    Ovira Review | Endometriosis Period Pain Relief | Is the Ovira safe for Sensitive Skin?

    Do you suffer from painful period cramps or Endometriosis? 💛 I have been testing out my Ovira Noha Period Pain Relief device since the summer and I’m so happy to (finally) share a review on it! I have Endometriosis. After surgery, my pain and symptoms are better, but my first 1-3 days of my period are still quite painful and I still have bloating (AKA Endo Belly, as you can see in this video). I have found my Ovira Period Pain Relief kit SO helpful for my managing my pain. I have always preferred a more natural way to manage and treat pain and the Ovira is just that!

    I have a review on my Ovira, how it works and how I like to use it to manage my endometriosis pain. I also talk about if it’s safe for sensitive skin, as well as the pros and cons! You can find the video HERE or down below:

    A look at the Ovira:

    My Endometriosis Diagnosis Story

    I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Summer season.

    In today’s video post, I am sharing my Endometriosis Diagnosis Story. I published this video on Friday.

    In this video, I will be talking about my long journey to diagnosis, some of my symptoms and about my laparoscopic surgery back in March 2020. This journey was one of my inspirations for my bead collaboration: OHM Don’t Give Up. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    Please note, I am not a doctor or healthcare professional. Please consult with your doctor if you think you or someone you love may have Endometriosis. For more information about Endometriosis, here are some resources I have found helpful:

    The Story & Inspiration Behind my Bead Design with OHM Beads | Don’t Give Up

    Happy Monday! I hope this blog posts finds you and your loved ones safe, healthy and doing well.

    This past Saturday, I premiered a special video on Youtube. It is part two of my “Exciting Announcement” video. If you remember from my previous blog post, I shared that I will be OHM Beads June 2020 OHMistry Project. This means I got to design my own bead with OHM Beads! It is such a surreal, crazy dream come true.

    In my new video, I share a detailed look at my bead, as well as the story and inspirations behind it. This is probably my most personal (and slightly vulnerable) video yet. You can watch it HERE or down below:

    Thank you to this incredible community and to OHM Beads for making this dream come true. Biggest virtual hugs!

    OHM Don’t Give Up

    My OHMistry Project bead is called, DON’T GIVE UP. It is a silver oxidized bead and will be releasing on June 19th, 2020 at 10:00 AM Pacific time zone.
    The limited-edition release of DON’T GIVE UP is part of Project OHMistry and is limited to 111 signed and serialized pieces. A certificate of authenticity is included inside a limited edition box (I actually got to illustrate the box art myself).

    As mentioned in my video, this bead reflects a journey. It is a mountain that has a dark side and a light side to it. Here is the story behind the bead:

    DON’T GIVE UP, you tell yourself. You feel it in your heart and soul. You are meant to succeed.

    It starts with those first few steps. But with all journeys, it is a struggle of faith and self-assurance. Fear finds its way to creep in. It twists your path, voices harsh judgment, creates doubt and pain. It tries to seize the victory that awaits you.

    At your darkest moment, when all feels lost, this bead reminds you to keep going. Push upwards, onwards! Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see.

    Having faith will guide your journey, through the darkness. The clouds will open, the path will brighten and the further you go, the clearer your path becomes. You will find unexpected help. You will experience achievements, big and small. Before you know it, you will arrive at the end and the start of a new beginning.

    You will be victorious. Every fear, doubt, and painful memory will be conquered.

    What is your “Don’t Give Up” journey?

    Leading up to June 19th, I will continue to share the journey of designing this bead with OHM Beads! Stay tuned for official OHM Beads photos, the process of seeing my bead come to life (from wax to silver) and how I’ve been styling my bead.

    Side note: Can you spot my artist signature, on this bead? I love that OHM Beads added this detail to the bead. You can also find it on the box art:

    Anyway, that is it for today’s blog post! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and talk to you soon! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH AGAIN! xo
