Girls Weekend Part 2 | Hyatt Regency Dallas + HUGE GIVEAWAY

hyatt regency dallas north park review

Happy Thursday! We are so excited to bring you part two of our girls weekend at the Hyatt Regency Dallas! If you missed any details from our part one you can read it here. So after an amazing Saturday morning of touring and shopping at Neiman Marcus, we headed to NorthPark Center. This is definitely one of our favorite places to shop at in Dallas.

There are so many great stores and eating options. We headed over to Nordstrom to check out the Anniversary Sale {see our full try on post here} and had a blast getting to talk to the Director of Artistry & Training, Joel from Hourglass Cosmetics. It was so great to learn some background information on the company as well as hear about new products that are in development. We also purchased the special edition kit from the Anniversary Sale. Such a great deal!!

After some time in the makeup, shoe and clothing departments we headed to brunch at The Theodore. Let’s just say, this place is amazing!!!! So tasty and the decor is so chic. Their blueberry muffins are the best we’ve ever eaten!! If you are ever in the area you definitely have to stop by to sample their in house bakery items. After a delicious frappe, homemade hash browns, eggs, and the tastiest fruit bowl we were stuffed and ready to tackle more shopping!

NorthPark Center has more than 100 stores and both high end and main mainstream brands that will meet the needs of any shopper. We loved getting to stop by the Kate Spade and Tory Burch stores {we don’t have them in OK so we love getting to see merchandise in person} – not to mention all our faves like Ann Taylor, Loft and Make Up Forever. It was such a fun afternoon shopping and we found some great items for a fall capsule wardrobe {see post here}.

After we could shop no more it was time to head to our hair appointments at the Dry Bar which is located in the mall on level one. We’ve never had our hair done there before and we were so excited to try it out. We were greeted by our two hair stylists that were so kind and immediately offered us something to drink and took us back to get our hair washed. They explained the menu of options to us and we decided to select the “cosmo” style as it’s the perfect combination of volume and curls.

While our hair was getting blowdried to perfection, we loved learning more about the products and the founder of the brand. We also learned about the special edition Nordstrom anniversary kit that Dry Bar put together. It offers so many great products, including the 3-day bender curling iron that our stylists used, at a fabulous discounted price. Couldn’t pass up such a bargain and our kits actually arrive tomorrow! Thank you so much Kelly and Erika for the fabulous blowouts!

We grabbed a few quick pics of our bouncy new styles and headed back to the hotel to change for dinner. From there we headed to the Reunion Tower Observation Deck at our hotel, Hyatt Regency Dallas. The GeO-Deck is 470 feet up and allows you to experience a 360-degree view of downtown Dallas. It was beyond beautiful!

From there we headed to our reservations at the Five Sixty restaurant in Reunion Tower. 50 stories up we enter the most gorgeous view of floor-to-ceiling windows that allow you to see a 360-degree views of Dallas as it revolves. The menu features Wolfgang Puck’s modern interpretation of Asian dishes. The crispy shrimp and lobster spring rolls with honey ten-spice sauce were our favorite appetizer! That was followed by the Assam Curry Diver Scallops.

The evening was perfect! Such a relaxing yet sophisticated dining atmosphere with the most delicious Asian inspired dishes. Whitney and I so enjoyed ending our girls weekend at Five Sixty.

    I would love to win the get away to Dallas. Shopping and traveling are my two favorite hobbies. The Hyatt is spectacular.; like staying in the lap of luxury. I love following The Double Take Girls to see what I NEED. I have made many purchases for myself and my family by following you. I live in a very small town with limited shopping. Going to Big D shopping would be awesome!!!

    I would love to win this getaway and take my husband out for a getaway! We have two small children and live in a small town so we rarely go out just the two of us. It would be a blast to be near a mall and to be able to shop and take a break from the stresses of life!

    This trip looks like so much fun! I love North Park Center, especially Tommy Bahama, Nespresso, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom.
    If I won I would celebrate by telling my sweet little family that we get to go on a Dallas adventure! My little loves the American Girl store there, so it would be an awesome get a way.
    Perhaps you two could h lip me shop before we go? I’m need a style intervention! ?

    August 1, 2016 / 3:15 pm

    Great blog post! You girls are gorgeous and I appreciate all your tips and resources! I would love to win this and surprise my husband with a getaway! We just celebrated 14 years and didn’t do more than have dinner so this would be so memorable. Keep up the good work!

    I would LOVE to win this to surprise my husband for our 13th Anniversary which is next Tuesday, August 9th! I am a stay at home mom to two young daughters and I never get out! We don’t have any family here to watch my daughters, because all of my family is in Tulsa or Dallas! I would love to drop my children off in Oklahoma with grandma, then head to Dallas to see family and then have a shopping day and dinner out with my husband! Nordstrom is my fav and your dinner looks perfect. I am pretty sure my husband would die of shock if I had a whole kid free surprise vacation planned for him! Thanks for the chance and your blog is my fav. It always helps me save money and that’s huge for a single income family! 😉

  39. August 1, 2016 / 11:43 pm

    A warm weather Dallas shopping weekend would be a fantastic escape from Chicago this winter. Fingers crossed 😉

    I would LOVE to win so I could celebrate the end of my summer vaca before I start graduate school again! I would take my sister who is a nurse as well and we would shop, dine, wine, and celebrate being together in another city! She lives in Cincinnati and I live 400 miles away from her so I can’t imagine a better trip! If there’s enough room, then Momma bear is being invited too! Can you imagine us girls taking on Dallas??! Fingers crossed that two nurses + mom take Dallas together before the summer is up!
