Thursday: Started with Beauty Week at Neiman Marcus, and a Master Makeup Class by NYC makeup artist to the stars, and author Trish McEvoy.  I was running a bit late,  but so was Neiman Marcus.

I was told to look around and shop and wait, and wait, and wait some more!! I was a little pissed about the wait, but all was forgotten once I saw the youthful Trish McEvoy. She pranced around, told stories of models and spoke to all of us about our faces!! I was lucky enough to get called on stage for a 5 min tutorial. One day I might post the video on YouTube , but that day is not today!

Thursday Night- First Stop- Asador in the Renaissance Dallas Hotel for a get together with fellow writers. Asador a modern-farm- to fire- restaurant open late last year, and is off to a great start. The decor is striking, and the drinks are AMAZING!! What more could you want in a new restaurant? Weekly Specials, well they have that too.

Samantha McCurdy- Artist- Mockingbird Station

Stop 2: Mockingbird Station- The Lofts at Mockingbird Station for a Toast to the Arts. The trendy loft setting was the place to be on Thursday night. Guest mingled while looking at the stunning art work from Samantha McCurdy, and Michael Cross.

The room was crowded as I accidentally knocked over a sculpture. Gasp!!  A crowded room is a sign of a great party!!! And I was told three people knocked  it over before I arrived. What a relief.

Negatives : The wind, and parking, but you can’t always have a perfect evening. I will be back !!!

Stop 3: Samuel Lynne Gallery- DIFFA Preview Event– It’s always nice to see old friends, talk about charity, and view beautiful artwork. The  Samuel Lynn Gallery was the back drop for this fun event.  The stilettos and clutches were out in full force at this exclusive media event for DIFFA.

Stop 4: The Pin Show – It’s so hard to pick which event was my favorite, but The Pin show runs pretty high on the list!!

What a fun show with over 26 independent designers.  Masters of Ceremonies; Hamilton Sneed and Lisa Petty were excited to lend their stylish voices to such a great cause

Although it was a long show ( with the longest valet line ever) it produced dynamic pieces and one rocking party!!!

Things I learned …

Always bring a coat- What started out as a normal night turned into a chilly one. Luckily I ran into a few gentlemen who were willing to lend me their coats.

Use the navigation system!!! . Lesson learned!!

And remember all major construction happens at night! It took me 2 hours to get home because of all the detours!!!
