Texas Sass Valentine's day giveaway


I have always loved Valentine's Day! Today I'm doing an Instagram Giveaway to celebrate women and love ❤ I hope y'all LOVE the items I selected! I'll explain a little about each item and why I love it so much! Keep reading for a bonus entry opportunity!

Glamboxes clear makeup bag - This is a bag I received with my Glambox and I set it aside for a future giveaway. I have a makeup bag just like it in black and it has quickly become my favorite. It's durable plastic, easy to clean and dare I say life changing for this mom with very little time! No more digging through my bag for that item that inevitably falls to the very bottom... I've seriously cut my makeup time in half just because of the convenience of finding the item through the clear bag first!

Professional Makeup brush set - 5 brushes including powder, blush, eye shadow, eye crease and  eye liner/brow . This makeup brush set is my favorite because it comes with the brush holder to organize all your brushes and has extra pockets for makeup, brush cleaner or whatever you want! The fold down flap keeps the brushes covered and clean.

Beauty That Counts® Mary Kay® Baked Cheek Powder - This adorable heart shaped blush is such a flattering shade on any woman. It has been my favorite blush and it was limited edition so I've been hoarding them basically lol but someone will be so lucky to get this! It also gives back to the Mary Kay Foundation which supports women's shelters and survivors of domestic abuse.

Mary Kay® Lash Love® mascara - Every girl needs a good mascara and this is a great formula for anyone. The flexible brush makes separating lashes super easy and it helps condition lashes and defend against breakage.

Accessory bags, set of 3 - Organize your jewels, delicates and essentials in these adorable white bags with rose gold lettering! Now that everyone is starting to think of spring and summer vacations, I thought these would be perfect for the travel girl or for anyone that just loves keeping their items clean and tidy. Every girl benefits from a little organization!

"Stay Sassy" trinket tray - If you watch my insta stories you'll know I specifically picked out this item at Winton and Waits for this giveaway! It's perfect for jewelry or little things around the office or house and it's my reminder to you that we all have a little sassy in us ❤ Winton and Waits is a great boutique for affordable, adorable clothing, accessories and home decor and they partner with non-profits that benefit Ethiopian women, adoption, and survivors of sexual exploitation.

I'd love to keep all of these items, not gonna lie!!! But I'd rather share the LOVE and say thank you for following along and supporting me, whether you read the blog or follow me on Instagram or Twitter... I appreciate you! This giveaway is not sponsored in any way, so the specific brands I've chosen are just brands I happen to like.

To enter the giveaway you must follow the steps on my Instagram Giveaway Post.
✳For a bonus entry, comment below with which item you're most excited about!

What do y'all have planned for Valentine's Day? Chris and I haven't even discussed!! Haha #parentlife

Over-the-knee boots on sale!

Hey y'all! Wanted to share these boots today because I finally joined the over-the-knee boot party!  I ordered these Marc Fisher boots in gray and black and if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen on my stories the other day that my gray boots came in! I'm super excited to share that even though I was worried about the fit, that they are absolutely perfect and fit me really well! One of the reasons I purchased these particular boots is because I have thin legs. After reading the reviews, a lot of people said they fit them well when they had trouble finding boots that would stay up on their own because of their thin legs. Bingo! Since I want to be able to wear them with pants as well as skirts, they needed to be snug.
I also really don't like shopping when I can't try things on. It can often cause a problem for me because I have narrow feet and my size can vary a lot across brands as well as type of shoe. I end up returning a lot of shoes or exchanging back and forth. Soooo in my opinion, this is a great boot that fits well and at a super great price point, especially for an OTK boot!!
These Marc Fisher boots come in three colors from DSW (the other is a Berry color). I am linking them from DSW because they are currently on clearance price varying from $59 to $89. Use code JANUARY18 for an extra discount but hurry, it ends tonight!
(Pic from DSW)
I can't wait to get the black! I'm not over here tracking them obsessively or anything!! If you are looking in black and DSW doesn't have your size stocked (pretty much all sizes ARE stocked), you can try here.

I can tell these are boots I'm going to get a lot of use out of so I'm really happy that I made the decision to get gray and black! 
The chunkier block heel makes them very comfortable and easy to walk in, even if I have to chase after Kendall. They are faux suede and the back panel of the boot is a stretchy material.
Today we are lounging around the house as a family and I will be doing some meal prep for the week later. It's sort of a gloomy day and we're all relaxing and enjoying the end of the weekend. What are y'all up to today?

Mommy and mini PJ party

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! Can you believe Christmas is only a week away? I don't even want to admit to myself how much I have left to do! It's been a little hard to be productive around here lately. There's been a lot going on and to top it off our entire family got sick last week. Yuck!

So needless to say we've all been lounging in pretty comfy clothing lately. Today I'm sharing my new favorite PJs that I've been living in! These are great to purchase for yourself or would also make a really cute gift!
They are so soft! They're also warm enough but not too warm to sleep in. I usually don't sleep in long sleeves but I was comfortable in these the other night. There's a kangaroo pouch in the front if you're like me and have to have pockets for your hands! They come in five different color patterns  (WAIT, they added a blue ombre and I'm obsessed! so now 6 colors!!) and each one comes with a matching beanie! I love that it comes with the beanie because it's trendy right now but it also allows you to mix and match it with other outfits so you're basically kind of getting a hat for free! Seriously though, I've seen a lot of other beanies with pom poms on top recently that cost just as much as this entire pajama set!

I went with the black snowflake pattern because I liked it a lot and I also thought the black beanie would be very versatile for me. I may have put two other colors on my Christmas list lol. If you're someone that prefers button up PJs (or maybe you're breastfeeding) or maybe you don't like the jogger pants trend and like a more straight leg, check these out!

I'm sorry for not having more pictures! Y'all have no idea how difficult it is to get a picture now with Kendall because she will not sit still!! BUT anyway, you can always message me on Instagram or Twitter for more detailed looks! I'm more than happy to answer questions! (You can also comment below on this post)
My PJ set with matching beanie is on sale for less than $30. Kendall's jammies are on sale for $10. You can get an extra 15-20% off both with code SAVEMORE20

This damp cold weather is killing me! You might find me in these PJs again tonight on IG stories or Snapchat (tx.sass). Who knows 😊

Tula skincare review and referral discount

Ok y'all, Chris got sick last week and it was icky. Kendall picked it up and I was doing alright until bam! Momma is sick. So this is day 2 in bed for me and it. drives. me. nuts.

If you've known me for years (especially in college), you may think I'm crazy to now say I don't like sleeping during the day! But seriously, I've grown very accustomed to my routine over the last year... it's weird for me to not be the first up and know what's happening in the house throughout the day. BUT, it has given me a little extra time to write (thank you hubby for taking care of me and the kid!)... Hence today's post!
I've been meaning to talk about Tula for awhile now. I'm still super new to their products but I love them so far and wanted to share a few of my favorite products and a referral link if you're new to Tula and want to try it out at 20% off! PLUS they're having a special right now and the more you spend the more you get.

Today I'm super excited to finally share my collaboration with Berry, Pom and James for Kendall's first birthday! Even if you're not  into a kid's birthday party, you're still going to want to read on because this is such a great resource for any kind of party decor! Especially this time of year with all of the holiday parties and New Year's Eve parties! If you are entertaining, or even if you just need a gift (hostess gifts, bridesmaid gifts, kids' gifts...), you need to check out this vendor for the cutest items! And if you happen to be local to Fort Worth, there's free delivery!

New in the closet: sweater weather

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! As usual, we've been horribly confused lately in Texas with the weather! One day we're sweating in the 90s (seriously y'all, last week we hit a record high for November) and the next day we're bundled up in sweaters. I've switched our A/C from cold to heat and back twice now and every day I have to go outside with my morning coffee to check the temperature before getting dressed. Despite being in Texas almost my entire life, you never really get used to it, in my opinion.

Fort worth shopping events Oct 24-28

Hey y'all! We all know that shopping is way more fun when there is champagne, wine and/or appetizers involved! Today I wanted to tell you quickly about two fun shopping events happening in Fort Worth. One is today, Tuesday, October 24th, and the other is Saturday, October 28th.

If you've read a few of my latest posts, you'll know that I'm really in love with the West Bend shopping area on University. If you have yet to visit West Bend, today would be a great day to check it out! Pax and Parker is having a shopping event today from 4 p.m. to 7 and you can sip champagne and earn double rewards points.
The other shopping event I want to highlight is happening this Saturday. It is brought to you by Sundance Square and it sounds like so much fun! This is a "Spooky Sip and Shop" event you need to purchase tickets for ahead of time. There are multiple shops participating! Shops are having special deals and discounts. There will also p drinks in light bites provided. Ticket purchase is $25 and it is actually a donation to The Tarrant Area Food Bank. You can read more about this event HERE and purchase tickets.

I'd love to know if you're going to this event! Saturday is my birthday and I'm still not sure what I'll be doing, but this sounds like a really fun option!

Arts goggle today!

Arts Goggle is happening today! This is definitely one of my favorite events of the year. I've said it before and I'll say it again, one of the best things about Fort Worth is a small-town feel with a ton of cultural events and a plethora of talented locals (yeah I just used the word plethora, my husband would be so proud... We're big Three Amigo fans haaa). And usually a lot of those events are free, including today's Arts Goggle in the Near Southside.

Kendall's 1st birthday: Party shoes

Hey y'all! I feel like I have been so MIA from the blog and I'm so sorry. Life is always taking over. We celebrated Kendall's first birthday over the weekend and I think I'm still in shock that my baby is one year old! I mentioned on Instagram that I will be doing a series of blog posts about her birthday party. I will be going over the decor I used, a few DIY projects, and outfits.

Chris is working late tonight and I am taking a little bit of relaxing mommy time with my real housewives (I have a sick obsession!!) But I wanted to link Kendall's party shoes for Tuesday Shoes Day!
I love allowing Kendall to be barefoot almost everywhere. She basically never wears shoes when we're home. And even when I take her outside to play we love to both be barefoot. However she is walking so much now that we needed to invest in a good pair of shoes. I decided to buy her these platinum bow moccasins as a birthday present and give them to her before her party since they matched her dress perfectly. So far they are tricky for her to walk on our hardwood floors LOL. When she walked out into her party she stood perfectly still in the same spot for probably about 3 minutes, just looking around at everybody and not understanding what the birthday party was 😂 But I know with a little practice she'll get the hang of it.
You can find these adorable shoes HERE. I went with a neutral color that I know will go with a lot of her outfits. There are so many adorable shoes that I want!! Y'all seriously, the prints!!!

I can't wait to share more details with you about her party. It was a great success and we all had a lot of fun! How was your weekend? has anybody gone to the state fair yet? Did everybody enjoy the gorgeous weather we had today in DFW?

It's Friday in the Fort! Did anyone else's week fly by?  Even though the heat is still being a stubborn bia in Texas, there's lots of reasons to get outside this weekend! Today I'm sharing a few of the fun Fort Worth activities happening this weekend! A lot of them (most!) are free and family friendly!
