Grab Bag Bliss Box:
My friend Danielle threw out a Facebook post about Blissmo awhile back, saying she loved her Blissmo boxes. I didn’t have time right then to click through and find out what that was, so it was soon forgotten.
Thank goodness my sister decided to gift me monthly Blissmo boxes, and now I’m here to share this gem of an idea with YOU.
Blissmo is the brainchild of Sundeep Ahuja (random fact: also an actor with stints on Entourage and 24). Blissmo does two things:
1. Curates organic/eco-friendly products in loads of categories and offers them “Groupon” style, at deep discounts to you, twice a week. blissmo.com
2. Blissmo Box is a membership program where you join with a month-to-month, 3-month plan or 6-month plan ($22, $19 and $18 dollars a month respectively). blissmobox.com
Each month you get three choices of categories for your next box. Make your choice and a box of eco-friendly products are sent to you. This month’s choices are Winter Skin Defense, Fitness Foods and Cleaner Cleaning (I got that one).
Last month I got Chocolate Lovers… so yummy… such GOOD, clean, dark chocolate offerings… including Cocoa Tea!
In their own words:
At blissmo, we introduce you to exceptional organic & eco products at discounts up to 70% off via email twice-a-week, and via monthly care packages delivered right to your door.
So get your bliss-on, Grab Baggers… and enjoy THIS once-a-month visit WAY more than some I can think of 🙂
Grab Bag Burger Buster:
From Bliss to Bust… here we find the scary side of what is offered out there. Just in case anyone needed ANY further excuse not to eat fast-food, here it is….
… and from the children in our lives, they are begging us to teach them to know better… even if it tastes good.
Here I offer a small but significant experiment profiled by Laura Northrup:
Have you ever wondered what a McDonald’s Happy Meal looks like after it’s sat on a shelf (not in a freezer) for a year? …Not as disgusting as you might think, which itself is sort of disgusting.
It smelled delicious for a few days. I’d get a whiff of those yummy French fries every time I walked into my office. After a week or so, you could hardly smell it. My husband worried that when the food began to decompose, there would be a terrible odor in our home. He also worried the food would attract ants and mice. He questioned my sanity.
NOPE, no worries at all. My Happy Meal is one year old today and it looks pretty good. It NEVER smelled bad. The food did NOT decompose. It did NOT get moldy, at all.
OooooKaaaaayyyyy…. a fascinating amount of chemicals and technology went into that meal. Do we want all that in the little bodies it is targeted for? I suspect that most of the adult fast food fare would have similar results. Ugh 😯
