Forum Shops Fall Kickoff Event

Can you believe fall is just around the corner? How crazy is that?

This past weekend, I got to attend a really fun blogger event at the Forum Shops inside Caesars Palace. It was organized by our friend, Christie (I Can Style U) and featured some really great retailers who told us all about their new products and fall trends.

Our first stop was the Dior Beauty Boutique

We have one of five Dior Beauty Boutiques in the whole country so it was really cool getting to sip champagne and hear about their new products including the Joy fragrance which was Dior's first new fragrance in years. 

Our Dior Beauty also has a really cool spa suite for skincare treatments! 

Our next stop was Stuart Weitzman. I'm OBSESSED with their boots. They had a model outside showing off one of their adorable Veruka boot. They have some great new fall pieces and their boots are SO classic and beautiful. Their fall line-up has a lot of fun metal accents that look really put together and subtle. 

I really loved the Wolfe Bootie because they just feel like the perfect fall bootie to me! The Bridle Caramel is also a color I really love that goes so well with all my fall clothes. 

These Cylinder 75 sandals were also really cute in the Cabernet color.

Next, we went to Sam Edelman. I love Sam Edelman- their styles are classic but fun and whimsical at the same time. They had so many great sparkly pieces and a whole table of the prettiest ballet flats ever (I seriously wanted one of each). 

I really loved these Felicia flats because I have so much mustard yellow in my closet! The crushed velvet is super cute too. They had so many colors and textures- you could literally have several for each season! 

Our last retail stop was Ted Baker and it was AMAZING. The manager was so fun and enthusiastic and he had prepared a whole rolling rack for us of the new fall pieces! 

They have so many great florals that are beautiful and girly but still quirky and fun (the pretty pink one has iguanas in it, check out the Livliap pumps below to see). Their new fall pieces have lots of ruffles which I love and they weren't crazy or bulky looking (because that drives me nuts). 

I really love that Ted Baker has different collections for different occasions like the Ted Says Relax loungewear collection. 

The store itself was also stunning- I wanted to take pictures of EVERYTHING. The manager said all Ted Baker stores are unique and reflect their region- this one was clearly depicting the desert. 

To round out the event, we headed over to Sushi Roku for lunch. I love Sushi Roku- I took my mom here for her birthday a while back and the food is SO GOOD. They also have a really fun happy hour and they're one of the few restaurants I've been to that carry my favorite sake. We had round after round of amazing pieces like the sashimi, the beef wrapped asparagus, and the sea bass. 

They even had a fabulous selection of cocktails that they could make virgin without them just looking like juice (this was the Ginger Lychee Mojito). I've noticed if you ask for a specific cocktail and just tell them to sub the alcohol for club soda, they bring them out looking the same but in mocktail form instead of bringing you juice. So much prettier!

A huge thank you to Forum Shops for hosting this amazing event!!!

Vegas Lifestyle Influencers- DoNut Stress with Carl's Donuts

Who else loves a good donut?

I'm not gonna lie- donuts are everywhere now. It seems like every corner has some fancy shop that has some unique and strange donuts. Honestly, some of them are pretty good. Being a donut fiend, I'm willing to give any of them a try.

We had a fun event at Carl's Donuts last month and this one was one for the books! Carl's Donuts has been around for DECADES so they really know what they're doing. The owner is Carl's granddaughter, Amber; so you KNOW that the family recipes have been continued in the most authentic way!

We had a chance to enjoy a fun tasting one Sunday afternoon AND decorate our own custom donuts. They have all of the classic flavors and a ton of fun ones- and they don't just carry donuts! They have an amazing selection of house-made pastries and treats that are all delicious and fresh!

No joke- these glazed goodies lasted for DAYS. While most donuts would be stale and soggy three days later, these delicious pieces still tasted and felt fresh. How do they do that????

We had a fun table full of every kind of sprinkle.

Who knew there were so many kinds of sprinkles?

Their iced coffee is delicious!!!

Donut selfie wall!!!

My masterpieces.

Fun times with the ladies!!!

A huge thank you to Carl's Donuts for hosting us!!! We had a blast!
As usual, all opinions are my own!!!

Grand Canyon West with Grand Canyon Destinations

Our tour was complimentary from Grand Canyon Destinations; however, all opinions are my own!

Naturally, the Grand Canyon is on pretty much everyone's bucket list. 

I've visited a bunch of times in my life, but never as an adult and never with friends. When we had the opportunity to do a private tour to the West Rim, we jumped at the chance. We went as a small group of four (me, Stephanie, Miranda, and Melissa) and started bright and early. Grand Canyon Destinations does pick-ups and drop-offs at a ton of locations on the Strip so we picked Planet Hollywood since it's central and parking is still free (this is one of the reasons a lot of us locals love to shop and eat here- we save that precious parking money).

The drive up was super quiet and cheerful- we were all so excited and the Sprinter tour bus was super comfortable. The seats were spacious and there were charging ports so that we could keep all of our devices in check. Our driver, Rigo, had water and snacks for us at hand but we'd brought some of our own too so we really didn't need any! 

We made a quick stop on the way up so he could pick up our lunch and used the opportunity to take some fun photos!

The Grand Canyon West tour is pretty easy to follow- inside the Hualapai reservation, you use the provided transportation that is included with your entry fee. This has three different drop-off points and goes in a loop with shuttle buses.

We started at Hualapai Ranch which is a fun western themed area. There are shops and snack spots and a ton of photo opportunities!

Our next stop was Eagle Point- this is where you do the Sky Walk (if you choose to, that is). We were gifted passes for the Sky Walk and got so lucky because the line was relatively short! Stephanie and I are not fans of heights but we both made it comfortably- it's really not that bad!

You also can't take anything with you on the Sky Walk to avoid any safety hazards. That was comforting! There's a large amphitheatre and the Native American Village at this stop too- so many great photo ops and lots to learn!

Our last stop was Guano Point- there are some really cool photo stops here and a lot of areas where you can just sit and enjoy the views.

We did a lot of that!

A huge thank you to Grand Canyon Destinations for the amazing day trip with my friends!!!

Exploring the Palms with Urban Decay

A couple months ago, I had the priviledge of attending the local Urban Decay event with Stephanie!

I've been a huge Urban Decay fan for years and years. Back in the day, I coveted their bright colors and delicious body powders. It was always fun picking up new pieces!

The event was held at the newly remodeled Palms Las Vegas.

We started the evening at the Unknown Bar which is distinct because of the giant 13 foot Tiger Shark encased over the bar area. It's pretty insane!

We then were given a grand tour of the property's artwork- and there was a lot of amazing artwork!

A giant marble Barbie with Matel on the back!

This piece incorporated real butterflies!

This one was made especially for the Palms.

The art tour was so much fun and it was amazing getting to see all the new remodels firsthand!

The event concluded at Camden Cocktail Lounge for some super cool craft cocktails and snacks!

A huge thank you to Urban Decay and Palms Las Vegas for the amazing night!!!
