Casual OOTD Feat. Rue21 & Fashion Nova

IMG_0008

Good day beauties! Today I have a very casual outfit for you. This has been one of my go-to styles until I get back to my ideal weight. The style that I am referring to are high-waisted jeans and cute flowy tops. Flowy stops lets me be the girly girl that I have come to love. The high-waisted jeans lets me camouflage my belly fat that my beautiful new baby boy has left me with. I always like to include some type of glam on my feet when dressing casual. In the video, you will see the gold detail on my flats that I’m just in love with. Enjoy and have a beautiful Tuesday! Top: […]

A Very Personal Video of my Life as a Soldier

military

Today I doing something different on the blog since today I am taking time to reflect on our fallen heros. Most of you know that I was in the US Army and served two tours in Iraq. I have been out of active duty for about 10 years but feels like only yesterday, I was still lacing up my boots. The video that I am sharing is of our tour during from 2004-2005. This was my life and this was and still is my family. It’s funny how people from all different walks of life can come together to form a bond stronger than some people in your own blood family.  Welcome to my life […]

The Unknown Soldier by David Jay

The Unknown Soldier

David Jay is a man who I am totally obsessed with. David Jay is a photographer that raises awareness by taking photos of people where we would typically look away. Staring is rude, right? His photos demands your attention. I had the pleasure of meeting David Jay at his exhibit in Houston for The Scar Project which focuses on breast cancer. David Jay’s work is amazing and it’s the truth. David Jay was previously a fashion photographer for nearly 20 years prior to his shift in photography. His latest project, The Unknown Soldier touches me deep. I spent two years in Iraq and I could have easily been injured or killed. Many emotions are going […]

Sunday Brunch: Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp

Tia Juanita's Fish Camp

Good day beauties!  After attending church on this gloomy day, we decided to try out a food spot that we never visited. We ended up at Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp. I love the laid back atmosphere. The appearance of Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp makes me feel as if I am in Galveston. I love the old antique truck located in the front area. You can see it in the first picture. There is a nice outdoor eating area that’s covered in the front. I would love to sit out there on a beautiful day drinking mimosas.    I ordered a cup of chicken gumbo and the seafood omlet meal. The gumbo was SEASONED and full of […]

Practice Photoshoot

IMG_14181

Good day beauties! A few days ago I was playing around with my camera in my backyard. My hubby always take my fashion photos but I was trying to see what I can come up with on my own since he isn’t always around when I’m dolled up. The day was full of rain so I didn’t have any sunlight to play with whatsoever…..take note of the filters used. Nevertheless, here is what I came up with. I plan on practicing and practicing until I am satisfied with my own creativity. I know many bloggers out there don’t have someone who they can rely on and they take amazing photos of themselves. Being universal is […]

IMG_6975

I normally […]

New: Nyx Avant Pop Eyeshadow Pallets

Nyx Avant Pop Eyeshadow Pallets

It looks as though one of my favorite companies has come out with some new eyeshadow pallets called Nyx Avant Pop. There’s three different pallets (from top to bottom): Art Throb, Surreal My Heart, and Nouveau Chic. Each pallet has ten colors with matte and pearl finishes. Nyx Avant Pop Eyeshadow can produce a soft look to an extravagant look all in one pallet. Right now the Nyx Avant Pop pallets retails for $17.00.   What do you think about Nyx Avant Pop Eyeshadow Pallets? I don’t think I will run out on this one because of the numerous eyeshadow pallets that I already own. I do love the size of these pallets making them super convienent to thrown in […]

Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation

Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation

Loreal True Match Lumi foundation has been added to my list of beloved drugstore foundations. Besides MAC Prolongwear, I have sworn by Revlon Colorstay for the last few years. I finally decided to give Loreal a chance in the foundation category. I’m glad that I did!   First, let’s talk about the packaging and the wonderful pump provided. The pump is a breath of fresh air. Any foundation is less hassle and less germs/bacteria with a pump. The consistency of Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation is a tad bit watery than Revlon’s Covergirl which I actually like since the weather is becoming warmer. Wearing a heavy foundation in the spring and summer season in Texas […]

Snippets of my Journal: Encourage One Another

Encourage

Photo Credit “Encourage one another”…..something so simple and can take all of five seconds to do. I am always learning and working on becoming a better person. Sometimes, I think I focus too much on myself and my goals, that I often forget to encourage others. I do a great job here on the blog but I am referring to real life. I am talking about looking someone dead into their eyes and giving them words of encouragement. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it was for encouragement from others. It takes only a few words to really give someone a boost. I am challenging myself to become more encouraging this week (in person) and hopefully it will stick and become a norm in my life. […]

$1 ShopMissA Haul

ShopMissA

Good day loves! Today I have a huge haul from ShopMissA. ShopMissA is a website that has everything that us ladies love for only $1. Yes honey, this includes, jewelry, makeup, accessories, eyelashes, tools, nail décor, and so much more. Since everything is so cheap, I went a little crazy. I believe that I purchases thirty something bucks worth of goodies. The quality of the merchandise at ShopMissA isn’t bad at all. It has about the same quality as forever21. I apply a coat of clear nail polish  to the jewelry to make them last a tad bit longer. I think ShopMissA is perfect if you want to quickly grow your collections (makeup, nail décor, eyelashes, […]

Raw Zucchini Salad

zucchini salad

Good day loves! Don’t freak out when you read the “raw zucchini” in the title. As a pinterest addict, I have been seeing a ton of zoodle (zucchini that has been spiralized into noodle-like strings.) recipes. I figured that I would just try them as a base for a regular salad. I normally use some type of green leaves but that could get boring. Not only was the zucchini a nice spin to my salad, but it tasted amazing!! Sometimes I have to force myself to like some healthy foods but I didn’t have to with the zoodles. Of course, zucchini is healthy for you so this dish is a win-win.   I purchased my spiralizer from amazon. You […]
