FabFitFun Spring Box Opening!

   So lately I have been really wanting to try out a new subscription box(I still love Ipsy don't worry). I have heard SO much about FabFitFun on Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, etc. Naturally I had to try out this box. If you guys have been living under a rock for the last couple years and don't know what a subscription box is, a monthly or quarterly box filled with all sorts of goodies. Some boxes will have makeup some will have clothes, some even have food. Finding which box is for you is what matters. I wanted a box with a variety of things to try out and FFF had just that. FFF is a lifestyle box. Most subscription boxes come monthly or seasonally. In this case, the box comes seasonly. Now what really sold me on FabFitFun was the full size products. The first box I have received was the spring box which is super awesome and not to mention really pretty.  My favourite thing in the box would probably have to be the bath bomb trio because they smell so good, but everything in this box is awesome.

About the box

Oahu Trip Pictures

Hello everyone,
As promised I am doing the second part of my travel guide thing. Sorry I have not been able to post this sooner, I  had an overload of work since I was away an extra week due to being sick. 
  This year I had tons of fun in Oahu, even though we have been to this island several times previously it still feels like a new adventure each time.  Lots of people always ask me, "what's your favourite island?", my reply is always the same, which is that I cannot choose because they are all so wonderful. You seriously can't go wrong choosing an island. 
  I am very thankful to be able to go on trips like this and be able to share these memories with you guys.

I did not get any photos of shopping but I will list some of my favourite shopping areas and stores.
1.) Kailua shops: Mahina, Sand People, Global Village, SoHa Living
2.) Ala Moana Shopping Centre
3.) Waikele Outlets

  A little bit on where I stayed
Island: Oahu, Hawaii
Area: Kailua
Property type: Vacation rental off of VRBO

Lanikai Beach- near Kailua beach where we stayed

Right off of our property in Kailua- beautiful scenery and amazing waves

A highlight of my trip! The pillbox hike has beautiful views and  is super fun. I recommend going in the morning so that you do not get too got, especially when you do the full hike like we did.

Great view from the pillbox hike 

This is a picture of another small island from a scenic point along the highway near Sandy Beach- if you come in whale season be sure to visit here

Classic beach photo on Kailua Beach

I managed to sneak a photo of some spinner dolphins we saw on a wonderful snorkel trip which included three stops

A great place in Haleiwa to get Gelato is Gelato Hawaii

We stopped on the side of the road on the North Shore to get some cool pics of the waves

Another pic from the North Shore

On our last full day we went to an amazing beach that had some cool sand and shells- I cannot remember the name of the beach but I do know that it is near Turtle Beach on the North Shore

I always love to find cats in Hawaii, it has become somewhat a tradition. I named him Sunny

Last but not least- Sunset Beach North Shore- Amazing place to watch waves and immerse yourself in the Hawaiian lifestyle
