this is life baby

Shark week survival guide.

Today I woke up ridiculously bloated only to discover I got my period a day earlier. Anyways it’s actually a relief since there was a small fear in the back of my mind that I might have gotten myself in trouble, after drinking my ass off and then fucking the barman (I had the suspicion that he might have taken the condom off later during sex, which he later reassured me he didn’t but you can never be too safe with men…) I am also planning to test myself for STD’s not that he had something but you know just to be safe and out of respect for my future partners. Anyways enought of this nonesense drama, so my bloating is like… extravagant! It might be the fact that I was sick and im still on antibiotics(they have recked havoc on my gut :’/) but im feeling so bad and I thought I’d share with you my advice on how to get through this.

Time to wash all that blood off…

-A hot bath.                                                                                                         Not too hot and avoid it all together if you’re a heavy bleeder. It will help ease the cramps though and relax you in general, we all know how cranky we get during that time. Add some vanilla, you favorite bath melt or some essential oils (but for gods shake no shower gels! Remember the Kitty post?) Treat yo’self princess.

-Loads of water.                                                                                                  A hydrated uterus is a happy uterus. Everything will function much better plus drinking water will help release some of that water weight your belly’s been holding onto for dear life.

-Tea.                                                                                                                     Tea’s like water but also good for your soul. Go for green tea for a punch of antioxidants, chamomile tea because you’re a fucking fairy and you love your floral water or lipton cupcake tea beacause you’re on your period and you feel like it. (optional add-ins: honey, coconut sugar, maple syrup.)

-Pamper yourself.                                                                                              Shave, wash your hair, scrub, apply a thick coat of that delicious body butter, spray your favorite perfume, change your sheets, light a candle or two, play some music or watch your favorite series (Supernatural fans I’m looking at you…)

-Don’t eat unhealthy.                                                                                         I know baby girl, I know, those donuts are calling your name and there’s a tub of ice cream waiting to be bought just from you, but I promise you, you’ll feel like crap after all that… So skip the french fries and reach for some fresh salad or a nice plate of spaghetti al pomodoro fresco e basilico (Cause you’re a fancy bitch).

-Do eat though.                                                                                                    Fresh fruits and veggies, legumes, meat… all that stuff’s so good for you and your tummyin distress. Keep full so you don’t get extra bitchy but also fuel your body correctly. It will help with all the pms symptoms.            

-Exercise.                                                                                                              No, bad girl, don’t just slouch on your couch all day. Those cramps sure are a hell of an excuse to nap extensively but it won’t do you any good. Do sleep adequetly but get up and get active! You’ll feel so much more energized.

-Bonus tips:

Avoid tampons, they’re extremely unhealthy, opt for pads or menstrual cups instead.

Rinse your coochie after every visit to the bathroom with plenty of lukewarm water and carry baby wipes with you when you go out. ( I like to use babywipes in general but especially during my period as they clean everything so much better and freshen you up!)       

Carry an “emergency” bag. Have some pads,a clean pair of underwear, your babywipes, some tissue and a wet bag for accidents. Keep one in your purse, in your car, at your boyfriends house, work, school, etc… Plus try and keep an extra pair of pants wherever possible.

Have you guys seen any Chungnam uni fancam of Wonjae’s performance today? The fan singing was crazy. Wonjae’s live was especially good today but sometimes he kind of couldnt help laughing because the fans were cheering so loud and rapping along and singing all the melodic parts it was amazing. And every time he laughed the crowd went even crazier.

My baby is so loved im so happy

20.09.17 // So I was too ill this morning to go to college, said I’d sleep for two hours then go in later. Never slept. Got up and commuted into town. Was on my break anyway so I said I’d take a minute to look around some bookshops. Almost passed out. Commuted home and now I’m in bed. On the bring side I’ve located some books on the Grimm brothers for a college presentation due in MARCH. Hence the German books here that my dad got me in Berlin (I think). Anyway, always give credit to your local library because they’re FANTASTIC and found one book in stock and ordered two perfect ones within half an hour for me, emailed and called me to let me know. I LOVE the library!! Anyway, c'est la vie. Or so ist das leben, for the day that’s in it. 🦊

don’t be a bummer babe ❗️
