Sometimes, it can feel like Mother Nature is taking over your life. Your period rolls around and you just want to lay on the couch in your sweatpants, eating all the things and doing nothing for 5 days straight! In other instances, you’re in the mood to go about your daily life and have fun, but anxiety associated with your period keeps you from living your best life. I’ve definitely been in both situations, but there is nothing worse than the latter! FOMO is a very real thing and the last thing you want to do is miss out on all the fun.
It’s about to get very real on this blog, but stay with me! Last weekend, Aunt Flo was in town, but I wasn’t about to let her ruin my weekend. It was warm and sunny, and I had plans to enjoy the gorgeous weather by the pool. I grabbed my swimsuit, packed my pool bag, and hit the road!
My secret weapon for a worry-free swimsuit day is Tampax! Whether I’m heading to the pool or the beach, I know Tampax has me covered. I can go swimming, lay out in the sun (with SPF and a good book, of course!), or even play some beach volleyball. What most people don’t know is that there are different Tampax tampons for different period needs! The perfect tampon for outdoorsy fun is Tampax Pearl Active. The FormFit™ technology boasts width-wise expansion to eliminate gaps that cause leaks, and the LeakGuard Braid™ channels fluid back into the core to help stop leaks before they happen. Not to mention the applicator is 20% slimmer!
After a day at the pool, there’s nothing like heading out for dinner with my fiancé! I love wearing white but it can be a bit nerve-racking when you’re on your period.
Tampax Pocket Pearl is the perfect size for slipping into my small clutches, and offers the exact same LeakGuard Braid™ protection as a regular size Tampax Pearl tampon!
What are some of your tricks for keeping your power over periods? Considering how much of our lives we spend on our periods (average of 2,280 days!), we shouldn’t let it hold us back!
