@MyCottonBunny: Monthly Boxes For That Unwanted Visitor Giveaway~ 7/1

***I was provided one complimentary month of My Cotton Bunny service for the purpose of this feature. Regardless, all photos and opinions contained there in are property of Momma Told Me Blog 2013.
Momma Told Me: Don't bother to run, you can't escape.

I still recall the first time I met my Aunt. I was 11, entering the sixth grade, and one of the first of my friends to make this special introduction. Momma had warned me about Flow for years, so I was prepared physically, but hardly ready for the emotional and mental challenges of tackling this unwanted family member. In the beginning we got along fine enough; as fine as one can with a relative that moves in, uninvited, for a week and throws raging parties inside your personal space at all hours. Then, at 12, Flow went through a mid-life crisis. Her visits became more erratic, and longer. Her wild parties kept me up all night, and even left me with hangovers that forced Momma to pull me from school. Like most unstable relatives we're forced to live with, I was given pills (or rather, the pill) to help me cope with the side effects. Still, for years, Flow and I hardly spoke; I learned to tolerate her visits, and little more.

As a grown women my period have evened out; in part due to my hormone based birth control, but also due to the maturing of my reproductive system. Where I once had periods that kept me bed bound for days, and ran near two weeks in length, I can appreciate the 3 day stints I now pull today. However, I suppose, no woman ever quite becomes friends with this uninvited foe. I've made it a point of pride to try my best not to let this visitor interfere with the men in my life. That is to say I reserve my raw emotions and nagging cramps for a pint of ice cream and Pillow Pet. I suck it up each month because I am a woman, and I am strong. But there are still some aspects of this 40 year curse that I find hard to swallow. I mean, if I manage to get through the week without ripping Jay's head off, I think that deserves an award? And then there's the insult of having to make the trip of shame down then special women's aisle and shell out $5-8 for a box of tampons. Not only do I have to suffer with this, I have to pay for it too?
My Cotton Bunny
I pride myself on hunting down the newest products and services before they blow up and make it 'big'. I'm also a hopeless monthly subscription box addict. When I stumbled upon My Cotton Bunny, on accident, I had a clear "Now, why didn't I think of that?" moment. Here was a company offering a custom tailored Feminine Hygiene care bundle with hand picked edible treats and physical indulgences to put period back where they belong (at the end of a sentence). A little iffy as to whether this box is right for you? My Cotton Bunny offers the hottest feminine hygiene brands ( U by Kotex, o.b., Tampax, etc) in pads and tampons for the perfect fit to your personal cycle. Boxes ship once a month, or within days of ordering, so you can set it up to arrive just in the knick of time to soothe and take the hassle out of monthly preparation. My Cotton Bunny is also impressively affordable, featuring a 16 count of premium brand tampons (or chosen pads), an edible treat, and physical indulgence, for just under $14 a month, shipped.
Scratch Nail Wraps
I received one month of My Cotton Bunny for the purpose of this post and must admit I am officially hooked. This month's specially curated box included a 16ct box of my chosen cotton (Tampax Radiant, Super), Original Gourmet Lollipop, and Nail Spa Bundle including Glass Nail File and Nail Wraps by Scratch. And you thought this was all about the period! My Cotton Bunny has a personal mission to kick the period to the side and indulge the women who deserve it. Not only did I get to indulge myself, and boost my confidence during this challenging week, with my Scratch Nail wraps, but I enjoyed the much needed bite of sugar as well. The brand also runs monthly incentives to spread the My Cotton Bunny mission socially, and issues a 'challenge' to subscribers in exchange for a bonus in their box the following month. This month we were asked to take a picture of our freshly wrapped nails and tag @mycottonbunny for an extra treat in next month's box.

Not only is the My Cotton Bunny concept a fresh and original one, it's a subscription service well worth buying into, in this humble blogger's opinion. There are countless subscription box services hitting the net these days, and many of them are much more than the My Cotton bunny Service. With this particular plan you can take advantage of always having your favorite period protection on hand, and indulge in the small surprises of treats and trinkets selected specifically to empower and soothe. As of right now there is no allergen specification for new subscribers, though I do want to note last month's box included a preservative free gourmet marshmallow treat; the brand is conscious of selecting quality treats and snacks. There is, however, an incentive to subscribe to multiple months at a time, a six month subscription will save you 10% overall, and shipping is always included. The mailing box itself is a bit on the large side, so subscribers should expect doorstep delivery; this is done intentionally to accommodate for goodies of varying sizes.
A My Cotton Bunny subscription would make a wonderful graduation gift for any young woman going off to college; it's the modern care package. It would also be the perfect treat for tweens getting used to their changes, or for a boyfriend who'd like a little less madness in his life each month (it's the gift that gives for everyone). I know I'll be talking Jay into buying a subscription for me; $14 is a small price to pay for a little extra breathing room one week a month! I'm really excited to see where this subscription brand goes; and hope as many of my readers are equally excited by the unique service as I. Follow My Cotton Bunny on Facebook for a sneak peek at next month's box, and head on over to the site today to order the box featured above!

What Daughter Says: Misery may love company, but I'd rather find bliss. My Cotton Bunny offers fuss free solutions to monthly woes, in a pretty package.

  12. What a great idea! I love that they send you a little pick-me-up and that I wouldn't have to go shopping for tampons. The little treats are a great diversion. The best part is that you get to choose which product, because I think most girls have a specific brand they stick with.

  22. I'm liking this idea because of several reasons. Not only does it deliver products to your door. No more vacillating over dozens of products in store. But it comes with some much needed goodies at that time of the month.
