I always have the best time when I go back to my hometown of Dallas.
Besides my family, friends and the fabulous FOOD (!!), it’s where my whole story began. The place where I fell in love with makeup, skincare, baking and antiques; in other words, all things BeautyFrosting!
In my multi-part Saturday Social Hour, I am detailing my visits, tastes and experiences while visiting my beloved hometown. It’ll also clue you in to some Dallas-based posts that I have coming up for you. Yeehaw!
The week started out with a fun weekend with my family and my brother’s friends & families from college:
Next up was one of the main reasons for my trip – my dear friend, Jenny’s bridal shower (more details on that later):
Next, I drove out to Lancaster, Texas where my favorite bakery & baker, in the world, is – THE LOVIN’ OVEN! Stay tuned to a post about it coming up soon!
Next, I stopped by Neiman Marcus Northpark to see my first & favorite salesperson/beauty guru/friend/former coworker, Lori Nelson:
Lori introduced me to my lifelong beauty love affair with Creme de La Mer. I am forever in her debt!
Next, I stopped by Snider Plaza to visit my favorite home deco shop, Uptown Country Home
Owner/resident style expert/artist extraordinaire, Jenny Grumbles, always has the best finds! I always end up shipping my finds back to California because I can’t bear to be without them. My mom and I bought a coffee table but look at this super chic & snazzy custom headboard we saw there:
Next, I headed back to Northpark Mall to Nordstrom to visit with Tres Brown – a renowned makeup artist for Burberry, Tom Ford and Christian Dior:
And no trip to Dallas would be complete without MULTIPLE visits to my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant and home-away-from-home, Mi Cocina:
Along with the best margaritas in all the land:
Okay, beauties, that concludes Hometown Dallas Visit, Part 1. Hope you enjoyed it!
Let me know if you have any suggestions for places I should visit on my next trip home!
And tune in next week for Part 2 and see what delicious discoveries I had in Dallas.
