So, it’s been a bit over a week since I’ve been back from Vegas and I already miss it! From lounging by our hotel pool, to our crazy daytime adventures, to the great food, to our wild nights… it was such a blast! My friends Vanessa, Jay & I had the chance to curate our Vegas trip with the help of ExpediaCA and their newly launched #VegasYou feature. If you’re planning a trip to Vegas, I’d suggest that you check it out, especially if you’ve never been. It’s designed to help you pick out the best place to stay based on what you want to do in Vegas i.e.; hotels with the best pools, best fine dining, best shopping etc.. We’re all suckers for fine dining, minimal design and more boutique style hotels, so the SLS Las Vegas won us over!
Another cool thing about the #VegasYou feature is that when it separates the hotels into different categories, it also breaks down what each place has to offer – making it super easy for you to scout the places that you want to check out aka a time saver.
If you’re heading to Vegas, the best advice I can give you is to go there with an open mind and a good group of friends. It’s a place where anything and everything can happen… honestly, truly (insert Joanne The Scammer voice)! Some of the highlights for me, had to be our helicopter ride over the Vegas strip at night – so beautiful, our spontaneous road trip to the dessert, our last supper at Mr.Chow and our visit to the Neon Museum (who knew that Vegas had so much history, it was really cool to learn)!
As always, I’ve listed a few places worth checking out while in Vegas (mostly to eat & party) + snapped a few pics!
To eat: IN-N-OUT – need I say more? Mr. Chow – the vibe & the food are so on point! Lavo – the patio has a great view of the strip! Beauty & Essex supper club vibes! The Perq – great breakfast spot!
To Party: OMNIA – craziest nightclub I’ve experienced! Marquee – a fun crowd! The Light – interesting crowd but the most fun we had!
New York – the city that never sleeps… isn’t that the truth! About two weeks ago, I came back from my first NYFW experience – which was L-I-T! New York is a lot of fun anytime of the year but add in the chaos that is Fashion Week and everything is brought to another level! From attending shows, to meetings with brands, to the after parties, there was barely any time to sleep (thank God for eye cream haha). I spent a lot of time in Soho, which has become my new favourite day time hang out (sorry Park Ave) and the Meatpacking district at night… Le Bain anyone? I put together a list of places that I’d recommend checking out, the next time you’re in New York & snapped a few pics to share with you guys!
To Eat: Mr. Chow – for the food , Tao – for the atmosphere , Jack’s Wife Freda – for brunch, Freds Madison Avenue – a quick bite + drink post shopping!
To Lounge: NOMO Soho – I love everything about this place, I always have the best time there! Le Bain – They have a jacuzzi by the dance floor that people ACTUALLY use and the view from their rooftop is vibes!
To Party: Electric Room, Up & Down, The Box – it might be a lot for some people but it’s so much fun!
To Shop: Barney’s – retail heaven, Nike Lab – for my swoosh obsessed folks, Opening Ceremony – If you’re street style obsessed, this is a must!
Until next time,
