2nd Anniversary Weekend

My husband and I recently celebrated our two year anniversary! I thought I would share a few pictures from the weekend featuring my beauty look and some fun Dallas places we visited.

We started out the morning visiting a local coffee shop we had always passed by called Method: Caffenation and Fare. It’s a small place that has a hipster and serious coffee drinker vibe. I got a vanilla latte and Michael got a cappuccino. I love foam art, it makes the whole experience better. I thought my drink was pretty strong. They don’t have a lot of specialty drinks on the menu – just the basics. Overall not a place I would probably visit again because I just discovered White Rock Coffee (thanks Tess) and I am loving their sugary flavored concoctions and not serious vibe.

We picked up some dounts to take with us to Method from Glazed – a great little place in Deep Ellum. They are open in the morning and again late at night to cater to the concert and club crowds. They have a rotating menu with different flavors each day that they list on a chalkboard. Michael tried red velvet and I got a cocnut mocha (tasted like a Mounds bar). Both we delicious and I recommend giving this place a try.

Later that day I went to Drybar at Northpark to get a blow out. If you’ve never been, they wash and style your hair – it’s great for weddings or a night out when you want to look extra special. You can drink champagne and watch movies while someone else does all the work. This time I chose the Mai Tai style which is beachy toussled waves. I love how it turned out! Their hair products also smell amazing. Going there is becoming an anniversary tradition!

I did my own makeup and used the MAKE Calypso palette with a pop of turquoise shadow on the lower lash line. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz helped define my brows and I used Mac Lipstick in Syurp.

We checked out Rise No. 1 (located in Inwood Village)on recommendation from my Mom – they specialize in souffles! I love french food and don’t come across souffles often so I was excited to try it out. I chose the ham and cheese souffle along with a house salad and Michael got the spicy sausage. We both split a key lime souffle for dessert. The atmosphere and food here were wonderful!

Next up we headed to Fair Park to see Cinderella. It was an amazing show and afterward we had mini cupcakes and saw some fireworks. It was a magical night!

Just a little note about our anniversary presents. A friend let us know that Vans was doing a collaboration with Disney, and we knew we had to check it out. We went out that night to get some shoes!

So many adorable options for girls! No Cinderella though so I went with classic Minnie. Michael chose bright and colorful Mickey and friends.
