This post is part of a collaboration between Almay and SheKnows. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
We had a great weekend at the Texas State Fair. There is just something about the start of the Texas Sate Fair that says “fall” even if it is still 95 degrees outside.
This year I had the best time visiting the Almay bus at the fair. I had a chance to spin the wheel of prizes, get a mini makeover, and recharge my phone on the patio and relax.

Almay has proudly announced its collaboration with the USO, the only military non-profit organization that has supported our troops and families for more than 70 years. Almay will honor the women of the U.S. military and veterans, and focus on troops as they transition from service back to their communities.
I got my picture taken at the “kissing booth” and put on the big American flag.
This summer, Almay embarked on the ultimate road trip, creating a custom, Simply American experience that will stop at venues such as state fairs and other festivals. Almay will offer make up touch ups and celebrate the people, places and occasions that best exemplify the American spirit, including service women, veterans, military wives and their families. This means so much to me because we are a former military family. Terence and I lived on base for almost 6 years right after we got married 🙂
The Almay Simply American bus tour is going out with a bang on October 3rd, making its last stop at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Texas peeps check it out! I know a lot of friends who are going to the Music Festival, so don’t forget to stop by the bust and get your free makeup touch-ups with Almay makeup artists, Almay product samples, and giveaways!

She put the most moisturizing lipstick on me. My lips are always dry, so I loved this! She also wrote down all the products we used so I could take it home. #score

Just for kicks I’ll share the WORST picture in America! Ha ha! I actually suggested we ride the dizzy ladybug roller coaster at the fair. I can’t tell you how thrilled we all were to be on it. I look like I have whiplash (because I did!) that ride spins you so hard I could barely stand to get off! Poor Connor’s face….oh my goodness! Terence just kept telling me to stop screaming…these are the memories life is made of. Histerical.
