Thankful for boys on bikes | The North American Handmade Bike Show

The North American Handmade Bike Show is happening this weekend in Austin and there are fellas on bikes all over town to prove it.
Not only that, there are parties happening as well. Our shop neighbors, Austin Bikes, are prepping for theirs right now! And I hear that other famous cyclist from Austin, Lance, is also having a party at his bike shop, Mellow Johnny's.
It's 67 degrees and sunny. Cute guys are on bicycles...not a bad way to start the weekend! Spring is here Austin!

Red Flower is back!

We are happy to announce that Red Flower is back in stock!

Food | New Vietnamese inspired restaurant opening soon!

We saw this link on and got super excited! First of all, we love Lamberts and Perla's, so when we hear that the people behind those two yummy spots are to open a new little cafe in the recently vacated spot where the Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse resided, it made us happy. Good, because Bouldin is growing in its own right and just moved up the street and even better that an established group of local foodies are moving in. The best of both worlds! We look forward to eating a noodle bowl and seeing what else these guys have to offer!
Keep Austin Local!

The Ballerina Bun

Remember Lauren?
She is one of our stylist extraordinaires. 
We asked her to weigh in on upcoming 
hair tricks and trends....

Lauren says....We are lovin this mousse by Kevin Murphy containing tangerine oil and B vitamins. It creates soft, flexible fullness, the perfect product for creating this season's easiest hair trend -  the adorable ballerina bun! 

1. apply a generous amount from roots to ends when damp
2. rough dry hair until completely dry
3. using a soft bristled brush create a pony tail at the crown of the head
4. twist the pony tail around itself until you form a bun
5. pin in place. 
6. remember....messy is good!

Inspired by...BOTANICALS

A new season is upon us, wardrobe changes are about to happen and we couldn't be happier! Yes, yes, we all adore the holidays and everything that comes with it, but there is something so exciting once we begin a new year. Perhaps it's an excuse to brush off all the old and start anew and who doesn't need that every once in a while, right? That said, we are going to start incorporating new elements to our blog, it's a work in progress, so please feel free to let us know what you think, give suggestions...or gold stars...whatever it is we want to hear from you! You inspire us! 
This week we wanted to start off with a little bit of inspiration for Spring. We have had some unseasonably cold cold weather here in Austin, TX, only to be blessed with some absolutely gorgeous sunny days this past week. This time of year is always so fun around here, more so, because South By Southwest aka SXSW or South By (as we all call it) is less than a month away. It definitely brings in the crazy, but the vibe is infectious and if you want to know the truth, the fest really seems to challenge everyone step up their game when it comes to being stylish ;). 
Reading yesterday's post on WhoWhatWear Daily cemented that Spring is almost here. 

Which leads to our prediction - lots of flowery beauties rockin their cowboy boots this season.
What are you most excited to wear once it warms up?
We would love to hear!

We were tickled pink to help the lovely Farah launch I LOVE YOU. Everyone got to get dressed up, Dulce Vida Tequila made Blood Orange infused Paloma's, we had astrological readings, scotch tastings and there was a raffle and the grand prize was an entire year of Farah hair! For anyone who gets their hair done on a regular basis, we all know that is a pretty amazing gift to your pocketbook! Love was in the air and we had a real special time!

Events events events!

Hey everyone! We have been busy these last few weeks, dealing with this not so fun weather, as well as having a couple of events at Sabia. First up was the MANuary event that we blogged about here. We had such a great time! It was so nice to add a different element (i.e. males) to our little shop. We had a great turnout, the special cocktails that Dulce Vida Tequila provided were excellent and we were able to help introduce a new menswear brand, Criquet Shirts, which sport a very clean design and look rather dapper!
