Tried It: Review of FLEX Menstrual Discs

What is FLEX? FLEX is an feminine hygiene product — a "menstrual disc" — that is a disposable, leak-free alternative to tampons and pads.

According to the website, FLEX can be worn for up to 12 hours straight, is virtually undetectable to the person using it, hypoallergenic, and made without any toxins. In case those...

How to Find Your Style

I never had style, especially growing up. I constantly misinterpreted "style" and "fashion" as synonymous but I learned as I grew older that they weren't. A sense of fashion is easy -- anyone can acquire it. All it entails is keeping up with the latest trends and perpetually updating your wardrobe. But style? I'm not sure that can be taught. Style is timeless, seemingly effortless, and much more difficult to upkeep. Style is classic.   What's your style? Do you know? I can detail many of my...
