Ah, summer.... a season where we are always on the go and enjoy random getaways with our loved ones.  One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to take random long weekends and head to a lake, beach, or nature trail so I can spend some time outside and forget all the responsiblities I have in life. Even though these trips may seem random, I am a planner at heart so I always pack everything I know I could need.  Now, when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING.  I think of everything that could happen like suddenly needing a band-aid for a cut or dental floss after a big meal. 

You can never be too prepared for life's surprises and today I'm going to show you how to make an emergency kit for something that we can pretty much all relate to. 

Being a woman is so lovely because it comes with a variety of surprises that can happen at any moment.  Say you are sitting by the lake with your girlfriends and you are cracking up at each other's jokes and trips down memory lane.  Suddenly you laugh too hard and you pee yourself a little bit. Yeah, joke's on you now! 

 Or maybe you're on a camping trip just minding your own business when your period decides to come to town and join you.   So much for needing an invitation I guess. 

Yep, these sure make for fun times don't they? Well, I have great news!  I no longer let these moments control my life.  Instead, I take control of them because like I said earlier, I am ALWAYS prepared.  I never leave home without Carefree® liners from Target and you shouldn't either, because they let you be free to be you. 

So without further ado - follow along to make your own Feminine Hygiene Emergency Kit.

I keep my kit in a little pouch.  You can use whatever you can find, even a plastic baggie if it fits all your items. 

Inside my emergency kit you will find:

Because sometimes you just need to freshen up, wipes are a must have in any emergency kit.  You never know where you will be when something surprises you and you can't count on being able to find wipes at a camp site, pool, or hiking trail restroom so make sure you bring your own!

Plastic Baggie
I mean you need somewhere to keep any soiled garments you may have, right?

Fresh Undies
The last thing you want is to not have a fresh clean pair waiting for you so I always keep a pair folded up in my emergency kit! Trust me, you'll be glad you did!

Carefree® Acti-fresh® Thin
They may be thin but they are very absorbent and do a great job of keeping you fresh, confident, and comfortable so you can go on enjoying your day.  They even have an 8-hour odor control system which definitely gives an extra boost of confidence for me to focus on making memories instead of being self-conscious.  These definitely stay in place but are still able to move with you so if you're in for an active weekend, have no fear!

Sometimes, you just need something small with a great adhesive that allows you to wear what you want and not have to change your outfit based on your feminine needs.  That's why I love the Carefree® Thong liner.  It has stay-put wings that keep it in place and is designed specifically for your skimpiest, sexiest undies.  The cover allows up to 2x more air flow vs. Carefree® Original so you have plenty of breathing room, so to speak.  It has an end-to-end adhesive which prevents bunching and allows you to move however you want.  Dancing the night away? Please continue....

You can find these Carefree® items in the personal care aisle at Target.  While you're there you can pick up everything else you may need for your kit! And be sure to check out the Cartwheel offer for 10% off Carefree® Liners from June 27th through August 7th!
