It’s another weekend recap hosted by the beautiful Bella from Dateless in Dallas. I’d have to say that this weekend was another whirlwind of a weekend with a ton of activities. I would write about 4th of July but suffice it to say everyone around town had a wonderful 4th and many blog posts echoed that sentiment so I’m not going to re-create the wheel here.
On Friday morning I got up early to do a photoshoot at the art mural across from the Meyerson Symphony Center around the corner from the Cathedral de Guadalupe on Ross Ave. The cathedral is the first Catholic church in the city of Dallas and comes ripe and rich with history. The mural is an annual art contest put on by the Catholic Foundation calling on professional artists to submit their entries. I love this place because it’s a mixture of old and new architecture all in the city I love the most. What inspired me to get new professional photography? I believe I told you a few months ago that I went on the worse first date ever! A blogger himself, he complained that my professional photos were outdated when he Googled me. Some of my pics were in fact 4 years old and a few were from 2013 but considering how many places I write for, it would be pretty difficult to tell each and every publication to please update my photo. Get Real! So I took the liberty of sending this guy a few of the new photos. My friend did my makeup and she did an awesome job. She really put dramatic effect to the eyes. I also tried airbrush makeup for the first time and really liked it. For a photoshoot it was great.
Here’s a few of the photos that I took:
If you have never been to Mockingbird Station you should check it out. From Highway 75 just take the Mockingbird Exit and head west. It’s on the Northwest corner. With the Angelika Film Center, Twin Peaks and lots of shops it’s a great place to hang out. I got the chance to go there and try out blowout bar called Pouf. Check out my review of Pouf and how they can help you with. After that I did some shopping at Urban Outfitters and the Gap. I got some fashion items that look much like the outfits below:
The Dallas Psychic Fair
On Sunday I ended up at the Dallas Psychic Fair. This monthly fair is held at the Double Tree on Alpha link road in Dallas. I think I told everyone on the blog that I started the blog when a psychic from this same Psychic Fair told me I should. And that is how we got started. You can meet everyone from curandera, psychics, astrologers and more. There are also crafters and vendors with everything from aura photos, mixed nuts, chakra healing and more. I got my handwriting analyzed and was pretty amazed as what I learned about myself. The lady that did my handwriting analysis gave me some tips such as when writing y’s, j’s and g’s always end the tail up since that represents success. She also mentioned that I need to cross the t’s higher in my name so that I set and realize my goals. The Dallas Psychic Fair has been around for over 15 years and residents and tourists alike enjoy going here. You get to sample psychics and clairvoyants for 15 minutes costing $20 for each reading. Admission is $7.00 but get a coupon on their website.
King Spa and Sauna
On Sunday Baby B really wanted to go swimming. Instead of being outside where it’s very hot, we opted for the Groupon I purchased to the King Spa. This is one of the few Groupons that I actually purchase and I love it. What makes this place stand apart from the rest is the variety of services and the fact that it’s a family atmosphere. For one admission you get access to the communal bath, the saunas and the movie theater. There is also an indoor waterpark that my daughter loves with pools and hot tubs. I enjoy sitting in the pools and have the water jet things massage my back. Kids will enjoy the water slides and the water cannons. Overall it was a great weekend which ended with some fantastic poetry from my love.
