Get Out & About for the Week of February 24, 2013

One of the things I love about Dallas, is that you can never be bored - unless you just want to be. From cultural exhibitions to restaurant openings, fashion shows to charity galas - Dallas has something for everyone! Here are a few event highlights for the week of February 24, 2013:

On Tuesday, Feb. 26 the Dallas Mavericks will take on the Milwaukee Bucks at the American Airlines Center.

Across town, Erykah Badu will be celebrating her birthday with a party at The Granada. This Grammy award-winning artist is best known for her eccentric style and cerebral music. Watch the Queen of Neo Soul live and help her celebrate her birthday is style. Tickets are $25 and be purchased online at

On Thursday, February 28, check out "A Night to Fight" fundraiser to benefit Dallas Leadership Foundation's Ring of Hope Boxing Club . The event will be held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum and guests will have an opportunity to learn how DLF is mentoring young people through the sport of boxing. The Ring of Hope Boxing Club is a special outreach project that operates from an 8,000-square-foot gym located in a warehouse district in East Dallas. They provide mentoring support for teens while also promoting physical fitness. The project is the first of its kind in Dallas. Entertainment, food and beverages, along with a raffle, will all be included at this year's fundraiser. Tickets start at $250 and can be purchased at

I will be joining Pat & Emmitt Smith for an event called PINK’D that will kick-off the 5th annual Beauty Live event in "The Alley", located near the Grill on the Alley.

And finally, if you love make-up, skincare and fragrances, you won’t want to miss a weekend of seminars and special events at the Galleria Dallas’ annual Beauty Live event. For one weekend, the Southwest’s most chic shopping destination will be the epicenter of the beauty industry. Galleria Dallas celebrates the beauty in every woman as Beauty Live returns to the famed shopping center March 2-3, 2013.

Beauty Live showcases all the top trends in beauty with dozens of events and activities. On Level I, guests will enjoy continuous demonstrations on a state of the art beauty stage featuring an enormous plasma monitor and showcasing some of the top cosmetic and beauty experts in the world.

I will be participating in a celebrity panel on Saturday morning at 11AM on Level One talking about trends for spring and hot new products to try along with Pat Smith, Steve Kemble, D Magazine’s Raya Ramsey, LeeAnne Locken and Joanna Hathcock. This is a super fun and free event so I hope everyone will come out to play!
