the scoop on the strip at Las Vegas

Hi Ocean Dreamers!

Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my last post! Glad you could read up on all of my fun. So finally...the scoop on Vegas. I can't believe that it was nearly a week ago when I went there! What a better way to remember by memories than by sharing them with all of you.
I'm going to bombard you with pictures and tell you what I did along the way, so here we go.
BK and I go to Vegas for the lights, shows, and glamorous hotels. I only touched a slot machine one time the entire time I was there and it quickly stole my $1 in literally 30 seconds. I certainly didn't give any slot machines my time of day after that. I wish I would have tried this Dirty Dancing machine - it looks entertaining. ;)
While we were there we saw some beautiful hotels. I had never gone to their pools and this time around we didn't actually lay out at a pool because it was so hot, but we took a walk to a few pools at the really nice hotels. This one in particular was gorgeous. I also loved the flowers in the Bellagio.
One day during the day I ventured out to the Wax Museum while BK was feeling under the weather. I think he was just dehydrated because of all the heat! It was about 105 degrees and we had to keep guzzling the water or our energy was zapped rather quick. As you can see in BK's absence I had no trouble making friends with Daniel Craig. He's mighty fine looking, don't you think?!
I made friends with Jessica Simpson and tried to be as hot as her, as you can see, but just couldn't pull it off. ;) I'm a big fan of Jess though so I had to give it my best shot. Gosh I would kill for her abs.
I thought JLo looked gorgeous in the wax museum. Oh, and I have to input that the odd thing about the museum is that even though you are surrounded by famous wax people, they all look so real that you get confused with the "real" people who are standing around you. Mentally my brain just couldn't compute at times who was real and who was not. They looked that real and true to life!
I have many more pictures of my wax friends, but I'll only do another post if you insist. For now I thought giving you a taste of my wax friends would suffice.
I also fell in love with my loose fitting t-shirts. They are so comfy and uber chic! Pairing them with a light weight pair of short leggings was the perfect outfit for me in the heat. If you have a few minutes to spare please head on over to read Get My Loose Fitting Tee Vegas Inspired Outfit. I also blogged about my Christian Louboutin experience, Christian Louboutin at Ceasar's Palace, at If The Shoe Doesn't Fit's blog. Thanks! :)
As well as site seeing, BK and I also managed to watch a Circque show called Mystere. Honestly, it was my second favorite Cirque show; my absolute favorite is Kooza. The fantasy element was beautiful and some of the creatures were so enchanting. You'll have to find out yourself by seeing it!
Of course I also managed to get some shopping in. A darling blogger recommended to me to get a pair of Earthies, and when I came across The Walking Company, I couldn't resist. I walked miles in these shoes and you heard no complaints from me! Believe me, fashion and feet are finally my friends!!
Also...pleeeeeaaaasssseeee check out Sugar Factory. I fell in love with this sugary shop while I was there and let's be honest, their chocolate covered gummies were out of this world. Check out this site ASAP and if you buy chocolate covered gummy bears please think of me. Okay? Thanks. They had a ginormous cafe and shop on the strip and inside the hotels - super cute tees and very delicious candy.
I also bought a few of these chocolate bars for BK and myself. I got myself this darling vintage dark chocolate candy bar and kept the wrapping of the sweet pinup girl after I had finished the chocolate off. Good thing I walked so much to burn all of the chocolate off!
Okay I think I've given you enough of Vegas to digest. Any suggestions of what we need to do or see next time we go? I feel like Vegas is a gigantic play ground and you only begin to touch a part of the play set while you are there. This time we were on the swinging chairs the entire time. Next time maybe the slide?! Anyway, you get my point. There is so much to do!!

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a lovely week!


  1. I went to the wax museum here in NY for the first time and I see a couple of the people are the same. I also didn't think J-Lo looked like herself.
