Dive into Trash!

Yet another doc about consumption, but would you do it if you could? Dive discusses the waste that grocery stores around the U.S. get rid of daily and possible solutions made by a simple process of separation of what can and cannot be for sale on the shelves. It gets inside and you have to wonder why we waste so much food! We waste as much as we eat. Isn’t that alarming?!

Juice On!

I care about the health of all my friends here on FB and at work so I want to share some knowledge about the power of veggies in your diet!

If you or someone you know has cancer, diabetes, migraines, high cholesterol, or any kind of health issue I urge you to watch this documentary on Netflix. Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead has got me tied to veggies more than I ever have in my life. If you knew me growing up, and even today, I was always a picky eater. now it’s changed for the better after seeing this, and I want to share these things that I have learned along the way.

I hear stories every other day at work about people sick and diagnosed to live 6 months and they live 2 yrs more! It’s amazing what pure veggies can do. Even organics as well. If there wasn’t any technology about how to “process” food, we would be eating fruits and veggies.
Give fruits and veggies a go or even juice them. They won’t kill you.


The Importance of Getting Swabbed

In the past few months I’ve learned of some friends that have silently been going through the pains of chemotherapy. Shocked just as they are, I decided to become aware of the things they needed. Bone Marrow. I was at an event held at Sunset Station and DKMS was set up at a table getting people swabbed.

It was simple and clean. They approached you with the idea that a simple swab from the inside of your cheeks would be able to identify you as a participant for bone marrow transplants and donations. It was free and easy to sign up. Imagine how you can feel about helping others with just a simple swab. I encourage you to do so whenever you have the chance and be informed of donating bone marrow. Dont let it be long for your health or the health of your loved ones and friends to find out how you can help.

June First Friday

June”s First Friday sale was awesome! Metallic Beat checked in at the Jalapeno off South Flores and Durango where there was bands, Blue Moon and Miller High Life beers, vendors selling art and jewelry, and a mobile kitchen parked on the grounds.

Next was good ole Blue Star and a check in at the Bike Shop. It turned into a free for all as soon as someone said, “where them earrings at?”  Happening now and always every time you purchase any 2 items from Metallic Beat, you will save $5. Find me on First Fridays and you will save double if not more! If at anytime you feel unhappy with a product, contact Brittany at metallicbeat@gmail.com and I will fix the problem. Feel comfort in knowing you are purchasing a quality product from Metallic Beat! All earrings are made by hand and may have few color changes; beads may be dark at top instead of at the bottom, but will be the color scheme of your choice.

Girls get your earrings on and Boys get ’em for your girl! Thank you to all who made it out to the First Friday Beat Sale! Stay tuned for July’s First Friday event with new designs and a Firecracker of a weekend sale. July’s FF is the 1st followed by the 2nd annual Cogs and Stripes Alleycat-San Antonio happening at the Blue Star Arts Complex! Check out last year’s edit by Danny and Bryson!

Feel the Beat!

Forever 21 recently debuted their new “Twist” line I came across a couple weeks ago. Its cute and reminds me of a Betsey Johnson influence. Here are a couple of outfits I thought were pretty cool and gave me adrenaline to be more creative and active.

Also found out that the brunette is Kendal Jenner in her first big photoshoot. Thats nice to see her out there.

This style of clothing I always think of when I hear The Gaslight Anthem’s “Old White Lincoln”.
