A White Party Can't Be Left to Chance: U by Kotex (Sponsored)

It is party time in Texas y'all! 
The city: Dallas, Texas at the end of June. Hotest day of the year, 106 degrees. 
The Party: A White Party: Guests are encouraged to dress to impress in all white
The Location: Downtown Dallas, outdoors, porta potties only. 

As I was getting ready in the days leading up to the party, I was crossing things off my list, easy, breezy, airy and fabulous white dress (check) sparkly shoes (check) nude colored undergarments (check and check) PERIOD (check).

I don't know about you guys but I stress and stress and stress about my period. I'm not someone that gets grouchy during my time of the month, but my stress levels go through the roof. 

Will there be bathrooms where I am going? 
How long until I will be able to change my tampon?
How can I get to the bathroom with my tampon without being completely obvious (to all the boys) that I'm on my period?

Insert U by Kotex here! (pun intended)
and for the record, go ahead and intend any more super puns I make from here on out. 
Two things I loved about these Tampons.
1. They kept me protected the entire party. I was on day 3 of my period for the white party. That day can be so unpredictable. These were so absorbant, I didn't even need to worry about my covert plan of attack on B-lining to the nearest porta potty. 
2. They are TINY in size! I could stash one in my hand and no one would know I was carrying a tampon. The U by Kotex would go from compact to full-sized protection in one easy move. When it clicks, it's ready to insert. Perfect for when you want to carry a spare in your pocket.

The party was so much fun. We sat down to dinner and drinks and good conversation for the first couple of hours, then danced the entire last hour and I was comfortable with zero stress! 
You can even request a free sample to try out U by Kotex for yourself! Check out their facebook and twitter pages for even more special offers! 
I would say to tweet them some funny PMS stories, but PMS stories are never funny, period. 

Oh and P.M.S - I'll have more pictures from the white party and apartment hunting for you tomorrow! 

I wrote this review while participating in a content series through Clever Girls Collective on behalf of U by Kotex, and received products to facilitate my post and compensation for my time to participate.

  1. Girl... you are one brave soul for wearing white during that time of the month! But I'm a HUGE fan of these tampons too. Aren't they amazing? Seriously won't buy anything else!

  2. YAY! I made my first blog appearance, on a blog post about periods...sweet.

  3. I am so glad that I no longer have to worry about tampons but I do remember the days when I needed to carry then in a pocket or small bag and hoped no one knew or noticed

  4. These days are gone for me and I couldn't be happier. Playing God with BC is just about the best thing ever.

  5. Your Photoshop Tutorials is are using that is very useful and helpful...
