We’re all friends here right (I’m just going to imagine everyone is giving me a virtual head nod)? Because right about now things are going to get real here on “Weekends With Winter”. Today I’m going to talk about the dreaded confidence killer that many women (guys you may want to scroll down and look at the pretty pictures now) experience during that time of the month. I’ve been guilty of it- the not feeling quite myself , constantly going to the bathroom to check for leakage, feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin I’d rather hide away in the house until those 3-5 days pass. Well imagine feeling all of that discomfort and factor in a planned trip to Palm Springs with your boyfriend, your girlfriends and some of their boyfriends and you’ve got what I went through this past Labor Day weekend. I mean who plans to go to one of the hottest places in the country (I’m talking 110-120 degrees ya’ll) in the middle of their period in the summer time? THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE! However hiding was not an option, like Beyonce sings “I’m a grown woman”. So what do I do? Do I allow my confidence to be shot by something that happens naturally to practically every woman in the world? Or do I put my big girl panties on (figuratively and literally) and find a solution? Well being the grown woman I am ( besides there were no refunds this late in the game) I chose the ladder.
So now I’ve decided to go out of town, on my period, to a place where I’ll likely spend the majority of my time in skimpy clothes, what the heck do I do? Well I’m glad you asked that question because luckily for this girl and other girls in a similar situation, there IS an answer to our dilemma! And that answer lies in the New U by Kotex Ultra Thin Pads with 3D Capture Core®. With it’s one-of-a-kind center that locks away wetness to help stop leaks, we can all feel more confident when it’s that time of the month. U by Kotex® are also now available in Cleanwear® pads, AllNighter® pads and Security pads! So that pretty much means you can be self assured on your period no matter what plans you may have, and with all of this cool protection, your big girl panties don’t even have to come out of their hiding place 😉

Now you know I can’t leave my Weekender’s hanging, I took some pics of my fabulous weekend getaway to Palm Springs to share with you. My friends and I rented this really cool house and spent the whole weekend relaxing by the pool, eating and truly just enjoying each other’s company. I didn’t leave the house one time the whole weekend it was that fun! Here are some pics of my amazing vacation…
The house was perfect! The 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was the perfect size for our group. I also loved the open concept feel of the home. It made socializing from every room that much easier without feeling like we were sitting on top of one another.
We pretty much spent the entire weekend relaxing. We all took turns making breakfast, lunch and dinner and being the charcuterie lover that I am I made a snack of salami, turkey and assorted chesses for everyone . We also had a fried chicken contest between some of the guys for dinner one night, however both were so good we couldn’t pick a winner.
It truly is easy to have a fab weekend when you have such fab friends to enjoy it with! I don’t think we spent much time out of the pool the whole time.
How did you guys spend your Labor Day weekend? Ladies, what makes you feel confident when you need a little boost to your self esteem? I love hearing from you guys so shoot me a line. Until next time as always, keep the party going!
