Park Yourself at The Shops at Park Lane!

This past Saturday I attended an event with the DFW Bloggers Network hosted by The Shops at Park Lane, the shopping area located across the street from Northpark Mall. I've been there before but it's been awhile and the area wasn't as developed as it is now. And color me impressed because there was awesome shopping, good eats and lots of fun!
Drinking champagne at Bailey's Prime Plus cuz yeah, that's just what I do....

No pics from our lunch at Gordon Biersch, I was too busy chowing down on my spinach salad with grilled chicken. Delish!
 Me and the ladies at Freshberry.(By the way, isn't Ivonne's hair (in yellow) like so super shiny??? I'm obsessed.)
 
 My coconut yogurt with strawberries, mango and pineapple. YUM!

 Cris from My Fashion Juice (Is she not adorable?)

 Beautiful flowers at Whole Foods
  
Browsing the goods at Ulta
 
Goodie bags from Whole Foods, this is definitely the best one in the area, it has everything! You can chill your wine in 3 minutes (need), they have concierge shopping services (need) and the best part:
  a cart-o-lator! It's an escalator for your shopping cart that travels down to the parking garage. Of course I wanted to ride in the cart but alas, no riders allowed. 

Cute Katie from Fashion Dinosaur, you know I loved the crinoline, don't ya?


One guess as to WHO won a Marc Jacobs watch courtesy of Nordstrom Rack?!?

Here is a photo of me and my fellow cohorts after a long day of chatting, tasting and shopping:

Oh, you look soooo pretty. Love the dress with the clutch, and your hair. Looks like a fun time, and the weather was nice and warm Saturday, so that was an added bonus, I'm sure.
