We’re taught over years of feminist literature, self-help books and Gilmore Girls episodes that women need to be comfortable with themselves to feel beautiful. We know logically that beauty is only skin-deep and that the real goods are on the inside, but dang if it doesn’t feel heavenly sometimes to spend an afternoon wandering the cosmetics department at Neiman Marcus, sampling the goodies and claiming a lipstick color that makes you feel…you. That’s not to make light of all of our feminist leanings, but sometimes you really need the treat of an exterior boost. The beauty experts at the Estee Lauder counter feel ya, sister, and they’re offering you an ultimate relax and recharge opportunity during their Estee Lauder Spa Event on Friday, July 27 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. You’ll be led into a relaxing spa room for a consultation and facial with an esthetician and then when you’re all gooey and glowy, they’ll give you a makeover at the counter, introducing you to a new look that’ll have you reconsidering your standby lip gloss. Call NorthPark Neiman Marcus (8687 North Central Expressway) at 214-363-8311, extension 2138, for your free appointment.
Fri., July 27, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2012

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
