Sunday Supper

It’s our first week back to school, and let us just tell y’all, we are exhausted. During the break we always kept busy with work, shooting, and catching up with friends that are going to school out of town, but something about waking up to go to school is just not as easy. On a much less mature note, we would much rather spend our money on pretty things rather than textbooks. Can we get an amen for that?
Last Sunday night, we wore these looks to dinner at Blue Fish On The Bayou with our fiery, redheaded momma. We are huge sushi lovers, and we can thank our mom for not tolerating picky eaters in our house. Seriously. We ate with chopsticks even without cheaters before kindergarten. Our mother taught us well. 
 Hailey’s top was purchased at Anjouil’s Boutique, but it was only an in store item. They have their phone number on their website, and do offer over the phone purchases along with free shipping. However, we did tag a similar top in our outfit details. Also, we are loving Hailey’s necklace by Sweet Tea Jewels. We are obsessed with anything druzy, and this is such a perfect statement piece to have in your wardrobe. Kailey’s shoes are Steve Madden, but they are no longer in stock. This is a true tragedy because we literally get complimented on them every time we wear them. We think every gal needs to have a grey heel of some sort, so we linked a pretty close pair in the outfit details. 

Case of The Blues

 First things first! We could not say thank you enough to the outpouring of love and support we have received since the launch of Double Shot of Sass! These past few days have been nothing short of amazing, and we are so thankful that the blog has had such a great first start. We look forward to seeing what 2015 has in store for us!
Last weekend we decided to hit the town (regardless of how FREEZING Houston has been the past few days) for brunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Drexel House. It’s located in Highlands Village on Westheimer, and their salmon lox baguette is to die for! On that note, if you’re ever interested in a fabulous brunch and in the Houston area, you definitely need to check them out.
We unintentionally had a slew of blue accents in both of our outfit, and we definitely played the twin card that day. In regards to our outfit details, H’s shoes in leopard are no longer available, but Steve Madden still carries that style so please take a deep, calming breath. Also, H’s sweater was purchased at the Banana Republic outlet, and they do not have an online store. We tagged a similar sweater at the regular Banana Republic in its place.

Top 10 Beauty Picks

1 | 2 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 9 | 10
 We are frantically putting together some beauty tutorials for all of you sassy folks, but until then, we have put together our top ten beauty picks! Since we’ve started our Instagram, we have continually been asked on what our daily products are. Although we are not the official authority of how to be lovely (thanks, Funny Face), these are our morning go-tos. We know it’s hard to invest in your makeup, but sometimes paying a little extra can go a long way! A lot of times we pair these with our drugstore finds like Covergirl and other brands, and it truly makes all of the difference. 
For everyday foundation, Nars Sheer Glow (1) is a must. Sometimes we switch it out with their matte finish foundation when we’re a little oily (Hey, we’re human!). The coverage is awesome without it making your face cakey.
We love a good mud face mask, and Glam Glow (2) is our favorite! Also, it doubles as an exfoliator, and really gets down to business in our pores. The best part is that it doesn’t make your face dry after use. (We use this about every two weeks.)
If we were dropped on a deserted island, we would definitely request our Anastasia Brow Powder (3) at the very least. Yes, possibly dramatic, but its’s really that good. The powder duo gives you the option of going lighter or darker so your brows constantly compliment your skin tone or hair.
We firmly believe that every girl needs to have an Urban Decay Naked palette (4). That is all.
Before we put on any type of product on our eyelids, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion (5) is a must! There’s nothing worse than spending time on your eyeshadow and eyeliner, and then it gets all smudgy and messed up by the end of the day. 
Another one of our favorite eyeshadow palettes is Too Face’s Natural Eye palette (6). The colors are gorgeous, and there’s so many combinations you can use to give you a day to night look.
A lot of you lovely people have asked what kind of face makeup we use for our shoots, and Bare Minerals veil powder (7) is our favorite! It is a heavier look in person, but if you’re in the market for bridal, senior, engagement, or “just because you’re fabulous” portraits then we highly recommend this powder. 
We both have really volatile skin, and Clinique Moisture Surge (8) keeps our skin in check. The best part is that the jar will last us a whole year, and when you’re spending money on a moisturizer that’s a little pricey, it’s nice to know that you won’t have to make another purchase like that for awhile.
Can we please talk about the Nars cheek palette (9)?! When we feel extra pale, we like to brighten up our cheekies by mixing the three blushes together, AND when we feel extra sassy we’ll add the sparkly highlighter to our cheek bones.  
For years we have used Buxom Lash Mascara (10) to give us the big batters without having to use falsies. We usually pair it with our Covergirl Lash Exact Mascara to make it go a little further.

After months of anticipating this momentous occasion, we are proud to be debuting our baby, Double Shot of Sass! For many years we have idolized so many talented bloggers, and we are so excited to begin this journey! We plan to share everything from fashion, beauty, and anything pretty/inspirational. On that note, please email us if you have anything special in mind for us to cover in future posts! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for taking a look at our blog, and we hope that y’all enjoy!
  So last weekend, we took a trip to the Houston Museum District. It truly is one of the most entertaining areas in Houston, and not to mention it’s easy on the eyes.  Seriously. Everything is just so pretty. However, it was dang cold that day so for our looks we wanted to be cozy and cute. Kailey didn’t exactly nail the practical or cozy part down, but this look was just too good to keep cooped up at home. For college students, we are HUGE advocates for saving a few dollars here and there. So when we found these Valentino spin-offs, “no” just wasn’t in our vocabulary (HELLO, please feast your eyes on the price!). Hailey’s sweater from Anjouil’s Boutique is unfortunately sold out (we apologize for your tears), but we have attached a similar one in the outfit details.
