Good evening, sassies! I hope everyone has been staying warm these past couple of days! By no means has Houston been blown over by a blizzard, but we sure have experienced some chilly temps. I’m a Texas girl. Meaning I don’t do cold. Ever. I was so cold today I ran a bath JUST to stick my feet in because, ya know, it’s freezing outside. Not really but you get the picture! 
We’ve recently been picked up by LikeToKnow.It and it has been so exciting for us! It’s a fast, easy way to shop our favorite finds and we hope all of our followers, old and new, enjoy! In case you don’t know how it works, follow these steps:

We recently ran a poll for some Q&A topics on our Instagram and we are pretty stoked that you all actually had some questions for us! Seriously, y’all are fabulous. We hope this helps anyone that took the time to comment on our post!
When will you be doing a hair tutorial?
We are working on it! It definitely takes sometime filming and getting it just right for all of you, so pretty please be patient with us as we are NOT tech savvy LOL!

How long ago did you start your blog? And best start up tip!
We started Double Shot of Sass almost a year ago and it was exciting, nerve-racking, scary, and exhilarating all at the same time! We really took our time finding a web designer because we were extremely particular on what we wanted our brand to look like. We launched in January 2015 and we never looked back. It has been the best adventure for us. 
Our best start up tip is to be picky and to be patient! All things that are good take time and it’s important to realize it’s not a race– it’s a journey and every milestone is crucial in your growth as a blogger! Perfection doesn’t happen overnight and that’s okay! 
What are your “go to” products on your hair? From shampoo to styling tools?
WOW! This is going to take awhile 🙂 So, our favorite shampoo & conditioner is by Moroccan Oil! They have quite a few different types for certain hair textures (hydrating, moisturizing, smoothing, and volumizing) and we are avid fans! It’s a little pricey but well worth it! We also LOVE their styling products! And for styling tools we love Hot ToolsBombay, and CHI.  
What kind of camera do y’all use? And editor?
We use a Canon Rebel T1i with a 50 mm lens! And honestly, we edit all of our pictures on our phone with the Afterlight app! I told y’all, we are not tech savvy!
What are your can’t live without beauty products?
If I was stranded, I would want my Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and Nars Radiant Creamy concealer!
So there’s all the main questions we were asked and we hope we answered them all to our best ability! Stay tight for a hair tutorial, it’s coming your way very soon!
X, K

Happy Friday! This week was amazing to say the least! A year ago our goal was to get LikeToKnow.It for our blog/Instagram and it HAPPENED! We are so beyond excited that we are affiliated with them and it is such a big step in us reaching out to all of you! If you’re not familiar with using it, click the link and sign up  to receive our favorite items within each post and you get to shop! Pretty cool, huh? We think so! And our exciting week doesn’t end there! Last night, K’s company that she works for, Sunkissed and Made Up, did hair & make up for a Hayley Paige Fashion Show in Houston! Let us just tell you, it was an absolute dream to be a part of! Sometimes I have to pinch myself that I get to work with such influential #girlbosses and I couldn’t be more grateful!
We loved these day-to-night looks, they are both perfect for on the go during a crazy work day! You can easily throw on some heels for date night and look changes! Enjoy!

Planet Blue Houston Look 5

For our final PB look, we channeled our inner Khaleesi (we thought the dragons would be too much so they stayed home). Kailey’s top is made by For Love & Lemons, and was super gorgeous in person. Literally the pictures do not do it justice. Hailey’s look was incredibly dreamy, and it would be perfect for a bachelorette party, bridal shower, engagement pictures…basically anything bridal. One of us needs to get married so we have an excuse to put this beauty back on (JK…sorta).
Overall, we could not brag enough on Planet Blue and its new Houston storefront. For our lovely locals, this store is five stars with sweet as sugar girls working the floor. The manager, Alicia, is as lovely as she is gorgeous, and it was an absolute pleasure to collaborate with her. If you’re more of an in-person shopper and live in the Houston area, we highly recommend making the trip to the new River Oaks District and stopping in. The styles and designs they offer are one of a kind, and you will not be disappointed! 
We hope that everyone’s year is off to a wonderful start, and we can’t wait to share all of the super-duper exciting things that are happening in the very near future. We truly can’t thank each of you enough, and we love getting to hear from y’all!

Here’s another look at our super fun collaboration we did with Planet Blue. The top is Blue Life, and it is PB’s in house brand. This look was so fun to shoot! It had a modern 1920s feel to it, but with a whole lot of edge! We can’t wait to show you the final look of this collaboration we did! There’s nothing like working with Houston-based companies. We are huge advocates for showing some local love.

Happy Monday! This is H’s last week before she officially begins her last semester as a senior! Exciting things happening in 2016 for the both of us! We’ve been crazy busy working on upcoming projects, traveling, getting back to business after the holidays, and finding new inspiration! The beginning of the year is always our favorite for the main reason of reflecting on the previous year and setting goals for the new! Because without growth, there is no moving forward! And that being said, get your life together, people! It’s a phenomenal feeling!
We are so excited to share our third looks from our Planet Blue collaboration! We love K’s babydoll shift dress with her all-time favorite fringe booties! You could easily dress this look up with heels and more jewelry! H’s look is more on the edgy side for us but we are OBSESSED! You can’t go wrong with embellished trimmed sleeves and leather leggings! We hope you enjoy this post as much as we loved styling it!
