Did you know that Walmart offers a beauty subscription box for just $5/quarterly? It's sent 4 times a year, each season. And it's full of trial sizes, samples and coupons! As always, beauty subscription boxes offer you the opportunity to try out products.
The box is shipped via USPS. And usually shows up in my mailbox with 5 days.
I first heard about Essence Beauty Box a couple of months ago. Lots of buzz surrounding this beauty subscription box because it's contents focus on women of color from Essence magazine!
Oh, and did I mention that it's $15 a month? Free shipping!
Per the website, samples and/or trial sizes will be included. As you can see, I did receive some full size products in the October subscription box. I'm not complaining one bit!
I received the following in my October box: Curls Cre'me Brule Whipped Curl Cream, Calvin Klein Eternity Now, Tarte The Brow Architect~all in one brush, pencil and underscoring concealer, L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Leave-In Conditioner.
I attend several chats during the week, on Twitter. #HERchat is one of top favorites. Why? Because @EmpowHER, host, covers health topics that women are talking about. This week it was Breast Cancer Awareness.
Many doctors, survivors, men and women joined the conversation.
I learned so much on Thursday. One of the doctors, in attendance, spoke about how men survivors feel left out during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We really should do more about that. And that's one of the cool things about #HERchat. People started asking questions about men breast cancer survivors, screenings, stats. It was a lively conversation.
Many of my followers joined in the conversation after seeing my tweets, on their timeline as well. Ah, the positive power of Twitter!

Ipsy offers a monthly beauty samples subscription for just $10 a month. I love the variety and brands that I receive.
Many of them, like Smashbox primers, are now part of my makeup stash! Stop by Ipsy and see what's all the excitement is about. Oh, I should mention Free shipping!
This is a fun way to try out products before you purchase.
Do you have a short list of people who influence your fashion style? I sure do and Caitlyn Becker, HuffPost Live host, is on the Top 5!
As I would take time out to watch and tweet LIVE during the show, I would learn new fashion and beauty tips. Caitlyn has a wonderful infectious personality and one can see she loves fashion when she hosts the show.
I even reached out to Caitlyn, via Twitter, for shoe advice, to complete a Red Carpet look. She was wicked generous and provided me with suggestions.
Over the 3 years, Caitlyn would mention me on "This Week In Style' often. I truly appreciated the shoutouts.
Cut to this segment, HuffPost Live producers reached out to me to surprise Caitlyn via Google Hangout. I am truly honored to have been asked and said Yes! Thank you HuffPost Live!
