Holiday Travel Essentials

December 21, 2018

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. We won’t be traveling as a family for the holiday, but I may be scooting out to New York for New Years weekend to kick it with the homies. The few times that we have traveled during Christmas, I feel like my nerves were a complete wreck by the time we got where we were going.

You know, we have to get the kids stuff together, and our stuff together, and clean the house, and wrap presents,and fit said presents in the car. It’s so much to keep up with.

When traveling during the holidays, it is really hard to predict what will happen with delays, lost luggage etc. so as they say, stay ready so you don’t have to get ready. Whenever I travel, I always keep my essentials with me in a carry-on. I  include a change of clothing, something to read, my phone, laptop, chargers and any personal items I may need.

Personal items to include: deodorant, feminine hygiene, soap, lipstick, bobby pins, scrunchies, you know those things that can turn a situation with lost luggage into something that you can work with.

While I don’t experience bladder leaks, the reality is nearly 1 in 3 women do, and that number increases to 1 in 2 for African American women. If the possibility of holiday travel shenanigans isn’t a reason to keep the protection you need in reach, I don’t know what is. If you suffer from bladder leaks, Always Discreet offers extraordinary protection that you can barely feel, leaving you protected and comfortable as you go about doing all of the things, and traveling to all of the places.

Normalizing our body changes… hello 40, I see you, should be discussions women are having in the open, and in our private circles. Here are a few statistics on the reality of bladder leakage in women: of the 25 million adult Americans suffering from some form of urinary incontinence, 75-80% of those are women. In fact, 1 in 3 women have experienced bladder leaks. So, spoiler alert – a little leakage is something most women have or will experience at some point in their lives, but it doesn’t have to disrupt your fabulous life.

Always believes body changes are part of being a woman, and that as you move about in the activities you enjoy doing, you shouldn’t have to worry with having the proper protection that you are comfortable in.

You can pick up Always Discreet at Walgreens… and if online shopping is your thing you can purchase at Walgreens online.
