It should be no surprise to you guys that my love for coffee is legit. I figured no better time than now to share some of my favorite things that help make that daily cup that much sweeter.Read More
I use to wear these jeans almost everyday. I go through cycles like that with clothing, shoes, and accessories. It's like I latch on to piece and it's all I want to wear. Is it just me or are you like that too? Well I'm glad I have rediscovered these because it's a nice change to my super tight skinny jeans ;) My legs can finally breath.Read More

I've slowly been embracing high-waisted jeans and also pants as of late. I'm slowly seeing their benefit as they tend to hold everything in. And as I get older, I'm liking that a lot more. I've been pretty selective though at picking the right ones to add to my closet.Read More
I am a big fan of the details. The small details are what sets things apart - not just with clothing but with anything we do in life. Since my clothing always tends to gravitate towards black, the pieces can start to look a bit redundant especially if they don't have a differentiating detail.Read More
The first gun that I purchased was my HKVP9. I mentioned in my last Style Me Concealed post that the VP9 was the gun that I carried until I got my Glock 43. While not always practical, something is better than nothing. When the subcompact version was released, the HKVP9SK, I knew I wanted to add it to my carry choices.Read More
There are many roads that lead us to becoming self-reliant. For some, it unfortunately stems from a bad experience and for others the need happens more naturally. No matter what led you onto the path of self-reliance, I'm just thrilled that you are taking responsibility for your own safety.Read More
I'm often asked about why I carry a full-size gun versus a sub-compact. When I first started carrying, the only gun I owned was my HKVP9. Then I got my Glock 43, which is a great option for carrying concealed.Read More
In episode 9, Amy and Emily have an open discussion on the current events around school security with 3rd grade teacher, Corrie Recchia. The girls discuss their perspective on the need for increased school security and teachers having the option to defend themselves and their students.Read More
I wish I could say that's a wrap on winter but unfortunately I know that's not the case. But I'm taking every opportunity of the days when it's not blistering cold to keep the layers light. This wrap coat is great for those days.Read More
I can't help but sit here and shake my head at some of the things I hear on the news. I intentionally keep this space free from discussing my views on current events, not because I don't have an opinion but because that's not why SMT was created. I want you to feel inspired and encouraged when you come here. However, when I hear public figures preaching the exact opposite of what the mission of SMT stands for I tend to get a little defensive.Read More
In episode 8, Amy and Emily get to know Bree Warner while at the Glock booth during SHOT Show 2018. Bree, a current law enforcement officer and firearms instructor, provides her perspective on how the industry is changing to accommodate more women shooters.Read More
This month's favorites all revolve around beauty products and they were definitely put to the test during SHOT Show. I'm happy to say they all passed with flying colors.Read More
I probably shouldn't even mentioned it because I'm sure I'm going to jinx it but we are having a nice little warm weather wave right now. I'm trying to take advantage of it as much as possibly by sticking to layers instead of heavy coats. Some plaid and a fur vest are easy and do the trick for these odd weather days.Read More
In episode 7, Amy and Emily catch up with Carly Twisselman during SHOT Show at the Springfield Armory booth. You may know Carly from her time with NRA TV, Ride TV, Gun TV, and as a rodeo champion.Read More
I've talked many times about having options when it comes to holsters and that's because each one will fit your needs differently depending on what you decide to wear that day and even what you might be doing. Personally, I've found that when wearing lighter weight pants, for example pants that you would wear to work or pants that have a thinner fabric, that the belly band style holsters work better.Read More
I know we all can relate to feeling like there just aren't enough hours in the day. We all have distractions and other priorities in our lives competing for our attention and some days you wonder how you are going to power through. Lots of coffee comes to mind.Read More
If there is something that I'm not short on it's shoes, specifically ankle boots. I prefer ankle boots over knee high boots. While I do have a couple of pairs of knee high boots, they don't get worn that often. That probably means it's time to send them on to a better home. I find that knee high boots feel more restrictive and don't give my legs room to move or breath. So I always go for ankle boots.Read More
