For the "most popular women's event in the Southwest," VISIONS: The Women's Expo knows exactly how to target their audience. When it comes to bonding the ladies together, always go with the three F's: free stuff (facials, hairstyling, tastings, demonstrations), fashion shows (pet, human and jewelry, of course) and firefighters (yeah, that's right, there's a firefighter auction). 'Course, it doesn't hurt to throw in organics, psychics, nibbles and music either. Bond with your girlfriends and check out the three-day event that marks the holy grail for the sample-happy...and a really good reason for at least two girls'-nights-out. VISIONS takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Dallas Market Hall, 2200 N. Stemmons Freeway. Admission is $10 (two-day passes are $14).
