It’s basically impossible to make time for yourself – but also 100% necessary for your sanity. Self-care comes in many different forms, like workouts, drinks with friends, pedicures, reading a book, yadda yadda. For me, I have a full-time job, a very busy toddler and a husband whose own job takes up a bit more time than I’d like (said every significant other ever). With our crazy schedules, I’ve become the master of making time for myself in ways that don’t take up much time.
I live for running errands alone, listening to podcasts while I drive and watching bad Bravo TV shows. I hate to admit it but I will – I could probably hold a more intelligent conversation about the current season of RHONY than the potty training book I’ve been trying to read for the past month.
What else do I do for self-care? I’ve obsessed with skincare. It’s my way of trying to control the inevitable aging process – retinol, vitamin c and hyaluronic acid are my current faves to combat my brown spots that popped up during pregnancy. I am a skincare guinea pig who will try ANYTHING IF IT PROMISES I WILL LOOK WELL-RESTED AND 25.
So I jumped at the chance to review the newest FabFitFun subscription box. Once every season, it comes right to my door and is loaded with full-size fashion, beauty, fitness and lifestyle products. And this year’s summer box is not one to miss. Not only is there a not-yet-released high-tech face brush, but there’s sunscreen, a ring dish and a bunch of other amazing items too. The best part? It retails for over $200, costs $49.99 and is $39.99 for your first box with code EM10.
So here’s an exclusive preview of what’s in the Summer Box. If you’d rather be surprised, click here and use the code EM10 for $10 off your first box and DO NOT SCROLL DOWN. If you’re all about spoilers (HELLO REALITY STEVE AND THE BACHELOR), then this breakdown is for you.
