Have a Fab Day

2013 March 20
by Katie

Fab invited me to share some of my favorite picks from their daily marketplace.  Oh you want me to online window shop?  In a place full of quirky and colorful designer goods?  And you want me to smile while discovering your fabulous goods?  Well, let me think about it for a secondYES!  That’s pretty much how it happened. 

Seriously though…I spent a solid hour looking at 1% of their site and found some of the most fun and modern and well, fab stuff.  I know now where they got their name.  Here’s what I found…

1. Golden Gate Bridge Kit - My dad has a slight obsession with bridges so naturally I am drawn to this.  This one would look ah-mazing in a little boys room or an office…the only question would be…how to keep Will from attempting to drive his cars over it?!

2.  Turquoise Beach Towel – Have you seen these towels?  They are lightweight and super obsorbent and dry in like two bats of a cats lashes.  I need one of these beach ones in my life because they would be a lot more flattering wrapped around my buttox than one of those bulky alternatives. 

3.  Guard Dog Coin Bank - In case you don’t know, I attended the University of Georgia and their mascot is a very fierce bulldog named Uga.  So of course, I would be interested in a little white doggie coin bank.  It would be perfect for saving my pennies as a college fund for when my boys want to get their degrees in pre-med :)  

4.  First Aid Box – I’m obsessed with putting one of these on the wall in the boy’s bathroom.  How cute and functional!  It’s fun enough to appeal to them and puts the bandages out of reach so Will doesn’t decorate his entire body with Scooby Doo bandaids.

5.  Metal Ampersand – I love this.  That’s all. 

6.  Blue White Woven Basket - Ever since I found this basket, I can’t stop thinking about it.  I think it would be perfect for a newborn shoot (stick a baby in it!), or for in a bathroom stuffed with hand towels or in a shelf for hiding all my random clutter junk. 

7.  Wood Fabric Beach Chair – This is gonna be an outdoor summer for us.  I just know it.  And being outdoors means that this mama is gonna need some portable seating.  This fabric beach chair is just lovely in that fabric…plus, I can fold it up and throw it inside for storage. 

8.  Tattly Temporary Tattoos – Will loves getting tattoos.  Not real ones of course.  We aren’t that redneck.  These Tattly temporary ones would be perfect for the whole fam.  I’m just gonna go ahead and claim the camera one right now.

9.  Orange Flour Sack Towels – Recently I learned that a fun sack towel is hard to come by.  I’m lovin’ the orange designs on these for a fun splash of color in the kitchen.

10.  White Oval Platter – White dishware literally forces me to buy it.  I have no power.  It stalks me, rips out the debit card and purchases itself.  I’m not kidding.  This oval platter is screaming at me as we speak.  I. must. own.


p.s.  This is a sponsored post brought to you by Fab.  I hand picked each of the items above and got to choose what to write.  Those jokes about my bum are mine :)

    Love your picks. Have been a Fab fan for a long time. The ordering process/delivery is great, I must say. That First Aid kit would be great in a garage/workshop area, too, or the basement. Love the red, of course.

    I love it all….literally there is not one thing I don’t like. I want some turkish bath towels like yesterday, have the same white dish disease and that basket makes my heart flutter.

    If only my bank account was as supportive :)

    I really like that first aid kit. We are in the process of putting one together for our car. Seems like every time we take a road trip one of comes down with something. Time to put the Girl Scout in me to work and “be prepared”.

    Ohhh I must have the beach towel! Thanks for sharing!

    Katie, I know this is totally random, but I was trying to find what website you used for Weston’s guessing game (like date of birth, weight, etc.) but I can’t find it in the archives… can you point me in the right direction? I want to use it for our little new person. :)

      It’s called Whatsinmybelly.com! Guessing games are so fun!

    Go Dawgs! I’ve always liked your blog, Katie, but now I know why. You are a fellow bulldawg. My husband and I are representing for the Bulldawg nation (and the SEC) up in Raleigh, NC. We make it our mission to show our friends what football season should look like.

    Bay area girl and I need that Golden Gate Bridge!! No matter how many times I drive over it to visit my friend in Napa, I’m in awe by it’s beauty and have to snap a pic. And it reminds me of how lucky I am to live where I do. Love your picks!

    I’ve got the first aid kit in my cart. Is there a coupon code for your readers?

  12. March 20, 2013

    Yikes…. am I way out of the loop for never hearing of Fab before now? I’m definitely loving what I see…. the name seems spot-on! Thanks for the post.

    I love Fab.com! I accidentally stumbled upon it one day and I now have 3 purchases coming in the mail. I’m usually not a spontaneous shopper but there is some great stuff! Last time, I bought something for my dad, so I rewarded myself with something. Seems fair no? :D

    Love the Golden Gate Bridge!

    The dog bank reminds me of M’s paperweight in the 007 movies… It just needs a union jack painted on it :-)

  16. March 20, 2013

    I just bought the Golden Gate Bridge model…LOVE IT!

    Yowza!!!!! That sites expensive. I signed up to check out the piggy bank….$79!

    • March 20, 2013

      The bank was definitely one of the more pricey items. I think the others were much more affordable!

    I like fab, here is another great site like Fab but everything is locally made in the US. I actually prefer it a bit more because the things are far more unique. Check it out, Katie:

    Love the blog, but THWG!
    Go Tech!

    That is all!

    I LOVE ampersands too. And Fab.com is one of my favorite places to window shop. :)

    I love your picks from fab! I love their site but to just choose a few things is SO hard! Kinda crushing on the orange sack towels… True story: I have a bright orange cast iron sink that I hated but now I’m kinda attached to it. It’s so crazy but I am trying hard to make it work and with the fun color trends lately- it’s working actually!

  23. March 20, 2013

    That lion bank is too cute. I also love the first aid box – fun AND practical. Thanks for sharing. And I don’t at all mind your sponsored posts. Go get ‘um!

    Go Dawgs!

    I just ordered my second batch of Kombucha from Fab. It was from Mombucha and it’s awesome!!! Loooove me some Kombucha!!

  26. March 22, 2013

    I love your round up! I’m lobbying the hubby for a set of those fast-drying T towels, too.

    And because I’m also a Georgia grad (and current student)… Go Dawgs!!
