This past August marked my one year anniversary of being diagnosed, and cured from Endometrial Cancer. To mark that incredible milestone, it was really important for me to host my first annual charity shopping event where 20% of all proceeds were donated to the Dallas chapter of Young Texans Against Cancer (YTAC).
We couldn't have been happier with the incredible jewelry & fashion designers who participated, including- CJ Rox, Abi Ferrin, Sweet Olive Jewelry, Edo Popken, Shirin Askari, Chantilly & of course to Strauss PR for getting the word out. It wouldn't have happened without everyone's help, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
We loved Shopping, Sipping, and Rocking with everyone and I absolutely can't wait to do it even bigger and better next year!
We are so pleased to have opened another gorgeous show at Gallerie Noir through November 22. This show features mineral murals by Dallas native & mosaic artist Connie Chantilis; wood sculptures from Texas artist Willis Lejeune; and loose minerals from The Arkenstone.
Thanks to all the people who make these wonderful celebrations of art and beauty happen! This is a show that MUST be seen in person to fully appreciate.
In this video, Gallerie Noir artist Paul Choznowski shows off his incredible process for creating his "fire paintings". There's nothing we like more than finding an artist whose craft is unique and visionary, and that is exactly the end result of Paul's hauntingly beautiful images.

Showing up with a thoughtless gift is as bad as showing up empty handed... Here are a few tips that will save your day.
#1- A bottle of wine is just plain old...plain. Show a bit of your personality and show up with a vintage brass bottle opener and a pack of craft beer. *thoughtful*
#2- What about a cool set of vintage apertif glasses with a handwritten secret family desert recipe? These letterpressed recipe cards I found on Etsy are so cute *sigh*
#3- Since we like to hang out with a whiskey drinking bunch... I'd be super excited to get a leather wrapped flask and a bottle of Angels Envy... *hint hint*
