'A diva is a female version of a hustler' - from Queen B herself. (Beyonce) Now I'll have that song stuck in my head.
I asked a few girl friends what 'diva' meant, and here are their answers:
Eva: A diva is a queen.
Dianna: A diva is someone who lives elegantly/classy. Someone who lives in opulence.
Christi: High maintenance.
Holly: a diva is someone who can't be bothered with common/ordinary things. She needs bigger and better.
I'm pretty sure they all were thinking about me when answering, well maybe not Christi! Just kidding! We all have an inner Diva, right? This blog is for the ladies haha. Sorry men, come back another day ;) or check out my other blog post.
So heard about The Diva Cup? Bigger and better than tampons; lives elegantly/classy - non- ick alternative to feminine hygiene product; For Queens :) ; not high maintenance :)
Let's talk about it.
I always call my period my monthly gift. My friend pointed out that she's glad someone thinks it's a gift. haha It is, but yes sometimes...you just want to punch someone in the face while eating ice cream and listening to Taylor Swift. okay, kidding! One thing that can help is The Diva Cup. I've used it for three menstrual cycles, and I love it.
So a friend introduced me to The Diva Cup (they now sell at Target! Click here for store finder or you can buy it on their website). My first experience was very awkward. Just as awkward as writing a blog post about periods. Kidding! It went in easy (you just follow the instructions it came with), fold, insert, twist. The hard part was getting it out. I guess I didn't have it as low as it should have been, and I had a OMGosh moment. It ran though my head, what the heck! What am I suppose to do...am I going to have to ask someone for help? and WHO??!?! Don't worry, I got it! Phew. After that, I wanted to give up, but I didn't have tampons, so YOLO again. The next time, it was easy. Then the time after that, easy. The next month, I got it! I'm glad I didn't give up after the first try. I won't be turning back. I'm switching to The Diva Cup! Plus, long hiking trips planned? Yes, I can wear The Diva Cup for up to 12 hours!
When on your period, how many times have you thought, did it go through my tampon? Or how many times did it go through? Embarrassing, but it's happen to all of us. With The Diva Cup, I don't have to worry about that at all. Sleeping over at a friends house? Diva Cup. Life changing.
Okay, so what awkward questions do you have for me about it? I'm an open book. It's funny how my friend just told me about it randomly. It's great to have friends you can talk to about anything! You can also check out their website for questions and answers:

Good saying, but we all like to feel beautiful on the outside too.
I recently lost 30 pounds due to divorce, I don't suggest that diet, but I am now healthy and feel great. I've always been plain and simple with my looks. Just eyeliner. I literally get ready for work in fifteen minutes or less everyday. Since everything, I've tried new things, just like the saying I like to use, 'YOLO, but in a Godly way.' I bought makeup, hair accessories, stuff I have no clue how to put on or use, etc!! One being an epilator. Heard of it? I haven't until a few weeks ago when a good friend told me about it. Two words, life changer. Seriously.
***Before and after, less than a year apart.
I bought an epilator at my local drug store, Walgreens. I bought the Remington brand because it was the only brand they had, and I knew of the brand because of their amazing hair products (curling irons, hair dryers, etc).
When I turned on the epilator, it scared me. I even snapped (snapchat - kristi37) my friend and told her what is she thinking. Is this a torture device? I was worried about the pain and pinching of my skin. I read the directions, and then just went for it! YOLO!!
Was not bad at all! Yes, the first contact was a scare, but after a little, you get use to it. The more you use it, the less you can feel the epilation. Towards the end of my first use, I ended up liking the feeling. Weird, I know. I started with my underarms, and then my legs.
My hair has not grown back and it's been a couple of weeks. This is great! I'm on vacation and don't have to worry about packing a razor, or shaving cream, don't have to pack the Remington Epilator either! On the box it says "leaving you smooth and silky for up to 6 weeks." Another plus, since it plucked my hair, it will grow back thinner the more times you use it!
I've always been paranoid about underarm hair. Just going a day or two can have a 'shadow,' so the Remington Epilator has helped with my insecurities - sounds hardcore, but I was insecure with pictures, wearing short sleeve shirts, etc. Also, with my new love for outdoor adventures, I don't have to worry about shaving during my camping/backpacking trips. No more checking my underarms or having to wear leggings during those, 'did I shave my legs recently?,' days!
Let me know if you have an epilator! How was/is your experience?
