When in Vegas…

Main Pool

I took a week off for vacation, went to Vegas and had a blast.  I don’t really care much for gambling and all the smoking but I do like walking around exploring the hotels and shops and getting to relax and swim.  Here’s a small glimpse of how it went.

What I Packed

Travel Essentials


Some of my travel essentials.  It’s good to pack light and take travel sized products when possible.  For skincare, I  keep it simple.  Sunscreen, cleanser, toner and moisturizer.  Optional: Eye cream with SPF (I used Dermalogica’s Total Eye Care SPF 15) and if you use any antioxidant serums, i.e. vitamin C or E, you can layer them under your sunscreen.  For makeup, I really love the Urban Decay Naked palette where you can create natural or smokey bronze looks.

Fun Under the Sun… Er, Shade

Seeking Shade

Pool Essentials

Pool side essentials: Sunscreen, a good book and a relaxing jacuzzi.

Special Occasion Night

Dinner En Route

Me and one of my sisters en route to dinner.

Tommy BahamasWe had a great dinner at Tommy Bahama’s located in the Las Vegas Town Square.  If you’re ever in Vegas, stop on by, especially for dessert.  Key Lime Pie (love the tartness) and Triple Chocolate Cake (not as overly sweet as it seems, at least to me) are amazing!

Before Show

Waiting for the show to start at The Mirage.  For a fast, special occasion look, I like a bold red lip, bronze eyeshadow on the lid, black eyeliner, mascara and a swipe of bronzer.  Products used: Urban Decay Naked palette eyeshadow in Smog, Urban Decay Glide-On 24/7 Eye Pencil in Black Velvet and Sephora Collection Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in No. 10 Red Essence.

Sight Seeing/Activities

Paris at Night

Until I can see the actual one in Paris, this will suffice.


The New York, New York hotel view from the M&M store.

Hershey's World

Calling all chocolate lovers, visit Hershey’s World located inside the NY, NY hotel.  There’s an impressive Statue of Liberty replica made out of chocolate and some yummy treats.


One of the best parts of my vacation: getting to zipline at night passing a dome of lights and images!  It’s smaller than most, but well, baby steps first, right?

Zipping by through Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas at night although, to be honest, I didn’t see really notice the dome or lights because I was busy hanging on for dear life!  It was a bit nerve wrecking at first but once you get the courage, it’s an amazing experience!

If you ever find yourself in Vegas, definitely try ziplining!  How do you like to spend your vacation?

  1. Awesome! When I saw that picture of the pool I knew that had to be the Cancun resort! I love Town Square as well! I am so going to go to that restaurant for dessert now! lol. Just down the street! So crazy! I wish we would have known each other back then. We could have met up. Though I’m sure our paths will cross one day. 🙂 Also I love Fremont Street! I like to people watch there and there are a lot of interesting people lol. Ron and I plan on going before we move. 🙂

    • Yes! Such a shame. I had so much fun and who knew you were so close. They have such awesome dessert so definitely go! The food is also pretty good too if you ever want to try it. 🙂 I hope to still be able to meet up one day. Oh my gosh, yes Fremont Street is filled with so many different people. Kind of reminds me a bit of Hollywood Blvd, lol. Crazy, crazy.

      • Yes that is a shame! Now every time I drive by the Cancun resort I think of you lol. I drive by it all the time seeing as it’s so close to where I live! I hope to meet one day as well! That would be so awesome! I have only met a couple of bloggers in person so far and it was really nice! 🙂

      • From the pictures I saw the pool looked really neat! Our pool here at my apartment is nice, its has a little rock waterfall lol. I’ve been thinking about going swimming sometime. Yeah I just met Jacqueline from A Vibrant Day and she is like one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and she is just absolutely beautiful in person! I just adore Jacqueline! I also at the same time met Britney from All Things Britney Lee. I don’t know if you follow her. She is so nice and beautiful too! She actually lives here in Vegas as well but I know she is quite busy with her work. 🙂

      • Yes, go swimming. Trust me, you’ll sleep very comfortable later on. 🙂 Oh yeah I saw the pics from Jacqueline and Britney and it seemed so fun. How lucky. I know Jaqueline was here in LA not too long ago too. No, I don’t think I follow Britney but I will-thanks for the recommendation!

      • Yeah that’s a good idea! I might just hit up the pool tomorrow or something since it’s been so hot here. I remember Jacqueline telling me she was going to LA and it made me think of you. 🙂

      • Awe too bad you guys couldn’t have met up. That would have been so neat! Maybe she was just wanting to spend time with her hubby. ❤ Yeah I plan on getting to the pool soon. Hopefully sometime this weekend. 🙂
