Does any girl really enjoy her time of the month? Probably not, and I'm right there with them. I feel like I am being held back from having impeccable style when I'm on my period for many reasons. Usually, all I want to wear are loose sweaters, leggings, and UGG boots so I can be comfortable and not risk ruining any of my favorite garments. But when I get that burst of energy and motivation to style up a cool look, my monthly flow holds me back from that. I don't wear a lot off white, but for some reason, I am always craving a good white pant or skirt during that time of the month. See my dilemma?

But Natalie, you're wearing white pants right now, and aren't you on your............? Wouldn't that be weird if y'all new my menstrual cycle as if I wrote posts differently during that time of the month? (WELL I GUESS YOU KNOW NOW. LOL) I recently started using The DivaCup, which has given me the freedom to be more like myself during my period. The DivaCup is a reusable, bell-shaped silicone menstrual cup that offers 12 hours of leak-free protection, which gives me confidence when I want to wear white while on my period! It's clean, comfortable, and so convenient to use since I don't have to remove or change it every couple of hours like the average pad or tampon. It doesn't matter whether I'm at the office all day, hitting a yoga class at lunch, or dancing at the club all night, The DivaCup has me covered and keeps my clothes clean! See why I feel more confident wearing white now? (Stay tuned for an all white look soon because I'm feeling ambitious!)

Another thing that I really love about The DivaCup is that you can reuse it. Not only does this save me from buying tampons and pads every month, but it also completely eliminates waste! I know many millennials who are conscious of their footprint and the effects of waste on our planet. Well, using The DivaCup is one way to cut back on the amount of trash you produce. The average cost of menstrual care per year is more than $150, but The DivaCup only costs $39.99, and most DivaCups have a lifespan of up to one year. So you can use the money you save from not having to purchase pads and tampons every month to treat yourself to something nice—because YOU DESERVE IT!

The DivaCup is SO easy to use. I recommend visiting the user guide, but here are some quick tips to get you started and to keep you from dreading your monthly flow with DivaCup: 
  • Read The DivaCup user guide 
  • Insert The DivaCup and make sure it's comfortable and secure!
  • Live carefree for up to 12 hours while The DivaCup works its magic.
  • Remove and empty The DivaCup at the end of the day. 
  • Clean the cup using the DivaWash, a special PH-balanced soap made specifically for The DivaCup.
  • At the end of your cycle, wash The DivaCup and store in it's cute little bag until your next period!

While you can find The DivaCup at many retailers, I picked mine up at Walgreens in the feminine care section. Check out The DivaCup store locator to find out where you can pick up your new best friend! Want to learn how to use The DivaCup?
