Thank you for visiting me once a month just to let me know I am not pregnant. You couldn’t send me a nice text message or email to notify me of this news? You didn’t come at the same time scheduled either so now you threw me for a loop! Aunt Flow, the always obnoxious, door banging, uninvited guest…for most women. I mean sure it’s great to know you aren’t pregnant if you weren’t trying to get pregnant. Be honest though, did you still want to spend a week with this visitor?
More often than not our busy lives send us in to a lapse of judgement on keeping track of when our visitor will make the next appearance. For this exact reason, I keep a period survival kit in my vehicle. No pain I can’t handle, no embarrassing moments I can’t solve in a moments notice, and no place will I be stranded paying for all these things in an emergency!
I love that I can pick up most of these types of items at Walgreens when grabbing the U by Kotex Cleanwear Pads. Most of my stores are open 24/7 so I am never left high and dry in a bind!
What I pack to leave in my car (Please note, no chocolate candy as it would melt!)
- U by Kotex Cleanwear Pads, available at Walgreens!
- A change of panties
- Organic Fruit & Nut Mix to curb cravings and is high in protein
- Chocolate sandwich cookies, to curb that chocolate craving
- Jif To Go Dippers – more protein and no melting, plus very portable
- Chewing gum
- Lavender essential oil
- A hair tie
- Pain reliever
- Bottle of water
- Eye Kit: Mascara and eye liner…if I am too lazy for full face, at least I look alive
- Cleansing wipes
All these essentials fit in one bag I keep in my trunk and never worry if I “forgot” I was due for a visit or if the schedule suddenly switches on me due to stress, anxiety, or sudden changes in my body.
Right now until 11:59PM 10/3 You can enter to win your very own period survival kit from Kotex.
