Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Ethel M Chocolate Tasting

Ethel M is definitely local favorite here in Vegas. 

The Ethel M Chocolate Factory is something of a hidden gem-especially since a number of our members had never been and some didn't even know it existed. I visited for the first time over a decade ago for a class assignment and I loved it.

In addition to a real chocolate factory, Ethel M also has a gorgeous cactus and botanical garden. It's truly beautiful, especially during the holidays when the plants are all lit up. 

We enjoyed a fun group outing a couple weeks ago. We started by exploring the cactus garden at sunset and then gathered in the chocolate tasting room for a lesson on how chocolate is made from start to finish. Concluding the lesson was a fun tasting of the different types of chocolates that Ethel M is widely known for (this was the best part, of course). 

After the tasting, we wandered the factory windows and observed the machines and workers (and no, it wasn't like that I Love Lucy episode). We finished our evening in the Ethel M chocolate store for some treats to take home with us!

Thank you so much to Ethel M for hosting our fabulous event! As usual, all opinions are my own.

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill

I love Mexican food and I love pizza.
So clearly, a place that has BOTH gets pretty high marks in my book! 

A couple weeks ago, we had a small group dinner at Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill, a really delicious, quick casual option in Summerlin. It's the only location in Las Vegas at the moment, but that should be changing soon!

We don't get a lot of more casual group outings so this was a lot of fun. It was very chill and the staff was amazing and informative! Plus- everything was so yummy. 

We started with the most delicious Nachos Grande, chips with guacamole and a fun assortment of salsas. We also sampled the red and white sangrias, two delicious flavored lemonades (including a really amazing watermelon basil), and some flavored iced tea. 

After the nachos, we tried the Chipotle BBQ Chicken Pizza and the Spicy Four Cheese Pizza. These pizzas were so good- the crusts were crispy and delicious and they had so much flavor and color. 

Next, we had a couple of the Power Plates with salmon, steak, tofu, and a variety of sides (like veggies, quinoa, beans, and yams). We also tried the Sharky's Quinoa Salad and the Harvest Quinoa Salad, Wild Caught Fish Tacos, Organic Tofu & Veggie Tacos, and the Stacked Chicken Enchiladas. Everything was so delicious and colorful. We also loved that everything was at the very least, relatively healthy and full of veggies (and no GMOs). 
It's so nice to not feel guilty about an amazing meal!

They also have a rewards app where you can earn points (and get free food) and order ahead (which I've come to love because I hate waiting for food). 

We had some fun event swag that's perfect for Halloween- Red Cherry Lash sets that will be so fun for all of the upcoming events and holidays; Acure dry shampoo for the days I don't have time to actually shampoo my hair; and Wish Formula home spa kits to help my skin detox!

Thank you so much Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill for hosting our event and thank you to Red Cherry Lash, Acure, and Wish Formula for the amazing goodies!

Nordstrom Fall Beauty Trend Event

Connecting with so many likeminded women in Las Vegas has brought so many fun opportunities. Having a great Network has allowed us to go to some pretty amazing events and experience a lot of fabulous outings.

One of our new members, Randle, hosted a wonderful event at Nordstrom inside Fashion Show Mall, recently to celebrate Fall beauty trends. We started with a VIP section at the brand presentations. A bunch of really amazing beauty brands told us about new products and best sellers we may not have know about as well as some pretty cool promotions and specials.

We got some amazing swag bags with all kinds of beauty and skincare goodies (and some fun new fragrances). We wandered the beauty section trying out some fun new products and best of all- we got some gorgeous full size MAC products! Our swag bags also had the cutest (and softest) Pom Pom throw blankets- perfect for the chillier weather that’s coming soon!

Beauty in the Everyday at The Gramercy

While I love hosting events, it’s so nice to attend some of the fabulous Vegas blogger events as a guest! Our friend, Christie Moeller if I Can Style U always puts together some fabulous events!

A couple weeks ago she hosted an amazing soiree at The Gramercy, a multi-use complex here in Las Vegas. I’ve been to the offices here a number of times and for this event, we got to explore the grounds a bit and experience more of what the space has to offer.

We started with a champagne toast by the pool and got to admire the facilities. We then made our way over to Pinches Tacos for a delicious brunch (and margaritas, of course). We enjoyed crunchy and soft tacos, chilaquiles, flautas, and churros. I love Pinches Tacos and the breakfast items were awesome!

After brunch, we split into separate groups and alternated between Nohea Nails and Portion Control. We headed to the salon first for some cute nail decals and they even gave us gift certificates for a full gel manicure. I will be going back for sure! The salon was beautiful and all of the staff were so friendly.

From here, we headed to Portion Control to sample some of their healthy menu items. We tried their Ahi Poke, Zucchini Pomodoro, and Veggie Lasagna. I’m not a huge fan of zucchini but everything was delicious! I’ll definitely be back.

To top off the afternoon, we all took home super soft Gramercy hoodies. Thank you so much, Christie and One 7 Communications for the amazing afternoon!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Drink, Paint, & Be Scary at Wine & Canvas

If you've followed my blog for a little while, you'll know I love Halloween.

One of the best things about running a blogger group is being able to have some pretty awesome events and Halloween has been no exception! We are fortunate enough to have a member who runs Wine & Canvas Las Vegas so it was the perfect place to host a fun Halloween sweets exchange, paint night, and costume party! 

I've done paint parties like this before but this one was such a blast! Most of the girls got dressed up and we had so many sweet snacks to last us through the night! Between the cookies, cupcakes, candy, and other treats, it's safe to say we all had a sugar rush!

We also partnered up with Sugarpova, who sent us bags and bags of their adorable Spooky Sours! I've been a huge fan of Sugarpova candies for a few years so when I thought of a fun candy sponsor, they were the first one that came to mind!

We picked a fun Halloween piece for the evening. It was so hard to pick a Halloween piece because they sent us a ton of gorgeous options!

It was so fun mingling and hanging out with great friends, girls I haven't seen in a while, and some awesome new members I'd never met! 

For our swag bags, we partnered with Acure Organics for these amazing red clay masks (they cleared my skin right up), Violent Lips for the cutest Pumpkin Spice lips, Biobelle for "After Party" masks, and Wish Formula for the perfect Halloween pampering piece- Bat Eye Masks!!!

A huge thank you to Wine & Canvas Las Vegas for hosting our event! Thank you to Acure Organics, Violent Lips, Biobelle, and Wish Formula for supplying the amazing swag!
