Escape Monthly Review December 2013 Italy – Vacation Subscription Box

Escape Monthly is one of the boxes I look forward to the most! Each month, they send a vacation in a box with a new destination theme. These boxes include books, food, beauty products, etc from the destination they are featuring. The variety in the box is what I love the most. This month the destination was Italy – their first international box! Each box comes with a travel pamphlet with details about the products and fun facts about the destination. Additionally, one lucky winner each month will win a vacation to that destination!

The initial view of the box had me excited!! I wanted to dive right into everything!

Skin & Co Roma Truffle Body Gel ($11) and Roma Truffle Body Milk ($11)
Both of these products smell delicious! My hands feel soft and smell great! I will not be gifting these to someone else! Also included was a code for $19 off your order at Skin & Co!!

Living Abroad in Italy ($19.95) and Province of Terni guide book
Each month Escape Monthly includes a travel book for the destination. I love this! I would never buy a travel book unless I was visiting, so this gives me the opportunity to learn about places I might never visit.

Isiciliami Passione Pasticcera ($9)

I am really looking forward to trying these cookies!

Olio and Olive Castelvetrano Olives ($9)

These look sooooo good! I will save these for a special occasion to pair with cheese and wine.

La Civetta Extra Virgin Olive Oil ($2.50)

I am not much of a cook, but I am sure this will beat the store brand olive oil I currently use!!

Fabletics Review December 2013 – Fitness Subscription Box

My Fabletics outfit for December arrived yesterday, and I think it’s my favorite one yet!  Fabletics  is a monthly active wear subscription, and was co-founded by Kate Hudson. Outfits start at $49.95, and you can easily skip a month if nothing strikes your fancy. This is my third month subbing, and I can attest to the superior quality and no hassle returns. For whatever reason, cool workout gear makes me want to go use my treadmill, so I guess that’s money well spent, right?


This month I chose the 3 piece “Activate” outfit which included the Oula tank, Asaro legging, and Vaasa sports bra. $50 for 3 pieces of workout gear?!?! Yes, please! J Fabletics is also offering a promo for 50% off your first outfit, so you could score this for as little as $25 shipped! In addition, they have a great rewards program, which enables you to accrue points toward free outfits. You can earn points from both purchases and by reviewing products.

Fabletics bottoms feature compression fabrics, non-chaffing stitching, and a cute hidden pocket. The Asaro leggings are perfect for both working out, and they also look great tucked in my snow boots paired with a tunic!

I wasn’t sure about the color combo I chose, but I was feeling adventurous and I really do love it! I chose the Vaasa bra in “Citron” and the Oula tank in “Fiery Red”. These two pieces look great paired together – the cross back straps on the bra peek out of the racerback tank – totally practical, but fashion forward. I’m excited to see what Fabletics  has in store next month! I’m hoping for a cute jacket or tunic! What outfit did you choose this month?
