Subscribtion Box Battles: Fab Fit Fun vs. Target- Natural and Regular

Back to battle:

Fab Fit Fun has been in the subscription boxing arena for years!

But, it underwent some major management changes, however we decided to give it a try again.

Fab Fit Fun-- is a quarterly box and it is filled with amazing things:
All of their products are not samples!
They had products such as wraps for the bed or picnic blanket, earrings, full size product of Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion, Karua face masks four in a box, and a MILLY bag for your wet suit, all of these products retail well over 45.00 each.

Target Box--
This month Target tried something new and put together an all natural box and a regular box.

Target has an all natural box which has samples of Espom Salt Soak, Raw Sugar Body Wash, Yes to Charcoal Face Mask, Hello Toothpaste, etc.

Target's regular box has products such has  full size Sally Hansen nail enamel top coat and base, full size Rimmel London Eye Pencil, and mini shampoo's, etc.

Frugality Alert: Spring/Summer Fun Tips

Spring and Summer is upon us as the temps in NYC are trying to latch on to the 60's, so desperately.

Here is how you can take advantage of all the great spring and summer events in NYC.

Concerts:

There are tons of free concerts, but you have to arise a little bit early!

The todayshow.com is known for there free summer concerts and the first artist up is Cheryl Crow!!

There is also gma.yahoo.com for there free outdoor concerts which last year was pretty amazing.

So you aren't into waking up early, but this is a great way to send your out of town guests into the city and they come back early in time for a great dinner.

Health and Fitness:

We discovered that at Samsung 837 store there are free Yoga classes that you can take on weekends.

Also the Highline great outdoor activities including free Yoga as well.

Bryant Park has a group yoga class as well and mats are free.

Day Getaways:

So you decided on a staycation, that's fine check the MTA- LIRR for there rates on One Day Getaway…

Prepping for Summer with items for Playdates, Spring Cleaning and House Guests

We were in Target just the other day and looking through the 1.00 to 3.00 bins and what did we find???

We found all 1.00 Dr. Seuss playing card decks for the kids we found erasers, pencils, stickers, sticker books, and bags to match the theme of the party. Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish things perfect for a child's party or summer play date with the kids. Newer items such as Finding Dory, Trolls were 3.00 but they are still new for kids. The standards such as  Elsa from Frozen, Batman, Stars Wars and also in the 1.00 bin and of course all of these items were authentic, Target only is allowed to sell licensed products from Disney and certain authors.

Even mini cans of play dough were .99 cents and dig in the back of aisles and what did we find authentic Hot Cars for .90 cents each and packs of 4 were 4.00, so if your kids are having play dates this summer bring along a gift bag of goodies one for your child and the other and watch them have loads of fun.

The total on everything…

The Beauty Spot : Clean Beauty

Were back!!!

Spring is here, spring is here! That is our mantra around here while we were once again shoveling snow!

But, we went a shopping!

We are trying as many all natural beauty products so here are our finds:

Skincare:
thecottagegreenhouse.com This is an 98 percent all natural brand that was part of the The View viewyourdeal.com segment Oprah Magazine Edition. We bought Blood Orange and Grapefruit body lotion, the scent is amazing and it is so moisturizing, there is a Orange and Honey Mask we snagged two, and a Cucumber and Honey Shower Gel, which rinses off so clean without drying.

Body care:
All natural lavender deodorant, we heard so much about the high levels of metals in our deodorant so we gave it a try and I must say it does do wonders. It smells very good and it beats out some of your higher end all natural deodorant products. We bought two at target.com and it 13.00 for two.

Perfume Oils:
This is the next major thing!

We have a floral patchouli from Mave and it was okay, scent di…

Beauty Spot: Clarins Review

So, I tried the full suite of skin care products from clarins.com. and this is what I found to be true about the product.

History:
Clarins was actually founded back in World War I by a French physician who use to treat injured soilders. The formula worked so well that it was used by French women for their beauty needs.


You may need this bit of trivia when you audition for Jeopardy, ya never know.

Back to the product review:

1. Cotton Seed Daily Face Wash:
I use this twice a day night and morning, and what I love about it is that it leaves my face soft without a residue, it is a natural softness and supple feeling that is great.

2.  Face Oil:
I was given a sample of their face oil in Blue Orchid and it was very light, and it healed a dry patch of my skin immediately, with out clogging my pores.

3. Extra- Firming Mask:
This was another sample and I put a little on and waited for 10 min. the results left my skin feeling great again. I did the mask twice a week as instructed and again the results w…

Glam for Less: How to Look and Feel Great for Less

Many on the outside who look at me say wow, she has some big bucks!!

In reality I just know how to bargain hunt really well, with the exception of a few things.

These are my tried and true tips for looking your best and getting the maxium experiences out of life.

1. When updating your wardrobe look for jeans that are on trend but have a BOGO sale, the wide jean and culottes are big this year so newyorkandcompany.com so I got two pairs of jeans for the price of one.

2. Haircare: If you go to your local salon ask when there weekly specials are, same if you go to a local place for waxing needs. Chain hair salons such as dreamdry.com or waxing chains have a point system, so if you are regular ask how many points do you have or need for braiding or an updo, they will give you points even if you buy products.

3. Samples: You heard about a product you really love, but you aren't sure if it will work on skin or perfume is for you, then go to sephora.com and ask for a sample the samples are fre…
