Formula 1

Well, it happened. Circuit of the Americas opened for its inaugural race weekend Friday, November 16, 2012! Racing is something I can share with my dad (he's a car guy/big fan). I'm all he's got, so I'm pretty sure he's glad I get into it. IT WAS AWESOME! Friday and Saturday were qualifying races and other various events; Sunday was US Grand Prix! In case you're wondering, there's NASCAR (american hobby.. think Jeff Gordon), Indy 500 (Helio Castroneves drives these), and then there's Formula One. F1 is the most watched motorsport in the world and this is the first track in the United States... a great one at that!

We had a blast!! We attending qualifying Saturday and the big race Sunday as we watched Lewis Hamilton take home the win! To make things better, it was Daddy's birthday over the weekend! Happy Birthday to you!!!!

Leather and layers
Ladies, if the leather jackets, fast cars, and attractive international fans aren't enough to draw you to the sport, I suggest you take a look at the drivers...... I mean.......

Sebastian Vettel, German driver for Red Bull and Jenson Button, Mercedes Benz driver from Australia. And this is only the beginning.... :)

The races next year are November 15, 2013. You're welcome.

I'm sure many of you already know, but an H&M opened in Austin, TX!!!! As I have been living under a rock for the past few weeks, when Dots told me, this news came as a complete shock! I was thrilled and immediately made plans to stop by on my way home for Christmas break... ultimate finals reward! It was also my first time exploring The Domain, and I am in love!

Dallas and Houston may have gotten them first, but I am so grateful to have one in ATX! I used to only get my H&M fix when I travelled to NYC, Las Vegas, abroad, etc. Right now their sale is ROCKING! Great party dresses and blazers for under $20!

I walked away with a great wide brim black wool hat ($7!!! stay tuned!) and some cute outwear for my momma! Great day and perfect way to kick off the break!

Sexiest Man Alive

On newsstands now!
Congrats, Channing Tatum, People's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive! We were especially happy with the choice as we've actually seen him in person. Take a look at our exciting celeb moment on the SXSW red carpet for 21 Jumpstreet!

no zoom.

Channing was GREAT with the crowd! Super friendly and spent as much time signing and taking pictures as possible (unlike Jonah Hill...)

Fun day!!!! This is making us seriously crave a celeb encounter.. what's next?!

Black Friday Haul

Thursday is reserved for family, food, and festivities, but Friday..... well, Friday (and late Thursday!) is set aside for shopping!!! Stripes braved the San Marcos outlets in the morning and Dots went to Target  Thursday evening. We found lots of great stuff. Hope you found good deals of your own!

A good BF find for Dots (and our entertainment for the evening!)

Weighed down (in the best way!)

Stripes got some Christmas shopping out of the way

$7.99 gold watch!
Still debating over these booties.. yes?

If you didn't get the chance to shop this weekend, the good sales aren't over! Enjoy!

A Happy Ending

Thursday evening marked the end of yet another chapter (first Harry Potter...) of our childhood with the premiere of the final movie in the Twilight series. Breaking Dawn Part Two came out and we waited in line to see it, as usual (happily two hours early at 10:00 pm)! As in the past, we took the opportunity to dress up (one of our favorite things), though we were sad we were not together to see it. This college thing can really be a drag sometimes.... BUT, general consensus: we loved it! Especially the second half, with the thrilling fight and sweet closing.

My friends from school dressed up, too! Rosalie, Bella (as a vampire) and Emily (Sam's girl)
Loaded up with coffee and hot chocolate!
Thanks 94.1 for the free screening tickets.
Had a wonderful time dressed up as Alice at the Breaking Dawn screening.
Make sure to see it over Thanksgiving break if you haven't caught a showing yet!

Little Things

October is a busy month bringing in cold weather, midterms & the upcoming holiday season. This morning we met up for a coffee date at the local Starbucks for a quick catch up on our lives over the past month. A run through of fashion and boybands was a must! Below are photos of our outfit of the day.


Stripes' preppy persona is complete with a fabulous pink sweater from Express for this cold season, riding boots from Steve Madden, a lovely chambray button down from J. Crew & a gorgeous H&M floral/plaid scarf. This cold weather brings her bundled up drinking coffee & listening to Taylor Swift's new album, Red.

Dots' cute & edgy look is put together by a lace shift dress from Forever 21 (On sale for $8),  her signature polkas were displayed as a scarf from Icing (On sale for $2), and the Christian Siriano wedges from Payless. Caramel apple cider is her accessory today when working at a coffee shop all day leads to constantly drinking iced coffees.

P.S. Don't forget to check out our favorite British boys's new song that was released today, Little Things by One Direction. Written by Ed Sheeran the lyrics are a beautiful melody that you will surely fall in love with. We certainly have.
