REAL TALK: PERIOD EMERGENCY KITS

Compact Period Emergency Kit

The period emergency kits that I've seen have always been geared toward teens and tweens, but believe me, shark week can hit anyone who isn't prepared! I thought it would be fun to assemble a chic, simple and compact period emergency kit for the modern woman on the go--check out all my essentials below!

UNITE FOR A CAUSE WITH TAMPAX

Earlier this month, I got the amazing opportunity to partner with Tampax to donate 40,000 tampons to the charity of my choice in honor of Menstrual Hygiene Day! Tampax partnered with several influencers to donate a total of one million tampons to various charities and organizations focused on providing much needed items to women in need. Incredible, right?!

BUSTING THE ONE SIZE FITS ALL MYTH

Always My Fit Titlehttp://www.curvygirlchic.com/2017/06/busting-one-size-fits-all-myth.html

As a plus size woman, trust me when I say, the concept of "One Size Fits All" items is a Total. Joke. I mean honestly, are you really trying to sell me on the idea that an item will fit the same on my size 20 body as it does on a size 2? Common sense begs to differ! A good fit is all about knowing what your body needs to look and feel its best. In fact, one of the questions I'm most commonly asked is how to look great on a budget. My answer is always to find items that fit well! To me, you can wear a $5 shirt and you'll look like a million bucks as long as the fit is right. Conversely, you can spend $500 on a designer jacket but if it doesn't fit well, it won't be worth the money spent!

To really debunk the OSFA myth, I thought it'd be hilarious to show you guys my trying on (or attempting to try on) a one-size item I found while out shopping last weekend! Just a heads up, these are definitely not the most "flattering" photos you'll ever see of me, and even if I don't usually care about whether an item is flattering, I think you can tell that I'm just plain uncomfortable because the pieces just don't fit right!
