Eleanor has babies!  You might remember Eleanor from when she was a baby!  She modeled in Kloverboxes.  She's all grown up now and has two beautiful babies of her own.  I've included her Kloverbox pictures below so you can see how much she has grown.  Aren't her babies the cutest?

FabFitFun is a quarterly lifestyle box.  It's similar to PopSugar, but it costs a little bit more and the value tends to be a higher -- FabFitFun boxes are worth $200+.  Subscribers receive a mix of products such as accessories, jewelry, home goods, beauty products, plus a fitness product.  I'm not exactly a fitness buff, so I didn't think this box would be for me when I first heard about it.  The fitness component tends to be minor -- a jump rope in the first box I got from FabFitFun, socks in this box -- so I don't mind it.  Because it's one of the more expensive boxes and they release spoilers for each box, I cancel and then resubscribe if I happen to want the next box.  I skipped the summer box because I had no interest in it.  All subscribers get the same products, but there are often variations such as color and scent.  People who have annual subscriptions to FabFitFun get to choose their variations and everyone else gets surprises.  

The link at the top of the page is my referral link.  Each FabFitFun customer has one and it gets you a discount on the next box if people subscribe using the link.  If you don't want to use that link, here's the regular link to the FabFitFun website.

As you might remember, I already reviewed the FabFitFun Fall 2016 box here.  I liked that box so much that I bought a second one in hopes of getting variations on some of the products, so I thought I'd share with you what I got in my second box.  I won't be doing a full review here, but I've posted pictures of everything again and I'll tell you about the variations.  Currently, the Fall 2016 box is sold out.  FabFitFun offered a welcome box for those who subscribed after the fall box sold out, but they have sold out of the welcome box, too.  If you subscribe now, you'll have to wait for the Winter 2016 box, which will come out in December.  Current subscribers are able to purchase Fall 2016 boxes for $59.95 or Welcome Box 2 for $49..95 in the members only shop, but they don't have many left, so act quickly if you want an extra box.  

Here's what I got in my second FabFitFun Fall 2016 box:

This box was worth $240.38, which is $3 less than the other box I got.  The fuchsia ToeSox go for $3 less than the Black Fishnet ToeSox for some reason, so that's why there is a difference in the value.  Four of the products in the fall box -- the scarf, the ToeSox, the coloring book, and the mug -- had variations.  I got the same mug in both boxes, but I got different variations of the other three products.

The ModCloth Loch and Key Blanket Scarf was the product I most wanted.  I loved the tan plaid scarf I got in the last box, so I was hoping to get a different color scarf in this box.  Besides the tan and red plaid scarf, they also had a navy and green scarf, a brown and black scarf, and a black and white scarf.  As you can see, I got the black and white plaid this time  When I first saw the scarves advertised, I didn't want the black and white scarf at all, but, now that I have it, I really like it.  I wanted the brown and black scarf the most, but I'm happy with the two scarves I got.  The scarves are huge, soft, and warm.  I've gotten so many compliments on them.  The only thing that worries me about the white is that the wind could blow the scarf into my face and I could get my lip tar on the scarf and ruin it.  I generally try to avoid white clothing because I always stain it. I'll try to be careful with this, though.

I can't use these ToeSox as I have a nerve condition affecting one of my feet and toe-separating socks are too painful for me to wear.  I have a couple of friends who would like these socks, though, so I will use them as gifts.  I got the black fishnet color last time and a bright, pretty fuchsia this time.  I like the fuchsia more.  These are supposed to be used for yoga and other barefoot exercises.

FabFitFun made its own coloring books and colored pencils for the box.  Subscribers received either the Things Coloring Book, which I got in my first box, or the Nature Coloring Book, which I got in this box.  The pages are made of good, thick paper and are removable.  I like that each picture was designed by a different artist.  Some of the pictures are very detailed and would take forever to color, while others are somewhat simple and are good for when you just want to color something quickly.  The Things Coloring Book has a little bit of everything to color, while the Nature book has mostly flowers.  I like them equally, so I'm glad to have gotten one of each..  The pencils aren't of very high quality, so I'll be giving them away to kids.

Subscribers received a The Created Co. tumbler with either Good Morning Gorgeous or Joy Comes in the Morning printed on it.  Both of the mugs I got were Good Morning Gorgeous, which I was okay with because I thought Joy Comes in the Morning was a little weird.  That said, I'll be giving both away to friends as I don't think I'll get much use out of these.  I'm not a coffee drinker.  If you have one of these, note that it is not dishwasher safe.  I've seen people posting that the lettering is coming off even when handwashing the mug, so be careful.

The other products in the box did not have variations.  I've posted the pictures of them below, but, since I already reviewed them, I won't review them again.  You can check out the original FabFitFun Fall 2016 review if you're interested in learning more about the following products.

I'm as happy with this second box as I was the first box!  I loved most of the products, most especially the scarf.  The products that I can't use will make great holiday gifts, so I'm okay with having duplicates.

Did anyone else get a FabFitFun Fall 2016 box?  What color scarf did you get?  I'd love to hear about your FFF box in the comments!
