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.

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

Flying on Norwegian from Alicante to Fort Lauderdale via Stockholm

landing into Stockholm on the way back from Fort Lauderdale In my previous post about our recent  Mini break to Fort Lauderdale I skipped past the airport and flying part as I thought it'd be good to have that info in it's own little post. * * * * * * * * * * Flying long haul from Alicante will always involve a connecting flight. Usually via the UK or Barcelona or Madrid.  As we wanted to fly straight into Fort Lauderdale rather then Miami our choice was a little more limited. We found flights on Norwegian from Alicante - Stockholm - Fort Lauderdale. Perfect. The flight to Stockholm was at 06.30am so it meant a super early start, but when going on holiday this is kinda acceptable isn't it.  We were about an hour delayed out of Alicante because of the torrential rain. We weren't that concerned though as we had about four hours wait in Stockholm before our flight to Fort Lauderdale. The Norwegian flight ALC (Alicante) - ARN (Stockholm Arl

Morning Oats

If you're anything like me I'm always looking for the next healthy/weight-loss secret!  Something that I can easily incorporate into my lifestyle without it feeling like a diet or a chore. I've done 'diets' in the past, but now I'm more into the whole lifestyle change - I'm in it for the long run! A couple of things that I've been eating/drinking on a regular basis for easily the last six months, that I think has been the result of me being able to keep the lbs at bay and actually feel so much healthier. Just a simple change in my morning habits.  I'm talking breakfast here guys. So easy and simple. Something I've taken from the Dukan diet that I have done in the past.  That was to have oats for breakfast. With skimmed milk. Oats are a slow releasing carb, so they gradually fill you up which ultimately stops those mid-morning cravings. I have two generous spoonful's of oats in a bowl and mix with s
