Gramma In A Box Subscription Box – January 2022

If you follow any of my social media channels, you’ve probably seen the posts about Gramma In A Box Subscription. We’ve been receiving Gramma In A Box for about 4 months now. My kids love it.

Each month is a new theme with cookie cut outs and a candy treat to make. The best part, Gramma Terry does all the work for you. You get to do the fun part of decorating and eating your yummy treats.

January Gramma in a Box was Dog and Cat Themed. The box come with just about everything you need: icing, sprinkles, ingredients for the candy treats, and more.

This months candy treat was chocolate paw prints. The box came with rice crispies, melting chocolate, parchment paper, and m&m candies to create the paw prints.

Then of course, we had to sample the creations. Everything tasted yummy. It’s so awesome to create these treats together and not have to have the work of baking, full clean up, waiting for cookies to cook, etc.

While it might be too late to get your hands on a January box, there’s still time to get the February box. The February Gramma in a Box, as you might guess, will be Valentine’s Day themed.

Instead of just giving your child or grandchild a treat, why not have the gift of spending the time together and creating memories with these fun and delicious boxes. It is recommended to order each month’s box before the 8th of each month as there are a limited number available each month.

Give Your Valentine The Gift Of Jewelry AND Safety In One With Invisawear

I work in a hospital in small city. It’s not a particularly dangerous city. But areas very near to wear employees have to park are known to have their share of problems. I was driving to work one day and saw a SWAT team outside of a run down apartment building. That was about half a mile from where I park.

The hospital provides shuttle service from the parking lots during the day because parking is anywhere from 1 -3 blocks away depending on which lot you park in. Obviously the closer ones fill up first. But shuttle service is not available after 6 pm. And let’s face it, hospitals don’t close at 6 pm and there’s staff coming in at all hours.

I often choose to walk up to work to help get my steps in. Plus I tend to walk faster than the shuttle can get me there because of the stops and route it has to take. One day though, I was walking under the railroad trestle and a man jumped down from the trestle right in front of me. I’m not even afraid to admit that he scared the daylights out of me. He started laughing and rather mockingly said “Did I scare you?” and walked away laughing. Not long after I found out that that railroad trestle is a popular place for the homeless population to travel and hang out.

I had my phone in my purse. I have a tendency to put my hand to my heart when startled. I realize had he not just walked away and would have tried to take my purse or worse that I would not have had access to my phone. That’s where Invisawear comes into play.

Shop invisaWear - Safety Devices Disguised as Everyday Accessories

Invisawear is a discreet safety device disguised as jewelry. With options that include: necklaces, bracelets, key chains, and scrunchies. I think the scrunchy idea is great for everyday wear, outdoor running, walking, biking, or going to the gym. I personally love the necklaces because I feel like my reflex reaction to cover my heart would be easy and unassuming access to my necklace if I was in trouble.

You device/jewelry is able to notify pre-selected people of your choice of your location even if you’re not sure where you are. It also has the optional feature to contact 911. You can also choose to have it share personal information for 911 dispatchers so they can better help you.

Right now Invisawear is having a Valentine Sale:

Get 20% off plus 2 Day Free Shipping I’m excited to have the chance to review a piece of Invisawear jewelry. I’m choosing the necklace. I’m planning on doing an unboxing and review post so watch for that on my social media channels. I can think of so many occasions it would be a blessing to have piece of mind like this. Girls nights, 2nd and 3rd shift workers, travel (especially alone), home health workers, subway travel, runners and joggers, any place you’re not familiar with or has a less-than-positive reputation, etc. This would make an amazing gift that definitely shows you care.

I’m Trying The Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device

Let me first give a shout out to Tryazon and Silk’n for choosing me to try the Silk’n Infinity Hair Removal Device and allowing me to host a party. I’m so excited to get the device for free. I can’t wait to see my results.

So what made me apply to host a Silk’n Infinity party through Tryazon? Well, I’ve been thinking about doing laser hair removal for at least a year, maybe longer. I’m 41 years old. I’m just tired of shaving for temporary results, ending up with razor bumps and occasional nicks. Plus, the more I learned about it the more I realized that gray or light colored hair couldn’t be treated so I figured I was on a time table.

I actually took the step to email a local medical salon. I had multiple areas I wanted treated but I figured I’d start with a smaller area first and see how it goes. That was, until I heard the price and time requirements. $250 for the first session and consult. Then 4-6 more treatments after that with the possibility of more depending on how my body was responding. Initial consult session being about an hour to an hour and a half. With each session being an additional $200. In other words, I was easily looking at a minimum of $1000 just for one small area. Larger areas cost more. Well I just couldn’t afford that. I also didn’t want to have to worry about what to do with my youngest kids if they’d be virtual learning. So I temporarily gave up the idea.

Then I learned that there are at home pulsed light devices. There are many brands and types out there but the Silk’n Infinity hair removal device really stood out. The device cost less than just two treatment session at a professional salon but has enough pulses to remove hair everywhere I wanted to. It is one of the few devices that are FDA certified. It has a lot of safety features in place.

I did an unboxing video on facebook live if you’d like to check it out:

The Silk’n Infinity is approved for hair removal from the cheekbones down so you can remove hair from:

  • upper lip
  • jaw/face
  • underarms
  • chest
  • stomach
  • bikini line
  • arms
  • legs
  • feet
  • anywhere else you might want to remove hair below the cheekbones

On exception would be no Brazilian style hair removal. They do not recommend using it on sensitive areas like genitals and nipples.

There are a list of “do not use” reasons for the device and what types of hair it will work for. I strongly suggest you check out the website for who can use the device and safety precautions. Check out the Q&A and FAQs section to help answer your questions before buying.

I will also be hosting a zoom party in March around March 13. So if you’d like an invite to the zoom party to ask questions and learn about the device just leave a comment and let me know. OR direct message me on one of my social media channels if you want to be be more discreet about it.

I’ve already done two treatment sessions. It’s super easy to use, it does not hurt at all. The safety features in place really make it easy to ensure you’re doing things right. I plan on doing an update post around the time of my zoom party. I also want to do another post in about 12 weeks as that is the average range for noticable permanent hair removal when sticking with the regimen. My first session took a little longer than the 2nd as I was just learning the device. All in all it only took me about 40 minutes to do ALL the areas I wanted treated.

That being said, I’ll give even more info on my next update and at my zoom party. If you have any questions now, just leave them in the comments and I’ll answer the ones I can.
