I have never met a woman who enjoys “that time of the month”. There is nothing to enjoyable about it. You’re bloated, crampy, crabby and you want to eat everything in site.
Here’s a funny (or not so funny depending on how you look at it) story about “that time of the month”.
I was out on Los Angeles on a press trip when I get a text from my teenage daughter announcing that she just got her period for the very first time. She knew what she needed to do but we were unprepared for this “event”. I had nothing in the cabinet to help her. She needed my husband to get her stuff from the store.
My daughter was embarrassed to tell her dad (my hubby) so I had to text him and tell him what was going on. He FREAKED OUT! He didn’t know what to do… he was in a panic… it was quite comical. It’s funny how a grown man can be turned into a quivering mess just by the mere mention of “that time of the month”.
I spend the next hour or so on my phone between texts between my husband and daughter. Meanwhile I was on a press junket and I had things to do. I finally got him to take her to the store and let her pick up her “supplies”.
To this day my husband jokes with me that I am not allowed to leave home because he doesn’t want something like that to happen again. LOL!
When it comes to that “time of the month” there is very little we can to make the experience less horrible. That is until now.
Introducing the TOM Box – Time Of the Month Box!
The TOM Box is a monthly subscription service (you can cancel at any time) that delivers a special box to your door once a month. Each box contains things to make that time of the month a little less miserable.
Inside each box is your choice of pads or tampons (full package), which is a supply we all need during that time. So the TOM Box has it’s practical side. You never want to run out of THOSE supplies. Plus you get to choose the brand and type of product you want.
In addition the TOM Box contains a few pieces of candy, make up and jewelry. Yes, you read that right – candy, make up and jewelry!
TOM Box sent me a box to check out for myself. My box arrived with a package of pads, some small pieces of candy and some really nice make up.
I love the make up. I received a great lip gloss and really nice eye shadow.
I think my favorite thing inside the TOM Box was the gorgeous silver bracelet. I LOVE the bracelet! Even my teenage daughter wants the bracelet.
I’m sorry that the photo is not that good. The bracelet is silver and VERY shiny. It looks like a watch strap or a belt. I LOVE IT!
In addition, for a nominal additional charge you can have your TOM Box include Gillette Venus Blades 4PK (a girl has to look nice at all times, right?) and/or DOUBLE the amount of candy and make up.
Currently I see that you can get a trial TOM Box for only $5.00. After that the monthly subscription is $16.00 a month. It’s a monthly subscription so each month your card will be billed $16.00 when the box ships out. You can cancel at any time.
I think this is a pretty good deal for $16.00. The make up and jewelry alone makes it worthwhile. I may just look forward to “that time of the month” if I knew I’d be receiving the TOM Box.
The TOM Box would be a nice “gift” for a teenager who just had her first period or maybe even a college student. I’m sure a college student would appreciate the female supplies, candy, jewelry and make up.
TOM Box is from a company called Swaag Box.
What do you think about this idea? Would you like to receieve a TOM Box to make “that time of the month” less horrible? Feel free to share your thoughts.
