The Treat Trove

You may have noticed recently that monthly pampering boxes are becoming a bit of a thing. Particularly ‘period boxes’, usually filled with practical stuff (pads, tampons, cups, wipes, that sort of thing) as well as a few treats (choccies, candles, scented bits and bobs, stuff for neutralising the rage within!).

For those of us who actually enjoy our moontime, it’s a little bit of indulgence to mark the occasion. And for those people for who struggle with their periods, a monthly box of goodies is something to look forward to that isn’t cramps and loose bowels!

Lucy’s List – July (week 1)

OH MY GOD, IT’S TOO HOT! I don’t like it. I don’t like doing three school runs in this heat. I don’t like sweat – back sweat, under boob sweat, sweat of the nether regions (it’s not just me, is it?!), or even *shudder* other people’s sweat! Ugh. I don’t like sun cream. Sticky, greasy sun cream on my clammy, hot children. I don’t like the extra washing. I don’t like flies coming in through my open windows. I don’t like getting tangled in my bedding and thrashing about trying to sleep and failing. I don’t like eejits driving like utter plonkers with their soft tops down, their engines revving, and their chav music blaring. I don’t like drippy, sticky, melty ice lollies in the hands of my youngest child. I don’t like the blisters from that pair of sandals that were mega comfy last year but this year seem to be made from barbed wire. I don’t like the burning thigh chaffage I get if I wear a dress. I don’t like all the grass and dead things floating in the padding pool.

I DON’T LIKE IT.

WIWTM – June 2015

I seem to have used more pads than usual this month. My period wasn’t any longer than it normally is – four days – and it didn’t feel particularly heavy. I think the warmer weather just makes me more aware of wearing them and I feel like I want to change more frequently to stay feeling fresh and dry.

I’m still a sucker for a beautiful bamboo velour but I’ve been reaching for my cotton jersey pads lately. For me, they feel more comfortable and less hot. Being the same fabric as my knickers helps too. I’m wearing more pantyliners generally throughout the month, particularly around ovulation. No one likes a sweaty undercarriage on a hot day, do they?!

Glitzy Rumps

I was contacted out of the blue by a lovely lady called Kia, who happens make cloth pads under the name of Glitzy Rumps. She’s a relatively new maker but clearly a talented seamstress.

There are two styles of pads available at Glitzy Rumps – Sleek and Contour. Kia sent me a pad from each range, along with a cute little bundle of sweets and wax burner melts:

A new design from Moon and Stars Pads

I’ve worked with Moon and Stars Pads before, reviewing their bed mats and pads. You can read that here. So I was delighted when Kate requested testers and a review of her newest design prior to launch. I’ve never seen a pad quite like this before. And here it is:
