This weekend we turned into twihearts, I wish I could say vampires that would be way more cool, but no sadly my parents are mortals and have no desire to become vampires any time this decade. (LAME) We went to go see the new movie in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn!! It was sooo good, seriously. It was especially nice without all the screaming girls, although I cant say we wouldn't have been one of them. C'mon who doesn't wanna see Jacob without his shirt! We had a great time. Oh and that lovely little lady on the far right. That's Emily (the youngest Castillo) I'm pretty sure y'all have met.
It's that time of year again, the holiday madness has begun. Now that Thanksgiving is over it's time to start thinking about Christmas & yes all those Christmas parties. I usually get stressed out over all the gifts I have to get so I want my holiday hairstyles to be as easy & stylish as possible.
This season its all about the effortless, sexy, classic hair. I guarantee if you rock these five holiday hairstyles @ your next holiday party you'll be the belle of the ball!
Old Hollywood Glam:
Old Hollywood is here to stay & it's so easy to achieve. It's all about elegance mixed with a little sexy.
Think classic & sophisticated. The bouffant is one of those hairstyles that goes great with everything.
Messy curls with lots of volume is a romantic but sexy look, especially for the holidays. The messier the better!
Around the holidays wear anything that sparkles. Especially in your hair, it's a real eye catcher.
Braids are still all the rage from this summer. They work great when you're looking for an east laid back look.
Tutorials are comin' your way soon. I'm so excited to show y'all these looks. They are definitely some of my favorite holiday hairstyles!
Here's to a stylish Christmas & a swanky New Year!
To say that we love Revlon would be an understatement. To say that were addicted to Revlon would pretty much hit it on the nose. We have just about every product that Revlon makes. Eye shadows, lipsticks, lip butters, blush you name it we own it. We were due for a dossier digs so we thought we would share our love for Revlon with you. Please don't judge us, the first step to getting help is to admit you have a problem right? :)
(we have 11 lipsticks)
Fire & Ice- It's the perfect "notice me" color. Every time I wear it I feel like a superstar!
Ravish Me Red- It's a classic gorgeous red. It's my must have lipstick!
Cha Cha Cherry- This color is perfect for every day. It's subtle yet beautiful all at the same time.
Siren- This lipstick is such a nice orangey pink, it was perfect for summer, the nail polish in Siren is also great!
Really Red (Matte)- This is my everyday lipstick, i love the color, the red is so classic!
Wine Not (Matte)- This is such a deep purpley red, it's not my everyday color, but it's great when you want to change it up especially during the fall!
Violet Frenzy- This lipstick is straight up purple, but it's a wearable color, plus when you layer it with a red it takes on a whole other color!
Orange Flip- This is the perfect orangey lipstick for summer or spring time. I love it!
Hot Coral- I practically lived in this color during the summer, its perfect for that pop of color to your face!
Peach Me- I recently purchased this color and I have to say, it's perfection. It looks great for everyday wear.
Love that Red- This is the perfect red with bluish undertones. The name lives up to the color because I really do "love that red"!
(we have 3 lip butters)
Candy Apple- I can't say enough great things about these lip butters. They moisturize to perfection & the color is fabulous.
Lollipop- This lip butter is so moisturizing plus it's the perfect pink!
(we have 4 lipstains)
Gothic- I wear these everyday, this color is more of a deep red, but they last pretty much all day!

(we have 12 eyeshadows)
Venetian Blue- This color is so vibrant & fun! Great for all seasons.
Riviera Blue- I love to create a smoky eye with this color It's the perfect dark blue.
Aubergine- When I first put on this color I knew it was the perfect purple. Especially when applied with a wet brush.
Black Galaxy- This is my "going out" color. It's great when I need to look fabulous in one quick step.
Peach Sorbet- This is the best color for every day. It makes you look more awake & bright. All 3 of us have this one...
Rich Sable- This shadow is really brown, it's matte so i use it as a crease color when i want a smoky eye!
Polished Bronze- This shadow is such a nice brown, plus i has little specks of glitter, so it brightens your eyes up!
Brushed Copper- I live in this color, and especially since I'm obsessing over metallic for fall. It'll look great for day and night.

Cream Blush in Berry Flirtatious- This cream blush is light & airy & has the best pink color.

Colorstay Blemish Concealer- Lately I've been breaking out a lot. This is a lightweight cover up that also heals @ the same time.
Age Defying Moisturizing Concealer- This concealer is so creamy, it goes on smooth and dries like a powder...it's just great!
(we have 2 eyeliners)
Colorstay Liquid Pen- This liquid liner lasts all day & all night. Whats better than that?

Grow Luscious- These mascaras are great for every day wear. They are lightweight & lengthening.
We snapped a pic of our stash of Revlon!
This is all 3 of ours combined....you can tell our love for Revlon runs deep!
During the cooler months i never feel up to doing nail art, i usually stick to one color (dark is my preference) and i'm good. I wanted to try something a little different, so i did a french manicure only i changed up the colors. I really like the way it turned out, plus it takes only four easy steps!
I'm already wanting to try some different color combos!
Step 1- Start by painting your nails with a base coat & then with the color of your choice for the bottom half of your mani. I used a brownish grey polish.
Step 2- When your nails are completely dry tape them off, making sure only the tips of your nails are exposed.
Step 3- Make sure the tape is secure on your nail so you get a clean line. Then taking a color of your choice, paint only the tip of your nail. I used black.
Step 4- Wait till the tip of your nail is dry, then slowly peel the tape off. Apply a top coat and Finito!
It's so easy, i hope you give it a try!
Hello friends!! Happy Tuesday to you! It's that time again.....time for a new 3 way style! This was one of our favorites we've done so far. We decided to style up a striped dress from Forever21. It is super comfy, plus it literally looked good on all of us! Check out how we styled it!
This three way style was by far my favorite. Partly because this dress was super comfy but also because we're finally getting to dress in fall clothes! I love the look of a dress with a blazer thrown over it. There's something about a blazer that makes me feel "put together" Oh and ya like my belt? It was a little diy project that Katy did. Thanks Katy!
First let me say this has been one of my favorite 3 way styles. Partly because I love this outfit and mostly because Im crazy in love with this jacket. Its vintage Forever 21, we dug it out for this outfit because I mean why not! Oh and those boots...I mean c'mon! I dig this look. Its so "I have incredible style but Im not trying to hard" kinda look. LOVE!
In case your wondering, YES I am wearing the dress backwards! I am a super fan of wearing things backwards.....i normally just stick to shirts and dresses, i don't think anyone wants to see me with my pants backwards! I get a lot of grief from my sisters for doing this but i think as long as the tag isn't showing and your rocking it, Who Cares! I'm so excited i got to wear my faux fur vest, i think fur makes every outfit just a little more glamourous!
Ok ladies, I have been so busy lately with all sorts of things, I decided to show you a stellar video for Makeup Monday this week. I may not be giving you a tutorial but the lovely, and oh so talented Michelle Phan is. Honestly, she does a way better job than me anyways! She has some great tips for your makeup in these cooler temps and of course a great Autumn look that anyone can achieve!
Take it away Michelle...
Around this time all we can think about is food, food, food. That's not such a bad thing though, its actually kinda nice dreaming about pumpkin pie.
Since we're starting to put together our Thanksgiving menu we thought we'd share some of our absolute favorite Thanksgiving recipes. These dishes are hands down the best Thanksgiving recipes you'll find. Every Thanksgiving we have the best food, we're pretty lucky to have some amazing cooks in our family. Every year we have a broccoli casserole (recipe is top secret) the minute it hits the table its gone! Don't worry we've included a version that's just as great. Trust us these Thanksgiving recipes are easy and delish! You're turkey will thank ya later for all these great side kicks....

We've been stepping out pretty frequently lately, cant you tell. This time we didn't hit up 17 bars or cheer on any football studs, but we did have some fantastical burritos, oh and I have to mention, me and Libby took a taste of death and we survived. We had a sister lunch, minus one, at Freebirds. It was our first time there so we had to get all dressed up for it! And if your thinking no alcohol was consumed on this day you would be....wrong. Taco Cabana has the best $1.50 margaritas this side of the border!
As you may know (or not know) football is big in Texas, and by big I mean HUGE. This Saturday we "stepped out in" these outfits to our little sisters football game. Well, she's in the band but we love the team just as much.
Actually, we did more than just a football game, these outfits got a lot of wear out of them. We were on the move right after these photos were taken. Football, then Wursfest. If you follow us on Twitter or Instagram I'm sure you saw a slew of photos. Then we hit up a few bars after that, 3 to be exact.
I know were such party animals!
Keep a look out for more of these posts, we had fun with this one!
If I could make every day "Pie Day" you better believe I would. There's just something about baking a pie that gets me all warm & fuzzy inside. Not to mention how it makes the house smell. I would bake a pie every day just to have the house smell amazing.
I found this great recipe from Better Homes & Gardens & it was fantastic! It's made with maple syrup, cinnamon & pumpkin. The flavors are perfection. They are warm & sweet all @ the same time. These ingredients add something extra special to pumpkin pie. It's the perfect fall pie. I think this dessert just might have to be a thanksgiving tradition!
So, this is the first Makeup Monday since the craziness of what we all know as Halloween. Side note: I hope you all liked our Halloween posts, we enjoyed doing them for you guys. OK so, lets get to this makeup. I was totally inspired by MAC's holiday products. Everything is so icy and there are blues and silvers and glitter everywhere, I LOVE IT!
I decided to do an icy blue eye this time. I'm also hoping by doing this tutorial it will inspire Texas to get cold and possibly have some snow in the near future. Fat chance I know, but can't a girl dream?
Step 1.) Start with a nude eye, as always, apply any primer you have.
Step 2.)Take your big fluffy brush and apply a white or nude shade all over your lid. Also apply to the brow bone. You want the light to catch the shimmer there to give you a more glowy look.
Step 3.) Apply a gold shadow to your top lid and in the crease of your eye, then take a deeper gold and apply in the crease just for a little dimension.
Step 4.) Take any blue cream shadow or blue eyeliner and line your top lid. You want to smudge it into the outer corner of your eye as well. Blend as you desire.Step 5.) Line your lower lash line with the blue as well and smudge. Take a black or charcoal eye liner and line your water line on both the top and bottom lids.
Step 6.) Apply a peach blush to the apples of your cheeks, just for a bit of a glow.
Step 7.) Apply a peachy lip stick or lip gloss to your lips. I wanted to stay with a more nude eye since this look is more about your eyes.
You are done!
This can be a great everyday look or even a great holiday party look. Feel free to try them in both settings, I know I will.
Good luck ladies!
