Did you guys enjoy the quick stop tour last week?!

Removing the Veil On Aunt Flo

Monthly visitor, or like the one we went for, Aunt Flo, so many cryptic words to describe the same process- most of us go through it and yet it’s so hush hush. Even in the commercials for feminine hygiene products, they can’t even show it in a realistic way. Women with massive grins on their…
