My kiddos love helping out in the kitchen, especially if the projects involve creativity and the end result is a sweet treat.  Gramma In a Box is their favorite subscription box these days, because it is full of hands-on food projects that do just that!


 Gramma in a Box is a monthly subscription box which delivers everything you need to make 15-20 sweet treats inspired by Gramma.


The June box featured Emoji and Minion themed goodies and enough supplies for 3 different edible projects.


Step-by-step instructions with illustrations are included, along with everything you need for a fun treat crafting experience recommended for ages 4 and up. 

Project # 1: 
Emoji Marshmallow Pops




Project #2:
Minion  Bites





Project #3:

The kiddos had a blast creating these tasty Minion and Emoji treats!  The instructions were easy peasy, the projects were fun and the creations were delicious.   


Gramma in a Box is $20 per month when you sign up for a recurring debit or credit card payment.  You can also purchase 3 months, 6 months or 12 months prepaid at slightly discounted rates and you can cancel any time.

If you are a grandma that lives too far from your grandkids to bake together, Gramma in a Box is a great idea for a fun, hands-on activity to share across the miles that is sure to create lasting memories.

#WelcomeSummer with On Trend Fashion from KUT from the Kloth!


*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to KUT from the Kloth for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


As a busy mom, I often have a hard time finding stylish clothes that fit well and are comfortable.  Comfort is one of my biggest fashion goals and I am your typical jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.  I am by no means a "fashionista" but I like to stay on trend...no "mom jeans" here:)  I was super excited to find a brand that offers cute clothes in REAL sizes that are as stylish as they are comfy...KUT from the Kloth!  


KUT from the Kloth sent me an outfit from their new collection featuring and awesome pair of mid-rise skinny jeans and a flowy summer shirt.  Both are gorgeous and super flattering and became instant staples in my wardrobe.  Seriously, if I leave the house, odds are I'm wearing these jeans!


Let's take a look at the pieces individually, shall we?


This lightweight, printed blouse let's you transition from spring to summer seamlessly.  It can be dressed up or down all season long.  I love the boho chic pattern!


It is machine washable, which is a must for my clothes.  Who has time to go to the dry cleaners?  


This shirt is soft and swishy and doesn't cling meaning it's super figure flattering.  The sleeves are slightly belled and allow for added breathability.  This shirt is so cool and airy!


Layered with thin tank, it looks great with jeans or shorts.  I'm sure it'd look great with skirts too, but I don't think I own a skirt...gasp! :)


These jeans are made with a extremely soft cotton blend and this chic pair of skinny jeans are cropped at the ankle creating a figure-flattering silhouette. 


A button-fly and subtle deconstruction at the knee finishes the look.


These jeans are super flattering thanks to the tapered skinny leg and the stretchy jean material.  The best part...they are true to size!  I am typically an 8, but in some brands I have to shop in larger sizes...not cool jean companies...not cool at all!  I want to feel good in my clothes.  I don't want to be an 8 in one pair and a 12 in another.  My jeans from KUT from the Kloth make me feel good every time I wear them!  Yay!


These jeans have all of the on trend style features that make your jeans look fresh too..no "mom jeans" here!  I mean, I'm not trying to look like a 20 year old, but I'm also not trying to look like I'm straight from the early 90's either:)  


These jeans rock!  The top is lovely too:)  Seriously, if you are looking for a great variety of on trend apparel to get you all the way through summer (and beyond!) check out KUT from the Kloth...clothes that just make you feel good!
