I’ve had my share of traveling in every class of seating they…

TMI: My Secret To The Cleanest Smelling Vajayjay Ever

I’ve always had pretty good BO. I swear I am blessed with it! I remember my mom walking past me as a kid and her awesome feminine smell just lingering.

As I get older taking time for me is very important to me. I believe in the saying that “you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself.” That said I am very much a hermit who suffers from severe anxiety— especially about going out into public places alone.
