#UnderAwareness + Saying Goodbye To The Stigma

Thank you to Depend for sponsoring today’s post about the #underwareness movement. 


A while back- I wrote a post about dropping my pants for the #underawareness movement and Depends is BACK with this social campaign to spread awareness about bladder leakage and end the stigma. I have shared my personal struggle with bladder leakage on this blog before and I was so nervous about sharing... but the truth in the matter is that I'm not alone. 51 million women experience bladder leakage and almost EVERY person I've met with a spinal cord injury has lost some (most of the time ALL) control over their bladder.

When you think of bladder leakage, what comes to your mind? I bet you think of old people in the nursing home but you're wrong. Bladder leakage can happen to anyone and most people who experience leakage are in their 20s! As someone who has a disability, I can totally vouch for this. I never knew that being injured COULD mean I would experience something along the lines of bladder leakage. This is a daily struggle for me and I'm thankful that Depends has this campaign going on.


The thing with bladder leakage is that is can be embarrassing and it's totally inconvenient but Depends has made it easier with their Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs. They are moderate-absorbency and they are thin for comfort. They come in two different colors- black and beige and they look and FEEL just like real underwear. These make life with bladder leakage just a bit easier to handle and you can grab a FREE SAMPLE right now so you can try them out for yourself! I know people of all ages who have struggles with leakage and upon talking to them, you realize how common it really is.


If you are struggling with bladder leakage and feel comfortable sharing your story, I would love to hear it! Make sure you check out the #underawareness to find out how you can help end the stigma and check out the Depends page to grab a FREE sample!

Today I'm sharing the video about my most recent beauty favorites. My goal is to try and get these up EVERY MONTH for 2015. I haven't been buying as much because I've been on a no buy but I do have some things I've love this month and wanted to share!
also: I'm going to be entering the NYX FACE AWARDS and will be needing your help. Once I upload, I'll post here and let you know how you can vote. Anyone help entering? I'd love to see your looks!

F U T U R E

Since I took a super long break from blogging, I wanted to pop in an give some updates on how life has been going. I think the best kinds of posts are the more personal ones but I do feel a bit rusty sitting here trying to write a decent post, so please excuse this if it's total crap.

 After getting my license back in January I was so excited to get a job. I figured everything would go pretty fast and I would be driving by now... but I was wrong. Due to the fact that I'm having help with the hand controls, I have to go through a list of things in order to get a car modified for me. I have to depend on others and it's a financial thing, so I've had to push it off until I can afford it. This has caused me to put off getting a job and honestly, I was just feeling really crappy about myself.  I started to not feel like I was going any where in life and I felt that I wasn't really putting effort into the things I loved and that was causing me to not be happy with things I was putting out into the world (this blog, YouTube, photography, etc) and I was just really upset about everything. So I made the choice to go back to school.
