My Bag

hi! i'm karissa.

@thegivingmom

I am a mother of two who loves all things vintage and practicing yoga with my children. I have tried every period product out there and nothing beats Thinx! I love being able to just put on a pair and get on with my day.

where am i?

Coos Bay, OR

go-to period hack

Hot baths with Epsom salts, CBD oil and cat snuggles get me through each month.

know my flow

My cycle is 28 days long unless I have a vacation or party to attend in which case it will be shorter or longer just to coincide with my plans! I can tell when it starts just by the wretched lower back pain that comes before my cramps kick in. My cramps are pretty intense and make me want to curl up in a ball and stay in bed. My flow is super heavy for about two days and then slowly gets lighter for the following few days. I crave all my comfort foods and surroundings and tend to be weepy about everything. I love to just stay in and watch I Love Lucy with my little girl! Having special underwear for this time of the month, extra self love and pampering gives me something to actually look forward to!

my fave styles:

super hiphugger

The super hiphuggers are my go-to for overnight protection or my heavy flow days.

air bikini

I opt for the air bikini if it's hot out or I'm practicing yoga (so sleek even underneath yoga leggings)!

hi-waist

My all time favorites are the hi-waist, they are so cute (and cover up my tiger stripes)! I'll just wear those around the house when I'm too exhausted and crampy to even get dressed, I just love the new cleo print too!!!!
