Christmas is Coming: Have You Got Your Wish List Ready?

…in order to get only what you wish for, and not what you don’t.

Christmas always means two things to me: a lot of excitement, but also a lot of frustration. It’s that time of the year the general common sense awkwardly says “buy a little crappy plastic something” instead of not buying anything at all because a) that person genuinely doesn’t need anything or b) you never took the time to mindfully listen to what that person likes and is interested in.

Menstrual cup

6 Reasons I Opted For A Menstrual Cup And Never Looked Back

Did you know that between the age of 14 and 50 women spend on average one-fifth of their lives having their period? How can we explain that humanity has had the time to create more than 7 iPhones but that women are still using the same feminine protection that they used to decades ago? Well, that’s the thing, we don’t anymore, thanks to the holy grail of menstrual protection: please welcome the menstrual cup (applause in the audience please, that one deserves the cheering worthy of a movie star).
