Fab Little Bag!

my spanish vida blog fab little bag

You've probably guessed the subject of today's post from the cover picture! Yep, I'm chatting about tampon disposal with Fab Little Bag.

I saw these on Twitter a little while ago and instantly I knew I wanted to try them out and feature them on the blog.

Then not so long ago I saw a tweet from Fab Little Bag, that they were offering free samples if you texted a number. Great stuff! Simple right? It would be but, my phone wouldn't let me text the number, grrr.. I think because I have a pay as you go and the bundles only let you ring/text regular numbers.

 Anyway, I cheekily DM'd them on Twitter and they sent me out some samples pretty much straight away! Well, if you don't ask....

They arrived within a few days and just at the right time! So I could get to 'testing' them asap and didn't have to wait another month to try them out for real! I'd like to be able to tell you that was completely planned and timed precisely, but you know me, I'm not that organised, lol!

You know the scenario. Flo, the monthly's, the blob (Marks reference btw!) surfing the crimson wave (still remember that from Clueless!) Whatever you want to call it, she's in town and it's never a comfortable situation. Seriously, even at 34, I'm still not 'used' to it and dread it each month. The ickiness, the pain, the moods, OMG! Why us!? And the last thing we want to deal with is messy disposal!

I love how discreet Fab Little Bag is. It doesn't make a rustling sound, so there's no public toilet paranoia going on. It is really easy to use, with the handy finger loops, so you can hold it in place. There's a sticky strip just on the inside, so it can be sealed securely and Fab Little Bag is not see through in the slightest, so the contents won't be seen.

I think these are a brilliant invention. I mean how many times have you been in a toilet and there's no sanitary bin? and the little waste bin doesn't even have a bin liner. Serious dread and panic always hovers over me. And on airplanes too. Yes there's the bin for hand towels etc, but to put your dirty tampon in there is quite frankly gross, as someone has still got to empty that bin! Quite often the crew (especially on long flights) have to get their hands in there to press all the contents down before it gets too full. Trust me, I'm ex crew, that does happen....

Fab Little Bag gets 10/10 from me and will be a handbag staple from now on. Not only does it get rid of any worry and stress at that time of the month, they are also good for the environment too. I mean it's not really the best thing to flush the tampons down the loo anyway and these Fab Little Bags are oxo-biodegradable and made from 35% organic waste material.

Oh we do like a product that's useful, practical and good to the environment too!

Have you tried Fab Little Bag? Would love to know your thoughts!
You can find them on Twitter here and their website here.

Happy, confident, disposal ladies!

  1. I've actually never found myself without a sanitary bin handy. But these sound useful if you're in a bind.

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
