All around the globe the after hours shopping extravaganza, Fashion’s Night Out, celebrated it’s fourth glorious year. With stores in over 500 cities nationwide, FNO was bigger and better than ever. Of course, when presented with free booze, parties, celebs and great shopping, more than a few chose to head to the nearest FNO celebration. Here in Dallas retailers pulled out all the stops for Fashion’s Night Out on Sept. 6 with a jam-packed schedule of fashion shows, centers, retailers and boutiques in the city to create a one-night fashion extravaganza that celebrated Dallas’ international reputation as a world-class shopping destination. This year SWAGG Magazine was pleased to partner with Brahmin Handbags at Galleria Dallas to put on the HOTTEST FNO event event. It was so much fun to see who stopped by such as local celebs Lauren Przybyl from “GoodDay Fox 4”, Tara Harper from “Paws in the City” and “Bravos Most Eligible Dallas” and Holly Quartaro, fashion stylist at the Galleria Dallas. Everyone was taking a photo opp on the red capet, Dj D-Train was rockin the 1’s & 2’s as store manager Josh was workin it for the camera’s! Kendra Mcfarlane of MyGi’s Desserts made us an amazing cake incorporating both SWAGG Magazine and Brahmin’s FNO tote into the design of the cake! Luvs it! We had a blast! Thank you to all the retailers who took the time and energy to create exciting events this year. And most of all, thanks to all the wonderful shoppers who came out to celebrate. See you next year!

Cook Hall

he new restaurant is scheduled to open at W Dallas on November 7th. Dallas’ Jones Baker is designing the restaurant interior with the vision of a modern interpretation of the chef’s hall. Imagine hanging out at your favorite chef’s house, sampling their latest creations. This is a hall for gathering, great food and drink, and socializing. New steel framed windows announce Cook Hall to the W Hotel Living Room. No longer hidden away, the restaurant is welcoming and inclusive. The mixologist inspired cocktails are casually announced on the blackboards along with special food offerings. To add to the personality of the bar, vintage cocktail paraphernalia will be displayed and used by the bartenders. Distressed wood walls, warm lighting and an eclectic art collection add to the warmth and charm of the concept.

The new Cook Hall restaurant bar program is under the direction of Belinda Chang (alum of New

York’s Monkey Bar and The Modern, as well as Charlie Trotter’s of Chicago).

They will feature vintage beer taps and serve boutique wines. Chang has also designed the craft cocktail movement’s answer to bottle service with a signature Cook Hall Cocktail Kit. The kit can be ordered for as few as two guests and as many as 10, and will include a spirit of the guest’s choice, with tinctures and mixers to develop unique custom cocktails tableside and a recipe card to take home.

The gastropub fare is composed mostly of shareable small plates such as a snack of roasted radish crostini, a light bite salad selection including a kale Caesar salad, various house- made charcuteries, and a sandwich/

The British are coming! The British are

coming! Yet again! It seems lately a new British act hits our airwaves almost each month, and with a cult following. With acts such as The Wanted, Cher Lloyd and, of course One Direction it seems right to say that the Brits are taking over the music scene. The ringleaders in this invasion are the UK X Factor boy band stereotype that this band has mastered with training from X Factor mentor Simon Cowell. With their hit single “What Makes You Beautiful” hitting the top of the billboard charts and their debut album “Up All Night” doing the same it seems this group will truly be around for quite a while. However, there is an alternative for those who are not into the squeaky clean image of One Direction in the form of The Wanted. They also hit America hard with their hit singles “Glad You Came” and newest song “Chasing The Sun”. This boy band has a party hard rep that shakes the stereotypical boy band image Now, don’t fret. There are some solo acts getting into the mix too! With her hit song “Want You Back” Cher Lloyd is turning

American girls into her “Bratz”. Lloyd’s fame rose from her link to One Direction. They were on the same season of The X Factor in the UK. Another One Direction connection that has come stateside is Olly Murs with his song “Heart Skips A Beat”. Murs has been on tour throughout the U.S. with One Direction as their opening act and has created quite the buzz Rebecca Ferguson has hit the the states with her soulful album entitled “Heaven”, featuring the single “Nothing’s Real But Love”. This soulful siren was also on the same season with One siren by the name of Ellie Goulding has been on the radio with heavy rotation of her single “Lights”. Goulding’s album of the same name is acclaimed to be a sound worth listening to. Finally, there is former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole with her Calvin Harris produced single “Call My Name”. Cole who was a member of UK girl group Girls Aloud went solo and released two albums in the UK with great reception and now has planned to take the U.S by storm with her third album “A Million Lights”. So is it safe to say the British are taking over the music scene. With more acts from the UK planning to come stateside in the future such as: The Saturdays, Labrinth, Sugababes, Roll Deep, JLS and more, looks like America might need to get familiar with some British slang.

I

by Sara Emberson

am a huge fan of using all natural things and believe the majority of what we need has been graciously provided right outside our front doors. Nature is full of ingredients that have multiple purposes, not only for cooking and the inside of our bodies, but to help nourish our skin and hair as well. One of my favorite of these is raw organic coconut oil that can

while getting a facial. Susan, who had done many facials on me before, had recently added it to her nightly routine and loved melted and became a liquid once it touched the heat of my skin. So I started experimenting with other ideas and would mix half and half with my favorite scented body lotion just to give it that extra touch of moisture and shine. I soon came across a whole list of other ideas for this wonder oil!

- this oil has anti aging/wrinkling properties. So go ahead, put some under your eyes, smooth over entire face and rub into you lips. Muah!

- Mix equal parts coconut oil and baking soda until you reach a consistency you like. Store in refridgerator

- what an easy and affordable way to keep your skin smooth after a shave while not clogging your pores either.

- You might be wondering pulling is utilizing oils such as this to pull the negative bacteria and toxins out of the hard to reach crevices of our mouth that

get to. These oils extract the negatives, allowing space for positive and healing minerals to be absorbed back into the body. This method has been known to help conditions like chronic fatigue, allergies, diabetes, PMS, migrane headaches, chronic skin problems and more. To do this: put a spoonful of oil in your mouth for about a few mins while you swish back and forth through teeth. Seem weird enough? But

- coconut oil is perfect for any type of irritant on the skin. Burns, scars, prevents blistering and peeling and healed.

take a small amount and rub into the scalp then begin working it down to your ends. Tie hair up in shower cap and let set for a bout 10 mins. Then shower shampoo and condition as usual. Or for wet hair, after you get out of the shower, take a very small amount in palms and rub into the ends of wet hair and let dry as ususal. For more coarse hair, coconut oil is a great way to restore natural oil to the hair and can be used daily as a leave in conditioner on wet and dry hair alike. **TIP add just a small amount or few drops to your shampoo or conditioner for a daily softness that will help restore the hair shaft and produce strong shiny hair.

- I’m sure this seems to be the most obvious use. If the thought of spooning it up and oil pulling leaves you diet by replacing any cooking oil with coconut oil!

NBA Draft -- scored 30 or more points seven times. He signed a two-year, $8.5 million dollar contract with the Mavs with the second year being a player option, translated as this basically being Mayo’s contract year.

That’s when Mavs owner Mark Cuban and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson worked some magic and added Elton Brand, Chris Kaman, Dahntay Jones, Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo through free agency and trades. The summer transactions also included the drafting of rookies Jared Cunningham, Bernard James and Jae Crowder.

Cuban added. “But, you know, we’ve had a plan. We’ve had a plan for the last several years. We took some calculated bets, we took some chances, we went for some things … and sometimes the best deals are the ones you don’t make.”

he Dallas Mavericks were expected to land

the Oklahoma City Thunder. When All-Star point guard and The Colony native Deron Williams spurned his hometown team to stay with the Nets, accompanied by guards Jason Kidd and Jason Terry signing elsewhere, fans began to question if the Mavs were even going to have a team around Dirk Nowitzki that would make the playoffs.

While Brand and Kaman will help Dirk up front, look for Mayo to thrive as the starting shooting guard alongside Collison in Dallas’ new-look backcourt. Mayo will be able to attack the rim with a greater frequency than in Memphis where the offense was solely focused on big men Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. During his rookie season, Mayo -- the third overall pick in the 2008

“A lot of people going into the summer were kind of looking at us going, ‘What the heck are you guys doing?’ And I know there was a lot of blood pressure that rose up, particularly when [local sports radio personalities] were on the

Home games of note include the New York Knicks (Nov. 21), Los Angeles Lakers (Nov. 24, Feb. 24), Miami Heat (Dec. 20), San Antonio Spurs (Dec. 30, Jan. 25), Oklahoma City Thunder (Jan. 18, March 17), Boston Celtics (March 22), Los Angeles Clippers (March 26) and Chicago Bulls (March 30).


It’s an oft-repeated mantra by sports commentators that, as an owner of a franchise, you never want to look out the is no worse state for a team to be in than that of stasis. The fan base gets bored and frustrated; the atmosphere in the stadium stagnant; the preseason expectations tepid. Sound familiar, Cowboys fans? It’s been a long, slow trip, but welcome to NFL Irrelevancy. Taking in the Dallas-Tampa Bay game at a local sports bar last Sunday, I was struck by the humdrum nature of the crowd. Sure, the beat down at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks the previous week went a long ways in dampening the chest-thumping, but the attitude of the crowd was surprisingly guarded. It’s like they were so tired of having their stomachs punched by their team that they refused to do more than simply hope for a good performance. And the mundane showing by the crowd at Cowboys Stadium absolutely poured through the television screen and infected the vibe in the bar – as if 90,000 people were doing nothing more than sitting on their hands watching an episode of The Mob Doctor. Granted, the combination of abhorrent offensive play by both the Buccaneers and Cowboys, combined with the Keystone Kops-esque exploits of the replacement referees, produced one of the ugliest NFL games I’ve ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on, but I was still taken aback by the emotional void of this Sunday afternoon. Since their last Super Bowl victory in 1995, when Jerry Jones had his franchise on the top of the sports universe, this team has seemingly been in a race with the Clevelands and Jacksonvilles to see who can disappoint their fan base the most. Their current lofty status among the league’s elite teams is nothing but a hollow ruse, similar to Kim from The Real Housewives of Atlanta: all big, gaudy and shiny, and you can’t take your eyes off her, but take off the wig, push-up bra and make up, and you’re left with a talentless carcass. A quick look at the past seventeen seasons is a sobering exercise for Cowboys fans, and the likely reason for the “failure-is-imminent” attitude that exists today.

-Since the departure of Jimmy Johnson, the Cowboys have had six coaches in nineteen years who have produced a combined winning percentage of .534.

-More recent damage to fans’ trust of of the teams’ eight losses were choke jobs of the highest order (remember the losses to the Jets, Lions, Patriots, Cardinals and Giants?).

-Before their win on opening night this season, the Cowboys had lost their previous seven straight appearances on Sunday Night Football.

game and Super Bowls – have won just TWO playoff games since 1995, one in 1996 under Barry Switzer, and another THIRTEEN years later in 2009 under Wade Phillips. Only the Bills, Bengals, Browns, Lions Texans, Chiefs and Redskins have won two or fewer playoff games during that stretch. That’s the company this Dallas now keeps. Ouch. So, even though his team is constantly on national TV, endlessly being dissected on ESPN and selling out stadiums around the league, no amount of searching for Glory Holes or rapping about pizza can distract the fans from what this team has become: a lower tier performer. The team appears rudder-less at times and is aging rapidly before our eyes talented players – Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant – to be able to utilize the skills Cowboys fans keep insisting they have. (To be fair, I think Romo is actually criticized more harshly here in Dallas by Cowboys fans than anywhere else. There are about 20 teams that would trade their signal caller for Romo right now). Luckily for the team, fans and Jerry, there is still a lot of time remaining this season to get things on course to produce a successful season. But, if things remain the same, one has to wonder how resilient the fans will be after another 8-8 year and no playoffs?
