Blogger Crawl at Forum Shops

Earlier this month, I got to join a fun blogger crawl at the Forum Shops inside Caesars Palace. The fun morning was organized by our good friend, Christie Moeller (of I Can Style U) and started at the secret VIP Valet inside of the Forum Shops. 

We were greeted by a Centurion who was handing out mimosas (I wish I could start every Saturday like that) and we mingled for a little while until everyone arrived. Our handsome escort walked us over to Sephora (the mall wasn't even open yet so we had the whole place to ourselves).

We enjoyed champagne and breakfast pastries at Sephora while learning about fun new products in each department. We even got to play with some of the really gorgeous new shimmers from brands we already love (like Make Up For Ever, Stila, and Fenty Beauty

After Sephora, we headed over to Tory Burch for fruit cups and got to learn about the fun spring collection. I'm pretty sure it's safe to say we all wanted everything in the store. 

Our last stop was Lululemon where we got to enjoy some fun refreshments and explore the store. Since it was right before Chinese New Year, it was fun to see how so many of the stores incorporated red themes and dog elements, especially Lululemon!

Before we headed out, we all got a fun group shot with our handsome Centurion and one of the best surprises of all- a VIP Valet card for the Forum Shops. Since so many properties have hefty parking fees these days, it's so nice to know we have one place where we can park and enjoy our day without the added cost of parking!

A huge thank you to the Forum Shops for hosting us and Christie for putting together yet another fabulous event! As usual, all opinions are my own!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Chinese New Year at Hakkasan

I've always wanted to throw a really amazing Chinese New Year party.

In the past, we put out the Lazy Susan, eat vegetarian on New Year's Eve, and exchange red envelopes. While traditions are always fun, it was extra fun getting to enjoy a night with some of my favorite girls at a really amazing restaurant!

Most people only think of Hakkasan as a nightclub. While it's definitely a gorgeous club, the restaurant is amazing all on it's own. If you're looking for upscale Asian food, Hakkasan should definitely be on your radar. One of my favorite things about Hakkasan is the layout of the restaurant. Most of the bigger tables have an enclosed feel without being walled off. This allows you to have the feel of a private dining room without shelling out extra cash for one. 

We dined on the exclusive Chinese New Year menu-

The Happy Daisy Cocktail.
They even made some gorgeous mocktail virgins for us!

Schechuan Wind Dried Oysters with Lotus Room, Braised Beef Tongue and Caramelized Walnut and Crispy Scallop in Sweet Plum Sauce.

For our main courses, we had Wok-Fry Native Lobster in Superior Stock, Rhug Estate Organic Lamb in Seaweed Soy, Baked Chilean Se Bass with Kumquat Glaze and Abalone Fried Rice in Bean Curd Wrap. Everything was so delicious!

In addition to our delicious entrees, Hakkasan was SO accomodating with food allergies and brought out some amazing gluten free substitutes for our gluten intolerant girls!

For desert, we all enjoyed individual servings of the Golden Fortune which was a delightful gingery caramel treat with lots of lemongrass flavoring. So good!!!

Of course, no Chinese New Year celebration would be complete without red envelopes and ours were filled with so many goodies from local businesses- we had giftcards from Axehole Vegas, Glam Parlor, Humble Bee, Plantone's Italian Market, Bowlology, Groundswell Cafe, and Gelato di Milano. We can't wait to use all these awesome goodies together!

A huge thank you to Hakkasan Group for hosting our amazing dinner and to our fabulous sponsors for the lucky goodies! As usual, all opinions are my own.

Ladies Night at NARS Las Vegas

Who doesn’t love great makeup and cocktails? Our friend, Christie Moeller (of I Can Style U) hosted another fabulous evening at the NARS store inside the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace.

It was such a fun event- the event had the prettiest copper cocktail setup from Absolute Elyx and Avion Tequila.

There were fun hair touch-ups from Drybar.

 We all got to watch a live makeup tutorials from NARS artist, Saffire Cherry who did a fabulous demonstration on our good friend Patty (who runs Stilettos and Sin City). She demonstrated with the new spring collection and the Nars Radiance Foundation in Barcelona. 

Be sure to check out Patty's Instagram for more pics!

One of the perks of the event was an impossible to pass up discount (I stocked up on a couple of neutral pieces for office wear- the Mambo Eyeliner Pencil and a Matte Eyeshadow in Sophia). We also got to pick out a fabulous lip color (I picked a gorgeous hot pink that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day; it's a Velvet Lip Glide in Danceteria) and received some adorable Drybar hair ties as well (you can never have too many).

It's always a fun night when I get to hang out with Amber, Cielo, and Jet!

Thanks again for such a fabulous evening, NARS Las Vegas!!! As usual, all opinions are my own.

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Holiday Shopping Crawl at Tivoli Village

Photo by Tyler Mills

Holiday shopping can be such a drag, especially when you don't know where to go. The bigger box stores are easy but shopping local and supporting small businesses is so much more satisfying!

Tivoli Village has a huge variety of great small stores and boutiques that are local and privately owned. We got to host a fabulous group event with Tivoli for the holidays to highlight some of their amazing local boutiques and it was so much fun.

We started the day at Hub Modern Home. This store is gorgeous! They have an amazing variety of fun home goods and lots of artisan pieces as well. We enjoyed some holiday cocktails and took a ton of photos before we moved on to our next stop (but not before we were each given a really cool home gift to enjoy). I got a really adorable set of Bartender Glasses with cocktail recipes. So fun!!!

Our next stop was Gypsy 05. I've always loved walking into this store because everything is so colorful and it feels like I've just walked into a boho beach shop. Everything is beautiful! All the girls got scarves to take home and Stephanie and I were given the cutest beach roundies. I cannot wait to use these when the weather warms back up!

Next, we hit D'Annata and let me tell you, everyone just about died. The whole store has a rustic vibe with pops of pink and mint gree everywhere. It's basically an entire store of shabby chic goods. They had the best selection of delicious candles (I may have come back later to get one) and all kinds of beautiful home goods, bath and skincare products, and fun novelty pieces (like unicorn headbands).

We hit up LOOK Style Society next and got a fun little tour of the facilities (this place is beautiful) and a quick tutorial on brows and beach waves. LOOK is basically a one-stop shop- during my last visit, I got an eyebrow wax, make-up application, mini manicure and hair styling.

Last, we hit Echo & Rig for cocktails and gift bags. We learned a little bit about their butcher shop and toasted the end of the event!

Of course, the event wouldn't be complete without a fun group photo!

Unfortunately, it was insanely windy the entire day so all the girls who showed up were such troopers as we wandered the outdoor shopping complex in the crazy winds!!

Thank you so much to Tivoli Village and all the lovely host stores for having us!
