Alright Fangirls, ages ago I got myself the Flo-Control box from Madame Ladybug. I bought it as a tester, and wrote my thoughts about it here. I was thinking about how nice it was to have snacks delivered before my period, along with helpful feminine care items. So I thought that it would be rad to go hard and get myself Ladybug’s fanciest box; the ultimate indulgence!
Alright friends and Fangirls, we’re going to get personal very quickly today, as we’re diving right into a conversation about periods (maybe “dive” wasn’t the best word choice. Oh well). Periods can suck, because often you’re tired, you’re in pain, and sometimes you end up ruining your favorite undies. It’s the worst; nobody wants to think “oh it’s over” and then find the last remains of your happiness spotting your favorite undies. Nope. So when I was told about Harebrained’s Period Panties (by my friend Colleen, who is hilarious and perfect), I was intrigued. Then I saw the designs, and was delighted.
Alright Fangirls, it’s time once more to get period-level-personal, and to talk about feminine products. Awhile back I ordered myself a GladRag; they had a deal where you could pay shipping & handling, and get the GR for free. Looking to try more non-disposable options, I placed my order and patiently waited. When it came in, I started using it, sparingly.
Fangirls, I never saw myself as buying period panties that I considered “fancy.” Period undies have always been undies that it isn’t a big deal if they get bled on, because even with pads and tampons, it’s a possibility. But at the end of December I said to myself that since I’m trying to do better for myself this year, I may as well try doing something better for the environment too, and I ordered myself a pair of Thinx.
Fangirls, like many women out there, I have a monthly period. Once a month, my uterus sheds, and it can be frustrating. I don’t get grumpy, I just get hungry and horny and zitty. It’s not a fun time. Luckily, there’s a rad company called Madame Ladybug who has made it their mission to make women’s periods something they look forward to, instead of dreading.
Keeping track of your body and health is pretty darn important, Fangirls. Luckily, for those of us who find it hard to do so or are just a little flaky, there’s the wonder of technology. Clue is an amazing app that I’ve just discovered, that helps you track your period, it’s symptoms, and your fertility and ovulation. It’s useful, well designed, and a brilliant tool for those who deal with the lovely menstrual cycle. Read More »
