Check out these photos [taken by the amazing Vanessa Boy] of me opening up my fall box for a sneak peek at some of the awesome items + if you scroll to the bottom of the post there just mighttttt be a special discount code you can use to get $10 off your box 😉

To be perfectly honest, I’ve tried lots of subscription services before & have always ended up being underwhelmed. I felt like I was always getting a bunch of small, kind of useless items that I didn’t actually need & I felt silly paying for sample sized items/random knick knacks. With the FabFitFun box, I was pleasantly surprised…everything in the box was something I could ACTUALLY use! As soon as I saw the super cute pink mini umbrella, I literally gasped & said “oh my gosh I’ve been NEEDING an umbrella for my car [to endure the daily Florida storms], but I always forget to buy one!”

Then, my excitement MULTIPLIED when the next item I saw was a PORTABLE IPHONE CHARGER. It doesn’t get more useful than that & again, it’s an item I’ve been thinking to myself that I need, but I always forget to actually purchase it when I’m at a store.

There were also some awesome beauty products in the box, like a large sized lipgloss/primer, a moisturizer and my favorite one – a pack of 2 luxury gold face masks [which I immediately tried that same night].

Overall, I was very pleased with my box & I can’t wait to get my next one in December 🙂 If you’d like to sign up – you can use the discount code “cupcakekristie” to get $10 off!!! Hurry & go now so you can get your hands on the limited amounts of the Fall box available!

Making Sweating Chic: Sweaty Betty

Everyone knows how much I LOVE my bright, obnoxious, neon workout apparel & usually, I buy all Nike products…but recently, I got hooked on a new brand called Sweaty Betty! [The brand itself isn’t new, it’s UK based & has been worn by female athletes around the world since 1998.]

During my recent road-trip out west, I knew I would be wearing mostly active apparel – so I packed a ton of leggings, sports bras, t-shirts, etc [quite the change from my usual wardrobe]. My most comfortable [& cutest] outfits ended up all being from Sweaty Betty...both Stephanie & I wore pieces from SB everyday of the trip. I got a ton of comments/messages asking where my various leggings were from when I posted photos from my trip on Instagram – so here are the exact items I was wearing for you to shop!

PS: When I say these leggings are the MOST comfortable I’ve EVER worn, I promise I’m not exaggerating – PLUS some of the styles are reversible, which was an awesome feature to have when traveling! 🙂

How To: Be An Obnoxious Workout Barbie

IMG_1238 IMG_0352


I wish I could say that I LOVE working out and that I get so HIGH off endorphins that I wake up every morning *full of motivation* to get myself to the gym but…that’s not the case…at all. Of course, I never regret going to the gym & once the torture of the actual workout is over, I DO feel great. But in order to get myself to the point of *actually* walking into the gym, I have to motivate myself by dressing in the cutest, brightest, most coordinated work out wear.

I’ll admit, I’m kinddddd of a Nike snob – but it’s only because I really do LOVE all of their stuff, AND because I’m an OCD psycho about everything matching perfectly, so it’s just easier to buy all one brand because the shades of colors are always the same & mixing/matching is a breeze.

It all starts with the shoes. I’m a huge fan of the Nike Free model, they’re so light & comfortable (& always available in cute colors). Sidenote: I’m BY NO MEANS a runner and I wear my shoes when working out indoors 85% of the time.

My favorite type of bottoms to wear when working out are either spandex shorts or leggings, just because it’s the most comfortable/breathable option. Right now it’s summer time in Florida, which means I’m definitely wearing shorts – the Nike Pro style are by far my favorites!nikespandex
