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

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.

NY

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.

Zipline

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?
