Domaine Henri Maire Tasting at Lavendou Bistro

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a six-course wine dinner hosted by winemaker Jacques Hauller of Domaine Henri Maire, a Boisset Collection wine label. Domaine Henri Maire is in the Jura, a wine region I wasn’t previously familiar with in eastern France between Burgundy and Switzerland. Isn’t it lovely? The dinner was held…

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2019

Last year I wrote, “I have decided that the epitome of happiness is an ice cream cone in your left hand, a glass of wine in your right hand, and live jazz during cherry blossom season at The Dallas Arboretum” and I said the exact same thing to my friend Matt this year, as we…

Isn’t It Romantic

Thank you to Warner Brothers Entertainment for inviting me to screen this film! I got to preview the comedy Isn’t It Romantic tonight at the Dallas screening. I expected to like it because I adore Rebel Wilson but I did not expect the entire theater to guffaw during the entire 88-minute run. It’s hysterical! The movie centers…

Earnest Donuts

Let’s talk about donuts. I am positively obsessed with the pastry magic that is Earnest Donuts. Dallas Donut blogger Rory (@donutdigest) told me about Earnest Donuts and asked if she could bring some over for my Cinderella Ball. I was ecstatic because donuts are having a total moment in Dallas and I often see them pop…

Cirque du Soleil Amaluna

A mind-bending evening of enchanting acrobatics The women reign supreme in Cirque du Soleil Amaluna. Based on The Tempest by Shakespeare with aesthetics reminiscent of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Amaluna is an evening jam-packed with contortion, gymnastics, and suspense. I was invited to experience the show by Cirque du Soleil during its tour in Dallas and I asked…

Enchant Christmas

Exploring the world’s largest Christmas light maze I could not have been more excited to get an invitation to review Enchant Christmas. I saw photos last year and was mesmerized by its beauty. I took my friend Morgan and had the most incredible time getting into the Christmas spirit! Follow me into a world of pure…

Mamma Mia at Brick Road Theatre

My regular readers know what a huge theatre fan I am. You can take the girl off the stage but you can never take the stage outta the girl. I’ve been blown away by every show I’ve seen at Brick Road Theatre and Mamma Mia! is no exception. In fact it’s so good, I saw…

The Dallas Opera First Sight 2018

This was my first time attending The Dallas Opera‘s First Sight event, an annual luncheon and fashion show the day before opening night.

A string quartet played…

Adventures in Neverland at Dallas Arboretum

The other day I had the pleasure of exploring the Dallas Arboretum’s annual pumpkin village with my dear friend (and avid Rose Table reader!) Kat. There are a lot of fantastic events in Dallas in the fall but this is one of my favorites! Autumn at the Arboretum boasts 4,500 Chrysanthemums, 150,000 fall blooming plants,…

The Dallas Opera Patron Party

I felt like the luckiest girl in Dallas last night frolicking in the epic gardens of Roxanne and Gene Phillips, who opened up their stunning home for The Dallas Opera Patron Party featuring Bulgari. The soirée is hosted as a thank you to donors prior to The Dallas Opera‘s First Sight / First Night (presented…

A Staycation at Fairmont Dallas

My regular readers know that I’m a huge fan of Fairmont Hotels but I had never been inside Fairmont Dallas! I decided to have a little staycation the weekend of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala with my friend Wendy Darling so that we didn’t both have to drive an hour at midnight after the ball….
