However glamorous a girl is or however glitzy their life might seem, we all share one ugly certainty.
Yuck, the thought of that time of the month makes me shiver.
But…unfortunately they are a fact of life and the only thing we can do is embrace and try and make the most of them!
I recently discovered Pink Parcel who are a company who have come up with a fantastic way to soften the blow and add a bit of sparkle to your monthly cycle. They are a bit like Glossybox or Birchbox in that it is a monthly box, delivered directly to your door…but with your period in mind!
The parcel arrives in a discreet box, filled with your choice of tampons or pads plus some surprise treats to make your monthly cycles feel less like a nuisance, and more like an excuse to be pampered. Pink Parcel makes those late night supermarket runs and bottom-of-the-handbag scrabbles a thing of the past, even labelling your products ‘for now’ and ‘for later’ to make sure you are more organised than ever.
I think the concept is fantastic, especially considering its price. I probably spend around £6 or £7 a month as it is on hygiene products, so for £9.95 plus postage this box is a bargain with all the treats included. This month had goodies such as tea, chocolate, moisturiser and energy boosting tabs…all the right things for a great ‘pick me up’!
I felt well and truly spoilt on the first evening I needed it…where I would usually be curled up feeling sorry for myself!

Get clicking and as their strapline says make your life ‘a little bit lovelier every month’.
