October 5, 2017

 

We have all been there! At one point or another, your period has gone rogue and an awkward period story is born. You know what I'm talking about– you weren't expecting it to show for another few days but all of a sudden your favorite jeans are ruined right in front your crush, or your thought it was over, but BAM it came back with a vengeance when you thought it was safe to go to your friend’s sleepover. How do you salvage the situation? Run to the nearest restroom? Tied your cardigan around your waist or just simply go home?
