Anytime I prepare for an upcoming trip, I always find myself feeling a little more adventurous than usual. There’s just something about re-creating yourself in a new space, it’s like being an artist and vacationing in a new city is your blank canvas. As I prepare for my fourth Essence Festival in New Orleans, I’m excited to debut a new bolder, brighter do’ and usher in my experiment with a little extra color all summer long!
I definitely don’t believe in a face full of makeup in the sweltering heat of summer (New Orleans will average 92-degrees days all week long) – but I do believe that little pops of smudge free color can go a very long way. Recently, I’ve been anxious to experiment with adding bright blues, greens and purples into my beauty mix. From lash-enhancing mascaras to eye-popping bright liners – My summer beauty mantra is “Less is more!” My summer color arsenal is filled with a variety of mascaras and colorful pencils that will create and summer-time fun look in 10mins or less!
When experimenting with color, it’s never a good idea to grab expensive department store brands first. That’s why I make Walmart my one-stop shop for beauty buys that won’t break the bank! Walmart helps you save on beauty items that you love and that keep you looking your best. Walmart provides products, such as those from CoverGirl and Olay, that help you feel beautiful. Find beauty items from P&G brands like Olay and CoverGirl at your Walmart’s everyday low prices.
CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara is designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look. Who has time to fumble with falsies, glue and extensions when you want to get out and go? With LashBlast Volume Mascara’s patented volume-boosting hypoallergenic formula, you can achieve the perfect, big, bold lash look with only a few brush strokes.
Every girl loves a great cat eye, however, creating the perfect shape starts with the perfect pencil. CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner pencil is self-sharpening and glides on easily so you get the perfect line every time. It includes a smudger tip and IT’S WATER RESISTANT! (Hello? The best way to beat the heat is with sweat-proof makeup!) With colors like chestnut, plum and midnight blue, CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner pencils gives you the control and versatility that you want, at a price that you can afford.

Black Friday Shopping is single-handedly the biggest shopping day of the year! It’s no wonder why major retailers are doing their best to wrangle shoppers in with tempting deals available as early as Thanksgiving day. After searching through countless circulars, frequent shopper emails and my favorite destination for all things Black Friday Shopping (TheBlackFriday.com) I found some of the best black Friday shopping deals from Best Buy, Target and more worth every moment of camping out and waiting in line for below.
Known as one of the premier shopping destinations for Black Friday shoppers – Best Buy is where the hardcore shoppers camp out for the exclusive deals. Shoppers won’t have too much time to be thankful on Thanksgiving with family since the lines for the big box store will probably wrap around the corner early morning prior to store doors opening on 5pm Thanksgiving day.

Ah, the seasons are starting to change. Students are headed back to school and before we know it, we’ll be celebrating the holidays in grand fashion. When it comes to my fitness regime, this is what I refer to as the slump phase. Typically, I’m so wrapped up in preparing for New York Fashion Week and sliding right into holiday fun that before I know it, I’m 10 pounds heavier thanks to holiday sweets and I don’t know where to begin my post holiday fitness routine.
If you’re anything like me, now more than ever is the best opportunity to add a little sparkle to your fitness regime to get you through the pre-holiday In an attempt to recharge my fitness routine, I decided to change up the way I look at fitness and living a healthier lifestyle altogether. From the faint feeling of change in seasons, I decided to switch up my gym routine to taking a little fitness outside of the box.
During a recent shopping visit to WalMart, I got the idea of adding a little sparkle to my entire thought around fitness starting with my gear and ending with my diet. Check out tips you can use today to add a little sparkle to your own fitness journey below.
1. Add Some Sparkle To Your Diet. Just by adding a little a little Canada Dry Sparkling Seltzer Water to your juice or smoothie, you can enjoy a spritz of sparkling water, without feeling the guilt that sodas and other soft drinks may leave.
2. Add Some Sparkle To Your Fitness Gear. Just by adding a few new pieces to your workout wardrobe, you can ignite a whole new outlook on working out. After all, you can’t wear the same old grey t-shirt to the gym all year long.
3. Add A Spark To Your Workout. For the first time ever, I thought it would be a good time to try out a yoga class. I believe the summer time is a great time to try out new and different activities and yoga is the perfect activity for any novice to experience.
Thinking about adding a little sparkle to your mundane routine soon? Why not add Canada Dry Sparkling Seltzer Water to the mix and save money in the process with a coupon towards your purchase. (You can thank me later!)
