Grapefruit is in prime season right now, so it’s no wonder that this month is National Grapefruit Month! This tart, tangy citrus fruit is actually a hybrid of sweet orange and the lesser-known pomelo, the world’s largest citrus fruit, which is native to South and Southeast Asia. Grapefruit has a long history of being a favorite amongst dieters for its metabolism-revving properties, but that’s just one of the many health benefits that grapefruit has to offer! Whether you enjoy it for breakfast or as a snack, read on to find out 7 amazing benefits of grapefruit.
Lindsey has had a knack for words since speaking her very first “kitty” at the tender age of 5 months old. Since then she’s spelled, written, and rhymed her way through years of schooling until she got to college, where she added headlines, taglines, and CTAs to her writing repertoire as an Advertising major. After graduating, Lindsey worked at a handful of ad agencies crafting clever copy for national and international clients such as Nissan, Mattel, Hasbro, and Disney. She then made the jump to the fabulous world of fashion where she is currently a copywriter for the JustFab brand site. When she’s not writing, you can find Lindsey cooking, blogging, designing, and devouring the latest issues of Vogue and Allure – sometimes all at once.

Fall is in full swing and fabshionistas everywhere are coveting this season’s most dominating trend: military! While the word brings to mind epaulets and buttoned up men in uniform, the look itself is anything but conservative.

From day to play to a night on the town, military glam is having a major moment. Below are a few of my favorite looks. All of these styles and more are available as part of JustFab’s Military collection, so stock your arsenal with these perfect pieces and you’ll be commanding attention all season long.

Whether you’re heading to a hot new club or your BFF’s annual bash, this easy two-week plan will help you look toned and tight by All Hallows’ Eve. So line up your favorite Fabletics outfits and grab a bottle (or three!) of water: this is your plan to get fit for a fab Halloween.
In the height (and heat) of summer there is perhaps no better sweet treat to cool down with than an ice cream sandwich. At once chewy and creamy, there’s a reason why this summer staple is enjoyed by both young and old! However, the store-bought kind can contain some not-so-healthy ingredients. So, in honor of National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, I’ve created a homemade version of this seasonal indulgence that’s as delicious as it is nutritious – no ice cream maker needed! Made with cashews and bananas and sweetened only with fruit and a bit of maple syrup, this recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
