Fashion and Football: My Double Life


Hey all-
For my loyal readers who follow me on all social media, you know that I live a very double life. Fashionista on the weekdays and wanna be Barry Sanders on the weekend ( well it would actually be Deion Sanders since he played Corner). Regardless, my weekends are devoted to sweat, knee braces and the good old pigskin. This year I decided to join all women's flag football team along with playing on my co-ed team that I previously posted pics of before. All women's is ALOT more physical and has ALOT more contact because we are allowed to block in the backfield etc..... Since I just joined the team, I dont get a ton of playing time but I am quickly learning. In this game, my coach put me in at corner and they ran trips on one side. One girl ran a jet out to the sideline, the other ran a post route and the last girl ran a fly. Since I was playing cornerback, I stayed with the chick who ran the fly and that left the girl running the post more open than she should have been. I figured our safety would take care of her but......... my coach didnt realize all of that and just thought I didnt cover correctly and took me out. I pretty much was HEATED that he took me out because I had played my part. So needless to say I had some words for him which I rarely do because like I said I am still learning the all women's game and I respect authority but Im a different person on that football field. Well next time he put me back in the game I was adamant to stay in so I split the difference between the slot receiver and the wide out and got an INTERCEPTION!!!! (you can do a little dance now for me) I had some great blockers on this play and in one pic you can see how a girl got LAID out on her back (lol)... Here are the pics that my boyfriend took..... I realize its not a fashion post but I wanted to share my weekend life with you all because I consider you all more than just readers but my friends as well.... ENJOY!!!!!






pancake...........




shes getting blocked and still holding on to my arm

this is where I got punched (yes that happens on a regular basis on the field)

I really did NOT want to go down... home girl is not even going for my flags... straight up tackle lol

My football stats so far: (co ed and all women's combined)
4 sacks
1 touchdown
29 flags pulled
5 Interceptions


I MUST step it UP!!!!!

it's an enjoyable sport & i do miss being on the field, me n the girls will come out to see you play; even if just for a bit; let us know when/where you play.  anyone that says this sport aint physical - just don't know any betta...it's rough.  but sounds like you are learning and playn well.
