I’m sharing #Tampax in my travel essentials as part of an Tampax sponsored series for Socialstars™
Who wants to have their girls’ trip ruined by their unruly period? Not me! Now, I have never been a Girl Scout but I sure pack like one. OK, so I have a habit of over packing. Hey! I’m prepared for everything. If you need it, I probably have it in my bag of travel essentials. I never want to be caught off guard if my period decides to magically make an appearance.
I swear my period is like a lazy employee…when I wake up in the morning, she cracks one eye open and decides not to show up for work. She calls in sick on a regular basis. Oh, but let me say the word “trip” and she perks up. My period turns into an excited two-year-old…”We’re going on a trip? We’re going on a trip! Yay!” Then I’m like, “NO! You were not invited!” She normally cooperates for the first day or two but without fail, she decides that she want to show up for work and enjoy the trip too. Now, she has gotten the best of me a few times, but I learned to be prepared for her to show up when I’m attending a major outing.
A few years ago, my coworkers, at the time, and I headed off to Jamaica for our supervisor’s wedding. Since I knew this was going to entail five days of bikini-wearing, I packed accordingly. Let’s face it…no one wants to be shark bait. I’m sure my girlfriends didn’t want to be hanging out in the ocean like a three-piece and a biscuit with RED BEANS and rice! LOL! What? A little too dramatic? Well, you know what I mean. I made sure I had all of my necessary supplies, if I needed them, during our trip.
Who wants to take time away from having fun to hunt down tampons? Luckily, I don’t have that problem with the Tampax Pocket Pearl Tampons. I can literally grab a handful and throw them in my bag. The packaging is so cute and discreet that no one even notices that I have tampons mixed in with my other essentials.
If I’m going away for a quick trip or just headed out for a girls’ night and I’m carrying a large bag or purse, I pack everything in my fave makeup bag and go. In my bag, you will find a host of items. I always carry extra hair ties and bobby pins just in case my hair decides to puff up on me. There is nothing cute about turning into Mufasa…you know my hair is a coppery brown, so you can imagine. Not cute!
I also carry toothpaste, a travel toothbrush, mouthwash, gum, and flossers. I seriously have travel packs of flossers everywhere. I’m a little self-conscious about having things stuck in my teeth while I’m thinking I’m all cute. Embarrassing!
Other goodies that I carry with me include body wipes, deodorant, ibuprofen, lip balm, and sunscreen. Oh! Let me not forget about my travel container of setting powder and a retractable makeup brush to fight off being shiny! What? Don’t judge me! LOL!
When I’m out with the girls, I have it all covered, so we don’t have to stop having fun! I would rather have everything and not need it, versus needing it but not having it with me.
Tampax Pocket Pearl makes it easy for me to keep the fun going without worrying about my period making an unwanted appearance. The next time you head to your favorite store, stop by the ladies’ aisle and grab a box to add to your girls’ night stash.
