Women's Health

Maybe I'm in the minority but I love my period. Every month, I get a bloody reminder that yes, I'm fertile, and no, I'm not pregnant. Thank the Lord. It's another way for me to feel one with womanhood and the act of my uterine lining shedding feels oddly feminine for me. Perhaps the biggest downsides come by way of symptoms. And although I don't experience cramps (after Day 1), I do experience mood swings, cravings, inner thigh aches, back pain, and hormonal acne (jawline breakouts become the bane of my existence for about a week).

That being said, I'm almost certain that period-related symptoms are the reason most of us with vaginas aren't a fan of menstruation situations. And I must say I definitely empathize, sis. If you're in need of a little more TLC during your period, we've got you covered on all things period essentials. From tampons and pads to treats that will fulfill your cravings, below is an array of period subscription boxes sure to alleviate your time of the month. The best part?

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in.

Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
