What’s in your FAB BAG ??

Fab Bag – June 2014

I am one of the few who started the FAB BAG (know as Velvette) subscription from the very first box and was fairly impressed with the products & contents of the box being sent every month. However with time the content & quality of the box fell (in my opinion) resulting in me not renewing my subscription. In last couple of  months a few my friends told me about the new FAB BAG (actually a bag  this time) and they could not stop raving about the quality & the content of the bag, which made me so inquisitive that I went ahead and subscribed for 3 month. I resubscribed in June 2014 and received my first bag  starting of July 2014 and let me say I was not disappointed.
