Going on a big summer trip? Planning a pool party? Want to wear those new white jeans? Sometimes your menstrual cycle can get in the way, especially when you lead an active life. Luckily, The Monthly Gift can help you out with their app, which monitors ovulation and menstrual cycle patterns, and their monthly subscription that delivers you the best feminine products just before your period arrives.


Summer is the perfect time to try new trends, and we have the perfect one for you. Brappz is a personalized, multi-use accessory that is perfect for any collegiette.

With hot, humid weather approaching, staying hydrated is key to have a healthy summer. CamelBak's new Forge Divide Travel Mug is the perfect for staying hydrated on-the-go, while staying stylish at the same time. 


Summer means shorts, skirts, and lots of shaving in this hot weather. Pure Silk has the best products for your most difficult shaving needs. Its shaving cream's moisturizing formula softens and nourishes your skin as you shave, and also protects you from any nicks or cuts, leaving your skin silky smooth just in time for summer. 


Planning on doing some traveling this summer, but want to get the most for your money?
