Put a SPARK into your shopping: Spark Studio

I love online shopping. Like love it.  When I'm bored sometimes I just go onto some website and start looking for things that I want to buy.  One of my favorite stores to just browse and look around is Walmart.  They have some amazing things and great prices.  Well Walmart just got a whole lot better!  They just launched a different division of their site and it's called Spark Studio.

What is Spark Studio you ask?  Well I'll tell you.  Spark Studio is the fun, new, and exciting way to shop Walmart.  Inspired by Walmart shoppers, you can find and select items crowd-sourced by Pinterest users.  Find something you like? Pin it, or purchase the item through 
Walmart [dot] com.  

With Spark Studio, you can browse and shop products by:

1) Inspirations- Items by Walmart shoppers on Pinterest
2) Fashion and Beauty- Discover must-haves from Walmart shoppers
3) For the home- Solutions and ideas from Walmart fans
4) Babies- Search the top picks from Pinterest moms
5) Pets- Find everything you will need for your pet
6) Playtime-  A collection of items to entertain the whole family

You get to these categories by clicking on the arrows to navigate you to the different categories and then you use the drop down menu and you can search by brand, color or most popular on Pinterest.

I started a Pinterest board to help me keep track of the things that I loved.  First I searched the site by color: green, yellow and gray.  These are the fun things I found.

Baby Mod - Modena 3-in-1 Fixed Side Crib, Cool GreyPhoenix Gigi Upholstered Accent Chair, Multiple ColorsSafavieh Soho Adeline Wool Rug, Grey/Ivory
These two I found by searching a brand, Better Home and Gardens.
Better Homes and Gardens Englewood Heights Chaise Lounge Better Homes and Gardens Ashwood Road 6-Piece Dining Set, Brown Cherry
And these two I found by searching the popular Pinterest products.  I'm obsessed with that bunk bed!

What is nice that about the products that have been pinned is that they are real people pinning this, not just the merchant.  So you see what is popular among real people, real moms and not just people trying to sell something.  

I had so much fun creating a Pinterest Board for all of the stuff I found on Spark Studio.  You should create one too.  If you do, leave a comment with the link to your board so I can check out all the cool stuff that you found on Spark Studio.

I would love it if you followed along.
