Happy Monday Ladies! This past weekend I decided to change my bra game with some new designs from Bonds Australia .The bra designs are comfortable, fitting, and relaxing for petite woman like myself. I don't have to worry about loose straps and uncomfortable underlying wired bras. On top of their great selection they've design some bras with a smooth open back that is easy to wear with any tank top. 

As woman, it's important for me to know that wearing a correctly fitted bra may help improve my posture, prevent pain and discomfort. According to Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, woman will wear up to six different bra sizes due to fluctuation of body change. So, it's important to check your bra size annually and make necessary changes. 

Remember bras and styles vary on the preference for each individual, but make sure when trying out new bras to wear them for at least five minutes to asses fitting, mobility and comfort. Please don't make it a habit to buy a bra just because it's pretty, instead meet the needs to support your beautiful breast. And if the bra if chic and fashionable then it's Win Win! 

Bonds Australia has a wide extensive selection of colors from purple to black and although I wanted to buy them all, I started with a simple trio with gray, brown and white.

3 Fruits to Eat During Your Menstruation

No comments

Many woman have uncomfortable symptoms during their menstruation cycle. And what we may not realize is that the foods we eat before, during and after can have a huge effect on your period health.  Today, I will share 3 simple fruits you should have in handy during your menstruation phase.

First, is the mini watermelon. One of the best remedies at times to lessen cramps is to eat water based fruits to lessen the period cramps. Watermelon can provide hydration, prevent bloating, and increase blood flow which is good for our reproductive region.

Second, are the blueberries. Blueberries can help fight off the uterus ninjas because they have high antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that can help balance out the hormonal changes during your cycle. Plus they are believed to help with low estrogen levels.

Third, are the blackberries. They are a Summer staple, but are packed in vitamin c, fiber, and high in manganese. Blackberries can reduce cramps, alleviate physical PMS problems and clot excessive bleeding.

Overall these sweet fruits can help keep your menstruation cycle healthy, curb sugar cravings without eating a lot of refined sugars and help replenish vitamins and minerals back into your body.

(Quick Tip: If you ever get the 2 for $5 dollar fruit deals, and are concern about possibly not consuming all of your fruit. You can always freeze your fruit.)
