What is it?

Over the years I saw a lot of excitement about the Fabfitfun subscription box all over social media and I wanted to see what the hype was about. I myself, like to explore through different subscription services to get my hands on a variety of products. Usually, services come with sample size products which is the best way to see if you like the product or not.

 

With FabFitFun, you receive full-sized fashion, beauty and fitness products that are worth more than $200, just for $49.99! There’s no commitment – you can enroll for just a season to see if you like what you’re getting or do it annually and save a few dollars.

One thing different about this box is that you can see what you’re getting before you place your order versus other subscription services where you kind of just get a surprise in the mail.

 

The Products:

Summer 2018 Total Value $340.99 –

  1. Tarte Tarteist PRO glo highlight & contour palette (I already have one so I’m holding it off for a future giveaway!) – Value $45.00
  2. Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator – Value $29.00, I was excited about seeing this in here!
  3. Orlando Play Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant Treatment Spray – Value $34.00
  4. FOREO LUNA! fofo – This was why I re-subscribed for this seasons box, the value of this is $89.00!
  5. COOLA Classic Face SPF 50 White Tea – Value $32.00
  6. Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish – Value $14.99
  7. Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel – Value $39.00
  8. Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case – Value $58.00

 

Worth it?

As you can see, this box is worth $340.99. I actually did spend $45.00 on the Tarte PRO go palette last year so the prices are pretty accurate. If you are into subscriptions and like trying out new things, I think FabFitFun is a great way to do so to get a variety of products. First-time subscribers can always find $10 coupons online!

Work Essentials

Colors are everything. That may sound pretty odd coming from me because if you look into my closet I can safely say that 75% of it is filled with all black, white and gray. But when it comes to my stationary, I love my colors; my highlighters, pens, stickies – you name it.

Starting a new job is always exciting. You get to make your desk your happy place now by decorating and adding a touch of your own personality to it. Of course, having my obsession with Kate Spade, I saw this cute little notebook and just had to get it. What better way to start off a new job with a fun and colorful notebook to jot things down in?

Reflect. 

  
With the year coming to an end, it’s a great time to reflect on the past year. For me, this year wasn’t the easiest but I made it through with the support of my loved ones. 
Someone once told me that doing what you love the most will be the hardest thing to ever do. I’ve found myself not happy with what I was doing with myself this year. I’m always used to being there for others and helping others yet I’ve never been able to realize my own problems within.
I hate to admit that the past few months I found myself being selfish. I was too busy dreading my work life and taking it out on my personal life. But that’s not the way to fix problems; it’s to be able to admit to it and open up and ask for help. Luckily, I have been blessed to have those who I can turn to any hour of the day to listen to me. 
In this upcoming year, I hope to gain back my selfless side and continue to be there for others. Not to let my problems burden within myself and to focus on fixing the issues rather than holding it off. To better understand how to deal with my problems and not let myself give up. No one is perfect. We all make mistakes and that’s okay. It’s to be able to understand the mistakes and try to better yourself. I myself am no where near perfect but i hope to become a better person each and everyday. 
Life is too short to live with regret. Love the people who treat you right. Believe that everything happens for a reason. Be daring. If you get a chance, take it. Nobody said it would be easy but it’ll be worth it. 

We all go through our ups and downs but it’s about figuring out what the next step is going to be. Take a step back and focus on the goal. Let the people around you be your support system and help you get there. But most importantly, believe in yourself. Anything you set your mind to is possible. 

Happy Holiday!

The Winter Palace

New York City is the place to be around this time of year. My favorite part are the window displays. This year, Saks Fifth Avenue had displays of the six icy wonders of the world and the seventh being the Winter Palace building at Saks Fifth Avenue in lights above the face of the building.

  1. The Winter Palace at Saks Fifth Avenue
  2. The Great Barrier Reef
  3. The Icy Eiffel Tower
  4. The Sub-Zero Sphinx
  5. The Frosty Taj Mahal
  6. The Great Wintry Wall of China
  7. The Ice-Cold Colosseum

Each display portrayed some kind of icon in this generation. I love the Marchesa Bridal and all the details that went into each window. Don’t miss out on the light show at Saks if you’re there!

Keep on sparkling, xo!

 

Dream Big.

Often times, we find ourselves at a point in life where we’re not feeling our best. At times like this I take a step back and reevaluate my life. Someone once told me that doing what you love the most will be the hardest thing. Just remember that your hardest times will lead to the greatest moments of your life. It will all be worth it in the end.

Looking at this picture always reminds me of why I started Sheer and Sparkles; simply because I love it. Don’t ever settle for something you’re not happy doing. Keep on striving for the best.

The “It Bag”.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect tote for school since I entered as a freshman to college. I’ve gone through so many bags and none were just perfect enough to fit in all my books with my laptop. The one thing I look for is compartments. I love, love, LOVE having different sections in my bag to be able to have everything organized.

One thing I love doing on my free time is just researching the latest trends in fashion and beauty. During my search for the perfect bag, I came across Dagne Doger. I was so excited that I thought it was too good to be true. I watched many reviews on YouTube and read all the reviews; did Instagram searches just to see if this bag was the dream bag I was looking for. Happy to say that it was! It felt like the bag was personally made for me. I’ll give you a few of the details below and the link to go see for yourselves!
