Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- K-Beauty BBQ

Photo by Tyler Mills

Bloggers like themes. Well, I know I do.

A couple months ago (even before Margaritaville), I thought it would be fun to do a K-Beauty themed event and what better place to do it than a Korean BBQ restaurant? We have a ton of K BBQ joints in town; however, none of them seemed appropriate for the occasion. Out of nowhere, I found 8oz Korean Steak House & Bar, a brand new K BBQ spot that hadn't even opened yet.

8oz was literally the most perfect place we could have held our gathering. First- the food is AMAZING. I took food purchasing classes in college and the cuts of meat used at 8oz are so far superior to most of the other BBQ places in Las Vegas (the other spots seem to use choice meats at best and mostly cheap select cuts). The cuts here are prime so the price is higher; however, you really get what you pay for when it comes to meat. We had all kinds of side dishes and combo orders of three cuts of meat (my favorite was the wagyu but everything was delicious).

Second- the service was outstanding. The manager was helpful and attentive throughout the entire process of setting up the event. Working so many years in restaurants and hotels, I always measure the service by the first point of contact whether it's a phone call or an Instagram DM. The servers were extremely informative and did the most amazing job of explaining the food and preparing it perfectly for us (we didn't even have to cook it ourselves).

Last- the restaurant is adorable. Because we were doing a blogger event, we needed something photogenic and 8oz was gorgeous. The restaurant is clean, the lighting is chill, and the music is festive and fun. The twelve of us shared a long table in the side room (which is perfect for private events too) and we had the most amazing time eating delicious food, seeing familiar and new faces, and taking photos/video of everything.

A huge thank you to Jae Yoo and all of the 8oz Korean Steak House staff for hosting our event and making our evening so memorable and amazing! As always, all opinions are my own.

Style Collective Dinner at Black Sheep

I love trying out great new restaurants, especially with my Style Collective sisters!

Last weekend, we had a fun dinner at Black Sheep and it was amazing! The restaurant is gorgeous and looks like it belongs closer to the Strip than the quiet residential area where it's located.

We had some amazing swag courtesy of Patchology, Cre8skin, Good Day Chocolates, Not Soap Radio, and Verb

The restaurant gave us such a cute set-up; we wanted to photograph everything!

The baby octopus was delicious and I'm not a big octopus fan.

 These spring rolls were so good! Perfectly crispy and not full of filler.

The Hamachi was amazing.

Spicy wings with some delicious sauce (these wings were huge). 

The tuna tartare was delicious.

Black Sheep only has one dessert and really, they don't need others. This chocolate tres leches cake was to die for, seriously.

Thank you so much to Black Sheep for hosting us! As always, all opinions are my own.

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a few of my Vegas Lifestyle Influencer girls and I got to check out the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. attraction at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino

We went in with the last group so we wouldn't be disruptive and we took a ton of photos. The whole attraction is extremely interactive and immersive. You can borrow one of the mobile devices at the attraction or download the mobile app for the attraction onto your phone before you get there.

The whole attraction is filled with costumes, props, and portions of the movies' sets. It's pretty amazing to see all of this up close and in real life! There are also activities in the device and trivia questions accompany each exhibit room.

We saw Captain America's bike and my accessories kind of fit in perfectly.

Also, some of the costumes and the chamber from the first film!

The Hulk room is a bit loud and may be the only one that's mildly disturbing for small children. 

Vision's chamber was pretty cool to see.

Ant-Man's suit and the ant arrows on the floor.

You could even attempt to lift Mjolnir. 

I loved the room with the Iron Man suits. 

Thank you so much to the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. for hosting us!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Margaritaville

Immediately after the Culinary Dropout dinner I put together for the Vegas Lifestyle Influencers, I started planning another event. Since it's the dead of summer and we're in the desert, I thought it would be fun to have a tropical beach bash theme and maybe trick us all into believing we weren't in the desert for just a couple of hours.

I don't know if my scheme worked but I do know that we all had a great time! Margaritaville Las Vegas at the Flamingo Las Vegas graciously hosted our event and sent out an array of really delicious appetizers (nachos, crab dip, spring rolls, and the most delicious shrimp) along with rounds of tropical cocktails. The ambiance was fabulous- we had a great set-up right behind a row of "boats". 

We got some fun summer swag items that were perfect for the beach! Verb Haircare sent us some awesome shampoo/conditioner packs designed for summer hair. Coola Suncare sent a selection of fabulous products to keep us safe from the sun. Modern Siren Boutique sent over some of the most gorgeous handmade jewelry ever--and I'm not usually a jewelry fan! To make things even more festive, I used a bright yellow tulle to wrap up the goodies and used a homemade hair flower to clip the pouch together with green tissue leaves to mimic a pineapple. I think it worked out pretty well!

 (These top two photos are mine)

It is always so much fun meeting up with the blogger babes in town and this event was no exception! I got to see so many wonderful familiar faces as well as some gorgeous new friends. I cannot believe how quickly this little blogger group I created has grown in just two short months. It really shows how a great community can take root and thrive!

Thank you so much to Margaritaville Las Vegas, Modern Siren, Coola, and Verb for sponsoring our fabulous beach bash dinner! As usual, all opinions are mine.

Dunkin Donuts

Okay, has anyone else literally been miserable this summer?

I say this every single year but every summer, I feel like it's hotter than the last summer. Maybe it's global warming or maybe I just like to complain about it. I'm not really sure!

Anyway, Dunkin Donuts hooked me up with some awesome summer swag and I have to say, it made things way more comfortable (and fun)! We've tried ALL of their limited edition iced coffees and let me just say, they're all delicious. I think my favorite was the coconut cream pie flavor! I've also started working a new job and things have been crazy busy so I've been literally running on Dunkin Donuts iced coffee all week.

This pool floaty kicks all the other donut floaties' butts because it's way cuter and sturdier. One thing I learned- don't use a hair dryer to inflate it unless you want to spend an hour trying to inflate it. Also- nebulizers don't inflate floaties. The best advice I got was to go to the places where you get air for your tires. Genius!

I can never have enough cute pool/beach towels and this one takes the cake.

Last, I've been obsessed with the Dunkin Donuts app lately. I hate waiting in lines and gift cards get lost in my bag (I'm still waiting for an old Golden Spoon gift card from seven years ago to turn up). I love that I can load my gift cards into the app and order ahead. They also have some pretty fun bonuses for signing up (I got free coffee wooooooooot).

This post was sponsored by Dunkin Donuts; however, all opinions are my own (I think I've raved about donuts and coffee enough for you guys to know that I love/need them).
