If you’re a girl, you’r totally going to get this post. Guys, you may wanna skip to something else. Unless of course your in tune to your lady’s “sensative times” like my hubs and want to shower her with something that will make her feel less blah when that dreaded time of the month rears it’s ugly head. My man knows it like clockwork. Do you think it’s because every month around the same time my head does that spinning thing like the girl in The Exercist?
And, also – is it weird that it’s still difficult for me to say “Period”? I know I’m a grown up and I’m supposed to be all proud, and avoid phrases like “crimson wave” because I am Woman, hear me roar! But it still feels strange coming out of my mouth.
While I’m totes a fierce lady, saying that word takes me right back to the time my Mom came over to my best friends house while we were watching TV after school and announced we needed to go home to talk about “Ladies Things”. Oh, sweet childhood mortification. OMG. And, also totally hilarious now, because I don’t think my Mom remembers that day at all and I remember it like it was yesterday.
Having a three year old daughter, we talk about Vaginas on the daily, so in a couple of years when that convo comes up, I’m going to be a rock star at using the proper terminology (and not doing so in front of her besites – ha-ha! Sorry Mom!).
Hopefully, when that time comes around for her, there will still be cool little subscription boxes designed specifically to pamper her through the bloating and headspinning.

This box has been featured in a ton of magazines and I can see why. It came filled with stuff to take the frustration out of your period and put the happy back in. Remember the head spinning I mentioned earlier? Yeah, I could use a box of happy once a month – I wonder if they make “care packages” for your family to help them cope with the hysterical sobbing and ravenous eating.
I had the opportunity to review the May Box, which was themed as a “Fruity Celebration”: Enjoy the Ultimate in Pampering with a Fruit Inspired Twist. Fun!
Each box comes with the stuff you need the most when your lady bits rolls in: Pads, Tampons and / or liners. My box came with these Tampax Tampons and tampons are a priority when it comes to “being prepared”.
The “Gift” in the box was a Beach Comb Scents Large Candle (Retail $12.99) which smelled INCREDIBLE. I haven’t burned it yet, but it smells peachy and beachy and perfect for the heat wave we’re about to have this week!
I also got a Scrub Me The Right Way Lip Scrub (Retail $9.99). I have to say, I don’t do it often, but lip scrubs are pretty much the best thing ever. It doesn’t feel like you should use a scrub on your lips, but it’s really quite awesome, so give it a try if you haven’t! And, legit it smelled good enough to eat.
And, was able to follow up the scrub with Bonjour Jolie’s own Mint Vegan Lip Balm (Retail: $3.99). Also smells delish and feels great and lip balmy.
I get where they were going with the fruity thing this month and they nailed it. Everything that wasn’t edible, smelled fruity enough to eat and all of the edible stuff (I’m getting to that next, ladies) was also fruit inspired!
I love these Freeze-Dried Fruit Crisps by Brothers All Natural. Just not the banana variety, which I received. So, I’m saving them as an on-the-go snack for my sweet pea!
How adorable is that they put the majority of the snacky stuff in this little blue bag? SO CUTE! I love food presents! While I vowed to save these for when the time is right (wink-wink), I’m eating the Welchs Fruit Snacks as we speak and they’re taking me right back to those days I’d come home from school and eat like 10 of these snack bags and still be 0.0 pounds.
The rest of the Edibles included were a Nutrigrain Fruit Bar, Orchard Valey Dark Chocolate covered Blueberries, a Bananko Chocolate Covered Banana, a bunch of True Cirus Drink Packets, and a Haribo Berry Bucket. And, those I am saving to eat (and drink).
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST?
The monthly subscription box will run you $16 bucks per month (plus $6.50 shipping in the US, $14 for Canada and $20 Worldwide). You can also try one box if you’d like, for $20 (plus the shipping rates I just noted).
And, don’t forget to Enter KIDDO here to get 15% of. Expires 6/15/17. There’s nothing beter than a seet lil’ discount!
All in all, such a well thought and fun box to receive. I’m off to say the “P” word over and over and over again until I can say it without reliving embarresments of my youth. Au Revoir!
