It’s okay to not be OK…

I came across a post on Sunday which resonated deeply within me.

A post that could’ve been written more or less by myself. So much so that my original post (which I’d deleted)  has now been re-written with a dedication to Aleena from Mummy Mama Mum for encouraging me to publish this. Thank you! 

For me, if it’s not admitting it then it’s accepting it that’s the problem…
Telling myself that sometimes I’m not OK is a struggle. Like a never-ending battle.

Thinking about summer; sunshine, ice creams and tan lines come to mind. These are the good memories. The not so good ones include over-crowding sweaty bodies on the tube, humid nights, dehydration and sunburnt skin. In London, it is seriously hard to stay as fresh as a daisy in summer but thanks to a few good products out there, it is definitely possible.

Now that it’s October the weather is much cooler and I don’t have to worry about sweaty bodies unless I’m heading to the gym. After a good workout, I am usually red-faced and dripping with sweat. I don’t mind – to me, it means I’ve actually done something. I always make sure I carry with me the essentials; deodorant for the underarms, a flannel to wipe of all that sweat and a bottle of water to rehydrate. As I live around the corner from the gym, I don’t bother to use their showers so it’s just a matter of quickly freshening myself up then heading home to get on with my mummy duties.

When the folks at Canesten asked if I wanted to try out their new intimate health products, I was very happy to. One of the things I lacked from my gym bag essentials was feminine hygiene wipes . These wipes aren’t just great for when it’s that time of the month, it’s actually a great item to have in your bag at all the times because then you can freshen up whenever you feel like it i.e. leaving straight from work to a party or in my case, after a sweaty workout. I received a few Canesfresh feminine hygiene products; an intimate gel wash, a mousse feminine wash and a pack of handy, travel-sized wipes. I was also given a lovely Polaroid instant camera to document my fun days out. 🙂 Continue reading “Review: Staying fresh on the go with Canesfresh + Polaroid Camera Giveaway!”
