    Growing up, I sometimes struggled to find my own footing and be my own person. When living in Florida, I noticed that I was always a passenger in the story. When I was in my mid-twenties, I finally embraced my individuality and honored my unique traits that make me who I am. If I could bottle up that power of purpose and individuality, I would. Lucky for both of us, Katy Perry already has!

    I was pleasantly surprised by the scent of Katy Perry’s INDI Fragrance, a unique and seductive musk fragrance that elevates the senses, available at Walgreen’s in a 1 oz. version. What I love most about Katy Perry’s INDI is the message behind it. Katy Perry has always been such a one-of-a-kind performer and role model for her fans. She’s embraced individualism in her music and life, so it’s inspiring to see her spreading her bravery to be unique through her latest fragrance. Katy Perry’s INDI Fragrance shares her message of self-expression, community and diversity — all bottled up into a great scent. You can get your Katy Perry’s INDI Fragrance and Body Mist here at Walgreen’s.

    The Clean Beauty Conversation: Meet Laura Lemon of Lemon Laine

    Laura Lemon was hooked on beauty from the moment her Grandma Laine handed over her Clinique beauty samples. Her early exposure to beauty and her personal struggles with acne-prone skin lead her to harness her skills as a makeup artist. Laura eventually catapulted her beauty career when she became an associate buyer for Walmart and moved to California to learn everything she could about the industry. As she grew inquisitive about product formulas and the effects on our skin, she launched natural beauty in 2,000 Walmart stores and helped shift perspectives in households around the country. Of all of Laura’s accomplishments, opening her own business is by far her greatest one.

The last thing I want to worry about when I get ready to watch the latest episode of “Insecure” or draw a hot bath is that I’ll be without my favorite wine in hand.
