So it’s that time of the month again! Welcome. I know it sucks, the cramps, the mood swings, it all sucks. Your Fairy Glammother teamed up with the people from U by kotex to curate things to give you the greatest escape during that special time of the month.



Simply put, when you get home after a hard day of work you should relax. Burn a candle, take a pain reliever and a hot bath.  Tensing up won’t do anything but cause more pain. Take a load off.

Eat Right

With PMS comes killer cravings. You want sugar, you want salt and chances are, you will try to indulge that craving. Skip the chips and cookies and replace them with foods that contain complex carbohydrates like broccoli and spinach; fiber like corn and black beans; and sweets like apples and dark chocolate to curb those cravings. And drink lots of water! (source)

Give yourself from ‘me’ time


What’s your favorite color? Go dig in your stash and pick your favorite nail color and give yourself a mani and a pedi. Run a hot bath and use an aromatherapy bodywash or bubble bath product to relax your mood. Pop a pain reliever and slap on your favorite face masque and lay down and relax. Invest in a superluxe hand cream and massage your hands. Dedicate a little extra time to you.

Use the best period products on the market


It does not matter, whether you are a tampon girl or pad girl, U By Kotex products are hip, trendy, stylish and most importantly they are high quality and take care of your needs. The U by kotex Sleek Tampon is my favorite product from their line. It features a smooth tip for easy insertion, PerfectTouch grip for ‘just right’ placement, and a slim size for comfort, with all the absorbency you need to avoid embarrassing leaks.

There’s also the U By Kotex Cleanwear Pads (if you are a pad gal). The  CleanWear cover keeps you fresh and dry, no bunching TrueFit wings to help your pad in place, and a 4-layer absorbency system to prevent leaks, giving you the best protection.

Finally, swing by the U by kotex website and request a free sample.

Hopefully these little tips will help make that time of the month just a little brighter! Tell me, what do you do during that ‘time of the month’ to make the time fly by? You never know, your tips might help someone!
