I've been quite sick for about a week now and being sick is no joke, especially on my birthday week. Thankfully, it's just nothing more than a flu or flu-like symptoms. I really don't know what it is but I've been coughing like crazy, had fever, achy bones, and cold. I tried not to take any medicine because medicine for cough and cold make me drowsy and the least I wanted to do is sleep because I had a lot of things to do.
I tried to be discreet about being sick on a few instances this week but by Thursday, during dinner with friends, they couldn't help but notice my hoarse voice (well I could barely talk at all!), my crazy coughing (thankfully they're not grossed out because I know how to cover my mouth, than you very much!), and I was all bundled up inside the restaurant.
Alas! By Thursday evening, my body finally gave up and I was even more sick on Friday. I couldn't be discreet anymore about it. I just couldn't go out period. I had to be in bed and just do a complete bed rest.
But I remember a few moments here and there when I have to be discreet about something. Not big of a deal really but more like just trying to cover up something that's not up to par.
My favorite way to be "fashionably discreet" is by wearing sunglasses, putting my hair up, and wearing bright red lipstick. Wearing a pair of sunglasses when not wearing any make-up and a bright red lipstick makes you still look chic. No one will be able to tell! And putting your hair up in a pony tail always does the trick when you're having a bad hair day!
And of course, there are other "periods" (pun intended) in a woman's life when she has to be discreet. No woman ever wants to be TMI when it comes to her "monthly" visitor. No woman wants that to be displayed in the form of stains on her skirt or a sign of big bulky sanitary napkin on her pants.
That's where O.B. Tampons come in. Imagine those date nights when you'd have to wear tight sexy pants and it's the time of the month?Ahhhh! What was life used to be before O.B. Tampons? It's almost impossible to be discreet about it, right? What I like about O.B. Tampons is that they have different types for different needs. Unlike the regular sanitary napkins, it's not one-size-fits-all. Because really, when it comes to that, there's no one-size-fits-all! You have to find the product that works for you. There are days when the flow is heavy and there are days when it's light and O.B. Tampons has the right product for that. Nothing is more fashionable during those icky days than being confident that what you're wearing has got you covered!
