Every girl, including Sassi, needs a bit of pampering every now and then, so www.impromptu.com.au and Hachette Australia has put together a fabulous Period Pick-Me-Up Pack to give away to one lucky reader.
The pack, worth more than $145, includes Moxie tampons, a Peter Alexander hot water bottle, slipper socks, Lindt chocolate, a size 10 turquoise Mooks singlet top (valued at $49.95), and two books â€“ Nora Roberts\’ latest romance, Black Hills, and My Little Red Book (including stories from women of all ages, from all over the world, about their first periods). Girlie fun!
The drill on â€˜impromptu\’? Well, it allows you to put an end to (ahem) impromptu shopping trips for tampons. I mean, how many times have you felt those telltale signs andÂ realised you have no tampons or pads?
Melbourne businesswoman Paula Rodgers set up the serviceÂ company in 2007, after a girl’s weekend away, where the subject of being caught outÂ came up.
In her first blog last October, Rodgers described howÂ she and her gal pals scrambled for tampons and pads each month: “Frantically searching through handbags and drawers, cursingÂ ourselves because getting our period today was hardly aÂ surprise. After 15+ years in our late 20s and early 30s, you\’d think we would have learnt by now!”
But they hadn\’t. So the seed was sown in Rodgers\’ mind and Impromptu wasÂ launched soon afterwards.Â Impromptu offers women a reliable and convenient online service, from which they can buy Vixen condoms, Moxie and Cottons tampons, pads and liners, and Comforts incontinenceÂ Â products – made by Australian-owned companies – all from the anonymous comfort of their own home.
Customers in Australia and New Zealand can choose to purchaseÂ all offered products as needed or use Impromptu’s personalised subscription service to order tampons, pads andÂ liners, delivered to their individual schedule. So, noÂ more hunting through your handbag or drawers for tampons leftÂ over from your last period! For more on impromptu, visit www.impromptu.com.au.
Also treading into the territory of “that time of the month” is the cute tome, My Little Red Book, edited by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff. It includes cringe-worthy memories of ruby red blotches on school uniforms, blocked loos and the slow dawning horror of the sanitary towel.Â Kauder Nalebuff is a recent high school graduate herself, so her first time is not exactly a distant memory! It\’s from Hachette Australia and is a guaranteed page-turner.
To win the Pamper Pack, just comment below by telling me how you pamper yourself at that time of the month.
