Periods are rubbish!

Hey, hey, hey!

I’m back again banging on about my mailing list subscriber giveway! 🎉

Now let me introduce you to two fabulous brands who are saving the earth one period at a time!

As Wear’em Out say – periods are rubbish!

No, really. Did you know the average person uses 22 disposable sanitary products per period? And they all end up in landfill, or even worse, on our beaches and in our seas. 

@wearemoutpads has gifted us a ‘lighter trial pack’ of pads.

Lauren is mum of four and founder of the new award winning reusable period pad brand that is taking the world by storm. Wear‘em Out pads are manufactured in the UK and made of high quality, hard working fabrics. Each of the four pad sizes are designed with comfort and confidence at the forefront and aimed at modern lifestyles.

And

@periodpantsclub has gifted us a pair of bamboo hipsters.

Sam, the founder of Period Pants Club, trained and worked as a lingerie/swimwear designer for 15 years. In this time she learnt a lot about pants but, as her eyes were opened to the struggles our planet was facing, she knew that she wanted to do more. So she created a brand that she truly believed in and @periodpantsclub was born.

Her aim was to engage more people into the wonderful world of reusable period wear. To offer more than your basic black brief. Being on your period didn’t mean you had to wear boring pants! 

PS both products can help with other little leaks too! Please do give both of these fabulous brands a follow and don’t forget to sign up to my mailing list before the end of June. Add your email below.

I’m already a smug convert – yes, you feel very virtuous as you wear them. Would you give them a try? 

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Jodie Fern Jewellery

I’m really happy to say that I’ve joined up again with the incredibly lovely and talented Jodie @jodiefernjewellery to add some shine to the subscriber giveaway prize.

Each piece of Jodie’s jewellery is carefully handcrafted and made in small, made-to-order batches in her little workshop in Warwickshire.

​The making process is carefully considered with sustainability and ethics at its core and each item is carefully gift wrapped in recycled tissue paper and posted in an eco-certified box.

I have a number of Jodie’s pretty items and admire all the thought, love and care that goes into what she does.

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning a pair of these earrings all you have to do is subscribe to my mailing list before the end of June! Sign up via the link below.

I am so bloody chuffed with all the lovely people and brands that have joined with me on this subscriber giveaway. They are all so special so please do give them some love and support!

Success! You're on the list.

Silver Sisters

I’ve been really shocked to read some of the posts from these ladies in the last few days. They’ve spoken about the negative comments that they have received from strangers about their choice to go grey.

And that folks is something that I will never understand about this social media malarky. Just because you have an opinion and can share it, it doesn’t mean that you have to!

Personally, you already know that I’m not ready to go grey, however I wish I were, because I feel like I’m being left out of the world’s most supportive, inspiring and empowering girl gang! Obviously though, I’m very pro age and therefore feel angered by the ageist comments thrown at them.

Yet why do some feel the need to judge and criticise others for the personal decisions on how they want to look and feel? Particularly as we age, which can be hard enough some days. 

Frankly, I think it comes down to the person writing the shit. A reflection of their inner issues and rarely anything at all to do with the person who’s sharing a bit of themselves on here. Or maybe they’re just a dick?! 🤷🏼‍♀️

And yes, I do think that it is worse when it’s a woman criticising another woman.

We’re hard enough on ourselves sometimes so let’s do more to build each other up not drag each other down! As the old saying goes, ‘if you haven’t got anything nice to say, then shut the f*k up!’
