La Vida Es Bella & My Traveling Necessity ~ #AlwaysDiscreet

La Vida es Bella 

Simply put - Life is Beautiful!


This post is sponsored by Always Discreet, however, all opinions are mine alone. 


Have you noticed the change here on my website, along with the change within me as well? Yes, not only am I happier, but I've been traveling a lot more since the month of December. I’ve been fulfilling my travel bucket list. Back in December I shared my holiday travel packing list, and since then I've been asked questions about the Always Discreet brand and their line of products, and as always I want to share my transparency with you.

One thing you should know by now is that I NEVER promote a product that I haven't personally used, and you may be wondering, well how often do you wear Always Discreet, and why? And my answer to you would be ALL THE TIME! Yes, especially when I travel. And why? Because I experience LBL (Light Bladder Leakage). Also something I've shared, along with the ways that you can control bladder leaks.


Did you know that one in three women have a sensitive bladder and experience bladder leaks? If you're one of them, know that you're not alone. I'm right there with you along with millions of other women who may be ashamed to say so. I, however, am not one of those women, because I know that it’s not something to be ashamed of. Here are a few facts that might make you feel a little bit more comfortable talking about it.
  • 50% of African American women experience bladder leaks
  • 33% of women who do experience bladder leaks lack the confidence of wearing the clothes they love (I'm not one of them, because of Always Discreet)
  • 45% of women with sensitive bladders feel older than they really are because most think that it's an old person's problem. That is absolutely not correct! LBL can occur at any time and any age. Mine actually started when I was about 35 and I don't consider that old at all. However, I've had friends who started in their 20's. 

So now that you know a little bit more, here's why Always Discreet is my absolute traveling necessity, and why I never leave home without it.


I experience LBL as I mentioned above, and when traveling I'd much prefer not to have to worry about my clothing getting soiled while I laugh, run around and chase my daughter and I especially don't want to worry on super long flights. While I use the Always Discreet liners when I'm home just lounging around, I especially love the Always Discreet Boutique underwear.

So why do I call them my traveling necessity? 

Have you ever been on a super long flight, or maybe even a short one, but because of air turbulence, you had to stay in your seat because the seatbelt light was on? But guess what, the light is now off but everyone, along with you, has to use the bathroom? Now you're stuck in a line and just can't hold it much longer. You finally made your way to the front and you're already doing the potty dance. You know, the one where you squeeze your legs together and pray that you make it in time. However, by the time you get in and can pull your pants down, you've leaked a bit.


Guess what? Ain't nobody got time for that! No-one, and I mean NO-ONE likes the feeling of wet underwear. These not only keep you dry but also odor free until you can get to your final destination and change out of them.

I remember the first time my daughter saw me in them. She asked, "What are you wearing?", and my response was "It's underwear for grownups". Not only are they comfortable, but they are super "discreet" as well. I bet you couldn't tell I had it under my shorts, did you? But I sure do! I don't just talk the game, I put my money where my mouth is.


These are great not only under "regular" clothing but gym clothing as well. I have been trying to lose weight and have been working out, mostly walking and rope jumping, and I wear them under my workout clothes, and you could never tell that I had them on. So if you're like me and you experience LBL (light bladder leakage) or bladder incontinence as it's also called, then you're absolutely going to LOVE the Always Discreet Boutique underwear.

So buy a product that's designed for bladder leaks, ditch the period pads, because after all, they're for your periods. Get Always Discreet that offers exceptional protection, will keep you dry and without the bulk and do the things you've always been reluctant to do. Always Discreet literally has you covered.

The Always Discreet line of products is available for purchase at Walmart.
