hi! i'm raffela.

Hi, I'm a mental illness advocate and fierce promoter of self-love! I'm a university student, and I remember all of the horrible years of sitting in class and not knowing if my period leaked through my pants or not. Luckily, my period isn't as brutal anymore, but I still would love to help others who also majorly struggle with managing their periods. Let's reduce the unnecessary stigma, and help more people!

go-to period hack

CBD oil is my best friend when it comes to pain management! If Ibuprofen doesn't do the trick, CBD always saves the day!

know my flow

It's currently very unpredictable since getting my IUD, so it can come when I'm least expecting it! Thankfully, it's not as heavy as it used to be!

my fave styles:

hi-waist

Because I have a belly and I love how they hug my curves.

boyshort

Something I would have LOVED as a teenager, as it would have reduced my period anxiety a lot.

training shorts

I've never seen a product like that- and it must be a lifesaver for so many athletic people (and gym class).
