Coffee Date | No. 6

Happy Friday friends! How was your week? All good I hope. Super pumped it's Friday & this weather is killing me in a good way. We are actually having some real Spring weather, albeit in June but it's better than humid & hot. It's that kind of weather that makes me want to pop some bottles or sip on some cocktails while sitting outside. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it lasts for a few more days, weeks would be great but that might be asking too much.

Do you have your coffee ready for our #CoffeeDate? Great, let's chat it up.


I'm looking for cute white sandal options for summer that don't break the bank, do you have any suggestions? White sandals for summer are so stylish and definitely get you into that summer spirit. Here are few options under $50: Halogen, Arturo Chiang, BCBGeneration, & Joe's. And a few options between $50 - $100: J. Crew (my fav), Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, & Soludos.

What apps do you use to edit your Instagram photos? I mainly use VSCO & Priime. Both have a ton of editing options such as adjusting brightness, temperature, saturation, etc. and lots of great filters that range from subtle to dramatic. I like Priime because it suggests filters based on interpreting the colors & light of the photo. I sometimes also use PS Express to soften/reduce noise on a photo.  I use this mostly if my photo shows a lot more skin like on my legs as it helps to smooth out the skin. No one wants to see razor bumps. #AmIRight 

Do you only shoot your HK VP9 at the range or do you shoot with any other firearm? Right now I'm only shooting my VP9.  I've shot some of the husbands handguns but I'm really trying to get comfortable and skilled with my own handgun.  I thinks it's important to know all the intricacies of your own gun, how it shoots, and how it behaves. 

Where are your Nike shoes you were wearing from snapchat? They are the Nike Flyknit Racers.  These are only available in men sizes so I bought a 7.5 mens.  My normal women's size is an 8.5.

How often have you had to use the emergency kit you carry in your purse? Luckily very rarely and that is a good thing.  I've used a couple of band-aids here & there but that's about it. I haven't had a need for some of the other items.  Just because the items don't get used daily, weekly, or monthly doesn't mean I'm going to stop carry them. After all it's for emergencies and the point of the kit is if you some essentials for when you need them.

Thanks you so much for sending in your questions! You can submit questions via comments below, the contact pageemail or through my social media channels (InstagramTwitterSnapchat (stylemetactical). 

Cheers to the weekend!
