Our Day at American Girl in Dallas

When I was a volunteer in the Junior League of San Antonio, we hosted the American Girl Party at the Ole Market’s fundraiser. My son was about 3 years old at the time and I didn’t have daughters yet. I just loved watching all the little girls walk in with their dolls in their arms. A lot of them had clothes on that matched the dolls. It was set up like a big tea party with an educational presentation featuring the doll of the year. They usually served finger foods and punch and lots of candy.               I didn’t have an American … [Read more...]

Sassy at Younique Boutique

Our Sassy Mom model teachers, Shannon and Ruby are back this month.  I had to get them to pose for pictures before another school year starts up. I see them in the school halls of my daughter’s elementary school. They are the best of friends. Not only are they very fashionable, but they are a whole lot of fun. One of my readers told me about a boutique in Stone Oak that she loves. It is located in the front part of a tanning salon. I was  intrigued. What is not to love about getting a spray tan and an outfit at the same location? We are all busy Moms after all. We decided to check out a … [Read more...]

Karolina’s on My Mind

I had an hour to kill between appointments the other day and I suddenly realized that I was near one of my favorite quirky stores, Karolina's. I don't go in there very often but when I do, I always ask myself, "Why don't I come in here more often?" I have very intelligent conversations with myself. I used to have the luxury of time to browse around and shop. Those days are long gone since I now have 3 children. I am always in a hurry. On those rare occasions that I have time on my hands, I want it to be worth it. I knew that this store would be and then some. There is just something … [Read more...]

It’s a Wrap!

One of my very first jobs as a teenager was at a jewelry store that offered free gift wrap for every item sold. The owner of the store was a former Marine. She was picky. Let’s just say I can wrap a pretty present very efficiently! It seems as if you don’t see as many gifts that are wrapped since the invention of the gift bag. I love gift bags, especially since I have so many birthday parties to attend with my children. They are so easy to recycle and all your really need is new or newish tissue paper and voila! I do prefer a present to be wrapped but I can never find the scotch tape in our … [Read more...]

Get Sassy at AMAR Cosmetics

After watching Adele’s performance at the Grammy’s last weekend, I have become obsessed with false eyelashes. She looked amazing with those smokey eyes and lashes that went on forever. Although most of us will never sing like Adele, we can certainly try and duplicate those beautiful eyes. False eyelashes aren’t exactly something you put on every day,  I mean it is a little much for the carpool lane! I wanted to find out how to apply them for those special occasion events so we can all feel as glamorous as a Grammy award winner.  Livin’ Sassy went to AMAR Cosmetics in the Quarry Village. They … [Read more...]
