1. MORNING RITUAL
“I’m currently obsessed with coconut oil pulling. It takes a bit of getting used to but once I did, the beneﬁts have been immediate and dramatic. The ﬁrst thing I do when I wake up, even before brushing my teeth, is swish a tablespoon of organic coconut oil around in my mouth for as long as I can (I’m up to about 15 min). My skin is clearer, my teeth are whiter, my dentist says my gums have never been so healthy and my sinuses are much clearer. I’ll take all the sinus help I can get in the allergy capitol–Austin, Texas–check it out people!”
2. FAVORITE THING ABOUT MY NEIGHBORHOOD
“I’m a lucky girl. I live part of the time in Venice Beach, Ca and part time here in Austin, my home town, in Clarksville. They are both extremely walkable ‘hoods, which I need and love after living in New York for so long. I never tire of the sights in either city. With the young, fresh energy of Austin and the Freak show capitol of the U.S.-the Venice Beach Boardwalk—neither are ever boring, always colorful and ever changing.”
3. CRINGE WORTHY HAIR MOMENT
“In High school I had one length hair almost to my waist that I would blow out and ﬂat iron every day—-very Cousin It (I have a ton of hair), not to mention a huge pain in the ass. Also, a couple years ago, after a particularly lively Taco Tuesday party at around 3 am, I let my pals shave a whole side of my head to the skin—-the following morning was a little rough but I ended up loving it, dying it green and blue, shaving shapes into it and appreciating the extra air conditioning by the time ACL rolled around. I’m still growing it out but don’t regret it for a second!”
4. LOCAL ESCAPE
“I love to run all over this city—if I can manage it, for a couple hours at a time. I will always love long hill country drives with the windows down and getting lost in Book People.”
5. GUILTY PLEASURE
“I like my pleasure guilt free, thank you! I LOVE my Oribe products and going to see Sheera Rexroad for absolutely anything.”
6. CURRENTLY LISTENING TO..
“Disclosure, Father John Misty, Old Paul Simon and Jeff Buckley, my boys and locals Buggaboo’s new album (featuring the lovely vocal stylings of the talented I Love You Pink lady extraordinaire Georgia Bramhall!)–they’re about to blow up y’all-check it!…and that new Beyonce joint–da-damn that girl!”
7. IF YOU COULD REVIVE AN OLD AUSTIN HAUNT
“Lake Travis!!!—I grew up on that lake and miss the half of it that evaporated!!! It really breaks my heart to see it at such a level.”
8. WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?
“Honesty. Expression of the soul in any form. The new, The young, The old, The world.”
9. BEDSIDE TABLE
“Currently tackling Inﬁnite Jest by David Foster Wallace (that puppy is dense) with George Saunders stories and Pablo Neruda poems for a break and always new scripts.”

WE LOVE YOU: Laura Munoz / Aesthetician
I Love You Pink opened its doors in early 2013 and in such a short time, Stylist and Proprietor, Farah Reid has managed to gather together a wonderful mix of skilled ladies that all compliment each in pieces of this creative puzzle. The most recent addition is that of aesthetician, Laura Munoz. Her studies and training have led to a different approach to skincare. One that is more natural and healing.
We sat down to learn a little bit more about Laura and all that she brings to the shop.
What sparked your interest into the field of holistic skincare?
“My interest in skincare started from an early age. I basically became my family’s resident groomer, always the first to want to pick at any unsightly blemish or tweeze my sister’s brows. My love of product grew naturally from there and I realized about the age of 19 that I wanted to become an aesthetician. Fast forward 7 years, I had just completed my first year teaching high school English, and I decided that I wanted to pursue my first love of skincare and the healing use of botanicals for inflammatory conditions.”
How does the use of botanicals set your philosophy of skincare apart?
“I have a lot of varied interests and I have often wondered how I could bring them all together. It is finally in working directly with people and their skin that I have been able to tie in my background in horticulture and plant research and how they can be used to heal the body. Personally, I have a long history of my own journey with several inflammatory conditions. Throughout that I have learned all about botanicals and supplements and how to use alternative modalities in healing, rather than prescription medications to get my body to reduce inflammation. It’s been such an interesting thing to be able to bring that into working with people’s skin.
But, most importantly, I like to share with clients that a skincare routine does not have to be a chore. I want people to understand that they can and should take part in a beauty ritual, it’s good for the soul.”
It must be so exciting to work with such a creative group of women.
“Yes, I know! The ladies are so special and some of them have been friends of mine for a few years now and the ones that I have just met are so welcoming to me and I am super grateful that I get to spend time with them. Farah has also fixed up a lovely space for me to treat clients.”
How are you fitting into the groove and what things can we expect from you?
“I will be at the shop on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10a-6pm and I will be doing pretty much everything: I wax bodies from head to toe and waxing is something I really love; I am a very results oriented person, so I like watching something go from A to B quickly. That said I love doing eyelash extensions, so I’ll be providing those services as well, and as far as skincare is concerned; my focus is definitely working with inflammatory conditions. I was trained by the great Marisa Hernandez of Inventive Eco Organic and with her education I have developed a focus on deep pore cleansing and stimulation of the circulatory system, re-oxygenating the skin and bringing down inflammation, so that definitely plays into every treatment that I do when I touch the skin. I also have some fun new gadgets which provide excellent results. We have micro current with the NuFace device and we will be using the Ultrasonic exfoliation which is a gentle exfoliation, similar to microdermabrasion, but with less of the inflammatory side effects and then of course, we are always excited about bringing in new tools. I also plan to bring in some DIY products that will be used in my services that will be sent home with clients to play with which we are all really excited about.”
