Pumpkin Spice Lizano

I've said before that one of the not so great things about the Army (or the military in General) is that it brings awesome people into your life, and then rips them away just when you start to mesh. In the short time that I knew Jaimie she's had such an amazing impact on my life. SHE INTRODUCED ME TO PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! She's an awesome soldier and a good person, and I wish her the best as she continues on to her next assignment.

Wishing her and her family safe travels. ♥️

Zulu Cut Crease Visual

Just wanted to show you guys a visual of a look I did this weekend for the beautiful Tyiekia. Unfortunately, I didn't record the entire application. I need a better set up before I can. The space I use isn't really designed for it, as I would be standing in the light. I'll figure something out shortly, though. Hope you guys like it!

D i r t y T h i r t y !

Dress: Pretty Little Thing • Pumps: Christian Louboutin
Milestones are sometimes scary. They remind us of those things we said we'd do, but never really quite got around too. Those things that sometimes can make you feel inadequate, especially when compared to the likes of your peers. This, for me, was NOT that. I sat back and exhaled a sigh of relief; on September 28 I turned 30 years old.

Hair: Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig - Amara
Earlier this month I was almost broken. My car was burglarized yet again and my identity was stolen. I had almost put my entire birthday on the back burner. My priority at the moment was regaining control of the situation and safeguarding whatever else I could in regards to being violated. I was able to replace the stolen items fairly quickly and that definitely helped to ease my mind. Having such an amazing support system also helped tremendously. I was reminded that things are just that: things. I pray we never forget that.

Top & Shorts: TJ Maxx • Sandals: Design
I was able to spend this birthday surrounded by genuine love. There were so many people that played a role in ensuring I felt nothing but appreciation and affection all the way to my core and for that, I am eternally grateful. You all made this special for me. Thank you a thousand times.

Your peace is yours; do with it as you please..

Hard Work is Easy Work

This weekend Jerm's team, the Killeen Trojans, played their first regular season game. Hard work truly pays off! The boys have been conditioning since about April and it definitely showed. They showed up and showed out beating their opponents, the Killeen Cowboys, 28-0. Jeremy played safety and he loved being on the field. I'm super proud of him and can not wait to watch him develop into the football player he is meant to be. His coaches and teammates have affectionately named him J-Dawg and this year we wear the number 28 with pride.

I have the best son. You'll never be able to change my mind.

The Best Parts..

Sometimes you have to force it. You have to fight the urge to lay in bed for days on end and make yourself get up. At times, that break from reality may be what you need, but there comes a time when you have to be real with yourself and realize that too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing. Revisiting the things that brought you joy previously can at times help you overcome whatever you are going through at the moment. Don't allow that weight to sit on your chest forever. Use these last few months of  2018 to further define the person you are meant to be.
