Today’s post has me so ready for a beach vacation! Only sad thing is, I don’t have a Spring Break anymore. Struggles of growing up I guess! All of you college girls don’t take your week long break of fun in the sun for granted! Us post-grad working adults would trade places with you in a second!

Vegas Travel Guide + Video

Posted in Travel

I have been so excited to share this post with all of you! Going through, and editing all these photos was so fun and made me want to plan my next trip. Warning: if you’re hungry reading this post will only make you more, lol. 

If you didn’t know I went to Las Vegas with my best friend Rachel, and her mom and sister for a little birthday trip for Rachel! To see what I packed click here.

Snack @ Serendipity // Order a small if you aren’t planning on sharing. And yes the frozen hot chocolate is just as good as everyone says!

Dinner @ Nobu // This is definitely for the more adventurous eater (aka not me) They had amazing dessert though – the best green tea ice cream I have ever had!

Show @ Planet Hollywood // We saw Britney Spears! Honestly, growing up I wasn’t the typical girl listening to Britney and Aaron Carter so I wasn’t crazily fangirling the whole time but it was still the best experience! She is a great performer, despite what you might think of her. You have to go if you’re a Britney fan!

Day 2: Saturday

Lunch @ Giada’s // This whole restaurant was decorated basically like a bloggers dream. Think white marble everywhere, little sofa chairs and the occasional decor piece on wooden shelves. I’m gushing even picturing it. Also they only played throwbacks the whole time and I was not complaining (Blink 182, Nelly, etc.)  Besides the decor the food was amazing. I ordered the margherita pizza (told you, I’m not really adventurous) and I swear the crust was french bread. It was the best pizza I had ever had… honestly. If you’re going to order an appetizer get the bread or meatballs.

Dinner @ CUT // If you’re a big steak, or meat person you will have to come here one night! I honestly could do without meat for the rest of my life, but actually ordered a steak and thought it was really good! For an appetizer order the cavatappi mac and cheese.

Show @ Bellagio// We saw the Cirque du Soleil O Show and if you ever got to Vegas you HAVE to put this on your must list. I have seen Cirque du Soleil once before so I already knew it was going to be amazing, but add water to an already amazing show and you get this. The whole time Rachel and I were in such shock- the things those people can do is crazy.


Already planning my next trip to Vegas! There’s so much there and it’s impossible to see and do everything! If you want any more recommendations or wanna chat more about my trip please feel free to comment below, or shoot me an e-mail!

Weekend in Vegas / What I’m Packing

Posted in Lifestyle, Style, Travel

Guys, I can’t even believe it. I leave for Vegas tonight! I have never been, and I am so excited to finally be going to the city I have heard so much about! Let’s hope it lives up to all the expectations I have.

I am going for a long weekend with my best friend and her family for a little pre- birthday celebration! Rachel and I have been wanting to go for awhile now, so we both are so happy it’s finally all happening!

I will be posting lots on Instagram, and Snapchat so make sure you’re following along on the adventure! And of course, I will be vlogging and snapping lots of photos for a travel guide once I get home! So be on the lookout for that to follow.

 If you have a Vegas trip in your future, or even a long weekend away I hope this can guide you along!

Airport wear

Graphic tee, leggings and Birkenstocks. Our flight is at 9:30 tonight, so obviously I’m choosing the comfy route. I packed another comfy shirt for the plane ride home, and will re-wear these leggings! I always try to wear the easiest shoes to airports because security is such a pain! You don’t want to waste too much time by unzipping and zipping, or lacing.

2 Day outfits

So typically when you hear Vegas you automatically think night life. You don’t really think about all the things to do during the day, or what to wear for that matter. So I was struggling when shopping because I had no idea what the heck I wanted to bring! I was trying not to overpack for this trip, so decided on jeans and a lightweight sweater for one day, then a dress for the other!

 

2 Night outfits

This is the fun part! I am so excited to dress up and explore the night life of Vegas. We’re seeing Cirque De Soleil our first night, then going to Britney Saturday!

Make sure to come back to the blog next week for a whole trip re-cap! And if you have any recommendations of places we have to see let me know!

The Packing Guide You’ve Been Looking For

Hi girlies, I have missed yall! It seems like forever since I have last posted.
I am currently packing for a weekend in Austin, and taking a quick break to write this post for you guys! While I was packing I thought hey this would be a great idea for a blog post, so here we are with my packing guide! Pretty last minute I got invited by my best friend to join her cousin and a bunch of their friends to hang out in Austin for the weekend. They rented a party barge and just invited a bunch of their friends. The only solid plan I know is that we’re doing that on Saturday, but everything else is up in the air. So this leaves me in kind of a packing rut. Read more…

New Orleans Recap + VLOG

Posted in Travel

The best way to celebrate your twenty-third birthday is to spend a few days in New Orleans with your best friend. I was pretty bummed out about turning the big two three so I figured I needed a fun get-away to liven my mood.

Post- Grad Trip Recap

Posted in Travel

Happy Monday ! Hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend. How did you celebrate?

Short re-cap on my life: two weekends ago I graduated from Texas State University with a Public Relations major and Business Administration minor. It is still crazy to actually think that I am a college graduate, and now full time adult. College was such an amazing four years, but I am ready to see where life takes me next. Working world here I come (yuck).  Read more…
