Happy Monday! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and is off to a great Monday! Who loves Mondays? Kidding!  The weather was really nice in the San Antonio area. It was well into the 70’s, and one day 80’s. Current events have been so crazy lately. Yesterday there was a shooting at a mall that my son and I frequent, about 10 minutes or less from my house.  In many instances I have allowed my son to go to Rolling Oaks Mall with his friend to shop etc. My heart sunk as one of his friends sent him a text message saying that they were physically there at the time of the shooting. I am still horrified. One person was killed, and seven were injured. Two individuals were attempting to rob a jewelry store. I am still in disbelief. Why would someone do such a thing? Public shootings have really become a norm in our country and its VERY scary. My kiddo immediately said he never wanted to go to that mall again. I am so sad that he has to live his life in fear. I didn’t live my child or teen years in fear of mass or public shootings. It’s disheartening. Praying for peace in our country.

Alright! Sorry for the moment of sadness! Finding clothes during this up and down weather has proven to be a task! I REFUSE to bust out shorts. Its not that type of party. Besides the extreme paleness of my legs would SCARE everyone. I appreciate that I can wear sandals in the “colder” months, LOL, so I pulled out my Animal Print Steven Madden Carson’s. Ya’ll, I SEARCHED high, and low and cannot find these anywhere. Steve Madden usually repeats shoes over multiple seasons, and I though for sure these would be repeats! NOPE! Don’t worry, I linked similar! As the season progresses into Spring I will post all of my Spring favorites. White t-shirts are always a staple in my wardrobe…LADIES please don’t allow your bra to show. I’ll leave it there. My jeans are EVERYTHING! Ya’ll grab these! I was able to squeeze these thighs of mine into a size 2, they must run BIG! LOL! I would say they run large. This particular pair of destroyed denim is VERY popular. They had them in like 2 stores in SA. I bought two pair, jeans are not forgiving on me at all! Anywho- Have an AMAZING DAY babes!

Hey Ya’ll! I hope all is well with everyone! It’s almost Friday so that is always a good thing right? I want to take a moment to mention a new section of my blog that I will be adding. Having served in the military is one aspect of my life that I am most proud of. My military service was one of the best decisions of my life. I have learned so much being a Veteran navigating through the Department of Veteran Affairs, some good and some horrific. Having a platform is an amazing way to share the good, and the blunders. Believe me when I say there have been tons of blunders. My goal is to have an entire tab with Veteran information. Over the last two years I have experienced what has been an absolute nightmare. I would not want anyone to ever go through what I went through so I am going to write about it, and suggest what I think is important to stay on top of your healthcare as a Veteran. My first suggestion would be to obtain a complete copy of your medical records, and READ THEM! The Department of Veteran Affairs will provide your medical record to you on a CD. Get an electronic copy so that you can print your records and read them at your leisure. The Department of Veteran Affairs does not include consent forms nor certain “addendums” that certain providers write about you in your medical record. How do I know? I scoured my medical record, and found notes that referred to certain addenda, but couldn’t locate the providers addendum. I made a complaint to HHS, as it is Federal Law that the VA has to provide me with a complete copy of my medical record. I have yet to hear back from HHS and they have been investigating this for months. The VA does not want me to have them. But guess what? I am obtaining those addenda’s. They are doing something or hiding something they have no business hiding. If you don’t know some of the abbreviations or medical terminology in your medical record, GOOGLE THEM! Compare the notes in your medical record to make sure they actually match up with what you actually spoke to your provider about. Second, check out your medical providers through State Licensing agencies. Check to make sure they are actually a specialist in the field in which you suspect them to be. The Department of Veteran Affairs does not follow State Laws, and often employee foreign Physicians with non-equivalent medical school and training. Recently it was brought to my attention that a surgeon at the VA in San Antonio Texas was not the specialist in which the Director of the VA in San Antonio certified her to be. This particular surgeon performed less 8 procedures of the same procedure she performed on me. But informed me that she performed this surgery ALL the TIME! She left a VAST amount of damage that cannot be reversed. I trusted the VA, and trusted this agency to employee Doctors who are actually specialist. Despite State Records showing otherwise, the Director of VAMC-SA continued to make public disclosures in reference to this surgeon being a specialist. She has most likely had deaths of patients she has operated on after 30 days. VAMC-San Antonio wouldn’t reveal this information. They wouldn’t reveal this information as I am sure tons of patients have died by the hands of this Physician. This Physician is now FLEEING the country to Japan in the next couple of days, but my worry is when she returns back to the United States!!! SO CRAZY! More to come on this entire story!

N-E-WAY! How is everyone liking the velvet boot trend! I have two pairs, and kinda regret purchasing one of the two pairs. The best thing with any trend is to not over do it! The only trend that can anyone can be safe with is the off the shoulder TREND! That trend seems to be here to stay! I am in love with these BLUE Velvet Booties! Seriously, I would wear them with everything if I could! I hope everyone has an amazing day, and be amazing babes! Destroyed Denim + Blue Velvet Booties Destroyed Denim + Blue Velvet Booties Destroyed Denim + Blue Velvet Booties Destroyed Denim + Blue Velvet Booties

Hey Ya’ll!

I’m back on the blog with a denim on denim look! I’m always afraid of denim on denim until I put it on! It’s such a classic, and you can legit make it work with any shade of denim. I added a nude heel which is always my go too!  I hope everyone is off to a great start in 2017! I’m too thrilled that 2016 is behind me. Last year was no doubt one of the worst! I am writing a series of blog posts specifically about why last year was the worst….stay tuned! Until then here is DENIM + DENIM! PS: My top is mens! I simply sized down! 

Irresistible Me + Jade Hair Straightening Brush

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! We didn’t do a ton this weekend, and were able to catch up on things that needed to be done around the house. That LITERALLY took ALL day. HA! It wasn’t my intention to take all day, but I took so many breaks in between..LOL!

Sooooo, today I am reviewing the Jade Straightening Brush from Irresistible Me!  Irresistible Me has all kinds of hair products, extensions, wigs, hair tools and accessories. Right up my alley! I wear wigs and extensions, a really important tool is a straightener. NEVER ever do I like for my hair to be tangled at the ends or unkept. The Jade Hair Straightening brush is hands down one of the best straighteners I have ever owned. This little baby was SUPER easy to use, and I finished my hair in 10 minutes or less!  I was able to eliminate tangles and any unwanted frizz at the bottom of some of my oldest wigs! Can the Jade Straightening Brush be used on extensions and real hair? YES! It can be used on any kind of hair, or extensions. Be sure to check the temperature compatibility before using the Jade Hair Straightening brush on any extensions or wigs. I never set any hair tool on the highest setting. I have also used the Jade Hair Straightening brush on my real hair. This is a product you definitely want to add to your routine!
