I love being a woman, I mean I really truly do, but our essentials pack list is like a work of art! Before my trips I always like to make a list just so I know I at least have what I NEED to make this trip one for the books, and anything extra is just that, a little extra cherry on the top of my getaway.

I teamed up with the lovely people at Tampax to help make your shopping process a little smoother AND cheaper! I carry Tampax in my luggage, my beauty bag, my backpack and my purse at all times so neither myself, nor my awesome circle of girlfriends, will find ourselves SOL when Aunt Flow pops up.


I always think it’s such a shame when women go on holiday and say they can’t do something like swimming or hiking or dress in something fabulous because they are on their period. I get cramps and I know sometimes we need a little R&R to cope but at the same time, I think we could do with a little mentality shift. And with the right protection, that is easy to do! Tampax Pearl is my GO-TO for tampons! Tampax Pearl has the leak guard braid to prevent leaks, fits comfortably, and comes in light, regular, super, or super plus to cover every level of our flow.

I refuse to miss a beach day, a quick dip, a layout in the sun in my tiniest of tiny bikinis so my tan lines are minimal, or any thing else on holiday. I am an adventure seeker and Tampax Pearl keeps me on my journey!

To shop for this trip, we are going to one place: Amazon.com

Amazon is my favourite! If you follow me on IG you have seen my daily Amazon finds, Its like walking through an empty mall where the only things on the shelves are the things you need and then things similar to the things you need, all competitively priced and you’re not actually walking, there’s no long lines, you don’t have to carry anything, you can actually stroll through from the comfort of your bed. AND THEN your bags show up at your door almost at the blink of an eye. The good life.

You can visit Amazon.com to order all your essentials. And right now, Amazon is offering an awesome deal on Tampax Pearl purchases!
