Dollar Tree should be your VERY Best Friend if you are on a small monthly budget… or just like getting good deals.

I went to the mall today and saw this in the bathroom. I was absolutely shocked. This is the first time I’ve ever seen one of these machines. Obviously, we all have seen the ones that cost 25 cents but these were FREE. IS THIS THE START OF GOVERNMENT FINALLY PAYING FOR OUR “non-essential luxury goods”????? I WANT TO SEE THESE EVERYWHERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE ESPECIALLY IN SCHOOLS !! IT WILL SAVE SO MANY GIRLS PANIC AND STRESS ABOUT RANDOMLY HAVING THEIR PERIOD OR FORGETTING THEIR PADS/TAMPONS !!!!

What’s in my Nurse bag?

Inspired by @nursegif, I put together a little bag full of goodies! I plan on bringing this bag everywhere I go, not just those long shifts. It’s portable and chock full of on-the-go travel size necessities. The little bag itself was only $10 and while spacious, is very practical.

Make sure your bag is convenient for you. You never know when you’ll need some of these items! For example, I have panic disorder. I randomly get diarrhea, I get sweaty, and as you can imagine, it’s unpleasant.  Imodium and feminine wipes to the rescue!

I woke up this morning with cramps which announce that my period is about to take over. Well, I was annoyed because that means I have to go buy more pads and tampons and guess what, they are stupid expensive.

So, feeling annoyed with the pricing over ESSENTIAL female products I decided to google, “Why are feminine products so expensive?”

Well. I got to “Why are femini-” and when I saw what was coming up finished the word instead as “feminist”

This is why we need feminism.

Mexican singer Patricia Navidad shut down period-shaming with a pair of killer tweets

During a recent performance on Univision, it appeared Mexican singer and actress Patricia Navidad lost her feminine pad. The video subsequently went viral with many shaming her. 

She was having none of it though, and sent across the above two tweets. "It’s sad that there are men that forget they are here because of a woman, and they are offensive and vulgar to women,“ she wrote in Spanish, before noting that there’s nothing shameful about. So badass. Navidad then went on to explain why the trolls were wrong in the first place.

Women’s bodies are gross. Or, at least, that’s the core message of most “feminine hygiene” products. Pads and tampons provide “powerful protection” from menstrual blood. One company’s Amazon product description boasts that their pads help “channel fluid deep inside the pad and away from you.” Others market how “discreet” they are. Some products even come scented.

Menstrual cups leave no room for such squeamishness. You insert the bell-shaped silicone cup directly into your vagina and leave it there for up to 12 hours. When it’s time to remove it, you pour the blood out, wash the cup, and then reinsert it.
