Blogging Break

October 29, 2013

So I have been resting & healing lately from a surgery I had last week, hence the no posts lately. I am okay and surgery went well, but I won't be able to do a real post again until next week.. I'm hoping to at least post a pic of the kiddos on Halloween night Friday morning! We shall see how that actually goes... Momma might not make it very far trick or treating! 
So, until then...

Friday Faves - Cowboy Boots

October 18, 2013

It seems like every year around this time I realize I need to invest in new cowboy boots. Yes I live in Texas & that seems to be formal wear here, but in all honesty I pretty much only wear them to work. I work in a place that is surrounded by cars & tools, so they kindly ask us to wear some type of boot for safety. For me it's perfect. They look great with jeans & a cute top, plus they are super comfy to wear all day long.
Downside is that they don't last more than a year due to wearing them 10 hr days 5 days a week! So I am officially on the hunt for a new pair... here are my favs.

Ariat® Women's Sassy Brown Heritage X-Toe Western Boots

OMG I am in love with these darn boots. I love the light blue stitching and of course I have to have snip toe. I've heard Ariats are extremely comfortable, so these would be awesome in my collection!

Old West Distressed Leather Cowgirl Boots - Snip Toe 

Old West are the boots I own now. They're definitely more affordable & are very comfy. I love the distressed look of these & the darker color of brown. The ones I have now are a tan color and you can see every thing that gets on them. Especially when it rains!

Ariat Hacienda Side Zip Riding Boots - Snip Toe 

Okay these are amazing boots. Hello skinny jeans! I love the stitching and length! Adorable!

I was on the hunt for a lighter bronzing powder for the Fall/Winter time. Something to help contour but not make me look like I fake baked all week. Then I came upon this...

Physicians Formula Magic Mosaic Multi Colored Custom Powder
I love how it contours yet isn't overly bronze (or orange for that matter!) It's perfect for those of us with a little fairer skin for the cooler temps. 

Welcome to my newest obsession!



October 14, 2013

I've never seen a better game this year and haven't been this excited for the Horns in a LONG TIME...

Oh Hell Yeah Texas beat OU!!! 

Eric was literally jumping up & down the entire game! 
It was a good weekend in the Munoz household! 


Weekend Plans

October 11, 2013

We're going to get into full Halloween mode this weekend at the casa. We let the kiddos put out a few decorations last weekend, but plan on adding more this weekend.
This is also TX vs OU weekend in Dallas. It's supposed to pour here & up there for the game, so we are planning a nice Saturday afternoon inside cheering the Horns onto victory! (A girl can dream!) So, we'll be indulging in our favorite beer...

And having a great time in the process! Hook 'Em Horns!!

2nd Want This Week

October 9, 2013

I'm on a roll here people! My hair is my biggest money sucker in my life. Highlights, low lights, shampoo & conditioners, the list goes on and on. Here's the thing, my hair gets "used to" products pretty damn easily, especially shampoo & conditioners, so I'm really excited to try these next...

Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Shampoo & Conditioner
It smelled wonderful and really does nourish and condition my hair perfectly! It's also on order for me thank goodness!!



October 8, 2013

So I've heard about this product all over the internets & when I went to get my hair done, my awesome stylist  also tried it in my hair. Let me just say it was amazing! I'm not sure if it was just this or this combined with a shampoo & conditioner I also want! (In tomorrow's post!) 

Pureology Colour Fanatic

So apparently it has 21 benefits, but all I know is that it made my hair soft, shiny, and feeling wonderful for days. My bottle is already on order with my stylist along with tomorrow's want! 



October 7, 2013

I feel like I'm at the point in my life I need a little inspiration to get me through some things.
I found 3 that really hit home for me.

Friday Faves - T-Shirts

October 4, 2013

Let's face it, no matter how much makeup I wear, how much products I shove into my hair, I am deep down a t-shirt and jeans girl. I've been one since I could choose my own clothes. I'd pick those over a cute dress any day. Give me some boots and cute scarf & I'm all set. There's something amazing about a perfect fitting tshirt that makes my heart jump. Here's my absolute favorites...
Target Mossimo
This is my all time favorite t-shirt to wear. I've bought numerous colors, sizes, re-bought them because I wore the last one out... seriously I frickin love these shirts!

Love the slouchy tees and pocket. Only comes in black and white, but still looks super comfy!

I love the length of this shirt. Perfect with a cute cardigan!

Scarf Weather

October 3, 2013

Supposedly there's a great cold front coming to Central Texas Saturday & I am more than happy to welcome it! 95 degree weather in early October doesn't sound like Autumn to me. When the temps finally start dipping down below the 80's I always like to pull out my scarves. And shop for more! Here's a few I'm lusting over...
All my scarves go with brown/neutral colors, so a scarf that can go with black is much needed! I am officially in love with all H&M products right now!

I love all infiniti scarves & this one is right up my alley!

Alas another amazing infiniti scarf I adore... shocking I know!


October 1, 2013

I decided I was sick of my eyeshadows this week. I actually don't wear eyeshadow in the summer time, just liner and mascara and now that the temps are dipping to a freezing cold 88 degrees outside, I was ready for some new shadow. Enter my new favorite...
Rimmel Smokey Brun

I love the colors on this palette. All shimmer no matte, but yet can still make a great neutral smokey lid. Also the color payoff is amazing. I barely put my brush in and got a ton of color on my lids. It's a velvety feeling shadow group as well. Pure greatness & a great price!
