Have a happy period! I would scream and yell, internally of course, when I would hear this advertisement by a popular brand. I was in pain; it was of as if somebody is squelching my stomach and back internally. In spite of that I had to go to work, smile, be efficient and not shout at/murder anybody if they asked me with a smirk, “PMS kya? I can tell”
I have survived my first period with the hope that it probably happened once in a year or something when my grim looking mother clarified and told me that it happens every month. I am sure each and every woman has been through a phase where she wishes that she was born a boy. I secretly still do whenever Aunt Flo strikes me.
But enough of my ramblings! All I can say thank you, Creator of the Universe, for making one sensible lady who understood the pain that women go through and decided to make those five nasty days a fun and sometimes, even a happy experience. Kudos to BeingJuliet.com!
So what does BeingJuliet.com do?
Well, it curates a special box every month containing a month’s supply of sanitary napkins, tampons, panty liners along with thoughtful gifts and goodies to pamper, cheer and indulge us ladies during our periods.
This is what I received in my first ever subscription box in August.
A cute scarf, intimate wipes, Kahwa tea sachets
A Coloressence lipstick in deep red, under eye gel cream, a cute bottle of saunf and my favourite, one tub of Hokey Pokey ice cream!
They also sent in the cute letter with the periods essentials of course. I personally am not comfortable with tampons and I decided to order sanitary napkins only. But they allow you to choose 20 different items.
All the goodies arrived in a sturdy cardboard box bearing the Being Juliet logo.
For the first time in my life, I didn’t mind getting my periods and I even managed to truly smile instead of scowling at everyone. So will I subscribe Being Juliet again? Hell yes!

About Munni of all Trades
We remember the day seven years back when were travelling in a Mumbai local trying hard to come up with a name for our blog when struck us; Khushboo was always called a Jack of all Trades. The name stuck (with a slight modification, of course) and Munni was born.
Six years, over 100 collaborations, lakhs of readers and several awards later; our love for blogging continues to grow. We continue to write on an eclectic range of topics from the funniest autorickshaw signs that we have spotted in Mumbai to how to bathe an elephant. We are true blue Munni of all Trades and we hope to continue on this joyride with our fellow Munnis and Munnas. Read More
