candles, so I was also happy about this. The fragrance is great as well so that’s a major plus.

This seems cute, have not tried it just yet but I’m willing to give it a try if it helps my lips.

All in all it was better than normal so for now I will give it at least one more try before making a decision one way or the other. Have you tried it? What was your experience?
