Hell On Wheels Roller Derby League

Hell On Wheels Roller Derby
Our Head Coach, teammates and Myself

I'm not sure if I've posted much about roller derby on my blog, but that will definitely change. So let me introduce my team to you! We are the Hell On Wheels Roller Derby League. We are based out of Fort Hood Texas and we are a Rec. League. What that means is that we don't tie skaters down to the team. Because we are a recreational team, we are not strict with things like attendance requirements. We also invite everyone to come and skate with us! We practice twice a week (Monday and Wednesday) from 7pm-9:30pm.

Please like our Facebook to keep up to date on what the team is up to!! We appreciate everyone and we love you for the support!

We are getting ready for our first scrimmage which will be on September 21st! We will be going against Marble Falls Night Mares! I am so proud of my teammates, they have been working so hard and are lookin' good! check out some photos of them in action!

Etsy or Storenvy I can't decide



Hello all, I've been stuck in a bit of a dilemma! I've posted before on how I make stuff. All kinds of stuff. Everything from pillows, plushies, magnets, coin purses etc. Like i said, a lot of stuff. Actually, here are some examples of the stuff I make!

Avengers Coin Purse
Strawberry Shortcake Coin Purse
Over sized stud earrings
Harley Quinn Pillow
Lil' Scarecrow 



I first started listing my items on Storenvy. I wanted to try out their website because it was free to list items and free to sell. But after a while of not doing too well, I started considering Etsy. I follow a lot of creative people on Instagram that sell their goods through Etsy, so I finally decided to try it out. I've only had my Etsy shop up and running for maybe two whole days. So I don't really have a lot to base differences off of, but I'd love to hear from people out there. Do you use Etsy? Do you use Storenvy? Do you sell items strictly through Instagram? I'm curious about what your experiences have been!

5 reason why I love Roller Derby



I play roller derby. I love playing roller derby. Any chance I get, I talk about roller derby. Yes, I am obsessed. And also broken. About a month ago during practice, I broke my leg. I didn't just break it, I BROKE it. Two Breaks and three fractures to be exact. This was the first injury I've had during my fresh meat phase, and also the very first broken bone I've ever had.

I am totally out of commission for a little while even though my injury is healing quickly. But once I am healed and cleared to go, You'd better believe I will be back with a vengeance! So in the spare time that I've got (and Ive got a lot of it) I started thinking about derby and my team and I definitely came to the conclusion that roller derby is one of my many obsessions. I absolutely love it!

I'm just listing these here, they are in no particular order

1) Being a part of an organized sport. I played a few sports in high school but then I went to a 2 year community college, so there were no sports activities. After college, unless you train for Olympics, or are drafted to be on a major team, there's little left for you. Finding roller derby has reignited my competitiveness!

2) Playing a sport is a physical activity, which I cannot get enough of. I love the feeling of sweating like a pig. I know that sounds kinda gross, but I know that if I am sweating profusely at the end of practice, I've been pushing through it and working hard. My teammates are always encouraging each other to push harder.

3) Having fun or nostalgia for some. When I was a kid, everyone went to the skating rink to skate. I think I may have gone two times. I didn't know how to skate. I was deathly afraid of skating. I tried a few times and either ended up falling and crawling my way to the side, or just slamming into the rails. Now, I'm still not that great at skating, but its fun! It makes me think of all the things I missed out on when I was a kid, and it makes me happy to finally do it!

4) Promoting. Street teaming used to be one of the things I LOVED doing. Promoting bands, clubs, bars, that was my thing. Because our team is new, we've got to get the word out. Honestly promoting your league is important regardless of how big, small, new or old it is. But I LOVE promoting. Blogging, social media, you name it I am trying to cover it. Plus its for something that I am so passionate about and I love so much!

5) Camaraderie. After my first practice (which I was SO nervous to go to), I felt like I was a part of a family. There were no attitudes, no one was mean or rude, everyone was nice, sweet, and hilarious! Everyone was having fun and I loved the atmosphere. When I got home, I found my teammates on Facebook and I think they out number the amount of friends I had before! Everyone talks online, makes plans, its so awesome. The support everyone gives each other is amazing. I feel like I've found something that is so special to me. I love roller derby and I love my derby family!

Makeup: Its All in the Eyes


Eyes are the gateway to the soul, why not give people a sexy and dramatic eye to gaze into, right? I love dramatic eyes, and my favorite eye makeup is the cat eye. Seriously, take a look at these eyes and tell me that they aren't sexy:

Here are a few examples of my own cat eye makeup! All of these looks are for everyday daytime looks, so they aren't too dramatic, but they can easily be transformed into a more dramatic look!
