Every now and again, every woman should be made feel like royalty. Whether it's through preferential treatment from her loved ones, a special gift for herself, or even an evening spent feeling like her most beautiful best. And for this reason, every woman should have at least one beauty look or two in her arsenal for when she's showing up to the world as the royal goddess she is. For occasions like this, especially date night with my husband, I like to have a nice, simple smoky eye trick up my sleeve. The classic smoky eye is subtle, not too harsh, but still has the intensity to make folks stop and take notice.

For my most recent date night, I wanted to look like royalty, but I wanted to do it with minimal effort and budget, of course. The NEW COVERGIRL Premium Eyeshadow Palettes at Walmart offer just what I was looking for when it came to creating a fresh, new look for said date night out. We are well overdue for some alone time these days and I wanted to make sure I gave him a look unusual from the barefaced and barely pulled together TWA I've been sporting for the last several weeks. My goal was to create a simple smoky eye with that star factor, so I chose the NEW COVERGIRL Premium Eyeshadow Palette in Overthrown palette to bring my look to life.

5 Ways to Pull Yourself Out of a Creative Rut

Have you ever experienced a creative rut? You know, that dark time when it seems like nothing you attempt to create materializes to much? Writer's block shows up like an uninvited guest and takes the spare room, kitchen, dining room, and before you know it, the whole house? While that may seem like an extreme metaphor, I believe you get my point. I think at some point or another, all of us creatives have fallen prey to the dreaded creative rut.

Many factors may cause the uninspired feeling we experience during a creative rut. Sometimes it can be onset by lifestyle changes. Other times it can be triggered by traumatic events occurring in our personal lives. And since I've recently been working diligently to pull myself out of one, I decided I would share with you guys a few ways I've done (and still doing) so.
