A pounding headache, bloating, fatigue, and cramps-- it's that time of the month--and you have not one tampon, or pad. Ugh!! I can't recall how many times this has been the case. In pain and miserable, yet still having to trek to the nearest store, hunting for feminine products, a heating pad and anything else to help me get through the worst week of every month.
Fortunately the tide has turned. No, there's no magical curing of PMS, but thanks to subscription services such as www.mypmskits.com, surviving your period, has become so much easier.
Created for women by a woman, "My PMS Kit" is a monthly subscription box providing the necessary hygiene products, and carefully curated wellness products, allowing you to take a moment and make yourself a priority. Each month ahead of your menstrual cycle(you select date), you will receive a customized box of the following products;

2. An adorable pouch for your feminine products

I don't think this box could possibly get any cuter. I don't give 4 halo's easily, but "My PMS Kit" has earned their wings and some. A banner week so far. I like the idea of being able to select the hygiene products I want and the option to change them later without additional charges. Being that this i the first box of this kind that I've tried, I have nothing to compare it to, but the inclusion of essential oils and beauty products for that little touch of glamour, make this box really special in my opinion.
The cost of this monthly subscription is $30 per month. You will receive your choice of type and quantity of pads, tampons or menstrual cup. Also included will be a carrying pouch, wellness product, 1 food item(of choice) and 3 beauty items. There honestly isn't anything I disliked or could complain about. Every item you need to survive your menstrual cycle without any late night product runs( too cold for that), arrive at your door just in the nick of time. January box easily earns 😇😇😇😇

TGIF!! What a week it has been, but we made it!! Today's review is of a subscription box, courtesy of our friends at Fetch For Pets (www.fetch4pets.com) and their new subscription based service-Fetch Box.
Fetch For Pets as a company has been a leader in the pet care industry for eleven years. Veteran's of the licensing market, their ingenuity to bring CPG's ( Consumer Packaged Goods) i.e. brand names we know and trust, to the pet care industry was a winner. To make things even more pur-fect, Fetch for Pets now offers their very own monthly subscription service, carefully curated with high quality, well known brands that you already use. Once I read that little known fact, it was easy to see what separates Fetch for Pets from the rest of the pack. Giving consumers the choice to use some of the same product brands on their fur-baby's as they use in their own day to day was in a word--Genius!!
Enough rambling, let's get into the January Fetch Box. The box arrives as pictured in a teal colored box. A nice, clean design in a bright teal blue, adorned with adorable white paw prints. Super cute!!
Opening the box reveals a darker blue flap, asking that you snap a photo of your fur-baby checking out the goods and where to find them on social media. I like the effort in putting pertinent information right in front of you( literally) so there's no question or confusion as to who you just purchased from, and where to follow them. Completely self explanatory.
The contents are neatly packed and wrapped in the sweetest pup printed paper, held in place with a Fetch Box seal. Trust me that you may have to move away from your pooch when un-boxing. My little diva dog, pried the food item away from me before I finished opening. That was a very exhausting tug of war.
Inside of January's Box are the following 5 items( pics om gallery below)
1. Burt's Bees Multipurpose Hypoallergenic Wipes(50 count)
2. Arm & Hammer Dry Shampoo
3. Martha Stewart Paw & Nose lotion
4. Arm & Hammer Tartar control dental chews(20 count)
5. Durkha puppy puffs( she LOVED this treat)
*All five products are full sized, no sample or trial sizes.*
Fetch Box ships worldwide from the U.S., and shipping is free. Each month you will receive 5 full sized carefully selected items for $20. Boxes are shipped the 20th of each month, and you can cancel whenever you choose.
Overall Fetch Box truly surpassed my expectations. I was very impressed by the product selection, particularly the brands of products selected. It doesn't take a mathematician to see how much you save when you subscribe vs. purchasing each item separately. Pup approved and paw print sealed, Fetch Box easily earns halo's. 😇😇😇😇 Til next time. Angel ;o
Lush, decadent,opulent....heaven in a bottle. Thymes is like a long lost friend to me when it comes to bath products. Every now and then we all need to take a break and test what's new and improved in the market place, but after a consumer from product separation, I found myself looking for Thymes fragrance.
I shouldn't say looking, they didn't actually go anywhere, but I wanted to revisit the brand, and I did just that while shopping with Ulta. Over the holidays there were quite a few offers of freebies, kits and add-on products and one of my add on was the Gardenia and Goldleaf foaming bath soak.
I don't care how over saturated the market becomes, the Thymes brand is tried, tested and true--forever one of my faves. So last week I mentioned that something this glorious required meditation & a deep soak. A long hot bath, candles, a little Michael Buble' in the background--and a sachet of Gardenia and Goldleaf in the bath. Trust me when I tell you, all the worries and chaos of the week melted away in an instant.
Unlike some bath soaks, this foaming bath is is not only beautifully scented and perfectly packaged, it is choc full of healing ingredients as well. Having Auto Immune disorder, I often seek products that offer comfort to achy & sore muscles and joints. The Gardenia & Goldleaf is infused with Epsom Salt for healing, Aloe and Glycerin to soften the skin, topped off with the sweet medley of Jasmine & Chinese magnolia flower t tickle your senses. In a word--encapsulating. Thymes, you have earned your halo--all four of them
I wasn't aware of the extent of this amazing collection of products, but I certainly look forward to trying each and every one. Find this product's collection and so many more by clicking here www.thymes.com
Don't we all want long, voluminous lashes? Of course we do. There's no shortage of false lashes, lash extensions and a mascara for every need to prove that fact--and I'm no different. I'm rather new to the Benefit brand, and recently I received this tube of mascara in my Ulta goody bag.
I just may have more mascara than any one girl needs, dare I say, and I'm always up to try something new. Benefit cosmetics always have great packaging, so the shiny chrome, bullet shaped tube gets 2 angel wings all on it's on. Now, as for the product itself--Benefit claims the following results based on respondent usage;
*Enhanced length & volume --Clearly
*Base to tip curl-Yes ma'am
*Visible lift--Flirta-licious( new word)
I am absolutely SMITTEN with the results. I am open and unbiased when reviewing new products, so I had zero expectations when trying this mascara. I am truly surprised with the results, certainly given that I only had to apply one coat. I'm especially pleased that there was no clumping in applying or as the day wore on. Benefit definitely gets you bombshell beautiful, but they already know that. If you'd like to try this mascara( worth every dime) log on to www.benefitcosmetics.com today!!
Mario Badescu is a name brand that is synonymous with excellence--at least in my opinion. Family owned and in business for more than 50 years, I've been a customer off and on for about 15. My skin is rather oily and a sensitive, and at present, a bit dull. Winter weather combined with auto immune disorder have done me no favors whatsoever--not to mention that as we age, our skin cells simply don;t turn over the way they did in our teenage years.
In need of a great exfoliate that would help rejuvenate my skin, that wouldn't irritate my skin was quite the task until I stumbled across the Brightening Kit by Mario Badescu. Kit itself contains the following four products;
1) Foaming Glycolic Cleanser (2oz)
2)Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion(2oz)
3) Vitamin C Serum (0.3 oz)
4) Whitening Mask (0.5 oz)
Starting with the cleanser, I was hesitant but pleasantly surprised. Unlike a pure Glycolic acid, this cleanser has an almost gel like consistency. Foaming with just a bit if warm water, it exfoliates yet is very, very gentle. The mild citrus scent-is refreshing--a nice little pick me up, but it's the addition of the herbal extracts of chamomile, yarrow and sage that balance the acid, and keeps it from causing skin irritation. Giving my skin a coupe of minutes between product, I followed up with Step 2-the Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing lotion, which is actually a toner.
I'll admit I had some reservations about how the grapefruit complex would react after the Glycolic Acid, but minus an ever so slight tingle, I experienced no redness, no burning or breakout.( thank goodness!)
Next in line would be the serum, but I opted instead to try the Whitening mask in it's place. The mask is a rich creamy consistency, but glides on smooth as silk. packed with Vitamin E, Licorice root Mulberry & Grape seed oil, the scent is soft, with a hint of sweetness. If you could combine an English garden with the ocean, I think this is what it would smell like. Absolutely beautiful.
You only need to allow this to sit for about 5 minutes or so, and then rinse with warm water. I followed with the Serum as my final step. After one use, I can't speak to visible changes yet, but the texture of my skin felt so much more smooth and pampered beyond belief after my very first use. I am so very excited to continue with this kit, in hopes of reversing some of the damage Old Man Winter has done.
