Mooncup – Review

I can finally do a Mooncup review since I used it! Yaaay! πŸ™‚

image

I’ll tell you right away what I think – AMAZING!

I can’t believe it took me so long to find out about this, I wish I knew of it earlier!
So if you’re interested in my experience keep on reading! πŸ™‚

The first day, let me tell you, I was sooo excited to use it. It was a bit intimidating at first, but I was well prepared. I read all the articles, watched all the you tube videos, reviews, anything I could get my hands on. And everything I’ve read was true!

Let me break it down so it’s easier to read.

1. You don’t feel it
It is actually weird how you don’t even feel it once it’s in you! I never liked tampons because they were always uncomfortable for me. I could always feel them and with a cup, nothing. Literally nothing! You can move, jump, squat, exercise, swim – everything! It works like a vacuum inside, so if you do it right there won’t be any leakage. I just used a panty liner, but to tell you the truth, I didn’t need it.

2. You don’t actually lose that much blood
Your perception about how much blood you lose is NOT RIGHT! For sure, you think it’s more than it is. With the cup you’ll see exactly how little it is. There are markers on it and it is cool to see that.

3. Clean and hygenic feeling
I also never realized how much I felt icky (truly the right word when you’re on your period)! If you’re using pads, you know what I’m talking about. That feeling of blood going down. So uncomfortable! With the cup, the blood is collected inside of you.
Also, there is no fear of TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) like with tampons.

4. Eco friendly
The cup is reusable. As I understand, you can use it even for up to 10 years and more! How great is that?! It also means you’re not only saving the earth with less waste, you’re saving money!

5. Convenient
It is small. You can just put it inside your purse and carry it everywhere with you (it comes with a pouch). You don’t need to worry about borrowing a pad or a tampon or trying to find an open store to buy it since it’s reusable. And if you’re forgetful or changing your purses a lot, just get a couple of them, x)

*Conclusion*
All in all, I would give this product a 10/10!
This was the first time I was on a period and it didn’t feel like that! It felt like any other no-period-day. I felt clean and free. ^^
Mind now, this is my experience. It doesn’t mean it will be the same for you, but I do encourage you to TRY IT! Maybe you’ll need to cut the stem off like a lot of women do or just find another manufacturer, size or try a different fold. I would say, just stick with it, you’ll get there!

If you have ANY QUESTIONS, please fell free! No holding backs, no taboos, I’ll tryΒ  to answer honestly.

Be well! =)

For My Ladies – Mooncup

First things first – if you’re a guy, you probably won’t be interested in this. But you could learn something new! πŸ˜‰ Fair warming.
I got my Mooncup today!

I didn’t try it yet, but actually can’t wait to do so!

I found out about it by accident when I was reading blogs here on WordPress about minimalist living. I thought Wow, how come I didn’t hear about it earlier?! Everyone knows about pads and tampons, but when I talked to my friends not one of them heard about the menstrual cup! :/

Although it’s apparently been around since 1930s, it sounds new and revolutionary to me!

Why I decided to try it?

  • Eco friendly – it is reusable and it can last you for years
  • Money saver – since it lasts for years you don’t need to buy new one each month
  • Simplicity – it is just one thing, reusable and more hygienic

Once I started googling and you tubing it, I realized there is a whole community of ladies out there who use it and talk about it! I found out so many useful information.

Here is a link of a lovely young lady who does videos about alternative hygienic products like cups and reusable pads. I love her! So young, no taboos, she talks freely and with no inhibitions. I learned so much from her! Her channel is called Precious Star Pads.

After researching about it I found out they actually sell it in my home country so a friend got it for me. It was around 32$.

Are any of you using it? What are your experiences with it! Leave a comment!

If you want to see how it goes for me, I will be writing about it again once I’ve used it, so press follow and stay tuned! =)

They’re Here!

Just a quick hello from me since I’m a bit busy now and my friend came to visit.
Aaaand…. I’ve chosen my shoes! =D Unfortunately, they didn’t have the second pair, but never mind. I’ll get them! πŸ˜‰
Just to show you my new ones. Can’t wait to start wearing them! ^^

Hopefully, in my next post I’ll pair them with some nice outfit! :))

My To Do For A New Me :)

Couple of days ago I had such an insomnia before a flight – it was so frustrating! You know the feeling – you’re trying to sleep and your brain is working 100 per hour. :S

It got me thinking about my life in Dubai or the lack of it. It is easy when you are home, you have some kind of routine, but here, there is no routine. So let’s make it ourselves!

Here is what I’ve decided. Hope it helps you or if you have some tips, I’d be glad to hear them!

1. Sleeping routine

Make a routine. No TV or phones! Maybe some relaxing music or a good book accompanied with a hot cup of tea. This will be hard for me since I’m a big movie fan.

Also, name 3 thingsΒ you areΒ grateful for that day.

2. Daily routines

A) Drink a glass of water immediately after getting up.

B) Morning workout. I am not talking about 45 min or more. Something short and sweet. There are plenty of pins on Pinterest you can find. My personal goal is to run at least 15 min or skip rope for 5. In time increase that.

3. Tasks

I always have lots of ”To Do” Lists. Some I do, most I don’t. Haha

Lists are good, but sometimes I have so many things I can’t focus. Make top 3 tasks for that day and concentrate on finishing only them that day!

4. Free Time Jar

I am keeping my ”To Do” lists. πŸ™‚ Write down ideas what you want to do in your free time – visit a park, go to movies, go ice skating, do some arts and crafts, cook… Learn something new! Put it on colourful papers and in a jar or some box. Why? It’s just prettier! x) If it looks good, you will want to do it! πŸ˜‰

I’ll try to do at least one thing from the list in 2-3 days period.

5. Go out

Sometimes on my free days I just want to relax so I stay in the house. Sure, it’s good from time to time, but if you go out you will actually have more energy.

That’s why I’ll ”force” myself to go out daily at least for a walk from one metro station to another. Go out for fresh air!

6. Stay Positive

Don’t forget to surround yourself with positive people. Hang out with your friends and smile! A simple smile really can change someone’s day! πŸ˜‰ What you give is what you get! It’s all about perspective!

Be grateful for what you have (what I’ve said before, reflect on your day before going to sleep and name 3 things you are grateful for that day).

And for the end, write it down on a piece of paper and hang it somewhere! Make it visible to remind yourself of what you need to do!

Research show it takes about 66 days to form a new habit!Β Long time, sure. It will be a hard at the beginning, but you can do it! πŸ˜‰

live long and prosper

If you have any tips and tricks you do which you think will help, please share and comment! I am more than happy to hear from you! πŸ™‚

OOTD New Sneakers

Hi!
I don’t know if you remember my wish list post on the Startas sneakers, but I finally bought a pair!
In the end, I chose very simple ones, light grey. I thought it was the most work appropriate. They are hand made suade and they got this nice, big bow in the front which you can take off.

image

Lovely! ^^
I had some problems finding them because they stopped their manufacture *cry*, but I met a realy nice sale lady who ordered them from another city which had my size! How nice is that?!? πŸ™‚ Yaay!

They also got some new ones out.

image

I’m not quite sure how I feel about them yet. But they attract me in a strange way. What do you think?

Anyways, in honor of my new sneakers I’m posting an OOTD.

image

Two combos. One is with a see through white cotton shirt and the other with my latest thrift find. This green/dark blue shirt with dainty flowers (50Β’). I paired it with powder pink shorts and pink belt (not really a pink fan but really liking these shorts). Top it off with some golden bagles and done!
Which one do you like better?

Have a nice day everyone! Kisses! πŸ™‚
