Unboxing: FabFitFun VIP Spring 2015

I was searching and apparently I never did an unboxing of FabFitFun on this blog! I got a two box deal of RueLaLa and decided to take it for a spin as an alternative to Popsugar and here is the second box I received. Some quick background though on this box. This is a quarterly box so it comes four times a year and it is a women's lifestyle box. Each box will contain a variety of curated items that are typically season specific. This box costs $50 per quarter, but they've recently launched their annual program where boxes are slightly discounted and you will have the option to choose some of the variations in your box. I wasn't blown away by the Winter box, there were a few things I liked and some other things that were clearly forgettable because I honestly couldn't even tell you everything that was in it now. So let's check out what came in the Spring box!

Jules Smith Scarf in Modern Art | Retail Value: $42
These small spring scarves I have no clue how to wear. I'm not a fan of having it just tightly wrapped around my neck, honestly I find it pointless because you can't really see the pattern. There was a variation on this item and I must say I was hoping for the Watercolor print which had more white in it and seemed like something I would be able to wear. This item was a miss for me but I'm sure I can find it a nice home.
Palmetto Derma Collagen Booster and Restoration Serum | Retail Value: $48
Serums I am a huge fan of and this one is suppose to be a super free radical fighting super serum! I have an excess of serums right now so this is something I will enjoy using...but eventually.
Merrithew 3 DVD Set "Intense Body Bast" + $25 Gift Card | Retail Value: $61
Couldn't tell if the value included the gift card or not but it's awesome there is no minimum order so I may just get myself something off the site. I appreciate the workout DVD however these are workouts targeted toward intermediate and advanced fitness level people so this is something I wouldn't even try to attempt for awhile. I feel like they would have been better off with a set that included all levels or possibly a beginner/intermediate demographic.
ORLY Nail BB Creme + ORLY Nail Polish in Cake Pop | Retail Value: $23.50
Now I've seen everything with nail BB creme. I think I can almost say I'm excited for this duo. Cake Pop has the best name ever and is a lovely pale pink. I don't have a pale pink in my collection that is easy to work with so maybe this one is it. I have been suffering with brittle nails that are peeling so perhaps this BB creme will actually help out!
OFRA Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brush Duo (#11 and #20) | Retail Value: $45.90
Dang are they really that expensive?? One is an eyeshadow brush and the other is a concealer brush. I have more than enough makeup brushes so I'm actually going to keep these in the plastic so I can gift them to someone.
Yasi Metallic Flash Tattoos | Retail: $36
I don't understand the craze of flash tattoos so I'm not crazy about getting these.
Rifle Paper Co. Cities Coasters Set | Retail: $16
These are actually really cute and something I will use. However wish they were made from something sturdier than card stock because I'm scared of them wearing away after a few uses with hot drinks or condensation.
Sprout It App Card + Miracle Grow Gro-able Seed Pod | Retail Value: $1.49
This is really neat, you basically just peel off the top and stick it in the ground. This is for a basil plant and I think this will be great to grow for some pesto adventures in the future!
Cosmos Creations Premium Puffed Corn | SPONSORED
I mean I'll never say no to salted caramel snacks so I'm sure this will be a hint. I just wish the bag was bigger!
Vow To Be Chic Gift Card + Hello Fresh Gift Card | SPONSORED
These are both sponsored gift cards and definitely come with catches so I probably won't use these.

Honestly I wasn't wowed by the box and right now I'm standing at no I won't purchase myself a subscription. There really wasn't anything in this box that made me excited. I definitely will keep my eye out on spoilers and maybe I will change my mind though, so stay tuned!
