Coffee Date with Bree Warner

I'm pretty excited to be having "coffee" with Bree Warner. It wasn't until earlier this year that we finally got to meet in person after being friends and talking through social media. Bree is badass and class wrapped up into one amazing and inspiring woman.

NRA Carry Guard Training

Last week I had the awesome opportunity to attend an NRA Carry Guard Training down in Dallas, TX with a great group of women. If you’re not familiar with the NRA Carry Guard training, it's a program designed to be the “gold standard in concealed carry training to prepare responsible citizens who legally carry to effectively confront today’s evolving conflict environment.”

Gingham Shirt

This is me trying to branch out from always wearing a t-shirt; it won't last long I'm sure. LOL. I think this outfit is a great example of adding a new piece to freshen up your current (aka old) wardrobe. We've all been there where we have felt a bit 'blah' about what is hanging in our closet

Monthly Favorites

Moving right along through April and the bus doesn't seem to be slowing down. Sometimes I wish I could just press the pause button on life and time to play catch up but that's not how life works. So I'll be trekking right along, tackling my to-do list one item at a time.

Concealed Carry Cover Garments

I'm going to miss the days when concealing doesn't require more than just throwing an outer layer over whatever shirt/top I might be wearing. However, until then I'll keep grabbing my light layers when I can.

Creating A Personal Protection Plan

Being self-reliant starts with a mindset of wanting to be prepared. What's your plan for keeping yourself and your family safe? Do you even have one? It's not just for when you aren't at home, it's for when you are home as well because I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no such thing as a "safe-neighborhood."

Easy Statement Pieces

I’ve got a busy next two months coming up with some travel which means I’ve got to be on top of my game as far getting sh*t done while also not crashing and burning. I will definitely be running on copious amounts of coffee but I’m not complaining one bit.

Minimize Concealed Carry Printing with a Camisole

Little did I know that the camisole that I've been wearing for years under my tops would come in handy in my concealed carry life. For years, I've always worn a tank top under most of my tops. I used to only do it in the winter when wearing sweaters to keep the itchy fabric from bothering my skin but then I soon started doing it with other tops.
