Afternoon Tea (NM) - My realistic period routine

If you have been here a while you will know I love a good old period chat! I thought today I would write a little realistic routine of how my day usually goes when I'm on my period: none of this all singing, all dancing routines complete with eating salad, going on a run and doing yoga.
This is the most amazing raspberry lemonade I have ever had! 
Periods are horrible but they're going to happen to all of us girls, each and every month. They hurt, they make you grumpy and worst of all they actually make you feel ill.

For all you younger readers who have yet to have started their period I thought I would do a little realistic routine so you know what to expect. Its nothing like these YouTube period routines where they do yoga and eat fruit all day... far from it! All my older readers who know the struggles of periods I thought this would be something you can relate too.

It's a struggle to get out of bed and on the days I don't have too, so the weekend, I tend to stay curled up in bed all day feeling sorry for myself. Most days though I have to get out of bed, I have uni. Those days I'm bitter and grumpy because I've been made to leave my nice, cosy bed and put on actual clothes and by clothes I mean leggings or joggers.

Speaking of, leggings and joggers are your best friend for periods! Periods bloat you and jeans are just so damn itchy and uncomfortable and will quite frankly piss you off so I always opt for leggings and joggers on the days that I have to get out of my pyjamas.

Not only will jeans piss you off but every single thing will also! I even begin to get annoyed that everything is annoying me... There is just no winning when mother nature strikes. Your boyfriend or girlfriend? Bless their little heart will probably do everything they can to make you smile but it will just make you angry and annoyed because 'they're treating you like a child'. Your best friend? They will probably just be brutally honest with you because you're being a bitch and trust me that really wont help...

As much as your loved ones will really piss you off and just generally get on your nerves you will be needy and want attention and cuddles and basically just be a big baby. I'm lucky enough where all the people close to me understand that I'm trying my hardest not to take it out on them but I'm just a moody mess.

Much Love,
