Give Back Luncheon at Andre's Bistro & Bar


One of my favorite events to attend is the Give Back Luncheon. 


Our good friend, Patty (Stilettos and Sin City) throws this event at least once a year and it's always AMAZING. Not only is it a wonderful time to catch up with friends and enjoy a great meal, it's a wonderful way to learn about a great cause. 


Each luncheon supports a different local charity and Patty always has representatives from the organization present to tell us about their cause and answer all of our questions. I love supporting a good cause but this is even more amazing because it allows everyone who attends a chance to really know where there donations go and how they are used!


This recent Give Back Luncheon was held at Andre's Bistro & Bar; a great local French restaurant. The service and food has always been fantastic so it was such a beautiful place to attend such a wonderful and meaningful event!


This luncheon was benefitting St Jude's Ranch for Children, an organization that provides so many services and programs for children of abuse and neglect. Hearing about this amazing cause and all of the things they do to better the lives of these children was so inspiring. 
I can't wait to volunteer and help out myself!



A huge thank you to Patty for throwing this fabulous event and educating us about this wonderful organization! Thank you Andre's Bistro & Bar for the delightful meal and the following sponsors for the beautiful gift bag goodies!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Menu Tasting at Sugarcane

There are so many amazing restaurants in Las Vegas that it literally would take years to burn through all of them. In the process of trying, we've found some really great favorites that we love.

One of our faves would definitely have to be Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill at Venetian/Palazzo Las Vegas. We discovered Sugarcane when we enjoyed their Side Door Happy Hour a few months ago (read all about that here). The food was delicious and the ambiance was awesome! 

We got the chance to enjoy a fun menu tasting last month and it was even better than our first visit!


We started with the Blue Fin Tuna Tartare and the Beet Mojitos.



This was quickly followed with the Goat Cheese Croquettes, Bacon Wrapped Dates.



The Japanese Fried Chicken and Crispy Beef Empanadas. A little story- we tried the empanadas on our last visit and they were only a limited offering but we were obsessed. When we saw them on the menu, we were THRILLED.



Next were the Beef Short Ribs and the Sweet Corn along with the Spice of Love cocktails.



Finally, we ended the meal with the Torrejas- a delicious French Toast with apples and cinnamon. 


Everything was delicious (even more than the first time) and we can't wait to go back!

A huge thank you to Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill for hosting us!!!
As always, all opinions are my own.

Tastemaker's Dinner at Masso Osteria with Scott Conant


I’m a huge Scott Conant fan so getting to attend his Tastemakers event last month at the brand new Masso Osteria at Red Rock was a huge deal for me! I loved DOCG when it was open at Cosmopolitan and I literally cried the day Eater Vegas reported that it closed. His Salted Caramel Budino is hands down my favorite dessert so I was thrilled to see it make a comeback at the new restaurant!


When Stephanie and I arrived at Masso, we honestly fan girled just a little... okay, maybe a lot. Scott Conant was honestly so sweet and chatted with us and let us take photos. Throughout the meal, he kept checking on us and was the most amazing host ever (and he’s beautiful).




The event menu was INSANE- when they say tasting menu, they aren’t kidding! We literally felt like we had tried the entire menu by the time we left! We couldn’t eat the food fast enough- every single time we broke into a dish, something new and even more amazing appeared!



We started with the Recco Style Garlic Bread, House Made Focaccia, and House-Made Stromboli.





Our next course was the Kale Salad, Antipasto Salad, Tuna Crudo, Classic Meatballs, Wood Roasted Clams Casino, and Wood Roasted Prawns.




For pastas, we tried the Pasta Al Pomodoro (I was super excited for this one because I’d tried it at an event a couple years ago and it was divine), Tagliatelle, Squid Ink Rigatoni, and Paccheri.




For main courses, we had the Tagliata Di Manzo, Cedar Roasted Whole Sea Bass, Wood Roasted Chicken, and Veal Chop Parmigiana. They also brought out a bunch of sides like the Beet Salad, Brussels Sprouts, Marble Potatoes, and Escarole della Nonna.






Finally, we were insanely full by the time dessert rolled around; however, you don’t skip dessert at a Scott Conant restaurant! My beloved Salted Caramel Budino was on the menu along with a Tiramisu Affogato and Basil Chocolate Mousse. I’m definitely coming back to sample the rest of the dessert menu ASAP!





We had so much fun celebrating the arrival of Masso Osteria! A huge thank you to Masso, Red Rock, and Chef Scott Conant for the amazing evening!!!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- Galentine's Day Brunch at Honey Salt


Being single doesn’t mean Valentines Day has to be a bummer. In fact, it’s way more fun spending it with girlfriends anyway! I don’t know any guys who would get dressed up for brunch, watch me scatter confetti, and sit patiently while I photographed our meal from every possible angle.


Lucky for me, I have a ton of girlfriends who will happily join me in doing just that. We got together a few days early for an amazing Galentine’s Day celebration at Honey Salt, one of the best brunch spots in town.


Stephanie and I got there super early to set up our table with the cutest Lulu In a Box pieces and a ton of really cool gifts from sponsors.


We had some amazing local bakeries send us delicious goodies (the softest cookies from The Sugar Cookie and some seriously fun boozy cupcakes from Sin City Cupcakes). We themed out the whole event so everything was perfectly girly and pink or red. The cookies were sweet and adorable and the cupcakes even came in a fun (and super yummy) gluten free lemon (with vodka).




How amazing are these Galentine’s Day chocolate boxes from Ethel M? We love supporting local and Ethel M is one of the best companies out of Las Vegas. They have an amazing chocolate factory that you can visit and a gorgeous cactus garden that they frequently decorate for holidays (their Christmas display is a local favorite).




I adore Not Soap Radio because their scents are always fun and their body washes double as really awesome bubble bath (without drying out your skin). I especially love the fun names and this Cupid wash was definitely a must have for Galentine’s Day!


We didn’t have flowers but these Rose Divine Oils from Pistache Skincare will last so much longer than roses anyway! We tried them out for the first time last year and were all obsessed with them so we were super excited to put them in our Galentine’s Day gift bags!

I’ve been using this Chapstick Duo nonstop ever since I got it. It’s super cute, easy to throw into my purse, and so moisturizing! I’m always on the hunt for new lip balms (Vegas is so dry) and I love this one!

Chesapeake Bay Candles are a household staple for me. Their scents are always warm and cozy so they’ve made it so much easier to get through the colder days!


These Violent Lips are so adorable and perfect for Galentine’s Day! I have some fun plans for those pink ones with the hearts!

To Go Spa has some seriously amazing lip masks. I originally wasn’t a fan of these kinds of lip masks because I’ve tried a few that really burned. These coconut ones don’t sting and left my lips feeling so soft and hydrated!




I love trying out new scents and this Zoella Beauty fragrance is so fun! I even love the cute girly bottle!

We got a fun selection of face serums from Bare Alchemy- they have one for every skin type!

Last but not least- I’m always looking for the perfect pink polish that looks pretty but not TOO pink and I think this Young Nails polish is the one! I peeked their other pink polished too and all of there were pretty and subtle!

Now, onto the food! We love Honey Salt- the food and the ambiance are awesome! We got to try a fun selection of their specialties and each ordered our own entree. Needless to say, we were stuffed!


We started with the Monkeybread.


I really wanted to try these Caramel Apple Pancakes and was so excited when they appeared at our table!


This Cocoa Puff French Toast was delicious!


I ordered the Corned Beef Hash BUT I snuck a ton of Stephanie’s Breakfast Nachos. And took a ton of pics of Alyssa's Benedict!


A huge thank you to our amazing sponsors and our partners at Honey Salt for hosting our Galentine’s Day Event!!! As usual, all opinions are my own!

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!
