FALL + JORD Cora Koa & Rose Gold Wood Watch

Hello! I hope all is well with everyone!!!

The weather is finally beginning to tapper off from  90 degrees……YIKES! I’m loving all of the fall fashion, but shutter at wearing a sweater in 90 degree weather despite the fact that fall is in full swing. I am loving all of the fall fashion! This is my first blog post in a long while, I don’t have a solid excuse. Claiming blogger block would be a stretch. Over the last year or so my life has been a bit of a rollercoaster, and I needed a pause. Slowly but surely I am making my way back into a more traditional routine. I am nothing without a good routine! My biggest challenge is fatigue, low iron and D3. Caffeine, and Monster Rehab have literally been my best friend. I know, I know Monster rehabs are bad for me. We all have our vices, Monster Rehab is mine, and I NEED IT TO FUNCTION. LOL!

Black + Valentines Day Romper

Black + Valentines Day Romper

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is doing well, and had a great weekend. The weather was so nice over the weekend and well into the 80’s. My son and I were able to meet up with my best friend for dinner on Saturday  who is more like my sister to celebrate my birthday early. It was nice spending time with my best friend. We don’t see each other that often despite being about 45 minutes apart. I haven’t done much of anything as I have been recovering and dealing with my overall health. Getting out with my friends and family felt great, and was a nice change of pace!

I am so thankful for my blog and my readers. My blog gives me a pause in life. When I’m out taking photos with my son its as if all the bad, sad and wrong doesn’t exist. It’s my son sharing his love of photography and me sharing my love of fashion. What’s your outlet? Or hobby? Everyone has to have one, its the best form of therapy. AND its cheaper! Am I right?

Alright! On to this Valentines day business! Who has plans to get out and enjoy this day with loved ones? I have come across so many different looks. LOTS of red. I figured I would don this black romper with a pop of gold from my heels and a red LIP! My red lip was my flirt of red. This romper is everything! Red can be hard to wear so I opted for something neutral that can be worn over and over. I love this little romper because it appears to be a dress but it’s not. SUPER cute! Rompers are the best, but I have learned to not go crazy with all sorts of patterns of flowers. Don’t get me wrong, I love patterns and flowers. But have learned not to over do it.

Thanks for hanging in there with me as I shuffle through this so called life. I am doing my best to post at least once per week. Please know that my blog isn’t simply a collection of pictures, but a collection of love. I care for my readers and people. The absolute best is hearing how my story helped you or how you gained inspo from one of my outfits! That is what gives me the MOST joy!

Keep shining babes!

Destroyed Denim + Blue Velvet Booties + Department of Veteran Affairs

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 everyone! I hope all is well! I am back this week with another post as promised! My apologies that I can’t post as often as I would like too. I am battling with some health issues, and fatigue. I am hoping that I will start feeling better soon, and dying to have the energy that I once had back! I am praying that I can see a Neuropath a few hours away who is supposed to be one of the best! Nothing yet, but still hopeful. 

N-E-Way, I was able to get out with my mini human this weekend. That kid dies to get out every weekend. He wanted to spend some of his Christmas money on “Black Friday’ Deals! I don’t think there are really any “Black Friday” deals. Only “STEALS”. Get it! Ha! We found a few things in H&M, but I am always suspect of their sizing. I always recommend sizing up at H&M. Hopefully I can get some of the stuff I bought posted before it sells out. I am usually dead to the world by early afternoon. My fatigue has been outrageous.

So about this outfit! I love wearing ALL BLACK! I added the camo jacket just to shake things up a bit. CAMO seems to be all the rave lately. I bought this jacket a while back from the mens section at GAP, and sized down. Now you know my secret! I don’t think anyone can go wrong with all black! I added a red lip, and #boom! I dropped a few funny pictures of myself including the first picture. Sometimes the faces that I make kill me! I can never seem to stop talking. Ha! Real life isn’t perfect, nor my photos or my life.

Hey ya’ll! I hope all is well with everyone. We are almost to Friday so that is always a good thing right? I have LITERALLY had a Doctor’s appointment’s everyday this week! Such a drain on my LIFE! N-E-Way, I am incorporating aspects of fall into my outfits, but to TBH it is still blazing in Texas. I see women wearing knee high boots, and think HOW? LIKE how? It’s 90 degrees outside! The Things we do for fashion! So this little dress is the BEST! So flattering, and you can easily dress it up with a pair of heels. My DRESS is only $14.99!!!!! I paired my look with a pair of booties. My booties have a scuffed up look, am I RIGHT? I can’t remember if they came like that, or if I was extra careless. Either way, I LOVE them imperfect.

My dress can be found HERE! 

Hair – So I consider my hair to be an accessory! I have had a few people ask me about video’s, Youtube is so much different than the blogger platform. But, I am in the R&D phase, but still wanted to give you reviews on my hair. LOL! My actual hair natural hair is in a protective braided style underneath the wig (unit), and I place a wig cap on top on my natural hair to protect it. The #1 question I am asked via direct message, or email is if people of all nationalities can wear units. The answer is YES! And if you see a style you love, get it and werrrrkkkkkkk. If you have really thick or long hair, you will most likely need someone to braid your hair so that the wig will fit appropriately over your natural hair. When people ask you if it’s your “real hair”, simply stare back at them blankly! People STAY on my NERVES with that QUESTION! When a wig is worn correctly people can’t tell where you hairline starts,  or if it is in fact a wig. I know, my stylist knows, but the everyday person DOES not know. The wig also needs to be secure! What gives off a wig-ish appearance is when the wig is moving all around on your head. Don’t be her ya’ll, don’t be her.

I am wearing OUTRE’S LACE FRONT, L PART WIG “NEESHA” in the color DR425. Neesha has a yaki texture, meaning this unit doesn’t have a softer relaxed look. This unit is synthetic, meaning its made up of synthetic fibers not human hair. I LOVE this unit. I love the color, and volume of this unit. I usually don’t step out of my comfort zone, but wanted to give DR425 a go. This unit is kinda hot, but is perfect for fall. I would say, buy this until if you are looking for something different for the fall and not willing to dye, but or change your own hair.

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! From the looks off my #ootd looks like I was having a blast as well too huh??! These pants are so much fun! Sooo, I spend my life on Instagram these days, joking, but not really! I follow #BR (Banana Republic) on Instagram, and they #re-grammed someone wearing these pants! But of course, by the time I was able to click on the link to purchase the pants, they were sold out! Talking about bummed! Literally happens to me every SINGLE TIME! Kidding, its rare, that I really want to purchase something really really bad that sells out. LOL! I can usually wait it out.

So, I moved on with my blogger life! LOL! I had to go to Lulu in the Quarry Market (Lululemon), I needed to grab a few spring essentials, so I figured I would pop in, and pop out really quickly after my workout. My eyes scanned BR as my Jeep passed by to go to LULU, I literally busted a U-turn…oops, parked my jeep, and skipped a few steps into BR.

Insert ******angels singing****, there hung the pants in the very front of the store. Only 3 pairs left! Shit! Of course they only had 3 pairs left. They were one INSTA! What are the odds that they were going to have my size, and seriously, I thought these pants were AMAZE, but I didn’t feel like driving all over SA looking for my size. They had a size 4, 6 and a size 2! TBH, I really don’t wear pants like this too often so I don’t know my slack size. I took all three like the greedy blogger that I am to the dressing room. Guess what I did?! I bought the size 2, and the size 4! LOL! HAaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! They both fit, and I wanted to have a baggy pair, and baggier pair! Call me greedy go ahead. IDC! LOL! I’m really fatter in person, I promise! I have NO I idea how I can fit into a size 2. This pant must run extremely big! The pant’s in the photo are the size 2.

N-E-Way, if you want this pant, you will have to go into the store to see if they have it. It’s not available online, they sold out. I am linking some similar’s that are pretty awesome as well! I won’t leave you hanging..but if you don’t ready my story, and you just click, you may be pretty mad at me! LOL! Your fault not mine! I was able to get snag these babies for 40% off, with an additional 50% off my entire purchase. Or something like that! So, it was a pretty sweet deal! Oh, what a day it was….the day in the life L&E, you know you’re glad you are my friend and follow my journeys on here!

Love ya!
