My natural cycles story
Today, September 26th, I’m sharing my story with Natural Cycles for World Contraception Day. 🌍 If there's one thing we’ve learned from looking back at the history of contraception, it’s that the ability to make an informed decision about your birth control method is absolutely crucial.
In pharmacy school, we learned about all the options for contraception, but at the time, I didn’t want an IUD or implant, I was tired of trying to remember a pill every day, there was no way I’d leave anything up to chance with condoms or “FAM” so I felt like the only option I could trust was...
It's been a while since I've updated the blog, but a lot has changed in a year!

Some of my first blogs were all about being a Spotlight ambassador, and now I get to help grow this program for the entire company!
So far, it's been incredibly exciting. There have been two projects I've worked on recently that I wanted to highlight here: Associate-Led Shoppable Livestreams and the first Associate-curated walmart.com pages!

Evolution_18 by Bobbi Brown
When I first started @DrLaurenCastle on Instagram and Facebook for #WalmartSocialChamps, I couldn't wait to share about my favorite products and brands at Walmart that made wellness accessible and affordable. One of the very first brands I ever posted about was Evolution_18, "a collection of highly effective, simple formulas that are designed to target a wide range of beauty concerns. Formulated with clean, high-quality ingredients, these supplements have everything you need for a beauty boost from within. Get ready for gorgeous skin, strong nails, and shinier hair. Created by Bobbi Brown."
Welcome to Wellness at Walmart
Hello and welcome to my blog!
First things first, a disclaimer: I am a proud Walmart associate and have worked for the company for the last 9 years; however, this blog is not sponsored by or affiliated with Walmart in any way.

Now, if you've followed me on social for the last two years, you've probably seen me post about #wellnessatwalmart, or #walmartsocialchamps, or #mywalmartstory. But I've always wanted a place where I could really expand upon those short captions or photos...
