If you’ve been around these parts before, you know I’m a massive fan of Walmart Family Mobile. I started with them back in 2014 and they’re still my favorite (and only) service provider. You could say we’re in a stable, committed relationship, haha! Recently I’ve been busier than ever, if you follow me on Instagram you might know that I’m working on a massive chocolate series where I plan on featuring over 15 different chocolatiers in NYC, and I’m also working on an influencer series collaborating and featuring some of my favorite, and most inspirational people I know. Thanks to all this busyness, my phone has pretty much become attached to my hand!

Walmart Family Mobile Data and a Movie

I’ve also noticed that I’m beginning to run out of data a lot sooner than I used to. I’m attributing it to the hours I spend traveling, during which I stalk my favorite foodie, beauty, and travel accounts on Instagram, and stream my favorite movie and shows – which can eat up data like nobody’s business! So naturally, like I do whenever I need a quick solution, I headed to Walmart for a bit of an upgrade. I picked up the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, a phone smaller than the one I used to have. I’ve been meeting up a lot of new people in the city as a part of my influencer series and I prefer taking a small clutch – my old phone is a bit too big for that, and carrying a larger purse or bag can get cumbersome. I also switched my plan, and guys, I think I’m in love – Walmart Family Mobile’s new Walmart Family Mobile PLUS service plan is a keeper!

So, here’s the deal, if you’ve got some data demands like I do, Walmart Family Mobile PLUS is exactly what you’re looking for. Walmart Family Mobile PLUS features unlimited Talk, Text, and Data. What sets it apart is that it includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus a free movie on VUDU every month! How awesome is that?! You get all of that for $49.88 per month, per line. So here’s how it works, every billing cycle you’ll receive a text with a VUDU code for a free rental. All you have to do is log on to your VUDU account, select “redeem movie credits” plug in your code and you’re good to go!

I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of obsessed with this benefit. Movie night is a big deal at my house – we pull out all the stops, from snacking to snuggly socks. We actually watched a movie last night, I just logged into VUDU using my Chromecast app and streamed it on our TV. Since I’ve been spending so much time on the go, I feel like my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS movie text has become my little reminder to take a break and spend a lazy night at home with my family. And when I am on the go, it’s so comforting to know that I have a service plan that can keep up with me, and that I won’t run out of data when I need it most!

Maximize Your Return with the ZTE ZMAX & Walmart Family Mobile!

It’s about that time of year again – tax time – and that also means (for many) that it’s almost time for your tax return. I don’t know about you, but tax returns can usually result in some interesting purchases. Everything from extravagant dinners to cinnamon pretzel fueled shopping sprees can result from a return. But this year I decided that the best thing for me to do with my bit of extra money was to upgrade my phone – luckily I’m already a dedicated Walmart Family Mobile user, so I knew going in that their plans – including Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE service & Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web plan – and phones were going to be the best way for me to get the most out of my money!


I decided, after much deliberation, that the best phone for me would be the ZTE ZMAX phablet. So I headed to my local Walmart, and after spending an appropriate amount of time in the candy aisle and ogling new DVD’s, picked up the ZTE ZMAX as well as the SIM card. As a blogger and a student I really need a phone that can do more than keep up with me, I need a phone that can make my life a little easier – and so far the ZTE ZMAX has been that phone.


I would like to think that the ghosts of tax returns past played a convincing roll in my decision to upgrade my phone this year. You see, last years tax return may have ended with the purchase of a old fashioned hot dog roller – an item that has collected dust and seen use only once. The ZTE ZMAX is definitely one of the items I own that will never have a chance to collect dust – it’s with me everywhere I go! I take it to school, when I travel, when I’m out during the weekends, when I’m at home, and because it boasts an 8 megapixel camera I also use this instead of my DSLR to take product photos! It’s easily the most impressive tool in my electronic arsenal right now because it full of great features and does so much.


On top of it all, Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE service – which clocks in at $29.88/month (for the first line) for Unlimited Talk, Text & Data which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data – is so good that I’m constantly able to fully enjoy all the functions of my new phone!


Want to make the most out of your money? Well, my ZTE ZMAX and Walmart Family Mobile 4G LTE service is easily one of my smartest investments. The service powers my phone and is kind to my wallet, and the phone is something that I carry with me everywhere, so it’s a small investment that positively impacts my life on a daily basis. I love them and I can’t recommend them enough!

Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web for Back to College!

There’s nothing like starting off the school year with new supplies – this year I’m not only headed to a new school, but I’ve also picked up a new phone that I just adore! I’ve been with Walmart Family Mobile for over a year now, and in my experience it has been the best cheap(est) wireless plan. So when I decided I was in need of a new phone for school, Walmart was the first place I looked. Luckily for me, I spotted the Nokia Lumia 521 on rollback for only $69.88 (down from $99.99)! With the price of textbooks already adding up, I was super excited to find an amazing looking smartphone at such a great price!

The Nokia 521 has already become a crucial part of my routine. I desperately needed a phone that I could rely on to keep me organized and on point, and the Nokia is doing just that. It uses the same Windows Live Tiles that I have on my laptop and I’ve been able to sync much of the information that I need – which is essential for any student, I think. Speaking of needs, I do have to tell you the sound quality is quite good – I need something sharp and clear to wake me up on schooldays and this manages to do the job. I’m telling you I’ve slept through hurricanes (Sandy, Irene, I’m looking at you) – but I haven’t been able to sleep through the alarm on this!

I love having the Lumia 521 near me at all times, it’s great for doing a quick search on the traffic conditions or looking up everything from definitions to concepts of chemistry. I even look up youtube videos of how to do a quick hairstyles in the morning when my hair looks awful and I’m running out of time. I think being back in school nowadays really demands a phone that can keep up with students – something fast and effective. And there’s definitely a need for an affordable wireless plan.
That’s where Walmart Family Mobile comes in, with an Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web service plan for only $34.88 – you really can’t go wrong. I paid a crazy amount of money for textbooks this semester, I’m glad that I can go back to school in style with a sharp looking phone without having to break the bank!

Retro Radiant Orchid Makeup Look with RIMMEL!


I don’t know about you, but I am loving the ‘color of the year’ Radiant Orchid. I think it’s really one of the most complimentary colors out there, and I have been dying to create and share a good drugstore makeup look featuring it. So, naturally, I headed to Walmart to pick out my some products to create the look! One of my favorite drugstore beauty brands is RIMMEL, if you follow me on instagram or twitter you probably already know that I am obsessed (and I mean obsessed) with their Scandaleyes eyeliners so RIMMEL’s new Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara has been the top of my must try list for some time.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop

RIMMEL is obviously a very popular brand at my Walmart, I was just able to get the last True Ivory shade of RIMMEL’s new Stay Matte foundation! I also picked up an eyeshadow quad, two Scandaleyes eyeshadow crayons, RIMMEL Lasting Finish lipstick and their new Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop

The line up: RIMMEL Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara in 003 Extreme Black, Lasting Finish Lipstick in 002 Candy, Scandaleyes Eyeshadow 24hour Waterproof Crayons in 001 Witness White and 006 Paranoid Purple, Glam’Eyes Eyeshadow Quad in 021 State of Grace, and RIMMEL Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in 103 True Ivory.

For this Retro Radiant Orchid Makeup Look:
Prime your face. For this look I only used the RIMMEL Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation – it has a really silky consistency, not liquidy at all, more like a thick mousse – without aeration (or bubbles). And I found that my oily lids didn’t crease at all! Yay! You can go heavy or medium coverage with this one.

 #BeautyInspiration, #CollectiveBias, #shop
1) Apply a sweep of silvery white eyeshadow over your lid. You want to try to get an as opaque a covering as possible, but not go over your crease. Once that’s done, apply the purple eyeshadow into your crease and blend into your white shadow – continue adding purple and blending until you’ve reached the desired light purple tone.
2) Now’s the time to grab your Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Crayon in Paranoid Purple – this is more of a deep purple on it’s own, but swipe a bit into your lash line and blend out and tah-dah! You’ve got a lovely radiant orchid color!
3) Apply liner – I find it helpful to draw the outline of my cat-eye look beforehand, it makes it easier to fix or alter to your liking before filling in.
4) With your Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Crayon in 001 Witness White, pop some into the corners of your eyes as well as your lower lashline – blend with either a brush or your pinkie. This will open up your eyes and keep your look bright and fresh!
5) Finally, swipe on some RIMMEL Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara! I had high hopes for this drugstore mascara and I was not let down – it’s amazing! I love it because it give your eyes some extra drama – without weighing down (or clumping on) your lashes.

I recommend finishing off this look with a swipe of blush & bronzer (lightly) and a nude lip! This is definitely a fun, trendy, makeup look for Spring & Summer – incorporating Radiant Orchid with the retro glam styling of thick eyeliner and dramatic lashes makes it even more fun. What I love best is that RIMMEL’s new Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara give you that coverage and those glam lashes without feeling heavy or cakey at all!
