Ladies, straight to the point! Let's talk periods. Yup, we're going there. Some think its TMI, but having tricks up your sleeve for that time of the month is never TMI, right? By this point, we all know the deal and routine, but sharing tips always help. 

1. Keep it on track. The funny thing is, that time of the month, once a month, every quite easy to forget. What's worse than sitting in school or work, or being out and about running errands then surprise! Yeah, we've all been there. Lucky for us, there's an app for that (ALOT of apps). Periods can be tracked down to the day, and you can be reminded and alerted ahead of time so you can have a little emergency kit on you. Technology, huh?

2. Keep it moving. I know, the last thing you want to do is exercise. But trust me, (and proven scientific research!) it helps a whole lot when it comes to cramps and overall mood. Particularly, yoga and walking. Honestly, I think every woman does some yoga. You know the moment when you're in bed and you have cramps, and you're just tossing, turning, and stretching...yeah, that sounds like yoga to me, lol. But really guys, a bit of light exercise does wonders. 

3. Indulge. I absolutely love how many of us seem to be on a health craze these days. But period cravings are no joke, and I say it's the best time to indulge! Don't go crazy and eat your way through the week. I'm saying we all have our unhealthy treats at heart, and having a late-night bowl of ice cream can really boost our spirits. But try stay away from salty food. Salt equals more bloating, and none of us want that.

As for my look of the day, comfort is key. Tight jeans aren't in mind, so a navy blue dress with stretch, a denim top to tie around the waist (hide that bloat!), and a pair of sneakers are juuuust right. 

While we're on the topic, there is an issue that could use more awareness. While we have our pick of countless feminine products to choose from, each year there are 3.5 homeless Americans who have trouble accessing period products. Holly Sanchez tweeted on this issue being overlooked, which inspired and U by Kotex to form a partnership and work with Holly to execute the Power of the Period drive which encourages people to buy and donate an extra pack of period products to a homeless shelter.

If you want to get involved: donate new, unopened, packaged period products to a Power of the Period drive in your area. If there isn't one in your community, go ahead and be a part of starting one! Visit or for more info on how to get involved. :)
