Amp Up Your Style Thanks to TRESemme & Walmart! ~ #AmpUpYourStyle

I received financial compensation in working with Global Influence in exchange for posting this campaign. All opinions are my own.

Know what I love about summer? The golden highlights it leaves in my hair! No trips to the salon for this girl, the Sun gives her the natural dye job without having to spend a penny. The downside though? My hair becomes more damaged from the sun exposure and UV rays. Dry, brittle, split end hair? No thank you! So while I love the natural highlights, the sun damage makes my hair harder to style and manage.

This is why I head to Walmart to find quality products at an affordable cost that I know will renew and replenish the moisture my hair has lost over the past few months. My hair needs to be ready for fall season styles!

Image 3Luckily Walmart and TRESemme have teamed up to help women like me get salon gorgeous hair this VMA season! Thanks to Walmart I’ll be rocking TRESemme VMA styled locks! I love watching the VMAs on MTV and seeing the red carpet pre-show. Always gives me such great ideas on how to style my hair for a rockin night out. I actually have long hair that goes well below my shoulders. I know I can rely on TRESemme products to keep it smooth, sleek, and manageable.

Making Daily Healthy Choices Thanks to Walgreens #BalanceRewards! ~ #CollectiveBias #shop

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BalanceRewards #CollectiveBias

Walgreens4Last year I ventured into a weight loss journey and successfully lost 40 lbs over the spring and summer by making healthy choices! As winter came along, I found myself sluggish, not working out as much, and enjoying holiday goodies and winter comfort foods a little too much. By the time warm weather hit this year, I stepped on the scale and discovered I had gained quite a bit of the weight back. To say this was disheartening was an understatement.

Though I didn’t let it get me down for too long… Aside from my general health, there is an important reason of why I want to get in shape and boost my energy. That reason is this little guy below! This momma needs to be able to keep up with him and his energy!

First Look at Paul Rudd in Marvel’s ANT-MAN! ~ #AntMan

AntManAlright all you Marvel fans… I have a treat for you today! Check out the above image of Paul Rudd in Marvel’s ANT-MAN, which hits theaters July 17, 2015! I know I know, we still have to wait almost a year for the film… But I’m excited to at least get a teaser image.

The above image was taken from a shot on location in San Francisco. Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang (AKA Ant-Man). Michael Douglas plays as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly stars as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.

Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, Marvel’s ANT-MAN continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in Marvel’s Avenger films! According to Marvel: Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Are you a Marvel fan? Do you plan to see ANT-MAN next summer?
