Fab - ulous Tips

Hey Everyone!
Yes I know I deserve some spanking for having such a long haitus, and will turn around for it as soon as I finish typing this, I promise [fingers crossed at my back].

Its about Fab.com, and their instant success since starting 130 days ago [yes you read right!].

Please take the time to read through - its just 21 points after all :)
