This past weekend, I was invited to experience a sampling of what MarketStreet, one of the largest open-air marketplaces in the Greater Boston area, has to offer.
Living just south of Boston, Lynnfield (on the North Shore) just isn’t a place that I frequent often. It’s about a 45 minute drive. But when I was offered the opportunity to join some fellow Boston bloggers, to “stroll the street”, I was all in. We spent the day “retail hopping” from one shop to another where we learned about some of the outdoor mall’s newest boutiques and foodie hot spots.
First stop! Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse for brunch. It was Sunday after all, and can you really call Sunday a good Sunday without brunch!? I think not…
As promised, a quick review of one of the iced tea flavors from David’s Tea. I ended up getting the GrapefruitGranita flavor instead of the Rainbow Sherbet, by the way, and given the taste of the Grapefruit, Sherbet is next on my list! What an incredible fresh, tangy flavor. YUM! Again…I’m not a tea person, but I really, really liked this one!
That said, at what point do I throw in the towel, and admit that maybe I am a tea person? Or rather, maybe I’m becoming one? Hmm, I don’t know if I can go THAT far just yet, but it’s clear that I’m certainly on my way! Who knew!?
Subscription boxes are all the rage right now. And for good reason! They’re convenient, they allow you to try multiple items at one time, and what’s in the box is always a surprise. (Who doesn’t like those!?)
Unlike most boxes, the FabFitFun box has a mix of everything. Well, not everything, but a lot of stuff! I’ve been eyeing this box for some time, but I hadn’t pulled the trigger. Frankly, I wasn’t sure the box would be worth it. (It’s $49.99 per box – pst,discount below!) But after a friend gushed about how amazing her recent box was (shout out to LJ!), I had to check it out for myself.
Before you can get your box, you’re asked to fill out a quick style profile. This is so that the stylists at FFF can get an idea of your personal likes and dislikes so that down the line, they can customize your box. It took me just a few minutes to fill out my profile and my first box was on its way!
About a week later…I had the most gorgeous package waiting for me on the porch.
This kit comes with a lip liner, plumping gloss and a liquid matte lipstick. This alone is worth what I paid for the box! I love the nude color, too. I have a hard time finding nude shades that I like, but this one is awesome. It’s the perfect “everyday” shade.
Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator by Dr. Brandt
It’s recommended that you only exfoliate 1-2 times a week, when using a microderm formula, so I’ve only used it once so far, but my skin has never felt so smooth and looked so bright! This specific formula contains aluminum oxide crystals and smoothing botanicals to polish away dead cells.
Speaking of the beach, this little pouch is the perfect bag to toss all your essentials into when hitting the sand. Sometimes I don’t want a huge beach bag, but of course I need my phone and lip gloss – that’s where this guy comes in.
Packed with Biotin (the stuff that makes your hair and nails tough!), these Strawberry-flavored gummies are too good. Seriously. They’re like Pringles! Once you pop, you just can’t stop! But you must. They’re a vitamin, not a candy. (A reminder to myself!)
So there you have it! That’s the Spring 2017 FabFitFun box. The way that this subscription service works is on a seasonal basis, so the next box will be the Summer 2017 box. *Though the Spring box is still available now – for a limited time!
If you’re interested in checking out FabFitFun, you can get $10 off your first box, making it only $39.99! Seriously, it’s a total steal (see above). Want in? Use this link to get the deal, and reap the rewards!
