A GREAT APP FOR TRACKING YOUR CYCLE

Hey girls! As a quick little follow up to yesterday’s THINX period panties post (which did really well, by the way, I guess everyone has been curious), I wanted to share an app that I’ve been using lately to get to know my body and its cycle better. I never used to pay attention to this or care much but something in me clicked this year (perhaps it was my bio-clock kicking in, or perhaps it’s the political threats to my right to choose what the hell I do with it, ahem) that made me want to take ownership of my body’s functions.

THINX REVIEW – THE PERIOD PANTIES THAT YOU …

Oh why the heck not?! We’re all girls here, aren’t we? So let’s talk about menstruation and the latest and greatest way to handle your monthly visitor.

Everyone listen up! Have you tried the new Essie Gel Couture polish? It’s a game-changer in the world of at-home manicures.

I’ve been looking for a solution to getting gel manicures in the salon for two reasons – expense and time. I simply can’t afford to spend too much of either right now. This nail polish is the answer! 

PERFECTING BATH TIME

I’ve been working really hard lately to decrease stress, and taking a bath has become one of my go-to treats for relaxation and alone time – especially now that we have our own place with TWO bathtubs! The key to perfecting bath time is the right ambience and activities, so I always take a few minutes to prepare for it. Read on to make the most of yours. You deserve it!

RECENT DRUGSTORE BEAUTY FINDS

I’m an equal-opportunity beauty junkie. I’ll buy products from all over – be it Sephora or Target – and while I love the personalized department store experience the most, I prefer the price tag of the drugstore, hands down. I bet you do, too! This month I’ve found four products – one makeup, one skin, one hair and one body – under $30 each  that I am loving. All were purchased from either CVS, Target or Walgreens.
