Holiday Gift Guide

Can you believe Christmas is next month???

This year, I have the fewest amount of people to shop for which is funny because I have the most gift ideas this year! 

This post contains affiliate links and I will receive a commission if you make a purchase through some of these links. As usual, all opinions are my own!

Restaurant Gift Cards
This is such a perfect time of year to load up on gift cards. So many restaurants, like California Pizza Kitchen, offer bounceback coupons and bonus gift cards. Even if you're just buying a gift for yourself to use later, you can get some amazing extras if you buy gift cards during the holiday season.

Jo Malone Christmas Cracker Set
First off, this set is SO CUTE. Second, it's unisex. Third, it's a great value considering the regular price of Jo Malone products and it's a more economical way of testing out some of their different scents. Their scents are all designed to be layered; read more about that here.

I really like Stila's Liquid Lipsticks. Now, the stay does vary depending on the condition of your lips and sometimes it depends on the color too. That said, they aren't super drying and the colors are beautiful. I got the set that was released last year and I am drooling over this one too!

Have you seen some of the holiday sets at Victoria's Secret? We went in after an event and were there for at least an hour because that's how long it takes five girls to pick out cute lingerie sets! I love all the cute off shoulder sweaters and blouses that are designed to show just a little bit (or a lot) of lace.
Plus- Victoria's Secret is such a great place to load up on fun (and practical) stocking stuffers!

I love Philosophy body care products! This set has so many fun holiday scents AND the matching lip products. Great for keeping winter chapped lips at bay!

We love Ethel M! It's a fabulous local brand with a really amazing location (who doesn't want to visit a chocolate factory) and the chocolate is so delicious. Plus- chocolate every single day on the Advent Calendar? Yes, please! The best part? You get to pick your chocolates!!! 
Read more about our love for Ethel M here!

If you're like me (or know someone who is), your skin gets really stressed during the holidays! This Klairs set has two of my favorite skincare products- the Supple Preparation Face Toner and the Midnight Blue Calming Cream. Read about those products here

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- World Vegan Month Celebration at Violette's Vegan

I don’t like vegetables. As a child, my mom tried to force feed me some pretty unpleasant veggie dishes. That said, Vegan food did not excite me.

Even so, since we have plenty of events for our carnivorous members, we knew we needed to have a legit World Vegan Month celebration for our veggie loving friends. We even made sure all the swag was cruelty free and vegan as well!

We celebrated the evening at Violette’s Vegan; the most perfect place in town to hold such an event. The owner, Cyndy, is just the sweetest person and really takes pride in her business and the food.

We started with the Buffalo Cauliflower (I cannot stand cauliflower but this dish was so delicious), Red Rock Nachos, and Sassy Wings (cauliflower with a zesty seasoning and peanut sauce). So good!

We had a variety of amazing salads.

The entrees were amazing. 

We tried the Country Classic, Positively Pad Thai, Mama Mia, and other amazing dishes.

We also had Violette’s Mac N Cheeze (which was definitely a favorite) and the Chili Cheeze Fries. So good!

A bunch of us got milk shakes too- I sampled the peanut butter cup which was delicious!

We had some awesome Vegan swag to top off the night- Red Clay masks from Acure Organics, gorgeous handmade bracelets from Shanti Sisters, skincare from our local Perfectly Posh rep, Kara, and dry shampoo from Hair Dance! Everything was Vegan, natural, and cruelty free!

A huge thank you to Violette’s Vegan and all of our amazing sponsors for our World Vegan Month celebration! As usual, all opinions are my own.

The Neon Museum & Boneyard

A few weeks ago, we had the chance to visit the Neon Museum and Boneyard during their birthday celebration. They offered free admission and since most locals haven’t been here, we jumped at the chance to go!

It was so amazing seeing so many retro signs and classic pieces.

The Boneyard was a lot smaller than I expected.

Seeing the Stardust sign was really cool and bittersweet since I remember the day it was imploded.

Fitzgerald has since become The D but the sign still looks awesome.

The Boneyard doesn’t just hold signs for old casinos- often marquees get replaced and the classic signs come here.

Such a fun visit!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Serenity Spa at Westgate Las Vegas

I love going to the spa.

I always wanted to enjoy a nice spa day with friends but honestly, it's so hard to coordinate schedules during the day and in the middle of the week. 

Last week, Vegas Lifestyle Influencers had a fabulous opportunity to enjoy the Serenity Spa at Westgate Las Vegas. We all got to the spa early so that we could take photos before anyone else came into the spa and so we could enjoy the facilities. 

The Serenity Spa is a full-service spa with a salon. Like most resorts, there's a separate set of space for men and women. Unlike a lot of resorts, there's no stuffy vibe. Just comfortable. 

We all had mini services scheduled- our choice of a pedicure, mini facial, or mini massage. Afterwards and in between, we all sat in the lounge in our comfortable robes sipping water and just relaxing. One of the best parts was that we were not allowed to have our cellphones present once other guests entered the spa. That's such a huge thing to a group of influencers; however, it was honestly just so relaxing. 

After our treatments, we all enjoyed brunch at Sid's Cafe downstairs by the casino. The restaurant is really cute and the food was delicious. 

We sampled the traditional fruit plate as well a the Mojito fruit bowl and a giant cinnamon roll.

I ordered the French dip. Everything was amazing!

Afterwards, a few of us went back upstairs to enjoy the jacuzzi and the facilities for a while longer. It was such an amazing and relaxing way to spend the afternoon!

A huge thank you to Westgate Las Vegas, Serenity Spa, and Sid's Cafe for hosting us! 
As usual, all opinions are my own.

Jet Blue Mint Class VIP Launch

A few weeks ago, we got to attend a really awesome event for Jet Blue and the launch of their Mint class flights here in Las Vegas (they currently service Los Angeles and New York routes). The event was at the Keeping Memory Alive building which is an amazing architectural piece downtown.

The event was so much fun- we learned about the Mint class and the flight routes that would be offering the experience.

We got to test out their amazing lie-flat seats and see what the flight layout is like.

We sampled foods options that will be served on the flights. For instance, Milk Bar cookies!

The flights will also be serving ice cream from local vendors such as Coolhaus ice cream sandwiches on flights originating from LA.

We tried the Mint signature drink!

We even took home amenities kits from Hayward Luxury & Hopper Goods
These kits are so well equipped and stylish!

Thank you so much, Jet Blue for the fun evening!!!
