The Beauty of I love to travel, so finding perfect moments to escape from working hard so I can play hard requires a few festive holidays to intervene. This year, I traded a trip to Miami Art Basel for Thanksgiving weekend skiing with my family in Bachelor Gulch — why not get the winter season started with fresh powder, toasty fires and decadent s'mores. Skiing from the top of a mountain with no keyboard in sight is pure escapism. For the New Year festivities, my husband and I decided to take a last-minute trip to Hong Kong — far away in the Far East, where hunting for Oriental treasures takes one's mind off the next pending deadline. However, searching for unique stories to share with you is what I love to do. So this month … We visit the impeccable home of art consultant Cindy Schwartz, cue the oxford shoe and "Step into the Office of Angela Scott," our Style DNA feature. We're the media sponsor for DIFFA/Dallas, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of its wildly successful gala, this year titled "House of DIFFA No. 25"; read our special section for the full scoop. And, visit our online social calendar for event listings on our newly minted site — but do make note of our Hot Tickets, and read "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves." Don't forget, French conceptual artist Loris Gréaud arrives in Dallas this month, lauded as quite the affaire française; the exhibition "The Unplayed Notes Museum" opens at the Dallas Contemporary January 18 (through March 21). If you missed our November interview with Mr. Gréaud, you can read it on The New Year brings thoughtful reflection, resolution and rejuvenation — and after my inspiring trip, I am refreshed, recharged and ready to conquer 2015. Wishing you a fortuitous and prosperous New Year!

Available exclusively in Texas at the Gucci boutique in NorthPark Center, each Gucci Eye, Gucci Face, Gucci Lip, Gucci Nail and skin product is based on archive Gucci colors, called the Iconic Six — black, gold, red, ottanio, copper and bronze. Packaging is based on vintage glamour, and the heritage GG pattern is emblazoned on the barrel of the lipstick and the bold Guccissima pattern is debossed into powders and packaging. Coming later this year are skincare products to round out the cosmetics collection. $29 to $79, at the Gucci boutique. Linden Wilson I t's official: The McKinney Avenue Contemporary will be on the move in Spring 2016. Its first 20 years were spent at its namesake location, 3120 McKinney, a former factory for Dr. Billy Potts' Longhorn Leather that was converted two decades ago by architects Steve Lawson and Truett James into a cool Yves Klein-blue-painted spatial canvas for cutting- edge exhibitions and performances. Like the extraordinary move and rebranding of the Dallas Contemporary, the new MAC will rise in about 18 months in a gentrifying 'hood that's become the next arts Mecca, thanks to RE Gallery, dealer James Cope and the Bowdon Foundation's just announced arts center. Cue the Cedars. Patron/developer/MAC co-founder Claude Albritton III has just inked the deal for a prime 2.16 acres on 1601 South Ervay, across from Heritage Village and east of Southside Lamar. The campus encompasses five buildings, in a complex that was once Ben Griffin Ford. The MAC will occupy one of the brick fortress-like dealership structures. Also expect commercial galleries, live theater, a sculpture garden, coffeehouse, eatery, wine and beer garden, and the preservation of the Pastime Tavern. Meanwhile, the current MAC continues programming at its McKinney home through fall 2015. Coming attraction: The Dallas Medianale, presented by the Video Association of Dallas, opens Friday, January 9 (through March 7). Catherine D.

First, Jessica Barouche introduced us to the finer French things in life with her Dallas-based consulting company, BeFrnch. Now la jolie fille has taken it to the next level with OuiPlease, a subscription service that delivers luxurious fashion, beauty and home goodies straight to your door every two months. The first parcel, called Paris, I Miss You, shipped in December and included Sothys skincare products, a 1951 Maison Française clutch, Marlette cookie mix and a Popup Paris candle. Sign up, and brands including Christian Lacroix, Atelier Cologne, Mineroche and Ku de Coeur will find their way to you, with each box brimming with products representing different regions in France. Just in time for Valentine's Day, the next delivery promises to conjure a romantic trip to Normandy. "The way we shop in France is completely different than in the U.S. — the process of selecting a product is drawn out," Barouche says. "We walk in the store, we touch, smell, leave, then come back to purchase. In the U.S., everyone is very online-oriented. OuiPlease is a great combination of these two cultures. You can order online, but we take the time to curate the brands that are included, and each customer has a special moment when they open their luxury parcel." Parfait! Single parcel $175, month-to-month $150, annual prepaid membership $650, at Linden Wilson PARTIAL TO THIS PARCEL Party: Mulberry opening fête 20 Jessica Barouche Hello to The MAC at the Cedars, come 2016 Adieu to The MAC on McKinney GUCCI H appy New Year, and welcome back!
