We’re proud to announce a newly completed, easy to navigate women’s’ boutique site for the BODACIOUS BUCKLES BOUTIQUE in Sugar Land, Texas! What a name, right? There’s a really good story behind it. This mother-daughter owned, vintage inspired & boho chic boutique opened 6+ years ago on the hills of Round Top, Texas. They originally handcrafted and sold belt buckles created from estate jewelry and eclectically funky accessories found at various markets. The buckles, while western in general shape and appearance, were truly one of a kind pieces. Some of our friends bought 5-6 of these bodacious buckles in various shades and styles of bling. I have a unique turquoise and coral buckle made by BBB as I had the pleasure of being around during the start up of this business since our kiddos were in preschool together at the time.
Sugar Land’s own LeAnn Hill has grown what was a little craft show, booth filling “company” into a full-fledged women’s’ boutique carrying the likes of Old Gringo Boots, pieces from the Johnny Was Collection, as well as items from the Free People Collection. The really beautiful thing about this family owned boutique, is the personal commitment of the owners to “knowing their stuff.”
The boho chic style is a great concept to me. It’s pretty, flowy, girly, yet comfortable, reasonable and stylish. Bodacious Buckles Boutique carries 70+ famous brands, therefore you can assemble a truly unique ensembles that you can’t just get from a place like Macy’s or Dillards. Complete outfits can be assembled in ONE PLACE. That’s my idea of a shopping trip – easy! From the footwear (Old Gringo Boots) to the jewelry (like Wax Insignia) to the undergarments and outwear….it’s all there.
Stop in and visit this cute little house just off Gunther Street in Old Sugar Land and experience Bodacious Buckles Boutique for yourself. Ask for LeAnn. Tell her Mel sent you!
After a long day of content marketing as a Social Media/Internet Marketing Specialist, all I want to do is relax. Sometimes, that may mean just watching my favorite TV shows from the comfort of my couch. However, other times, I want to wash my stress away by being pampered at a local spa.
One time, after doing some research on the best medspa’s in Houston, I decided to give the Houston skin rejuvenation specialists at Pina Cosmetic Surgery a chance. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.
When I came in for my appointment for a basic spa facial, I was cheerfully greeted by the receptionist, who then instructed me to fill out some information for the aesthetician. After that was completed, no more than a few minutes had passed when I heard a voice say “David.” It was the aesthetician letting me know she was ready for me. As we walked back to the room where the facial would take place, I was a little apprehensive. “What if this hurts, I muttered to myself?”
Finally, we arrived at the room, and after changing clothes to get more comfortable, it was time for the facial to begin. This is where the aesthetician blew my mind. Instead of the facial being painful at every touch, it was the exact opposite. She was gentle with every touch, and it was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life. I would definitely go back.
Just turn on the news any day of the week and you’ll hear something about famous personalities and their high dollar divorces…..it’s seems to be a daily “affair.” No pun intended.
I had NO IDEA all the different types of family law, until we built a website for a client in Richmond, Texas in the ever exploding, Fort Bend County. With all new websites, we interview the client in person. Most of the time, there are two of us just in case someone misses something. Two sets of ears are always better than one. As I was taking notes, I found myself continuing to say, “I didn’t know that. I didn’t know.” As a website design “manager”, understanding a client’s business is so incredibly important. It involves well-honed listening skills.
Mr. Van Slyke – Richmond, Texas Divorce Lawyer is well known in the Fort Bend County area as a family lawyer. I had NO IDEA a divorce attorney is considered a family lawyer at the beginning of this project. When I started putting two and two together, it made sense. With divorce, comes visitation for children, and collection of child support monies. I just don’t understand why people wouldn’t choose, ONE attorney that can handle it all. Like Lester Van Slyke. Nice, seasoned gentleman with impecable manners….and people in the area talk so highly of him. I’ve learned much from this project….and I’ve learned that people should work very hard at NOT getting divorced until they KNOW it’s … THE END!
If you spend any time talking to people sitting in hospital waiting rooms, you will hear tale after tale of suspected Medical Malpractice complications. The true difficulty is that it can be hard to determine if a bad result was simply a bad result or a true medical mistake or medical malpractice. I know a Houston Medical Malpractice Attorney who always tells me if you suspect something might be medical malpractice, then consult with a Medical Malpractice Attorney just in case.
These specialized personal injury attorneys and their staff are able to conduct a thorough investigation and consult with other medical professionals to discover the truth of the complication. If they obtain evidence of Medical Malpractice, the Houston Medical Malpractice Attorney can use that evidence to prosecute the offending medical professionals on your behalf. It is always better to have it investigated and looked into rather than sit back and do nothing. An experienced Medical Malpractice Attorney will work hard to get you the just compensation you deserve to aid in your recovery.
In my last apartment, I discovered a hazardous condition in the common laundry room on the first floor. Several of the residents complained to the office of the problem, but it was months before it was finally fixed. After reading an article about Premise Liability, I realized the apartment complex was extremely lucky no one was injured while in the laundry room.
Houston Premise Liability laws permit recovery by an injured party who was hurt due to a dangerous condition on a property in which the owners had a duty to maintain a safe environment. In the case of my apartment complex, I believe the apartment complex would have had difficulty defending any Premise Liability claim because it could be proven they had actual knowledge of the dangerous condition before a hypothetical injury occurred. The article I read suggested premise liability cases are not usually that cut and dry and that it was best to find a Premise Liability attorney to represent you.
Houston car accidents have been a dime a dozen around here lately because of the weather. Everyday carelessness compounded by weather, Houston auto accident attorneys have been busy because wrecks on the Houston freeways and roads are commonplace. Are you prepared?
In the event of an automobile accident, there are a few items that you should always have in your car. First and foremost, your auto insurance card – that is current, a camera of some type, something to write with, and a pad of paper. And patience.
If you are unfortunate and end up being the victim of a car accident in Houston, take a deep breath, and find your patience. Make sure everyone is not injured. If someone is injured, call 911 immediately. 911 will call emergency responders as needed. Make sure you and your passengers are safe and out of harms way. If you are the victim of the auto accident, make sure you get the drivers license number of other driver, their car insurance information and take some pictures of BOTH CARS.
If you run into any issues with the other driver, again, keep yourself and passengers safe…and call an auto accident attorney immediately. They will need the facts, the pictures, and the information. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Good luck and hopefully you will not need an attorney. As far as the car insurance goes, it’s the law. You MUST carry the state required insurance.
Fatality figures just came out for the state of Texas. The numbers of deaths on the job have risen in Texas despite numbers fell 17% across the nation. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the State’s durability during the recession was part of the issue despite more auditors looking for safety violations out in force. Work-related deaths, in the state of Texas, totaled 480, which was up 4% from last year. Houston’s work-related deaths totaled 118, up 5% from last year. Now keep in mind, these are work-related DEATHS, not work-related injuries or injuries on the job. WOW!
What I was really interested in was the categories. As I expected, the highest numbers of work-related deaths was in transportation-related incidents. For Texas, that total was 163. The NEXT category, was actually assaults and violent acts. By employees? Really? While discussing this article, my husband asked a great question. As a business owner, how to work to prevent assaults and violent acts? Slips and falls, okay – we can work to prevent those by altering the surfaces everyone works and walks on. But assaults and violent acts? Still amazed.
The other categories tracked by the Bureau of Labor Statistics were as follows: Falls on the job, contact with objects and equipment, exposure to harmful substances or environments, fire and explosions and “other.” I’m not sure I even want to know what falls into the “other category.
Children are so quick to find dangerous situations faster than you can identify them, especially when you are out and about away from home. While at a Houston business one of my children touched an exposed live wire that conducted electrical current through her hand. Thankfully, my daughter was only stunned with a sore finger but was fine. When we go out now, I watch them with an eagle eye; trying to see potential hazards before my children find and play with them.
I do know that if my child is seriously injured out away from home, there is an amazing Houston premise liability attorney who will fight for my family. Brian Jensen has been aggressively representing injured Houston families for over 24 years. There are many variables to assert a valid legal claim for premise liability. Jensen has the experience and knowledge to lead the fight for full and just compensation on behalf of my family.
