It takes courage to speak up and normalize something that's been considered a taboo subject for so long. .
But why are periods so taboo to talk about?! It's an amazing part of our bodies that could allow us to grow a human being! That's pretty epic! Whether you use that ability or not is beside the point.
.
Your body is amazing and you are amazing and should be celebrated, not shamed. There's nothing "dirty" about menstruation.

We want to start a photo challenge! Where has your cup or cloth been with you? Take a picture of your RUMP wherever you are. (I'll be doing this tomorrow!) I will also sport my"Reusable Crew" Period T-shirts with pride. Tag #reusablecrew so we can see yours!

Day 11 of my cycle and:⠀

☾ Connection to everyone and the external world is easy and a total joy.⠀
☾ My body is craving freshness, colourful foods and I’m lighter on my feet.⠀
☾It’s feeling aligned and effortless to take action on the inspiration gathered during the bleed.⠀
☾ My extroversion is real, late next week it’ll likely begin to fade away.⠀
☾ Less sleep yet waking up energised.⠀
☾ Feeling accomplished after doing so much admin and accounting for my biz this week (in two weeks that would be my least favourite thing.⠀
☾ I’m noticing my inner ‘maiden’ (the archetype of this phase) making decisions purely around what feels EXCITING and full of potential.⠀
☾ Play takes priority.⠀
☾ Detail driven.  Left brain is activated and task related work feels easy (hallelujah!).⠀


And you?  What day of your cycle are you on?  What are your feels?⠀

When I was in 7th grade, our school had taken us to Kashmir for a trip. The trip had been quite eventful because the unrest in the valley had just started to build up while we were there. We would hear of some terrorist attacks or bomb blasts in neighbouring areas. Of course as young kids we were far more excited than worried about these incidents while our parents back home were going crazy calling us on the hotel landline (Yes, it was the year 1988 and no mobiles) to check on us and incessantly question our teachers about our safety.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And among all that craziness I still remember that day very clearly, like it was yesterday. We had been getting ready to leave the hotel to visit the famous Nishat Bagh and I had gone to the loo just before we got on the bus and thats when I had seen those red spots. I remember that I had come out of the loo pretty excited. I was sharing the room with my best friend and her older sister and I had announced with much enthusiasm that I had finally got my periods. They had gotten their periods before me and I too wanted to be just like them (peer pressure, I guess). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I remember my friend’s sister had gotten a little worried about me not knowing what to do or how to use a pad. Luckily for me my doctor mom had already told me about periods long ago (when I was pretty young actually) and I was well prepared with those extremely uncomfortable pads in my suitcase (you millennials will never know how horrible those beltwala pads 🙈used to be).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Though I wasn’t prepared about one thing - you see my mom had told me about periods when I was pretty young and because she probably didn’t wanna scare me as a child, she had mentioned that I would get my periods once every 3 months or so. But when I got to know from my friends that I would get them every month, I had felt a little cheated 😔
And yes my #MyFirstPeriod happened on my first and last trip to Kashmir, the homeland of my ancestors. -Ruchita Dar Shah, 42. CEO & Founder of First Moms Club

🔼 This 🙌🏻💕 - "In passing this motion today, Dublin City Council has accepted that we have a responsibility to break down the stigma around periods and tackling period poverty." A survey by @plan_ireland Ireland suggested that more than 50% of Irish girls aged 12-19 have experienced issues around the affordability of sanitary products.
While providing free sanitary products in Dublin City Councils buildings is a really progressive step, I hope that the Government will follow Scotland's lead and take action in the upcoming budget to provide free sanitary products in all schools and colleges.” What’s your take should femcare products be provided for free! I may be bias ☺️ but I believe basic hygiene products for all in public spaces should be the norm and status quo!!!! Yessss via la vulva 😂

🙎 MENSTRUAR 🙎
9 letras y miles de maneras de vivirla, sentirla, ocultarla... Así empiezo el post de hoy.
🙊¿Sabéis que en Afganistán está prohibido hablar de la regla?.
👶 ¿Conoces la #menarquianeonatal? Bebés que tras nacer tienen un breve periodo. 😢 ¿Te imaginas que la regla en vez de salir por la vagina y vulva te saliera por otros orificios de tu cuerpo como los lagrimales, las orejas o la nariz?
Y además me he puesto a investigar por qué cuando menstruamos hacemos más 💩. Cuando me pongo modo investigadora me doy cuenta de cómo me gusta saber todas éstas cosas 😂. Ya podéis leerlo en #ArsEroticasblog y curiosear.
¡Que disfruten del día bellxs!

{NEW SEASONAL TREATS!] The first orange picture in the mini-magazine that is an Instagram grid means big things are coming...Tasty, cozy, fall things! We're so excited to launch two new treats next week, one which we want your feedback on + has a story to go with it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
First, let us introduce you to our Pumpkin and Chai Chocolate Chip Cashew cookies, here to support all your hormone dreams (check our website next week when we launch to learn how) with enough pumpkin to create a gooey inside and perfectly baked outside (+ delicious dark chocolate chips). Did we mention it's vegan?

Second, meet...well, that's the thing. We don't have a name because we want your vote. The truth is, the darker cookie featured in the picture was the donut hole of our founder, Devon's, dreams. It's apple spice leaves you feeling reminiscent of cider with the perfect amount of sweetness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when she was baking and testing the recipe, she realized she didn't have a donut hole mold and with the dough being perfectly moist, she didn't want to add more flour to make it easier to roll into a ball but also become more cakey. AND real life small business BTS, our photoshoot was set for the 13th with the amazing @poppiphotography, who is a MUCH desired and busy woman, so, instead of rescheduling, Devon made cookies, added a maple pecan glaze on top and called it a day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the question remains...to donut hole or not to donut hole? Survey says....? Let us know below and enter to win one of each of these treats on us. And a disclaimer: for anyone building something with their whole heart and soul, it can feel messy in the best of ways. Embrace it, and on the days where that feels excruciatingly hard (ohh, we've been there!!), you're not alone and we've got you. With cookies. and donuts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
HAPPY FALL, FRIENDS!

Sometimes, I forget how much of a negative impact stress can have on our bodies. I managed to postpone my period by nearly a week this month. Nice to see ya, Flo. Sorry about the mishaps! #Life #EndoSister #EndometriosisAwareness #PeriodPositivity #IssaMovement #PeriodPride #LiftingTheCurse #BadAss #BleedingBoss

It's a natural process that happens to half of the world, so why should we hide it? Wear your period loud and proud! #MythbusterMonday

#RBCFAVES: As you probably heard, the 2018 Women's U.S. Open was a huge game-changer. Naomi Osaka won as a 20 year old for her first ever grand-slam title against Serena Williams. However, her winning game included incidents between the umpire, Carlos Ramos, and Serena over a game penalty for using the word "thief." This game has sparked a massively important conversation about equal treatment of women and men in the game of tennis. 🤔🤔🤭 Read more of Serena's quotes on our story. She is fighting for women's equality. GO GIRL!!! 👏
