Menstrual Cramp Relief Tea

Ladies, we all know how annoying that time of the month can be! At best, “Aunt Flo” is an annoyance but for many it means cramps that will make you stay in bed the entire time. Nobody wants that. We, women are busy people! We’ve got things to do, little ones to take care of, places to go!

Which is why I want to introduce you to Maika. I first fell in love with these home and travel goods because they are so pretty. I’m a sucker for all...

But through the years, I’ve come to realize that even thought they might contain beneficial green tea, the frappuccinos are also fun of sugar (or artificial sugar) and other crazy, not beneficial ingredients.

Thankfully, I’m also addicted...
