FabFitFun Review

Sadly about a month ago I ended my relationship with BirchBox. Not because I did not love it but because I felt it was no longer good for me.  I needed to make a clean break from all the hassle that comes along with samples (not enough room in my medicine cabinet), plus, I admit, I had found something new, something better.
