A couple years ago it occurred to me that Mr. P&P was likely mighty sick of seeing me decked out in faded pjs with holes in them. Simultaneously it occurred to me that I spend 95% of my time at home in comfies. Since I’m a real homebody that accounts for a lot of my time in general. Surely it would make sense to invest a bit more in the lounge wear capsule section of my wardrobe? I’ve since curated a small collection of comfortable and cute pieces to wear while lounging at home and I haven’t looked back. Let’s take a look at what some of what I’ve got, shall we?
Today’s post is a Kuwalla Tee review. For years and years I was on the hunt for the perfect tee shirt. I had a vague list of qualities in mind including soft, thick, dryer friendly, hitting at the top of the hip, and made with natural fibers. I spent a fair chunk of change on a lot of almosts. It seems like such a basic thing, but a good tee shirt is a real workhorse and a solid wardrobe basic.
Today I want to talk about something a little different from my usual content – periods. Yup. Specifically, a Knix period underwear review.
I learned all about how toxic pads and tampons are many years ago. I’m not going to go into great detail about that because Google. Trust me when I say though that they are bad news. Bad news for your body and bad news for the environment. For those reasons I decided to make my periods waste free.
For about 15 years I’ve been using the same set of washable pads and I love them. I bought them on eBay for about $20. They are made of fleece and they have snaps on the wings to hold them in place. My wallet is happy, my body is happy and the planet is happy.
I’ve also used the Diva Cup for many years.
Knix period underwear review
Enter Knix. I’ve now rounded out my collection with period underwear. Genius. I invested in five pairs (full disclaimer – I ordered from the Teen section because it was a bit cheaper) and I’m so glad that I did.
“Find yourself asking, “how do period panties work?” Well, a super-absorbent pad with leak resistant backing is built into our seamless underwear. But its so thin, you won’t even notice it’s there.”
I find that I can wear a pair all day with no problems. If you have a heavier flow I still think that the underwear (I just can’t with the word panties, ugh) are a good investment because they provide back up for leaks. You can wear them over night as well. I think we’ve all probably wrecked some pjs over the years which is just the worst. No more friends, no more.
The underwear are machine washable. I just throw mine in with the rest of my laundry, wash in cold water and hang to dry. Simple pimple. They come individually packaged in reusable pouches which are super slim and great for stashing in your purse. Best of all? They look like normal underwear. Knix is the next best thing to not having your period.
I like to shop. I live in the Yukon. These two things are not particularly compatible. Online shopping is the best thing to ever happen to me and I’ve been practicing for about 15 years. Lucky for you because I’m here to share some of the best tips (specifically eBay tips) of the trade!
