Launch of New Line of Fragrances that Match Scent w/ Female Personality, by Raw Spirit Founders @Walmart Using IMG Influencers

A new independent fragrance Brand

WILD SPIRIT  Launched July 14th in Walmart stores nationwide

and avail online since June 20 at and


Wild Spirit is a fragrance brand with real ingredients at real prices

that celebrates her individuality. What we put on our bodies

is as important as what we put in them- that’s why Wild Spirit

products are vegan, contain natural essential oils and are free

from parabens, sulphates and dyes. Wild Spirit is proud

to be cruelty free and formulated here in the USA.


Wild Spirit, inspired by sister brand Raw Spirit,

was created by New York-based co-founders,

fragrance designer and CEO Joyce Lanigan

and renowned fashion photographer Russell James.

The fragrance collection consists of four scents,

“Spring Jasmine”, “Driftwood”, “Chill” and “First Snow,”

each embodying distinct personalities designed to

resonate and connect with a specific consumer.  

Each seasonal name possesses a double-connotation;

some might say the Spring Jasmine girl resembles the season

of Spring- being perky, energetic and upbeat.

Or that the First Snow girl is resilient and cool like the season of winter.

But it’s not to say that one doesn’t prefer a little Chill 

in the dead heat of summer.


Each bottle features unique female influencers of diverse ethnicities,

shot by Russell James in natural backdrops, and shines a light

on the individual personalities by putting their touch on

what Wild Spirit is to them.

The influencers featured are IMG models

Victoria Germyn (@victoriagermyn),

Laura James (@jameslaura), and

Eva Adams (@mevadams).

Look for them at a Walmart near you!

If you think you cannot tackle the entire home cleaning process by yourself, it is ideal you consider hiring any reliable cleaner in your area.

When cleaning your house, if you are in a rush or cleaning for last- minute guests, you can easily forget to attend to some places. Whether you hire cleaning services, or do it yourself, this write- up will discuss about some common spots people normally forget to attend when cleaning their homes.

Cleaning the Ceiling Fans

Unless you are living in a place that frequently experience warm climate or you are making use of your ceiling fan daily, you can easily overlook such place when cleaning your home. The blades of the ceiling can collect dirt and dust, most especially when they are not being used for long time periods.

When cleaning your home, getting rid of dust present in your ceiling fan blades is an ideal way of reducing the possibility of contracting dust- related allergies.

Small, hand- held electronic items or electronic devices in general, which you touch daily are often hotspots for germs. It is easy to forget wiping down your television remote, computer keyboard or cell phone.

Be informed that keeping these items clean can assist you prevent germs from spreading, most especially during flu and cold season.


Door Knobs, Light Switches or Small Appliances in General

Items you normally touch on a daily basis should be treated like the other highly- trafficked areas of your house. Ensure you keep germs away by properly cleaning door knobs and light switches.

When you are doing a clean sweep, do not forget to also carefully clean small appliances such as the microwave, coffee maker as well as garbage disposal.


Cleaning Supplies

You probably use cleaning supplies when scrubbing different spots of your house. Some cleaning supplies that we normally forget to clean include cleaning cloths, sponges, toilet brush, feather duster, vacuum cleaner among other things.

Be assured that once you’ve cleaned all the cleaning supplies and sanitized them, they will definitely get your house much cleaner.


Tooth Brush Holder

One of the places that can turn out to be a breeding ground for the germs is the toothbrush holder. When you are cleaning your bathroom, make sure you rinse out properly and wipe down your soap dish and toothbrush holder(s).
