Pretty Clever Pants -for life little leaks #review

In what seems to be turning into a small series about how to tackle life little leaks today I am going to tell you about some very clever pants which look jus like normal knickers but can protect you from bladder, post maternity or period leakage.

I first came across  Pretty Clever Pants when they were introduced by TV presenter Carol Smillie at Britmums a couple of years ago.

She told us she and tennis star Annabel Croft came up with the idea with the aim of helping teenagers with heavy periods. They were amazed to discover that people started using them for mild incontinence too.

Now they market the pants to the 5 million women across the UK who suffer from stress incontinence along with those who worry about leakage during periods and post maternity as a back up in case sanitary products let you down.

The undies do exactly what they say on the box.

Keep body hair trim & tidy with the Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler #review

It's that time of year again. The garden is blossoming, overgrowing even, and you have to make the decision whether to resort to chemicals or brute force to cut down the untidy unwanted growth.

No, I'm not talking about getting the weedkiller or strimmer out in the back yard - I'm talking about tending your "lady garden" which is looking less Brazilian and more Amazon Rainforest.

Now I am almost 50 .....

*Pauses for gasps of disbelief. Doesn't hear any so carries on.*

Yes, almost 50 and as yet have not really mastered the art of trimming the bush so to speak.

Back in the 80's it was perfectly fine to have ridiculously hairy lower regions.  Over the years I have seen magazines instructing us to have landing strips, bald as a bald eagle style and a variety of carefully sculpted hearts and triangles. Who knew you could be dated by your pubic hairstyle?

I have tinkered with creams and lotions, disposable razors (ouch!) and once, for a laugh, shaved the lot and added a vajazzle to entertain my German friend at her local (naked) spa. That didn't end well.

Basically, it seems that Germans had not yet discovered the fun of decorating your pubic area with stick on shiny designs which meant EVERYONE was staring at my, well, y'know. I had to head to the toilets and rip it off.
