Ex Officio Travelers Undies

I heard about these travelers undies while listening to travel blogs at work one day. Since my mum and I are preparing for a week-long trip to the UK with just our carry-on luggage, I’m looking for as many ways as possible to make my pack lighter (more space=more room for souvenirs). One of the blogs I was listening to brought Ex Officio up; apparently their underwear is some of the best in travel for men and women, so I figured I would try it out!

Thinx Period Panties

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.
