  1. I’m so glad I cancelled! These spoilers don’t do anything for me.

  2. As an aspiring wannabe ballerina, I need the “meet me at the barre” bag. Not sure its worth resubscribing. If I do so, it’ll have to be the annual so I can actually select the bag I want.

    • Hi – If you’d like to pay for shipping, I would be willing to select and send you the bag – I am up to my ears in bags 🙂 Shoot me an email – kwisbey4 @ gmail .com

  3. I really really wish this was a baggu duffle instead…a nice plain canvas bag in a pretty color that we can leave blank or add some flair as we choose. Baggu are lower RV but much more desirable IMHO.

    • TOTALLY agree, I love baggu and the quality is amazing, I was hoping for a duck bag for fall

  4. Beyond meh. I agree that the add-ons are so far the most exciting thing about the fall box. I probably won’t be renewing my annual sub. Fortunately I’ve got someone to gift the gym bag to, because otherwise it would just sit in my closet collecting dust.

  5. I’m totally underwhelmed. I don’t think that any of my “gym rat” friends would carry this bag with any of the sayings, otherwise I’d gift it to one of them. This is just TOO cutesy!

  6. So my thoughts on the two spoilers: The wrap will be brought to my office. The building gets chilly and this will be perfect to have on hand. I’m not wild about the phrases on the gym bag, so I’m planning on covering the phrase with fabric. Maybe I’ll use a couple of different denim fabrics to make it interesting. I’ll have to see the bag in person, though..

    • Great idea about the fabric. Maybe even creating a large pocket over the phrase would work?

    • That is a great idea! I really like the bag but I’m 45 and would feel silly walking around with it. And my ten year old would roll her eyes too, otherwise I’d pass it to her. But I really do like the denim.

  7. Oh no … I just purchased an annual, may I put it on hold for a season?? A cheesy gym bag with sayings on it – Uh, reminds me of something my middle school students would carry and shove in their locker. Why couldn’t one of the choices be “No Phrase,” or have it be the choice for Fitness?

    • Exactly!

    • I would also prefer a plain bag over these awful phrases that I’d be embarrassed to carry. I’ll be swapping this if anyone wants it.

      • I agree…I’m chubby and going to the gym is intimidating enough. Walking in with a bag that says will workout for cupcakes would be awful. Good gawd. Might as well walk in there eating a big mac and drinking a chocolate shake whilst on the treadmill. I’m already self conscience enough!! The gym and juice isn’t so bad but I never get what i hope for!!

        • ^ This.

    • References to steroids, alcohol, or illiteracy…

      • LMAO!

    • Agreed!

  8. I canceled after summer and so far the only thing I miss is shopping add ons. The blanket is okay, but this is not for me!

  9. Sigh… the gym bag with sayings is the kind of item that kept me from subscribing to FFF. At least the wrap seems like something I can use and I’m sure there will be more things in the box but ENOUGH of the cutesy sayings!

    • Me too!! I was always very interested in FFF but these items with cheesy sayings keep me on the fence. I know these are trendy right now but this is so specific. And how many subscribers are actually into barre. Maybe we can get a collection of them together for an underprivileged dance school?

      • I’m a new subscriber. Can you pick which saying you’d like ,or is it totally random? I love the one that says ” Will work out for cupcakes”. . Its JUST as smart @$$ as i am. Lol

        • If an annual subscriber you can pick which bag and numerous other items starting today.

  10. I usually like Fab Fit Fun seasonal boxes, but will sit this season out. I will likely pick up the Box of Style instead.

  11. Oh man this looks horrible. I’m not 13 so I have no interest in that kind of bag and I believe most of the subscribers are the same. I’m really on the fence about canceling this subscription. I really like the add ons I chose but not seeing the $50 value in the spoilers 🙁

  12. I can say I’m not a fan of any of them. If they’re going to put in a gym bag, I wish it could have been something that seems more sturdy, for an example would be one similar to Nike or Adidas type gym bag, then allowed us to pick what color we got.

    It seems like a decent portion of their customer base has expressed, either on forums or (hopefully) to customer service about the items with writing on them being a pretty big let down. I hope one day their customer service will listen.

  13. I can buy whatever I need from any box on eBay. A much more pleasant experience.

  14. Excited for the scarf, but really disappointed with bag. WHY, WHY WHY, companies thing if they put cheesy writing the consumer would like it. I don’t like So Susan bags for this reason, I did not like like Ipsy bag for same reason. I am 40 years old and I like something classy, slick, simple and conservative no cheesy revolting phrases. And yes, bag looks pretty cheap.

    • You may like Box of Style better. I have been getting both and am 38 and prefer the Box of Style.

  15. The first thing I thought when I saw the bag was, “denim…wtf?!?” Then I saw the misuse of the word “workout” as a verb. Those two things coupled with the great gym bag in Happy Rebel, and this spoiler is a total miss for me. I’m reserving judgment on the wrap until I see it.

    • Hah, that “workout” made me cringe, too. I’m an editor and proofreader by profession, so naturally that will be the bag I end up getting.

    • I was wondering if I was the only grammar nerd that was bothered by that!! Lol. It’s actually the cutest saying of the three, IMO, but I just can’t . . .

      How many board rooms full of MBAs saw that and approved it?? And what about FFF? No one noticed? Or maybe they just got a really good deal because of the error. smh

  16. Ew 😝

  17. Well, since you asked, I do not want any of those bags.

    I had really hoped FFF would get over this “cutesy writing on stuff” since it seems like a large chunk of us must be giving them feedback that we don’t like it every time. As others have suggested, a text-free version of this would have been really nice. And it’s not like it would be more difficult to produce!

    Beyond the taste level of the sayings themselves, the poor editing of the text & the grammar error are frustrating to find in a box that I know FFF spends MONTHS curating. It makes the company look careless.

  18. Don’t like the denim as a gym bag, I’ll be swapping this.

  19. I only wanted one item from the summer box – the salt kit. I got the massage oil instead. Yesterday I have received my salt kit I had bought on eBay. Couldn’t be happier.

    I guess I’ll do just the same this time around – wait to see what I want and head straight to eBay. I’ll save a ton of money on the way.

  20. Sorry FabFitFun we had to break-up today. Not into those spoilers either but maybe we’ll get back together soon. 😊🤞

  21. Meet me at the Barre is the phrase for me.

  22. … and my seasonal subscription was canceled. Maybe I’ll re-subscribe for this box once I see the full spoilers, but these 2 items are disappointments for me. I hate the stuff with the kitschy phrases. It just makes the item seems cheap and juvenile to me. The big, bulky scarf does nothing for me either. I loved the concept of the big scarf last year, but no matter how I styled it, I could get that look to work for me. At this point the $100 I would have spent on the box and add-ons will be put toward a little shopping spree for some nice accessories of my own choosing.

    • The whole box is as bad as this spoiler :(.

  23. I wanted a gym bag, so I am happy with this spoiler. I am currently into Zumba classes, which are pretty hip-hop heavy, so I especially appreciate the Snoop dog reference–Gym & Juice. Hehe… makes me chuckle! It doesn’t seem like the best quality bag, or what I would spend $60 on, but… my cost for the bag is surely to be like $10 or something, and maybe it will make a few folks at the gym chuckle too.
    The scarf– ugh. I agree with others who said it would have been much better as a slightly larger blanket. I may swap or gift.

  24. I’m counting on beauty items saving this box. I have very long hair so I always enjoy full size products for hair or face. I don’t plan to keep either of the spoilers, but I know a couple of girls who love cupcakes so I’ll pick that phrase. I can add a cupcake patch, pin, luggage tag for more color. Keeping in mind that the spoilers are items with variations (since choices open soon) I am optimistic that I will still find plenty to love about this box!

  25. I didn’t renew after my annual. My experience has been that I get overly excited about the spoilers, then all the add ons. I spend a boat load on add-ons which I still haven’t used most of the ones I bought the past 2 boxes.

    I get super excited to receive my box, upon unboxing, I am elated for 1 day. I have all these cute new things, but that’s just it. I have many, many, many things. I haven’t used any of the items I received in the last box except for the SPF but I still have the “things”.

    I am stepping away from this for now but please don’t judge if you see me comment about how much I love my new FFF box. Sometimes, I am weak! 🙂

    • Omg your so cute! You said it perfectly! So funny.. And you made my day so thank you. Lol

  26. love love LOVE the spoilers. Win for me so far

    • Aww see, me too! No one else seems to be to crazy about them, but after the disappointment of the summer box, I actually like the scarf and the bag… the phrases on the bag, meh, but I will use it regardless! One thing I really loved was the Roundie from the spring box… I use it all the time.

  27. I had to say goodbye for Fall, so far, nothing appealing to me. The sayings on the bags are just not cute to me.

    • I agree! I canceled and was nervous about it but I don’t need the scarf and saying are just so corny.

  28. Glad I cancelled. Neither of these spoilers are my thing.

    • I agree. Not going to renew my annual sub yet. Hopefully winter will be more my style.

      • Ditto.

  29. I have no use for either item but with the money I am saving with the add-ons (which are gifts or items I use when I can get them at reduced prices) I cannot justify canceling. Don’t think I would have much luck in swaps, might have to try to sell.

  30. This might be the first time ever that the first two spoilers are both misses for me. While I’m not super excited about the scarf, I know someone who I can gift it to who will love it. But this bag will probably just be donated. I think the cupcakes saying is cute, but why is it denim?? Is that a popular thing right now? Hoping the rest of the box fits me better.

  31. Liz (or anyone else who knows): is the writing on one side or both sides of the bag?

    • Just one side! Hope that helps!

      • Thanks so much, Liz!

  32. Like the wrap. Can use it at work or on the couch.. The bag is a no. Those sayings are so cheesy. Don’t even think my teenage niece would carry it. Hopefully the rest is useful.

  33. On the fence about cancelling. I didn’t really like the first 2 spoilers 🙁

  34. Hi Liz I was wondering if you could please tell me the Color name of the 1st blanket photo? Also did you happen to wash yours yet hun to see if it sheds after you wash it? Thank you very much. 🙂

  35. I really wish the bag didn’t say anything on it. It’s cute and useful. I’m just not into the phrases on bags trend.
    I’m torn on the wrap. It really looks more like a throw to me and that’s probably what I’ll use it for. I just wish it was wider for that purpose. I hope the rest of the box has personal value for me or at least some really great Christmas gifts that I can set aside.
    I’m excited about my add-ons though!

    • I agree. I wish they would give the option of having no phrases on their items. I would have been much more excited about this if I had that choice. I wonder if I could find an iron on that I like better…

      As it is, the only phrase I would be remotely excited about is the cupcake one, but I’m pretty sure the grammar on it is incorrect (“workout” is a noun, “work out” is a verb) and it’s starting to make my eye twitch.

      • Well great, now you’ve ruined it for me! Hahaha. I was only considering the cupcake one, but now that grammar is going to jump out at me every time! Lol. I’m thinking I’ll just use the bag as an overnight bag and face it inward so no one sees what it says! Lol

        • Sorry about that! Kind of wish I hadn’t noticed it too. (On the other hand, it would be embarrassing to carry around something with poor grammar at my gym, which is where I work.)

          Think I’ll go with “Gym and Juice” because it’s the most discreet and is a 90’s Snoop Dog reference.

      • Twitching hard over here too!

        The cupcakes bag was the only that I was somewhat interested in, but that blatant grammar blunder is killing me. I can’t see myself even using it because of the error.

        When used as one word, “workout” = noun or adjective. As a verb, “work out” should be two words.

        My goodness, didn’t Private Party have somebody, anybody, notice this before they went to print? Doesn’t Popsugar have an editor who would have noticed this before they placed an order?

        Social media and texting has butchered grammar…

        • It’s Fabfitfun not Popsugar

          • Oops. Thanks! Yes…..and it should be “have” not “has” as well. LOL

            I should be armed with more coffee before commenting!

      • Same reaction here. The grammar mistake is very irritating.

        I’m sure a dozen people had to vet this bag, too, by the time it got to the production stage. That’s what makes it extra irritating to me — it’s a super simple problem to fix, but no one bothered to care.

  36. Thank goodness for spoilers…

    Time to cancel the Fall box 🙁

  37. Fall last year was so good and sold out so fast that this year I got summer just so I was guaranteed fall this year but so far I am not intrested at all with these 2 spoilers. The wrap looks silly, too big for a scarf but half the size for a blanket (which I would have perfered.) And a gym bag with stupid puns on it, a simple sleek design would please a lot more people and then I could use it for other things since I don’t go to the gym. I wouldn’t use any of those bags in public because they are so cheezy. Idk. I will wait for one more spoiler but I will probably cancel after unless it is amazing.

  38. I’m not a fan of the bag. Kind of a let down after receiving the beautiful bag in the Happy Rebel box. I will be putting this one in the donation box where I am sure that someone will be thrilled to have it.

  39. Not really my style. Hopefully I can get rid of it on swap. The price is ridiculous! Who would pay $60 for that?

  40. I keep thinking about when an athlete uses steroids they say he’s “juiced” so that’s what comes to mind for that one bag!

    And since I’m pretty much out of shape and need to lose a lot of weight I would be super embarrassed to carry the cupcake one!

    May have to gift the bag away!

    • Yeah, I’m hella chubby so I’m personally not gonna be bringing a cupcakes bag to the gym anytime soon, if ever, hahaha. I dig that Snoop Dog song so I’m gonna go for that and that’s it for me with my annual sub from FFF. I’d personally rather spend more and get something I’d actually use like Box of Style because with the shipping and exchange to Canada it’s over $70 per box and these 2 spoilers just aren’t anything I need or will use. Too bad it wasn’t as good as last fall (in my opinion)

    • Same! I need to lose weight as well and would be embrassed to carry the cupcake one. I don’t even like cupcakes lol I don’t have a sweet tooth. But at the same time I’m torn as I hate working out and don’t like the other sayings.

  41. So torn! On its own, I think Cupcakes is the cutest. But I am a sucker for a good Snoop Dog reference so…
    And it isn’t something I need two of:/

    I’m excited!

  42. Don’t have a use for this…. not excited. but I guess I’ll pick gym and juice. See if I can use for anything else? Or sell or give away

  43. Yikes…will be swapping that bag away. I’m not interested. Hopefully someone else is!

  44. I want none of these.

    • I want none of these, too. Of course, I signed up for the annual subscription.

      • Hey, if either of you get the Gym and Juice bag I’d buy it off you! Kaitlin.M.Schott (at)

  45. What a cute bag! Gym and Juice is mine.

  46. no…i had denim anything (besides my jeans)..not a fan of this at all…

  47. Hi! What are the names of the color options for the wraps?

  48. id. like to see u wear it

  49. Liz, I love the boots you’re wearing!

    • YES! Liz, where are they from?? Honestly, every time you’re in a photo I feel like I need a listing of what you’re wearing 😀

  50. Fun! I like the bag!

    • Same! I want the cupcake one, but don’t know if it’s worth resubscribing.

      • The cupcake one has a mistake. It should be Will Work Out for Cupcakes. Work out is TWO WORDS.

        • Things will work out well if you do your workout regularly. It is correct in the usage as a noun or adjective as one word.
