I've been massively hormonal this weekend, how about you? 😭 Seriously, to those of us who have periods, we are bad ass! I've felt so joyless and exhausted and irritable and generally blah the last week and now I'm just in pain. How the hell we deal with this once a month (or more), I'll never know! Still, it means I'm healthy and my body is working as it should. I have suffered in the past with a very VERY intense form of PMT which is luckily (although still intense) a bit more controlled now, and I don't like to use anything hormonal as it affects my mental health, so once a month I just have to ride it out! (I have watched GOT, done three different facial treatments, set my hair, tidied up, did some work that's been weighing me down and the magazine launched successfully, so I'm feeling a bit better now!) How do you cope? #periods#pmt#menstruationnation#pmdd#periodchat#vintagestyle#wetset#pinkroom#peoplewhobleed#hormones#freshface#nofilter#vintage#vintagegirl#tattoos#nomakeup EDIT: Let's also try and remember that there are men that get periods too! ❤️🏳️🌈
new blog post: all about period cups!
i've been using a cup for 6 months and am never looking back. there are many benefits to using one, mainly that they're so good for our planet 🌍 (12 BILLION PADS are disposed of annually), our bodies (goodbye toxic cotton tampons), our wallets (saves $1,500 in 24 years, thats a trip to paris), and our time. most importantly, though, my period cup has helped me feel a deeper connection with my body + cycle which i think is pretty cool.
i wrote a whole blog post on why i ❤️ cups, tips for using, which one i use (@lunettecup) and more. i also delve deep into the period stigma and how periods are NOT gross, dirty, or anything to be embarrassed about, and the conversation starts with us. give it a read(link in bio) and i wish you all the best thursday! #leefromamerica

Happy Sunday! Just a friendly reminder that if you think that blood coming out a vagina is gross just remember that you came out of a vagina so that makes you gross. 😊💋✨

To all of the womb-having folks out there, here’s your friendly reminder that you are under no obligation to hide your menstruation in order to make others more comfortable.
You’re allowed to talk about it openly. You’re allowed to keep your sanitation products on the counter or ask someone to pick up a box of your pads/tampons while they’re at the store. And you’re damn well allowed to admit how messy and uncomfortable and often painful it is to be on your period instead of using the flowery, miraculous, beautiful language that’s usually associated.
Ditch the shame and the embarrassment. Forget about the need to please those who can’t handle the mere mention of it. Embrace the heating pad, the stretchy pants, the comfort food, and the Netflix binge.
And while we’re here, to the women who don’t get a period regularly or at all, there’s no need for shame in that either. No ifs ands or buts about it. Bleeding monthly or not doesn’t change the fact that you are fully and completely a woman.
Also, everybody should have access to a safe, clean environment for their menstruation needs, should be given ample sanitation products, and they should definitely be tax free.

Education is to know what is correct and also to make others aware of it. God has created humans. Humans have walked through his door with every features. If it said God is in inside everyone, then why we worship a sculpture and even why a God can't worship his own sculpture. Every women has right to worship any God. Because God is One. And it's in living being. Love others.
