INdiscreet cozies for personal care products: "oh bloody hell" & "vampire teabags" tampon cozies, "you have a booger" tissue cozies and more!

Tell us about your business.

I started Dreadful Girl with a handful of Tissue Cozies with silly phrases that said things like "you have a booger" and "blow me" and "bless you." I can't remember exactly where I got the idea for my Indiscreet Pad & Tampon Cozies. I can say that it always makes me laugh when I see a woman trying to discreetly pull a tampon from her purse, or conspicuously bringing a flowered pouch to the bathroom with her. We all know what you're doing, lady. So I decided to make some pouches that explicitly said, in so many words, "I am on my period, folks!" The pouches started trending on and made their way around the web to We ♥ It and Tumblr and Pinterest and the like, and they really took off from there. The business continues to grow and I have the best customers and fans. I hope to move into wholesale soon. I also keep a craft and sewing blog, Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! at

What makes your business stand out?

I think my products bring humor to times when we need a smile. When we are hormonal and grouchy, or feeling sick and snotty and gross. Those are the times we could all use a bit of silliness!
